View Full Version : SCREEN GODDESSES ~ Due April 10th

02-04-2012, 02:20 AM
Swap Due Date: April 10th
Withdraw Date: April 1st
Number of Cards: 3
Number of Players: unlimited


This swap is to celebrate the fabulous Screen Goddesses of the past who have graced our big screens and have entertained us so much. I am thinking Marilyn, Greta Garbo, Bette Davies, Vivian Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, Judy Garland, to name a few. They can be depicted in a role they played or as themselves.

You can use any media you like except digital. Please no heavy embellishments or really bulky cards as it seems the mail machines just love to chew these up. And no stickers as the focal point of your card.

Now the small print - PLEASE READ

Please do your best work! Everyone wants a card with effort and creativity put into it as a part of their collection.

Sub-standard cards will be sent back. I like to swap on due date so please ensure your cards arrive in time.

Mailing and Postage
• Include at least your username and swap name on the back of the card, so everyone knows who to give rep points to when your card is received.
• Place each card in a plastic sleeve for mailing.
• Allow yourself enough time to mail your cards by the due date. Late cards will be returned. It takes 7-10 days for cards to reach me.
• Please send a large return mailing label and a discreetly hidden US$2 for postage. I will take care of the return envelopes. Please do not send stamps - I cannot use them as New Zealand is not part of the USA For those of you who do not have access to US$, please PM me for my Paypal details.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from. I will leave you iTrader points when I receive your cards.

An extra ATC on subject is certainly appreciated and cherished but not mandatory.

Check to see if you have put in your address return label
Your Postage to cover returns
Your cards...
Ok then seal the envelope..

hmmmm, sounds very intriguing. I will see if I can get my life in better order before committing (hubby is re-doing front/main hall & stairway of 150yr old house...TOTAL CHAOS). Thanks for the invite Cathy and I'll keep it in mind.

02-04-2012, 10:32 AM
In the process of packing and moving; however will bookmark and see if I can join before the end. thanks Cathy

02-04-2012, 11:17 AM
Just lurking for now - I've got some health issues that I'm dealing with, and I need to pace myself. This sounds very cool, tho, so I will see if I can fit it in. I'll let you know - thanks for the invite! Nadine

02-04-2012, 12:03 PM
Jeez, Cathy, I hate to say 'no', too, but I'm not doing any ATC's for a while. I'm trying my hand at larger formats, altered art, etc. to stretch myself a bit. Thanks for the invite, though. It's really a great subject & I'm sure you'll have a lot of quality cards show up:)

02-04-2012, 01:26 PM
I'm in!

02-04-2012, 02:09 PM

02-10-2012, 12:13 AM
fI would loive to join in!
at the risk of sounding STOOPID, I ask if you would clarify this:
You can use any media you like except digital.
I frequently print images from the web to use, and I am not soure how else to do this. I caannot draw well enuf to draw faces-not if you want to be able to recognize who it is!

02-10-2012, 03:07 AM
No problems Catladybj. No digital means no digitally compiled cards - you can use images printed from the internet or any other place but you can't compile the card 'on line"

I will add your name to the cast list and look forward to what you produce.

02-10-2012, 03:07 PM
Mine are in my gallery...and also on their way to you.

02-10-2012, 06:09 PM

02-14-2012, 03:20 AM

02-20-2012, 01:31 PM
Things have been very quiet here on set - you must be all learning your lines for your screen test. I know there are some very lovely cards being sent in - if you haven't posted them here please do so. We all love eye candy.

02-21-2012, 02:43 AM
Thank you Thwarmp - your lovely Goddesses arrived today. Thank you so much for the extra card - much appreciated.

02-22-2012, 12:07 AM

02-24-2012, 01:06 PM
I really don´t know how can I have missed this one, but luckily I saw CynthiaSillitoe´s cards in the gallery... I love "old" film stars, so definitely want to play, please :)!

And one more thing; I absolutely love all the cards posted here this far :yes:!

02-24-2012, 02:57 PM
You are welcome Pikkis - glad you found us. I am sure I have a starring role for you.

02-24-2012, 10:02 PM
Enotneicna - your marvelous cards have arrived in their own lovely card carrier. (How did you make that). I hope that when these cards are swapped out their new owners take them out of the plastic sleeve and have a look at the inside of the card. They are done as little books and very clever. And did I say there was one for me.......thank you so much and also for the extra postage. Very thoughtful

02-24-2012, 10:42 PM
your marvelous cards have arrived in their own lovely card carrier. (How did you make that).

It was made using an ATC envelope template...in this case make four envelopes without the flap at the top. Make the outside using card stock just a bit larger than the envie on all sides and leave enough for the flap at the top. Use double stick adheasive to attach the envies to inside of the card stock and to the next envie. The closure was made with a circle punch and then attached with a brad and finished with any fiber or ribbon to hold it closed. Very easy to make!!!

02-25-2012, 01:00 AM
How clever is that

02-26-2012, 04:28 PM
This sounds like lots of fun. I'd love to join in!

02-26-2012, 11:51 PM
Great KathyD - we are still looking for leading ladies - I am sure you will get a part.

02-28-2012, 11:58 PM
Did any of you watch the Oscars and see that the guy from New Zealand won the Oscar for his song Man or Muppett. His mother is a very well known dance teacher in Wellington and has probably taught at least one little girl from every family LOL.

The song is great and grows on you the more you hear it.

Doreen Taylor
02-29-2012, 05:54 AM
May I play please? I love the theme. :-)

02-29-2012, 01:28 PM
Of course Doreen, we would love to have you join us.

02-29-2012, 08:14 PM
There are still a few more starring roles left for those of you who would like to audition. Still 5 or so weeks until curtain call.

03-01-2012, 11:52 PM
Any show and tell?????

03-02-2012, 03:14 AM
Well I have had a 'look and see'. Stunning cards arrived today from Hidden Treasure and Schaefme. thank you for the extra cards for my collection and for the effort put into your cards for the swap.

Thank you for your kind comments.

The cards are four layers: 1) card stock 2) printed baby picture 3) Velum (adheared with velum glue sheets) 4) printed picture of the actress and embelishments.

I really enjoyed making them; I'm a big fan of black and white :)

03-24-2012, 05:06 PM
This one sounds fun, add me please!

03-24-2012, 05:56 PM

03-27-2012, 02:51 AM
Three fabulous Scrren Goddesses arrived at my house today demanding they read for a role. Thank you to KathyD

03-27-2012, 01:47 PM
Love the screen goddesses that are being sent in for this swap. Interestingly there are not many, if any, goddesses sent in that are recent additions to this title. I am thinking people such as Dame Judy Dench, Meryl Streep and the like.

03-28-2012, 01:45 PM
I have just listed a new swap which I know will appeal to most of you - it's called WHAT'S THE TIME. All you have to do is create cards that show a time piece on them somewhere. The rest is up to your imagination. If you enjoy being in my swaps and the thread appeals to you, head on over there and join. The link is in my signature to make it easy for you

See you soon.

03-30-2012, 12:10 AM

04-01-2012, 09:17 PM
Yikes! So sorry, I caught a bad cold while on vacay and have been in bed for days. I won't make the overseas deadline, so please drop me.

04-01-2012, 09:35 PM
there are so many gorjes cards here-wish we could trade 6!!!!

04-02-2012, 01:29 AM
thanks for letting me know MelanieS

04-02-2012, 02:38 PM

There are still quite a few Screen Goddesses to arrive at the auditions. Please make sure they are all on their way, their script learnt, make-up and hair done and enough money in their purse for the return journey. The Oscars will be announced on 10 April and those not seated in the theatre on time will have to be sent home.

04-04-2012, 05:08 PM

04-05-2012, 09:06 PM
Lovely cards and extras received from very talented artists:
Dipsydoo and DoreenTaylor - thank you ladies.

Six more goddess entourage to arrive and only a few days until curtain fall.

04-06-2012, 01:04 AM
That should test the Australia & New Zealand Posts to get it here on time.

04-06-2012, 05:40 PM
Only 3 days until curtain fall.

I know some cards are on their way but some of you have not even asked for my address to send the cards. BTW it is far too late to send them now but it would be a great idea if you communicated as I will leave neutral itrader if you fail to send in cards and fail to communicate. Just dropme a quick PM and I will withdraw you.

04-07-2012, 11:47 AM
Sorry, but I just won't be able to participate in this swap. I'm really sad about it, as I had my goddesses all picked out, too! Just not feeling well enough. Maybe if there's another goddess swap in the future and I'm feeling better, I'll be ready for it! Again, really sorry. :no:

04-07-2012, 04:40 PM
No worries S39D - hope you get better soon - it is no fun feeling under the weather - I have been struggling with the flu/cold for the past week and just don't seem to be able to shake it.

Take care and catch you again soon

04-07-2012, 09:32 PM
Even tho I have a couple cards done, I have to withdraw,they would never arrive on time. my mum was in the hosp 3 times in March and I have spent alot of time with her.
sorry-there are some great cards shown!

04-07-2012, 09:38 PM
thanks for letting me know and I hope your mum is on the road to recovery.

Catch you in another swap soon

04-11-2012, 03:19 AM

We all love to know that our cards arrive safely at their new homes so if you haven't already, please leave rep for the players who made the cards and itrader for me. I track receipt of the cards until they arrive so please let us know. They were posted on 14th April so two weeks later they should be arriving.

Thank you to all players in this swap - fantastic cards sent in by you all - it was a pleasure to drool over the eye candy as it arrived and quite sad to see them go.
