September Challenge - Metallics

Hello, and welcome to the Christmas Craft Creations challenge for September!

This month our theme is Metallics - please make sure the theme is the focus point of your project. We have lots of dazzling inspiration for you from our launch team.

For those of you who play along with us this month, we have some lovely prizes up for grabs. In no particular order, they are:

Prize 1
Gemini by Crafters Companion - Opulent Swirls Die (contains 6 dies), donated by Angela

Prize 2
Aallandcreate by Bipash BK - The Old Vase stamp set, donated by Fiona

Prize 3
Mystery prize pack, donated by Charlotte (UK/EU only)
The prize winners will be picked randomly from among those entrants who have followed all the rules, which are in the sidebar if you need a refresher. If you have a preference as to which prize you'd like (or if there are any you definitely don't want) please leave a comment below letting me know, and I will do my best to keep those preferences in mind when drawing winners. 

We're changing things up with our Guest Designers! In addition to each month's DT Favourite winner having a chance to Guest Design with us the following month, we will also be having some other Guest Designers from time to time. More information on how you can put your name forward to be a Guest Designer will follow later in the year. Please do leave a comment below to let us know if you think this is a good idea, so I can gauge how much interest there is!

For this post, we have two guest designers. First, we are excited to have Penny of Penny Busch Creations joining us as a Guest Designer this month! The eagle-eyed amongst you may recall that Penny is a previous member of our Design Team, and we are thrilled to have her back with us this month. Here is the resplendent card she made:

We also have lovely Vicky Davies joining us this month. Vicky enjoys making all sorts of cards, not least of which are Christmas cards! Here is the sweet and sparkly card that Vicky made for this challenge:

Plus, we have a couple of new members joining the Launch Team this month! Please give them a warm welcome:

And here's the inspiration from the rest of team:

We hope that inspires you to join in with our challenge! Be sure to come back in two weeks to see the inspiration from the reminder team.

If you entered last month's challenge, check back next week to see if you were a prize winner, DT favourite or honourable mention!

We look forward to seeing your shimmering Christmas projects! The deadline for entering is Tuesday October 10th at 6pm GMT.

  1. Having Guest Designers from previous challenges and by invite or interest can only enlarge the number of craft artisan bloggers that are out in the world! It's a good idea!

  2. Love the idea of guest designers!!
