SWAP IS FULL

Swap Requirements:

This swap is a mixed media collage challenge to create ATCs from trash items which I will provide. You must use at least 3 trash items on each card. Be willing to think outside the box and use items in different and new ways. Each envelope will have the same types of items. Some items are identical for all players. But some items are of the same type but slightly different.

This is a no withdrawal swap, while you won’t know what is in the envelope until you receive it, if you request and receive an envelope you are required to complete the swap. No cards, no communication may result in neutral iTrader.

PM me with your mailing address, so I can send out your trash items.

Swap is 5 for 5 cards. Host cards are not required, but will be treasured if you should choose to send one.

Each card must be 2.5" x 3.5" inches and on a sturdy base. You may have curved edges or shaped corners if you wish, but no coins or other unusual shapes. Cards must be protected in sleeves. If you cannot obtain sleeves a cut up card page or small baggie is acceptable.

You must use at least three trash items per card. As always, “use” can be more than attaching the item, you can alter any item. You may shred it, singe it, or glue it mosaic style if you like. You can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. You can use it as a tool. But you must use it somehow.

We all have different skills so please send work you are proud of. I will do my best to swap effort for effort.

All cards need to be labeled with your real name, and your AFA username, so others can leave you their thanks via YouRock!s. Also, you must list on the back what trash items you used.

TO SIGN UP

Post to the thread to sign up. State that you have read all the details and that you are aware that this is a no withdrawal swap.

Send me a private message with your mailing address. I will mail you an envelope of trash.

Once you have messaged me your address, there is no withdrawal.

POSTING TO THE THREAD

~Please post to the thread when you have received your trash items.
~We all love seeing creations along the way. If possible, please post your cards in the thread and list which trash items you have used.
~Please post to the thread when you have mailed your finished cards to me.

MAILING YOUR CARDS

~Send each card in its own ATC sleeve, or some other individual protection.
~Please spread and lightly tape cards inside the envelope, as flat and even as possible. Or use a cut up card holder page.
~Send a label with your name and address legibly printed on it. I can provide envelopes.
~US Players: Send 2 forever stamps. One to reimburse me for the cost of mailing you the trash envelope and one for mailing your returns to you. I will take care of any additional postage if necessary.
~International Players, please include $2 U.S. OR 2 Global Forever stamps, covering my initial mailing to you and your returns mailing later. I will take care of any additional postage if necessary.
~I live in Alabama. Please be aware of the mailing time from your location to me and to mail your cards in time for me to receive them by the due date. Late cards will be returned to sender and a neutral iTrader given.

AFTER YOUR RETURN CARDS ARE RECEIVED

When you receive your returns, please post in the swap thread that you have received them. Don’t forget to leave an iTrader for me and You Rocks! to the other artists. It is always nice to tell the player which card you received too.

Any questions? PM me or post it to the thread as others may have the same question but are too shy to speak up.

Who wants to play?

Great cards plumhill2001. I tend to like bird cards, so of course that one stood out. But you did a great job with all the other themes.

At the bottom of my likes, is Brother and even that is a great card. I am more partial to cards with postage stamps, and I like dog card too. So super job on your art.

Iíve got a question. So each card needs to use at least three trash items. Along with that, can we use other images and stuff from our stash, too, or do we use the trash items only?

Good question for clarification. You need only use 3 trash items per card and you can use whatever else you want with it -- your own stash or the trash provided. Whatever works as long as you use 3 trash items.

I have my cards done. I had one extra, and it was tough to decide which one to not send.

This flower one was up for debate because the flower is chunky. I will send extra postage, but maybe you will keep it as the hostess card.

Wow! Some really fantastic creations coming from a bunch of trash -- I love it!!! prex, the "happy" dog gave me a good chuckle and the "bad boy" was so cute. CastleQueen5, I see your dominant color green is playing a big part, and I like the sentiment of understanding ourselves. Well done, both of you!! siempie_h, glad the trash made it to you safely. You should have lots of inspiration in this thread if you get stuck! What fun I am going to have to see all these treasures spread out for swapping in September. :)

I understand! Would you believe I received an envelope today from a player in my Clearance swap from LAST OCTOBER?!?! It came from TX and was postmarked Sept 05, 2019 and just got here today!!! Nothing wrong with the envelope and no explanation as to where it was or why it was lost (and found!) Strange happenings....

A fun car postage stamp from Dnewton972


The bird napkin card, that I know I was over the moon about from HEYMAGGIE

A bird card from Plumhill that is new to my eyes, but I love bird cards. or maybe I begged for it too. I tend to like the bird cards.


a lovely dragonfly with some embossing silver and FLY, from rachml, , again another new to my eyes, but I have a whole binder area for just dragonflies. I dont mention it much because I am always talking about cat and coffee and sunflowers, but it right next to my bird and butterflies. Things with wings.

If someone specifically mentions they like someone's card, I make a note of it so I can give them what they want if I can. If more than one person likes the same card, they usually like others as well, so I can decide who gets that "coveted" card. Here is what I had for notes for you:
"plumhill2001- bird card
dnewton972 - fly with bird; car
heymaggie - duck; bird; dog
Mushu - faith brings" so
