3rd GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls and Friends

This post will remain at the top of the blog until November 30.

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Today is a very special day at the STAMPlorations HQ, as 35 designers come together to express how grateful and thankful we are through the projects we are sharing today.

As I wrote in yesterday's post, 8 incredibly talented guest designers are joining us. They represent the challenge blogs that gave STAMPlorations an opportunity to reach many, many crafters through sponsorship for the past year or so.  These ladies, as well as 26 STAMPlorations girls, took time out of their busy day for this hop -- and I am SO very grateful to every one of them!

There are 2 parts to this event:

  1. a blog hop with 36 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers; and
  2. a wishlist linky party where you can link up your wishlist, as well as up to 3 projects you create that express how thankful and/or grateful you are. 
The hop and linky are open until the end of the month so you can take your time hopping and linking up :o)

For their projects, the participating designers used 11 new stamp sets designed particularly for this hop: three 4x6 sets (Thankful & Blessed, Wonderfall Time, and Words of Gratitude) and 8 Typografia: Thankful stamps (Full of Thanksgiving, Giving, Gratitude is the Blossom, Something to be Thankful for, Thankful People, Thy Goodness, Unknown Blessings, and We Have Enough).




And we have lots of prizes we'll be giving away to some lucky hop and wishlist linky party participants.

Prizes for those who hop:

Prizes for those who link up to the STAMPlorations Wishlist Linky Party:
  • TWO (2) randomly drawn winners will each receive products in their wishlist (up to $40 MSRP)

The BIG Extra Prize:
  • Hop participants who comment on all 36 stops in the hop will be entered in a drawing and one winner will win a $50 gift certificate to the store.

Winners will be announced on December 10 in the November Challenges and Blog Hops winners post. So that you don't miss that post, please follow our blog or sign up for email updates.

Let's get on with the hop, shall we? (If a participating designer's Giving Thanks hop post appears to be missing, it may be that she has not posted hers yet. We will be updating the links as the posts go live.)


And now for the Giving Thanks Wishlist Linky Party.
  • Create your wishlist in the STAMPlorations store and enter your wishlist link to the linky below. Instructions for creating your wishlist can be found here.)
  • To increase your chances of winning, you may link up a maximum of 3 separate projects (card, tag, journal page, layout, ATC, etc.) with a THANKFUL/GRATITUDE theme.
  • You may link up a project you have posted already on your blog, as long as it was posted this month (November).
  • In order to qualify for the prizes, you must link back to this post OR this post (either link back is acceptable) AND display our event graphic (it's the graphic found at the very top) AND share your wishlist link in your blog post(s).
  • Use any product(s) you have; STAMPlorations products are not required.
  • Link up by Thursday, November 30, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-8). 

And lastly, stamps, stencils, and dies are 40% off* until November 30. Use code BIGTHANKS on checkout. All orders of up to $39 ship worldwide for a flat rate of $5; orders of $40 or more get free worldwide shipping.

(*Excludes products in the New Release and Retiring sections; code for 40% off can be used only once per customer/shipping address and cannot be combined with other coupon codes due to the magnitude of the sale.)

Thank you so much for celebrating our 3rd Annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist Linky Party with us! To all our friends in the US, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving. To all our friends who live outside the US, we hope you have a wonderful time this coming holiday season. May we all live a life of gratitude :o)

With thanks and much love,

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Intuitive Art Journal Page by Susanne

Hi there!

I have a spread in my homemade Traveler's Journal to share today! I love to just play in this journal. I try out new techniqes, ideas or products. It's also very relaxing to just let the creative process flow.

November CAS Card Challenge Reminder

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Here's to remind you that this month's CAS Card Challenge is in full swing and there are still a couple of weeks left to join in with the fun. It's anything CAS goes with brown as the optional color twist.

If you were inspired by our sketch and/or theme this month, make sure you link up your creation to our November Monthly Theme and/or Sketch Challenge as well. If your card has diecuts, has a STAMPlorations product, and was inspired by the photo here, link it up in the November CUTplorations Challenge gallery. If your CAS card happens to have a gratitude/thankful theme and features a tag, make sure you link it up to our newest challenge, TAGplorations, as well! And lastly, if your card has STAMPlorations products (stamps, stencils, and/or dies) as the main attraction, link it up to our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge. Yep, more chances for prizes we have up for grabs :o)

The STAMPlorations girls are back with cards to inspire you. Check them out and we hope you'll come play!

Heads Up on the 3rd Annual GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party!

Hey, everyone! Here's your heads up on tomorrow's  3rd Annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop & Linky Party! It starts at 7 a.m. Pacific. Yesterday, we kicked off the event with the Wishlist Linky Party.

Our previous Giving Thanks blog hops were fun and successful and this time around, it's even bigger, more fun, and has tons of prizes! Joining the STAMPlorations girls are 8 amazing and talented guest designers representing challenge blogs we have been so fortunate to be part of as a sponsor for the year or so. I'm so very grateful that they agreed to participate in this event and carve out time from their busy schedules to create beautiful projects. The challenges and events they represent are ones I wholeheartedly recommend to crafters and I invite you to visit their personal blogs as well. Take a look out our guest designers:

There are 26 STAMPlorations girls joining me and our guest designers in this hop. Did I mention this is one huge hop? ;o)

With a blog hop as big as this one, you can expect lots of prizes too! We're giving away over $250 worth of gift certificates and products.

Prizes for those who hop:

  • THREE (3) winners randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers blog will each receive a $25 certificate to the STAMPlorations store

  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from our Facebook page will win a grab bag consisting of new products (valued at $25 MSRP) + another grab bag of the same value for one friend he/she tags in her comment

Prizes for those who link up to the STAMPlorations Wishlist Linky Party:

  • TWO (2) randomly drawn winners will each receive products in their wishlist (up to $40 MSRP)

Extra Prize:
  • Hop participants who comment on all 36 stops in the hop will be entered in a drawing and one winner will win a $50 gift certificate to the store.

And lastly, we can't have a big event like this without a big sale on the store. Stamps, stencils, and dies will be 40% off* from November 15 to 30. And all orders of up to $39 ship for a flat rate of $5 worldwide; orders of $40 or more automatically get free worldwide shipping. This will be the biggest sale event we'll have for 2017.

So we hope to see you here on the blog tomorrow morning! Until then, happy crafting!

(*Excludes products in the New Release and Retiring sections; code for 40% off can be used only once per customer/shipping address and cannot be combined with other coupon codes due to the magnitude of the sale.)

{Inspiration Project Post #152}

Hello STAMPlorations friends! It's Inspiration time, and this week the Inspiration girls are showcasing stamps designed by Becca under her label Big Grins By Becca Cruger. Rudolph from Reindeer Games has certainly come out to play, so have the cookies, balloons and candle.

We are doing things a little differently over the next couple of weeks, because we're doing the Giving Thanks hop this week, our stamps, stencils, and dies are 40% off with the BIGTHANKS coupon starting tomorrow, November 15.

This coupon can only be used once per customer/shipping address and does not apply to products in the New Release and Retiring categories; coloring books; and gift certificates.

Should you wish to purchase stamps from the New Release category, you can use either your own discount code, as is the case with our Stamp Club members (25% off) or if you're a returning customer (15% off), or use the DT's personal discount codes (20% off), which you can find on their personal blogs.

Of course, we'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration Posts, so have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.

Hello everyone and Happy November! Lynne here today and for my monthly mixed media tutorial I thought I would share with you a few photos of my very favorite Art journal which I created from an old, cloth-covered book I found at my local second-hand store. And then I will show you a very simple technique to create your own striking art journal page using only one stencil, one stamp and some ink, paints and pens. Here is that page:
