Title: "Work Your Theme" ATC Swap Round 2 SU Closed - send by 8/21/12

”Work Your Theme” ATC Swap Round 2

Sign ups 06/27 - 07/21
Send outs 08/21



Hey Everyone! This swap is for those of us ATC-ers with a theme or who want to start a theme! All themes are welcome from spelling out names, countdowns, specific colors, ABC’s (Just think, you can finally get that last letter of the alphabet you have been eagerly waiting for someone to claim!), or anything else you can dream up!
 You can finish up a theme or start a new one, like me.

We will aim for groups of 4 – so you will be creating and sending 3 ATCs each. If you are a bit more adventurous or need more cards sign up for multiple groups!

Please note that this will be a challenging swap. Some of the themes submitted by each member may include the last few remaining cards to complete the theme, such as an “X” in an ABC theme. In other words, cards that no one else wanted to claim during past swaps! I will make groups and let you claim within the groups unless there is a specific request and I will try to assign those before the claiming.

this sounds fun!

Going to think on themes for a bit :)


Title: Re: "Work Your Theme" ATC Swap Round 2
Post by: gozer on June 28, 2012 07:17:27 AM
 To make it a little clearer I wanted to add this example for listing themes:
 Each number should be a group you want to join (each group is 3 cards)
 1. Zoo ABC's Letters E, J, O (Vertical with A is for)
 2. Character cards for Great TV Show - Grandpa, Cousin Earl (Vertical with Character name on card). Zoo Animals ABC's X (Vertical with A is for)
 3. Brand new theme all cards available (Horizontal or Vertical)
 That would be three groups and three cards needs for each. Does that make it easier? Let me know if it's more confusing. I just wanted to make sure everyone gets the cards they need!

 Some of you have the swap listed twice. I already put in a ticket at the help desk asking for it to be corrected. I am hoping they can correct it today. Sorry!  We should be right soon.  ;)

thanks Brackish Potato! Yes, a four week turn around for them. I was hoping off setting them a bit would help to not interfere with the ongoing swap.

 Okay, this time everyones feedback should be right. The mistake was taken off (THANK YOU HELP DESK!!!) and everything is updated.
 I was looking at all the themes so far and there aren't any hard ones yet. No "X is for", LOL!
 I have two ideas for my theme(s) but I am waiting to see how many groups I need to be in to make it all even out to see which one I do.  :)

Hehe. Round 1 was created to finish themes and get the hard cards. Now we have evolved to starting themes in the swap. I love the vicious never ending cycle. Once you start a new theme you have to finish!

lol!  Actually, in the first round is where I started my Harry Potter abcs, and I managed to get all the rest in the Ongoing swap.  Isn't that crazy?  I can't believe people kept claiming me for them and I managed to get 'em all in like 6 months!  (btw I am just lurking, I don't think I can join this swap this time around.  Though I will be following because I love all you ATC people so much.  ^_^)

 Sorry about the long sign ups. I thought I should give time for everyone to get feedback from the swaps they are already in, etc. Next time it will be shorter. First timer. LOL! I think of Christopher Robbin saying, "Silly bear".
 I am excited to see some new faces I haven't swap with before too! ATC are so addictive.

I am pretty sure that a signup period should automatically end when I sign up. Regardless of the actually length, I always want it shorter :)

Three letters is perfect! At least join one group (meaning your theme needs to have at least three to choose from) and just have your theme as your name.

You can also join one or two other groups if you come up with other themes.

 Yeah, like jmiller614 said. You can just use the letters of your name as your theme and see how people make them. Or you could add a theme too it for a more personal look. Join! Trust me it's fun. I did inchies in a swap first and this is sort of like them but bigger. LOL! And super addictive!

Hmm......I know I have one group I definitely want to sign up for. I need to complete my girls' names so I can frame them for their bedrooms  :D But the two other themes I want could be dangerous to list. Jillybeans might have been lucky getting her Harry Potter ABC's in 6 months but I don't think I would have such luck  :D I've also been contemplating a "shades of Grey" fantasy theme.
   Either way, I'll have a spot open by the 21st  :D

Oh that sounds fun!  I do not think any of mine are hard but what do I know, right? LOL.  I had some other theme in mind for my third one but ended up putting something else without realizing I had already decided on something else.  LOL. Oh well it's all good. I am also now getting ideas from others themes so I will be ready for the next swap. LOL

Ok so I've decided to join.  ;D  Working on my questionnaire now but I have a question that sounds stupid but I just want to make sure I'm on the right page before joining.  There is a lot of talk about ABC's in a theme, you do not have to do letters correct?  I can just choose a theme like holidays, or cats, or weather, just a random theme with no names or letters?

 Mine are not an ABC theme either. You can do whatever.
 And gala_apples, don't worry that yours are tough. We all have the internet to poke around on. Who knows we may find something new and exciting!

I'm definitely interested in this swap, but I have a couple of questions. First: If we pick one theme per group, does that mean that each group we are in only gets one of my themes? For instance if my three themes are Owls, Toy Story, and Harry Potter ABCs, do you give Owls to Group A, Toy Story to Group B, etc? Or do you tell all groups all my themes and just let everyone pick? Also, do I need to be specific within my themes? Like could I just list Toy Story, or would I need to say Toy Story: Buzz, Woody, Rex? Sorry for all the questions, I just wanted to make sure before I signed up.

Post by: gozer on July 12, 2012 01:09:09 PM
 No problem with the questions.
Let's see. First question, will each group be a different theme? Yes. Group A - owl, B - Toy Story, C - Harry Potter. This is easiest to make sure everyone gets the cards they want.
  You only have to put down specific characters if you want specific ones. It's not required. Some people are trying to complete collections and just need certain people. Others (like me) are fine with random. It's whatever you want / need.   ;)

 Hey Swappers! I will be closing up this swap tonight around 8 or 9 o'clock, depending on what time I get home tonight. I should be posting groups up tomorrow afternoon and I will send out a convo when I do. Once the list of groups has been posted you can claim people in your group.
 For example:
 Group 1
Swapper A : goats.
Swapper B : craft supplies.
Swapper C : Greatest TV Show Ever - needs Super, Funtastic, and Amazing
Swapper D : ABC's of the 80's - needs A-H

 You would need to say what you are claiming for each group so there are no repeats. If you are Swapper D you would claim for Swappers A-C. Obviously if you have a theme like "goats" you don't have to worry about repeats but on the rest we would need to know.
 Let me know if this isn't clear! I want everyone to have a fair chance in claiming tomorrow.   ;D

'kay, Gozer, I'm not the smartest cookie in the jar, so I wanna make sure I understand this correctly:

I'm going to claim one card for each member in my group (other than myself) and as I do, I will let everyone in my group know what I'm specifically making for each person (letter N, crochet hooks, Dumbledore.... whatever) so that there are no repeats.  Is that correct?

great, just tell me who you plan on doing for True Blood.  ;)
Oops! I think I get what your asking now. You need to pick one for each person in each group. Right now you only have three cards listed, but you signed up for 3 groups so you will need to do 9 cards.
 for example, in group 4 I need to know who you are doing for True Blood, what number for jmiller614, and for Witchhippie you don't need to claim because it's more of an open theme.
 You will need to do that for each group. Is that clearer?

I'm so excited!  I've been hard at work, drawing for hours today!  :D  Have made fantastic progress on 7 cards so far, but none of them are complete yet...

so gozer... I remember reading in the instructions that you want us to just update our posts as we get new cards, rather than starting a new post each time.  Do you want us to group like:  "here are the cards I got for my *** theme" or "here are the cards I got from group X"?

For some reason my work computer isn't letting me update so i will try this by phone.
 Last time we were suppose to post in groups but not everyone did that and it was hard to find when something new was posted so we can post as we receive. I planned on posting them all as a group once I got a set as well.

 I have ideas for four and started one. The themes I got mean that I can't do my normal cards and I have to think a little harder. It's good. It makes me try to think more creatively.

 If anyone has not finished posting all their claims please do so by tomorrow! Be sure you have one claim per person in each of your groups. If I don't have you listed by tomorrow evening I will send out a PM to make sure I didn't accidently miss your claim.

 ;D What up, fools? (Thinking about Felipe Esparza for some reason tonight.)  :D The last card I'm working on is going to be winging it's way to the faraway magical land of Winnipeg, as of tomorrow. And then my part is done. Yay me!

Any BTW, this whole ATC thing is much harder than I imagined it would be! I'm glad I only signed up for one group.  ;)

Wow!  I feel like I'm so behind on this forum right now!  Been a busy Summer, and it's only getting busier with trying to get things ready for the start of the new school year!  I've been working on my ATC's, and plan to send them on time. I will try better to stalk this forum since there are so many sendouts, and so many in the gallery already!!!

gala_apples, if you need ideas just throw it out here. I am sure people will help. This is a more difficult swap because we can't really choose the themes. I am sure someone can send you some inspiration!

... and I officially got all my cards out today! Whoo Hoo! I hope they all arrive safe and sound and find a nice place to live.  ;D

Ski resorts- Killington. I was trying to do this mountain hilly setting thing by ripping pieces of tissue paper and gluing them randomly, but since they're all white you can't really notice the difference in shades the way you would if you layered a different colour.

I don't want it to seem like I'm complaining. I knew I was signing up for random themes. I just wish I could come up with something that looked cool. I don't want to fail!


Title: Re: "Work Your Theme" ATC Swap Round 2 SU Closed - send by 8/21/12
Post by: jillybeans on August 14, 2012 03:20:22 PM
You could probably do the same kind of technique but with cardstock paper.  Cardstock is fun to rip!  Or, if you like the look of the tissue you paper, you could put down a layer of the tissue paper and then put a little watercolor over it, let it dry, then do another layer, and put on some watercolor paint, and so and so forth!  To make my watercolor dry faster, I use my heat gun, since I am an impatient watercolor user!  ^_^  Watercolors are really cheap at michaels, too.  You can get a set for like $5!  I got one there, and it worked well!  I have the fancy watercolors in tubes now, and I really love 'em!  They are fun to mix color!

Hey gala,

I did a quick google of Killington and saw this sign with the names of some of the slopes, color and shape coded by difficulty: http://snowdaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/advanced-skiers-at-killington.jpg (http://snowdaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/advanced-skiers-at-killington.jpg)

With names like "Devils fiddle" and "Bear Claw," if you decided to do something with that in addition to a pretty slope-scape I think it would be a cool way to make it specific to Killington. Just a thought. Goodluck! :)

 Thanks everyone for helpingout gala_apples. They all seem like great ideas. I like the idea of ripping up the card stock and water coloring over it. The paper will absorb differently at the rips and make it stand out more. Or you could take a couple peices and put the tissue paper over them. I can't wait to see how you work this out. Challenges always push me to find something cool I would have never tried before.

lol!  And that one was easy to think of!  I was kinda thinking the same thing, but I'm trying to figure out a clever way to bring it to life on an ATC.  I wish I was better at doing cats in watercolors!

I am sorry for not posting. Had a bad fall on a knee I just had surgery on in April.  Hubby's off tomorrow so I'll get him to scan the fab cards I've gotten!  They're all stunning.  Hubby mailed mine for all 3 groups i am in Saturday morning.  As I'm new to ATCs I didn't think to put info on the back like so many of you do.  Also a question for you ATC veterans, can I safely store my ATCs in a sports card binder?  We are huge hockey card collectors with over 10000 cards and tons of binders and card sheets.  Just wondered if that was a safe storage method.
