MOM Subway Art Builders Pre-Release SALE - 30% OFF


Sorry, the pre-release sale has ended.
However, you can purchase the MOM stamps individually

Starting March, we're releasing clear stamps in the SUBWAY ART BUILDERS Series and we're kicking it off with the MOM Subway Art Builders sets.

The MOM clear stamps have 29 individual words/phrases: four sets have 6 sentiments/subway art phrases each, while 1 set has 5 "mom" words in different fonts. Each set is one full stamp that's approximately 2" by 3". The sentiments are 1.75" wide. Words/Phrases vary in height -- from 1/4" to 1/2" tall. They're big enough for ATCs and A2 cards (and even bigger cards).

Use the stamps as is but I highly recommend cutting the sentiments individually for even more mix-and-matchability with the other (current and upcoming) stamps in the Subway Art Builders series. You can even use them together with word stamps from other companies. Talk about flexibility! You'll get a LOT of mileage from these stamps -- and hey, the MOM stamps aren't just great for Mother's Day cards...they're great for virtually any project you make; creativity and imagination are the only limits!

Between now and March 13 (or until our pre-release sale inventory runs out), you can order the MOM Subway Art Builders sets at 30% off. When these stamps are officially released on March 14, they'll retail for $7 each ($35 for all 5 sets). For our pre-release sale, it's only $24.50 for all 5 sets (shipping is free anywhere in the US; $4 shipping to Canada; $5.50 shipping to all other countries). This is a one-time early bird discount for crafters and stampers.

These stamps are already in stock! So when you order today, they'll be shipped within 1-3 business days. Every order comes with a surprise freebie -- a sampler of a non-stamp product that will be available in the shop soon :o)

[Please note: Paypal is our payment processor. You do not need to have a Paypal account to purchase these stamps. You will be able to pay with a credit card if you don't have a Paypal account. If you do have a Paypal account, you'll be able to pick a payment source: your Paypal balance, eCheck, or credit card. eCheck payments will need to clear first before items are shipped.]



Buy MOM Subway Art Builders stamps - 5 sets

Sorry, the pre-release sale has ended.
However, you can purchase the MOM stamps individually
HERE.



In the next couple of weeks, the STAMPlorations design team will be showing off projects featuring these sets. For starters, here's a few simple one-layer cards I created with these stamps.

 
 


Happy stamping!

Our February inspiration project is courtesy of Shirley. Her card is tropical-inspired, as shown by the colors she used to stamp the stitches, banner, sentiment, flowers, and leaves -- stamps from the VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals and PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Pentagons sets. (If you ask me, this instantly made me think of -- and crave for -- mangoes!) When you have a moment, please stop by Shirley's blog and leave her some comment love!

February Challenge: STAMPS & STITCHES

Welcome to the February challenge! We’d love it if you’ll join us for the entire month of February! Each month we have a theme, and for February, we’d love to see any and all kinds of paper crafts using STAMPS & STITCHESYou can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges, although if you have our stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them!

Put your own spin on this month's theme -- as long as you use stamps in your projects (as opposed to projects without stamping whatsoever) and you include stitches (e.g., stitch stamps, real stitches, faux stitches) or anything stitch-related (e.g., sewing machine, dress forms, spools, designer paper and/or die-cuts with stitches, etc.), we'd love to see them!

Meet Our New Design Team Member: Maria

This month, Maria officially joins us in the STAMPlorations design team!


"Guten Tag, I'm Maria and I'm an American gal living in Germany - came for a job, stayed for a guy! I have two teenagers, two rabbits and recently added a dog to the family. I've always loved to make things and thought I'd attempt scrapbooking a few years ago. But I got detoured by cardmaking - the smaller canvas is less intimidating - and even started blogging about two years ago. I love challenges and submitting for publications."

Please give Maria a warm welcome and check out her blog! We're very excited to have her on the team and she joins us tomorrow when we start Sketch Challenge #5!

Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #4 Winner and Top Picks

We received amazing entries for Sketch Challenge #4 and we want to thank each of you. It's Kylie's turn to pick the winner and top picks for this round.


STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #4 Winner



Karen's CAS take on the sketch plus the gold ink she used had us swooning over her card. Congratulations, Karen! Please grab your winner badge below to display on your blog! We'll be in touch with you in a few days with information on claiming your prize. We are also looking forward to having you as a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge!
