Stamplorations is sponsoring the third week of each month
Hey there! David and I (Shery) are a husband-and-wife team and we own and manage STAMPlorations™ from our home office in Central California. We have a 2-year-old daughter and another daughter coming this December. I’m an avid paper crafter and I love graphic design, so in June 2013, my husband and I launched our home-based stamp company featuring my designs.
I’ve amassed tons of stamps over the years and while I love each and every one of them, there were times when I wished I had a certain stamp that I didn’t have in my stash. That’s when I thought perhaps I could try making my own stamps.
Our stamps and designs tend to be artsy, sketchy — they primarily reflect the kind of stamps I love to work with — stamps I can combine to create a variety of designs. They are also sized primarily for A2 (and smaller) cards and ATCs and have a graphic/mixed media feel. (I’m a mixed media girl who has fallen in love with card-making.) We release new stamps almost every month. In June 2014, we started releasing one 5″ by 7″ stamp set every other month and offering this set to our premium stamp club subscribers.
We initially started selling STAMPlorations™ stamps in our Etsy shop. As we released more stamps under our own line, we decided it was time to branch out. And so in mid-October 2013, we opened up the STAMPlorations™ shop.
In October 2013, we launched the STAMPlorations™ challenge blog where we host challenges with prizes. In January 2015, we started offering ARTplorations, our own line of stencils. In July 2016, we started offering CUTplorations, our own line of thin metal dies. In October 2016, we introduced our first coloring book, Color Blooms. Our second coloring book was released in July 2017.
