Announcing Third Coast Rubber Stamps New Challenge Blog!

Hello Everyone!

I'm delighted to let you all know about Third Coast Rubber Stamps new Challenge Blog and I'm super excited because I'm also the Challenge and Contest Coordinator and boy do I have lots of fun planned for you guys ;0)

Grab Our Badge
 July 1st is our grand launch and we're celebrating in style with a month long Launch Contest perfect for Christmas in July.  So come and "Deck our Blog with Boughs of Holly" and join the celebrations!  There will be surprise prizes going on through out the month so you don't want to miss a thing ;0)

I'm sure many of you already have a nice stash of Third Coast Rubber Stamps but if you're unfamiliar with this amazing company then here's a little bit of info for you before you dash off to peruse their extensive catalog of unmounted stamps ;0)

Third Coast is a small, one-woman owned art rubber stamp company started in 1995.  Now carrying more than 6500 stamp images, we work with several artists to bring you you new unique and inspiring images.  We have something for every taste!   
Our stamps are manufactured to order, from deeply-etched red rubber.  We sell our stamps un-mounted only!  That means you are just buying the rubber die, with no cushion or wood attached.  This accommodates the various ways that our customers like to mount their stamps and helps keep prices lower while we help to preserve our planet's forests.  All of our stamps are vulcanized from top-quality red rubber and we offer an unconditional satisfaction guarantee.  Third Coast is an Angel Company.  We also have a Customer Referral Program!  Please visit our About Us page for more information!

How to Play in our Challenges!

Once the "Deck our Blog with Boughs of Holly" Contest ends our Challenge schedule will begin and a new Challenge will be announced every two weeks.  We will occasionally have Contests too and you will find a preview of upcoming themes in the right hand sidebar to give you a little bit of advance notice and more crafty time :0)

You will notice that there is a tab bar of pages along the top of the blog where you will find all the relevant information for our challenges, click on each tab to open the page.

If you have your own blog then you will be able to enter our Challenges and Contests via the inlinkz button which will be located near the bottom of each Challenge or Contest post.

If you don't have a blog then don't worry because you can play too simply by leaving a comment on the post for the Challenge or Contest you wish to enter and provide a direct link to your project photo on Third Coast's Facebook Page, on your own personal Facebook page or any online art galleries or photo sharing sites!  If at any time you're not sure of something then please email me!

 We have a few simple rules to help keep things organized and fair for all of our players so please read over them.
