Description:

I have been in a few swaps for stamped images and I just love these. It is so much fun to get stamped images from someone else's stash of rubber/acrylic stamps. I have quite the stash myself, but we all know there are always more out there that we want and this is a way to get those images without buying the stamp ourselves. I make a lot of handmade cards and use rubber/acrylic stamps on just about everyone of them, so I just love to get all different images; even sayings. For this swap you will have 1 partner and send them TEN stamped images on WHITE CARD STOCK. All images must be AT LEAST 1x1 inch and the paper be big enough to make fancy cuts around them if we like. These all should be stamped in BLACK INK so that we may color in the images if so chosen. I hope everyone enjoys this swap. 

This is an international swap. By signing up you agree that you might have to someone outside of your own country.  Check with your local post office to make sure you have the correct amount of postage on your envelopes.

Make sure to write "via swappermania - April - Stamped Images" somewhere on or inside the envelope. I will angel this swap if necessary, only if you have contacted your partner, have not heard from them within a few days, or have not received your swap within a month (remember, sometimes it takes longer to get mail from around the world.)

This is a swap for all you USA fb makers & swappers!


You will make 5 fbs (MUST be made by you!) These can be made FOR anyone including yourself! I have pals I usually make fbs for (I'm sure you do too! If not, I'll give you my info and you can make them for me.)


Friendship Books can be up to the size of a standard postcard in size. They must have what you think is a nicely decorated front cover. You don't have to decorate the back if you don't want to.


You may laminate the covers if you wish-but you don't have to. Using staples is fine! Just make sure to decorate the front cover :)  I usually only place 3-4 pages in my own fbs, how many pages your fbs have is your choice! Remember the more pages it has, the longer it will take to get home!


You can also include some extras if it's ok with your partner (email them first to find out).

This is for USA swappers only (yes, this includes AK, HI, APO/FPO, and US Territories).

It is a good idea to write your partner a note letting them know the swap name and your name and send it along.
