A Somerset Holiday Calls and Challenges

Handcrafted Projects for Christmas & the Holiday Season 
Christmastime is where most crafters truly shine — it is the time to create beautiful handmade gifts, lovely wrapping and cards, and artful decorative pieces. In this upcoming issue of A Somerset Holiday, we are aiming to create an inspirational, instructional companion for the holiday crafter with an abundance of simple projects, covering everything from artwork and gifts, to creating the packaging and tags labeling each memorable gift item. We invite you to join in the celebrations and submit your very favorite holiday-themed artwork, gifts, and more. Projects that might spring to mind are Christmas cards, gift wrapping paper, wreaths, advent calendars, and quick and easy gift ideas (i.e. face scrubs, gift baskets, imaginative gift card holders, stocking stuffers, candles, food/beverage ideas, and so on). Start a lasting tradition by giving gifts straight from the heart and made with your own hands. Please submit your most festive DIY projects to be considered for this stunning, full-color 144-page publication.
Deadline: May 15th

A Little Bit Handmade 
The holidays are a very busy time, so it is not always easy to have the time to make something by hand. In this department, we aim to take a purchased item and personalize it in some way. For instance, taking a thrifted coffee mug and turning it into a hot cocoa kit, making a scarf in 20 minutes or less from a yard or two of fabric, or altering a Moleskine journal for the recipient with their monogram in a faux-calligraphy style. These are creative, inexpensive, simple projects that ideally take 30 minutes or less to make.
Deadline: May 15th

Challenges

Holiday Happenings
It’s hard to believe we’re putting out a call for holiday artwork already, but we are and luckily we will have enough time to get back into the holiday spirit! For this challenge we feature 25 or more pages of holiday-inspired tags, gifts, collages, and cards — all showcasing rubber stamping, of course. Take inspiration from your favorite carols, reuse some memorable holiday wrapping paper, or take liberties with new techniques or vintage holiday ephemera. Please send in your most original, exciting, and festive work by May 1, 2017 for the possibility of being published in our October 2017 Issue.
Deadline: May 1, 2017

Tempting Template
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: May 1, 2017

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: May 1, 2017

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: May 1, 2017

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.
