Stamp and Emboss Swap-Due May 20th

Number of cards- 3/3
Number of players-unlimited
Media-open
Theme-open

My daughter in law recently sent me materials for embossing, including a heat tool. So I've begun playing with rubber stamping and heat embossing. I'm curious to see what others do with this technique.
So, each card must be different but you can mix your stamped images with whatever media you wish. Each card must have at least one heat-embossed image.

Mailing:
* Protect all cards in plastic sleeves.
* US players-Send along a long-sized (business size) envelope stamped with at
least 44 cents postage.
*International players-Send along a large address label and I will provide
envelopes as well as postage.

Host cards not required but greatly appreciated.

I am in love with a technique called 'resist embossing' where you stamp an image and emboss it. then you can colour over your entire page with stamp pad ink, watercolours, etc and simply wipe the colour off your embossed image - lots of fun!

please sign me up

Just a question someone may be able to answer - does embossing powder 'go off' as I have had mine for quite a few years - do I need to buy new powders

NancyL
03-26-2011, 06:01 PM
I have no idea as I have been embossing for less than a month. I would think they will keep indefinitely. You can always try your dated and see if it works....and have new ones for back up incase they don't.

NancyL
03-26-2011, 06:02 PM
You are so welcome to share your cards on the thread.

Elena
03-27-2011, 11:44 AM
Just a question someone may be able to answer - does embossing powder 'go off' as I have had mine for quite a few years - do I need to buy new powders

No, they don't go off. I have had mine for years, at least 3, and they work perfectly fine.

Cathy1
03-27-2011, 01:29 PM
No, they don't go off. I have had mine for years, at least 3, and they work perfectly fine.
Thanks for the advice. I have had mine for years as I used to do scrapbooking and cards B4 I discovered ATCs. I was rash one day and bought an expensive kit with many colours and since then they have just laid in a drawer. Great for the chance to use them again and will probably do so again now that I know they will be OK. It is a technique I had forgotten about.

HollyBear

I took a voluntary day off from the computer yesterday. I got a lot of house stuff done(a load of laundry, ironing, dishes) and a birthday card, one ATC swap and parts of others.
I wanted to see if I could go all day without. Also I have strained my neck, probably from playing compute games.

Added you, Christina. I had a friend over yesterday for art and lunch. I showed her hot to emboss. I'm telling her when she goes to the Mainland to pick up a heat tool and some rubber stamps, and we can get together. I'm willing to share embossing powders. Yesterday, I watched her fascination with embossing.

Love the cards posted in the thread so far!:)


Just a question someone may be able to answer - does embossing powder 'go off' as I have had mine for quite a few years - do I need to buy new powders

I think this question has been answered by now, but no I don't think embossing powders 'go off'. Some of mine are almost 10 years old now and still work fine. The only difficulty I have is with embossing powders that have glitter in them -- but I think that's more to do with the glitter (which won't melt properly I think) then the age of the stuff! :wideeyed:

I haven't had the energy to do any crafting as of late (nor anything else bah) but I can feel it itching again so I hope to get back into the groove soon and create some lovely stamped&embossed cards:)

Crafty.... Hmm I have been embossing for a few years now LOL not as long as you have but I thought glitter DIDN'T melt...LOL Maybe I am doing it wrong or something.
I do know that powder does last and work forever though as I picked up some at a garage sale that was really old and it works great!

Two sets of cards arrived. One from autumnsensation. thanks for the host card.

and one set from Melanie Seppeler. I am guessing this is Melanie S but you don't have your user name on the cards. when people go to give rep points they will be confused. and if you have room only to put a user name or real name, I would go with the user name (which is what I do.)

International players---your returns are going out today!

I think only 1 set of cards is still enroute, so I swapped out the ones going outsdie of the US. These players get their return later so I thought I would give them a head start.

NancyL
05-20-2011, 06:34 PM
some returns went out this mornign and the rest will go out tomorrow. I gave out all your ITraders.
When you get your returns, please note in the thread whose cards you received, give rep points to those players (you rock) and iTrader to me.

Mouseit
05-21-2011, 06:24 AM

RoOskie: embossed a flower with glitters
Mouseit: a love boat stamped and the background lettres are embossed

Thanks all and nancy for hosting!!
I give all of you reppoint because I like them all.

NancyL
05-24-2011, 02:34 PM
I mailed the out of country ones first....even before the due date for the swap. I feel bad that the international players always get their cards so much later. I think I will do this again.

Silly question here. I cannot figure out how to view my own Rep points. How do I do this? LOL

NancyL
05-25-2011, 02:57 PM
Go to your CP...rep points are listed under the subscriptions. I find that if I request for all my subscriptions to be listed, then i can't see my Rep points. so just hit the list subscription and Rep points should appear below them.

SOTO
