A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

Please, note, that this challenge blog is not related to any business and run without any profit by people, who do this for your and their own leisure time fun! Our only reward are your encouraging comments and your playing along and sharing steampunk fun and mixed media techniques. We appreciate every single entry and comment so much! Thank you for taking the time!

If you are new to this place, please, know that we are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!
For more information about the rules and the little "steampunk/industrial twist" we ask of you, please check the "about" stuff and then simply jump in and create!

If you are new to steampunk and not sure if this is "your thing", maybe take a look at our winners gallery on pinterest (use the linking button on our side bar). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

SanDee& amelie's October 2019 Top 5 and Prize Winners!

Hi, servus and welcome to the announcement of the Top 5 and prize winners from our October challenge!

Once more you have all wowed us with the entered projects and picking our favourites was a difficult job (well, honestly it almost always is...). Thank you all so much for always sharing your amazing and imaginative makes with us! This really means a lot to the team and me!

Sadly this time we had to exclude several entries from our Top 5 picks and prize draws this time as there was no mention and back link to our challenge blog (independent of where you are entering our challenges from - facebook, Instagram, your blogs or other social media platforms). It always makes me sad when we have to exclude anyone as my main goal is to make you all happy and have you enjoy some creative quality time on here...so, please, make sure you read our few challenge rules before you play along!!! Linking to our challenge blog is almost all we ask for (besides a few other simple rules to go by) - it is what keeps this blog running and helps at making our challenges known to a growing public - which honestly is our sole reward the team and I get for doing this in our spare time.

But let's move on to what makes us all happy ;) ...

The two prize winners were - as always - randomly drawn among all proper entries and this time the fabulous DecoArt prize bundle

goes to

entry # 20 


and a cool surprise package of awesome steampunk chippies designed and sold by boozybear

goes to 

entry # 6


Yay! Congrats, ladies, on your prize wins! Please, contact me under my email given in the side bar so I can forward your shipping details to our generous sponsors. DecoArt winners, please, also give a phone number as DecoArt will only ship if they are provided with a number that can be called in case of any delivery issues at customs and such.

And quickly on to our

 Top 5 

from the October challenge!
(as always they're presented in no particular order)

Well done, ladies! Thanks so much for playing along!!! Huge congrats on making our Top5 this time! Please, feel free to grab the Top5 badge for display on your blogs!


Our actual Winter Special Challenge is live and open until the end of December this time - so there are two months time instead of the usual one to maybe do a little steampunk or industrial style make in between enjoying preparing for Christmas! The team and I hope to see you play along with us soon!

Thank you for another year of being with us on this creative mixed media journey "with the special twist"!!! Thank you to our generous sponsors DecoArt and boozybear for being with us on this journey and for staying with us for another year filled with loads of awesome mixed media inspiration!!!! 

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and as always

hugs and happy Christmas and steampunk crafting!

SanDee and Amelie's Steampunk Challenges: Winter Special Challenge!

Hello and welcome friends, to our little corner of the Steampunk Universe! 

Maura here, tightening up my corset and getting ready for the holidays.   We love having you here, playing along with us in a mixed media, steampunk and industrial style!

We have a Winter Special  challenge for the months of November and December...we know how busy the holiday times can be for all of us, so this will give you extra time to create and share, and still enjoy all the holiday fun. We also change the usual rule of three entries per person and challenge to five entries for our specials challenges - so there are five chances to win one of the two prizes instead of the usual three!

The design team has some great inspiration for you, and wishes you a relaxing and joyful holiday season!

 Our Winter Special  challenge is, as usual... 

 Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial 

 We welcome all types of projects (except digitally created) and encourage everyone, from beginner to  experienced to join us every month and share your creations. Show us your tags, cards, canvas, art journal, altered objects...whatever you can imagine that fits our theme of steampunk/industrial. 
We truly are in awe of the imagination and creativity of you, our players, and look forward each challenge to see where your creative muse took you!
  Please be sure to link our URL to your blog post, Facebook page, Instagram page or wherever you are posting your project, so that we can consider you for our Top 5 and prize winners. 

 Many thanks to our wonderful and generous sponsors, 

 and boozybear

 ...for keeping the cogs and gears turning here at SASPC! At the end of each challenge, two winners are randomly selected from all proper entries (be sure to check out our posted rules) and will either get an awesome DecoArt Media prize package, or an amazing chipboard package. 

 Now...on to the awesome makes from our wonderful team! 

is wishing you all happy holidays and hopes that creating fallen snow on her steampunk tag will do its magic so she will have a white X-mas in Vienna this year.

is getting us ready for holiday dinners with her delicious recipe for some beautiful fish

Happy Cauldron

Let's all cook together...Menu of the day: Do more of what makes you happy!!

is also dreaming of a white Christmas
as her beautiful project shows

Come on! I dare you...to join us and have some steampunk fun!

Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the Steampunk Universe. We hope to see you playing along with us these months in our steampunk/industrial challenge which is open until the end of December.

 Remember, we will have two prize draws and choose the design team's Top 5!  Top 5 for the Winter Special  and prize winners will be posted on January 15th,  so be sure to pop back to check that out.

 Time to put your top hat on, add a few jingle bells and get crafting with us! 
Hugs, happy holidays, and happy crafting!

 Maura & the SASPC Team
