Deadline for submission: 23rd June 2015

· Please email your submissions to
· Please put 'Ready Set Stamp' followed by the theme in the subject line

· Please make cards only for this gallery.
 . 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 look forward to seeing all of your beautiful designs!

  2. Dear Craft Stamper,
    I have just mailed some photos to you. I am wondering if I'm allowed to blog about the cards?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hello,
      We would ask that you wait and see if the cards have been accepted for publication before blogging them? If a card is to be published, we prefer that it is a magazine exclusive and has not been published before. We will let you know within a week of an email being sent if we would like to publish your project. Thank you! xxxx
