July Challenge - Theme and Sketch

Hey there, STAMPlorations friends! It's a new month, which means a new theme and sketch challenge here on the blog! Thank you to those who played in last month's theme and sketch challenge. 

Now onto this month's challenge. We'd love for you to create and link up your projects based on this month's themesketch, or both -- you've got the whole month of June to play :o)

For July, our theme is STAMPS & STARS. Easy enough, right?

And here's our fun sketch to get inspired by as well:

We've got prizes for the winner and top picks as voted by the design team. See them here.


This month we have three awesome guest designers joining the STAMPlorations girls: Harriet Skelly of Ally Cat Cards, Swapna Patil of The Dream Pages, and Helen Gullett of Living My Given Life. All three of them created gorgeous cards andwe invite you to take a peek at their blogs.

Guest designer HELEN

Now here are the projects by the STAMPlorations girls. Hope you'll come visit their blogs to read about how they made their projects and for more inspiration!

Please keep in mind our simple guidelines:
  • Link up any type of project(s) based on the theme, the sketch, or both.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. Non-STAMPlorations stamps are OK (although please don't link up a project you've created for the sole purpose of promoting another company; those projects will be deleted.)
  • Link up to 6 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • Link directly to your blog post, not to your main blog. (This makes it easy for us to find and comment on your entry.)
  • If you have word verification turned on, our design team may not be able to leave a comment, so please consider turning it off.
  • Link back to this challenge post (not just our main blog) to encourage others to play too. Entries not linking back to our challenge will be deleted.
  • Link up by Sunday, June 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.
  • Have fun creating your project(s)!

~ The STAMPlorations™ girls
