All I Want for Christmas is You and a Design Team Call

 Hello and welcome to our first challenge of 2022!

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for our Anything Christmas Goes Challenge at the end of last year - to see if you were our winner or part of the Top 3 have a look here.

Before I talk about today's new challenge, we are saying goodbye to our team member Shell - you are going to be greatly missed and we want to wish you all the best for the future.

We need to add some new members to the team so we are having a:


Here's what you need to know:

1. You need to have a blog and a Facebook account - our DT group is on Facebook.

2. You will be making one card for each monthly challenge and most of the time you will be using an image from one of our sponsors so you must be comfortable using digi stamps.

3. Everyone takes it in turn to host challenges - picking a theme, choosing the sponsor images to work with and then choosing the top 3 card once the challenge has finished.

4. You will need to comment on the challenge entries each month - this will be either one or two number in ten depending on how many team members we have.

5. You must be a team player and willing to share your cards each month to promote our sponsors and the challenge.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please e-mail me at: and tell me a bit about yourself and give me a link to your blog.

The Design Team call will run until the end of this challenge.

So now back to today's new challenge and our theme is chosen by Michelle is:

And here's a bit about All Dressed Up:

Hi, my names Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital.

 Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within children's wear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork.

All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, Ive been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favorite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!

On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.

The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what were creating at the moment.

And here is some inspiration from our wonderful Design Team:

Wonderful inspiration - thank you ladies!
