View Full Version : 1on1: Altered Playing Card ATCs

02-21-2008, 08:52 AM
I'm collecting Altered Playing cards, hoping to end up with a full deck [no jokes about my mental state, TYVM :twitcy:]

In exchange, I'll make you an altered playing card, an ATC in a them of your choice, or 6 inchies in a theme of your choice. You can see examples of cards I've done here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mixing-katie/sets/72157603927739226/) and read about the deck I'm altering here. (http://mixing-katie.blogspot.com/2008/02/altered-playing-cards.html)

You can see my collection on Flickr. So far, I have all the Hearts (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mixing-katie/2118827889/) and
Spades (http://flickr.com/photos/mixing-katie/2327897490/).

02-21-2008, 09:03 AM
I would like to make a couple of these. Which one do you need?

02-21-2008, 06:52 PM
Now how did I miss spades, I would make whatever you need, hope to get in on the next set.

02-21-2008, 11:25 PM
I want to finish up spades by the end of next week, then I'll do the next suit. I'll PM each of you when I start the next one.

kysunflower, just what kind of ninja are you??

02-22-2008, 12:24 AM
lol, the extraordianry kind of course, lol

02-24-2008, 03:52 PM
Katie, we agreed on a 2 card swap but the info was on the old site and stupid me forgot to write it down which cards we agreed on. I know it was a 5 I think and..? But what suit and all, doh!

02-24-2008, 10:26 PM
PMed you, Craftyvox.

I started a new swap for altered playing cards -- my very first swap!! You can check it out here. (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1463)

Karen -- I got an idea for something else to add to your card!! So it's gonna be better, but I missed the mailman today. Sorry!!

03-03-2008, 05:58 PM
No problem...I am in no hurry...I took long enough to get your done!!!!

03-04-2008, 01:32 PM
Lovely, thanks, can't wait :)

03-04-2008, 03:30 PM
Katie, do you care about the size of the cards? I have an amazing deck that would be perfect for you, but they are on the small side -- they aren't a perfect 2.5 x 3.5.

03-04-2008, 05:49 PM
I love the skinny cards! :D The deck I'm using isn't quite 2.5 either.

03-04-2008, 08:48 PM
Awesome. Then let me know when you start a new suit, and I would be delighted to make a card or two for you. :)

03-04-2008, 08:50 PM
Great! I think I'll start sometime next week. (Aaaaaaah, Spring Break!!!!) I'll send a PM when I do :cute:

03-04-2008, 09:31 PM
Hi Katie, do you have any use for jokers? I did one the other day. If you are interested, I will scan it and let you see if you want it. I admit it is a little different than the others I saw in your collection. I'm a little wierd!

03-04-2008, 11:27 PM
Oh, yes -- I'd love a joker!! I also love weird!

03-05-2008, 10:56 AM
Here he is Katie. If you want him send me your addie.

03-09-2008, 03:20 PM
All the Spades are here! Thanks everyone! I'll scan them as a group and put up a link later.

I edited the first post to add lists for Diamonds and Clubs. Who wants to trade? Post here and I'll PM you to agree on a mailing date (and on what I'll make you in return).

Despite my meticulous record keeping (ha! :laugh:), I have a few doubles. *Sigh* I guess that means I'll have to collect another deck ;)

03-09-2008, 04:02 PM
May I get in on the King of Clubs?

03-09-2008, 04:52 PM
Of course!! What do you want from me?

03-09-2008, 05:17 PM
Pmed you ;)

03-09-2008, 05:20 PM
I'll take 8 of diamonds, and 10 of clubs please. In return I'd love cards like the ones you made Ria on page 1 please, thank you.

03-09-2008, 06:46 PM
Great! I'll edit the list!

03-09-2008, 08:37 PM
I'll take the 2 of diamonds in exchange for an any altered playing card from you, if that is ok :)

03-09-2008, 09:35 PM
Katie, I'll do the 4 of diamonds andthe 4 of clubs :)

03-09-2008, 11:59 PM
Thanks Elena and KarenM!!

03-10-2008, 01:11 AM
I finished the 3 of clubs for you. It's my first altered card & I hope you like it.

03-10-2008, 02:36 AM
I'll be glad to do a Diamond and a Club... are the 7s still open?

03-10-2008, 09:45 AM
Great card Lynda!!

Yes, 7's are open! I'll put you on the list mrubyjean :D

03-10-2008, 10:17 PM
I'll do the jack of diamonds and the 3 of diamonds.

03-11-2008, 12:15 AM
Great!!! Got you on the list.

03-11-2008, 09:21 AM
Yay! I'm so excited. I have *the* most perfect deck of cards for you.

03-11-2008, 11:43 AM
Ooooh, you've got me curious :yes:

03-11-2008, 04:29 PM
Katie, I am about ready to start working on those cards!:) Once I am finished I'll let you know!

03-11-2008, 05:51 PM
I would like to help also if its ok I would like the 6, 5, and Jack of clubs.

03-11-2008, 07:17 PM
Thanks, Neysa! I'll PM you for details. Got you on the list!

I scanned all the Spades and put them up on Flickr. They look great! You can see them here. (http://flickr.com/photos/mixing-katie/2327897490/)

03-11-2008, 07:53 PM
your deck is turning out lovely!

03-11-2008, 09:10 PM
THanks, I think so too!! :yes:

03-13-2008, 12:40 AM
Okay, KatieV. I'm in. I'll take the 9 of diamonds and 9 of clubs. (Just so I can do one black and one red.) Okay so now is this like from a Bicycle deck or any particular type of playing cards? These will be my first altered playing cards. Woohoo!:jiggy:

03-13-2008, 09:55 AM
Yay! Got you on the list.

You can use any deck of playing cards that you want - even the ones that are not quite 2.5 x 3.5.

03-16-2008, 02:39 AM
Okay KatieV, my altered playing cards are done - it was fun! You can see them at the Flickr space in my signature. I've PM'd you to request your address.:yes:

03-16-2008, 01:02 PM
Oooooh, those are great!! I PM'd you - will get cards out to you tomorrow!

03-19-2008, 12:10 PM
Just finished a few more cards last night. They're a bit different from ones I've done before. Here's a link: http://flickr.com/photos/mixing-katie/2344885351/

03-24-2008, 07:59 PM
I finally was able to work on your cards today. I am only half happy bout them though LOL. First messed up the Ace though.. but since I only have one set of cards I decided to tore the mulberrypaper off and unhooked the eyelets (nasty work) so I could start over. Which I did, only to stamp the second half of the saying UPSIDE DOWN on the card grrr gah!! Ran upstairs cussing at myself till my sweetie told me to relax LOL I felt soo stupid though!

In the end though I decided to explain this mess up like following: All those cards can be used one side and upside down side. So I altered the Ace so that you can look at it from both upside as upside down as well ;-)
The 5 and A kind of make a set btw - I had this set of stamps and embellies I decided of using and the look nice together if I may say so myself.

Maybe I'll find something to add to them still but I think I should let them be now. Will make pics tomorrow so I can show you!

03-24-2008, 09:17 PM
Interesting story, hehehee!! Looking forward to seeing the cards, Esther!

03-24-2008, 10:10 PM
Cards came today from mrubyjean and art4mysanity. Beautiful cards!! I'm going to have to think of something really special to display this wonderful deck!

03-25-2008, 10:41 AM
Interesting story, hehehee!! Looking forward to seeing the cards, Esther!

I guess we all gotte learn our art can never be perfect :)

04-22-2008, 02:16 PM
i't looks like you need one more card to be made the tree of dimonds. i'll make for you if you like :cool:

04-22-2008, 02:51 PM
Great!! I'll PM you!

10-19-2008, 12:27 PM
Wow, it's been a long time since I updated here!! I deleted the lists in the first post -- there were a few trades that never got completed, but cest la vie, right? (however you spell it!! I'm lucky to spell stuff right in English! :laugh:) I'm going to make three cards for myself, and I'll have a whole deck!!

10-19-2008, 04:30 PM
Woooo hooo!! I got them all scanned! Here are the diamonds and the clubs:

If you click on the pics, it will take you to Flickr, where you can see info on who made what! :)

I will eventually collect more of these, cause somehow I ended up with doubles. And with 4 three of clubs!! :wacko:

10-25-2008, 08:07 PM
Hey Katie,
I am back online but lost all my addresses and such - could you please PM me yours so I can finally mail you your cards? They have been sitting in an envelope since March *blushes* waiting to find the way to their new home.. Thankies!!

10-25-2008, 08:14 PM
Sure!! Will send you a PM now :)

10-26-2008, 10:27 PM
When you start you next set Katie PM me I would love to do a few cards from you.... maybe one from each suit or something

10-26-2008, 10:55 PM
Will do! :)

10-30-2008, 10:13 PM
What a neat idea! I'd love to do some for you if you decide to do another set.

10-30-2008, 10:31 PM
Thanks for the offer! I've got to figure out what I have already, then I can start collecting again :) I'll post when I figure it out!

11-03-2008, 10:34 PM
Do you need the 2 jokers?? I'm not sure what you need, but I'd like to make you some cards! :)

11-03-2008, 10:44 PM
I haven't figured out what I need yet -- I keep sorting cards, and then putting them down without making any notes. Then I forget what I sorted, lol :laugh: There is talk of a PIF or MMH for altered playing cards, I might just do my collecting there if it gets going.

11-03-2008, 11:02 PM
Hi! I'd like to make you a card. Gimme a number and suit, and It's yours!

11-05-2008, 09:13 AM
I'm not ready to start collecting these again -- I'll post when I am, or else just trade in the PIF is that happens.
