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 June Inspiration Projects posts, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday, Sticker Monday, Digital Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, Christmas in the Air, and 3 CRAFTplorations posts with Craftyfield and Monika. Plus we had a $25 gift code and digital stamp giveaways 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. (Note: Several were passed over as winners/runners up/random picks because they were either missing the challenge graphic or didn't have a text link to the challenges they entered in their blog posts.)
  • 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. However, during our summer break (July to September), there is no limit to the number of entries that can be entered.

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), unless a specific announce-by date is indicated in a post. 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 (as of July 2020)*** 

  • We have transferred over to a new e-commerce platform and so all of our prizes are now in the form of gift codes (also referred to as discount codes and gift vouchers)Our new gift codes can be applied across all 3 stores: mainoutlet, and digital.
  • Gift codes may not be passed on, given to, or used by another person other than the one it was issued to. Every gift code issued as prize is tagged with the name of the winner.
  • If you win in our challenges (winner, runner-up, or random pick) and you have an existing gift certificate in our old store, you can choose to have a gift certificate issued so you can use your gift certificates on the old store before we permanently close it on October 1.
  • Gift codes can accumulate. If you win several times within a 3-month period and you do not use your first gift code prize, the values of your next gift codes can be added to your first gift code. All gift codes expire within 3 months, but if you choose to have your gift code values combined into one gift code, the first gift code's expiration date will apply.

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Monday, August 24. Prizes not claimed by August 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 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 July Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations July Winner - Summer"
"STAMPlorations July Winner - Sticker Monday"

It also helps if you include what prize you won (a $15/$10/$5 gift code, tangible product, etc.) in the body of your email.

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.)
