{Mixed Media Tutorial} Spread Your Wings and Fly Away by Tanja

Hi there, it's Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this Mixed Media Canvas. If you are interested in the products I used or other STAMPlorations, ARTplorations or CUTplorations products, I have a special treat for you: use the discount code STAMPGIRLTANJA and get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies.

{Special Post} STAMPlorations and the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + 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 spring/summer-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, June 1. 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 that STAMPgirls Vicki and Kathy created using a couple of our newly released coffee-themed stamps:

VICKI used the Hello Coffee stamp set to create this lovely card:


KATHY used three newly released products -- Zen Coffee Background 2, Coffee Fix phrase die, and Zen Coffee 1 cover plate die -- and our popular Coffee word die.

Guess what? I'll 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 Zen Coffee 1 cover plate die, and one will receive the Hello Coffee stamp set. Simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Monday, June 4. Easy peasy! Winners will be announced in our May Challenges and Blog Hops winners post on June 10 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 Spring/Summer 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} Maria Makes an Easy Shaker

Hi STAMPlorations peeps! Maybe you saw the fun shaker card I created recently? Thought I'd share how I made it. I think the design is just plain fun, and with these stamps you could even use this design for an out-of-the-ordinary graduation card. And the bonus... you use up one of those backgrounds you made for fun but then don't know what to do with it ;)
