Hand Drawn/Hand Painted "Stained Glass" Swap, Due June 30th


I love stained glass and thought this would be an interesting topic for an ATC swap. I can sit and stare at stained glass for hours. Most of all, I think about the delicate business of putting stained glass together and have always wanted to learn how to do it. I'm not sure that I have the patience or the steady hand, but I can draw stained glass and have a lot of fun doing it.

So, break out those pencils, pens, markers, etc. and show me your stained glass. It can be just shapes, a stained glass window you admire, one that you'd like in your house, etc. The ideas are endless. I've include some examples of ones that I did.

Only hand drawn/hand painted are welcome. Please send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.


Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points (You Rock!) for the people you received cards from!

There are two ways to leave Rep Points:

1) Simply click on the link that I have created in the list of users in this post. Once their post is up just hit the "You Rock" button and leave your feedback!
2) Click on this link "How To Leave Rep Easily (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9494)" and follow the instructions.

Please PM me for my mailing address when you are ready to mail out your cards if you do not already have my address. If you do have my address, please note that it has changed, so you have to PM me for my address! LOL

ATCs will be sent out within 2 weeks of the swap closing date; June 30th. Late cards will be returned to the original artist(s).

All participants; PLEASE be sure to put your username and Swap Name on the mailing envelope, return envelope, and on all cards and labels. Also, be sure to write clearly on everything!

Cards are due to me by June 30, 2012. Please allow an ample amount of time for your cards to get to me, especially if you are an International participant. iTrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards.

Remember: We all want to be able to know who to give rep points back to. So, it is really important that you do not forget to put the following on the back of your ATCs:

1. Your username
2. Swap name
3. Title
4. Where you're from

An extra ATC in this theme for the host is appreciated, but not at all expected!


U.S. participants, PLEASE include a Self-Addressed-Stamped-Envelope (SASE) LEGAL SIZE Envelope (4 x 9 ) or a mailing label with your address for your returns with the correct amount of postage for returning your cards. Since we are only doing a 3:3 trade the postage should not be more than 0.90 for 3 cards. Remember to put your user name and swap name on the back of your envelopes!

The International participants; Please include a Self-Addressed-Envelope (SAE) LEGAL SIZE envelope (4 x 9 ) with the amount of postage, in US dollars, necessary to return 3 cards to you for your country.

04-29-2012, 11:09 PM

Don't forget that participants have a hyperlink to their first post here in this thread. Just click on their name and it will take you to that first post so you can leave them an "You Rock!". Pink means your cards have been received and an iTrader has been left for you.

Welcomes going out to:

Pixicorpse, I hope you can come play with us. Send me a pm if you can't find any US postage!

04-30-2012, 11:29 AM
Ceejay, welcome! How cool is that about your husband? How long has he been doing stained glass?

04-30-2012, 11:29 AM
Welcome Snowh1t3! I am so happy you joined my swap!

04-30-2012, 01:14 PM
tlsexton0913 ... my husband has been doing stained glass since his son (now 42) broke a stained glass window in a built-in cabinet ... in a rented apartment. He found it cheaper, at the time, to take a class and repair the window himself, than to have it done professionally. Now he is the professional. He has taught me, and we work together ... my talents in drawing ... I can draw custom patterns ... I can also modify existing patterns (often drawn by artists who do not understand the properties of the glass) lines too close or too curved to be well made. Attached is the only window I've actually done from scratch (with his instruction) the pattern was modified by me to add the background, and make the window oval so it could be framed in channel zink (which stablizes the construction, so it doesn't pull apart in the heat of the sun)

04-30-2012, 01:20 PM
Ceejay, I LOVE that raccoon. He is too adorable. You are most talented. I can't wait to see what you come up with for this swap!

04-30-2012, 01:46 PM

I do encaustic, would that be considered HD/HP ?
it is applied by hand, and im thinking i could get some great textures


05-22-2012, 08:52 AM
big toe studio, I'm not sure what encaustic is, but if it falls under hand drawn/hand painted, you are more than welcome to join.

mariloupatch, I received your wonderful cards yesterday. They are even brighter in person. Thank you for the extra.

05-22-2012, 09:04 AM
IMHO, I always think of encaustic as hd/hp. :)

big toe studio
05-22-2012, 11:28 AM
OK, cool I will give it a whirl. I will post it b4 i mail, that way you can see if you think it fits

BTW, encaustic is hot wax applied with a small iron or stylus

05-22-2012, 04:52 PM
OK, cool I will give it a whirl. I will post it b4 i mail, that way you can see if you think it fits

BTW, encaustic is hot wax applied with a small iron or stylus

Sounds exciting, I can't wait to see how they turn out!

05-23-2012, 04:18 PM
Candeelynn, I received your beautiful cards yesterday. Thank you for the extra! :)

05-23-2012, 06:08 PM
I would love to play on this, but I have a question!

At one point I wanted to get into the art of stained glass, and collected several patterns ... is it ok to use those, or do we have to invent one ourselves?

05-24-2012, 12:03 PM
SunTrade, whatever works for you. I don't see why you can't use those if you are drawing them onto ATCs that should be fine.

05-24-2012, 01:12 PM
Awesome Add me up !

OK, here are the 1st 2 encaustic cards.
Im not real thrilled with the yellow/orange==the shapes dont seem too "stained glass-y"

05-25-2012, 11:58 AM
big toe studio, maybe if you colored in around the yellow/orange it would look more like a stained glass.

Roadhousette, I received your cheerful little stained glass cards today. Thank you for the extra.

SunTrade, signing you up! Welcome, I'm so glad you're playing.

05-26-2012, 08:21 PM
Thanks! I have no idea how to do encaustic work ... it intrigues me!

05-26-2012, 10:06 PM
SunTrade, those are amazing.

big toe studio, sorry you had to give up on the orange one. These look cool!

05-26-2012, 10:36 PM

05-26-2012, 10:38 PM

05-27-2012, 12:51 PM

05-27-2012, 02:57 PM

eangelle, signing you up now. Welcome!

05-27-2012, 04:11 PM
Ooh, welcome tracysart, I am excited to see what you come up with! :wideeyed:

05-28-2012, 02:11 AM
Welcome rianna203! I need to know where you're from before I can sign you up!

05-29-2012, 10:48 PM
rianna203, I have signed you up now. Thanks for letting us know where you're from!

I received cards today from DeniseHopson, Butterfly4, and sassy. I left iTraders for all three of you.

05-29-2012, 11:53 PM
Welcome dedwar24! So excited to have you play!

05-30-2012, 01:04 AM
Considering I make stained glass windows, Knicknacks and stepping stones, this is perfect. I have boxes full of patterns - both bought and hand drawn. I had a business doin it for a while before I got married. I have a picture of a stepping stone I made from a prized photo of my Dad's. (I gave it the stone to him as a gift. It was my favorite piece.)
What a wonderful idea! I would love to join!

05-30-2012, 10:12 AM
Welcome Dena. You are now on the list!

05-30-2012, 10:59 AM
My cards will go postal today ...

05-30-2012, 12:05 PM
ceejay, those are amazing! Yay for Kokopelli! Funny story; I had a pair of Sterling Silver Kokopelli earrings that I only wore like twice. Kokopelli is an Indian deity that has to do with birth. I got pregnant wearing the earrings and have never worn them again! LOL

05-30-2012, 12:33 PM
So .... who needs those fertility clinics anyway ... LOL ... cute story.

05-31-2012, 12:07 AM

06-10-2012, 12:07 PM
Anna, I love those poppies. So beautiful.

Just to let you all know I am in San Francisco, CA for some training and that is why I haven't been on here in a few days. I sent out my address to those that have requested it.

Thank you for your patience.

06-10-2012, 04:55 PM
Please add me! I think this is the perfect swap to get me out of this funk. :)

06-13-2012, 01:23 PM
The work here is fantastic!

06-13-2012, 02:37 PM
dedwar24, wow! It's probably obvious and I am incredibly dense, but what was your inspiration for the stained glass cards?

06-13-2012, 04:09 PM
Suze and dedwar! Wow! Awesome cards!!! Love that grey guy! Fantastic!

06-13-2012, 07:41 PM
A variety of things! :) Just a mix of my original characters, art nouveau and the stained glass windows of old cathedrals... Thank you!

Very cool!

06-14-2012, 11:40 AM
:embarrassed: sorry dedwar! I can actually tell she's a woman heaven knows why I wrote guy!

tammy, this swap looks like it will be a hard one to give out returns. all the cards posted are great! i would want to keep all of them! very hard choices indeed! i cant wait to see my returns. good luck and thanks again for hosting. :)

06-18-2012, 01:53 PM
Marcie, I know, right? It is going to be so difficult.

I received amazing cards from Dedwar24, tracysart, and rianna203 over this last week. I've been so burned out from the computer, I didn't post. I am going to leave iTraders now.

The deadline is quickly approaching, so if you haven't gotten your cards in the mail, you might want to think about doing that soon!

06-18-2012, 02:01 PM
Julie, I just saw this post. No worries, good luck with the new house!

Hi, I'm so sorry I have to drop out of this swap. We have found a house and are starting the paperwork, the packing, the cleaning of old house and I just won't be able to finish in time. So sorry.

06-21-2012, 02:39 PM
I received cards today from kasey1229 and sunnysuze! I swear the talent here is amazing! :cool:

06-26-2012, 11:34 PM
ASchaum, I've withdrawn you from this swap. Sorry to see you leave.

I have sent private messages to the remaining players. If I don't hear anything from them I will begin swapping out cards on July 1st. I don't like to wait the extra two weeks, as I feel we've had enough time to put cards together.

06-27-2012, 11:33 AM
I received Brandyscakeart last week and forgot to post it here. :wideeyed: Off to leave iTrader for her!

06-28-2012, 07:45 AM
My cards were mailed out a couple of days ago and should arrive by the deadline.

06-29-2012, 08:48 PM

07-09-2012, 09:08 PM
Cards will be going out tomorrow. It was really difficult to swap out the cards, as everyone did a really great job. I did try to swap like-for-like. I hope you all enjoy your cards!

07-12-2012, 07:27 PM
Yeah Mine are here! What a wonderful swap Tammy! Love my returns!

07-12-2012, 08:30 PM

07-14-2012, 07:01 PM
Hey all! I made a Swap Gallery file for some of the cards in this swap. DO NOT be offended if you do not see your card in it. :no: The largest template they had was for 24 cards and I don't know how to make one for more cards. :wacko:

07-15-2012, 04:43 AM
Where can we view it?

07-15-2012, 01:02 PM
Serikiyo, you can view it in the Swap Gallery (http://www.atcsforall.com/swap267.php).

07-18-2012, 11:56 PM
I got some beautiful cards in last week's mail. (Late last week.) I haven't had a chance get on here to leave reps and traders. TLSexton, thank you for such a fun swap! I received some fabulous cards from rianna203, Roadhousette, and Sassy.

07-19-2012, 02:04 PM
Wow, a flood of cards made it their new homes! Yay! :)

07-21-2012, 12:43 PM
Well, this has NEVER happened to me before. Someone's SASE was returned to me: "No Mail Receptacle, Unable to Forward". Kind of weird. I will be pm'ing the person this has happened to and resend it. :wideeyed:
