CUTplorations October Challenge

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! Hope you had a delightful summer. Welcome back to our monthly CUTplorations Challenge where we invite you to use die-cuts and take inspiration from our photo. The first Monday of every month you'll find us here with a new photo to inspire you and some projects from the CUTplorations DT to spark your creativity.

So what is it that catches your eye in the above photograph? Vegetables? Text? Stitching? Fall colors? So many ideas, so little time, right?!? Wherever your imagination takes you, we have three prizes to be awarded to the winners chosen by the DT at the end of the month. We hope you'll play along.

Use our inspiration photo (and include it in your post) and any brand of die cuts. Just be sure to use at least one STAMPlorations product (stamp, stencil, die, coloring page) on your project. Don't have any STAMPlorations products yet? There is a free digi here, you can use. Cards, tags, scrapbook pages, mixed media projects ... all are welcome.

Let's see what the DT has done with the inspiration and the ever-expanding line of CUTplorations dies. (BTW, you might enjoy meeting the new DT members in this post.)




Can't wait to see your projects and to hear what inspired you! There will be three winning projects chosen by the DT. The winner receives a $10 GC to the store, the two top picks a $5 GC each. In addition, if there are at least 25 entries, one random winner will receive his/her choice of dies worth up to $15!

We are looking forward to seeing your projects featuring die cuts in the gallery below. Please check out the CUTplorations Challenge Rules here. The linky is open until the end of the day October 31.


  1. Your back!! Oh goodie. Fab inspiration. Hugz

  2. I am so happy to see CUTplorations Challenge back after a much needed Summer vacation:-) ALL the samples by your very talented DT are so creative and beautiful. TFS Hugs..

  3. Giving the Cutplorations challenge a try for the first time and always love our design team projects!!

  4. I submit my cards 2 times by linkyn tool but after some time it was gone automatically it is my fault doing something wrong or any other problems :(

    1. Hi, Shilpa.

      Per the CUTplorations challenge rules (which you'll find mentioned in the 3rd paragraph in the challenge post itself),a project must have at least one STAMPlorations product in it (clear stamp, digi stamp, die, stencil, or coloring page). We have other challenges you can enter that don't require STAMPlorations products. Thanks!


    2. Thank u so much for the information, I really don't know about that.


We love hearing from fellow crafters. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
