{NOVEMBER WINNERS}


We've got winners and top picks of all of last month's challenges, as well as winners of our 3rd Annual Giving Blog Hop & Linky Party and ARTplorations Stencil Hop Featuring Sanna Lippert Designs Stencils. Thank you to all of you who played in our challenges last month!


An important note about our winners post: winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one). All winners must claim their prizes by the deadline. If you are a regular player in our challenges or participant in our blog hops and special events, please consider following our blog, even signing up to receive email notifications when new posts are published. You'll find those links on the right side bar. 

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Sunday, December 31. Prizes not claimed by then will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away over $200 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift certificates each month, it would take a lot of time to contact the winners individually. I also want to be fair to those who regularly visit our blog and claim their prizes within the time frame given.

When claiming your prize, send an email to sheryruss@gmail.com. Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations November (Winner, Top Pick, Random Draw) - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations November Winner - Theme & Sketch Challenge"

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, do include your complete mailing address in the email you send, even if I already have mailed to you before. (It saves me time having to look up your address.)

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Monochromatic Stenciled Tag by Sanna





Hello there lovelies, Sanna here again. It is again time to share another mixed media tutorial with you guys today. This time I created a monochromatic stenciled and stamped tag with a start-to-finish video.

 Here is the tag I created:

 



STAMPlorations and the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + New Coffee Stamps + Comment to Win


Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! There's a fun blog hop starting today for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea or chocolate)! The hop is hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali Narla.


Amy and Chaitali have invited lots of sponsors for the hop, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a winter-themed project featuring coffee, tea and/or cocoa images. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. The linky is open until Friday, December 15. Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn! (Psst! Keep scrolling for a free digi stamp you can use in your projects!)


And here are projects created using a few of our new coffee-themed stamps:




(This card is part of our mini release hop here.)



BLOG CANDY ALERT!

Guess what? We will randomly pick THREE (3) coffee- (or tea- or chocolate-) loving crafters to win a few more prizes: one will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store, one will receive the COFFEEOLOGY 2 stamp set, and one will receive two TYPOGRAFIA Coffee stamps (Good Mood and Smell the Coffee). Simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Monday, December 18. Easy peasy! Winners will be announced in our December Challenges and Blog Hops winners post in January so make sure to follow our blog so you don't miss that post.

And here's that free digi stamp you can use to create coffee projects to link up to the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop for even more chances at the sponsor prizes. It's the digi stamp we currently offer on our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge page. If you use the image, be sure to link up your project there too because we draw two winners of gift certificates or stamp sets every month.

{Spotlight Project} Die Cutting Goodness with Deepti!


Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I am back with some fun with the coordinating dies of a few stamp club sets. My idea was to focus on die cutting only.

Sometimes, working just with die cuts is pure delight and then you get to use all those papers that you have been hoarding LOL. Let me show you what I made. Here's the card:
