{Design Team Call} Calling Creative Paper Crafters!


Heads up, fellow crafters! Want to be part of the STAMPlorations design team? We're expanding and would love to have creative paper crafters join our fun and talented family! We've got a design team call! Click on the graphic above for the details :o)

{Spotlight Project} Deepti Adds Color Using Stamps!

For the ART IS special stamp release + Comment to Win hop, click here.



Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I thought of using mixed media stamps as a way to color another stamp. This technique works best when one stamp is texturized in look rather than solid and another stamp is an outline stamp :) You will understand better when you see the project...

So, here's a look into the finished card.

{Special Stamp Release!} ART IS by Shery Russ Designs + Mini Release Hop -- Comment to Win!

Hello, everyone! We are back with another special stamp release! This time we're releasing ART IS, a collection of art-related quotes with a grunge and graphic style. The set is perfect for those artsy projects -- cards, tags, mini canvases, ATCs, pocket letters, journal pages, and more.




For this mini hop, we have the STAMPlorations girls sharing their creative projects. We'd love for you to visit the designers' blogs and leave comments along the way. The best part? One lucky commenter will win the Art Is stamp set! :o)







  



How the mini release hop works:
  • Comment on this post.
  • Visit the designers' blogs and comment on their featured project(s).
  • Commenting closes on Friday, October 30, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-7).
  • We'll randomly select one winner of the stamp set from comments left on all the blogs and announce on Sunday, November 1.

Want to increase your chances of winning?
  • Share the link to this blog post on your Facebook status. Make sure to tag your post with #artis and #stamplorations
  • When you visit the designers' blog posts, pin their cards to your Pinterest board. Again, make sure to tag your pins with #artis and #stamplorations
  • Leave a second comment on this blog post telling us that you've done the above (include a link to your FB profile/page and/or Pinterest board).

And you guessed it...Art Is is now available in the shop and for one week only (until November 4), it's 10% off!

Back in August, we made one awesome change in the shop: lower minimum orders for free shipping to our non-US customers! Now orders of at least $25 (previously $35) get free shipping to Canada and orders of at least $35 (previously $50) get free shipping to all other countries. Free shipping coupon codes are found here.

Happy hopping!
