5th GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Giveaway with the STAMPlorations Girls

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 them because they took time out of their busy day to create something very special for this event!

There are 2 parts to this event:
  1. a blog hop with 7 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers; and
  2. a giveaway where you can complete one, a few, or all of the tasks for a shot at a couple of really huge prizes.
The hop and giveaway are open until December 8 so you can take your time hopping and accumulating points :o)

So let's talk about prizes...we've got a few.

Hop prizes:
  • THREE (3) winners randomly drawn from all comments left on this post and designers' blogs will each receive a $15 gift code.

Giveaway prizes:
  • ONE (1) winner of 1 year supply of STAMPlorations products (12 products with a maximum combined MSRP value of $180)
  • ONE (1) winner of 6 months supply of STAMPlorations products (6 products with a maximum combined MSRP value of $90) 

Extra prizes:
  • A few surprise winners will be randomly drawn from all Rafflecopter giveaway entries, social media engagements (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, blogs), and blog comments to receive either gift codes or products.

Winners will be announced on December 10 in the November winners post. So that you don't miss that post, please follow our blog or sign up for email updates.

Now let's get started with the hop, shall we?


Giving Thanks Giveaway

{Sticker Monday} Terri Uses Clear Stickers in 3 Different Projects

Happy Monday, STAMPlorations friends! We're back with Sticker Monday, one of the new features we introduced last month. Every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, the STAMPgirls will be sharing projects showcasing our line of fun clear stickers. And every month, we'll draw one lucky crafter to win a $15 gift code -- randomly drawn from all comments left on the Sticker Monday posts for the month, as well as from the featured designer's blog.

This month, STAMPgirl Terri is back with 3 different projects -- a layout, a gift box, and a card -- wherein she used our clear stickers creatively.

{Stencil Sunday} Helen Creates Fun Gelli Printed Backgrounds with Stencils

Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! We are back with a new helping of Stencil Sunday goodness! You'll get to see 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 Helen used our stencils to create a few fun backgrounds for her projects.



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 October Inspiration Projects posts, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday, Sticker Monday, Things with Wings, Throwback Thursday, Fall|Winter Coffee Lovers Hop, and our Belated 6th Birthday Blog Hop, Celebration, and Wishlist Linky Party. The winners and runners up in our 3 challenges are picked by design team members while all other winners are 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. Also, please be mindful of the maximum challenge entries -- Theme & Photo Prompt Challenge has a maximum of 6 entries per player; the CAS Cards Challenge has a maximum of 3 entries per player; the Stencil Challenge has no entry limit.

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 PAGE (please take the time to read that page). Gift certificates and gift codes may not be passed on, given to, or used by another person other than the one it was issued to. 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 Sunday, November 24. Prizes not claimed by November 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

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 October Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations October Winner - Theme and Photo Prompt Challenge"
"STAMPlorations October Winner - Sticker Monday"

It also helps if you include what prize you won (a $15/10/5 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.)

{Spotlight Project} Monika Makes Glitter Shaker Cards

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! When I first saw the Gratitude Trees Layering Dies and Basic A2 Panels Nesting Dies, I felt they were perfect for making shaker cards. The original idea was to make the second one down, the one with the single tree, but once started the project just expanded.

Have a look at my finished projects.
