Ongoing ATCs rise again! Signups & claiming all month August 2020.

(photo here)

Discussion and Gallery thread is here: Ongoing ATC swap gallery & discussion 2020
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. 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 – August 2020
*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?
*Do you have access to a camera or scanner so you can 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?


CLAIMING:
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 outstanding/1 sent/1 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 & the crap USPS is dealing with, 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. 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’m going to start keeping my cards in sleeves, so I appreciate low bulk, but that’s not a deal-breaker.

Here are my themes this month:

-I’ve decided to start a TV Sleuths collection! Send me your fave, or I can provide a list of some of mine.
-artist’s choice
-trivia
-robot unicorns
-misheard song lyrics
-snark (general, housewives, Statler and Waldorf, whatever)
-InspiroBot quotation: https://inspirobot.me/
-adult merit badge
-rubber duckies
-Northern Lights
-currently reading/current musical jam
-mythical places

  • Impractical Jokers (Scoopski Potatoes, Where’s Larry?, Don’t stop letting people not help, chicken, family, manager, you know it, refuse you lose, I have a foolproof plan, a portrait of each of the 4 jokers, 38. Lives alone. Has 3 cats, etc)
  • rosy-breasted grosbeak
  • my dog, Mia, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge this June.
  • merit badges
  • snarky housewife

Hi! I live in NJ, USA. I have a huge ATC collection that I’m always looking to add to. Please no overtly religious or political cards. Also I store my cards in baseball card sleeves in a binder, so no bulky or movable (i.e. ones that open or pop-up) cards, please.

I am scent-sensitive (i.e. cigarette smoke, perfume, etc. bother my nose).

*Themes I’m collecting in all mediums, so do whatever you’re best at (hand drawn, mixed media, stamped, collage, digital, whatever):

-vintage aviation
-vintage medical textbook-esque
-steampunk
-gargoyles
-cameras
-Australia
-Canada
-England/ UK
-lighthouses
-the TV show Pushing Daisies
-the Canadian TV show X Company
-the TV show Justified, particularly the characters Tim and Raylan
-The Hunger Games (prefer your own version of the characters/ scenes based on the books, rather than based on the movie actors)

*Themes I’d prefer hand drawn cards for:

-human eyes
-sloth
-llama
-moose
-plague doctor
-gnomes
-peaches
-Henry Foss from the TV show Sanctuary
-Carlos, Alec, or Brad from the TV show Continuum
-the TV show Lucifer
-any character from the Umbrella Academy (the Netflix series, not the comic book version)
-the TV show Being Human (UK version)
