Greetings everyone!

I'm quite jealous of all of you on the East Coast getting MY snow!!! Give it back please, I want to go skiing! :)

Off to go scan cards so I have something to trade for! :)

If anyone can tell me where the devil I put my little box of postage stamps for art, I will make a few ATCs with postage stamps. I've looked high and low and in between. I've been hunting for those stamps for weeks actually!
I did find some stamps, but they're smelly stamps! Stink of mildew. Can't use them without a good airing out and there isn't time today.
But! I have been busy with the markers again!
I give you:

The Whole Tree


If anyone wants this tree, please shoot me off a PM.
I'd like to make a few trades today so if the ones I've offered thus far don't float your boat, perhaps you'd take a trip to flickr and check out the 200+ ATCs over there for trade? All ATCs at my flickr are available unless I've forgotten to delete one that did trade. (And sure enough if there is one over there that is no longer available, someone will want it! LOL)

"APCs / recycling some of the holiday packaging or wrapping in your art"

Does that mean the recycled wrapping has to be on the playing card, OR we do both, an APC & a card with the wrap??

Spent ages making these APCs, and I feel proud of them as it is only the second time I have ever attempted to do these. (would like to trade them for other apcs). Love all the arting going on round the world.

Quick question. On APC, do you put the usual info on the back? If so, then can't you make the APC as thick and sturdy as you like? Or are there different rules for the backs of APCs? Never done one before so have no idea.....:nah:

Sometimes, when a playing card is too flimsy, I put a thicker paper on the back side. I've never thought there is a rule which makes this forbidden but I don't know if there is.

At last I had time to work on some atc's. Not the theme's mentioned here, but for some of the swaps I have signed up for. Attached are the pictures for the Stick and Stones painting and the Bookpages background.
Now the question comes, where did I put my notes on the apc's with napkins and beeswax?

GoldenWolf, it seems to work but there is not the size in the address. If you want smaller images, you can add a text "small" or "medium" after the picture number = before the name of the card like this:

Wow! Everyone's been busy! I've uploaded a few more to my gallery. A minute to check PMs and then I've got to get on with the day. One of those times where I just sat down to play for a minute and, next thing I knew, it was two hours later, and I still haven't eaten anything, checked my email, etc. But it was fun!

HotMamaRama
12-27-2010, 02:43 PM
I've never done an APC either - Do you HAVE to show part of the playing card on the front? I see most folks are leaving the Q for Queen and the spade, diamond, or whaterver showing in all the corners. Do you have to do this or can you cover the whole card?

JoyFlower
12-27-2010, 02:55 PM
I'm going to do some APCs today - Trina, I think you'd need to leave some part visible/covered with a transparent medium so that it is obvious that it is a playing card...don't think it would matter which part, but the corners seem to work easily. :) I think one corner would be plenty. Whatever pleases your artistic eye.

the only rule for APCs is that you must leave the suit and number visible in at least one corner.

ill be making more APCs today and hoping for lots of trades.

standnngrace started an APC ad thread for those of us collecting decks to post what themes we collect and what cards we still need.

Thank you, That helps alot! I guess I didn't realize the idea was to try to complete an altered deck of playing cards, Duh.... That makes way more sense now. I thought you were just using the cards for backgrounds. I like the idea of an altered deck of cards, but I don't think this is my fortay, as so far my attempts are pretty lame.
As soon as they dry, I'll scan and you can be the judge.

Okay here are my first 4 from yesterday.

The Monkey one was just for fun. I had the background and border done, but never finished it.
The "Wood Nymph" and "Junior New year" both have postage stamps on them.
and the last one I was just playing around with some mosaic chunks. The "mouth" is a mini circle mirror, with mosaic tile pieces around it. Sorry about the scan - it is too dimentional for the scanner to take a good pic of.

Still waiting for my APCs to dry. Will post later.

Brownies? Who has brownies??

Wow! You all are tearing up those APCs! Nice eye candy! I may have to see if I have a deck of cards the right size. I've never made an APC but there's a first time for everything!

I've been working on a couple of collage cards and another laundry ATC. Used the wrong paper for the laundry card so the colors really aren't as bright as the first one I did earlier today.

If you want one of these please shoot me off a PM! Thanks!

I so need to get some practical things done, but I'm thinking about heading back to the studio. So many ideas running through my head. Besides, in a way, creating art is a form of cleaning because it moves stuff off my desk and onto cards, right? Yeah, I can rationalize with the best of them....especially when I'm well-stocked with chocolate.

Gorgeous creations, everyone!

So I've been working on a "mustache propaganda" ATC series (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366868.0), which honestly did come from my own mind but I just found an extremely similar one created over a year before mine. They're just for giggles; I don't claim them as artwork. But if anyone wants to trade for one of them, most are still available!

There's a goodly handful of APCs in my gallery; I'm hoping to get some more finished asap.

I LOVE the art that´s been posted while I was asleep. Especially the APCs. Unfortunately I could only find playing cards with the wrong format. They´re longer and narrower than ATCs. But I thought about making my own deck for the Project 365 in 2011 :v_spin:

You can still use your playing cards...The Herb Cards I altered ( in my traded gallery) are narrower too, take a look :) You can mount them on atc sized cardstock and you can cut a bit from the length.

I prefer to alter the right size poker cards but sometimes those European cards have lovely images .

My daughter luvloz is down from Queensland for Christmas to New Year - trying to finalise various things for her wedding next year and catching up with ALL the families. When we are not out doing something with her (spent all Monday at the Healesville Sanctuary - sort of a natural zoo only for Australian animals) she spends much of her time hogging my computer.
She is finally in bed (it is after 1am) so I can FINALLY load the cards that I have managed to make.

Hello everyone! Amazing APCs. I discovered that the deck of cards I brought with me was a quarter inch too small in length and width, and I didn't feel like trudging out in the cold to buy another. At least I realized this before I used them for the APC swap though. So I will create some things today instead of getting sidetracked with reading the way I did yesterday.

Greetings from Alaska everyone! Morning here and just catching up on the thread with my morning tea before the rest of the family wakes up. This is my favorite part of the day, when the family are quiet and safe and sound in their beds, I get some peaceful alone time to myself to do as I please. AAAAWWWWWWWW.....


Can I just say that you art peeps are ROCKING those APCs!!!!!
SO many amazing ones being shared here. I wish I had a knack for those, but so far I'm not feeling it.

I didn't get much arting done yesterday, as I ended up spending the rest of the day taking down Christmas stuff (We are trying to sell our house, so I wanted to get everything back in order ASAP) and hauling a huge load of stuff to the thrift store. Now if a buyer would just come along soon, I'd be one happy camper!

I have several PM's to respond to about trades, I promise to get to those soon! Not ignoring anyone, just haven't gotten that far yet.
Off to hopefully go make something arty. Chow for now.

standnngrace, here is how I organize things here.

When I get a trade offer, I put the card in the envelope and write a post-it ticket with a username on it. Then I remember who's address I need to ask later.

If I'm making a custom card, I still put a post-it ticket with a username on it on the table and write also what I should make for that player. Then I can see all the time what is missing and how many trades I'm having.

looks like i have to make some more bull dog cards.... happens every time i use that stamp!

i have stuff in the oven (if you have a gas oven, it is great to dry cards - don't turn it on just stick them in and the heat with dry them nicely!). gonna make dinner and get back to work. i didn't have anything prepped so it is taking some time to get things done! but i should have a couple that are ready to be posted when i get them out of the oven.

everyone is on fire!!

I just fear it's going to suddenly die out without notice, as people complete their decks! (:

Oh yes, I failed to mention that I'm just now getting started for the day. I have a crazy amount of printing to do for a separate project that I spent the full day and night on yesterday. After making a few adjustments to my current batch of APCs I will post them for your help in figuring out what else they need...or maybe someone will want them the way they are, who knows!

12-28-2010, 07:04 PM
i dont think you have to worry about that. im just so thrilled to see all the new APC addicts! sure will make collecting easier and the decks so much more varied! love it!

still trying to get started. scratched the heck out of my eye with my brush while blow drying so im working with one eye right now. wow...it sure makes a difference. just hoping i didnt do any damage. no insurance...no money...means no doctor so i have to keep praying its nothing serious.

10 clubs butterfly
jack spades cat
2 spades butterfly
ace hearts bird - traded
3 spades bird

the birds are stamps i colored in. my hands are a little shaky the last few days so things are a little more ... festive ... than normal.

i did discover that pigment stamp ink doesn't dry well on playing cards. however, it does dry well on modge podges. solution: modge podge cards and then stamp :)

Beeps - your cards are great! StazOn ink is good for slippery surfaces - dries permanent on just about everything. Will stain rubber stamps even with the proper cleaner and it can eat into some of the clear stamps - it's a solvent ink - but I can't live without it.

Note on APC's... I like to make them, but I don't care if I get a full deck or not. I collect depending on the art, not the deck. And if you get one deck, surely you can start another? ;)

I'm diving into APCs tomorrow, as I finally got a deck and learned how to sand it down. I know I'm doing the challenges out of order, but I'm learning and participating at the pace I can handle.

So here is an acrylic piece, and an oil pastel piece that includes a stamped image of a rose.

...I'm diving into APCs tomorrow, as I finally got a deck and learned how to sand it down. I know I'm doing the challenges out of order, but I'm learning and participating at the pace I can handle...


Do they need to be sanded much? Do you wet sand or dry sand? The deck I am using is pretty worn, so there isn't a lot of gloss on them, and the glue seems to have adhered fine without sanding. I would imagine for a newer, glossier, deck, the sanding is more necessary? (I'm new to APCs, so any input is useful!)

Thanks,
Camilla

I didn't get any "art" done in my studio on the 28th, so I will have to play catch-up on the stamping challenge today :)

But I did spend the day being creative, I think. I frequent virtual worlds like Second Life. Yesterday, I created new accounts in InWorldz, and spent the day customizing my avatars by creating their body shapes, and finding them hair, skin, clothing, etc. Amazing how fast the time flies by when you are that engrossed in something! I finished up the second avatar this morning. I've attached pictures of each of them :)

Today, I will be in the art studio working on a card using a stamped image, and a card using layers. Should be fun! Not sure what I will do for layers - maybe some sort of collage. It's hard to fit much on such a small card!

Happy creating, everyone!

only the first is for trade. the other two are for amy and joss, who also wanted the bull dog APC i posted earlier! Hope you like them ladies!

what is this about sanding cards? i've been using glue stick (better than mod pod to get them down) but now i worry they will fall apart!

can we extend the thon into the weekend? i think a lot of us in the US get the weekend off (well, the 1st and whatnot). it would be awesome!

also, maybe it will be the longest thon ever!

I work until the 31st ... and then have a couple days off ... extending the a-thon would be nice.
I haven't really been working on the challenges ... but seeing the response to the APCs has been interesting. Guess it's time to clear out my gallery and do some collaging again. hmmm .

Nice bull dogs Beeps! Love the 5 layers ! I do not know about the glue problem, I am still using my glue sticks, However I did receive an envy of swap cards last week and several had pieces falling off ( it was no problem to glue them back on) I am wondering if maybe the cold weather constructs the glue and loosens it while they are traveling....
I posted 2 oriental ones in my gallery last night and I am burned out on APCs today...I think I will do like Sniisk and get out my box of partially finished cards and see what I can come up with...Check my gallery sometimes, I am too PC illiterate to post pictures here.

Good morning! More fun art!

I'd be up for extending the a-thon, however I'll be out of town and unable to actually post what I create. I wonder if I can take pics and post from my DROID... hmmm

Good morning all. I have decided to just upload my art to my Gallery...it's too hard to go through the thread and mark items that have traded. So keep checking my gallery cuz I'm posting new items every day:)

I need to pick up some sandpaper. I'm using some great double stick tape as adhesive so I'm not worried about that, but the few APCs I've played with so far haven't worked well. The problem is that I'm going for a more vintage look with art, so the unsanded parts of the card seem too glossy. I'm getting lots of inspiration, though, and will eventually get the hang of it....I hope.

Off to create!

Do they need to be sanded much? Do you wet sand or dry sand? The deck I am using is pretty worn, so there isn't a lot of gloss on them, and the glue seems to have adhered fine without sanding. I would imagine for a newer, glossier, deck, the sanding is more necessary? (I'm new to APCs, so any input is useful!)

Thanks,
Camilla

I am brand spanking new to APCs, but I want to apply paint and marker so mine, so the glossy had to go. The deck was only slightly worn (I stole it from my roomate, LOL). I had no sandpaper, but I found an emory board (for filing nails) that gave me a slight sanding and a cool effect. Now the paint and markers look cool on them. Now to come up with a theme...I'm doing some today, so with me luck!!

Hope that helps, from a *total* newbie!

Thanks Cynthia and Phoenix! Duh ! I aso did not like the bright White on my vintage corners, tried markers but they did not stick. After reading your post I used some brillo pads on mine and then swiped in some grey and beige inkpads and am so pleased with the effect.

I'll be around for the weekend Sanna to keep track of things and there are so many here that are frequent a thoners that no question goes unanswered for long! I haven't been able to create as much as I hoped but I'm checking in on the thread frequently :)

We had a bit of an emergency here with fire trucks and all after a carbon monixide detector went off. My hubby wasn't home and I had to get all 4 dogs and my Son out of the house, it was quite the ordeal. That happened on Monday and I feel like I've been running to beat the band ever since! Anyway everything is okay but it took some serious detective work and a few different people out to find and correct the problem.

If I've missed any pms I'm so sorry! I do have work left in my gallery to trade and I believe it's updated.
