June Challenge Designer's Choice, Winner and Top Picks + Frequent Players Spotlight and Random Prize Drawing Winner

The entries in last month's Stamps & Border challenge were amazing! Thank you to everyone who shared their projects! The design team voted for our favorites, and we've got 4 top entries: a winner, 2 top picks, and a designer's choice (an entry that used STAMPlorations stamps and is chosen by Shery, STAMPlorations owner). Here they are!

STAMPlorations June Designer's Choice

Why it's Shery's choice: "Sian's card jumped at me from the gallery. I love how she creatively used the stamps in the Retro Mod Shapes set to create a colorful cascade of bubbles as her border. It's fun, bold, and happy!"

Congratulations, Sian! Please grab your designer's choice badge below to display on your blog. Send an email to with the subject "STAMPlorations June Designer's Choice" and we'll send you information on claiming your stamp set.
