Thank you for getting your stencils out for our November challenge, we challenge you to out-do the November gallery ;) We can't wait to see your artwork again 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 January 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).

{December CAS Challenge}

Hi CAS crafters! How are you all? Are you busy with Holiday crafting? We are happy that you are here to join us for the STAMPlorations December CAS challenge. Hopefully, you find inspiration to play along, whether you want to share your holiday crafts or other CAS cards! 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). If you play along, check back on December 10th when we announce the winners.

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 metallic and one other color. 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.

{December Theme and Photo Prompt Challenge}

Hello crafters! Thank you for joining us for the STAMPlorations December Theme and Photo Prompt Challenge. This month we have a perfect theme for you if you are working on some holiday-related projects! Hopefully, you feel inspired and join us for the challenge. Do check out our updated challenge rules and prize info here. As always, we have prizes for grabs if you play along - one of the DT members will pick their favourite project to win a $20 prize code ($25 if you used STAMPlorations products as the main/focal point in your entry) to the STAMPlorations store and two randomly drawn crafters will win a $10 prize code ($15 if you used STAMPlorations products as the main/focal point in your entry). The winners will be announced on January 10th, so don't forget to check in on that date if you play along.

Our December theme is Stamps and Candles. As usual, we also have a photo prompt you can draw inspiration from. 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 (if linking from a blog). 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!
