January Challenges Extra Projects -- Have You Played Yet?

Hello, STAMP friends! The holidays are over and we're all settling back to our normal routine (we hope!). It's time to make some time for crafting! It wasn't too long ago that we were all trying to get those Christmas cards made and mailed...and now we're already halfway through January! Have you played in our challenges yet? You have two weeks more to play and link up your projects. We've got some fun themes, sketch, color, and inspiration photo. Try and see which one will stir your creative mojo.

Some of the STAMPgirls are sharing extra projects to give you a little nudge :o)

If you're new to our blog, please take a moment to become familiar with the challenge guidelines -- we would hate for anyone to be voted by the team as a winner or be randomly chosen as a top pick and then not qualify for the prize because she didn't follow the rules.

The hop will start on our Instagram account at 2 am Pacific and then BeccaHelen, and Tenia will be posting on their Instagram accounts throughout Sunday. If you don't see their Bloomdala Bliss projects when you visit their IG accounts, check back again a bit later. This is an Instagram only hop and we'll randomly draw one lucky crafter from all comments/likes/tags across the four IG accounts to win the Bloomdala Bliss dies.

{DECEMBER WINNERS}


Hello, STAMP friends! It's time to announce last month's winners! We also have winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and December Inspiration Projects post, as well as winners of our special posts -- Wonderful Wednesday Coloring #11 and #12, STAMPlorations at Time Out post, and the Designers of 2018 Giveaway post :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: When playing in our challenges, please display the challenge graphic AND link back directly to the challenge post (NOT to the main blog or the challenge section) in your blog post in order to qualify for the prizes.

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 Thursday, January 24. Prizes not claimed by January 24 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, gift certificates, and coupon codes 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 December Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations December Winner - Mixed Media Challenge"

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, 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.)

{Special Post} It's A Girl Thing Special Release Hop with the STAMPlorations Girls + Comment to Win

This post also doubles as a mini hop: if you comment here and on the participating designers' blogs, you could be one of three (3) lucky crafters to each win a $15 coupon code to the STAMPlorations store. Commenting is open until the end of the month, and winners will be announced on February 10 in the January winners post.

{Spotlight Project} Shirley Goes Graphic with Positive Vibes




Hi peeps, for my spotlight post today I took my inspiration from graphic design principles to create a few cards. I pinned loads of images that I liked, then decided what it was that I liked about them. White space, blocks of strong colour overlaid onto line images, contrasting text, balance.
