The weather is showing us mostly grey skies, with some rain, and cold, so maybe we will all feel better if we see some


Here is some inspiration from the designteam:

Winner of challenge 2, and reminder for challenge 3

All designers have cast their votes, and the winner is .............

Rosie !!!!

Congratulations Rosie! If you are visiting the Art Specially show this weekend you can claim your prize of 10 euro shop credit right there, and if you are not coming to the show you can use your credit for an internet order.

Number 2 was the first card of Ike (factor 50), number 3 was Renate and number 4 was Hanne. It was a close call this time, just 1 point in between numbers 2, 3 and 4.
The artwork was very, very beautiful, you all gave us a hard time deciding what was the most beautiful, most intricate and most theme-related piece. 
I hope you will all keep sending in artwork, and give us a hard time every month! :-)))

Please don't forget challenge 3, there's only 1 entry so far. We still need at least 5, so put some stamps on your desk and start stamping! There is no specific theme, so you can use the stamps you like most (as long as they are being sold by De Stempelwinkel of course), and when your card is ready making the envelope is not that difficult anymore. Just repeat one of the stamps you used, that's the most simple way of doing it. When you want to make your envelope stand out more you can stamp more, don't forget to keep an open space for the address (and that may be De Stempelwinkel, if you want to become famous... I can show it in my booth/shop!)

Have a nice weekend,

Jetske Masmeijer

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:

Just one more week to go, and only 3 entries so far!
We need at least 5 entries to choose a winner from, so find yourself some paper, stamps and ink and make something sunny!

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.

Here is some inspiration from the designteam:
