It’s been over a year since we’ve done one of these! I need to do some carving again - I hope you’ll enjoy a challenge!

When you sign up for this swap, put three challenge image ideas below in the comments.

You are signing up to create one of the challenge images your partner will have posted below. Pick one of the three suggestions, carve the image (minimum size is approximately 1" x 1"- no maximum), then send your partner their image stamped at least 5 times. You can stamp it onto sticker paper, cardstock, envelopes, decorative paper, a postcard, etc. Get as creative as you like. Mail the 5 stamped images to your partner by the deadline.

Please be sure to do work you'd like to receive! If your partner has images you aren't comfortable trying to create - it is up to you to message them and negotiate! I'm putting the send date out a month to give time for botched attempts and practice if needed. You can always mail before the send deadline! When you receive your swap don't be harsh, the person may be trying a new craft and not up to your skill level. They've met the requirements if the image is identifiable and it was stamped a minimum of 5 times neatly!

I will be checking profiles and asking questions as needed. I will also angel as needed, but flakers will not be allowed in another of my swaps until they’ve made it right. Hope this sounds like fun!!

Image suggestions: mushroom, iris flower, “GCU MOM” because my son’s headed off to college.

Image suggestions: snail, crow, house (any kind - regular or funky), flying bird, postal stamp, crown. Yes, that’s more than 3, but I thought I’d give a wider selection. 😉

My image suggestion (more than three): - pattern to be used for making continuous patterns / parquet. (No need to be as perfect as M.C. Escher though) - animals: sloth/ squirrel - insects: beetle of any kind - birds: hen/ stork/ starlet/ tit/ blackbird, - plants: poppy/ dandelion/ sunflower - house (any kind)
