STAMPlorations and the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + Extra Prizes!


Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! We're happy to share the news that there's a holiday blog hop starting right this minute for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee! The hop is hosted by the talented Amy Tsuruta. She was our special guest designer during the stamp release blog hop we did last month.

Amy has done an awesome job lining up 27 sponsors, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a coffee or any hot holiday beverage card. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on Amy's blog. The linky is open until Friday, December 12, at 11:55 p.m. PST (GMT -800) and Amy will be randomly drawing winners of the sponsor prizes from all the projects linked up! 



Here's a card to inspire you:





BLOG CANDY ALERT!

With the holidays upon us, though, it's understandable that some of us may be a little stretched for time. We don't want you to miss out on this fun blog hop, so in case you're not able to link up a project or two by Friday, you could still win a prize! 

Here on the STAMPlorations blog, you could win one of two $10 gift certificates to use on the shop or the Vignette: Eat Drink Be Merry stamp set.

For a chance to win one of the gift certificates, answer this question: What's your favorite holiday drink? And then share your answer here on the blog and on our Facebook page. 

Like our Facebook page and then leave a comment on the Holiday Coffee Lovers blog hop post there -- you can't miss it, it's the very top post and the first thing you'll see when you check out the page. --> Go to our Facebook page for an entry.
Comment on this post by telling us what your favorite holiday drink is.
Don't have or use Facebook? Not a problem -- just comment on this blog post! We'll randomly draw one winner from Facebook and one from here. Commenting on both places just increases your chances of winning because you get 2 entries instead of 1.

For a shot at the stamp set, simply follow the STAMPlorations board on Pinterest.
Click here to go to the STAMPlorations board on Pinterest and then click on the "Follow Board" button on the top right of the page. We've got notifications on so we'll know who has started following us.
Already following us on Pinterest? Leave a comment on this post with the name you're using on Pinterest so we can make sure to throw your name in the hat for the random drawing. Already have the stamp set we're offering as a prize? Not a problem either -- you can sub a different set of equal or lesser value.

You have until Sunday, November 14, to comment here and/or on our Facebook page, as well as follow our Pinterest board. We'll be picking three winners: two who will each receive a $10 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations shop and one who will receive the stamp set. We'll announce who they are on December 20. Easy enough, right? :o)

Happy hopping!
