Artists: sammylouise40, MissingWillow, craftylittlemonkey

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.

INFO

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

CLAIMING
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 swap 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.

STEP 3:
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.

SAMPLE CLAIMS POST
Quote
I claim FabSwapper for gargling gargoyles.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 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
Bunicorns

Never been picked:
Fluffy fluffiness
Obscure obscurity


STEP 4:
Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.

STEP 5:
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 sent cards 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.  

SAMPLE SENT OR RECIEVED PM
Quote

STEP 6:
POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
The most important step!
Posting pictures of received ATCs 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!

The Gallery is HERE!

Our Pinterest Pinner is curiousfae! Contact her if you would like to be added to the board. Pinteresting is not a mandatory part of the swap but it's fun.  Smiley

Feedback
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you claimed have been received and you have posted pictures of the cards you received. If you are stuck without a space for a swap and are biting your nails waiting, just let me know and I will release you asap.

ANY QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please post them in the Discussion Thread or PM the organizer, rockingbearranch.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

Hi there, I am TeeJay from Canada. Winter is dragging on here, the forecast after a few spring-like days calls for up to 15 cm of snow, YIKES!

EXTRA SPECIAL~You as a trading card (like the Crafsters trading cards swap https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452037.0)

It's been a while since I joined this one so all the themes will be like new to me.
I am happy to receive whatever you feel inspired to make but please note that it is easier for me to store cards that will fit into plastic sleeves (I have some of the slightly larger sleeves to accommodate cards that are a little over-sized or a bit 3D).

I claim blupaisan for birds at an outdoor birdfeeder!
Claims--1/ Sent--0/ Received--0

I'm Jessica, living in good ol' Indiana US of A.

For me, glitter goes nicely on most anything!

I prefer cards that can fit into a trading card sleeve, so please, no 3D or too bulky to fit in a sleeve (bulky that *does* fit in a sleeve is just fine!), and 2.5 x 3.5.
 Smiley  Also, please, no religious, political, or gory (see note at bottom).

Some of these themes may be daunting---but, even if you're not sure of your skills, please feel free to try anything on my list, just for a chance to play with something new!  Smiley  I love anything made with sincerity, and to the best of your ability!  Smiley

*Portraits with personality
*Animals with personality
*Inanimate objects with personality (like, eyes on a toaster, smile on a heart, scissors that are angry)
*"Oy! My head is too big for my body!" (Doesn't have to have the phrase---just illustrate it.)
*People or animals wearing fruit, or fruit themed clothing, or fruit themed anything involving people or animals.
*Still life---with something unexpected hidden in it.
*People at Carnival/People in Masks
*Mythology
*Cute Halloween
*Cute Halloween costumes
*Ghosties
*People with antlers
*Fantasy people
*Realistic fish--particularly trout, or those fish that you would find in Utah's Fish Lake
*Elaborate costumes (People, animals)
*Elves
*Whimsical people
*Grandfather Frost/Sneguruchka/snow kings, queens
*Mermaids
*Nudes---sexual or not, any sexual orientation
*Big eyed adorable cute things
*Googly eyed things.
*Goddesses.
*Illustration of the phrase "twisting midnight" (your interpretation)
*Purple people eater.
*Shoes with fuzzy things in them.
*Gingerbread men/women/people.
*Fairy tales.
*Your favorite swear word (But, make it cool---not just, you know, pencil written swear word on a white card.  That would suck! lol)
*Frogs.
*Cartoon-y things.
*Easter (but not religious, please)
*Steampunk.
*Cupcakes.
*Gloriously rotund and cute fairies.
*Cute penguins.
*ABCs you *wouldn't* find in a children's book (eg., "F for Fornication", "R for Robbery", "S for Spooning")  Please make sure these are portrait orientation.   LETTERS I NEED: E, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, O, U, V, W, Z.
*Cartoony Christmas, especially featuring candy canes!
*Clue characters: I need Professor Plum, Colonel Mustard, Mr. Green, Mrs Peacock, Miss Scarlet, Mrs White.  Add a background room from the game, and a weapon from the game.  Your choice.  Smiley (Portrait orientation on these ones, please.  Smiley  )
*Scribble drawings:  Start from a scribble, and find something interesting!  (Be sure and finish the card off---feel free to erase any scribbles you don't use!)
(Random example of a scribble card, started with a scribble, ending in a weird little dude:
)
*Thumbelina.
*Mushroom houses.
*Things living in shoes.
*A card in a medium you're still experimenting with (what a chance to try something new!  Be it watercolor, pencil, oils, gel pens, mixed media, alcohol markers, what have you!).
*A rehabilitated card: do you have a card you started but never finished?  Try and pick it up again and see what happens *this* time!  (Heck, even take a "before" picture to share with the group of us later, if you want!  Smiley  )


    My tastes in "gore" are very particular, so I prefer to not receive any unless I know what it looks like beforehand and I know I like it. Wink (I have a phobia of zombies, especially. Smiley )
