Due Date: May 25
Sign-up Date: May 5 (or until full)
Withdraw Date: May 5
Number of Cards: 3-3
Number of Participants: 15 + me
Medium: Hand drawn / Hand painted only



HAND DRAWN / HAND PAINTED:
YUMMY PASTRIES

Like a lot of people I'm greedy. So this swap is for ATCs depicting pastries (pastries = cakes, pies, cupcakes, donuts, eclairs, or any baked product called like that in your country). Any kind goes, either typical ones from your country or simply ones you like.

You can depict the same or different pastries on each of your cards, but each card must be unique, no copies or prints please.

Now most important: have fun and be creative!


Guidelines:

- Hand drawn / hand painted ONLY.
- All cards must be standard 3.5” x 2.5” and be sent in individual plastic sleeves if you have them, and if not protect them in some way.
- All your cards must be originals, no copies or prints please, send only your best work.
- All your cards must be flat, NO EMBELLISHMENTS and nothing too bulky.
- Please include at least swap name, name of the pastry shown on the card, username and real name on the back of your cards and write your username and swap name on the back of your mailing envelope.

To keep the swap manageable and affordable, spots are limited to 15. If you need to withdraw do so in timely manner to let someone else the chance to make cards. Also, if you disappear and don't communicate you'll get a neutral iTrader.

When your cards are ready PM me for my address.

Host cards in this theme will be cherished but are not at all required.

Mailing and postage:

I'm in FRANCE. This means your cards can take extra time to reach me (usually about 10 days from the US). Please mail in timely manner. Deadline is on a Friday, cards will be swapped out during the weekend. Late cards will be swapped with other late cards if possible, and if not they'll be returned.

Please include a LARGE label with your address including your country written or printed clearly, do not send envelopes I'll provide them.

POSTAGE:
- Euro countries: please include a well-concealed 1 euro coin.
- Other countries: please include either French postage I've sent you in previous swaps or LOOSE stamps from your country of the same amount you need to send me your cards (this will help me play in swaps hosted in your country).

Itrader/rep points:

I'll leave you iTrader when I receive your cards.

Posting a picture of your cards to the swap thread is completely optional but as we all like to drool over your art you'll get a rep point from me if you do so.

When you receive your returns, remember to leave iTrader for me and rep points for the people you get cards from.

So who's in?

I've made some cards with pastries. I made more than needed but I like to have some back up cards in case of mail disaster. I prefer not to imagine that, but it has happened before that I got torn envelopes, wet mail....

It seems that the post in France is married to the post in Germany. In most of our ATC Swaps in our German Community we send the letters with registered mail only, cause lots ATC letters got lost, destroyed, wet ... whatever you want.

I have to say ... all your Pastries look so tasty and the Croissant remembers me that I want to go back to Paris since years, caus when I had been there 2 times with my secondary school my camera was broken. So I never took any photos of the Tour Eiffel or Notre Dame, so I have no photos that show I had been there.

I can't wait to start with my cards :)

@ Art101
Your cards are also amazing I really love the colors. They look so powerful ... and to be honest I can't choose my favourite ... but maybe the doughnuts

Card number two complete! By the way I have a couple of questions for anyone willing to answer. First what is the "You Rock" for? Second, is it bad form to make a mistake on one side of your ATC, then retry on the other side? (Yes, I messed up alot! lol!)

kwailin777

lea67000
04-12-2012, 06:00 AM
kwailin777:

- The "you rock" button: when you get cards back, you click the "you rock" button on a post in this thread from the players you received cards from. This will give them reputation. Under "my mood" you have green little squares. The more you receive reputation the more you have green squares. If you want to see who gave you reputation points you can check under "Your Control Panel" at the bottom of the page.

- No problem if there are mistakes on the back of the card, you can use a label or a glue a piece of paper on it to write the info on.

Thanks Simmo! I also want to thank all of you for my first swap/trade experience. Everyone is so encouraging and kind. :)

Artistically
04-13-2012, 02:10 PM
I also love to swap here. I have got a lot experiences from our German ATC Community, but I wanted to have an international view. By the way, concerning the background, this (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=295210)is one of the backgrounds I used for my cards. And this (http://artistically-de.deviantart.com/art/KaKAO-Karten-Stamp-289100057) is my newest Version, because the Dodo became my mascot within the last months.

The Rules for the German versions are, that you need to put:
- your artist name/ real name
- number of the card
- in some cases the name of the project (KaKAO-Karten)

If you want you can also mention these facts on the card:
- Title
- Date
- Logo of KaKAO-Karten.de
- A dedicated to ...

So you see being German is always handle with lots rules. About 90 % also cover the back with a new background like good looking paper or something else.

Writing so much about cards I think I wanna make my next card. I think I gonna start this week with my pastries ... not now, cause I am not at home and want to make some more Craft Cards :)

I think I am the first person who received her fantastic letter total :3.

I mentioned all cards, which are totally amazing in my blog (http://kakao-karten.blogspot.de/). It is in German, but maybe Google Translator will help you to understand, if not ... feel free to ask and I will translate.

It had been funny, because also the letter from a craft swap I joined, too arrived today. So it had been funny and amazing that I got 2 such fantastic surprises.

Thanks Lea for such a fantastic swap and I will take care on every single card and present it to everybody, because it is so fantastic to receive cards from around the world :).

Yes first ones to arrive, those that fly over the Atlantic should take a few more days, no worries!
