{STAMPlorations NEWS} Spotlight Projects, Anything Goes Challenge, Bi-Monthly Stamp Club

We've got lots of stuff brewing over here at STAMPlorations HQ and we're sharing three of those in this update:

Spotlight Projects

We started sharing spotlight projects in July and publishing them regularly here on the blog. We added this feature so we can share not just photos of the projects we make with STAMPlorations stamps, but our processes and techniques as well through step-by-step photo tutorials and videos. This way, you can replicate our projects or even apply the techniques we use on your own projects.

The STAMPlorations girls work hard to regularly bring these spotlight projects to you and we appreciate it whenever you take the time to share your thoughts, visit our personal blogs, and even create projects inspired by us and our projects!

We love our blog followers and friends, especially those who leave comments on our spotlight projects. So starting October, we will randomly pick one winner from all the comments left on the spotlight projects posts during the month to win a stamp set.  We publish at least 14 spotlight projects every month so plenty of chances to win! We'll pick a winner by the end of the month and announce it right here on the blog.

Here's one more good news: If you've left comments on the spotlight projects we've published since July, you're automatically entered into this month's drawing. On September 30, we'll randomly pick one commenter to win the Vignette: Old Type stamp set. If you're picked and you already own the set, you can choose a different stamp of equal or lesser value from the shop.

If you missed commenting on a previous spotlight project, there's still time to comment for an entry (or entries) to the drawing. You'll find all links to the spotlight projects here or on the tab above labeled "Spotlight Projects".

STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge

If you have STAMPlorations stamps, we have a new challenge for you! Our monthly and sketch challenges are open to all (whether or not they have STAMPlorations stamps), but we thought it would be great to reward you, our loyal customers and friends, with a challenge that's exclusive to you and give you a chance to win more stamps!

We've got a few simple rules and if you don't have any of our stamps yet, we've got you covered! Just click on the badge below for details. (You can also click on the tab above labeled "STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge".)

STAMPlorations Bi-Monthly Stamp Club

Back in August, we launched our bi-monthly stamp club. For just $21 (price includes shipping anywhere in the world), our happy stamp club members receive a 5" by 7" stamp set every other month. Bloom Sketches is the first set we are offering for August/September. (We sold out of it last week, but new stock is arriving this week.)

There are a number of perks that stamp club members get including free shipping anywhere, $5-$7 off the price of the set, a personal 15% off coupon to use on other products on the shop (unlike other online shops that limit you to just one coupon per order, we let our customers use multiple coupons for the best value), and a free 4" by 6" stamp set every third shipment (every 6 months).

We've already got the next 5" by 7" set produced and our current stamp club members have already previewed it. The October/November set will be available during the first week of October and you'll soon be seeing projects by the STAMPlorations girls showcasing this new stamp set. If you love unique stamps with a sketchy/artsy feel, we'd love to have you join our club!

That's about it for today's update. Thanks so much for following our blog and making our little community flourish!

Until the next update...Stamp with all your {he}ART!

Chief Cook and Stamper :o)


  1. Goodness, Shery - you are one incredibly busy gal (especially with Chief Cook as yet another of your roles. If I were given that title, we'd starve!), so extra THANK YOU for sharing all this juicy, exciting news with us! How generous to acknowledge comments so generously; wonderful opportunity to start, or add to, a STAMPlorations collection. The Anything Goes...yipppeeee! Yet more incentive to bring out those gems and craft-away! And, of course, the, deal. ever. Your rock!! Your DT rocks. STAMPlorations rocks!

    1. Thanks, Carol! Unfortunately, the "Cook" title I gave myself doesn't involve food. (I stink in the kitchen/I'm too lazy to spend more than 15 minutes in front of a stove.) What I'm cooking are ideas and more fun stuff to share to you and our friends.

      One of my goals is to encourage as many crafters to play with us and try our stamps, so play and fun are an important part of what we and my girls are doing at STAMPlorations.

      That said, I'm very grateful to you and your continued support. It's creative people like you that keep us wanting to improve and provide more fun for everyone!

      I so agree with you -- the girls in my design team rock! I can't ask for a better team because each one of them is a joy to have working her magic on my stamps. And STAMPlorations rocks not only because of my team, but also because of card artists like you! :o)

  2. Hooray! This sounds like a ton of fun! Can't wait to get creating!

  3. Excited for the next month:) Always love different creations from you and your talented DT's!!!

Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
