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!

SASPC Summer Special 2020 - Top 5 and Prize Winners

 Servus, hi and welcome back! 

We're announcing the Top 5 and prize winners from our summer special today, but first I want to once more say a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who played along! You have all entered such amazing projects and if you look at our challenge inlinkz collections these are always a bundle of fabulously inspiring pieces - and this summer challenge made no exception to that! 

As usual our two generous sponsors DecoArt and boozybear are giving away a prize each and these go to two players who get randomly picked among the proper entries. 

this time a cool boozybear chipboard surprise package goes to 

#13 - Barbetka

and an amazing bundle of DecoArt premium joy goes to 

#45 - Chaitali 

Yay! Congrats on your prize wins, ladies! Please, contact me under my vonpappe email address given in the right sidebar, so I can forward your shipping infos to our sponsors. DecoArt winners, please provide a phone number as well. 



Top 5 

were as always hard to pick, but in the end we did it - and they are: 

Suman Pandit

with this awesome project


whose yellow mixed media goodness blew us away



"Queen of the Deep" did too. 


altered a somehow boring ship model and turned it 

into an amazing piece that tells a beautiful story!

and finally


who created the most gorgeous little 

vintage camera

Now, aren't these just amazingly inspiring and so beautifully and creatively done? 

Well done, ladies! Please, be free to grab our "badge of honour" for display on your blogs or other platforms. Thanks so much for playing along! 


Our actual September challenge is in full swing and if you would like to share your card, tag, altered project, canvas,...in steampunk or industrial style with us or win one of the two prizes all you have to do is play along. You can enter up to three projects - so there's three chances to get drawn as a winner. ;) 

We hope to see your amazing entry soon! ;)

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenge - September 2020

 Hi, servus and welcome back after a hopefully wonderful summer holiday! We're back to our usual schedule with monthly challenges after our summer special and - as always - the theme for our September challenge is

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

(though some of the design team obviously already got carried away by Halloween which is - I admit it - fast approaching. lol And as long as we can - with some good will - spot at least a hint of steampunk to your projects, everything's fine. ;) 

If you check by on the 15th you'll learn about the Top5 and prize winners from our summer special challenge and of course our generous sponsors DecoArt and boozybear are giving away a prize bundle each again this month - so your three allowed entries are three chances to winning one of these! 


is kicking off our September challenge with 

another of her cool mixed media handmade books



the "Season of the Witch" 

has already begun and she has created this amazing tag for you


has done another fantastic spread in her journal - 

it's about the collecting adventures of "Dr. Hibatsu"

(Bet you didn't know this was one of the many names her students christened her with during her teaching career!)


latest awesome mixed media panel

has a spooky touch to it, too.

and I 

- Claudia -

have been taking a break from crafting for the last weeks (due to health reasons),

so I am sharing a revisited steampunk themed project (that was a project for a different design team) that you might not know yet -

the "Numeric Goddess"

We are still in the midst of checking all your fantastic entries to our summer special challenge and 

we hope to see you play along with us again this month - your imagination and creativity really never fail to amaze us! 

The challenge is - as always - open until the end of the month and the normal rules apply (please, make sure you check out our few rules so we don't have to exclude anyone from prize drawings and Top5 votes!)

Hugs and happy crafting!

Claudia & the SASPC Team
