11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Craft a Tarot Card Swap - SEND 4/12/10 on: March 19, 2010 10:59:47 AM
Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342882.0




I love the tarot. I love to read the tarot (when I find time), I love the symbolism, the art and the mystery of it. I have always wanted, and even tried a few times, to create my own deck and I thought this would be a great way to see that to fruition!

Swap details:

We will be crafting one 4x6 tarot card of your partners choice. Leave the back of the card blank (except for 'artist info').

Lets stick to the Universal Rider-Waite deck for card meanings/symbolism. Not to limit your meanings but there are a million different decks out there and this one is the most well-known/universal of the bunch.

All crafting medias should be fine as long as you can use the card, unless your partner says otherwise. I personally would like to use my deck but who knows you might want to frame yours!


A regular size greeting card envelope should be big enough to fit your card but be sure to put it in between some thicker pieces of card stock or cardboard so that it doesn't get ruined during the shipping process (remember the extra weight may change the shipping price slightly).

Please put your 'artist info' on the back of the card. Twenty years from now we want to know who made such a beautiful card!


some helpful websites to get you in the mood!

12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Design a Tarot Card Swap on: March 07, 2010 09:27:55 PM
swap started! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=341761.0 




Would anyone be interested in a swap where we would design a specific tarot card or cards for each other?


my empress card

I love the tarot. I love to read the tarot (when I find time), I love the symbolism, the art and the mystery of it. I have always wanted, and even tried a few times, to create my own deck and I thought this would be a great way to see that to fruition!

Some random ideas.......

I was thinking that we could start with just the majors (first 22 cards) at first to narrow it down. Also, we should probably stick to one deck for card meanings/symbolism, like the Universal Rider-Waite deck. Not to limit your meanings but there are a million different decks out there and this one is the most well-known/universal of the bunch.

I think all crafting medias would be fine as long as you can use the card, unless your partner says otherwise. I personally would like to use my deck but who knows you might want to frame yours!

We should probably keep it to one size as well, say 4x6?

We could choose which card we would want illustrated or (if you're a 'reader') you could choose for your partner--that would be up to the two of you.

Anyhow, just an idea. Let me know if any of you are interested or have any ideas!

Oh yeah! And you don't need to know the tarot to join. There are hundreds of websites out there with card meanings and such or a partner may be able to help too. I can always lend a hand with meanings as well!

FYI- I have never organized a swap and would be willing but depending on the response I may need a helper!

although my son will no doubt end up in therapy over it, he was, quite frankly, THE cutest three year old Elvis in town!






as you seasoned seamstresses can probably tell, there was no pattern used to make this getup. it was all "make it up as you go"!


and, uh, THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
 
14  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / mattress pad into spongebob and gary on: September 11, 2009 08:12:59 PM


just cut up a mattress pad, spray it yellow and add some felt and you have spongebob!

gary didn't last too long on the dog though. we ended up putting it on a skateboard and dragging it along while we went trick or treating. it was hilarious!
