2  ONGOING ATC SWAP -- August 2018 (Sign-ups open all month) in Craft Swaps by rockingbearranch on: August 01, 2018 11:20:21 AM

Artists: Patraw, curiousfae, rockingbearranch

The Gallery is HERE!

This is a fun swap, with your level of participation determined entirely by you, with a minimum of one card for the month. People of all levels of card making are welcome. Sign ups are open all month. Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.

Artist trading cards can be made by anyone, from any material, with any method. The official card is the size of a rectangular baseball card, 2.5 by 3.5 inches done in a cardstock weight paper. This swap tends to openly interpret what that means. We have seen cards made from nature, sewn, woven, and knitted, pop ups, movables, mini books, stained glass, clay, and even a 4-d dollhouse room. Preferences can be mentioned when you make a claim.


The Swap FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about swapping.
The ATC FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about ATCs.

~~~ Common lingo ~~~

atc: artist trading card.

ac: artist's choice, in claiming the creator chooses any theme but sticks to requests like flat cards only or handdrawn only.

tbd: to be determined, in claiming the artist will pick from the theme list later.

kid card or card made by kiddos: only allowed where the theme list specifically mentions that they would like a kid card. Kid cards are always welcome as extras and should be posted in the gallery.

bulky: are cards that will not fit in a plastic baseball card sleeve

Please send to rockingbearranch with August Ongoing ATC Swap - Join" as the subject. Hint: Some answers are Red.

*Name of swap:  Ongoing ATC Swap - August 2018
*Craftster username:
*Email address:
*Your real name:
*Mailing address including the country (written as it would appear on the envelope):
*Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
*Are you at least 18 years old?
*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?
*Are you a Friend of Craftster?
*Have you met the Participant Conditions?
*Have you bookmarked and posted in the Discussion Thread in the year 2018?
*What is the exact size of an atc?
*Do you have access to a camera or scanner so you can post pictures here of what you receive?
*Are you aware that if a card is lost in the mail, you are required to resend?
*How soon should you post pictures of the cards you receive?
*When sending sent/received messages to the swap organizer, there are four pieces of information that must be included about each swap.  What are they?

Begin claiming when the organizer replies to your questionnaire or the swap appears in your profile in the list of active swaps. Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim. Look at the date on the calendar, it is the date that is directly 2 rows down.

You can make one claim or as many 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. Remember that you must make one claim!

Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this claiming thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list.
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, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

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
*New swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been received, and its new owner has reported it received, the new swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not. You may be considered a new swapper if you have not been swapping or active for over a year.

How to make a claim:
After being approved, make a claim like this! You are only claiming the person who was the last to post, for one card. You are allowed to send whatever extras you desire.

I claim Fabtwinkleper for gargling gargoyles.  

3 claims, 2 glittered, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, religious, or with clowns.

My themes are:
Bunnies in clothes
Bunnies with wings

Never been picked:
Fluffy fluffiness
Obscure obscurity

Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.

Make the card and mail it. PM the organizer and partner when you send or receive a card. (This was in the original rules. I don't actually need the sentcards message if you find it hard to remember. It helps if cards get lost in the mail.)

Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received cards.  

Subject: July Ongoing ATC Swap--Sent

I mailed some cards today!  

DUE July 16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> Yowzaparadeper (dancing theme)

DUE July 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> Wowwieparadesper (some sorta theme)

The most important step!
Posting pictures of received cards is required for this swap. Please post pictures within 3 days or notify your partner that you cannot so they can share their work.

We like to keep things friendly and encouraging. Thank you's and helpful comments about the artwork can be posted in the gallery!

Mountains and Clouds did these great house shaped cards. We've had a canned ham camper but haven't lived the hut life.  Smiley I'm ready for a 10 square foot, million dollar, beach front property with great views.

Mrs.LindsayLoo made this cool apron and tea towel in barkcloth fabrics. The pom pom touch is cute. I realize I should have ironed these before taking pictures but I'm afraid I will have yet another photo posting issue if I wait. She also sent some neat unicorn horn brushes.

Wulf sent this fantastic package a while ago. I finally figured out my photo editor will error if I turn the photo and the aspect ratio changes. So weird. It meant my photos were trapped out there in the internet and wouldn't save where I could put them here. Everything is so fun and inspiring. There are personalized book plates, journal pages and handmade folders for my Franklin, the pens I'd never get myself, much needed. The two headed moose postcard is hilarious. The antique map is so cool. The pantone swatches are exactly my paint colors.  Grin

Ah ha! I figured out how to make the pictures show up.
