183  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / My May 2011 ATCs on: December 05, 2011 11:37:30 AM
The second swap I ever joined was May's Ongoing ATC Swap.  I joined at the very tail end of it and I had never done ATCs before that point.  They just looked like so much fun to do!  So, here are my first ever ATCs!

For lolaandbeans' Audrey Hepburn and Trains theme.  Audrey is was done with masking fluid and watercolors, with some added sparkle with a gel pen.  The train was cut from an old Monopoly board and the card was mod podged on. 

For blupaisan's Nautical/Seaside theme and Redstar13's Buffy the Vampire Slayer theme.  The ocean was done in layers of tissue paper applied with mod podge and then watercolors on top.  The little starfish are real (I have a whole container of them).  Mr. Pointy has a fabric background and sparklie ribbon.

For lolaandbean's Balloon theme.  The clouds were done in chalk using a stencil I made.  The balloon are stamped and filled in with Souffle and Glaze pens.

Thanks for looking!
184  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATCs crafted for the Work Your Theme Swap on: December 02, 2011 04:15:48 PM
After being in the Ongoing ATC swap for a couple months, a new ATC swap was discussed and created and started in August.  It was called the Work Your Theme Swap and its sole purpose was to start and/or complete a ATC series you had in your theme list.  It was a great swap and I got almost half of my Harry Potter alphabet collected in that swap alone.  Here are the ones that I made for it:

For Ragstostitches's red/black/white theme and Brackish Potato's KITCHEN theme.

For Jmiller614's Wonders of the World theme.

For MichelleCraftBasket's Pirate ABCs theme and GoatGoddess's Alphabet theme.

For Brackish Potato's Christmas Countdown theme and MintDawn's Dr. Who ABCs.

For CuriousCoffee's Zombie theme and Mod35TBabe's Tim Burton theme.

For Redstar13's Buffy the Vampire Slayer ABCs.

For gozer's Lost ABCs.

Thanks for looking!
185  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / October's ATCs on: December 02, 2011 03:13:20 PM
So, I was going to wait until the end of the year and post all the ATCs I've done for the year together, but then I realized that I've done over 90 ATCs this year, and that would be one picture intense post.  So, my friend gozer, suggested that I break it up into months.  Great idea!  So, I will start with October.

Here are all the cards I made for October's Ongoing ATC Swap (and a couple personal swaps, as well)!

For Mountain and Clouds for her ATC sized tarot cards theme.

For Robinpich's Typography theme and Imera's mythological creatures theme.

For Mooseyy's Narwhal theme and for knitpurl's cat theme.

For gozer's Maggie Stiefvator theme and coryjo's Halloween theme.

For Calluna's well dressed animals theme and coryjo's flowers theme.

For Brackish Potato's Christmas Countdown theme.

For Brackish Potato's Christmas Countdown theme and Mod35TBabe's old Hollywood glamour theme.

186  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Blue and Silver Wreath on: December 02, 2011 01:52:40 PM
My sister loved the idea of a homemade wreath.  I made one for myself and after I saw how she decorated her Christmas tree I set out to make her one!  She did blue and silver on her tree with an emphasis on snowflakes.  With that in mind, I set off to Michaels and got the supplies and put together her wreath.

Here it is hanging on my door.  I first attached a string of battery operated lights to the wreath and wired it onto the back.  Next I put on the blue snowflake ornaments using thin wire.  I shoved in the silver leaves stems on either side, then the curly stems, and then the sequin stems.  I found some ornaments that were on long wires meant for what I was doing and stuck them in randomly and then added the tiny little snowflake ornaments.  Done!

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims.  Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps.* This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  


Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting of received ATCs is required for this swap.  


1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   sneezing
2)   purple people eaters
3)   wandering men of grief
4)   jumping jehosophats
5)   birds in hats


1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  

1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  December ATC Swap--Sent[/i] or December ATC Swap--Received (or some variant of that, lol)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to whom(4), in each email to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

Send by 12/16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> YowzaSwapper = fantasmic theme

Send by 12/17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> WowwieSwapper = stupendous theme
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 = yet another fascinating theme


This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the gallery!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer.  This thread is specifically for claims only.    
189  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / My Poinsettia Wreath on: November 20, 2011 09:09:28 PM
I JUST finished my Christmas wreath for my door.  What can I say, inspiration struck me.  I designed it in my head right as I was trying to fall asleep one night this past week.  Isn't that how it always work?  Anywho, it was supremely easy to make and really didn't require much to do.

Here is the finished product:

And here are the shots of it coming together:

Here are all the components that went into the wreath.  It took a poinsettia stem, two super cool ornaments that I got at JoAnn's, and some berry picks.  Not shown is my glue gun, scissors and wire.  I hot glued on the ornaments to start with and then secured each with a couple pieces of wire on each end.

And here it is with the berry picks put in, and a couple of the leaves from the poinsettia stem that I glued in.  Voila!  Super easy and fast wreath!

Don't worry, the wreath isn't currently residing on my door.  It was just up for picture taking sake.  It will go up officially after Thanksgiving!  Yay!

Thanks for looking!
190  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Yeti Stuffie! Squeee!!! (WARNING: Lots of pictures!) on: November 15, 2011 10:20:40 AM
My partner in the One Tiny Stuffie Swap Round 8 listed mythical creatures as one of her desired stuffiness.  After some research, her Yeti came to life!

Meet Mogi!

Mogi is a from a pattern I made myself.  He is made of fur, blue felt for his face, safety eyes, and poly-fil!

Mogi's favorite pass times are building snowmen, making and eating snow cones and sledding.

Here's his furry little backside.  ^_^

And all dolled up and ready to be sent to his new home in Canada.  I also whipped up a quick watercolor of the stuffie that I sent along with him, since he's so handsome.  He has a tag that explains his likes, and the back explains that he suffers from major bed head and needs to be brushed regularly to maintain optimal handsomeness.

AAAAANNNNND I loved him so much, I made one for myself!  ^_^

Meet Migo, Mogi's twin brother!  (Yay for Yeti pals!)

Migo's loves snow shoeing, snow ball fights, and licking icicles.  He's a bit of a dare-devil!  And his hair shows for it, because no matter the grooming, it is untamible!

Furry backside shot and contemplative above shot!

Strike a pose, Migo! 

Thanks for looking!  If anyone is interested, I would be willing to post my extremely simple pattern!
