Diecut Swap-posting in gallery
« on: October 31, 2015, 09:59:34 AM »
Thanks to all who shared their thoughts on the discussion thread for this swap!  If you have questions on the details posted here please don’t hesitate to ask.

For the purpose of this challenge “ diecuts” will refer to paper shapes and words cut with dies, punches or electronic equipment that achieve a similar result.

Challenge details:
1. Prepare and send to your assigned player a packet of 10 diecuts including at least 4 different designs. This allows players to cut multiples with a die.  All diecuts will be cut from white cardstock. The dies will be selected to work as embellishments on A2 sized winter/holiday themed cards.  I ask that players do not use the basic nested circle, square and rectangle shapes since most players already have access to those.  The diecuts do not necessarily need to be a Holiday/Christmas theme but the card will be.  So if you still have candy corn or pumpkin dies on your desk they will not be appropriate for this swap but banners, labels, sentiments, border shapes will all be possibilities in addition to specific holiday shapes.

2. Once you receive your diecuts you will make one winter/holiday card and post in the gallery. The card's main image will be rubber stamped and at least 1 diecut will be used to enhance the card. The requirement is to personalize the diecut in some manner such as adding color, texture, sparkle or however your creative talents move you. 

3. Option-In this swap you have the choice to make a 2nd diecut packet and will be assigned a 2nd player to send it to. Your packets may be identical. You will receive 2 different packets mailed to you from 2 players.  An additional card will not be required for those players receiving a 2nd packet.

When you sign-up on this thread please tell me if you want to make 1 packet or 2.

Okay, I will try this with one packet, please. 

Question, are we limited to only 10 die cuts, if they fit in a regular envelope?  I am not sure what I am going to pick, but if they are smaller, I might want to include more to make up for the size?

Great Heidi glad you can play.  10 diecuts are required for the swap....what is done above and beyond is up to each player. Thanks for asking!

Kathy-so glad you are back in the crafty groove!

Count me in for one please!

I thought of another question, if we want to do some with watercolor paper, would that be okay or is it best to just stick to white cardstock?

Thanks Jan for organizing a fun swap!

Thanks LeighAnn for the question.  For this first diecut swap I think we should keep it as simple as possible...white cardstock only please.

Ooo Oooo... I just cut my first set and had an epiphany! Since I have a Silhouette, I can cut all mine and then cut around them so I can send the cut out and the negative! I think! LOL

Sign me up. 

And I have a question, I've got several of the smaller dies that are of various critters (bunnies, cardinals, deer, ect.) which will work on a winter/holiday card but are not winter/holiday specific, are they ok for the swap?
