{November Stencil Challenge}

 Hello crafters! Welcome to the November STAMPlorations stencil challenge. Thank you for getting your stencils out for our October challenge, we loved your artwork and can't wait to see what you will create this month. Do check out our updated challenge rules and prize info here. If you play along with our challenge, don't forget to check in on the 10th of December to see if you are the winner of the $20 prize code to the STAMPlorations store ($25 if you used a STAMPlorations/ARTploration stencil) or one of two randomly drawn crafters to win a $10 prize code ($15 if you used a STAMPlorations/ARTploration stencil).

We love to see your beautiful projects but to keep it fair and fun for everyone we have a few simple rules which you can also find at the end of this post. In addition to using a stencil on your project, we ask that you link up no more than three (3) projects per challenge. As always, our stencil challenge is anything goes as long as you use a stencil somewhere in your project. Also, remember that your project should be shown in its full glory on your blog post or Instagram, sneak peeks are not eligible to take part. Please don't forget to link back to this blog post via text link, and to include the challenge graphic to be eligible for the prizes (if linking from a blog). And above all, we hope that you have a lot of fun when you get creative with your stencils! 

If you play, make sure you include the graphic below 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.

  • You must use a stencil or stencils (any brand) in your project(s) - if it isn't obvious that you used a stencil in your project, your entry may be deleted or will not be eligible to win.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products in entries 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 the challenge graphic and have a text link back to the challenge post (blogs only).

All players, please read:
Before you add your project to the link-up, please 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 you will not qualify for the prizes. Also, please link up a maximum of 3 entries only -- whether you are linking from your blog or your Instagram account. The maximum entry is 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 and prizes.
