Housewarming Party! challenge and prizes!

Share This!

HousewarmingPartyLogo3 To celebrate the launch of the new, we are throwing a big housewarming party for YOU with inspiration, a challenge and tons of prizes from incredible sponsors.

How does this Housewarming Party work?

After you peruse the amazing inspiration from the StampNation Dream Team (current, past and guests!) and some of our sponsors, we invite you to make a card (or project) based on the theme HOME and link it up below.

MY card for the HOME theme will go up tomorrow :)


PRESENTS:  How do you win the prizes?


  • For each project you enter in the linky (yes, you can enter more than once!), you will get three entries.
  • Leave a comment on this blog post for one entry.
  • Leave a comment on THIS YOUTUBE video and be a subscriber to my channel for one entry!


Be creative with HOME!  It can mean a house, family, love…you can even use the letters of the word HOME for inspiration (H-alloween, O-mbre, M-ixed Media, E-mboss).  Get creative and have fun!

If you do not have a blog, please upload your creation to the StampNation Gallery (or gallery of your choice), grab the link and add it below.

PARTY FAVORS:  Each Dream Team member (current, past and guests!) along with our company sponsors are also giving away one-month memberships  to StampNation on their blogs, so make sure you visit them and leave comments so you are entered to win.

Their entries are the first ones you'll see in the linky.  Be sure to click through to their blogs so you have a chance to win there, too!

Check out these incredible sponsors – each one listed here is near and dear to my heart.  I have had the pleasure over the past year of getting to know the people behind these ridiculously amazing companies.  I am thrilled at the generosity in offering up these prizes to help us celebrate.  WOW!  Thank you!

Over $300 worth of prizes listed below, amazing, right?  Be sure to check out the their websites,  some of them are giving away a free month's membership to StampNation!
