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 April Inspiration Projects posts, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday, Sticker Monday, Throwback Thursday, Things with Wings, and 21 Days of Spring. Plus we had a $25 gift certificate giveaway on the store last month. Winners were randomly chosen by

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) via TEXT link 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 Sunday, May 24. Prizes not claimed by May 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

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 April Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations April Winner - CAS Cards Challenge"
"STAMPlorations April 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, 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.)
