LET THE MUSIC BEGIN

This swap is to create three cards that have music script on them. This can be drawn, collage or whatever you like but it must show somewhere on the card. Your cards can be whimsy, serious, comical - the choices are endless and only limited by your imagination. Let's see how creative you can all be. The whole background to your card can be a music score or just a part - it is up to you and how you would like your card to look.

My cards show a vintage look but you can do any look you like as long as it is not dark or rude ;D

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 and neutral feedback will be left if you fail to send in cards and do not communicate. 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. I will also link your first post to this post so that leaving rep and itrader is easy.

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

CHECK LIST BEFORE YOU SEAL YOUR ENVELOPE :
Check to see if you have put in your address return label
Your Postage to cover returns
Your cards...
Ok then seal the envelope..

WHO WANTS TO CREATE SOME MUSIC??

Sophie's Mom, I like the way you've "framed" your images.

Cathy1
03-16-2012, 05:39 PM
Sophies Mum - those are really lovely cards

Subconcious ink, welcome to the party

Sophie's mom
03-16-2012, 06:46 PM
Thanks everyone, for all the lovely comments!

Goatgirl, I'm glad you noticed the frames. I have this contraption dated 1890 I got at an antique show that cuts the scallops.You clamp it to the table top like a vice, then you crank the handle and this little wheel turns and out comes this pretty edge. It was designed for fabric. I got it out the other day and played around with calendar pages. You may be seeing lots of scallops from me!

Here is a pic of the contraption I bordered my cards with. It is actually dated Nov. 2, 1897 and it is called a Hannum Pinking machine.

Cathy1

Perhaps someone can help Karlz on the postage question as to how much postage to put on the envie from USA to me. It is very much cheaper usa to nz than the other way around.

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.

Mariloupatch, Simmo, Sophie's Mom, and Cynthiasillitoe - AWESOME cards!!! I want ALL of them!!! Wonder if I can waylay them on their trip to NZ!!

I'm still having fun with my new block of beeswax and some new tissues and napkins. AND trying out embossing on beeswax (it works fine BTW) so here are my cards for this swap. They will go postal tomorrow Cathy!

Oh and since the theme is music...I've named all these cards after appropriate songs.

Blue and Yellow Bird - Loopless
The Autumn Leaves - Johnny Mercer (most popularly sung by Nat King Cole)
Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle
Days of Wine and Roses - Henry Mancini

Cathy1
03-30-2012, 03:33 PM
Minnkel - great cards - I will have to watch out for you lurking around my mailbox as cards start to arrive LOL. Luckily enough some have already made it safely. :)

Ahhh Western Australia not the state of Washington in the U.S. I think the abbreviation threw us all off as both places are referred to by the letters WA.

My cards went in the mail this morning :)

Cathy1
04-02-2012, 02:51 PM
Karlz, don't worry, your name clearly written on a piece of paper will be OK, I can attach it to the envelope with glue.

Evalila - I'll let you know when they arrive.

NOTE TO ALL: Do not use cellotape/sellotape to hold your cards together. This is hard for me to get off and ruins the card sleeves. If you must use it, please ensure it is low stick !!

VINTAGE LADIES IN HATS



This is an ATC swap with a difference. Not only will you be making three cards on theme but also making a booklet to hold them in.

Your cards and booklet can be drawn, collage or whatever you like. They can be whimsy, serious, comical - the choices are endless and only limited by your imagination. Let's see how creative you can all be.

You will receive three cards and one booklet in return.

I would love to have you all join me.

Connie Powell

You need to only have the image address (the bit between the quotation marks after 'img src=' in the code snippet, starting with http) between your img tags, Connie. If you want to link the thumbnail image, you can use the url tag, and put the url to the bigger image into that tag. Like this:

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5116/7076514895_f0ef87a29b_m.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/61448178@N07/7076514895/)
(Connie's cards, not mine!)

I think you can click "quote" on this message to see how I did; I'm not super with the explaining. :)


I can't think too straight right now...ha ha but will refer back to this later. Thanks a bunch for helping me out! That was so sweet of you.

You're welcome; I'm glad I could help. You've made some really nice cards and it'd be a shame if people couldn't see them.

That was so sweet of you to post Connie's cards - you are right they are too pretty to not be shown off. I must admit I was relieved for Connie that you did the posting because your previous posting on how to post the pics made my brain hurt. haha You must be very computer savvy!

After I swap out all the cards at the end of the swap I will post a picture of all the cards I have as hostess cards. I did this in my last swap and everyone was pleased to know which card I keep and also to admire the creativity of others.

Of course we want you to post pics of the cards you make for this swap as well so everyone gets a chance to oogle at eye candy. We love eye candy.

Cathy1
05-13-2012, 02:13 AM
I have posted a new swap - you are all invited:


THE BIRD IS THE WORD
This swap is to create three cards that have the word BIRD on the cards somewhere. Your cards can be drawn, collage or whatever you like [except digital] but BIRD must show somewhere on the card. Your cards can be whimsy, serious, comical - the choices are endless and only limited by your imagination. Let's see how creative you can all be - it is up to you and how you would like your card to look.

Cathy1
05-14-2012, 03:13 PM

Mine went out (finally) yesterday!

Life's been insane on my end, but they are postal. Hopefully they make it to New Zealand in time! Had to repackage them at the post office, so they are in a small box...and that's the first time I had to fill out a customs form. XD

Cathy1
05-16-2012, 10:49 PM
Flying Phoenix - you do not need a customs form nor put them in a box. Next time - put a stamp on them and drop them in the Post LOL.

Nost people mail to me for around $1.00 with the max about $1.20. I really hope you do did not pay more because of repacking them. Are they extra thick or something that you had to put them in a box. ??

Blanche
05-17-2012, 11:25 PM
I'm hoping mine will show up soon!

No, they caught the "hard" pieces that are attached to the cards as they felt the envelope, and I didn't have a bubble mailer with me, so I had to go for the small box (as I was trying to get them in before the deadline, and didn't have the time to go back home and pick up a mailer. But it seems like they arrived safe and sound. :)

Cathy1
05-22-2012, 03:06 PM
There are still three sets of cards flying their way to me so I will wait a couple of days for them before posting out your returns,

I will post my hostess cards to the thread in a couple of days so you can all see which ones I kept. I have a fantastic amount of Music cards - thank you all for sending them to me. I am truely lucky.

Cathy1
05-24-2012, 06:10 AM
Some of the cards were posted today. My darling husband helped me and he sealed some of the envies before I had time to put my thank yous in. So some of you will have a thank you on the outside of the envie LOL.

I will wait only one more day for the last set of cards to arrive and then I will be posting the other cards.

Cathy1
05-24-2012, 02:40 PM

All the cards are now swapped and in the mail later today.

Such wonderful cards sent in by everyone - I will scan all the hostess cards shortly and put them on the thread so you can admire them and also know which ones I kept for myself. I would have loved to keep the all BTW they were all so nice.

Please don't forget the rep for the cards you receive and itrader for me. :)

Oh you lucky dog!! Those hostess cards are quite a beautiful collection! But then, you deserve it for hosting such a really great and fun swap. Received my returns (wow...faster than I would have expected!) and have left Rocks and on my way to leave an iTrader for the wonderful hostess!!

Cathy1
05-30-2012, 04:19 AM
Yes everyone, one of the lovely things about hostessing is the gorgeous cards you get to keep and it seems I have the best players in my swaps as the cards are fantastic. I think they would make a lovely display in a frame. I am playing with that idea and when I get some time maybe I will see what they look like.

You can leave reps for the people who made your returns by clicking on the "You Rock" button and leaving a message. To leave itrader for me you need to right click on my itrader rating figure and this will take you to my itrader. If you go to the post where I first post the thread you will find everyone's name with a hyperlink. This will save you trolling through the thread looking for your people. Have fun.
