Take It Make It Challenge: July

Welcome to the Craft Stamper July Take It, Make It challenge!
Take the theme or technique, and then Make it your own :)

This month is a 'Take A Stamp' month, so the theme is:

Anything Goes!
-just remember to add stamping in there 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 colour you want... as long as you've stamped somewhere, then you're good to go!

We have two prizes on offer, as always. The first is the Sponsor Prize, and the winner of this will be randomly chosen from all the eligible entries of the challenge. To make sure your project is eligible to win, make sure you have followed our challenge guidelines. These can be found on our sidebar over here ---------->
and also in a tab under the banner at the top.
PLEASE REMEMBER: We only want to see ONE project in each individual blog post entry!
A set counts as more than one :)
We are proud to announce our sponsor this month is....

Calico Craft Parts

Calico Craft Parts stock an ENORMOUS range of laser cut MDF and chipboard shapes. From the brand new range of houses, through ATB cube kits and lots and lots of flora, fauna , seaside and seasonal shapes, there are simply too many products to mention! Lots of wonderful substrates for all you mixed media people to get creative with, and also plenty for those looking for a simple embellishment for a CAS card!

The prize on offer for our randomly selected winner is this bundle of goodies!


We have... 3 aperture ATB kits, 4 beach/nautical mini shape sheets, a seashell frame ATC blank, a nautical shrine kit. The ATBs and the shrine kit come in a flat pack as you can see, you will need to glue them together once you receive them. Easily done, it takes minutes :)
As always, we will also have a Design Winner this month.
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!

  1. Beautiful work by the Design Team as always.

  2. Thank you for another month of incredible creations!
    I realized that I'd neglected to put in a direct link to my card (woops) so I linked up twice - the second has the direct link. Sorry for hogging the linkup space (but I couldn't figure out how to delete). :)

  3. Very inspiring projects by the Design Team!

  8. I've seen some of these elsewhere, but I forget where now.
    There are some fab seaside inspired creations here and I think these are especially striking.

  9. Do we have to have our own blogs to enter these competitions? It's just that I read when you put your card into this month's challenge please put a link to the blog post!! I don't understand. Thanks in advance. Andrea

    1. Hello Andrea,
      The link up tool requires a web based URL in order for it to work. With most entrants this url will be the page on their blog, which is why the blog part is specifically mentioned in the guidelines. However, any web based pictures can be linked to, we have entrants linking to their Flickr galleries for example, or galleries hosted on forums. As long as the project is published on the web somewhere, and you can copy and paste the address of that 'somewhere' then the link up tool will work.
      The 'please put a link to the blog post' request means we require entrants to link back to the Craft Stamper blog somewhere within their own entries, be that in a blog post or in the title/description of a gallery card hosted elsewhere on the web. Hope that helps!

  10. Loving the challenge and great inspiration from the design team, Angela x
