May Theme and Photo Prompt Challenge

Happy May fellow crafters! How are you holding up? I hope you and yours are all as well as can be given the circumstances and that you have a chance to enjoy spring in some way, although it might not be what you are used to. Are you in a situation now where you have more time to craft than usual? Or maybe less? Do you find your mojo has disappeared somewhere, or are you bursting with ideas? If it's the former - well, scroll down for some amazing inspiration from the STAMPlorations Theme and Photo Prompt design team, hopefully, that will give you a place to start your next crafty adventure. And if it's the latter, what are you waiting for, grab your stamps and inks and show us what you've got! 

Our May theme for the Theme and Photo Prompt challenge is Stamps and Tropical. You can use the theme, the photo prompt or both to inspire your project. Remember, you can link up a maximum of 6 projects (any kind!), no more. Your project should also involve stamping of some kind (rubber, clear or digi stamps are all permitted). We love to see you use your STAMPlorations supplies, but any crafting supplies are allowed. Don't forget to link to this post (find the link below) and make sure you add the challenge graphic to your post to qualify for prizes.

If you play, make sure you include the graphic in your post and link back to this challenge post in order to qualify for our prizes :o) Please also read our simple rules, which you'll find toward the end of this post.

The design team have yet again outdone themselves and hope you will draw inspiration from their work!





Inspired by the theme or photo? Please just keep in mind these simple rules:
  • Link up any type of project(s) based on the theme, the photo, or both.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. Non-STAMPlorations stamps are OK.
  • Link up to 6 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • You must display the challenge graphic in your post (if linking from your blog) and link back to the challenge post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).
  • Link up by May 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.

  • The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate.
  • The runner up will receive a $10 gift certificate
  • Three (3) randomly drawn crafters will each receive a $5 gift certificate.

All players, please read:
Before you add your project to the link-up, make sure that you are already linking up to this challenge and the challenge graphic is displayed on your blog post. Otherwise, your entry may be deleted and/or not qualify for the prizes. Also, please link up a maximum of 6 entries -- whether you are linking from your blog or your Instagram account. The maximum entry is 6 per player, so linking up 4 of your projects from your blog and 3 projects from your Instagram account will disqualify you from the voting and prizes.
