View Full Version : Miniature ATC Movie Poster Swap, Due June 14th.

Miniature ATC Movie Poster swap due June 14, 2008

Swap Due Date - June 14th, 2008
Signup/withdraw by - May 11th, 2008
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants 12 max

This swap is about Movie Posters and the Movies they advertised!

This is my first swap, so hopefully I will cover all the details. If I have left something out please fill free to ask.

For this swap, players will pick their favorite movies (or a movie that evokes its own imagery to a player - Thanks Kat!) and make Miniature ATC Movie Posters of them!

The Miniature ATC Movie Posters can be a recreation of the original movie poster by drawing, painting, using pastels, digital means, etc


The Miniature ATC Movie Poster can be of your unique own design. Maybe you saw a movie and thought, that the poster didnt really capture what the movie was all about - here is your chance to create your own version!

Any medium is welcome. Just do not take a copy of an original poster and shrink it and call it done. You may use elements from a movies original artwork, as long as you alter it in some form.

The Miniature ATC Movie Poster should have 3 basic elements:
1. Movie Title,
2. an actor or actress name from the movie, and
3. artwork. Artwork can be digital, painted, drawn, stamped, or collaged.

The Miniature ATC Movie Poster should 2.5 x 3.5 and fit in a plastic sleeve. No heavy or bulky embellishments. If it can not fit it in a sleeve, it is too big.

Be sure to:
...Put your user name on the back of all your ATCs
...Put your cards in plastic sleeves
...Include Self Addressed Stamped Envelope - be sure to choose an envelope that will easily fit 3 ATCs for return to you.
...Write the Name of the Swap on your envelope
...Sign up or withdrawal by May 11th, 2008

This is my first Swap so I want to keep it to 3 for 3.

Cards are due by June 14, 2008. Cards that arrive after that date will returned to their owner.

When your cards are ready, please send to:

Susan "Bunnie" Ferriola
113 Aspen Street
Yadkinville, NC 27055

If I have left anything out, please feel free to ask!

Oh please count me in. Sounds sooo fun!

04-08-2008, 06:16 PM
YAY! You're in!

04-08-2008, 06:24 PM
Bunnie --

Include me in. Do we have to like the movie... or just the imagery?


04-08-2008, 06:44 PM
Hi Kat,

You are in.. and no I dont suppose you have to like the movie. The whole idea came from me, seeing a poster and then seeing the movie and saying to myself, that has nothing to do with the movie. So Imagery is just fine!

04-08-2008, 08:35 PM
Love movies and love this very original swap idea! Please sign me up for this one.

04-09-2008, 08:59 AM

Hey, Bunnie

Very fun!! Thanks for hosting.

04-21-2008, 05:40 PM
Yay! I can't wait to see them!

04-21-2008, 05:51 PM
Hello I have questions! I made 3 cards today for the swap and then came back to the thread and read these requirements

The Miniature ATC Movie Poster should have 3 basic elements:
1. Movie Title,
2. an actor or actress name from the movie, and
3. artwork. Artwork can be digital, painted, drawn, stamped, or collaged
The films I have chosen have extremely well known logos and I feel by adding the movie name I am eliminating a part of the impact of the image or branding. Also, adding an actor name would clutter up the card.
Can I add this info to the back instead?

04-21-2008, 07:40 PM
Nice cards, loralou!! I did a Simpson's one, also---lol.

04-26-2008, 09:23 AM
I sent my Movie Poster themed atcs yesterday. Hope you like them. You can check them out in my gallery if you like.

04-27-2008, 11:16 AM
Nice ones!

04-27-2008, 10:34 PM
I wish I could join! Too much going on...

04-28-2008, 05:02 PM
Such Great cards Lora!

04-28-2008, 05:03 PM
I received cards from Kat, Lilbad and ScrappyBoy! And they are all so good!!I know everyone is going to be thrilled!

05-05-2008, 09:02 PM
I would love to join this, but I have a quick question. Can we make all the cards alike or do they have to be different?

05-05-2008, 09:38 PM
HI euphoria,

You can join! We have one spot left! And its yours! And as long as you dont print off a reduced copy, yes they can be all the same movie! =D

05-12-2008, 11:52 AM
My Mini Movie posters are on the way to you today. I scanned them but have not put them in my gallery yet. I will do that this evening.

05-15-2008, 07:45 PM
I am sorry I have been quiet of late. I have a pinched nerve in my neck and back and they told me to stay away from the computer. But I am feeling much better now! yay!

AND Let me tell you! All the cards that are coming in are WONDERFUL!

I recieved cards from HeyMaggie and Hoeyj1220, thank you both for the extras!

They are so wonderful! Thank you all for such greaqt work!

05-15-2008, 08:34 PM
Glad you got the cards i sent. I love so many movies that it was really hard to pick which ones to represent. This was a really fun theme to work on. Thanks for thinking of it, Bunnie!

05-17-2008, 02:22 PM
I love movies too! And the different genre of movies - I may have to host another one, for old monster movies, I love them so. As a child I can remember watching them on a Saturday afternoon, if it was too cold or wet to go outside. I am glad you liked the swap!

05-17-2008, 02:23 PM
Monster You cards came today! They are great! Thank you for the extra!

05-19-2008, 12:17 AM

kstyles - Your cards are here! They are so cool! I almost did Splash too!

I ended up doing Labyrinth, Stardust, and The Princeess Bride. I am hoping my son will scan them for me - so I can share them.

06-10-2008, 04:11 PM
Mine mailed out today. Hope they reach you in time, Bunnie. If not, I'll enter them in round two (if you have one).

06-11-2008, 09:52 PM
Sam - your cards made it *squee* They are so awesome! Thank you for the goodies!

06-11-2008, 10:02 PM
Bun, I LOVED the movie Labyrinth! Can you share a pic? :)

06-12-2008, 11:59 AM
Mine are finally done and being mailed today. Three for the swap and one for the host.

06-13-2008, 08:48 AM

I am hoping (i.e. threatening son with bodily harm >:) ) to get my son to scan all the ones I have recieved today and I will have him scan mine too.


I love your cards! Especially the caddyshack one! That is too cute!


06-14-2008, 10:00 PM

I hope my cards arrived by now. I sent some out to someone else a day after I sent out to you and she received that delivery already.

06-15-2008, 01:24 PM
Hi Irish Rose,

I got them! They arrived Friday afternoon, I just didnt have a chance to log in til now. But they are here safe and sound!

My son has not scanned the cards for me; so I will have to ship them out unscanned >=| But I will try to get a photo of Labyrinth with my cell phone.

06-18-2008, 02:20 PM
Hi Everyone,

All the cards came in, and all the cards are zooming their ways to their new homes!

Thank you all again for playing!


06-18-2008, 04:02 PM
Great--can't wait to see them! Thanks!

06-19-2008, 09:40 AM
Mini posters arrived today. Thank you for hosting this interesting swap.

06-20-2008, 04:45 PM
Just got my returns in the mail! I got a wonderful thank you card from our host - The Maltese Falcon, and also Lilbad's Splash, Scrappyboy's The Scarlet Empress, and Kstyles' Closer. Thank you everyone!!:notworthy:

06-20-2008, 04:57 PM
Lilbad, I hit the return button instead of the quote button (I do that alot) and did not get to finish my rep comment to you. I wanted to thank you for your watercolor "Splash" mini movie poster.

06-20-2008, 09:18 PM
They're here, they're here! How wonderful to get an extra card from our gracious swap hostess! And - OMG, too exciting - I got the Labyrinth card! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE!!! Also got Maggie's awesome "Doors" card and Kat's thoroughly intriguing "Pulchritude" - I had not heard of this one, but it looks quite interesting! Thanks so much to each of you for all your wonderful work. These are great!

06-22-2008, 04:51 PM
My movie posters have arrived! Thanks go out to Lilbad for the Simpson Movie; Loralou for Superman Returns; and HeyMaggie for Jaws...and the envelope please? Oh..emm, thought I was hosting the Academy Awards for a moment. I have left an i-Trader for Bunnie and off to do some repping.

P.S. Bunnie - thank you for the gift of the extra card as well.

06-22-2008, 09:22 PM
I hope our host plans on doing a sequel to this swap...hint hint.

06-24-2008, 05:18 PM
I got mine today! Thanks so much for being a great host!
