Swap Due Date: March 8th, 2012.

Number of Cards: 3:3, 6:6, or 9:9.
(If you want to send between 3 and 9 that's fine also!)

(I will pay for ALL International players! So feel free to join!)
Medium: Anything goes. (Mixed Media, Hand Painted, Digital, Collages, etc.)


For all of us who enjoy/love corsets, bows and lace!
Dolling up lovely bodies of all shapes and sizes in girly frilly things! (Your ATC's do NOT have to have all three of the "corsets, bows, and lace", but if you like, you can put them all on your atc. :) )


Making and sending your cards:
1: They need to be received by me before March 8th, 2012.

4: Protect all of your cards separately in plastic sleeves or between thin cardboard.
5: US players- PLEASE SEND A SASE (SELF ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE) with your address written on it in print where it is completely legible / readable.
International players- Please send a large address label with your address written clearly on it.
6: Please send your cards to me before the deadline or I will be forced to send them back to you to be fair to the players who mailed them to me on time.
7: Write your user name & swap name on the back of your cards AND envelopes.
8: Please private message me when your cards are ready to mail for my address.
9: A Host/Hostess card is not required but always appreciated and will be treasured!

Players - when you receive your cards from me for the swap don't forget to leave iTrader rating for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards for.

Please enjoy the swap!

Would something like this be acceptable - its rubber stamped?

01-08-2012, 11:48 AM
Of course it's acceptable, anything that you call art would be allowed as long as effort is put into it and it's something you'd enjoy to get in return. :)

01-08-2012, 12:04 PM
I have all of those things! Actually my husband and I got married Rennaissance style and I did wear a proper bone in corset. I looked fabulous but sitting down and eating weren't really possible. But hey, I can give up comfort and food for a thin waist and bodacious cleavage!
Count me in!

01-08-2012, 12:24 PM
Glad to have you ArtDuJunque. Thank you for joining :)

01-08-2012, 01:24 PM

02-06-2012, 11:29 AM
Hey Onaki, you can take me off of the lurkers list now I'm afraid. Hopefully I'll have the time to get cards done for your Victorian swap.
Fun cards everyone! I like how people are using laces.

02-07-2012, 12:40 AM
Ooooo, kinky :-)

02-09-2012, 12:37 PM

02-20-2012, 10:01 PM

I am too committed to join this swap, but am just getting into steam punk and would love any sites, or resources for images we can use

thanks all
I will be checking back just for the eye candy
love everything posted so far

02-26-2012, 02:07 AM
big toe studio- If you google images you'll find plenty of awesome ones :)
As for a website I don't have any at the moment.

justfourtwoday- Welcome to the swap, theres plenty of room and I'm happy to have you aboard! :D

Anastazia la- Buttons are perfectly fine, the only reason why I mentioned bulky is because multiple people put jagged seashells and spiked gems on it last time and they came to be damaged badly. So as long as the buttons aren't extremely big or too heavy then you can use whatever you wish on your atc's. :)

02-28-2012, 09:11 PM
If you still haven't gotten my address to mail your swap-cards out to me, please private message me. You have about 8-9 days to get your cards to me, so please don't be late.

I received Youngwind1's cards today. <3

03-03-2012, 08:38 PM
Could I play too? I have two cards completed and expect to finish tomorrow.


03-03-2012, 08:44 PM
I'm not accepting anymore players, the signup/withdrawl date was the 1st and I'm sorting cards the 8th, not enough time to get to me. You can join any of my other swaps that have 1-2 weeks left on them :)

03-03-2012, 10:20 PM
I have lost track of the days, too much overtime, I doubt I will make the due date and don't want to put you in the unpleasant position of telling me no, so I will retract my request.
Thanks for the inspiration though!


03-03-2012, 11:23 PM
I didn't think it would be unpleasant saying you went past the deadline, it's not a biggy. :)
Thank you for your interest in wanting to join though! I appreciate you looking at the swap. :yes:

03-04-2012, 06:30 PM
I'm mixing up cards in 4-5 days, so if you haven't gotten your cards mailed out by tomorrow the latest, please let me know so I can withdraw you from the swap, I'm not accepting any late participants or cards if they aren't mailed out by tomorrow.

If I still don't hear back from you, I'll leave a neutral itrader.

03-05-2012, 11:10 AM
Mine are going out today! I completely forgot to scan them before I mailed them though. Sorry about that. Should be with you tomorrow or Wednesday. Thanks for such a fun swap!

03-06-2012, 12:20 AM
Received cards from Anastazia la! <3

03-06-2012, 11:39 AM
I'm going to have to pull out- sorry :(

03-06-2012, 05:06 PM
Aww, its ok, hope to see you next round!

03-09-2012, 01:31 AM
Received cards from Catladybj, Justfourwoday, and Yorokobi! :)
Today was the deadline. Sorting cards tomorrow.
If you've already mailed your cards, please let me know.

03-09-2012, 01:38 AM
Actually the cards are being sorted now, everyone on the list has not responded or hasn't been on since late January. So they've been removed. :)

03-09-2012, 01:40 PM
Yay! Time to stalk the mailman! Already been stalking him actually so it will just be a continuation.

03-09-2012, 08:50 PM
Cards have been mailed at 5am this morning! So they're all flying your way now!

Please leave me itrader with you as the Player and me as the Host as soon as you receive your cards- as well as You Rock! points for everyone you received cards from!

Thank you so much for joining everyone!

03-12-2012, 10:07 PM
I got some beautiful cards in the mail today! Many thanks to TangledStanley, Mikesatc, Mrs.Alderman, and youngwind1 and thanks to Onaki for hosting a fun swap.
