STAMPlorations and the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + Special Stamp Release + Comment to Win!



Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! There's a fun blog hop starting today for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea or chocolate)! The hop is hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali Narla.


Amy and Chaitali have invited lots of sponsors for the hop, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a spring-themed project featuring coffee, tea and/or cocoa images. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. The linky is open until Friday, March 25. Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn! (Psst! Keep scrolling for a free digi stamp you can use in your projects!)



In line with the hop, we're officially releasing coffee and tea stamp sets by Becca Cruger and Shery Russ (me). Take a look:

  

Here's what the STAMPlorations girls have created:

BLOG CANDY ALERT!


Guess what? We will randomly pick THREE coffee- (or tea- or chocolate-) loving crafters to win prizes: one will win Becca's Bunnies 'N Beans stamp set, one will win my Always Tea Time stamp set, and one will win a $10 gift certificate to the shop. Simply leave a comment on this post and on the designers' blogs by 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 25. Easy peasy! We'll announce the winners on Sunday, March 27.


Okay, here's that free digi stamp you can use to create coffee projects to link up to the Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop for even more chances at the sponsor prizes. It's the digi stamp we currently offer on our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge page. If you use the image, be sure to link up your project there too because we draw two winners of gift certificates or stamp sets whenever we reach entries in multiples of 50 (we're at 768 entries and counting).
