{Special Stamp Release!} LOTUS LOVE by Dee's Artsy Impressions + Mini Release Hop -- Comment to Win!

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Beginning this month, we're doing special stamp releases and celebrating those releases with mini blog hops. In these mini hops, we're putting the spotlight on one stamp set with 3 to 5 STAMPlorations girls sharing their projects. We'd love for you to visit the designers' blogs and leave comments along the way. The best part? One of you will win the stamp set we're featuring :o)

Dee's Artsy Impressions

To kick things off, we're starting with a brand new set by Deepti, LOTUS LOVE. I can't tell you enough about how fun this set is! Deepti designed her set so that you can create your own lotus pond scenes. Just take a look at the samples we made using her fabulous set -- lots of possibilities!




How the mini release hop works:
  • Comment on this post.
  • Visit the designers' blogs and comment on their featured project(s).
  • Commenting closes on Friday, August 7, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-7).
  • We'll randomly select a winner of the stamp set from comments left on all the blogs and announce it on Sunday, August 9.

Want to increase your chances of winning?
  • Share the link to this blog post on your Facebook status. Make sure to tag your post with #lotuslove and #stamplorations
  • When you visit the designers' blog posts, pin their cards to your Pinterest board. Again, make sure to tag your pins with #lotuslove and #stamplorations
  • Leave a second comment on this blog post telling us that you've done the above (include a link to your FB profile/page and/or Pinterest board).

By the way, Lotus Love is now available in the shop and for one week only, it's 10% off!

And another by the way...if you haven't visited the shop lately, you're missing out on one awesome change we did starting this month: lower minimum orders for free shipping to our non-US customers! Now orders of at least $25 (previously $35) get free shipping to Canada and orders of at least $35 (previously $50) get free shipping to all other countries. Free shipping coupon codes are found on the shop's checkout page.

Happy hopping!
