Hello STAMPlorations Friends! Welcome to Tuesday's Inspiration post.

Over the summer, the girls from the Inspiration team are showcasing products of their choice. This week they have used stamps, dies and stencils to create an array of colorful cards.

We'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration posts, have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate.

{New Arrivals} + Free Shipping @ STAMPlorations

We've added a bunch of new products to the store in the last couple of weeks! See them all here.

Aside from the fabulous new stamps from The Bee's Knees (Big Owls and Little Owls) and Dee's Artsy Impressions (Beautiful You and Snow Much), as well as the awesome new stencils from Sanna Lippert Designs (the Art Flowers 1 is my personal favorite!), we've got new clear sticker packs in fun designs and two cover plate dies.

There's the sentiment stickers (Just Everyday Greetings, Just Thank You, Just Thankful). Our sentiment stickers are awesome for quick cards and card kits -- check back on Wednesday because STAMPgirl Karola has a special post on putting together a card kit featuring our clear stickers and stencils.

Then we've got some fun mixed media and newsprint background stickers. Keep your eyes peeled because you'll soon see them in upcoming projects in special posts.

We also have 2 brand new cover plate dies in our signature style: Zen Doodled Birthday Cake and Zen Doodled Birthday Gifts. The STAMPgirls will be showcasing these dies in October when we do our (very late) 6th birthday celebration.

As usual, all new products in the store are 10% off instantly -- and if you're a Build Your Own Craft Stash subscriber, you can use your personal discount code for an extra 25%, 30%, or 40% off. Our STAMPgirls also have a 20% discount code to share so if you follow them, you'll find their code on their blogs.

It's been a super-hectic summer here at STAMPlorations HQ, with lots going on behind the scenes in preparation for when we resume regular programming here in October, which is why we've been mostly doing small releases and special posts.

That and throw in an overseas trip that we'll be going to in early September. From September 3 to 22, we'll be away visiting my family and to settle a few things related to my late dad's affairs. Many of you have known/read about my dad's unexpected passing last May and it was the main reason I decided to delay our 6th birthday celebration in June and why I essentially lost my creative mojo -- I was unable to create anything for about 12 weeks and it's only recently that I'm able to draw again and actually finish some new stamp designs. I'm hoping that seeing my family and visiting my dad's grave will give me some kind of closure. It will also be a good time for Kat and Winter to meet their aunts, uncles, cousins, and a hundred or so more relatives just on my mom's side. (My mom has 11 siblings and I have given up on counting how many cousins and second cousins I have since a couple or so seem to be born every year.) Hubby and I would appreciate prayers and good vibes sent our way -- this is our first time traveling with toddlers and we would like to be able to survive both 19-hour-long flights ;-)

Pardon me for rambling on but this post is supposed to be for the new arrivals in the store + a free shipping special until the end of August! But I also wanted to mention that while we're away, the store will be open to take orders the whole of September -- with a special end-of-summer sale. However, shipping will not resume until after we're back and have had a couple of days to settle back in. I do have a shipping department but it has but one employee -- me! So I'm estimating all orders placed in September will start shipping on September 26. (I have tried recruiting the hubby before but we have decided he is better off watching the girls and getting jumped on by them than try to package orders exactly the way I'd like them packaged.)

Orders placed by August 31 will be shipped out by September 2 so here's a heads up if you've been thinking of ordering...and snagging some cool stamps, coloring books, and clear stickers this month -- they're 25% to 30% off with coupon codes, which can all be used in one order.

Speaking of shipping...starting today and until the end of the month, all orders $25 and up ship free domestically with code SHIPFREE25. This code can be combined with our current promotion codes too!


Put at least $25 worth of products in your cart then use code SHIPFREE25 on checkout.

*Free shipping offer to US addresses only. Code will take $5 off shipping to Canada and other countries. Code can be combined with current promotion codes. Free shipping code limited to 3 uses per customer/shipping address. Ends Saturday, August 31, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.

{Stencil Sunday} Sanna's Stunning Stenciled Mixed Media Cards


Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! We are back with another helping of Stencil Sunday goodness! On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of the month, the STAMPgirls are sharing their projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. And each month, we'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts for the month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

For today's Stencil Sunday post, STAMPgirl Sanna used several stencils she designed to create a variety of mixed media projects. You won't want to miss her technique video as well!

{Spotlight Project} Monika Plays With Water And Ink


Hello STAMPlorations Friends! As you've probably noticed, I'm really liking Deepti's new set Beautiful You. Playing with it the other day, I made this 'nature spirit' inspired card.


Let me take you through my process of how it came about.
