ATC Swap Due Date: Due June 24, 2016
Signup/Withdraw Date: Due June 24, 2016
Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: Any and all mediums and techniques are welcome
Postage Stamp People: Due June 24, 2016



RETURNS MAILED 7/01



* This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

* Create three different cards presenting postage people. You must use a real postage stamp (used or unused) for the head. (They can NOT be photocopied). The way you create the body, is up to you.

* The figures do NOT have to be hand drawn. You can get your bodies from catalogs such as Ikea, or you can go on line and request catalogs from many companies. You can get your bodies from newspaper adds and/or sale flyers, such as Sears, Kohls, Target, WalMart. You can find today's singers and pop stars in magazines such as People, US, and TV Guide. These are often more "action" bodies singing or playing a musical instrument. You can create your bodies from rubber stamps. Bodies can be found images (as long as they are not copyright protected). It is often easier to draw the bodies since they can be "fit" to the stamp, but found images can also be "edited" to "fit" the stamp head.

* ALL mediums and techniques are welcome. Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take a magazine image, cut it into a square, glue it onto some colored paper, and call it done. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

* All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve.
* All cards need to be standard atc size: 2.5” x 3.5”
* ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
* All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper)
* Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
.....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
* Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.
.....Please check both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
* If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

* If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 47 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards, OR additional postage or two "Forever" stamps if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy.

* International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

* I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

* Cards are due to me by June 24, 2016. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. itrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

* A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

* Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have not been in one of my swaps for a while, I’ll PM you with my address when you sign up!

* Above all ~Have fun!!!

Welcome, Brendle.
You can change to six if you want, I return the number of cards you submit, so you don't even have to tell me you have changed from 3/3 to 6/6. I can figure that out when your ATCs arrive.

wah. i don't have any stamps with a single face on it! all kinds of other things.....


The Elvis stamps, and some of the Black Heritage Stamps, are still available at the post office.
The web site for the USPS, as of today, still lists Elvis, Ingrid Bergman, Ray Charles, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Robinson Taylor, Maya Angelou, Richard Allen, and Flannery O'Connor as available. These are all GREAT head stamps.
The older cooking stamp heads (James Beard, Julia Child, Joyce Chen, Edna Lewis and Edward (Felipe) Rojas-Lombardi), and the Johnny Cash head stamp can be ordered from the postal service, although I am not finding any post offices that actually have them on hand.

You can check on the USPS website for stamp stock information.

Perhaps the problem is that I can't seem to locate any faces in my stamps and I'm missing (aka put away for safe keeping) an envie of stamps I received a while back.

I'm still lurking. I'll have to see what the post office has available for me. There's this fabulous little one person office and she has the coolest stamps and the widest selection I've ever seen. I'll tell her what I'm looking for.

Great shares and great ideas Vicki!

Thank you

Vicki Z
04-23-2016, 04:42 PM
It is always wonderful to find someone to help you with finding cool stamps!!:jiggy:

Oddly, I am finding my best stamp sources at the local grocery stores.
Yes, grocery stores, at the Customer Service counter.;)
They have cool stamps, and when I am hunting for particular, popular, stamps, the grocery stores still had the stamps I wanted that the post office had already sold out of.

SunTrade
04-23-2016, 11:35 PM
OMG Those are awesome! We can use animals and clown too??????

I think lately I have been a little burned out. But the swap ain't do yet. Sometimes, something just hits me and I will run with it!

What grocery store? Care to share?


I don't know what grocery stores you have in Texas, but, in Minnesota we have a Lunds store, a Byerlys store, now the companies have combined to a Lunds/Byerlys. They used to be considered an "upscale" grocery store with a fancy deli and they stocked "foreign" items like nutella, although nowadays I can find nutella almost everywhere. :jiggy:

I also find cool stamps at "Coborns", but I don't think those grocery stores are available in Texas.

Check the customer service counter.
Some Grocery, like Cub stores, appear to sell only books of stamps, not individual stamps, but sometimes the books of stamps will feature heads.
Sheets of stamps are sold at some customer service counters, but not all, and Elvis, and the Black Heritage stamps, the cooks stamps, and the music icon stamps, come only in sheets of stamps.

Good luck on your quest in Texas.

I had originally hoped for Postage Stamp PEOPLE, but many of you are having problems, and have requested help.

Besides, my cats are people, just ask any one of them.
And clowns start out as people, or so I am told, unless one is terrified of them, in which case they are monsters, and not people at all.:eek: :unsure: :wideeyed:

SunTrade
04-24-2016, 11:17 PM
LOL My aunt loved cats, and always had Siamese cats. They have such personality, and do own the house!

I have heads people. Sometimes I do not know what to do, but then all of a sudden go to a store or something, and get inspired.

OMG Mcgillis, I would die for that star trek card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vicki Z
04-24-2016, 11:30 PM
Please do NOT Die, or even think about it.
I will make a note about that star trek card.

But, remember, You and your Muse have to get your own cards created.

Suntrade - I'll fight you for the Star Trek card. Will it be paint brushes at 15 feet? I warn you - I have a nasty paint flick with a very strong wrist (too much 10 pin bowling :biglaugh:)

I would be happy with any of the cards shown so far. I didn't think that animals' heads were allowed - I have made lots of them before.

SunTrade

Vicki, I usually find very cool stamps also at my grocery store and that's where I mail the bulk of my packages and letters and swap envies. Unfortunately, they've been rather limited recently. It seems like someone ordered 5,000 wreath global stamps and I don't know how many of another regular price stamp and that's basically all I can get there these days.

I do love my customer service desk folks, though! and that nice lady who runs the other post office all by herself.

Apparently the U.S.P.S. is going to issue a book of 20 stamps in 2016 called "pets". There are two cat heads in the group.

OMG I am not a pet person, except for horses, but those are too cute! (Except for the snake, I hate snakes ....)

LOVE your use of double stamps, and two heads on one stamp.
Those are tricky to make fit, but you seem to have a definite knack for using them.
Thanks so much for posting such an assortment of examples, and such wonderful inspiration.:jiggy:

Have you looked at the new Easter fashions for Mother's Day?
My local sales inserts have some cool pictures showing the entire family in Easter outfits. If you don't subscribe to any periodicals, most of the sales flyers are on line.
Try Sears, Penny, or Kohls for bodies.

I was wondering Vicky, since this is an open media swap, if I can print to atc size a coloring page, and color with copics, and then put my stamp on them.

Let me know, and I will get cracking!

undercover otter, I have watched some youtube videos on that. One person suggests heating up a non-stick frying pan and set them in for a few seconds and the heat will help release the glue from the paper. I haven't tried that, though. Not sure I trust it.

Today I tried the benzeen method (didn't work that great) and I tried some sticker remover. The latter worked but I don't think it did a lot of good to the stamps (I tested on some boring stamps). I've also tried my heat tool and a blow drier. Blow drier only caused me to curse like a sailor, lol. Heat tool did help a bit.



Oh my word. I love all the examples! I've been soaking some stamps I still had to see if I can join in on this delicious swap, but I'm running into a strange issue with the stamps from the USA: they stick way too good! I can't for the life of me, get them to soak up enough water and have them release on their own... any US people out there with tips/tricks?


I do not soak my stamps
I do not put the envy in the freezer
I do not put my stamps in the skillet, non-stick or other wise, but cute video, jfaskdown!!!! Thanks for the tip.

I just start in one corner, and SLOWLY peel the envelope off the stamps (NOT the stamp off the envelope -- it makes a difference.)

This technique works best in humid weather
Maybe it is just Minnesota.....:P


Also laughing at your blow dryer and cursing sailor session.:jimlad:
I want to make sooooo many comments, but since all of them are "slightly" off color, I cannot share......

There are always people looking for stamps, usually of a specific type -- people, animals, boats, flowers, etc.

Just advertise what you have available, and people will come.:twitcy:

In answer to your question, yes, that is fine.
You will find, with this method, that the look of the final ATC will change, so it depends on what you are trying to achieve.

Cutting around the stamp may leave a white edge from the envelope, in addition to the white edge around the stamp itself, which leaves a wide white "frame" around the stamp and thus makes it more difficult to "blend" the stamp head into the body.

But cutting the stamp out also makes the stamp "pop", so it depends on the face on the stamp, and on the body image it is combined with.

It is possible to color over (on top of) the white frame in a color to match the background, and this method can help to blend the body to the head, if that is what you want, and will also work just fine.

Or you can cut out the stamp "close" to the stamp, and cut off the white edge.
You have lots of options. ;0)

Watch your final result
You will find that there is a difference in where the eye is drawn to.

I find that I have to put my US stamps to soak for a couple of days and then I rub the envelope off their back.
I love Canadian stamps - they float off almost immediately (and a few other countries) but more and more are going the 'must stick till death do us part' route. :(
My grandfather was a proper philatelist (went on a number of world tours by selling a few stamps) and taught all his grandchildren to treat stamps with respect. He is long dead but whenever I am in a hurry and try to cut corners I hear his voice reprimanding me and I can't continue.

vicki - I don't know how you are going to bear to trade half the stamps that have been shown in this thread - great returns for all!!

SunTrade
05-04-2016, 02:09 PM
If you soak them in plain water for 10 to 15 minutes, the paper comes right off. Just wait for them to dry.

Marie, I would just use it like that! Unless is so bad. It adds of the charm of it.


Mine are done, but now I have no internet at home. Hopefully I will post a picture Friday.

Sorry, goatgirl, but there was absolutely nothing in my mailbox yesterday,
but I will check again this afternoon.

Mail seems to be sorted (at the post office) later and later every day, so going early to check the mail in my P.O. Box is usually a waste of time, when it is so often empty.

I will let you know as soon as your cards arrive.
Please don't worry.

Mail to the UK sometimes takes "forever", and sometimes travels more quickly across the pond than from state to state within the U.S.

Go back a page for her photo of the stamps.

I think they are awesome.
I found that I could get the Canadian stamps, so I have ordered some.

LOVE your cards.
Can't decide which one I like best, they are all stellar.
I will let you know when they arrive.
Mail from Canada usually takes a bit longer, so don't panic if they take a week (or more) to reach me.
I will let you know as soon as they arrive.

I agree.
It is always so interesting to see how there can be so many different interpretations to one theme.

Lovely cards received from Seascape131 and redlionspride.
Apparently the post office is catching up from the Memorial Day holiday.

Vicki Z

I will watch for your cards, prex79.
There is still plenty of time.

Vicki Z

Three weeks until cards have to be IN MY HANDS.
Don't wait too long to create your ATCs.
Sometimes postage stamp people do not want to cooperate.
And remember to give enough time for mail transit.
A week is good for local, two weeks for International

Mailed mine out a few weeks ago :)

Vicki Z
06-03-2016, 06:25 PM
Thanks for the update Cbzcando.
I will watch for your cards and let you know when they arrive.

mcgillisj, I am surprised your cards are not here yet, since you mailed them out a few weeks ago.
They were not in today's mail, and I usually figure 7-10 days mail transit from Canada.
But, I will watch for them, and let you know when they arrive.

Surprisingly, I've found lately that my envies take several weeks to arrive. Annoying, but true. :(

Vicki Z
06-04-2016, 08:55 AM
That card certainly is AWESOME.
I wish I could take credit for it, but I can't.

She was crated by jfaskdown last month, on 05-07-2016, along with some other spectacular ATCs.
Check out her gallery for more FABULOUS art.
