View Full Version : Wrapping Paper Background Swap, - Due May 27th

03-31-2012, 06:32 PM
Swap Due Date - May 27th, 2012
Signup/withdraw date - May 13th, 2012
Number of Cards - 3 for 3 ONLY
Number of participants - 20


*This is a 3:3 swap ONLY. If you send more than that, I cannot guarantee that you will get an even number back.

*Any medium may be used, provided the background is made of wrapping paper. Please include your username on the back of each card.

*Please take the time to make pieces you are proud of. If you wouldn't want to receive it, neither will someone else!

*PM me when you are ready to mail your cards and I will give you my address. Please include a SASE with your username written on the back side. The username is most important, I cannot stress it enough.

*No hostess card, loose postage or other goodies are required, but will be much appreciated!

*I will cover the postage cost for the first 3 international participants (outside of the USA).

*When you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave an iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from. I will leave itraders once all the cards are in.

*A neutral itrader will be given to anyone who withdraws after the withdraw date. Cards are due in my hands not later than May 27th, 2012. Cards that arrive after the due date will be returned and you will be given a neutral itrader.

*This is my second swap so only 20 participants are allowed. I will update the signup list everyday, so check back to confirm you're in. It's recommended the first couple people on the waiting list should make cards in case of any sudden withdrawals.

Thanks for your participation in my second swap! If you have any questions feel free to PM me or leave a comment here on this thread.

may i play too? please sign me up.

04-23-2012, 09:24 PM
I know many of you have already sent in your cards, but I was thinking it might be nice to include a small sample of what the wrapping paper originally looked like on the back of the card. The ones posted here so far are easy to tell, but since I do abstract painting, its a little hard to tell on some of them what the original paper looked like.
Just a thought for those still working. I still have a little more work to do, but I hope to have them in the mail by next weekend!

Great idea! I promise I'll add in a few samples as well so everyone gets some back. :)

If you do do this, PLEASE WRITE YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK! I just want to make sure I don't accidentally send the same paper back to someone. :embarrassed:

04-25-2012, 05:19 PM
rebecca410's cards are in! I love the envelope! :D

04-26-2012, 03:54 AM
Awesome cards aschrisman!!!

04-26-2012, 12:32 PM
Mine are almost done .... I try to merge your love for animals with my love for Disney, so I hope you will like them! I will post tomorrow!

The only thing that worries me about these cards, is that the wrapping paper is not acid free, so I am guessing that eventually they will turned yellow? Just wondering....

Here are my cards, hope you like them!

04-28-2012, 01:26 PM
Okay ... mine are drying ... will post on Monday.

04-28-2012, 02:55 PM
aschrisman's cards are here!

05-07-2012, 07:56 PM
Yes, SunTrade, I'm terribly sorry. I just went through the box to double check whose cards are here and it seems I missed marking down you and Ceejay. I'm so sorry, I really seemed to drop the ball on that one. Rest assured that they're here and safe. :embarrassed:

05-25-2012, 05:57 PM
Cards in yesterday from Ligilass!

Quick question, I could use some input. What do you say about extending the deadline another week to see if more people will join?

05-25-2012, 06:21 PM
My answer would be it is your swap so you can do what ever you want.

05-25-2012, 07:35 PM
I'm with dsign49 ... anything worth having is worth waiting for ... what's another week?

05-27-2012, 12:30 PM
I don't mind either...its your swap :D

05-27-2012, 04:02 PM
I think I'll give it one more week.

My friend zetaimainya dropped off some cards at my house so we have a few more. If you happen to get her, I don't think you'll be able to give her rep points, she hasn't logged on in forever. :)

06-03-2012, 03:30 PM
Hehe at least that's 1 more :D

06-03-2012, 04:42 PM
Yes, just one! I spoke with her already and she sent her cards out last week. I'm just waiting to get them. As soon as I do I'll swap the cards and send out the returns! :)

06-05-2012, 04:30 PM
Ok, turns out the last person wasn't able to get to do her cards. I'll swap out the cards today and they should be in the mail tomorrow. :)

06-05-2012, 05:12 PM
Oh that's a shame! But yay post! I've been getting art mail withdrawals :D

06-06-2012, 02:14 AM
Alright, so I finished swapping out the cards and have them all packed up ready to go. They'll be in the mailbox in the morning and I'll leave itraders as soon as I wake up tomorrow.

Adventurer, pixiecorpse and miloccpep: my mom will be out and about tomorrow so I'll have her stop by the post office with your cards. :)

06-06-2012, 02:24 AM
Thank you. Looking forward to seeing my returns. Hope your mum will use the 'Freedom' postage stamps.

06-06-2012, 07:24 PM
Just finished leaving itraders, don't forget to leave rep points when you get your cards!

06-09-2012, 10:07 PM
My cards arrived today. I received cards from rianna203, CeeJay, and Rebecca410.
Thanks so much and serikiyo for hosting it.

06-12-2012, 09:31 PM
Adventurer, pixiecorpse and miloccpep, I owe you a huge apology. My Mom wound up setting your cards aside in her huge mess of bills and forgot about them. Ugh! I'm so angry! She does this ALL THE TIME, specially with MY important papers, it's so frustrating! :arghh: Good thing I stamped them so they stand out. Anyway, I yelled at her about it and they should be out this week (for REAL this time).

06-13-2012, 07:56 AM
great returns arrived. left rep and itrader!! Thank you!!

06-19-2012, 04:24 PM

06-19-2012, 06:34 PM
Rocking ColleenT,Ligilass and Adventurer! Thank you for the lovely cards. Itrading Serikiyo thank you for hosting. I otherwise would not have taken out my giftwrappers! LOL!

06-19-2012, 11:25 PM
