For this swap we will be doing the faux leather technique. It is sender's choice of what to make using the this technique. You can make a card, tag, ATC or anything you want as long as part of the project you make uses the faux leather technique.

The picture above is from the tutorial teaching this technique. The tutorial is listed below and you can also get ideas from Pinterest if you need more inspiration.

No sticker slapping! This does not mean you can't use stickers, but do not just put stickers down on your project and call it good. They have to be incorporated into the design and make a cohesive art piece. Do your best work – send something that you would love to receive yourself.

Include with your swap the swap title and your swap ID.

If you have questions, please message me on swap-bot as I am not notified of messages left at the bottom of the swap in the comment section and might not see them as fast as I would if left a message on swap-bot.


No 1's or 3's in the last year with no previous history of unexplained 1's or 3's. You must have at least a 4.9 rating to participate in this swap.

This swap is sender's choice, so if you are very specific about what you can and cannot receive or have a list of dislikes a mile long, this swap is not for you!

Rate your partner upon receipt of your swap. No one should have to hunt down a rating! In my opinion, non-raters are just as bad as flakers!

If you receive the swap and it meets the swap requirements, you must rate a 5 even if it is not your style or something you personally like. Hearts are available if you absolutely loved the swap and thought it was amazing! A 3 rating is for swaps that do not meet requirements or that are late. Please do not be the “Swap Police!” You don't need to investigate every detail of a swap to see if it “cleared the rules” or look at postmarks hoping to catch someone mailing a day late! If it is obvious fine, but don't be petty and go looking for minor “infractions!” A 1 rating is if you did not receive your swap. I will angel those who do not receive a swap I host after they have tried to resolve the situation with their swap partner and are unable to resolve the problem and after they have rated their partner a 1.

Please be kind and respectful – no drama! Swap-bot is supposed to be fun! :)

I played with this a bit today, need to do more, as I'm not yet getting the fun foam hot enough to get a really good impression.

I'd advise you to do this with the windows open--there's a strong odor from the heated fun foam that is probably not good to breathe.

Thanks for the tips @gooddog56 - I haven't tried the technique yet, but it looked super cool. I watched a few other tutorials and they said when the foam starts to curl is when it is hot enough. They also said a tip was to have the stamp already loaded with ink and ready to use immediately off to the side because it cools quickly and you won't get a good impression if you don't do it immediately. The ones I saw also used red rubber stamps, so I didn't know if a clear stamp would work or not, but I was going to try to play with it this weekend. Hope it works like the demonstration in the tutorial! :)
