January Theme and Photo Prompt Challenge

Happy New Year crafters! We are happy to welcome you to the first STAMPlorations Theme and Photo Prompt challenge for 2021. We are so happy to bring in the new year with you and wish you all it will be an improvement on 2020. We also hope you will find this a very creative year and we can't wait to see your beautiful projects in our gallery again this year. If you joined us for the December challenge, don't forget to check in on the 10th to see if you are the winners of the $20 prize code to the STAMPlorations store or one of three randomly drawn crafters to win a $7 prize code. But now, let's move on to this month's challenge. 

Our January theme for the challenge is Stamps and Sweets. This is going to be such a fun one! You can use the theme, the photo prompt or both to inspire your project. To be eligible for the prizes we ask that you follow a few very simple rules to make it fair and fun for everyone. You can link up a maximum of 3 projects (any kind!), no more, even if using different platforms. Your project is required to 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. Also, your project should be displayed in its full glory on your blog/Instagram/other platform, sneak peeks are not eligible for our challenges. Last but not least, 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. All the challenge rules are summarised at the end of the post. And the most important rule is of course to have fun, get messy, inky and creative!

If you play, make sure you include the graphic in your post and link back (via text link) 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.

Now let's see how the design team have interpreted this month's theme and/or photo.

   

     



*****

Inspired by the theme or photo? Please just keep in mind these simple rules:
  • Link up a maximum of 3 entries regardless of the platform you use for linking up your projects (blog, Flickr, IG, Splitcoast, etc.)
  • Entries should either be based on the theme, photo prompt, or both.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. Non-STAMPlorations stamps are OK. (But please don't use our challenges to enter projects you make for promotional purposes.)
  • No sneak peek projects! Full project photo must be displayed on the player's blog post in order to qualify for the prizes.
  • To qualify for the prizes, players must display challenge graphic and have a text link back to the challenge post (blogs only).
  • Link up by January 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.


Prizes:
  • The winner will receive a $20 prize code.
  • Three (3) randomly drawn crafters will each receive a $7 prize code.



January 2021 Theme & Photo Prompt Challenge 


Heads up! If you used at least one STAMPlorations product (digi or clear stamp, stencil, die, clear stickers, sequins, or a page from any of our coloring books), make sure to link it up to our Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge too for a chance to win more STAMPlorations products! We draw two winners every month. You may also want to check out our other challenges. You can find links to all our challenges at the top of the page for more inspiration and more opportunities to win prizes.

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 3 entries -- whether you are linking from your blog or your Instagram account. The maximum number of entries is 3 per player, so linking up 2 of your projects from your blog and 2 projects from your Instagram account will disqualify you from the voting/random drawing and prizes.
