Swap Due Date: December 5
Withdraw by date: NO Withdraw
Number of Items: 4 for 4
Maximum number of participants: 50
Media: Collage – Mixed Media
A Change of Scenery

I will mail each player 6 playing cards. Each card has a person (or people) on the back. Every player will get the same people. The goal is to give the person a change of scenery and/or alter what they are doing. You can pick whichever people you want to work with. You could even put two people onto one ATC if you want!

I got this idea from Trash to Treasure 7, which included a card with a woman making breakfast. I loved seeing how people changed her surroundings and activity. I let her enjoy a glass of wine!

210217

This is a no withdrawal swap, I will leave neutral itrader to those who don’t complete the commitment to this swap. No cards, no communication, or late cards may result in neutral itrader.

Please let me know when you receive your envelope of people.

~These are bridge sized cards (not the standard ATC size). Please do not use the card to make an APC or just as a foundation.
~This is a 4 for 4 ATC trade. A host card is not necessary, but if you choose to send one, I will most certainly treasure it!

Please make sure your cards are complete, something you would be excited to receive if I sent it to you.

All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” X 3.5” and sturdy. If it suits your scenery, you may do a house shaped or arch shaped card if it is still overall 2.5” X 3.5”. Please don’t sent flimsy cards that are just a sheet of paper. Back your ATC on sturdy cardstock or paperboard (such as a cereal or tissue box). Cards need to be sent in a plastic sleeve for their protection.

Please include at least the Swap name, your Username, your real name and location on the back of each card.

US participants: please send a large address label with your name and address clearly printed on it and 2 forever stamps. (one stamp to cover my cost of sending the cards to you and one to send your returns to you). I can provide envelopes.

International participants: please enclose a large address label with your name and address clearly printed on it and 2 well concealed US dollar bills or 2 US International forever stamps. I can provide envelopes.

When your cards are ready to mail please post on the thread. Also, we all love a little eye candy, so if possible, please post pics! You can mail your finished cards back to me at the same address that is on the return address label or send me a PM for my address. Please mail your cards early so that they will arrive by the deadline.

When you receive your returns, please leave “you rock” points for the artists whose cards you received, and if you feel that I’ve done a good job as a host, please leave an iTrader for me (haagmm).

I'm a little confused about what you mean by "Each card has a person (or people) on the back."
I'm assuming that means you're mailing 6 collage items that are loose and we will use these, or how else could we put them infront of a new background, right?
Also, what are the six "playing cards"? We're doing ATC's not APC's right?
Sorry for the dumb-assy-ness, here. :eek:

What I understand is no withdrawing. You are sending us playing cards which each have a person on the back. We have to cut out this person and put it in different surroundings. You will send us 6 of these cards so we have choices of which ones we want to use.
We are not supposed to use the playing card you send as our ATC base. that is to be heavy cardstock, light cardboard.

Haagmm
10-04-2019, 10:53 AM
BluSkyHare- I am sending out 6 playing cards with people on the back (not the side with the hearts/spades/etc). Everyone will get the same 6 people. You'll cut the people out and give them a change of scenery on an ATC (not left on their playing card. Currently they are playing golf, dancing, riding a horse. Does that help?

No I just like to collect a card or two from decks with fun backs. I dont collect whole decks. The images are fun. I like the 5 of hearts, and Face cards and jokers the most.

NancyL
10-09-2019, 12:25 PM
It took me awhile to figure out how to provide interesting backgrounds.

I collect post cards. and I have some that I was willing to cut up. My mountie in the snow went to Hawaii. He took his dog with him. The other mountie found a new ride. His horse ended up behind the cash register at a diner. My woman spanish dancer is dancing at that diner. Her partner is with a man in a kilt who is playing the bagpipes.

My ability to post in a thread has passed. I may be able to send out these cards before we leave on our trip.

Great cards, hem18! I went through a few of my old national geographic magazine (like, 10 years old!). I put the yellow golfer on the rocks with some sealions, but it looks like she taking aim at one! Oh, well! I'll have to draw in a little white ball I think.

The dog is an extra and is in my gallery.

Finally had both time and mental energy to work on the cards for this swap - I was thinking it was a 5:5 swap, so I have actually made six cards - oh well, I wouldn't have been able to figure out who to leave out anyway.

Here are the first three - one of the mounties finds himself with a slightly different pet, one of the female golfers is a bit stuck in a tree (I first tried that one out with two wings, but then couldn't figure out why she'd be stuck, if she had two wings...), and the female dancer is jumping out of a basket...

And here are the other three - the other mountie has tried his hand at churning butter, the other golfer is making cocktails (doesn't it look like she's doing fancy cocktail shaking? lol) and the male dancer found his place on an empty plinth with some new friends...

They'll be going in the post to you tomorrow!

Kate, they are all so creative!! I just have to especially mention the female dancer, the bartender, and the male dancer- (that one really cracked me up!)

When I found that Easter Island (?) picture in my stash, I knew I had to use it for one of them - I auditioned them all in that spot (it really was an empty base, I didn't cut anything away), but he was the best.

I saw the cheetah one first and said out loud "oh how cute" then the broken wing golfer now fairy melted my heart. What a creative idea to give her wings.

THEN putting the dancer in a basket, GENIUS!!! It just gets better.

The butter was funny, and tickled my funny bone.

I am not really into alcohol cards, but love to see how we find a way to use those golfers.

If I were the host, I would keep the Easter Island.

Marie
11-11-2019, 02:36 AM
Kate !! Just wow!!! Sooo creative and clever! I think my favorite is broken wing, but I can’t be sure because that girl mixing drinks had my literally laughing out loud! Easter Island is a hoot!

MrsMixedMedia I loooooove that dog!!! That crown... the ice cream! Great day to be a dog! I love how you managed to use the smaller person on the golf card too... I wanted to but couldnít find a plan. And dressing up that dancer was genius! Very convincing. You sure had great ideas! Woot!

Sorry - I've been out of touch for a few days. My mother-in-law fell on Tuesday and broke her hip. So, she had surgery yesterday and we are trying to figure out what the next step will be for her.

I have received some phenomenal cards from AnitaMac, dithespy, Marie and CQ5.

Every set that I see has at least 2 cards that really give me a chuckle! (some it's all of them!)

What are you going to do with all those extra cards, Haagmm?

You could do some CRRR
or host a swap over on that "other" site, swap-bot. I think you might get some takers in my group over there. Think about it.

Or just hoard them til you die and then your kids will toss them out and wonder what the heck was wrong with mother that she kept all this stuff. (that is my plan)

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I did not have a change of scenery for my Thanksgiving dinner- we ate with about 40 members of our “ranch family”. There’s a family that volunteers to prepare a fantastic thanksgiving dinner for any of the boys who don’t have anywhere to go for a holiday pass.

One week until the deadline!!

Working on the swapping out tonight. These cards are the best!!!

Haagmm
12-18-2019, 12:07 PM
Whew - Swapping these out was a little tougher than I thought it would be. Of course, I wanted to make sure that nobody got duplicates of one particular person, so that took a little extra sorting.

Haagmm
12-19-2019, 12:56 PM
All the cards went out this morning. I stood in the ridiculous holiday line at the post office so everything could be weighed and properly posted. About half went non-machinable so they will take longer. As I said, I tried to not give anyone two cards of the same person but wasn't able to do that 100%.

Honorable mention to the flamenco dancer turned surfer and the flamenco dancer turned Christmas tree decorator. Those were perfect change of scenery and activity that worked so well with their body positioning.

This evening I will post a listing of some of the changes that each of our people experienced.

Here is an overview of everything that our people got to experience with their "Changes of Scenery":

The Royal Mounties decided it was time to take a vacation and see what all they could do. They got to try their hand at herding sheep, parachuting, fishing, sight-seeing, building a snowman, doing dishes, taking a road-trip, going to a party, taming cheetahs, churning butter, winning a dog show, stopping to smell the flowers and last but certainly not least, helping the horse find true love.

The flamenco dancers also got to try out many new activities. They tried swimming as a mermaid, decorating a Christmas tree, ballet dancing, playing football, fishing, hula dancing, bull fighting, playing the bagpipes, canoeing, falling in love, surfing, picking a great wine, grilling, and being a crossing guard. They also got to try out the new, ultra popular dance style...Flamingo Dancing!! They also experienced a serious storm and escaped from some flooding, then spent one winter as a centaur and finally took trips to to Easter Island and the jungle!

And our golf playing friends had to put away the golf clubs and pick up some tools and heavy weaponry...including taking up a newspaper to defend against a spider, using a sickle to harvest grapes, vacuuming, tenderizing some meat, and chopping wood with an ax. But you know what they say about all work and no play. They were often seen with umbrellas and balloons but also tried their hands at zip-lining, playing the guitar, climbing trees, mixing drinks and feeding the birds. Of course, all of life can't be fun and games, they also had to get groceries. There was still a little time for dancing, bird-watching with some dandy binoculars and of course, getting coffee!!

I do hope that you all enjoyed the swap and I hope you get a kick out of your returns.
