Ongoing ATC swap, January 2022

Ongoing ATCs, Jaunary 2022! New year, new ATCs. :green_heart:

(card by @bluebird, photo by @megwell)

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.

ac: 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 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?
*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: Do you prefer video or text instructions for learning something new?

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!

Happy New Year!

I’m Ann, currently in Maryland. I prefer kid-safe (creepy/nature is fine, profanity/R-rated not) & no unsealed microplastics, but otherwise have fun! :slight_smile:

Themes for me:

*draw me a map of:
-someplace real that you love or miss
-someplace that doesn’t exist
-something that’s not a place

*something you’d include in a spell book
*good potion ingredients
*things Baba Yaga would keep on her shelf

*things painted or carved on stone (cave art, runestones, garden rocks, etc)

*Little Good Things (something that makes you happy!)

*anything from one of my previous lists

Themes for my kid: (favorite colors pink, gold, red, teal)

*anything Legend of Zelda, especially BtoW
*cute animals
*flowers, herbs, or magical properties of plants

I claim @thanate for a map due 1/15.
Claims (total for the month): 1
Sent (in transit): 0
Received: 0
Outstanding: 1

I’m Laura in Washington State.

Here are some themes, in no particular order!

  • medieval manuscript style creatures (non-human, think bestiary) or lettering (Here’s a handy search for some of the things I’m talking about, but it’s not limited to just these: https://tinyurl.com/ybdun5rc)
  • Pokémon (I’ve started a collection and want just one of each Pokémon; please check the list in the top post of my collection thread to see which ones are already taken!)
  • Animals (shoebill stork, moray eel, octopus, other weird sea creatures, giraffes, degus…)
  • Something to do with @katsuyukimoray, my plushie eel blog on Instagram
  • Animal Crossing (Boomer, Nook Nephews, Flick, Gulliver, Gullivarr…)
  • Other video games (Persona 3, 4, or 5, Final Fantasy (esp. XIV), Stardew Valley, Civilization V, Mario Kart, Tetris…)
  • Seattle/Washington State
  • Interesting word definitions/words that are fun to say
  • crafting (sewing, crochet…)
  • quotes from female authors (esp. Dorothy Sayers, Connie Willis)
  • Osaka, Japan
  • Renaissance England (Ren Faire type stuff)
  • Anthropomorphic animals in period/regional garb and/or doing something interesting
  • Board games (Code Names, Mysterium, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Dixit, Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Clank, etc)
  • Dungeons and Dragons (current character is a female chaotic good satyr sorcerer in a fantasy setting, but more general D&D themes are good too!)

I’d prefer nothing gory, political, religious, or NSFW, no shedding glitter, and nothing bulky, as I’ll be keeping my cards in a binder with plastic sleeve pages.

I claim roler for tbd!

1 total claims ——1 in progress claims, 0 in transit, 0 received

I live in the USA.

My preferences:
— Hand drawn or hand painted are my very favorite (of all skill levels!), but please do feel free to do other styles.
— Please no digital prints or printed reproductions of your work.
— I prefer flat paper cards without 3d elements so I can store them in sleeves. If the theme you picked needs to be bulky (i.e. moveable cards) that’s fine too.
— I love glitter & shine, gold/silver leafing, metallic, glow in the dark etc.
— I would prefer not to receive: creepy bugs (things like spiders, wasps, centipedes), clowns, political, nudity/pinups, curse words or blood/gore.

Thank you for claiming me!

Themes:

Botober — Weird but fun prompts! Please write the prompt on the back so I will know what it is in the future.

https://artprompts.org/ - but nothing too creepy or gory please! Please write the prompt on the back so I will know what it is in the future.

• Autumny scene
• Pumpkins
• pretty tea cups or coffee mugs
• Put glitter on it! Either one detail or go crazy and do the entire card with glitter!
• bird wearing a crown
• ostentatious –birds/cute animals/people wearing crazy/bejeweled fashion, jewelry or objects
• a dragon’s hoard
• a magpie’s hoard of shiny things and treasures
• something that would go in a cabinet of curiosities
• fly agaric mushroom in your style (realism, whimsical, papercut etc.)
• Enchanted forest (sweet or dark)
• potions shop
• wizard’s study / library
• secret compartments / secret passageways
• interesting or fanciful homes/buildings (i.e. castles, Victorian houses, mushroom houses, other whimsical houses, haunted houses etc.)
• cute robots (i.e. bird robots or a cute robot like the ones from Machinarium (game by amanita designs)
• art done in the style of World of Warcraft, Creaks (amanita designs), machinarium (amanita designs)
• 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.)
• birds — songbirds, chickens (girls not roosters), magpies, corvids, crows, ravens, eagles, hawks are favorites, but really any bird will be loved!
• bionic or robot bird
• chickens doing silly things or getting into trouble

I claim lynx2lancer for tbd!

2 total claims ——2 in progress claims, 0 in transit, 0 received

I live in the USA.

My preferences:
— Hand drawn or hand painted are my very favorite (of all skill levels!), but please do feel free to do other styles.
— Please no digital prints or printed reproductions of your work.
— I prefer flat paper cards without 3d elements so I can store them in sleeves. If the theme you picked needs to be bulky (i.e. moveable cards) that’s fine too.
— I love glitter & shine, gold/silver leafing, metallic, glow in the dark etc.
— I would prefer not to receive: creepy bugs (things like spiders, wasps, centipedes), clowns, political, nudity/pinups, curse words or blood/gore.

Thank you for claiming me!

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
-adult merit badge
-time machines
-something inspired by my papercraft Pinterest board (but non-paper interpretations are welcome): https://www.pinterest.com/meganknoll/papercraft-inspiration
-found poetry/found caption
-keyholes
-currently reading/current musical jam
-misheard song lyrics
-robot unicorns

I’m Laura in Washington State.

Here are some themes, in no particular order!

  • medieval manuscript style creatures (non-human, think bestiary) or lettering (Here’s a handy search for some of the things I’m talking about, but it’s not limited to just these: https://tinyurl.com/ybdun5rc)
  • Pokémon (I’ve started a collection and want just one of each Pokémon; please check the list in the top post of my collection thread to see which ones are already taken!)
  • Animals (shoebill stork, moray eel, octopus, other weird sea creatures, giraffes, degus…)
  • Something to do with @katsuyukimoray, my plushie eel blog on Instagram
  • Animal Crossing (Boomer, Nook Nephews, Flick, Gulliver, Gullivarr…)
  • Other video games (Persona 3, 4, or 5, Final Fantasy (esp. XIV), Stardew Valley, Civilization V, Mario Kart, Tetris…)
  • Seattle/Washington State
  • Interesting word definitions/words that are fun to say
  • crafting (sewing, crochet…)
  • quotes from female authors (esp. Dorothy Sayers, Connie Willis)
  • Osaka, Japan
  • Renaissance England (Ren Faire type stuff)
  • Anthropomorphic animals in period/regional garb and/or doing something interesting
  • Board games (Code Names, Mysterium, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Dixit, Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Clank, etc)
  • Dungeons and Dragons (current character is a female chaotic good satyr sorcerer in a fantasy setting, but more general D&D themes are good too!)

I’d prefer nothing gory, political, religious, or NSFW, no shedding glitter, and nothing bulky, as I’ll be keeping my cards in a binder with plastic sleeve pages.
