{DAY 4} ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop EXTRA + Link up to the Flash Stencil Project Linky Party!

Quick blog hop links:

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Did you enjoy the last 3 three days of the hop? Aren't stamps and stencils an awesome combo? The hop isn't really over yet, as you've got lots of time to hop and leave comments along the way to snag one of the prizes we've got. Comment by Friday, May 29, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).

  • SIX (6) winners (2 per day - May 25, 26, and 27) will be randomly drawn from comments left on the designers' blogs to each win their choice of 1 ARTplorations stencil.
  • THREE (3) winners (1 per day - May 25, 26, and 27) will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog to each win a $10 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations shop.
We've also got a few more projects to share and hopefully they'll inspire you some more to take out your stencils:o)

And we mentioned extra prizes for those who participate in the Flash Stencil Project Linky Party so now it's your turn! We want to see projects where you used stencils!

  • Link up projects where you used stencils (any brand). It can be any type of project, even non-card ones. 
  • No need to make a new project for this flash linky party -- although if you're inspired to create, be our guest! You may link past projects -- so long as you made them within the last 2 months (from April 1, 2015 to the present).
  • To give everyone a fair shot at the prizes (winners will be randomly drawn), please link up a maximum of 3 projects.
  • Link up your projects to the linky below by Sunday, May 31, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).

We'll randomly draw THREE (3) winners:
  • TWO (2) winners whose projects feature stencils (any brand) will each receive their choice of one (1) ARTplorations stencil
  • ONE (1) winner whose project features an ARTplorations stencil will receive her choice of two (2) ARTplorations stencils OR a $15 gift certificate to the shop.
So will we see you in the linky party? We hope so! We'd love to see your take on the stencils and be inspired by YOU this time around!
