    Stamped With A Twist - All Mediums - Due June 12

    Due Date: 12 June 2020
    Withdrawl: None, if I send an envelope
    Sign up by: 15 May 2020
    Cards: 3:3
    Number of players: 20 (for now) (Open to U.S. only for now)


    Hello, everyone! I thought I would host an easy challenge - I will send you an envelope with at least 7 stamped images. You choose which ones you want to use, make 3 ATCs using any Mediums you want (except bulky/chunky), and keep the leftovers or give them away to another player. Easy, right? Here is what each envelope will contain:
    ~At least 7 stamped images that are ATC sized and suitable as a focal image and/or as background elements. (You will provide the ATC base...stamped images will not be on an actual ATC.)
    ~Images may be on standard cardstock, Bristol/mixed media paper, bookpages, security envelopes, scrapbook paper or tissue paper (that's the twist...you'll get a mix of papers.)
    ~Images will be a mix of Stampers Anonymous (aka Tim Holtz), Carabelle Studio, Viva Las Vegas Stamps, Santoro (aka mini Gorjuss Girls), Bo Bunny, Penny Black, Visible Image...who knows?!
    ~I use black archival ink, which is suitable for anything you want to do...watercolor, pencils, inks, alcohol markers, etc...
    ~Open to U.S. (and maybe Canada?) players for now. I hate saying that, but I honestly dont know how well or fast the mail will run to nations outside of the U.S. right now.

    PLAYER EXPECTATIONS
    ~Only sign up if you are 100% able to make cards. I understand if there is an emergency, but don't sign up if you're over-tasked.
    ~To join, post to this thread AND PM your address to me. If I don't get your address within a few days of posting, I will drop you from the swap in order to allow someone else to play.

    ~You MUST post to the forum once you receive the stamped images.
    ~I am mailing in good faith - please include a postage stamp to reimburse the one I use to mail the envelope. Neutral iTraders will be given if you back out after I mail the envelope.
    ~Use at least one of the stamped images as your ATC's focal image. (You can totally cut up or alter the images however you like...get creative!)
    ~Let me know if you need me to fussy cut your main images!
    ~DON'T slap a couple pieces of paper together and glue the stamped image on top. There is zero creativity in that. Challenge yourself in making these ATCs interesting... pleasing...

    ATC GUIDELINES
    ~ATCs MUST be 2.5x3.5 inches with straight, cleanly cut lines.
    ~NO LOOSE GLITTER - if the cards are messy with loose glitter, it will be mailed back to you. (Glitter glue is fine!)
    ~NO BULKY ELEMENTS. A flattish gem or brad is okay, but nothing that stands up above the card too much. Pad your envelope with a piece of cardstock if you use any bulky elements.
    ~Provide TWO stamps...one to put on the return envelope and one as a reimbursement for the envelope with the stamped images.
    ~I will provide the return envelope, so please include a return address label.

    Any questions? Who wants to play?

    Welcome, NancyL! I will add you to the list and will let you know when your envelope has been mailed.

    I forgot to mention that I am taking care in setting up these envelops. I naturally avoid social gatherings anyway, haven't traveled, and am teleworking from home. I also make sure to wash my hands before stamping as an extra precaution. For those envelopes that need to be sealed with a lick, I use a bit of tap water (but may end up just going to washi tape.)

    And Scotch tape would be fine for taping them shut. Sometimes my washi tape doesn't stick worth a darn, lol. Thanks for taking all the precautions! Looking forward to seeing the goodies!

    Welcome, everyone! I will pack the envelopes and let you know when they've mailed! And very true, Plumhill! There are only a couple washi tapes that I trust enough to use on the outside of the envelope...scotch tape would definitely be better
