Welcome to my Altered Bingo Card swap...something "new and different."

In this swap you will be responsible for altering and sending in FIVE (5) bingo cards TRUE TO THEME signed up for! These can be used on virtually anything: Layouts, mini albums...you can even collect them like tags and ATCs. As a matter of fact, think of them as bigger ATCs!


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

1) PLEASE DO YOUR BEST WORK. Please only send in bingo cards that you WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECEIVE IN RETURN. Please do not just randomly place a few things on the card and send them in. I will send them back to you. I've also been known to also make a few "comparable" projects for people who send in "inferior" swap items. I don't think it is fair for anyone to receive something elaborately done in exchange for effortless pieces.

2) COMMUNICATE and check in often. If we don't hear from you we will assume you are not playing along anymore. This is a FLAKE FREE swap, but if you get into the habit of signing up for swaps and not completing them, people will notice!

3) Make FIVE (5) and get back 5 cards in each category you sign up for. You can make them identical or you can do each one different, completely up to you.

DUE DATE: 4/30/14

4) Please post pictures of your work in the forum so that we can all enjoy them and be inspired.

5) SIZE and EMBELLISHMENT SPECIFICATIONS : Each card must between the sizes of 3x4 to 5x8.

You can purchase scrapbook bingo cards (i.e. Jenni Bowlin) or use regular ones. I've also found some online and printed them on cardstock. Either way, please make sure they are quality cards that are STURDY. You can back each card chipboard if they aren't already sturdy.

Please make sure your cards are embellished FIVE times with 5 different items, this includes techniques. For example, I might 1) put 3 flowers, 2) 5 bling pieces, 3)a die cut, 4)lace/ribbon and 5)ink the entire card. This counts as FIVE different types of embellishments.

For another card I might 1)stitch, 2)use chipboard pieces, 3)add a Thicker title, 4)use a stamped image and 5) a Tim Holtz ticket. This counts as FIVE different types of embellishments. You certainly use more. The idea is that these are elaborate.


6) Please be sure to include your name on the back of your creations so the receiver can know who they came from.

7) MAILING: Please PM me for my address. Be sure to include the same amount of postage on your return envelope (or inside your envie) as you put on the mailing envelope plus 2 more (just in case the ones you receive are heavier OR bulkier than the ones you sent.) If your envelope is in good condition, you only need to send a return address label & postage -- I'll reuse your envelope! (This is usually what everyone does. Just include a note and let me know what to do.)

* If you don't send postage, I won't be able to return cards to you.


Here are some examples:

This would also be fun. Again I have never done it so I assume you will tell us the size of the bingo cards or where we get them?

Seems like we have enough interest! Give me a few days to write up the specs and find some more examples. Any ideas for categories? Specific categories or a general FLAKE FREE send 5 get 5 back?

I am definitely leaning towards the flake free. How about we start this one with broad groups: a feminine, masculine, Spring/Summer. That way you aren't getting back Christmas or pet bingo cards or something you won't really use because it is random. Thoughts?

I would say online. I can also email you my page that I created with different ones. Let me know...they are pretty randomly titled but they will work. You would just have to print them on cardstock and cut them out.

Had to clear my desk a bit to allow more than a 6"x6" space to work on a different project, and uncovered my new bingo cards and lots of embellies....so my feminine set is nearly done! And the project I was going to work on is still waiting, lol.

You can print them on card stock, yes. It needs to be an already existing template with your added embellishments.

I have some packages that have arrived, so I will check them in later.

Artesha, there are DCWV bingo cards at M's that go with that Vintage line. The top one is pink, I have yet to open my package to see the rest BUT I, too, found some online that I printed on card stock and plan on using.

Thanks, Henva. I went to M's this past Saturday and I couldn't find them anywhere! I will check online for the free ones today.
