3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Best White Stamping Ink? on: September 29, 2013 07:39:33 AM
I am looking for a white stamp pad to stamp onto black tissue paper.  There are quite a few choices, but what one has worked best for you?  This will also be used to stamp on black cardstock for Halloween cards.

Details of Swap
Creepy=   causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease
  +
Cute=   attractive in a pretty or endearing way

You'll be making one stuffie under eight inches for your partner based on your partner's questionnaire and whatever site links they provide. Dissecting/reconning stuffies is allowed.
Try to be as precise as possible when answering the swap questionnaire and keep in mind that not everyone knows Jack Skellington or Chuckie so broader themes are sometimes easier to craft around. Also understand that everyone has different skill sets, so you might not get a perfectly finished or look-a-like character.
I will endeavor to match swappers up based on key points in the questionnaire, but it is not always possible to match likes and tastes.

As in every swap, communication is key.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-post in this thread
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post photos of your received stuffie in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partner to have them post for you)

- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES

Details of swap:
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October (Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.)! Your five themes should be related to these.

In this swap, participants will have one partner.  Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes.  For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament.  The tiny thing should fit within six square inches. If you need a couple inches wiggle room, that is okay.  This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.

After you have been approved, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know.  I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread weekly (I'll ask a question each week)
-post photos of your received OTT in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partner to have them post for you)

Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings     = tiny ----  jewelry set     = Not tiny
artist trading card  = tiny ----  8x10 drawing = Not tiny
small change purse  = tiny ---- clutch purse    = Not tiny
Bottom line:    4"x4" dimensions
      If the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay.
      If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

Details of Swap
Summer is coming to a close and it's that time again.  The theme is Halloween!

What is a chunky house, you ask?  The most succint description:  mixed-media collage.  Check out the links below for inspiration or type "chunky house" (in quotations) in the craftster search box.

In this swap, participants will be put into groups of 5. Each member of the group will make and send out one house, decorated front and back (embellish, embellish, embellish!), to each person in your group.  Houses should be sturdy enough to stand when attached to other houses or leaned against an object, so please select a sufficiently sturdy base material (nothing floppy). Examples of base material: paperboard, matboard, cereal box cardboard, wood, layered cardstock, foam core. There's probably more ideas for base material floating around out there.  Each house should measure between 3" to 4" wide, and should be no taller than 7".  If you would like to sign the back with your name or craftster name and date, that would be great!

Let's make sure we build a bunch of high quality chunky houses!  I will try to match you all up based on your swap questionnaires.  Please consider your partners likes and dislikes.  If you disliked blood-soaked machetes would you want one on the chunky house you receive?  Probably not.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partners to have them post)
I will post a link to the Gallery when I have it available, after the first person has sent their chunky houses.

1Because this is a paper craft swap, DC numbers and mailing receipt copies are not required.  HOWEVER, if for some reason your chunky house does not arrive at its destination you will be required to re-send.  Also, it is a good idea to write "DO NOT BEND" on both sides of your package and/or to have your house sandwiched between cardboard for extra protection (Thanks for the tip, Killam Creative!).
