These are a few examples of my Stamped Image Tags. I used one stamp for the two on the far right with watches on them. The other four have two stamps used on them.

This is an example of what you could do with the tags. I stamped the three images and then antiqued it with Acrylic paints. You can read more about it in the following post.
This is an example of a tag purchased from an office supply store. They are really inexpensive.

1. Leave a comment on this post saying you want to join the swap.
2. Send me an e-mail with your real name, user name, and mailing address that your images will be mailed back to you.
3. Read ALL of the rules!

Sign up as directed above.

Tags MUST BE at least 2 1/2" x 4 3/4" ( two and one half inches by four and three fourths inches. You can use larger tags than this, but NOT smaller. You can purchase packages of tags at your local office supply. If you make your own tags, they must have straight edges and be well cut with a paper trimmer, using white or off white color scrapbooking cardstock. NO hand cutting with scissors.

You will need to use StazOn Black ink. This is a permanent ink that will not run when adding mists, water, or coloring with markers on your tags. This will allow for any type of technique the recipient may want to use on the tag.

NO Scraps or Poorly Stamped Images! It would hurt my feelings to have to do this, but I will return poorly stamped images to the person that stamped them. If you need help on how to get clear stamped images, let me know and I will try to help you.

Stamp 10 images on 10 tags. You may use more than one image on a tag as I have done in some of the examples I have shown, but you want them to look good together.

You can use stamps from any company.

Please, write the name of the stamp and stamp company on a separate piece of paper, so that I can post it. Do not write on the back of the stamped image tags. This could bleed through when coloring, etc. and we don't want that.

Place all of your images in one ziplock bag together (to protect them from rain, etc.) and mail them to me along with a SELF-ADDRESSED ENVELOPE with POSTAGE STAMPS to mail your swapped tags back to you.

If you would like to do more than 1 set of 10 tags....You may do 2 sets of 10 tags, but not more than that. You will need 20 tags and two different stamp to use for each set of 10 tags.

Get your Stamped Image Tags to me NO LATER THAN Wed. November 10th. This gives you two weeks to stamp your images and get them to me. I will have them swapped and mailed out to you immediately!

I will send yo my mailing address and a copy of these swap rules when you sign up.

Easy Enough? Hurry and Sign up now and let the fun begin!!!!!

I am in - I saw your post on funtimesoftware yahoo group. Thanks!

Colleen said...

Just checking. You want JUST the stamped images on the white/cream tags - the receiver will do the altering? I have never participated in a swap - this is my first and I want to do it right. :)

Debra Pate said...

Hi Colleen, That is correct. All you have to do is stamp the images on white or cream cardstock. The receiver can you use them just like they are when they get them or alter to their liking.

I'm excited and have already gone out looking for tags. Staples and Office Depot "almost" have the right size but not quite. Already planning to go to Hobby Lobby tomorrow. Looked on line and their large size will work. Okay... I too have never done a swap,but want to do this one. I'm in if you'll have me. JOY
