Hello, STAMP friends! It's the 10th of the month, which means it's time to announce last month's winners! We also have winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and June Inspiration Projects posts + 6th Birthday Giveaway, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday and Digital Wednesday. Challenge winners (winners of the $15 gift certificates) were voted by the design team members, while all others were randomly chosen by

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. Also, please be mindful of the maximum challenge entries. A couple of our challenges have a limit on the number projects you can link up.

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.

An important note about our prizes: For our challenges, we offer prizes in the form of gift certificates for use in our main store. For our special posts, hops, and events, we offer prizes in the form of gift certificates, gift codes (also called coupon codes and gift vouchers), and products. There is a difference between a gift certificate and a gift code and it's all explained on THIS PAGEHOWEVER, if you are a winner, you may opt for a gift code to our digital store. Note, though, that if you choose this, the gift code cannot be combined with other codes (I use a different e-commerce platform for our digital store).

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Wednesday, July 24. Prizes not claimed by July 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

I have an email filter set up for claiming prizes so to avoid delay and to make sure I see your email in my BLOG PRIZE folder, follow this format in the subject line:

"STAMPlorations June Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations June Winner - CAS Challenge"
"STAMPlorations June Winner - Digital Wednesday"

It also helps if you include what prize you won (a $15 gift certificate, a $5 gift certificate, a $15 coupon code, $10 gift code, etc.) in the body of your email. Also specify if you prefer to use your prize on our main store or digital store. This way I know which code to generate, as codes generated for one store will NOT work on the other store.

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.)
