6891  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 10 (Signups CLOSED!, Sendouts 2/22) on: January 27, 2008 07:17:17 AM
Whoo-hoo! I made it in! I am doing the happy dance right now Wink And, as silly as this sounds, I had a really bizarre dream last night that left me feeling completely out of sorts when I woke up. This just cleared the last of  that feeling away. I can't wait to see who my partner is and what themes I get to choose from Wink

I just sent my info, and I am hoping that waiting to do this until after my band concert was a bad idea...  I hope there are still enough slots!!!!   Grin  If not, I'll have to be an early bird if there is another one after this *nervously waits in anticipations to see if I will be able to join this round, or not*...   Shocked

I just sent in my info, too! I didn't realize that it was almost full. And I was going to think about it for a while- thinking's done!! Wink

Lamina- What a great stamp! Of course, I'd need to have the whole crew Wink

And, MunLtStmpr, what kind of markers did you use that melted the carving material? Holy cow!

For some of my unmounted stamps, I put double-sided tape (not the thick foam kind, the thin clear kind...I think it comes in a roll labeled as "psoter tape) on an acrylic block and stick the rubber to it. I wonder if it would work with thicker rubber? Then, I wouldn't have to use any nasty glue...

Bruce the Raccoon is fantastic! His little raccoon hands are just perfect. Nicely done Crafty.Canadian!

I was just celebrating the fact that the seam allowances were in there Wink

Now, I don't have to think about it. Thanks for that Crafty.Canadian!

And thanks, ghilie for sending me the pattern and instructions!

I am thinking about joining in on this swap. I've seen so many amazing tins that I am really tempted. If I can make a good dent in the 2 other swaps I have to work on and come up with 5 good categories, then I'll be sending in my info! Otherwise, I'll just sit back and admire all of the goodies that everyone gets Wink

I thought I cleaned up all of the stray marks, but it looks like I missed a couple on the corner. Sorry!

No worries! I love it just the way it is! Grin

I found that if you also trim off the excess rubber, it helps reduces the risk of stray marks. Something I have learnt to do since this swap... Wink

And I should know that because I get unmounted stamps every once in a while and I trim them as close to the image as possible. But, for some reason, I never thought about doing it to these. Maybe because I never thought to mount them, and I treat the excess rubber as the stamping block? Maybe...

no, that is only because they aren't mounted, mounted on something rigid they won't flex & put down those distant corners Smiley. I got some wooden shapes in a mixed bag at the dollar store & will be mounting all my hand carved stamps soon.

Thanks, Penlowe! Now, I feel better Wink

What do you use to adhere the stamps to the wood blocks?

This is such a great idea! Cool fabrics, too! I hate tucking the pen inside, since it always falls out, and when I clip it onto the edge, it always pops off.

Does it have an elastic band around the back side, or is it custom fit for each journal? I think I'll be making one or two of these pretty soon! Thanks for sharing!

PlumCrafty- It looks so cool the way you colored and stamped it!  I had only tested it out using black (And, after I tested it, I thought I cleaned up all of the stray marks, but it looks like I missed a couple on the corner. Sorry!) I like how you over-stamped the smaller blocks onto the larger one- I never would have thought of doing that. Hmmm...I might have to make myself one like it now Wink
