We are looking for submissions for our Ready, Set, Stamp feature on the following themes for the February and March issues of Craft Stamper. If you've always wanted to see YOUR card in print, now is your chance!!!

Cross My Heart – stamped, punched or die-cut, your design should include at least one heart! Using violet, lilac and primrose yellow.

Deadline for submissions = 27th October 2014

Quit Bugging Me! – creepy crawlies in all their glorious forms; worms, bees, ladybirds, ants, dragonflies etc. Try to avoid single butterfly images please (i.e. if you include a butterfly use another insect too). Using orange, bubblegum pink and bright blue.

Deadline for submissions = 24th November 2014

· Please email your submissions to cs@traplet.com

· We are looking for new and unpublished work ONLY please

· Please put 'Ready Set Stamp' followed by the theme 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 the closing date please try again next time


· Please make cards only for this gallery

· Cards 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 wait until the last minute to submit if your cards are ready

· Cards will be returned at our expense, along with a complimentary copy of the magazine in which your card features. Note this can take approx. three month

· All cards should be suitable for an intermediate crafter to complete in around 20 minutes including drying time. Please keep your cards simple and remember that you may be a quicker than average worker

· Please follow both the theme AND the colour scheme when creating your cards. The colour scheme is a guide only – you don’t have to be exact but try to be as close as possible. You can use the colours in any proportions to suit your design as long as all three are used. You can add black, white and metallics to any of the schemes
