The Coloring Studio Calls and Challenges

~Artwork by Crystal Brashear

Stampington & Company is excited to announce that The Coloring Studio™ is now published quarterly. This new publication features sophisticated, edgy, black-and-white line drawings in the Somerset-esque style you’ve come to love, along with beautifully presented mixed-media artwork inspired by the line drawings. This magazine shares artistically inspired designs printed on high-quality paper — an array of sketches just awaiting your personal palette.

We’re looking for original, black-and-white drawings, free of any shading or gray scale, that include breathtaking landscapes, fun patterns, funky lettering, people, places, botanicals, and other beautiful images. In addition, we’re looking for finished projects that incorporate your drawing submission such as a journal page, a mixed-media collage, card, etc. We’re also considering article submissions that have to do with coloring or doodling techniques or other coloring-related topics.

Send hi-res (300 dpi at 8″ x 10″) submissions to thecoloringstudio@stampington.com for publication consideration. Include your full name, email, and mailing address with each submission.

Take Ten Calls and Challenges

~Artwork by Marge McGuire

Washi Tape Dreamland
In all of card-making, there is almost no other product that is as diverse and easily used as washi tape. For this challenge, we ask you to roll out your tapes and to put them to use. We welcome methods of using washi tape that are creative and unique, such as making tiny banners with washi tape or arranging it in a way that is just slightly different from how it’s normally seen. Remember to keep your cards relatively simple and easy to recreate in 10 minutes or less, and all cards must include stamping. Mail in your results by December 1, 2016 for possible inclusion in the Spring 2017 issue.
Absolute Deadline: October 1, 2016

Design Challenge
In each issue of Take Ten, we challenge you to explore the many possibilities of one layout. Tenia Nelson, of Denver, Colorado, created the latest card with a strip and rectangular shape. We invite you to play with the shapes any way you like, and would love to see your interpretation of this card. Look inside the latest issue of Take Ten to see the sample of this Design Challenge, and please send your own inspired cards by December 1, 2016 for possible inclusion in the Winter 2017 issue. All published contributors will receive a complimentary copy of Take Ten.
Absolute Deadline: October 1, 2016

Different Point of View
How many different looks can you achieve with one stamp? We are looking for cards made with the Different Point of View concept. Find you favorite versatile stamp and create several different cards using that image in new ways, and push the boundary of a single stamp. Remember to make your cards in the Take Ten style, and keep them quick and easy. For more inspiration, look at the samples in the magazine.
Deadlines: October 1, 2016

General Cards
We are looking for quick and easy stamped cards for this best-selling magazine. Send us your “ten minutes or less” artwork in any style, theme or color and we’ll send you a free issue if your artwork is published.

Simple Article Ideas
Have you made a simple project/collection of greeting cards with an intriguing or different technique? We are constantly tearing through card submissions hunting for the next feature article, and maybe it is your cards we are looking for!

We love bringing the best, easy stamping techniques to our readers!
Deadlines: October 1, 2016

Quick & Easy Gifts
Here at Take Ten, we are always on the lookout for quick and easy stamping techniques — but that’s not limited to cards! We’d love to see what you can create when you go beyond cards. Pick up your stamps, give yourself 10 minutes, and see what interesting stamped projects you can come up with. From tags and boxes to frames and gift bags, we want to see it all! Send us your best for a chance to be published in an upcoming issue of this quarterly publication.
Deadlines: October 1, 2016

Masterboard 
In each issue of Take Ten, we aim to include an example of a Masterboard, a self-made mixed-media patterned paper to use and re-use in your stamped projects. Pick up the latest installment of Take Ten to see an example of a Masterboard and how an artist has used her patterned papers to make a few cards featuring rubber stamping. Please send your samples of a Masterboard along with three to 10 samples of cards you have made with it. All cards should take 10 minutes or less to make each, and should include rubber stamping.
Deadlines: October 1, 2016

Are You the Next Take Ten Guest Artist? 
This department is dedicated to artists (many who began as loyal readers) who capture Take Ten style — original greeting card creations that incorporate rubber stamping into the design. If you are a dedicated stamper, this is your chance to show off what makes your talent unique, whether you have a signature inking technique, an anything-but-ordinary style, or a knack for layout designs. We would like to see new techniques, ones that are contemporary and one-of-a-kind, and vast themes. If you would like to audition to be a guest artist, we ask for the following: A minimum of 5 sets of 3 cards in each set (ideally, we would prefer 8 sets of cards in a similar theme), for a grand total of 15 – 24 cards. The best way to become familiar with what makes our Guest Artists stand out is to take a peek through our publication. For each set, keep in line with a similar color palette or theme. We’re dedicated to showcasing the very best artists, and we would love to feature your talented creations for all our readers to see!

    Would you be interested in seeing my hand painted wine bottles finished with the lights inside to be used for accent lighting or just a neat kind of light fixture either inside the home or on your screened in porch ? I don’t know if anyone as ever sent you pictures of this type of lighting or not, just wondering if you would be interested in featuring them ? Thank you for taking time to read my post.
