1  CALL FOR ATC ARTISTS! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by kosmicgirl on: December 10, 2019 12:27:25 PM
Hi everyone! Long time no see - I haven't really been active here for the longest time. Craftster was a big part of my creative developement a few years back (ok. Ten years back....) but I have since stopped visiting. The news of Craftster closing saddens me deeply, and I thought I would use this as a way of maybe connecting with a few of you againb on other platforms.
If any of you are interested, you can find me on:

Instagram: @anna_ungeheuer
Facebook: Anna Ungeheuer
Discord:  https://discord.gg/EGYJ7qM (This is the discord of Illustrated ATCs - a website for ATC trading where I was admin for several years until it also was forced to close a few months back Sad)

These are a sample of the ATCs I have drawn recently. I have stepped away from the mixed media and am only doing original art.

I received a fabulous bird boy from Gozer. He's slightly larger than the card, and it's called "above it all"

Love the shading on him <3

I received a wonderful antlered girl from kvalit, and a beautiful serene geisha from spikefan.  I love them both,  a wonderful addition to my evergrowing collection Smiley

Kwality, I think this is the first time I see a non-monster card from you!

Here are the cards I received this week; an amazing mixed media card from curiousfae,  and a gorgeous steampunk lady from jenleahlynn.Seriously,  you both rock my socks off!
The quote on the left card reads: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  Live the life you've imagined.

The Nox/Lumos card is so clever. Love the design Smiley

I am behind in posting a pic of the card I received from blu earlier this week. She claimed me for "appliances with facial hair" and made a very dapper and distinguished laundry machine. The colours are so delicate - I love it!

sadly, April 1st has been regulated by the German "Lustigkeitsverbotgesetz", and is, as described in paragraph 4.1a, forbidden and punishable with a fine up to, but not over 50.

In other news the zombie unicorn thingie for April is up and running! Go drool and arrrrrgh and eat! Cheesy

*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?:
*When sending sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer, there are four juicy pieces of information that must be included about each ATC.  What are they?
(Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):

*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, and that you have good communication.** 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, as little as 1) 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 pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.


1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in the 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.

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., the number of cards 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 to whom you've sent them.
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)   New Years Baby
2)   Resolutions
3)   Food w/ Faces
4)   Inspiring Quotes
5)   Your Favorite Medium

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 form to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: April ATC swap--Sent or April ATC swap--Received
     Be sure to include the month!
3.Be sure and include the following in each pm to the organizer:
  • (1)"send by" date
  • (2)theme
  • (3)sender
  • (4)receiver

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

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper (yet another fascinating theme)


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

It is OH so important to post pictures of the fab 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 swap (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 swap gallery!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, kosmicgirl.

This thread is specifically for claims only.
