These cards are from a personal swap I just did with pilarfarmer and wanted to show them off!!






I love them!!!

Great start to the gallery!  I love the witch and cat sitting in the tree.

Post by: jennden on September 25, 2012 02:38:38 PM
I love all the cards, but the last one is my favorite ;D


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: gozer on September 26, 2012 05:40:54 AM
 The last card is my favorite too. I find it funny that the "Vampires Suck" card is on a Harry Potter page background! "Hermione snapped"!!! Awesome!


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: La Chapa on September 28, 2012 11:31:24 AM
Wow! That's a lot of cards!  I like the vampire one the best, although it kinda grosses me out a little.  The blood around the fangs is a little too realistic!  The witch series is great too.  I love the silhouettes, and of course the moon!

Post by: wittmert on September 28, 2012 06:47:11 PM
Here are the cards I received from JillyBean (zombie) and MissingWillow (witches brew). They are both fantastic!


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: fancybutch on September 28, 2012 07:51:40 PM
love the gentleman zombie card! great start


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: La Chapa on September 28, 2012 08:29:54 PM
Oh wow wittmert, I love both of those!  And so commences the swap anxiety.  Oh well, happens to me every time!  :P


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: CDEeeek on September 29, 2012 06:04:45 AM
Wow, cool start. I have swapped with pilarfarmer before, she is really talented. And I like the skully bug one in the second set posted.


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: Oyhana on September 29, 2012 07:01:43 AM
Love the backbround and spider web on the zombie card and the neon cockroaches on the witches brew card!


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: MissingWillow on September 29, 2012 07:36:58 AM
I had such anxiety over this swap because I've never made or received an ATC before.  Now I think I'm hooked.   :)  Here is the card I received form wittmert, she used paint, colored pencil, collage, glitter and french knots.  How clever!



And from jillybeans the most awesome demon lady!  Mwahahahaha



Both sent me ATC backgrounds to play with.  Thank you so much, ladies, I love them! 


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: jillybeans on September 29, 2012 08:21:46 AM
Yay!  I'm glad you both like the ATCs I made you!  Yay yay! 

I also received from wittmert!



An awesome embroidered fabric pumpkin!  How cool!

Thanks so much!  Can't wait to see what else I get!

Those cards are AWESOME!! Jillybeans, I love your vintage-y spooks! So great! OMG- I'm afraid the ones I made are not NEARLY that cool!  Swap anxiety, indeed.... :o

I got a very adorable card from fabricfriend today:



She sent along some cute extras as well!



Thank you fabricfriend!  I love the techniques you used on this card - I love the text elements and the tiny little spider is perfect!!  LOVE IT!

Wow, there are so many great cards already! I have another to add. From MissingWillow, an amazing Dracula/graveyard card!!



I love the glittery background!!! Thank you so much, this card is great!

Post by: fancybutch on September 29, 2012 02:16:39 PM

Dang it, the bat had glow in the dark eyes, AugustBell.  They must have fallen off during shipping, despite the E6000!

This is going to be an amazing gallery. With lots and lots of pictures ;) I received my first card today (well, cards, but more on a that in a bit), from Skrabadoo! (I got two, since Skrabadoo was a bit nervous about making them. You shouldn´t have worried, I love them! October couldn't have started in a better way :)) I will try to take pictures today and post them. Thank you so much Skrabadoo!
I hope I can send my cards this week. They will be going a long way from the Netherlands, hopefully they will get to their respective owners in time before Halloween...

Post by: gozer on October 01, 2012 07:11:02 AM
 beautiful gallery so far! You can really tell people loved making these cards!
 Jillybeans - those portraits are wonderful. I especially love the wings on the lady and the cutesy phrases on the creepy cards.
 Witmert - cute pumpkin. I always think the sewn cards are so adorable.
 FabricFriend - LOVE the house card. It's my favorite so far. Wonderful job!
 MissingWillow - The Vlad and Witches Brew cards are great. I love the way you embellished them. I am so jealous. No matter what I just can't achieve that effect and you make it look so effortless and natural. They are great!

Received two amazing cards from LaChapa today!  What a great way to kick off Oct 1!!!
Fantastic detail on that owl, I am in awe of your skills!  But Mr Pumpkinhead cracks me up!!!  I love them both!!  My 5yr old has asked if he can have Mr Pumpkinhead.  I told him he has to make his own ATCs before he can ask for mine  ;)

I've received my first set of three...Actually, Skrabadoo sent 2 cards. She was worried and I have NO CLUE why!!!. LOL Fantastic cards and now *I* feel worried.

Post by: La Chapa on October 01, 2012 05:39:02 PM
I received from two people today!  AND I got two ATCs from each one!

I got these wonderful cards and extras from Witchhippie:

I really love the hand drawn jack o' lantern!  The background looks like snow, and I love the concept of a wintery Halloween!  Also, you can't see this in the picture, but it has some subtle glittery accents.

Thanks Witchhippie!

AND, I got these as well as this cute hand made card from NH822!

Aren't they great?!  I'm in love with the elegant little moon one.

Thanks NH822!

I feel so lucky!

So here are my cards that I got from Skrabadoo: two skeletonheads in love and a cute ghost that says 'boo' :) They came with a nice card that has witches' legs on it and a matching envelope.


and the back:


I LOVE them, thank you so much!

First I'll discuss the skeleton one.
You can't really see it in this picture, but the skeleton heads have a raised texture and the background has small green stripes. My camera wasn't able to pick up the glitter in the heart very well, unfortunately. I like the simplicity of this card, it's very elegant and cute.

The ghost card also has raised elements: the word 'boo' is mounted on some kind of foam piece and the eyes and mouth of the ghost is slightly raised. This card has lots of layers and design elements going on. I love the border you stuck over the ghost, and the fact that you outlined the ghost with orange :) Yet again my camera couldn't pick up the glitter and glow of the letters, you'll have to take my word for it that this card sparkles.

I hope this experience will leave you with a desire to make much, much more cards Skrabadoo. Thank you, october has started great :)

I haven't really commented on the other cards in this gallery. Will do so now ;) I like the fact that there's so much diversity: fabric, paint, collage, all kinds of textures, simple or more elaborate... I couldn't pick a favourite even if I tried. This gallery will be amazing :)

Post by: Skrabadoo on October 02, 2012 11:17:23 AM
I received two cards today!!!!  At first I thought they were birthday cards, but this was even better.  ;)

Prepare to be jealous.

My First one was from Jillybeans.  It is titled "Happy Hauntings".  There is so much going on in such a small space.  There is bunting, a witchy lady and its hard to see on the picture, but there is raised clear swirls on the card.  Super cool.  She even sent me some lovely extras so that can continue on the road to the ATC darkside.  Thanks I love it!



My second card is from Fabricfriend.  It is also really amazing.  These is all sorts of background texture (texturific) and colour and painted elements like the house and the tree over everything.  My favourite thing about the card are the little words "night-clatter" at the bottom. Fabricfriend also some some wonderful extras to make ATCs with.  Thanks for this card.   



It's a good thing I've already mailed out or I might have started over after seeing such wonderful works of art.

I received a wonderful card from Gozer!  Plus a copy of her movie monsters ATC set.  I bet you're all jealous!



I can't even describe how neat this card is.  It's 3-D! with actual wire!

WOW - I blinked and so many wonderful art works posted :)

I received a wonderful ATC from pilarfarmer yesterday, but unfortunately our camera has gone walkabout and my phone is dead, so can't post photos at the moment, hopefully tomorrow.

Mine are all wrapped up ready to post - DH is doing post office run tomorrow.

I received from La Chapa yesterday but it's hard to photograph in my dark little apartment.
So here they be from work:



An owl and moon ATC - love the colors and texture on this one.



LOVE this skeleton lady - such a cool idea (and I'm totally stealing it for the next swap!)

Thanks so much!

 Pioneer9 received her card from me a couple days ago and she asked me to post for her.

 I tried to make it look like the zombie had stumbled thru the grass. I hope she liked it!

titles "treats by the creature"

Brilliant stuff in the Gallery so far! I'm always chagrined to see the beautiful simplicity of other people's stuff. I fret over mine for literally months, working it to death until I'm certain I've absolutely ruined it. (Which is why I only sent this morning!) And then I see something like Mr. Pumpkinhead, and I think "Why didn't I just do something simple and cool like that?"

I received from Gozer today. No green flocking - I don't know whether to be flattered or disappointed. Regardless, it's jaw-droppingly awesome; I'm off to take a photo right now.

Here's what I got from the amazing  Gozer today. Did I mention it was amazing? And as if that wasn't enough, she included a set of her Movie Monster cards too. I'm in awe.

Gozer...WOW!!  I just stared at the card you sent Wulf for 10 minutes.  Is it water colour or coptic makers?  The shading is incredible and you fit all that detail onto a tiny ATC.  Really, really amazing job!  Wow!


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: bunny1kenobi on October 03, 2012 07:24:55 PM
Holy crow, gozer!  Is that Janet Leigh (Psycho)?  I hope so, coz it looks just like her!  I have tried and tried to do portraiture, and I just can't seem to pull it off... I bow to your amazing skills!

 hahaha, radmom! Trust me, you will never have enough ATC materials! LOL! I love the little poem on your card. The cat's eyes are hilarious!

 And the Psycho (yes that is meant to be her) card was done in Copic markers. I just got a new set with all these wonderful colors but I always find myself reaching for the safety of my warm gray scale. Sorry there was no flocking Wulf! It took me about 20 minutes to convince myself to spray her. I was certain it would mess it all up but I thought it needed that special touch. I am so glad you liked it! I was nervous sending to you!
 
 NH822, I agree your moon is very elegant. And making an elegant Halloween card is not easy!
 I love the skeletons in love. You did an awesome job of making cards that look like they belong in a set Skraboo.
 Smarrt, I too am all about the candy. LOL! I am on a diet so I could practically smell your card!!! Torture!!!!
 My sister is into owls this year and I have been trying my hand at them. They are not hat easy and you did a beautiful job La Chapa!
 Rosie1981, the little Trick or Treat monster (or treater) is cute. Did you use the Cricut monster cartridge on the other card? I have it but haven't use it yet. I think I will have to pull that out.
 Nooo. Love that monster. I want to hug him and give him TONS of candy! I especially love the background. Amazing job!
 But most of all, FabricFriend, I am so jealous of your house cards. Whenever I think of my ATC's I want them to be more like that but I just don't possess that skill. You have a fan. LOVE them!

 Oh, and one more thing (yep this is going to be a touch longer). I am with Robinpich is thinking we should do this again for Christmas! I think we found your next swap Witchhippie. Or you could do a Fall/Thanksgiving one in between...  just a suggestion! ;)

That’s too funny that you mentioned it. I was thinking of doing a Christmas ATC swap if I can get this swap closed in time. I would love to do a Thanksgiving/Fall ATC swap but I know I will not be finished with this swap in time. This is my first time organizing so I can only do one at a time.  :-\

I was thinking after the Holidays of doing a Fairy tale ATC swap.

On a crafty note: I love all the ATCs. The diversity in styles and materials are awesome!!

I am almost ready to send, but I am not finished yet making Halloween ATC's! Seeing this gallery gives me so much inspiration that I keep making new ATC's. It makes it really hard for me to choose which ones to send out and which ones I want to keep (I also make duplicates of the sendouts for myself). I almost forgot how much fun it is working with paper. I also noticed I improved my skills! When I look back on the first ATC's I ever made (for the Love/Hate ATC swap a few years back) I am a bit ashamed that I dared to send those ones out. I like my cards now much better. (decorating Altoid Tins really helps as well, lol) Hopefully next year will be another round of this swap. The suggestion to organise a christmas-themed one sounds great, but I like Halloween a bit better ;)

 Be prepared. Copics are a very costly road to  travel! I got the pens and a set of markers for Christmas last year and have been collecting penny's ever since! I tell my husband to, "turn off the lights, I need markers!". LOL!

 Witchhippie I love the idea of a Fairy Tale ATC swap. I have been a tad obsessed with fairy tales lately. My favorite ones are Rappaccini's daughter, The Thumb Sucker (Die Geschichte vom Daumenlutscher), and of course Red Riding Hood! I want to do my hallway in Red Riding Hood art. It's a long hall way. I will need help!  ;)

So many more wonderful little cards!  I'm really loving this swap and I have found a new love for ATC's.

Ok, so here are the cards I've recieved so far..mine should be going out this weeknd....silly work stuff gettin all in the way...

From Noooitare

Isn't it the cutest lil monster?!  I sqeee'd myself when I opened it!


and from StickerChick87

It's a ghoulishly great card, simple, yet perfect!  It's also built using a Magic, the Gathering zombie card!


I'm loving the anticipation this swap gives, and I'm not let down when I get the envelopes of goodies either!

I received my very first ATC ever today from Robinpich and I love it, love it, LOVE IT!  I love the texture and the colors and just everything.  Now I've got to think of a nice way to display because these will stay out all year.  Thank you so much Robinpich!

Yikes! What on earth is USPS doing with the mail these days? It's pretty impressive that it got delivered to you at all, let alone undamaged. I guess there was just enough address left.

I'm really loving the stitched fabric cards. And Nooo's monsters, of course. ;)

I hadn't thought about the nerve it must have taken to do the splatter on that lovely Janet Leigh portrait, Gozer. I think I would have hesitated a lot longer than you did... and would probably have done dozens of practice spatters first just to reassure myself. But you needn't have worried - it's perfect.

Here are my lovely atc's in the order they were received.  I am having issues getting craftster to upload my pictures so this group shot is the only one that took. 




First is "Janet" by wittmert  It reads "Janet always knew she was different..."  This is so cute, love how it looks like a portrait. 

Next is a beautiful owl atc by AugustBell  Owls are my absolute favorite!!!

and my Final card I received yesterday was from stickerchic87  The bats and the full moon are 3dimentional and ridiculously cute.  Thank you all!

When I saw this I knew who it was from because I had just gotten mine too. My envelope looked a little rough, but nowhere near as bad as that.  So glad your treasure wasn't damaged.

I received TWO fabulous cards from Oyhana!  I'm having some serious swap anxiety right about now....



Because the bead made it not scan flat, I moved it so that you could see the artwork better, and then scanned again:
LOVE the kicky little sparkly hat!  And I love that she used a little texture and interest with the brad on the leather hatband and the sparkly bead! Super cute!

She also sent me the most adorable haunted house!  It looks like a fairy house to me, not sure why, but hey - I'm sure fairies can have haunted houses, too!  I'm an equal opportunity spooker!  ;)

cross-hatching is something I have yet to make work for me - thanks for sending such a great example! :)

And because I thought the backs of these cards could have been ATC's all by themselves, I thought I'd share them with you, also:


Thank you, Oyhana!  Didn't she do a fabulous job!  I love them!!

Really loving all the creative cards! I love the one with the riddle, totally something I would do, lol.

I hope mine arrive ok, I sent a while ago. One had to go to another country though, so it might take longer.


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: gozer on October 05, 2012 06:42:09 AM
 NH822 I would have a talk with your delivery man! There isn't enough address on that envelope for it to have arrived at your house. Crazy people!
 The sewn cards by Robinpich are wonderful! I would buy a set of those if they were in the store.
 Nooo - Your monsters are the cutest. I love her little dress and the heart coming off her hat. What a little lady.
 I know how frustrating it is when they don't load Whileitsraining. Mine wouldn't load for two days. I resaved and they did...? PS. ADORE your name.
 Wittmert can you repost the card for her? I would really love to see it closer. I think it's a little black cat and I can't get enough of them! I have a witchy cat named Black Dahlia (Dahl for short). It's looks so cute!
 AugustBell your owl is fantstic. I have been sketching them and trying to come up with one I like for my sister and can't. Yours is perfect!
 Stickerchic87 I think theose flying bats are absolutely adorable. And the fact they are 3-D ish makes it even better! Cute!!!
 And I love the idea of the bead Oyaha. I would end up using that as a bookmark (I have a well protected ATC from Mountains and Clouds as my current bookmark). I am going to have to use that joke on my hubby. LOL! Very nice card.

 I am so impressed with this gallery! Everything is so inspiring and cool!

i recieved a card in the mail from Pilar B Farmer maybe a week ago, they were a bright spot in a rough week, but i'm just now getting them posted. the drawing itself is  in pastels of a witch over a cemetary, nice effect

it's hard to photograph, but it was tucked inside a really cute card. the spider is on a small red envelope  that you slide up to get the card out, as if he were crawling out of the card...eek!

Yay, I got my first card(s) today! When I saw the sender was Skrabadoo, I was like "Ooooo I am lucky, these are gonna be good!" I was right! The little bat one came with his wings folded which I think is adorable. My husband is the photographer, though and he likes the wings open because they say Eek, like my username :). The next one is a trick or treater, and the candy is 3D and I couldn't stop touching them, lol. Nice cards, my first ones I have ever received! Thanks Skrabadoo!

I too love everyone's cards.  Since these were the first ATCs I'd ever made, I struggled with what to do.  With each card that gets posted I think why didn't I think of that.  These are so much fun I'm going to have to try everything out before the next time.

I love all the wonderful cards.  I am just so glad that 2 of mine have shown up especially after seeing that envelope and how mangled it was.  I hope the last one (which is going out of the US) shows up intact. 
and what's so bad, I hand delivered those inside the post office, asked the clerk if they needed extra postage since they were a little "fatter" and she said no.  I asked could she manually cancel them so they didn't go thru the machine and she did.............how in the world they got so mangled.  I am just glad I taped the ATC card inside the card.

and the three cards :
"The orange pumpkin is from CDEeeek
The green card is from August Bell
The brown card is from fabricfriend"

are all beautiful and unique, the delicate spiders web on green is beautiful, the orange pumpkin is such a cool effect of drawing, brilliant, and the brown moody card with text is fabulous.

love them all, and agree this is an amazing gallery and so many more to come!

Unfortunately I don't have any internet connection at home since Friday, apparently some cable got smashed, hopefully it gets fixed today. I'm in the local library now ;) I have lots of catching up to do I see. Looking forward to receiving my final two cards.

I love, love, love, love the cards that are popping up in this gallery! So many great ideas. I adore the fabric ones, and the psycho card of course. And Scrabadoo, your set of cards is awesome :D

So I've just gotten caught up in the gallery and it's so fun to scroll through and think, "ooh, I want that one, and that one, and that one!" My faves are the special Janet kitty, and fabricfriend's brown one.

I received two great cards today! They were waiting for me in my mailbox when I got home this evening. Special mail is so nice to come home to :)


This one is from tamalama, a Charlie Brown-themed card with lots of little 3d elements, and she even included a bonus pair of pumpkin earrings! Thank you, Tamalama!


And this one is from aluracelest, and it's on the back of a Magic the Gathering card  ;D Very cool. It's got a lot of shimmer to it, and the skelly and boo banner are 3d. Thanks so much!

 Hey everyone! I got these cards earlier this week and time was just not on my side as far as posting.
 I love them!
 First up is from Jennleahlynn. She sent me a very beautiful pumpkin patch. It is absolutely amazing. Wonderfully shaded. I love it. It's very appropriate for all of Fall.


 Next is from the ever talented Wulf. He sent me this clever little card. I love the way it looks vintage-ish.

 And open the door and...

 I think the skeleton looks a little shocked too!
 Thank you so much! I love them both!!!!!

I'm surprised at how 3-D that door looks in the photo!

Unfortunately my third card, which really was 3-D (a pop-up), got put in the mail without my taking a photo first, and pioneer9, who received it, isn't able to take a photo to post. So we'll have to imagine it.

I received this most amazing woodburned Frank from coocoosnest!  It's on the thinest piece of wood I have ever seen and I am completely in awe.  This is just so fantastic, I am so in love, and need to figure out a way where I can have it displayed all year.  Thank you so much!!

I got my second card yesterday from Toralune. I love my little jack-o-lantern spider. The picture doesn't show the glitter very well but there is a glittered spider web in the background and the yellow of his face is sparkly too.  Thank you Toralune, he will have a good home here with me!

Wulf I love your cards, very beautiful.

The drawn pumpkins are gorgeous as well.

And seriously?  that woodburned card is insane awesomeness, perhaps the coolest atc I have ever seen!

what a fabulous atc swap and so many cards.

Where on earth did you find the thin and ATC size wood, coocoosnest? It is awesome work you don't Frankenstein's Monster.

I received my last ATC today.  This one is from Radmom.  It is called "Drac's Palace".  The card is watercolour paper and all the images are stamped.  There are also 4 little gems, one in each corner.  I love the colour of this card and the layering of the stamps, especially the batty moon.  Thanks to our wonderful moderators who organized this super fun swap!




I'm sad that I'm done this swap.  :(  Maybe I'll have to join the November ATC swap now that I have the ATC bug...

Whew!  Had to catch up with 7 pages of posts!  I am in awe of the amazing cards on here.

Today I received from Jennden


this pic doesnt do it justice but there is a fine glitter covering the card and I love how delicate the spider webs look!  Thanks for a great swap!

Wow, the Frankenstein's Monster by coocoosnest is fantastic! I tried woodburning myself and I find it very difficult. You have awesome skills :)
I have one more card to receive. I wonder when my recipients will get my cards...

Sorry for the crap photography but the spiderweb is metallic.

Oh, and it's from Jennden - Thanks!

Post by: coocoosnest on October 12, 2012 05:20:33 PM
Thank you all for your comments on my cards. It's the first time I ever tried to burn on such thin wood.  Actually the first one I worked on ended up with a big hole burned all the way through it. ;D

Where on earth did you find the thin and ATC size wood, coocoosnest? It is awesome work you don't Frankenstein's Monster.

Radmom, I got a bag full of assorted  pieces of Balsa wood at Hobby Lobby. There were a lot of thin sheets that are about 4" x 8" so I can get two ATCs per sheet and still have lots of little scraps to save for other projects.

And now for my last (sigh) card.  I received today from jennden this wonderful little kitty. The colors really pop and there are touches of glitter and shine. And I think it looks really nice displayed against the card she mailed it in with a little kitty cut out.



This has been such a great swap. I love everyone's cards and wish I had each and everyone of them displayed on my wall. Thank you jillybean and Witchhippie!

I received this amazing ATC from coocoosnest. Once again, it was done on a very thin and lightweight piece of wood, and I'm in awe that she was able to get so much detail in this without breaking the whole thing in half! Thank you so much coocoosnest. :D

Yay!  I received 2 great ATCs yesterday.  They are the first Halloween ATCs I've ever gotten so that makes them even better!

First up is this glittery spider on a glittery spider web from whileitisraining.  The web is hard to see in the pic but it looks pretty sweet up close!



And then this cool one from CDEeeek.  I especially love the background!



Thanks for the cards guys!  :-* :-* :-*

I love all the technical variety in the gallery!  So many different mediums, so many gorgeous cards...even my husband has walked by and been floored by some of the cards.  I can't wait till mine are in their new homes, although I'm having some anxiety after an already bad experience with the post office.

Ooh, some super cool cards here. Especially loving the "black witch" card and the wood-burned Frankie - how neat is that?

I'll be back to post 4 more from 2 partners (yep, you read that right!) right after my camera charges. . .

Post by: psyche on October 14, 2012 08:24:45 PM
Okay, here are the four cards I've received so far, from two partners! Hehe. Lucky me.

Ghostie and Jack-O-Lantern with die cuts and sparkle! (sparkle not entirely shown) from mini_mum


Lady Pumpkinhead (my naming, not hers) and Sketched, semi 3-D owl from La Chapa


Thanks to both of you!! They are all lovely additions to my collection. :)

So many cards I can barely keep up!  Holy smokes, woodburned ATCs!?  Dreadlady you better keep that Frankie under lock and key, cuz there's a little voice in my head telling me that he and I were meant to be!  Coocoosnest, all three are quite impressive!  I also love the sparkly spider web one, the embroidered candy corn, the other webby one with spiders, and the skeleton key one.  But really they are all great! LOVE this gallery!

lachapa-i love the owl, those feathers are great.

one the sparkly spider cards that didn't photograph well, sometimes  i get better results if i scan cards into my computer instead of photographing them. you could also try taking a picture near a sunny window with the flash turned off.

everyone really stepped it up on this swap!

Here is a great ATC plus background goodies from Senesis. You can't tell in the photo, but the background has a lovely golden sheen. Plus, it looks like it managed to get mailed to me with no postage! (at least, there is none on the envelope).


Title: Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012
Post by: seneris on October 15, 2012 01:24:44 PM
Hihi, I guess our little witch here put a spell on the stamp and managed to make it disappear, because I made sure the clerk at the local post office put enough stamps on the envelope! Glad it got to you in one piece. Now for the other two...

I got my last two ATCs!  YAY!

From tamalama:

A cute ATC with lots of fun Halloween stuff on it!  She also sent me earrings, too!  Yay!  Thanks!

From SonjaBoo:

A supremely AWESOME ATC!  Is it a bat?  No!  Its Dracula!  Omg, I love it!  And I'm loving the background paper w/ the velvety circles!  How fun!  Thanks!!

Thanks for all the wonderful ATCs, everyone!  This has been an amazingly fun swap!

Alas, the end has come for me too, with my two remaining partners' cards arriving yesterday and today. :( But that means I get to share them with you, which makes me happy.

I got two ATCs from each of them, which is a double-bonus! First, from ghilie:



A Manga-fairy-vampire with a fabulous handbag, and a great composition with spiders, a flower and a tiny 3-D portrait of a vampire. So there's kind of a theme there.

And continuing the theme with these two from fancybutch:




Both wonderfully textured and beautifully simple. I especially love the rich colour on the zombie one. And it turns out fancybutch and I are practically neighbours. Well, we live across the city from each other, but I was on her street only a few weeks ago, so that counts!

Thanks both of you for these great cards. I wish they would just keep coming, but all things must end. :'(

I got my last card in the mail today, from Thunderchild! Really neat cut-out (and the reddish part is super shiny too).



And if you're wondering about the chocolate bar, WELL. I went to my mailbox and was thinking "Hm, what's this medium sized package from the UK? The only thing I'm expecting is ATCs. And what does the tag say it contains? Chocolate?" Yep! My ATC came with a chocolate bar. Mm. I'm eating it now!

Post by: Wulf on October 16, 2012 04:29:30 PM
Okay, fancybutch, I gotta ask about the dot-pattern stamping. In the close-ups it looks a lot like the standard bubble-pack stamping, but really it's much, much tinier. What did you use? I'm guessing it's some grip-textured thing like a silicone oven mitt, but I really don't know. Spill your secrets to your fans!

lol, I got a roll of this material with the holes at DeSerres on the Danforth, really inexpensive, and another role with a mesh of lines, and I am addicted to using these as a random stencil for texturing.

Oh, it's a stencil? I should have realized that from the way the paint built up around the edges. It's great stuff!

My ATC from SonjaBoo



The picture doesn't do this one justice at all. The disco ball is super glittery, and there is an embossed "Howl at the Moon" on the back ground, in clear embossing.

And Plucky1_08



I don't know why my camera made the candy corn blurry... this is the best shot I got of it. The little banner in the corner of it says trick or treat :)

I think I'm hooked on ATCs now. I love everyone cards and I love seeing all the different techniques especially all the layering.  I've tried doing that but can't get it right and don't know what I'm doing wrong.  But you guys are great at it.  And Oyhana, I love your spiderweb. The little scrolls are a really nice touch.

I"ve actually started a folder on my laptop for ATC cards that have been rec'd.  I"m saving the pics as future reference ATCs.   I wouldn't copy anyones card of course, but love to use them as inspiration.
Or to see how a new technique is done.

Post by: seneris on October 22, 2012 09:46:18 AM
Robinpich, I do the same thing! All these cards have been such an inspiration for me. For me this swap is almost over, since today I received my final card :( (I am still very curious to find out who will receive my final card ;)) The good news is, I love it! Here it is, it's from Auntiekar:

I love the tree!!!!!
and here's the clever and very appropriate way in which Auntiekar made sure the card didn't get damaged:

I adore those bats, they sparkle :D

It is definitely one to show off....and sorry about butchering the name....my fingers and camera were having some issues...it's been a crazy month!

I am received my cards this weekend, 1 on Saturday and the other 2 yesterday! They are fab. I have to say I found ATC's quite hard as you're restricted on size, I sat there thinking "oh I could do that" but then realise I didn't have enough room! Lol

Here are my cards:

For those of you that read the "sleeve on it" posts be prepared to start singing again, only a different tune.  ;)
 I got this hilarious card from ghilie a couple days ago. Life has been insane and this was the first time I had to post it up. The card is wonderful. AND she sent me an extra that you may recognize and be uber (oh yeah, I said uber) jealous to see that I got.


Sorry the pictures suck so bad. My husband was called up north due to an emergency with work from the storm and my camera is in his car. I didn't want to wait to post because then Halloween would be over!  :'(
 Thank you so much ghilie. I love the card. Great sense of humor!!!!!

Senility is evidently setting in early for me -- I totally thought I had posted pics in this gallery of the awesome cards I received, and I did not! I am so sorry wonderful partners -- your cards are amazing and I apologize for not getting them in here sooner!

First off, from Rosie1981 -- two adorable cards! I especially love the slimey guy. ;D


Next, from Oyhana -- two gorgeous sparkly ATCs!


And from Radmom, an awesome jack o' lantern!


Thank you ladies for the incredible cards -- and I apologize again for being late in getting these pics up!  :-*

I want to do one but this swap has to be completely done first. It is my first time organizing.  :-\

If someone else would like to organize it, go right ahead!!

Don't feel bad - it just prolongs the fun. It was a great treat today to notice that there'd been new posts in this Gallery. Now I know there'll be at least two more!

 Last night I checked my mail and to my surprise I got the cards that ghilie sent me the first time for this swap!!! She re-sent because I hadn't received but somehow the post office found it. The envelope doesn't have a post mark date and it says "always use zip code" over the stamp, but the zip codes are there?? Not sure what happened but I will send you a card to make up for the fact you had to resend ghilie. I am just so happy that the goblin card wasn't lost!!! I loved those cards since I saw them in the ATC gallery.
Took out the envelope picture in case ghilie didn't want her address out there. Sorry ghilie!
Here are the fun Halloween cards she sent me!

 The little witch is a metal embellishment. She is so cute. I love the spiders too!

 and the goblin card is unharmed!!! Yay!!!

I would edit that photo to take out your's and Ghilie's addresses for privacy reasons.

Finally got me, the ATC's and a camera (unfortunately it's my phone camera as we still can't find the 'proper' one) together along with some time without little fingers around!

First up - from jenleahlynn: the front


which opened out to this wonderful piece:



Next up from pilarfarmer:
A lovely card


But this

ISN'T the ATC- it's just the envelope!!!

THIS is the ATC:



Finally from Dreadlady:

This is a replacement as her first card got lost in the post :(.

Thank you SO much ladies - I love all ATC's, and I'm sorry it's taken so long to post pictures.

Thanks again, J
