Receiving ~ Animals ~ Whipper Snapper & Penny Black Swaps-Due July 25th
I am starting the 13th version of the Whipper Snapper Swap and the 16th Penny Black Swap all together in one. Both of these companies have such cute images with animals, so let's get one or more of them inked up! The theme is Animals! You do need to use a Whipper Snapper or Penny Black image that has an animal on your card, but the rest is up to your creativity. And--an animal can be a frog, a snail, a caterpillar, a dragon, a hedgehog, a bird, etc--I am sure that is a broad view of animals--but it works for me! And, as usual, there will also be prizes!!!!!!! Read down to see how to get a prize.....................
Yes--I know I am addicted to Whipper Snapper and Penny Black stamps. The WS company store less than 10 miles from my house and I spend way too much time there. Both of the companies make such cute images and everyone has such wonderful ideas when making these cards. I loved all of the cards I have received in the Whipper Snapper and Penny Black swaps I hosted as well as all of WS or PB swaps I have joined here on SCS.
Description: Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! If you make a size different than will fit into an A-2, please include an envie. The theme is Animals--anything with four legs or more! The card can be for a birthday, get well, thinking of you, etc.----any theme as long as it has an animal in the image!
Quantity: 5+1 -You will not get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself! You will get back the cards made from the same company you sign up for--so if you want both kinds of cards back, sign up for both! Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.
Vendor Products: Any stamp from Whipper Snapper or Penny Black that has an animal on it! Please use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU). No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required.
Recipe: This is not required, but please put a sticky note or stamp your card with your signature, so everyone will know who to thank and who to leave a comment for!
Due Date:Wednesday, July 25th - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If I receive the swaps early, I will send them out early. If your cards are received after the due date, I may have to return them to you. Please post in the thread or send me a PM when your cards are postal.
Mailing instructions: Place swap cards in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or the baggie for identification purposes.
Swap Return: Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage to return swaps. Additional postage will be returned if not used. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL--My Post Office will not take them If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5:15 priority stamp or cash and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If you are mailing from outside the US, please include $5 US (or more for multiple spots) to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.
Prizes: OK--this is how you can win some prizes in your return envie:
1--Sign up for three or more spots total in the groups below
2--Be the 25th or 50th name (or 75th ) to be added to the list
3--Other prizes will be added later during the chatter in this thread!
Please post or PM me with any questions.
