Sounds like fun - these "no sign up" swaps are neat because if you don't get around to doing them, you don't have to say sorry I have to drop out.

mzspurslasso
04-05-2011, 10:38 AM
I love the no sign up swaps as a host. I don't have to track folks down. If the cards aren't here, I don't worry about it. Participation also seems a bit higher for these than the sign up ones I have hosted. Pressure free all the way around! :)

Got to say something so this thread will show up on my CP. This will be fun as I can do cut out animals. Nothing too serious, though I do love the ones that are hand drawn....love, envy, it might be all the same!

ScrapPea
04-28-2011, 12:43 AM
I'm torn with this one. I could do sooooooo many!

@Ronya - I was thinking of using that exact same stamp...! Of course, I still may.

Do I go cute or non-traditional? Expected or different interpretation? Hmmm, I may have to make both groups and decide then. Right now, it's off to bed where I can dream in paw prints. :)

But there;s a big chance i will join as i love those animals!

mzspurslasso
05-02-2011, 04:35 PM

06-05-2011, 02:17 PM
Okay, I have one more card done. I wanted to try out some atc sized scratch boards that I'd bought. They didn't work that well until I started using a pair of scissors instead of the stupid wooden sticks that came with them...So...it isn't quite right. The silver is bumped up on some of it. I mean, it still looks fine, but it's just not what scratch board is supposed to look like, lol. Anyway, let me know if it's okay for the swap.

ScrapPea
06-06-2011, 11:00 AM
OMG, katrinabean86, what an adorable card! If you don't feel it's acceptible for the swap, ooooh, do keep me in mind! :)

I never thought to use that medium for cards. Did you actually buy them in that size or did you cut down a larger sheet?

katrinabean86
06-06-2011, 12:24 PM
Yeah I found them on Blicks' site (I think it's dickblicks.com but I'm not sure. You can google blicks art supply). Unfortunately, they didn't suggest metal tools when I bought them, only the wooden ones for some reason! Scissors work remarkably well, though lol. They're a bit expensive, not too bad, but in a pack, there are only like 30 or something. Really fun to work with, though. The pack has silver and gold together.

Thanks!! :)

mzspurslasso
06-09-2011, 09:46 PM
No problem, Jesimal. I would classify your cards as a whimsical style vs a realistic one. :)

ScrapPea
06-10-2011, 01:02 AM
My cards are posted in my gallery.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=233480

My cards are full of whimsy, but I wouldn't mind a different themed card in return. That would be very cool, a variety, something totally different than my interpretation. Just FYI.
