{January CAS Challenge}

Hi CAS crafters! Happy and crafty New Year! Welcome to the first STAMPlorations  CAS challenge of 2022. Thank you for sharing your projects with us in 2021 and we hope you will have an inspired start to 2022 and continue to support our challenge(s) with your art. Do check out our updated challenge rules and prize info here.

And if the fun of playing along isn't enough, we also have great prizes each month. One of the DT members will pick their favourite to win a $20 prize code to the STAMPlorations store ($25 prize code if you used a STAMPlorations product as the main/focal point of your card). Two randomly drawn crafters receive a $10 prize code ($15 prize code if you used a STAMPlorations product as the main/focal point of your card).

We have a few simple rules and we ask that you follow them so that playing along will be fun and fair to everyone. All the rules are summarised at the end of this post. Your challenge is to create a clean and simple (CAS) card with or without the optional color twist which this month is rainbow. You may enter up to 3 CAS cards. Remember to link to this blog post (via text link) and display the challenge graphic to be eligible for the prizes (if you are linking from a blog post). You can use any craft products you want, but if you have STAMPlorations stash, we would love to see what you create with it. And of course the most important rule - have fun and be creative! 

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.

Let's see how the Design Team was inspired by this month's colors.



Inspired to create your own CAS cards? Link up below! Please just keep in mind these simple rules:
  • Link up a maximum of 3 cards regardless of the platform you use for linking up your projects (blog, Flickr, IG, Splitcoast, etc.)
  • Projects must be NEW, not something you created or posted on your blog/IG prior to this challenge starting.
  • Entries must be CARDS -- either anything goes or based on the color twist, as long as they are clean and simple.
  • 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).
  • Link up by January 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.

  • The winner will receive a $20 prize code ($25 if a STAMPlorations product was used as the main/focal point of the card).
  • Two (2) randomly drawn crafters will each receive a $10 prize code ($15 if a STAMPlorations product was used as the main/focal point of the card).

January 2022 CAS Cards 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, 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.
