We’ve got lots going on this week to keep your Summer Vacation hopping with inspiration. We’re hopping all week with one of our very favorite craft partners, May Arts Ribbon. They’re an extremely generous sponsor for us here at Stampendous and our Design Team is absolutely in love with their gorgeous ribbons, cords, strings and specialty items. You’ll find loads of beautiful May Arts on most of our samples.
Now you’ve got a chance to check out our Design Team Inspiration as well as the Ribbonistas over at the May Arts Blog. Be sure to comment and tell us where you’re from, because our Australian Distributor, The Stencil Specialists, is sponsoring a prize for one friend “down under” to win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil and a surprise goodie from their terrific stock of Stampendous merchandise!
There are Stampendous prize packages up for grabs. THREE U.S. commenters will receive a prize of their choice of any one roll of ribbon from May Arts and a $20 reward card. Tell us what state you live in when you comment. Here are the Stampendous Official Rules. Also, be sure to stop by the May Arts blog because they are giving away a prize, too! How’s that for an amazing week of prizes!
