Whimsy DT Call

This post will remain on top until Sunday, March 1st. Please scroll down for newer posts

***This call is now CLOSED! Thank you to all who entered, we will post our decision later today, stay tuned!***

Good Morning All,

Whimsy Stamps is looking for a full time designer to add to our design team! With the addition of different stamp lines, we have decided to break our DT into two teams, one with a main focus on the Whimsy Animals Collection and the other with a focus on the Whimsy Kids Collection.

We are opening a design call to fill one spot on our Whimsy Animals Collection team! We are looking for a dedicated crafter who loves to share their stamped art creations. You could be a card designer, scrapper, or both! This call is open to everyone, from anywhere!

We are opening this call today, Monday, February 23rd and it will remain open until Sunday, March 1st. We will choose a new member on Monday, March 2nd. To be eligible for consideration you must follow the guidelines below and meet all of our criteria.

To enter our Design Team call you must...
- design a NEW card or scrapbook page specifically for this call. Artwork created for previous blog posts, challenges, events, etc. will not be accepted.
- make a card or scrapbook page using an animal image as the main focal point. If you have a Whimsy Stamps Animals stamp, please use that. If not, that's OK.
- use multiple layers of cardstock or printed papers and at least one form of embellishment, such as buttons or flowers.
- post your creation on your blog with details, info about our call and links back to this call post.
- post a link to your creation in the comments section of this post. We will view each piece of artwork and leave you a comment so that you know we saw your entry.

All Whimsy Stamps Design Team members will...
- be a member of the team for a period of 6 months.
- have his/her own blog to showcase and display Whimsy related artwork created with our stamps. You must have a personal blog to be considered.
- create at least one Whimsy related project each week and post on his/her blog with details.
- submit new artwork, weekly, to me for posting in our online gallery.
- participate in as many Whimsy sponsored events as possible.
- closely monitor our DT blog for news and updates to Whimsy related information.

Members of the Whimsy Stamps design team will....
- receive free stamps for the Collection he/she will be designing for and 25% off all other Whimsy products for the length of his/her design work with us.
- have a photo/bio on our design team page with links to his/her blog or website for the length of his/her design period.
