Reader Submissions wanted!

Craft Stamper Magazine has a feature dedicated to YOUR art... so we need to find some fabulous projects to fill it!
We know you lot are very talented, so we think you should share your talents with our readers... 
A few tips to getting your art published:
  • We are a mixed media magazine, with an emphasis on excellent stamping skills . If this sounds like your work, you are on the right lines!
  • We want to convey a bright, vibrant, happy feeling in the magazine. Projects that are dark, grungy or mostly brown  are not our thing!
  • We welcome all kinds of art : Art panels, Journal pages, 3D assemblage, Sculpture, Fabric art, Canvases, Layouts, Tags, Upcycling, Home Decor etc. For this feature however, we will NOT be accepting cards.
So, fancy getting you and your art noticed by the UK's best mixed media magazine?
Why not give it a go, you've nothing to lose!

· Please email your submissions to
· Please put 'Reader Submission' in the subject line
· Please note that due to the number of submissions it's not possible to contact every entrant individually - if you have not heard from us within one week of emailing your submission, you have been unsuccessful with that project. Please try again with another project! 
. There is no deadline involved with this call out, this is an ongoing feature so requires projects for each and every issue.

· Readers Submissions can be anything at all apart from a card. This feature is NOT for cards.
 . Please do not use stamps that are discontinued for this article. Also please only use stamps that are available to buy in the UK (the exception is stamps from advertisers e.g. Art Journey, De Stempelwinkel).
 . We do not accept projects created with digital stamps ONLY for this feature. Digital stamps are welcome, but must be used in conjunction with 'real' stamping to qualify.
· Projects which are selected need to be posted to the Craft Stamper offices in the UK.
· This call IS open internationally.
· Note that we do choose artwork as it arrives, so please don't hesitate to submit if your projects are ready.
· Projects will be returned at our expense, along with a complimentary copy of the magazine in which your project features. Note this can take approx. three months or longer, depending upon the issue in which your project is published.

  2. Hi Trish
    Is this ongoing or is there a cut off point?
    Cheers Helen x

    1. Ongoing Helen! We always want to see fabulous art created by our readers! xx

  3. Stamps available to buy in the Uk... does this include companies who ship to UK?

  4. Hello Tera,
    We would prefer that the stamps be available from the UK. If unavoidable however, we will accept submissions using stamps from a company with international shipping to the UK.

  5. The colours that have been chosen, are they Blue, White, Green and Red ?? as the red looks more like fushia on my pc, thank you x

    1. Hello Doreen,
      The colours for the December Ready Set Stamp theme 'North Pole' are baby blue, white, lime green and fuchsia. Hope that helps! xxxx
