Haute Handbags Calls and Challenges

How do you carry it? That’s the question Somerset Studio would like to help answer through our new and exciting special publication titled Haute Handbags. Whether we use purses, clutches, totes, portfolios, sacks, bags, or attachés, there are many styles made with an astounding array of materials emerging from all corners of the creative world – all vying to be carried and used with style.

What’s In Your Bag?
We all know what we put in our bags: a wallet, a few pens, or maybe a journal or two. We’re asking you to share with us what you carry in your bag on a daily basis. Whether it’s your yarn and crochet hooks, a few pictures of your children, a sketchbook of your latest projects, or even your recent find at a thrift store, we want to see what treasures you hold in your bags. Follow these guidelines for taking and submitting a picture of your arrangement: place your bag and items on a neutral or white background; please don’t use flash photography; and provide a list of all the items shown in the picture along with a brief explanation of each.

Challenges

Celebration Challenge
Who needs an excuse to celebrate? Here at The Stampers’ Sampler, every new day presents a fresh opportunity to commemorate some of life’s most memorable moments. Our annual Celebrations Challenge is back, and we know our talented readers are bustling with new creative card ideas and stamping techniques to share. Birthdays, graduations, weddings, baby showers, and bridal showers – these are just a few of the special moments to spotlight on your celebration-themed cards. We’re always looking for clever twists on traditional festivities, but these days a number of lesser known, more offbeat holidays are gaining momentum, such as Pi Day, May the Fourth Be with You, and Sibling Day, so don’t limit yourself. You can even make up your own celebration! There is always someone or something to celebrate, and we are waiting to see what your imagination comes up with. Be sure to include rubber stamping on your cards and get them to us by the deadline.
Deadline: November 1st

Tempting Template
*** Date Correction: Hello stampers! Please note that the deadline for the Sunglasses Template was published incorrectly in the Jul/Aug/Sep 2016 issue of The Stampers’ Sampler. The correct deadline is November 1, 2016. Now you have even more time to show us your best shades! We apologize for this error.

We would like to invite you to join in the stamping fun and send in your own template ideas! Please include the proposed pattern for your template as well as a sample card using your template. If your template is selected, you will receive a complimentary issue of The Stampers’ Sampler and the joy of seeing how other talented stampers build upon your original concept. For a better idea of what we’re looking for, click here to view our past templates online.
Deadline: November 1st

A Different Point of View
A single stamp has endless options. Part of the joy of rubber stamping is the number of ways one stamp can be used. We are always looking for submissions for A Different Point of View. Take a stamp that catches your eye, and create several different cards using that image or a portion thereof. Really challenge yourself to view the image in new ways, and push the boundaries of a single stamp.
Deadline: November 1st

Themeless Artwork
As part of our shift to quarterly and the new and larger size of The Stampers’ Sampler, we would love to make our Feeling Themeless a recurring department! So, create to your heart’s content, free of any restraints, and remember to share the results with us.
Deadline: November 1st

A Call for Articles
We are always looking for new and innovative stamping articles. If you’re interested in submitting an idea for an upcoming issue of The Stampers’ Sampler, we would love to see it. Just send us 5 – 10 cards that demonstrate the same theme, a new stamping technique, a unique usage of an unexpected or interesting material, or an exciting project. Just make sure it has stamping on it!
Deadline: November 1st

Are you The Stampers’ Sampler’s Next Guest Artist? 
Since The Stampers’ Sampler was first introduced 20 years ago, this publication has featured many Guest Artists. This department is dedicated to artists (many who began as loyal readers) who capture The Stampers’ Sampler 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!
