{DAY ONE} CUTplorations Christmas Release Blog Hop & Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Are you ready for another fun hop and linky party with the STAMPlorations girls? Well, welcome to our first CUTplorations blog hop! We've released some fantastic holiday-themed stamp sets and dies and we're showcasing them today, tomorrow, and Friday. 

I'm excited to show off the projects the STAMPlorations girls in the Inspiration team created. If you're a regular follower of our blog, then Tuesday might be one of your favorite days here on the blog because of our Inspiration Posts where the girls share their super creative cards. And you're in for a treat for the next three days.

Okay, let's cut to the chase. This event is super simple. You can do one or two, or both for more chances at winning:

1. Comment here and on the designers blogs between now and Tuesday, September 20. We'll randomly draw three (3) commenters who'll each receive a $10 gift certificate to the shop.

2. Create a project where you use diecuts or dies (any brand!) and link it up to our CUTplorations Flash Diecut Linky Party by Tuesday, September 20. We'll randomly draw two (2) winners: one wins 3 holiday-themed word/phrase dies and the other one wins a stamp set & coordinating dies -- either the Christmas Reindeer or Warm Hands, Warm Hearts.

To start off our hop, we're putting the spotlight on CHRISTMAS REINDEER, a 4x6 stamp set designed by Shirley Bampton! It comes with coordinating dies for those cute reindeer :o) Have a look!

And here are two cards the stamp designer herself made. Just click on Shirley's name to visit her blog and read about how she put her cards together.

And take a look at what Monika, Cornelia, and Maria made!

Done hopping and commenting? Ready to have even more fun in our CUTplorations flash diecut linky party?
  • Create a new project featuring diecuts or where you use dies (any brand!). Any theme.
