STAMPlorations and the Summer 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 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 30. Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn! (Psst! Keep scrolling for a free digi stamp you can use in your projects!)

Link up your summer-themed coffee, tea, and/or cocoa card(s) here


Now here are are a few coffee projects we made.

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 win a $10 gift certificate to the store, one will win What's Brewing 4x6 stamp set, and one will win her choice of (1) Caffeinated Zen or (1) Zen Coffee ATC 3x5 stamp. Simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Monday, July 3. Easy peasy! Winners will be announced in our June Challenges and Blog Hops winners post on July 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 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 whenever we reach entries in multiples of 50 (we're at 1,671 entries and counting).
