By July 23, 2016Stamp-a-faire


PLEASE NOTE: This post will remain at the top for your convenience and easy schedule reference.  Please be sure to scroll down for all new posts added throughout the Stamp-a-faire festivities.  Because of potential sluggish loading speeds, only one video post will show on the front page.  You can use the arrows at the bottom of the page to toggle over to the next page, or you can utilize the link menu below that will be updated throughout the day.

The fifth annual online Stamp-a-faire event, brought to you by Papertrey Ink, is taking place today!  Below you will find the complete scheduling details and some helpful links as well.


Myself along with the Design Team, will be interacting with you all day in the Stamp-a-faire Forum, which can be found HERE.  There will be threads started for each challenge and we will be checking out your projects through the InLinkz lists as well!  So be sure to stop by and chat for a bit and take the opportunity to ask your favorite designers questions and just get to know them better!  This forum will also give you the opportunity to chat with other stampers worldwide who are participating in this event!

How the challenges work…

All of the challenges provided throughout Stamp-a-faire day will function much like our weekly Make It Monday Challenges.  Each Stamp-a-faire Challenge will have a coordinating InLinkz list for you to share your projects using your favorite photo-hosting site (Flickr, Photobucket, etc), gallery or your blog.  

Each list will be open until 7am ET Tuesday, July 26th, so you will have ample time to particpate and photograph your projects. Two winners will be randomly selected from each InLinkz list to each win a $25 gift certificate and announced on Tuesday as well!

Here is the full schedule:

  • 7am- Master Color Recipes
  • 8am- Starry Night with Amy Sheffer
  • 10am- Gilded in Gold with Danielle Flanders
  • 12pm- Floral Impressionism with Melissa Phillips
  • 2pm- Masterpiece Inspirations with the Team
  • 4pm- Mastering Drips & Spatters with Lizzie Jones
  • 6pm- Pointillism Play with Heather Nichols
  • 8pm- Watercolor Like a Master with Kay Miller
  • 10pm- Color Blocking with Lexi Daly
  • 11pm- Team Farewell

We provided a printable schedule and supply list a few weeks ago.  You can access it HERE.

July 26th, 7am ET- Challenge Projects Due:

At 7am ET on Tuesday, all of the InLinkz SAF Challenge Lists will be closed and we will no longer be accepting submissions that are eligible for prizes.  All of the winners from all the SAF challenges will be posted on our Stamp-a-faire Winners Page by 9pm ET Tuesday night.

Thank You to the Team

The entire Design Team has been working diligently behind the scenes for months to bring together all of the tutorials and videos you will be enjoying during tomorrow's event.  I wanted to take a moment to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication in seeing these preparations through.  There is already a pretty extensive workload required for our team members with the release schedule each month, so it was an incredible accomplishment to complete all of these extra tasks that coincided with that.  Thank you to the entire team!

As a reminder to ALL of our customers, Saturday, July 23rd also marks the day you can earn the Stamp-a-faire exclusive stamp set, Art with Heart ($15 value).  This stamp set will be available for free on Stamp-a-faire day (July 23, 2015) to all customers who make a qualifying purchase of $100 (after rewards points/discounts are applied, before shipping is added) or more between 7am ET and 11:30pm ET, limit one per customer.  Also note that project samples created with Art with Heart can be seen HERE in this post. 

We are looking forward to bringing all of you this amazing FREE stamping event!  We hope you will join us!


Don't forget, you can share your photos from today on social media!
