Thank you so much for sending these to us - I adore them!! It's so wonderful to see how you are all using Darkroom Door stamps, and I love seeing how you use different stamps together or combinations of wordstrips and stamps. Very inspiring!

Hope you all have a relaxing and inky Sunday!

Seaside Artist Trading Card Swap Gallery

Darkroom Door - Friday, April 01, 2011

 

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Seaside ATC Swap back in November. We are slowly catching up with the swap videos, so I apologise for the delay in getting them uploaded for you all to see. But they are definitely worth the wait as the artwork is amazing! Lots of inspiration! All of the ATC's you see in this video are using the Seaside Collection.

Anything Goes #2 ATC Swap Video Gallery

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Anything Goes ATC Swap back in September! We had a record number of participants, and many who did different ATC's for their lot, so there's heaps of ATC's in this particular gallery! We also include the ATC's from international participants who send in extra ATC's in exchange for their return postage. Lots of inspiration in this one!!

The ATC swaps for 2010 are now complete... the Seaside swap has just closed, with a few parcels still coming in this week. It will be swapped out this weekend and then we have a break over December. We'll start up the swaps again in January, so check out the side bar for the upcoming themes! There's a few generic themes so you can all get in on the action.

Paris & Seaside ATC Swaps!

Darkroom Door - Monday, November 15, 2010

The Paris ATC swap is now finished and all the ATC's have been swapped out. The parcels are back in the mail to you all... so keep an eye out on your postbox!

We received some beautiful cards in with the ATC's, here they are:

From Vicky Fernando:

Card01

Vicky painted a background onto the card using acrylic paint, then stamped the Eiffel Tower onto acetate and adhered it to the card using brads.

From Teresa Abajo:

Card02

This card is stunning in it's simplicity and design! Teresa has stamped the small seashells and quote from the Seaside Vol 2 stamp set onto beautiful textured paper and mounted them to the card using foam adhesive for some depth.

From Sandra De Marchi:

Card03

I can never get enough of this stamp :) Sandra has stamped the Eiffel Tower onto cream textured cardstock and distressed the edges with a paper distresser. Inked up the edges, wrapped it with ribbon and boom - a beautiful card!

Thanks so much for sending these in with your swaps - we love them and really appreciate them!!!

And if you're keen to take part in this months ATC swap, the theme is Seaside ... so you can create your ATC's using anything from our Seaside Collection! Full details for taking part can be found here.

The Seaside swap will be our last for 2010. We're happy to continue them again in 2011, so if you have a theme idea that you'd like to see us host, please let me know in the comments and we'll see what we can do!

Anything Goes ATC swap update

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Hi everyone...

I've just finished scanning all of the ATC's in the Anything Goes #2 ATC swap and will be sorting the swap later tonight so they're ready to post back to you all tomorrow! I love these swaps... so many different pieces of little art, and the Anything Goes theme gives it such a mixture of styles, colours, textures. I find myself looking at each ATC really closely to see all the little details. Background techniques, different stamps that are used, the funny Photobooth images, laces, ribbons, metal embellishments, punches, there's all sorts on these ATC's!

We have participants from Australia, Malaysia, Taiwan, USA and Belgium!

I also received these gorgeous cards in with the swap parcels...

Thanks so much for sending these!! I love the little letters you write to me inside too :)

So... if you're in this swap, keep an eye on your mailbox soon!

And if you're keen to take part in this months ATC swap, the theme is Paris... so you can create your ATC's using anything from our Paris Collection! Full details for taking part can be found here.

*** Please note*** When sending your swaps in a large envelope, please include a sturdy thick piece of cardboard to keep it from being bent. I've had a few arrive a little worse for wear - nothing was damaged, but a piece of cardboard always helps to keep those ATC's in tip top condition!! Thanks!!

Happy swapping!!!

Anything Goes ATC Swap Video Gallery

Darkroom Door - Friday, September 10, 2010

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Anything Goes ATC Swap back in April this year! We've finally finished the video galley... hope you enjoyed it!!

We're hosting another 'Anything Goes' ATC Swap this month! This means you can use ANY Darkroom Door product to create your ATC's. You could use any of our rubber stamps or any of our paper products such as Photochips, Montage sheets, Filmstrips etc. This is a good chance to use up any little 'leftover' bits and pieces you may have in your stash as you do not need to create identical ATC's for this swap. It really is Anything Goes!!!
