July Summer Challenge

Hey, artsy stamper! Looking for the July challenges? We're taking a summer break to re-charge and the STAMPlorations girls will be back in October. Thank you to everyone who played last month. We'll announce the winners on July 10. We are also making some changes to the prizes we offer here on the blog beginning this month and we'll share those in a separate post.

We don't want to completely stop our challenges for those of you who love playing and sharing projects you create. So for the next 3 months, you can keep playing and linking up your projects. There will be a challenge post like this in August and again in September.

  • Link up a maximum of SIX (6) projects (any type, any theme; 1 project per blog post).
  • Use supplies you have on hand -- STAMPlorations products are not required, although if you do use our product(s) and you are randomly picked as winner, you get an extra prize.
  • Bloggers, you must display our graphic above in your blog post and have a text link back to this post to qualify for our prizes.
  • Each month, we'll randomly draw FIVE (5) players to each receive a $12 prize code to the store. If you used a STAMPlorations product in your winning entry, you get a bonus -- your choice of product (up to $7 value) in the store in addition to the $12 prize code :o)

The STAMPgirls may be on summer break but we still have some fabulous inspiration:


CAS CARDS: Anything Goes

STENCIL: Anything Goes

Submit your projects for the July Summer 2021 Challenge
Heads up! If you used at least one STAMPlorations product (digi or clear stamp, stencil, die, clear stickers, chipboard/mdf/wood shapes, paper goods, 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 :o)

  1. I would like to do the challenges, but don't know how to do the linking up, and hate to ask my husband to help (he's happy to, but I hate to put MORE onto him!). I wish that the process were really simple.

    1. Google is your friend! You can start a blog - it's how most crafters play in challenges. Google "how to start a blog for free" and you'll gets lots of results. It is fairly easy if you are willing to put in the time and effort to learn and follow instructions. You can also go the Instagram route - and again, there are LOTS of info/tutorial/videos on how to set an account and get started.

      Anything and everything you want to learn these days, you'll be able to find tutorials - you just have to dedicate time to learn. A few minutes each day to learn something new will do wonders. (Twenty-something years ago, I trained a bunch of 50- and 60-year-olds how to hard code their first web sites over a period of 2 days. By the end of the workshop, they were coding like pros and were able to create HTML pages to add to their organization's intranet, taking a load off their administrator who used to be the one to convert their reports to HTML pages. There wasn't a lot of info/tutorials online back then as it is today so I had to develop a training course specific to their needs and then train them.)

    2. Sharon you should be able to add a link from any public gallery, so fb, insta, pintrest etc etc etc. Just make sure the photo is public.

  2. Your inspiration will. be missed, but enjoy your break!!!

  3. You all deserve a summer break to recharge and relax. I know you, Shery, will still be working, but hope you can sneak away for some family time and rest as well. Happy summer!!

  4. Thanks for continuing the challenge through your summer break. Time to dust off my Stamplorations stamps and get inky for the summer. Have a great summer vacation!

  5. Fun fun fun. Lovely inspiration from the team. Hugz

  6. Thanks for the challenge and gorgeous inspiration, and do enjoy your break!


Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
