{Stencil Sunday} Monica Creates Simple Stenciled Christmas Cards


Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! It's time for some stencil inspiration. 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 Monica took one of our Christmas stencils to create a couple of quick holiday cards.



December Challenges Inspiration - Have You Played Yet?

Hello, crafters! Welcome to your mid-December challenge reminder and additional inspiration post. Thank you to all of you who have already supported our challenges and shared your creativity with us this month. If you haven't had a chance to play along yet, there is no time like the present to do so.  As always, our design team have created new gorgeous projects to inspire you to play along with our challenges. You still have a few more weeks to join in on the fun.

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 they didn't follow the rules.

{Spotlight Project} Maria Recycles Old Christmas Cards As Gift Tags


Hello there STAMP friends! It's Christmas TIME. And I don't know about you, but TIME is the one thing I seem to be short on this month. Actually, it happens to me every year...

So how about a super simple idea that's environmentally friendly plus it delivers the goods that you need when it comes time to wrap presents?

Here are my gift tags ready to add to presents.

{Inspiration Project Post #245}

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! Welcome to Tuesday's Inspiration Post. The team is back showcasing stamps, digital stamps, dies, stencils and stickers of their choice in today's artsy and festive makes.

We'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration posts, have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate.

 

 

 


{NOVEMBER WINNERS}


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 November Inspiration Projects posts, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday, Sticker Monday, Christmas in the Air, Throwback Thursday, 25 Days of Christmas Tags Extra, Christmas CUTplorations Redux Hop, and our 5th Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Giveaway. 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, you must 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. 
  • Be mindful of the maximum challenge entries -- the Theme & Photo Prompt Challenge has a limit of 6 entries per player; the CAS Cards Challenge has a limit 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, as I use a different e-commerce platform for our digital store. (Products in our outlet store are already heavily discounted so no gift codes will be issued for use on that store.)

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Tuesday, December 24. Prizes not claimed by December 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.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLAIMING PRIZE
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 November Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations November Winner - CAS Cards Challenge"
"STAMPlorations November Winner - Throwback Thursday"

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.)

{Special Post} STAMPlorations at AAA Cards Challenge

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! I'm popping by to share a few cards for the current challenge over at AAA Cards Challenge, where STAMPlorations is the sponsor! The winner will receive a $15 gift code to apply on products in the store. And because it's an extra long challenge, there's an extra prize too -- another $15 gift code to a randomly drawn player.

For the next 4 weeks, the challenge is to create a CAS card with the "along the edge" theme. There's an optional twist too: time travel.


feat. Fluttery Garden A2 Card Fronts, Thank You Coffee, Art Marks, and Mixed Media Grunge





Many thanks to Jane and the AAA Card Challenge design team for having me and STAMPlorations for this challenge! Please head on over to the challenge blog to play along :o)





PS: I have a couple more cards created but I wasn't able to get them photographed on time. I'll add them as soon as possible :o)
