Sizzix and Darkroom Door Artist Trading Cards Swap

Darkroom Door - Thursday, March 27, 2014
Every month on the Darkroom Door blog we hold an Artist Trading Card swap. It's a great way for crafters to share a bit of their own artwork with other like minded crafters around the world and gain some new ideas and inspiration! Each month has a different theme. Recently one of the themes was 'Darkroom Door & Sizzix' where all the artists needed to use a Darkroom Door stamp or paper product combined with a Sizzix die or embossing folder. 

 

It was so much fun watching the ATC's arrive in the mailbox and seeing what all the artists created! Each idea was different and the combinations of dies, stamps and embossing folders used gave us all some new great ideas on how they can be used.

 

Here are all of the ATC's that were created for this swap:

 

 

 

Created by Belinda Spencer using Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die -  Festive Greenery #657467, Darkroom Door Stitched Christmas Rubber Stamps and Christmas Word Block Stamp

 

 

 

Created by Godelieve Tijskens using Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die #656634, Notebook Texture Fades #656647, Darkroom Door Carved Birds Vol 2 Rubber Stamps, Wildflowers Rubber Stamps and Flourish Background Stamp.

 

 

Created by Jenny Webster. A Darkroom Door Art de Fleur Photochip was cut using the Sizzix Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die Set Butterflies #658367 on a Sizzix Base tray.

 

 

 

Created by Judith Beattie using the Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die #656634 and the Darkroom Door 'Ferns' Photo Stamp. 

 

 

 

Created by Rachel Greig (that's me!) using Darkroom Door Kimono Montage and Wordstrip, framed with the Sizzix Thinlits Scallop Polka Dot Frame Layers Die #659129

Created by Vicky Fernando using Sizzix Mini Flourish Alterations die #657205, Darkroom DoorWildflowers Vol 1 Rubber Stamps & the sentiment from Gothic Arches Rubber Stamp set.  

 

I'm sure you'll agree with me that the different ideas and artwork from all of these artists is amazing!
