Inspiration Projects + Take Up the NBUS Challenge!

The STAMPlorations girls have been having a lot of fun with their stamps and inks the past couple of weeks. Have a look! (Each card is linked to their personal blogs so they'd be thrilled if you stopped by!)




Aren't those cards gorgeous? These talented ladies constantly put me in awe. Yep, they've been with STAMPlorations for a year and they still get me all excited whenever I see the cards they make using the stamps I designed! I count myself blessed to have an incredibly talented team.

Their cards are perfect reminders that there's still plenty of time for you to link up to the January Challenge, where the theme is STAMPS & INKS! A challenge can't get any easier than that!

And Sketch Challenge #26 has just started so why not use the sketch to create a card and link it to both challenges?

Aaaand...if you happen to use STAMPlorations stamps in your fab card, make sure to link it up to our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge. The gallery is growing and being filled by super-creative projects. 

We're so happy about it we decided that when the 150th project is linked up, we'll be drawing not one but THREE winners -- one from each batch of 50 entries -- to win either a $10 gift certificate to the shop or 1 (3" by 5") stamp set! 

Yep, keep linking up those projects featuring STAMPlorations stamps (whether they're clear stamps or digis)! The more projects you link up, the better your odds are at snapping up a prize :o)

Lastly, most likely you've heard by now that the lovely and fabulous Darnell welcomed the new year with her super fun NBUS Challenge #3

We're thrilled that she is featuring STAMPlorations! She'll be picking 10 winners who'll each receive a $25 gift card from our shop! She is also giving winners the option to choose a gift card from a different domestic company. If you win a prize in Darnell's NBUS Challenge #3 and you opt for the STAMPlorations $25 gift card, you get to pick any 2 ARTplorations stencils free -- sweet bonus! :o)

So have you linked up your projects there yet? If you haven't, you still have time -- the challenge ends in just a little over 2 days!

How's your creative mojo now? Inspired? Ready to make something cool? Happy stamping!

PS: Get ready because next Monday is the start of our Stamp Release Spotlight Week! All week next week, the STAMPlorations girls will be treating you to a parade of inspiration projects featuring the January stamps! Not only that, we have a paper crafting superstar joining us as guest designer! We are over-the-moon she said yes! If you've been blogging and crafting for sometime now, you can't not know her ;o)
