{Preview} 14 New Sanna Lippert Designs Stencils + 2-Part ARTplorations Stencil Hop!


Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Mixed media artist and STAMPgirl Sanna Lippert has FOURTEEN new fabulous stencils designed exclusively for STAMPlorations/ARTplorations! 

Seven of these stencils are flower-themed (and great to use as focal points) and the other seven are basic backgrounds (great for creating patterns and backgrounds on projects).


These awesome stencils are already available in the store so you can check them out already. But if you want a close-up of these stencils, make sure you watch Sanna's video below -- she unpacks each stencil and shares ideas on how they can be used in various projects. It's a pretty short video -- 7 1/2 minutes.


Challenge Guidelines - Updated for October 2018 to June 2019 Term

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Just one more sleep and it will be October...which means the STAMPgirls' summer break is over and we'll be back to regular programming! Our challenges resume, beginning with the CUTplorations Challenge on Monday, October 1. 

So here's a refresher of our challenge guidelines. We've revised our prizes (more prizes, more winners), as well as the use-by-date of gift certificates. We are also asking players to link back AND display the challenge graphic (on their blogs; non-blog players are not required to display the challenge graphic) if they want to qualify for the prizes. And we've made one change to the Mixed Media Challenge: mixed media CARDS can now be linked as well! 


{Special Post} STAMPlorations at AAA Cards Challenge + A Giveaway

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! I'm popping by to share a few cards for the current challenge over at AAA Cards Challenge, where STAMPlorations is the sponsor! For the next couple of weeks, the challenge is to create a CAS card that's inspired by a TV show.




Let's see if you can guess the TV shows that inspired two of my cards. Guess one correctly for a chance to win one of the stamp sets I used. I'll randomly pick a winner from all the comments left with the correct answer(s). Comment by October 9 and find out if you're the lucky winner on October 10 in the September Winners post.

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! After a much-needed summer break, the STAMPlorations girls are rarin' to get back to business here on the blog! Our challenges resume in October.

{HEADS UP!} Two Christmas Blog Hops with the STAMPlorations Girls - September 24 to 28

   

Happy Friday, STAMPlorations friends! We have two special events for you all to look forward to next week:

Christmas Redux Hop
September 24

Christmas Special Release Hop
September 25 to 28


On Monday, 7 STAMPlorations girls will be sharing Christmas projects they made using our previously released Christmas CUTplorations thin metal dies + stamps. 

Then from Tuesday until Friday, the girls in the Inspiration team will be sharing projects featuring Shirley's 3 newest layered stamp sets, as well as one of two cover plates and two of 6 phrase dies I designed.

And you know the drill around here -- when you hop and leave comments here on the blog and on the designers' blogs, you get a shot at the prizes. For these two hops, our prizes are: winner's choice of two (2) Christmas word/phrase dies, a $15 gift certificate, and a $25 gift certificate.

And for two weeks (from September 24 to October 8), the thin metal dies in the Christmas Dies section will be 10% off -- no coupon needed (discount applied on checkout), and when you use a STAMPlorations girl discount code, you can get an extra 20% off. So if you've got some Christmas thin metal dies in your wishlist, you'll be able to snag them for up to 30% off starting Monday.

So we'll see you back here on Monday, okay? Until then, have a great weekend!



PS: Keep your eyes peeled for a surprise post from me in the next two weeks. (Well, it isn't really a surprise now that I've warned you about it - haha!) At the last minute (as in 2 weeks ago), I managed to finish designing 4 extra Christmas stamp sets. I received samples of the sets yesterday and they will be in the store by mid-October. As I have a few spares, I've decided that I'll do a special post where I'll give away a set or two before the stamps are even available in the store :o)

{Introducing} Our Newest CAS Cards Design Team Member: Nancy Littrell

Hello again! Yesterday you met our newest batch of talented guest designers. Today, meet the newest addition to the STAMPlorations design team: the fabulous and talented Nancy Littrell of scandinancy creates!

I've been itching to invite Nancy to become a regular member of our design team because she makes some of the most incredible artsy CAS cards on blogland. I'm a huge fan of her work and what's more...she uses STAMPlorations products whenever she can. I so wanted her on the CAS Cards Challenge team because I'm pretty sure she'll be a wonderful addition to our already pretty awesome team. When finally a spot became available, I wasted no time reaching out to her and asking if she would be interested. Imagine how happy and excited I was when she said yes :o)
