Edgar Allan Poe – Due June 9, 2011
Swap Due Date: June 9
Signup/Withdraw Date: June 9
Number of Cards: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of Participants: Unlimited


RETURNS HAVE BEEN MAILED OUT



January 19th marked what would have been the 202nd birthday of Edgar Allan Poe.

Author, poet, literary critic.
Widely known for his morbid, or Gothic works, or his poem, The Raven.

Less widely known for his poem “The Bells”, which when read by an accomplished orator, one can actually hear the sounds that bells can make, and the emotions evoked from that sound.

Come celebrate the man and his art! Create cards of Poe & family, or any of his characters, poems, or stories.
Check out the museum entirely devoted to him, his life and works.
Create something Poe-esque, it’s up to you!


* This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

* All mediums and styles are welcome. All I ask is that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

* If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches,
plus 44 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards,
OR 64 cents postage or two "Forever" stamps if trading 6 cards, or if your cards are extra heavy.
(The 64 cents reflects the increase in postage rates effective last April 17).
Please put the Swap name and your Username on your mailing envelope, return envelope, and on all cards.
And please write clearly on everything!

* International participants, I will cover your postage. Please include a self address BUSINESS SIZE envelope 4 by 9 1/2, or if you do not have this size envelope, include a mailing label with your return address. Please put your username on your mailing envelope, return envelope if sent, and on all cards. And please write clearly on everything!

* Cards are due to me by June 9, 2011. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. itrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

Remember: We all want to be able to know who to give rep points back to. So, do not forget to put your username, swap name, and card title on the back of each card!

An extra ATC in this theme is always greatly appreciated but not expected!

* Thanks for considering this swap! I’ll PM you with my address when you sign up!

* Above all ~Have fun!!!

You may not be aware how versatile Poe was.
He has created books, poems, short stories, and numerous characters .
He has turned a black bird into an icon.
He was a literary critic and inventor of the detective-fiction genre.
If it wasn't for this swap, you may never have realized how versatile Poe was.

In fact, you should sign up, do some research, and make some cards.

Any takers?

I am fascinated at everyone's choice of topics and focus for this swap.:wideeyed:

Three of you (that I know of) picked Masque of the Red Death and four of you depicted the Black Cat.
If I were a betting person, I would have bet more people would have chosen the Raven, and I would have lost my shirt on that gamble. LOL!!!:wacko:

@Lilthamel - Great cards. I never would have thought of the two portraits, but then my drawing hand is not as adept as yours is.

@Charmstress - Beautiful!!

@debs913 - Oh, I adore the casket!! The digital one is sharp!

@RachelMarie - wonderful. The Tell-Tale Heart one makes me think of how creepy I felt reading that story ages ago.

I'm working on mine. Thanks to debs913, I know I can do 6 cards. (missed this at first read.) Gives me lots more options now...heh heh heh.

@Vicki Z - Right back at'cha regarding The Raven. Of course, one of mine will be, so maybe that helps your count...? :)

Vicki Z

No, it is not too late to join.
You don't indicate your location, but you have until June 9th to get your cards to me.
That means 3-4 days if you are mailing in the U.S., and 7-10 days if you are mailing International. Just make your cards, and plan to leave sufficient time for mail transit and still have your cards reach me by June 9th.

Please fill in your Profile so we can learn a little about you.
I have signed you up.

Vicki Z

Thank you for updating your profile.
Since you are in Australia, please send your cards with at least 7-10 days lead time.
Although I often get mail in a week, I don't want your creations to arrive late, so please allow sufficient lead time for mailing.
Thanks! :0)

I spent this afternoon doing these cards and enjoyed it so much. I decided to gesso and paint (gouache) images of Poe -caricatures too. Hope you like them. Thanks for hosting such an interesting swap. Will send them in the next day or two.

Finished my cards for this swap last night. I happened to have a transparency sheet (acetate) of Edgar Allen Poe quotes and stuff, so I was fairly well set up to start with. I've been looking for a way to use some of them, and this was perfect :)

I did more Poe cards - completely avoiding doing a raven! I will mail the cards on Monday. All of my cards are in my gallery...two different sets. With each set I included a brief quote that applies to the card.

Hmm (goes upstairs to check) - the copyright on the sheet is Capacis Inc, but that means nothing to me, so I'm thinking I probably got it from Artchix Studios or possibly Joggles. OK, no, a google or two later, I realise it's from AlphaStamps, under their Hallowe'en collage sheets: http://www.alphastamps.com/CShalloween.html

Hope that helps!

(And that reminds me, I really need to place a new alphastamps order - I am so low on vintage images!!)

Vicki Z
05-15-2011, 06:11 AM
Thanks so much for checking!
I am going to place an order, too.

Does alphastamps give you a free "anything" if you refer someone to their site?
I had one company that would give me a free image for every person I refered to them that placed an order.

It's this book (http://papercutz.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/raven21-211x300.jpg) :) My dad got it for me when I was little, but we got rid of it and at Free Comic Book Day this year, I found it again :) It includes some lesser known (at least to me) ones but it also has the Raven and Annabel Lee. And the pictures are beautiful. They're all in the same style as the cover picture. Very inspiring for cards :)

katrinabean86
05-28-2011, 03:05 AM
Finished! They'll be in the mail tomorrow. I had a little trouble at the beginning, trying to find which stories/poems I was going to base them on, and what to paint, but I like how they turned out. These are taken from The Raven, Dream-Land, Annabel Lee, and the Masque of the Red Death. I forgot I'd read that last story in high school until I read it again online. It's a really good one, if you haven't read it yet. It's about the Plague.

Oh, and I wrote quotes on the back so whoever gets them will know where they came from :)

Mail has been unbelieveably slow from everywhere.

I know the Memorial Day Holiday, with no mail delivery, slowed things down a day, but then it took the post office 4 more days to catch up from the 1 day holiday, so what can I say?

They may be here today. It is too early for me to check, but I will let you know. :0)

That is all the cards I was expecting, as I haven't heard from the other people who originally signed up.
I will start swapping out shortly.

Vicki Z
06-16-2011, 08:31 AM
Cards have been swapped out and will go into the mail today.

Hopefully US participants should start receiving their cards early next week.
International participants, unfortunately, usually have to wait a little longer to get their returns.

Thanks to all of you for some absolutely stellar work. The submissions were AWESOME. I loved the cards you sent in and it was obvious a lot of effort went into creating them! I can't believe all the wonderful, unique, and creative ways many of you depicted the same stories and poems, every card totally different. Thank you!

When your cards arrive, please remember to give iTrader (to me) and "You Rock" rep points (to the players whose cards you receive in your returns). This is a great way to say thank you for the card, and also then everyone knows where their creations ended up.

Thanks again for playing.

I was going to keep your game show card - it was AWESOME - :notworthy:

But, I did get the answer right, so I thought someone else might like to play.
I guess that means you are going to have to wait until that person posts that she received it.:twitcy:

Yes, starrwoode, you missed a good one.
This was an amazing swap, with some awesome cards.

You say you have 3 cards ready.
Please post pictures of your cards into your gallery, and indicate they are available. This was a very popular theme - you should have no trouble doing some personal trades for your cards.

Thank you for your interest - hope to see you in another swap.
