{Paper Goods Showcase} Retro Fashionistas ATC


A happy August Monday, STAMPfriends! We've got another paper goods post. Our paper goods -- card fronts, colorables, and ephemera -- are all created for artsy crafters like you. Each pack is professionally printed on 120# (325 gsm) matte white cardstock. 

Have you checked out our Paper Goods Subscription service? Starting at just $17 (subscription price includes shipping anywhere in the world!), you get to pick 4 paper goods products (a $28 value) every 6 weeks. There are a couple of super perks as well.

We continue to share projects by the STAMPgirls featuring our paper goods -- they're here to give you ideas on how you can use the products creatively in your own projects. You'll find previous paper goods posts here.

Today STAMPgirl Shirley is sharing projects she created featuring the Retro Fashionistas ATC.

August Summer Challenge


Happy August! Our regular challenges are on summer break. The STAMPgirls will be back in October. In the meantime, we have our summer challenges for those of you who like to play. Thanks to all of you who played last month. Winners will be announced on August 10.

  • Link up a maximum of SIX (6) projects (any type, any theme; 1 project per blog post).
  • Use supplies you have on hand -- STAMPlorations products are not required, although if you do use our product(s) and you are randomly picked as winner, you get an extra prize.
  • Bloggers, you must display our graphic above in your blog post and have a text link back to this post to qualify for our prizes.
  • For August, we'll randomly draw FIVE (5) players to each receive a $12 prize code to the store. If you used a STAMPlorations product in your winning entry, you get a bonus -- your choice of product (up to $7 value) in the store in addition to the $12 prize code :o)

The STAMPgirls may be on summer break but we still have some fabulous inspiration:

Following this blog by email

Hello, STAMPfriends! Last month, I announced that I was switching from Feedburner to Follow.it for those of you who would like to continue receiving our blog posts by email. This is because Feedburner decided to ditch its email delivery service for Blogger.

I successfully imported this blog's Feedburner subscribers list to my follow.it account last month but a recent check on the current subscribers list shows many unconfirmed subscribers. If you have been receiving our blog posts by email through follow.it but have not confirmed, you will see this message at the top of every email you receive:

You receive this email because publisher of feed STAMPlorations imported you to this list, claiming you were already subscribed to this content in other ways previously. Please confirm that this is correct and you want to receive this content by clicking here, or decline if you don't want to receive it.


I would appreciate it if you can either confirm your subscription or decline it and do so by Sunday night, August 1. It's because I would like to maintain a clean list -- one where subscribers clearly want to receive updates on this blog by email. This helps me know that you really, really want to see and read the content we share on this blog. Then on Monday, August 2, I will be manually removing email addresses of those who have not confirmed their follow.it subscription to this blog.

(If you're not seeing the above message in the email you receive from our Follow.it email for this blog, you can relax -- you don't need to do anything else, and thank you for being a confirmed subscriber of the STAMPlorations blog!)

If you're not a subscriber yet, you can follow our blog by clicking the button below. Make sure you confirm your subscription as well.

Or you can also put in your email address on the follow-by-email form found on the sidebar on the right and hit Subscribe.

Thanks so much for your understanding and patience, and for continuing to support our blog! Have a great weekend!

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Quick and Not-So-Messy Mixed Media ATCs


Happy Friday, STAMPlorations friends! Today we have a mixed media tutorial from STAMPgirl MariLynn. Make sure you comment on this post for a chance at a $7 prize code. We will be drawing 10 winners, with the winners randomly drawn from all posts published during the month. The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have.

Sometimes when we think of mixed media or artist trading cards, we think of messes. Well at least I usually do. Messes can be so much fun. But sometimes there isn't enough time to play and get things cleaned up for real life. That is where a project like I am going to show you comes in. These Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards were not only not very messy but they came together very quickly because most of the work is already done by using the ephemera cards and tiles.
