Challenge Guidelines - Updated for October 2019 to June 2020 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! 

We did some revamping and beginning October 2019, we are going to have 3 main challenges: Theme & Photo Prompt Challenge, CAS Cards Challenge, and Stencil Challenge. All 3 challenges will start on the first of each month at 1 am (Theme & Photo Prompt), 2 am (CAS Cards), and 3 am (Stencil) Pacific time. Then we have our Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge for those of you who love to create projects using STAMPlorations products.

So here's a refresher of our challenge guidelines. We've revised our prizes (more prizes, more winners). The use-by-date of gift certificates remain the same and we also ask 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. 

Beginning with the winners, runners up, and random draw winners of all October 2019 challenges, here are our updated challenge guidelines and prizes:

***A note to all players: If you have word verification turned on, our design team may not be able to leave a comment, so please consider turning it off.***

{Stencil Sunday} Ghosting and Alcohol Ink Lift Techniques with Harriet


Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! We have another helping of Stencil Sunday goodness! September's been a pretty quiet month here post-wise, but we can't let the month pass without sharing projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. And each month, we'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts for the month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

STAMPgirl Harriet used a couple of fun techniques to create 4 gorgeous cards.

{October 2019 to June 2020 Term} Re-Introducing the STAMPlorations Design Team!


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.

You'll see familiar faces -- but we've re-organized a little bit, as we have streamlined our challenges. And so I'd like to re-introduce the STAMPlorations design team. I am excited to have these lovely and talented ladies back, as they each have something to offer. They have impressed me with their work and I'm so looking forward to having them share their creative talents once again.
