Whimsy Stamps Design Team Call - CLOSED

***This call is now CLOSED***

Whimsy Stamps is in search of a new design team member…

Are you a crafter looking to contribute to a design team by creating with rubber stamps? Do you love sharing your artwork with others? Are you a team player and willing work along side other designers sharing your creativity? Are you organized and able to meet deadlines? If you answered YES to these questions, Whimsy Stamps is looking for you!

We’re searching for a dependable, team-oriented person who loves to work and design with rubber stamps and paper! You need to have a well-maintained blog and be willing to share your Whimsy Stamps creations.

Whimsy Design Team Submission Details:
**Submission Time line: July 21st – July 31st. This call is open to anyone, from anywhere. Late entries will not be considered.
**Submission Guidelines:

Email,, with your full name, contact info including email address, blog address and attach 4 of your best creations. You can include cards, scrapbook pages, and/or altered items. If you have any Whimsy Stamps images, please use them, although this is not required.

Please include a brief description about you and your stamping style, previous Design Team work, published work, and any other artistic information you would like to share. Previous Design Team and publication of work is not required for consideration.

Once I receive your email complete with all personal and artistic information, including samples, I will send a confirmation of receipt. If you don’t hear from me, I didn’t receive your submission.

If you have been selected as our new Whimsy Stamps DT member, I will contact you via email. I will need you to confirm your commitment to our team and once that has been done, I will make an announcement on my blog and you will be able to do the same on your blog. If I do not hear from you within 48 hours of my offer email, accepting the position, I will have to choose someone else.

**Whimsy Design Team Member Requirements:
Your Design Team duties will last for a period of 6 months and will include at least one Whimsy related project per week. Please DO NOT try out if you are unable to make this commitment.

Because you will need to share your Whimsy creations, you are required to have a well-maintained blog for posting your artwork and any information concerning the Whimsy Stamps Company. Ability to photograph and post your creations is a must.

You will be required to participate in any company blog hops/scheduled events and whenever possible we would like our DT members to support all Whimsy sponsored events, such as challenges.
You can either join in the event by creating something or simply make a post on your blog alerting readers of the event. We encourage our Design Team members to combine challenge projects with DT work each week. This allows you to create one sample, which meets many criteria.

We have a yahoo group dedicated to the Design Team. As a team member, you would be granted access to this group. You are expected to join and participate in discussions with others as well as share suggestions or ideas. You will need to be an active member of the group/team.

As a Whimsy Stamps designer, you will receive a selection of stamps to work with during your 6 month period. When we have new releases during your design period, you will receive a selection of those stamps as well. You will need to use these stamps to create your weekly design work. Your art can be any type, including but not limited to cards, scrap book pages, and altered items.

The art you create for DT submissions is yours to keep; you do not need to mail it to me. However, you do need to be able to photograph your artwork and email me a copy and/or upload to the Yahoo group photo files for me to use in the online gallery.

As a DT member we would like to see you also posting your creations in online stamping community galleries, such as Splitcoast Stampers and/or Paper Craft Planet and SNR’s Card Universe. This will help to increase exposure to our stamps and images.

**Whimsy Design Team Benefits:

Your photo and a short bio including blog links will be placed on the Design Team page on our website for the duration of your design period. After you complete your design period with Whimsy, your name and blog link will be placed in our “Past Designers” section on the page and kept there permanently.

You will receive a badge to display on your blog showing that you are a designer for Whimsy Stamps.

All stamps received during your design period are yours to keep and use forever. DT members are also occasionally given free digital images during design periods, these are yours to use forever, but please do not share these files with others. You may print out images to share with friends, but do not share the actual file. This is against Angel Policy guidelines. All artwork you’ve created for Whimsy Stamps design work is yours to keep using as you wish.

As a DT member you will receive a 25% discount on website purchases, for as long as you are on the Whimsy Stamps design team.
