Welcome to our new Nutshells Blog. We have a great range of new Nutshells on their way, but before we bring them out we need your help! We are looking for Design team to help give our little Nuts a great home! To be in with a chance is simple.

Our wonderful friend, and First DT member Nikki, has created this fantastic sketch for you to follow and as a bonus we would like you to use the exclusive Nutshells image below, which has been designed especially for our Design Team call.

Entrants should leave a link to their card in the comments section, this way we can view your entry easily and also take a sneak peek at your other work! Alternatively you can email us your card and 3 more examples of your work to
The Design Team will be rotated every 6 months to give everyone an equal chance. We ask that DT members use each stamp we send and create at least one card per week (but the more the merrier!). We also ask that you take part in any challenges we set and preview stamps on the run up to release. Please Blog about your finished Nutshells creations and send us a photo of your work, which we will upload to the Nutshells Blog.

We are happy for our stamps to be used alongside other challenges and would like for them to be continually used after release to help with promotion.

The Nutshells image above will be available until the closure of the DT call, and we ask that all who use it respect our Copyright, and give credit to Nutcrafters Designs.

We will choose 3 DT members on the 5th June, Good Luck!
Katie and Colette.
