Artists: mandykaye, BigBangMomma, 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

*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?

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 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.  

SAMPLE SENT OR RECEIVED PM
Quote

STEP 6:
POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
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!

I was the last to claim in August. Here is my list...

I'm from Texas, USA. Sadly the pool has seen its day.  Embarrassed Winter is coming. I realize it is still in the 90s and this may be an overreaction. All of the fluffies are shedding and molting. Let me know if you want feathers.

My list:
sheep
Halloween
Krampus
Mel Brooks
Cher
weave
skate punk
silhouette
layers
topography
crayola

artist's choice
any previous theme

I claim rockingbearranch for TBD ( Halloween)!

1/0/0

Yay! Its been a hot minute (literally!)! I am Mandy from central Michigan (the boring area). Been having lots of mini adventures and sad to see summer wind down. Anyways, trying to get excited for fall and my big 4-0 bday this month... I am open to whatever you feel inspired to make using whatever medium you wish to use! I prefer flat-ish ATCs, but if you want to make something chunkier, that's ok too!

Themes:
Turning 40
camping/campers
mushrooms/toadstools
forest creatures (real or made-up)
Halloween/autumn
cityscapes
landscapes
little houses
Pinterest inspired ( https://www.pinterest.com/mandyshep/ )

I claim Mandykaye for coffee

1/0/0

 
Hi! I'm Sara in Honolulu, HI (USA).
I am happy with all art, so feel free to choose "artist choice," for real.  (However, please don't send any plant, animal, or soil matter, as we have big agricultural restrictions : )



Here are my themes:

-moon on a string

-tarot

-zen gardens

-I dream of jellyfish

-Pierrot Lunaire (or Pulchinella, Petrouchka, etc.)

-Peace (peace sign, or your own interpretation of peace)

-"jumping Jehoshaphat!

-Solstice (summer or winter)

-Prehistoric "structures" (Like Stonehenge, Maeshowe, etc.)

-your local coffee shop

-the green man

-your location

-little colorful birds

-things that grow

-what goes on in your head

-Hawaiian legends /folklore

-sunsets and silhouettes

-mermaids (original, not Disney, please)

-a card with a cutout

-50/50 card ( half or part pre-existing, like a magazine page, you create the rest! )

-altered playing card (with the number/suit showing- just the top left is fine.)
(Please ask for particular number/suit/theme if you want, or feel free to artist's-choice it!)

I claim rockingbearranch for sheep!

1/0/0

Long time no ATC!!! I'm back, and I now live in the Hudson Valley area of upstate NY. Is it really upstate? Who knows! Let the arguments commence. I currently live here with my BF and Cat, and am deliriously happy that autumn has almost arrived. I'm not super into pink "girly" things or religious stuff, but feel free to use swear words or dark humor.

Animal skeletons
Dia de los Muertos-style animals
Unloved creatures
Your favorite festival (e.g. ren faire, harvest fest, garlic fest, or maybe something obscure near your town)
Design your own pirate flag
Autumn
Nightmare Before Christmas
Vultures
Moths
Rude cats
Advice from an animal
Mixed media
