Discussion and Gallery thread is here: Ongoing ATC swap gallery & discussion 2023
Please make sure you are Watching this thread, or check it regularly.

From the old c’ster thread: This is an ongoing swap, with your level of participation determined entirely by you, with a minimum of one card for the month. People of all levels of card making are welcome. Sign-ups are open all month. Please make sure you are not late or flaky in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.

Artist trading cards can be made by anyone, from any material, with any method. The official card is the size of a rectangular baseball card, 2.5 by 3.5 inches done in a cardstock weight paper. This swap tends to openly interpret what that means. We have seen cards made from nature, sewn, woven, and knitted, pop-ups, movables, mini books, stained glass, clay, and even a 4-d dollhouse room. All skill levels welcome, just send your best work (and try to refrain from critiquing your own cards in the gallery any more than you would anyone else’s!) Preferences can be mentioned when you make a claim.

Definitons:

atc: artist trading card.

artist’s choice: in claiming the creator chooses any theme but sticks to requests like flat cards only or hand-drawn only.

tbd: to be determined, in claiming the artist will pick from the theme list later.

kid card or card made by kiddos: only allowed where the theme list specifically mentions that they would like a kid card. Kid cards are always welcome as extras and should be posted in the gallery.

bulky: are cards that will not fit in a plastic baseball card sleeve

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Questionnaire:
*Name of swap: Ongoing ATC Swap – January 2023
*Lettuce Craft username:
*Email address:
*Your real name AND Mailing address including the country (written as it would appear on the envelope):

*Are you at least 16 years old?
*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?
*Have you met the Participant Conditions?
*Have you checked in with the gallery/discussion thread?
*What is the exact size of an atc?
*Are you able to post pictures here of what you receive?
*Are you aware that if a card is lost in the mail, you are required to resend?
*How soon should you post pictures of the cards you receive?
*When sending sent/received messages to the swap organizer, there are four pieces of information that must be included about each swap. What are they?
*Bonus Q: What was your favorite swap from 2022?

CLAIMING:
Starting January 1, you may begin claiming as soon as the organizer has approved your questionnaire. You may make as many claims as you like during the month as long as you have fewer than 10 claims outstanding (ie, that have not been SENT). After you make a claim, you have 2 weeks to send it; if you look at a calendar, your “due date” will be two rows down. Please keep track of your claims; the organizer will do this also, but in case of confusion it’s always easier not to have to keep scrolling back upthread in search of stuff! :wink:

New swappers: If this is your first swap, you are allowed one claim to start. Once that card has been RECEIVED, you may make up to 10 claims just like everyone else.

Claims are made chain-style:
Swap Organizer posts a list of themes.
Swapper A chooses a theme from Swap Organizer’s list, and posts their own list of themes.
Swapper B chooses a theme from Swapper A’s list, & posts their own list.
etc…
At the end of the month the Swap Organizer will make a last claim and close the swap.

Your claim should look something like this:
I claim ATC Maker for “happy theme”, due (2 weeks from today)
3/1/1 (3 claims made/2 sent/1 of those received)

Hi I’m Swapper, from Country! Please don’t send me anything 3D or with fiery death.

My themes are:
Ponies
Hearts
Sandcastles
Tomatoes

After you have claimed, please message the person you claimed to ask for their address.

Then make your card & send it! :green_heart:
Because this is a swap of tiny papercrafts, you do not need a postal receipt. However, if your card does not arrive within 2 weeks, you will be asked to make and send a new one. (Given the pandemic & global mail nonsense, we’ll play this by ear, but we want everyone to get their cards!)

When you send or receive please be sure to message the organizer and the person your are sending to/receiving from with the following info:
*to (who is getting the card)
*from (who sent the card)
*due date
*theme chosen

this can be super simple:
I sent today!
due 8/14, from Swapper to ATC Maker for happy theme

When you get a card, post a picture to the gallery! You have 3 days from the day you receive to do this.

Feedback will be given when all your claims have been received & all the pictures you are responsible for have been posted.

Please post your general questions, encouragement, and other chatting in the gallery/discussion thread also. (For specific questions message the organizer.) This thread should contain claims only.

Enjoy your ATCs!

Howdy! I live in Colorado. Any kind of ATC is okay (chunky, slim, collage, hand-drawn, etc) except glitter needs to have some kind of seal on it so it won’t slough off. We had enough glitter-shedding from holiday cards, heh.

Lyrics Themes:
All of the children sang ‘we can do it better now’
But I just don’t know what it means to me
I want to take you to the ocean
When you know that you’ve got love in your heart
You’ll be stepping aboard your new life, your new self, your new everything
You never talk about it anymore
You’re running just as fast as you can

Son’s Themes:
hands with an eye in the center, mystic
chakras

Other Themes:
1980s
Anatomical heart
Based on my pinterest colour board https://www.pinterest.com/irid3sc3nt/colour-inspiration-board/

Hi,I’m Linda. I live in coastal North Carolina with my husband and two black cats.

We moved here to be close to the ocean and mountains, and for warmer
weather. I really hate the cold, but I love the wintery images of snow,
snowflakes, ice, etc. My favorite time of year is actually spring. I love seeing the
new plants and baby animals.

I collect certain themes:

alphabet
insects and spiders
positive affirmations
religious icons, including Madonna with child or Mary
Fandoms: Dr. Who, X-files, Supernatural, NCIS,Silent Witness
Rainbows
cariactures of famous people doing everyday things
interesting techniques (but, please, they must fit into my notebook pages so
nothing too thick or out of the size range)
flowers
artist favorite

I am not into cutesy, so no Disney or anime for me.

A funny character from your imagination is perfect, though!
I have one that I drew on my toy box when I was three!

I don’t mind swear words or adult themes as long as they are not mean
or abusive. Old sweary words are fun, like “conniption”, or my Dad’s favorite,
“Dagnabit”!

Just have fun…your creation will find a home in my collection.

Hi! I live in the USA. I prefer flat, paper cards without 3d elements. I prefer hand drawn or painted, but please feel free to do other styles. I love glitter, shiny, shimmer, gold/silver leafing, metallics, glow in the dark. Please no digital prints/reproductions of your work, creepy bugs, clowns, Santas, politics, nudity/pinups/NSFW, curse words or blood/gore. Thank you for claiming me!

Limited palette art - do a piece with black plus one other color. No other colors, so if you pick pink as your color and you are painting a flower you cannot use green for the foliage. It will have to be shades of pink or black. Examples: blue and black, yellow and black, green and black, gold and black etc. You can change the values of each color (i.e. the very lightest to darkest shade for each of the two colors. So for blue, extremely pale blue to deep dark blue and for black you can use black, greys and white). The subject matter is your choice, it doesn’t have to be one of my themes from below.

• Bird or birds
• A super sweet fluffy birdie
• fairy wren
• bird dressed for winter
• bird in clothing
• bird wearing a crown
• bird in a party hat
• steampunk, bionic or robot bird
• crows or ravens
• hens
• hens doing silly things or getting into trouble
• birdies doing silly things or getting into trouble

• Something you would find in a treasure chest or a dragon’s treasure hoard
• Geodes
• crystals
• gems
• jewel encrusted something (normal like jewelry or silly like a jewel encrusted wooden spoon)
• dragon egg
• Fabergé egg

• Enchanted forest (sweet or dark)
• fantasy creature (i.e. dragons, jackelope, wolpertinger, phoenix, unicorns etc.)
• cute creature/mouse/etc on a journey (i.e. something like a little mouse with backpack and walking stick walking in a strange world. Doesn’t have to be this exactly, but something that evokes the same kind of feeling.)
• It’s a zombie apocalypse! Here’s what’s in my backpack…OR Here’s my outfit and weapon of choice…
• stars

• art done in the style of James Christensen, Edward Gorey, Mouseguard, World of Warcraft, Creaks (amanita designs), machinarium (amanita designs)
• Inspired by my “Art I Like” board on Pinterest
• Harry Potter - themes: Potions, Ravenclaw, Luna, Dumbledore, Snape, Hedwig, diadem, sword of Gryffindor, Fawkes, Always, deathly hallows etc.

I live in Colorado. I don’t have a preference on type of card, I love seeing what individual artists come up with. I’m ok with glitter as long as it won’t fall off. I’m good with NSFW images and words.

• mid-century ads modified (taking the imagery and making it snarky)
• dark academia
• anything book related
• Outlander (books or show)
• Sarah J Maas universe (Throne of Glass especially)
• Letterkenny
• dad jokes
• botanical
• cute animals
• Victorian imagery
• forest
• artist choice
• Cozy vibes
• fairy tales (twisted, retold, or traditional)
