Take It Make It Challenge: September

Welcome to the launch of our September Challenge!

As you might remember, this year our challenge is alternating between 'Take A Stamp', and 'Take A Technique'....and this month our challenge is 'Take A Stamp'!
So that means..

September Challenge:
'Take A Stamp' 
Anything Goes
(as long as you have used a stamp somewhere!)

 Show us how unique you can be, create anything your imagination cares to dream up! Share your cards, journal pages, layouts, 3D assemblage or whatever else takes your fancy. Your project can be any theme, any colour you want... as long as you've stamped somewhere,  then you're good to go!

We have two prizes on offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for September is


STAMPlorations create and stock the most fabulous selection of stamps and stencils, soooo many to choose from, and such wonderful quality. A nice long browse through the selection on offer is thoroughly recommended!

 The prize this month is this wonderful stamp plate:

And also these two great stencils:

How cool are those stamps and stencils? So very very useful for all manner of projects! ? Our randomly drawn winner will be one lucky person! 
 As a very special offer for Craft Stamper blog readers, Shery has created a coupon code just for us.... a coupon that will entitle the user to FREE international shipping on any order over $20 (which works out to around £12.90)!
The code to enter is: CSTAKEITMAKEIT , and is good throughout the whole month of September (and you can use it with other STAMPlorations coupons too)
THANK YOU Shery, we appreciate your generosity!

Our second winner is our Design Winner. This winner is chosen by our DT, who all vote for their favourite design from all of the entries. This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, (with a 2 page spread of their very own!), they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post! 

I hope the prizes have given you all an incentive to win...... and how about some eye candy from the DT to give you some beautifully stamped  inspiration!



I have to say...there are some STUNNERS there, that's what I call inspiration!

  1. Lovely samples, love the variation from each member of the team and the vibrancy of the colours in some of the designs. Gorgeous pieces. Tracy x

  2. Thank you for another fun challenge and for the gorgeous DT inspirations Karen x

  3. so sorry but could someone delete entry number 15 for me please as the link is incorrect. I've entered again as entry 16 with the correct link. Thank you Craft Stamper xx

  4. Fabulous Inspiration by the Design Team and I'm happy to be joining you for the first time :)

  5. All done Yvonne! (the numbers then 'move back' one to fill in the gap where the deleted item was... so your entry at number 15 now was the previous number 16 entry!) xxxxxxx

  6. I've entered under Creative Chooke but although the link is correct, my photo isn't showing - oops!

    1. Don't worry Helen, the DT can still see your fab creation when we click the clink, so you won't miss out on anything! xxxxx

  7. Darn forgot the first rule... I added my Tim's tag to the challenge and obviously it isn't "an original" piece. If you delete it I'll replace it with something more suitable! Apologies...

  8. What a beautiful lineup! Congrats to Sara for her winning entry and WHAT a beautiful - I mean BEAUTIFUL - card she has showcased as guest artist! This is one lucky site to be able to share her truly inspiring work!

  9. Please see my comment on your Facebook page re the fact that people who are not familiar with blogging are unable to enter because they don't understand the instructions re deep links etc.

    1. Hi Chris! I answered over on FB, but I'll answer here as well! I see that you have a blog already, so entering the challenge should be simple. Just create a post as you have done before, and upload a picture to that post as you have done before. Then publish it. When you use the Linky Tool to enter the challenge, add in the deep link to that particular post, and hit submit! The difference between a regular link and a deep link is where the person who clicks that link ends up. So, for example, a deep link to your last blog posting is: . A regular link would just be A deep link to the project entered will enable to reader to be taken straight there to see the fabulous creation, a regular link means whoever is looking has to search around all over the blog to find the project, which when we have lots of pictures to look at isn't a plan! Hope this helps,Trish xxx

  10. I'm a bit late seeing and commenting, love love some of the samples here for this challenge, totally gorgeous! Coco x

  11. Absolutely amazing work by the team and the winner. Love coming here to browse and get inspired!!!
    Thanks for the wonderful challenge.
