Candy time

Good morning to you all, I'm sure lots of you are busy with Christmas preparations so I will keep this short and sweet.

I realised this week that were close approaching 1,000 followers so in the time honoured blog land fashion I thought it was only right that we had some candy, a set of Aquamarkers and a set of large size Go Kreate dies and I will choose two winners from our challenge entrants and commentors once we pass that magic mark. Please feel free to pop the above picture on your sidebar to help us spread the word.

We also decided to remove the restriction on how many challenges you can combine, we appreciate that not everybody can spare the resources to make a card for a specific challenge and in future:

* You can combine our challenge along with any others of your choice. 

* You can also enter up to three cards or projects each month of your choosing.

Our December theme sponsored by Visible Image who are offering a great collection of stamps above to the lucky winner is TreeMendous and we would like to see any sort of tree on your work, be it a stamped image, die cuts and of course any sort of Christmas trees.

Here are a couple more inspirational cards from the design team.

Tipsy Tree, very seasonal

From two family dogs to two more - yep that's right !

Enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you have planned and keep warm, it's bitterly cold here in the Fens.

December Challenge

Good morning to you all and welcome to our December challenge here at Stamping Sensations.

We have a great new theme for you and are also very pleased to introduce you to another wonderful sponsor Visible Image who you can read more about further down this post.

First of all I need to tell you that we have made a change to one of our rules..............

******you can now enter our challenge three times******

and they can all be cards if you wish, or different types of artwork, it's up to you, but please still remember that your entries can be combined with no more than five other challenges. So now for this month theme which is......................


It might sound an odd one to you at first, but really it couldn't be simpler as all we want to see is some kind of tree somewhere on your work and as it's almost Christmas I have a feeling there will be a good few Christmas trees propping up which will be great to get us into the festive spirit.

Now to tell you about our sponsor Visible Image and show you the wonderful prize they are offering to one very lucky winner......just look at all those stamps and I can tell you that the images stamp out so beautiful and crisp. Some of the DT's work features their stamps and you will find links to them and some of those in the prize in the thumbnail pictures at the bottom of this post.

Isn't that fab prize and now here is a little bit about the company.......................

Visible Image is a clear stamp designer and manufacturer based in South Wales, run by Mark & Helen. 

Our stamps are made with the finest photopolymer available, each stamp is 4mm thick and hand cut ready for use. They stamp perfectly first time, every time, with a clean crisp image. We aim to provide high quality stamps at affordable prices, and we're passionate about creating fantastic stamps so you can make amazing creations! 

Now for some inspiration from the design team who have as always come up with a great and varied selection of inspiration on the theme, plus we have a Guest Designer who has made a really pretty candle holder to inspire you all.............
