Swap Due Date: Oct 11
Sign-up/Withdraw Date: No sign-up – you are added to the list when you ask to join, but I won't link to you post until you tell me they've been mailed.
Number of Cards: 3:3
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: HD/HP/Collage/Mixed Media

**Please make sure to read the definition you plan to use and illisutrate/collage it accordingly. Some words are spelled similarly, but have completely different meanings.**


Time to break out that old dictionary you have laying around (or make a run to the local dollar store, thrift store, or even a dictionary website) and get creative with me! For this swap, you will select three dictionary words with definitions -- one word will start with the letter J, one card will start with the letter K and one word will start with the letter L – and art away! You must include the dictionary word and definition on the front of your card. I do have some Dos and Don’ts, so please read carefully below.

**As much as possible, I will trade medium for medium, unless you tell me that you are okay with getting mixed returns. However, I am limited by the types of cards people make, so I can’t guarantee this.


SOME IDEAS TO GET THE CREATIVITY FLOWING:
~Nouns are easy to picture and art up (jar, koala, lake), however, consider looking at the verbs or adjectives. Example: “Jovial: heart good humor". For this, you might illustrate people laughing and having a good time.
~Have fun illustrating your word: Example: “Koala: an arboreal marsupial mammal native to Australia.” You can certainly show cute fuzzy koalas, but what about a koala in a white lab coat and a security badge...he is Koala-fied to do the job! (Koala-fied with Koalafications....qualified with qualifications...get it? Hahaha!)
Do whatever sparks your imagination!


DOs and DON’Ts:
~DO show the word/definition somewhere on your card. You can tear/cut it from a dictionary, print it, or have it as a part of your background (as long as the word/definition is visible.) If you write neatly, you can write it on your card.
~DON’T use magazine images as your sole focus – this isn’t artful. Add additional elements to make it artsy, expressive and interesting. You CAN use magazine images if it’s a creative expression of a bigger picture. Please feel free to ask if this isn’t very clear – this rule in place to make sure that participants receive cards that have been made with an attempt at creativity.
~DON’T have one tiny thing that fits the definition, and a bunch of things that have nothing to do with the word/definition. Example: In keeping with the ‘koala’ theme, don’t have random bits and pieces of stuff on your card with one strip of koala-printed washi tape going across the bottom. One or more koalas should be the main focus.
ALL words are acceptable except those words that are racially or politically insensitive.
DO have fun and get creative!


CARD GUIDELINES
~Each card must have a dictionary word with its definition on the front of the card. The Dictionary Word for card 1 will start with the letter J, card 2 will start with the letter K and card 3 will start with the letter L.
~Cards must be 2.5x3.5 inches, sturdy and neatly cut. I will return cards that are misshapen, lopsided or more than 1/8th of an inch off.
~Cards must be in a thin protective plastic sleeve.
~Please don’t make the card super bulky.
~At minimum, please include your User Name on the back of the card. You may add more info if you wish (location, date made, website, etc…)
~Do your best work and get creative. Send cards that were made with thought and care; something you would be thrilled to receive. (READ THE DON’Ts, listed above.)
~FLAT Embellishments are allowed and encouraged. If you embellish your cards, please try to ensure it complements the card. Make sure all embellishments are secured to the card.
~NO STICKERS except as an accent and not a focal image. No white borders on the stickers.
~NO LOOSE GLITTER. If you use glitter, it MUST be in the form of glitter glue or mixed with a sealant like gel medium/matte medium, etc…


MAILING GUIDELINES
~PM me when you are ready to send!
~Include a Forever stamp (U.S.) or a concealed U.S. dollar or U.S. Forever Stamp (outside the U.S).
~Include a neatly written/typed return label.
~Do not include a return envelope unless you really want to – otherwise, I will provide the envelopes.
~Secure cards in the envelope so they don’t all bunch up in a corner. You can tape them to a sturdy paper/light cardboard the shape of the envelope or tape them together in a row.

Got my cards made today, which was great - I didn't want to miss out on one part of the series. My words aren't particularly interesting, compared to some. I chose Japanese, knot, language, lighthouse. I'll try to get them in the mail tomorrow or Tuesday.

My cards have a distinct Australian feel for 2 of them - they are on their way.
My words are: Jeans/genes, Jumbuck, Kangaroo court and Lexicon. The last one means 'Dictionary' and I have it on a page from an Indonesian/English dictionary on which the Indonesian word for dictionary (kamus) is found.

Betsyg
09-25-2019, 10:46 AM
Love Kangaroo court!

Foxglove
09-25-2019, 04:37 PM
Brilliant cards, Donnacr! Love the kangaroo court and the quilled sheep! And you even combined the jean's genes! :D

Mail call! ThouArtDelyrias, your wonderful cards have arrived! I love your word choices: Jabot (the frills on the front of a skirt...I never knew there was a word for it), Key Money and Laciniate (edges narrowly cut into an edge.)

Allegrae
09-28-2019, 07:30 AM

Hi everyone, I am back! I'm so sorry for disappearing - I'm getting over being sick. I'm feeling much better now.

EDIT:
Mail call! Leydab, KatelNorth and Allegrae your wonderful cards are here!
Leydab chose: Joker, Kite (it looks like it could fly off the page!) and Lantern/Light.
KatelNorth chose: Japanese, Knot and Lighthouse (beautifully layered!)
Allegrae has partly departed from her long-running sports them be choosing: Jambalaya (to spicey for me!), Kent Oyster and Lobster.
What a fun bunch of cards! There is just over a week to go before I swap everything!

Donnacr

It is becoming a bit of a worry that my cards have not arrived yet - another swap, mailed a week later, has arrived. Oh, dear. . .

I mailed my cards bright and early Tuesday, im sorry to be cutting it so close, i couldnt go inside and get upgraded shipping to make sure it gets to you, the lady working at the time doesn't like me and has some sort of personal vendetta with ATCs lol i didnt have time for the sass, so I dropped it in the mailbox and I'm crossing my fingers! If they dont I'm sorry and feel free to keep the hostie and send back my cards :) I think they might make it though

Foxglove
10-09-2019, 05:59 PM
Mail call! Our postal delivery seems to be a bit off, because I have cards from Donnacr, Amandawas and Mrubyjean, and I think you all mailed them at different times. EDITED: Disregard if you read my post about Hem18's cards - they ARE here, but they didn't have her user name on them, so I didn't realize they were the cards I was waiting on. YAY!!!

Donnacr (who made some very Australian cards) has: Jumbuck (love the quilling), Kangaroo Court and Lexicon
Amandawas (who made some lovely HD/HP cards): Jewel, Key and Lipstick.
Mrubyjean (who also made some awesome HD/HP cards: Jacamar, Kachina and Leopard Lily.

No worries, Kae.ryan! I will keep my eyes open -Tuesday will probably be the earliest I can get the cards to the post office, but I can hold off a couple days to wait for your cards!

10-11-2019, 05:29 PM
I'm sorry for the scare - I live in a kind of rural area, and the time it takes for mail to reach can vary quite a bit.
More good news - Kae.Ryan, your fun, alliterative cards have arrived! I do believe that is everyone, so I will swap out this weekend and post the cards on Tuesday. I will also ask that this thread be moved to the Active Forums. I will finish with the iTraders and will also be opening up the M, N, O swap! (Honestly, I should have opened it a couple weeks ago!) I hope to see you all in the next swap! :jiggy:

I am so sorry for the slow acknowledgement of these cards but I basically lost October with illness and am just starting to find the things that have been hidden on my desk. I show that these clever cards arrived on October 30 from: leydab, betsyG and Kae.Ryan

many thanks to our Host for this challenging series

off to leave belated points for all :embarrassed:
