CIC400-Monday Spotlight--STAMPlorations


This week we are celebrating our 400th Challenge!




Today's sponsor spotlight is: 

Founded in June 2013, California-based STAMPlorations is owned and managed by husband-and-wife team, David & Shery Russ. From just a handful of stamps, they now have over 100 stamp designs, four stamp designers, an exclusive line of stencils, and 26 amazing crafters spread across four teams who constantly produce gorgeous projects featuring their products. Their clear stamps are perfect for creating CAS, one layer, and mixed media cards, and they can be combined to create a variety of paper crafts as well.  Their clear stamps are made from the finest, non-yellowing photopolymer resin. All of their stamps are proudly made in the USA. Through their stamp line, they hope to encourage crafters of all ages and experience to levels to "Stamp with all your ART!"

STAMPlorations is generously providing a $20 gift certificate to their store.

This year we invite participants to combine a birthday theme project with a past Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Past challenges can be found on the CIC Pinterest Board as well as on our Cupcake Inspirations Blog.
