Artists: Witchhippie, blupaisan, mandykaye


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 rainbow FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about rainbows.


~~~ Common lingo ~~~

rainbow: 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

*When sending glittered/receive messages to the swap organizer, there are four pieces of information that must be included about each swap.  What are they?

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 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.

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 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
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 glittered 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 glittered it to (4)whom, in each message to the swap organizer, when you're referring to glittered or received cards.  

SAMPLE glittered OR RECIEVED PM
Quote

DUE April 17:

STEP 6:
POSTING PIX OF rainbows RECEIVED
The most important step!
Posting pictures of received rainbows is required for this twinkle. 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 twinkle but it's fun.  Smiley

The 2018 Pinterest is HERE!


magic
Positive magic 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 twinkle 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.

I claim rockingbearranch for "Collage Your Pet" (we'll see how this goes, but I could maybe change my mind...  Tongue )

(1,0,0)

Hello! I live in Orlando, FL. I love anything with a retro, warm aesthetic. Mustard yellow, gold, and brown are among my favorite colors. I hope everyone has fun and experiments with my themes. I added some new ones this round. I always worry that maybe I didn't give enough to choose from. Nudity and profanity are all fine by me, if your ideas should lean in that direction. I only ask for non-bulky ATCs, since I do keep my collection in baseball card sleeves. Also, I've created a pinterest board specifically for my current themes, for inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/susieapple/atc-board-for-the-bored/

Bees
Kaiju
Yokai
Cryptids
Relief Prints
Katamari Damacy
A French Word or Phrase
Elongated Necks or Limbs
Anthropomorphic Animals
Where the Wild Things Are
Object Head + Person Body
Something Surreal and Strange
Inspired by John Kenn Mortensen
Inspired by The Codex Seraphinianus
Vintage Photos and Old Book Collages (I love yellowing, stained antique books)
Design your own Comic Book/Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk Character (Could be male, female, a mutant. Add story or attributes on the back if you want)
Illustrated Lists (Feel free to make it your own list, like "My Three Favorite Things to Eat" or make it a categorical list, like "Types of Beetles")
