Swap Due Date 25th March
Sign Up / withdraw Date –5th March
Number of ATCs - 3 for 3
Number of Players - unlimited
Medium – Open - but no photographs or digital, please ask if you are not sure.

Things that spin Swap
Make 3 cards that feature things that spin and make them spin, you could make it simple with a brad in the middle allowing the item to spin, or some other way to make them move.
Suggestions ;
A vehicle with wheels that spin
A baby pram with wheels that spin
An airplane with spinning propeller
A childs windmill
A windmill
A spinning flower head.
If you feel adventurous maybe you could make a card with something rolling along the card using the penny method.

Now for the boring but important bits.
1. You can make your cards with any medium but please put a little thought into your work.
2. For this swap please do not use stickers as the main picture, small ones as embellishments are fine.
3. No Photographs, and originals only please
4. Please try to keep the cards flat, as I would hate to have your work mangled in the post machine, so no bulky beads or brads etc.
5. If you are using brads then please try to use the flatter sort. You might have to send your cards in a small padded envelope.
5. All cards must have swap and user names on the back and be in plastic sleeves.
6. All cards must be 2.5” x 3.5”

International players- Please send a hidden $1 if you have one, otherwise I will pay postage back.
All participants, please include an address label or slip of paper with your address on it.
I will supply the envelopes for all participants.
UK players – please include a label with loose stamps.
Any not arriving on time, not made with thought, not the right size or not on theme, will be returned, if you are not sure please ask before posting.
Note that I am in the UK, so cards will take a little longer to get to me, so allow plenty of posting time.

In pennance for keeping Duke Dog, I also created Esprsso Rabbit.
His legs move as he runs - he is fully caffinated.:yes::laugh:

LOVE it Vicki, I never thought of that so now I have more ideas running around my head.:confused:

Gerry
01-15-2012, 12:49 PM
The idea of a spinning bow tie or moustache certainly kick started my imagination.:D
In fact, I just created a portrait of the Dapper Duke of Dogdom with his spinning bow tie.
Unfortunately, I LOVE him so much, I am keeping him, so he will not be submitted for this swap.:sad:

I must admit I dont think I would have been able to have let him go either. :yes:

Mine are not as complicated as the ones VIcki is making but they dont need to be hard, just spinning & turning...

They just have pictures glued to a wheel, and the wheel spins and turns.:yes:

Sooooper doooooper spinning cards arrived from VickiZ, THanks for the postage and the extra card, this is going to be a hard decision. :D

How is everyone else doing?

Gerry
01-27-2012, 12:22 PM
Other things that spin or turn is a record/cd, an electric fan, a childs roundabout.
A spinning top or maybe a roulette wheel.
Dont forget to actually make the thing spin..by either a brad or some other means, check out the posts by VIcki Z with her samples in them.

Hi! I have a question what is the "penny method". When I googled it all I got were birth control and marijuana hits, I'm assuming that's not what you mean...

marilou

Oh yes Gerry, once I got started......it was great fun! Thanks for the swap.
And you ladies thanks for your kindness, blushing!

Hi! I have a question what is the "penny method". When I googled it all I got were birth control and marijuana hits, I'm assuming that's not what you mean...

Hi there, the penny method is when you stick a penny to the back of the spinner and it will 'roll' across your card. Here is an instruction video, I am sure there are many more to watch.

Okay, that is really cool! Thanks for linking the video ... I was really lost at what the penny method was and so curious. :yes:
I am going to try making some of these cards . I may be back for this swap!

Gerry
02-01-2012, 03:36 AM
hope you decide to join, its great fun making moving cards once you start. There are a couple of MMH moving card threads as well, I will post the links later if anyone is interested, its great if you are collecting certain themes in moving cards.

Gerry
02-01-2012, 09:00 AM
HEre are the 2 links for the MMH (make me happy) moving card threads. If you have caught the moving atc bug this is a good way to get a fix. :D

That sounds good to me, I have a couple of the rolling cards that were made for me last year and they are really fun to tilt and watch them spin,:D

Vicki Z
02-05-2012, 01:02 PM
I meant to ask,
What is a child's roundabout?
You listed it earlier as something that spins.
We have traffic roundabouts here, but they are not for children, so I must be thinking of the wrong thing.
Is that a British term I am not familiar with?

Gerry
02-05-2012, 02:11 PM
I am sure you have them in the USA probably under a different name. Like boot is trunk and petrol is gas..
They are in playgrounds and children sit or stand on them as they spin around.

Vicki Z

Any questions dont hesitate to ask, and please remember to read the thread rules before posting, so nothing gets missed.
Above all have FUN.:yes:

Still time to join if you want to have a go at a moving atc, can be as simple as you want such as a circle and a flat brad made into a wheel or wheels on a car etc. or take a look at the cards posted for inspiration. Its great fun. and addictive.

I know I posted these links earlier but here are the 2 links for the MMH (make me happy) moving card threads. If you have caught the moving atc bug this is a good way to get a fix.

Easy, Peasy, and the propeller spins.

Ok, I am determined to get my last card finished for this swap, I know I have time as I dont have to send them by post...hehehe Thats the best thing about being in your own swaps..

Gerry
02-15-2012, 03:25 AM
Please would players make sure they read the swap rules, as all hosts have slightly different ones.
Its always best to reread the first post to make sure everything is ok and included before closing your envelope on any swap.
Also please make sure your cards are on theme, I hate to send back cards but for this theme the cards must actually spin.

Thanks to everyone who have sent in spinning cards already, they are great and the returns are going to be amazing.

Gerry
02-17-2012, 05:33 PM

Thanks Vicki, I based it on the Red and Silver BMW we used to have.

pixiecorpse
02-26-2012, 10:54 AM
Wow! That motorbike is sooo cool!!!

I have a question...do you have the brads sticking through all the way to the back or do do you add card backing later?
I use kinda thick paper, but don't think it would be strong enough to last so would have to back with 2 pieces of card if they tuck in... Would it be too bulky....
Have all my pieces for my pirate ship,tractor and a skateboard :D

Gerry
02-26-2012, 11:14 AM
I backed the bike and wheels, with cardboard, then used brads to attache the wheels before it was put on the atc. I attached the bike with very thin decoupage tape, leaving the wheels free to turn. But I think they would still have turned if I had put the bike directly on the atc. Hope this helps.

pixiecorpse
02-26-2012, 11:41 AM
Yes and no lol...my tractor I drew straight onto the paper and the wheels will go on top,I think I might have to tape the ends of the brads to the backing card as they might stab back through the paper...
Thank you for helping :D

Hehe think it was beginners luck, my skateboards wheels are a bit small so don't turn quite as well as I'd hoped...now to my tractor :D

It you spread the brad tines too far, and flatten the brads too flat/tight, it makes it more difficult for things (wheels) to turn.
Try loosening the tines/brad "legs" from the back of the card, and see if your wheels turn more easily.

Think its a bit they were too tight and also there's not much wheel once the brads on hehe, but at least I'm learning something new! :D

Love all your spinning cards Pixiecorpse.
Here is another one of mine, I did have a stamp of a pram but it was too small so ended up drawing it myself.

THe pram wheels I drew with a compass as I didnt have anything the right size to draw around, I just knew there was a reason I kept it for 40 years.:biglaugh:

Just to let everyone know they have 2 weeks to the swap end on the 25th March. :spinny:
If you are outside the UK you need to be posting them in the next few days.
Ask for my address if you havent got it.

I know I posted these links earlier but here are the 2 links for the MMH (make me happy) moving card threads. If you have caught the moving atc bug this is a good way to get a fix.

Cards are all swapped and in their envelopes, they should be in the post tomorrow. Because of the brads I have padded the envelope with a foam sheet to smooth them out.
Hopefully they will all get to you safely.:)

I am so glad you got my windmill, Gwen.
It is identical to the one in the back pasture.
Every time the wind blows, it activates the water pump, which draws water, to fill the watering tank for the goats.

I knew our windmills were different from Dutch windmills, but I did not realize they were different from the ones in the UK.

Oh my goodness, the things one learns on this site!:)
