Card by @Juju, photo by @thanate

Discussion and Gallery thread is here: Ongoing ATC swap gallery & discussion 2022
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 – November 2022
*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?

*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’s you favorite sign of fall?

CLAIMING:
Starting November 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!

I’m Megan in Indiana, USA. I welcome cards from all skill/experience levels! Nothing political, preachy, Covid-related, or shedding glitter, please. I’m not a fan of vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake, but if you’ve got a great quotation you want to use with a swear word or something in it, go for it. (Except the c-word; no time for that.) I keep my cards in sleeves in a binder, so I appreciate low bulk, but that’s not a deal-breaker.

Here are my themes this month:

-Something for my TV Sleuths collection! Send me your fave, or I can provide a list of some of mine.
-artist’s choice
-James Whitcomb Riley’s “The Raggedy Man” (CONTENTdm) or “When the Frost Is on the Punkin” (CONTENTdm)
-rejected Macy’s parade balloons
-the film White Christmas (I could pretty much quote it for you right now, so weird deep cuts are totally fine :laughing:)
-not your average Santa
-weird recipes
-bad puns/dad jokes
-Pick three: Incorporate three of the following elements in your card

  • Neon
  • Quotation
  • Doodling
  • Coffee/tea
  • Leftover supplies (use your scraps/offcuts/leftover paint, etc. from another project)
  • Stencil

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, Santa Claus, politics, nudity/pinups, curse words or blood/gore. Thank you for claiming me!

Themes

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).

For these Christmas themes, please no Santas. Birds in a Santa hat is fine, just not the Santa Claus character. Thanks!

• Pink and White Christmas tree or wreath (just pink and whites!)
• Christmas cookies in the style of Endymion’s cookies
• bird ornaments (especially red birds / cardinals)
• figgy pudding
• nativity
• snowglobe
• cute turkeys
• cute bunnies

• A super sweet fluffy birdie
• fairy wren
• bird dressed for winter
• bird wearing a crown
• bird in a party hat
• steampunk, bionic or robot bird
• crows
• hens
• chickens 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.)
• 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.
