{Digital Wednesday} Four Tags, Four Techniques -- Creative Coffee Cup Tags by Maria

Happy Wednesday! Digital Wednesday is back and every 3rd Wednesday in January, February, and March, STAMPgirl Maria will be sharing her creations spotlighting our digital images either by themselves or together with other STAMPlorations products. We'll draw one lucky crafter to win a $15 gift code -- randomly drawn from all comments left on the Digital Wednesday post for the month, as well as from the featured designer's blog.

STAMPgirl Maria created four coffee cup tags using four different techniques.



January Challenges Inspiration - Have You Played Yet?

Hello, crafters! Has your 2020 been crafty so far? Have you played along with our January challenges? If not, now is a great time to do so! The ladies from the design team are back with more inspiration. As always we are so grateful for your support of our challenges and can't wait to see your creations.

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.

{Stencil Sunday} Cards by Sue Using 1 Stencil, 2 Techniques

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 Sue used a couple of techniques to create her CAS cards using one stencil.


Friday, January 10, 2020


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 December Inspiration Projects posts, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday, Sticker Monday, Digital Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, Things with Wings, and 12 Days of Christmas. 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 Friday, 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 gift/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 December Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations December Winner - Stencil Challenge"
"STAMPlorations December Winner - 12 Days of Christmas"

It also helps if you include what prize you won (a $15/10/5 gift certificate, a $15 coupon code, $10 gift code, tangible product, 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} Maria Uses Up Scraps

Hello there STAMP friends! Time for my first Spotlight post of 2020 and today it's about using your paper scraps - even if it barely makes a dent ;) You know all those cards you're seeing in the cardmaking world with strips of cardstock? That's what I did. Rainbow, cuz who doesn't love a rainbow? And I especially love 'em when they're paired with black and white.

I was going to have a twofer for you, but it turned into a threefer. Read on to see what happened.

This is one of the three.
