Layers, Textures, Glazes Swap IV

Welcome to Layers, Textures, Glazes IV - a mixed media swap. This swap is for cards that have mixed media layers, textures, and glazes - layers of paint, papers, textures, stamps, hand-drawn elements, you name it, it goes!!! Any subject or color is appropriate. The cards for the first two versions of this swap have been absolutely stunning so I hope you will join me for round IV.

Swap Details/rules:

1) ALL Participants - please write your real name and userId on the back of all of your cards. Please mail cards in plastic protectors (the flimsy kind is fine).

2) US participants: send a SASE with 42 cents postage (for 3 cards) or 62 cents postage (for 6 cards). Please write your userID on the back of your envelope and whether you have sent 3 or 6 cardes. If you plan on sending a bubble envelope or large envelope instead of a regular-sized envelope, note that shipping rates have changed and you should probably have $1 of postage or so on it.

3) International participants: Please send me an address label. I would appreciate an extra card or some country-specific stamps/empherma since I will be covering your return postage (a little under $1 USD per envelope at our new rates) but this is not necessary. I will have to limit international participants to 20 members b/c of shipping costs.

4) All cards are due IN MY HANDS July 20th. Returns will be mailed promptly after the deadline and late cards will be returned to you or, if I have enough, swapped with other late cards. We have lots of time to complete this swap, so please be on time.

5) You are welcome to send one or two sets of cards. If you are sending an extra set of cards, please send extra stamps to cover the increased shipping (58 cents instead of 41 cents).

6) Please PM me for my address when you are ready to ship . I leave feedback for all cards right before I swap them.

7) IF YOU ARE SENDING IN BULKY CARDS, YOU NEED TO SEND IN EXTRA LOOSE STAMPS TO COVER THEM! I will use these stamps on other envelopes to offset the cost of shipping bulky cards. Thanks! :)

Thanks for considering my swap!

06-22-2008, 05:56 PM
Adriayna - just wondering if my cards made it to you yet. I mailed last week and I'm getting ready to go on vacation and want to make sure they've landed. Thanks!

06-22-2008, 09:37 PM
Lisa, not yet, but I always get a bunch of mail on monday. When did you mail them? My post office is always a bit slow compared to the standard times, I fear :(

06-25-2008, 04:17 PM
KatieV - your wonderful cards are here! Great work, I love the colors! Thank you for the extra card too! :)

vintageglimmers - your cards are here too. What wonderful work! Thank you for the extra card and the extra stamps--both are much appreciated :)

I will be out of town starting today and going to July 6th. I'm pretty sure I won't have internet (I didn't the last time I went there!). I will update the thread when I return. We still have open slots, so feel free to post to join. Feel free to ship cards--the post office is holding all of my mail. Thanks everyone! :)

07-01-2008, 08:20 AM

07-12-2008, 06:01 AM
Mine are finally going postal..........

07-16-2008, 12:25 PM
Dana - I mailed out several things yesterday including the cards for this swap but can't remember if I did a return envelope or not? If not - hold my cards hostage and I will send in extra postage with my abstract cards. Sorry I also forgot to scan them, doh!... Jackie

07-16-2008, 12:46 PM
Ok, I'll let you know when I get it, jazzie :)

07-16-2008, 01:24 PM
I sent mine early last week, have they arrived?

07-16-2008, 01:26 PM
Probably. I have a big stack of mail here and I haven't gotten through it all yet because of the site upgrades and company.

07-16-2008, 08:57 PM
More cards are here! :)

Sallyann - great work! Thanks for the goodies :)

07-16-2008, 09:11 PM
ty- glad they arrived!

07-17-2008, 05:52 PM
My cards went off today! They're in my gallery. Hope they're ok.


07-18-2008, 06:22 PM
Any luck with my cards! I know you are very busy! I'm just getting worry.

07-19-2008, 07:55 AM
I don't have any new envelopes yet. When I do, I will post them! :)

07-19-2008, 08:33 AM
I mailed them on july 7 the same day I posted them and I hand carried to the post office! This is the first time I may loose some cards! Oh well....Thanks!

07-21-2008, 09:03 AM
Oh geez, well, all we can do is hope for the best. Sometimes they take the "long way" of getting here. I had a set for one of my last swaps take 3 weeks -- and it was only from two states away! :(

07-21-2008, 01:09 PM
Seekingforart - our mystery has been solved. I got an "i'm sorry" bag from the post office today. The cards are fine, but the envelope was mangled by some machine at the post office. I have your return address, so it will all work out! :) Yay!

07-21-2008, 01:10 PM
And, I have cards from:

baleau - wow! Execellent work. I love them!
triskele - very cool! And thanks for the extra
Jazzie - yay! What fun cards.
Maxie23 - lovely! And thank you for the extra!
Immi - great work!!!
Rockstargirl - neat cards!!! thanks for the extra as well.
bsvab - excellent work!
teeejay - great job! thanks for the extra. I bet Art & Soul was a blast!

07-21-2008, 01:12 PM
And now, for some updates. I plan on swapping these out this week and having them in the mail by Friday or Saturday morning. If you have cards in transit, I hope they arrive on Thursday so that I can swap them out! :)

07-21-2008, 01:20 PM
I sure hate missing this one - dern it - not enough time in the day.

07-21-2008, 02:20 PM
I know! You were in all 3 previous ones :(.

07-21-2008, 02:52 PM
thanks! I am so happy they made it!

07-21-2008, 04:43 PM
Whoo hoo!! I can't wait to see the returns. Glad you like the cards!

07-23-2008, 12:39 PM
So glad mine got there! AND I can't wait to see what comes back to me - the "previews" have been great!

07-23-2008, 04:41 PM
Are there any outstanding cards? I hope to get these swapped out tonight and then I will hit the post office tomorrow or Friday

07-24-2008, 09:00 AM
Seekingforart--your cards had arrived. I must have put them in the box without marking them off.

I wanted to know that all of the returns have been mailed this morning! I will be leaving feedback for everyone today. Thank you all for a wonderful swap! :)

07-24-2008, 05:14 PM
Here are my cards, by the way! :)


07-24-2008, 05:17 PM
Those are gorgeous. Have you drawn the main designs?

07-24-2008, 05:25 PM
those are beautiful!

07-24-2008, 06:15 PM
Its partially hand drawn and partially a stamp on most of them :).

07-26-2008, 02:10 PM
The mailman just dropped off some beauties for me! :D

Thank you Anne, Rockstargirl, and Seekingforart (so glad they weren't lost!) - all of these are beautiful cards!

Beautiful cards from Elena, KatieV, Triskele, Rockstargirl, Imnis and Bsvab. Thank you Adrianya for hostessing this swap. Off to give i-trader and rep points! Fabulous cards, fun swap! Hope to trade with some of you I haven't "met" before!

07-28-2008, 11:47 PM
I got one of my cards back - don't know if it's just an oops or maybe my cards were late and there weren't enough to trade with? But if anyone else got theirs back and wants to trade - let me know.

Rockstarsgirl, Immi, bsvab, neca84, and Eric Cannon are out of the running -Eric are those eggshells?

07-29-2008, 07:10 AM
Sorry about that, Jazzie. I seem to have mixed up a bit. This is the first time it happened in one of my swaps. I'll blame it on Reuben--he was bugging me nonstop while I was swapping! If you want, I will swap it with one of my hostess gifts.

07-29-2008, 08:49 AM
Many thanks to Dana, for another fab swap.Thank you to the following:
Anne Wilson for a gorgeous little girl on a turquoise background
Jonquil for Charm, which is lovely, great colours
Stormarela for a fab Australian collage
They are all great, thank you, will leave Rep points now

07-29-2008, 08:40 PM
