Challenge 3

I am at the Creativa in Dortmund right now, and the internet in our "home" for this week was down.
So I cannot launch challenge 3 right now, but I will do that later this week in a free moment.
The "theme" will be: make a card with a matching envelope (mail art).
You can start already, and enter your work later when the post is ready.
Have fun!

 Here is some inspiration from the designteam:

To the three ladies who did enter their beautiful artwork already: you may submit more than one piece of art, the odds of winning the challenge will only increase! :-)

The winner of challenge 1-2017 !!!

Sorry for being late, but I had to wait for a vote. All points are now added up, and the winner is.......


with her beautiful landscape card with the little rabbit in the foreground.

Congratulations, Carola! You can use your credit of 10 euro in the webshop or at one of the shows (Creativa or Art Specially)

The runners up in this challenge are Dora (2nd place) and Hanne and the Shakespeare card on a shared 3rd place.

Please don't forget the new challenge, the SUNSHINE theme is not that difficult, is it? Today I was lucky, lots of sunshine this afternoon! That made me happy, but I would be even more happy if there were enough entries in the second challenge to choose  a winner! We need at least 5 entries!

So put some sunny colours of ink on your desk and start stamping!

Challenge 2 -2017

The first challenge has ended, and we have 10 entries to choose a winner from! Thank you all very much for making it difficult for us!
I hope you will all continue to submit your beautiful artwork, and please keep in mind that you can send us as many entries as you want!

Today the sun is shining abundantly, and it makes me so happy! So I think it is a good idea to make everybody happy with our next challenge.
The them for challenge 2 is:

You can make a scenery with sunshine in it, or something with suns, or something with sunny colours like yellow and orange. It can be a card, or an art journal page, or a beautiful box, or a wall hanger, or whatever you come up with when you think about sunshine. Maybe even sunglasses! :-)

Make sure that the main stamp in your work is from De Stempelwinkel (or one of the brands De Stempelwinkel is selling). You have until March 14th to submit your artwork.

The winner of challenge 1 will be announced on March 1st.

To all 65 followers who have not yet submitted their artwork

This is a reminder for our first challenge in 2017! You have got another 14 days to make your artwork, no fixed theme, anything goes! When there were no challenges for a while everybody was asking for a new challenge, and now there is one.... where are you???? If you need inspiration, take a look at  the designteamblog  Something new and inspiring every other day! And when you scroll down you will find the most recent artwork from the designteam. And who would not like to win a 10 euro shop credit? But... there have to be at least 5 entries! Up till now there are only 4 entries, so if nothing happens there will be no prizewinner. Tip for those who have already posted something: you may post more than once, so if you want to make sure the prize will be available, just enter a second piece of artwork. More chance to win! :-)

CHALLENGE 1 - 2017


To make an easy start.... create anything you wish, with any theme that strikes your fancy.....
the only rule is it must have stamps stocked by
DE STEMPELWINKEL on it somewhere!

Please keep the emphasis on STAMPING..... using a DE-STEMPELWINKEL stocked stamp as your main feature, (please read through the rules on the sidebar) you can create anything you wish...
for example... a card, an ATC, art journal page, 3D item, altered art,home decor, tags, to name but a few. DE-STEMPELWINKEL stocks such a huge, diverse range of stamps that you'll never be short of the 'right' stamp for a project.

We shall run this challenge for 1 MONTH, so if you need to order something there is enough time left to enter your work.

Here is a little inspiration for you from the designteam:
