Okay! Has anyone played Set? Basically, the dealer lays down three rows of three cards, and the players stare at them. The first one to spot three that form a set calls out "Set!" and places those three cards in front of him/herself. The gaps in the card rows are filled with new cards; repeat. After the entire deck has been gone through, the player with the most cards in front of him/her wins. This works really well with collage cards, because you can spot all kinds of things that make three a set. Three red backgrounds, for instance, or three cards with faces, or three cards with words that begin with W. The categories are completely makeshift. Once, a player said, "it's a set because these three make me think of loss" and the cards had, like, a tomb, a postcard and a skeleton or something. Entirely up for grabs.

The other game I have played with them is also a create-your-own-categories game. It is like a version of go fish, again forming your own categories as you go. So you have a hand of five collage cards and ask, do you have any cards with rain? Or, do you have any cards with yellow in the foreground? Or whatever, and if not, you draw one from the stack and then discard. The winner is the first to lay down all five cards with a defendable category they ALL belong to.

I usually play to lose with my own cards, because I am so interested in what other people do with them. Smiley

A binder makes sense! Like a photo album or portfolio. I keep this set in a box, because they are for playing games with, but others I have done get stuck around the apartment in order to inform - like This Apartment Protected By Monsters, or House Rules. Here are three more, with a lot of the same elements as my other ones.

This is beautiful, and I love the print! And it will look good WITH black, which is often an issue in my wardrobe. I followed the links from people in this thread, but many of the patterns and sites are no longer available! Did you get a pattern online? Is there one available? And, is your fabric a jersey? You are totally rocking it.

Here's a virtual bouquet of congratulation!

Yeah, it is weird trying to make 52 that all work as part of a set - but very freeing in a way, because they don't all have to be individual stand-alone masterpeices. Here are three more - I think the sofa one is one of my favorites out of the whole set.



And I have a question - what do other folks do with ATCs? Ie, do you send them as greeting cards? Display them? Play games with them? Use them as business cards?

One of the things I was trying to do with these was maintain a no-right-side up policy like regular playing cards have. Some were more successful than others.



I also used the remnants from pages of postage stamps on a few of these.

OriginalYouth - yeah, I also used some noodle-wrappers on those. Thanks for the compliments! Here are three more:



These may be the three most worrisome and the three most purple of the set! One of my materials was a wine magazine, and the little people walking away are from some He-Man-esque comic book.

It's so cool to look over the archives of your gallery and see how your aesthetic has changed! I love the muted tones of your stuff lately, and your creation of different textures.
