4th GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls

This post will remain at the top of the blog until November 30.


Monday, November 12 -- Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Today is a super special day here at the STAMPlorations HQ, as the STAMPlorations girls come together to express how grateful and thankful we are through the projects we are sharing today. I'm so grateful to each of them because they took time out of their busy day to create something very special for this hop!

There are 2 parts to this event:
  1. a blog hop with 14 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers; and
  2. a wishlist linky party where you can link up your wishlist, as well as up to 3 projects you create that express how thankful and/or grateful you are. 
The hop and linky are open until the end of the month so you can take your time hopping and linking up :o)

{Spotlight Project} Add Color But Differently with Deepti!


Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to a spotlight feature. Today again, I am playing with the newest stamp club set Bloom Doodles and for this one I decided to add color to my design a bit differently for a modern and trendy look. Looking at these beautiful images, the obvious choice is to color them but I decided to challenge myself and get creative. I was looking into some distress mini ink cubes to decide for my color scheme, when this idea hit me :) Let me show you...

Happy Wednesday, STAMPlorations friends! We're back with the nonth installment of Wonderful Wednesday Coloring, a special feature we started while the regular STAMPgirls were on a summer break.

{OCTOBER WINNERS}


Hey, guys! We've got last month's winners to announce. We also have the winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and October Inspiration Projects, as well as winners of our special posts -- ARTplorations Stencil Hop, Wonderful Wednesday Coloring #7and #8, Christmas Baubles Release Hop, Extra Holiday Stamps special post, Gratitude-Themed Stamps and Dies special post, and CUTplorations Christmas Release Hop :o) Challenge winners were voted by the design team members, while all other winners were randomly chosen by Random.org.

An important reminder to challenge players: Please make sure that you display the challenge graphic AND link back to the challenge post (NOT the main blog or the challenge section) in your blog post in order to qualify for the prizes. If a player gets the most votes from the team but doesn't have the graphic and link back in her blog post, the next player with the most number of votes is declared the winner.

An important note about our winners post: winners (challenges, blog hops, and special posts) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one). All winners must claim their prizes by the deadline. If you are a regular player in our challenges or participant in our blog hops and special events, please consider following our blog, even signing up to receive email notifications when new posts are published. You'll find those links on the right side bar. 

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Saturday, November 24. Prizes not claimed by then will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away $100 to $200 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift certificates each month, it would take a lot of time to contact the winners individually. I also want to be fair to those who regularly visit our blog and claim their prizes within the time frame given.

When claiming your prize, send an email to stamplorations@gmail.com. Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations October Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations October Winner - Theme & Sketch Challenge"

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, do include your complete mailing address in the email you send, even if I already have mailed to you before. (It saves me time having to look up your address.)

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Mixed Media Greeting Card by Susanne



Hi everyone. I have a mixed media greeting card to share today with a Distress Oxide background.



After creating the background I used the Dots'n Beans stencil and sprayed water through it. This reactivates the ink and adds a nice watermark kind of style pattern to the paper. Watch my video for all the details and to see how I've arranged the Trendy Spring Blooms.



Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.
