A free stamping resource!

Call for New Artistic Guides!

The winds of change are already blowing on the trail here at Stamper's Quest!  We are so excited to bring you news of our upcoming plans for growth!  And we want to invite you to be a part of that growth.

Beginning next year, Stamper's Quest will begin monthly editions. Yes! You read that correctly!  We are expanding to a monthly E-zine to bring our faithful and valued readers more inspiration, techniques, and ideas. 

In order to provide for an expanded publication schedule, we need to add to our design team.  Our plans are to have 3 teams to rotate through the year. Each team will be featured quarterly, providing 3 inspirational projects or techniques of varying levels of difficulty just the same as our Artistic Guides do now.  In addition to the 3 projects/techniques per quarter, our Guides also take turns inspiring readers at The Watering Hole, our weekly blog.  We occasionally do an extra fun project between the designers to share with our readers, also.

If you think you would like to be a part of our design team, we would love to hear from you!  This is what we will need for you to submit for consideration:

  1. Three rubber stamped projects of varying levels of difficulty. Two must be cards. The third can be anything you would like to create as long as it incorporates rubber stamping.
  2. At least one project must include written directions with a list of supplies, including manufacturer names for reference. Directions should be clear, concise, and numbered.
  3. A short biography and photo of yourself. The bio should introduce your rubber stamping and paper crafting experience, along with a personal note or two so that readers can relate to you.

Please keep your photo attachments limited to 150kb in size. Send all information attached to one email!

If you have never participated on a design team before, this is your chance!  We are not necessarily looking for professional rubber stampers, but we are looking for motivated, and talented folks; and we are looking for those who enjoy learning, pushing themselves beyond the skills they have today, and folks who enjoy sharing their learning experiences and experiments. Meeting deadlines is of the utmost importance

You can submit your application and work to StampersQuest@yahoo.comAll applications are due NO LATER than October 15, 2008.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a shout!  We will answer all questions and concerns!

We hope to hear from many of you talented folks out there. We know you are there! Don't be shy and give it a try.

Happy Trails!

  1. Hi Kathleen -

    The initial 3 projects are part of your application for the design team. Designers for Stamper's Quest are responsible for three projects every quarter (4 times a year). Two projects must be cards, the third can be any type of project you wish to do, as long as it uses rubber stamping and the theme we have for that particular month. In addition to the design projects, other responsibilities are an occasional blog post and special projects we may have. The blog posts can be a technique, a card, a mixed media project, any type of project you would like to do as long as it uses rubber stamping as part of the creative process. All designers participate in posting to the Watering Hole (our blog) on a rotational basis - we all have a turn! The team posts are rotated among our guest designer features, rubber stamp company features, our product reviewer's features, and our editor's monthly post. By sharing the work, we all have less work to do and it's fun.

    Special projects will consist of perhaps a donated item for an auction. Money made from the auction will be donated to a charity. Or a small project to add to our prize box for blog candy and contests. We are also planning some fun collaborative works by all our designers to be profiled on Stamper's Quest. (I can't share our plans here or we would give away our surprises! lol)

    I hope that helped answer your question. If you still have questions, please let us know. And you can always send an email to stampersquest@yahoo.com.

    Happy Trails!

  2. Bea,
    What will be expected of the people chosen beyond the required initial 3 projects?
    Thanks,
