Spooky Halloween, Due October 19, 2020



RETURNS MAILED 10/27




Come in for a spell and enjoy this spirited and spooky swap! Create ATCs that are certain to make things go bump in the night with a wicked color palette of spooky purples, eerie oranges and moonlit blacks. You will have a “spooktacular” good time creating your frightful ATCs (NO APCs allowed) of chilling, fear-inspiring, scary ATCs vampires, witches and monsters. Make no bones about it, you need to sign up NOW....

Halloween is filled with traditions and superstitions, and the night is rampant with a plethora of Halloween critters. In Victorian times, Halloween was more of a PARTY than the solemn/spooky holiday we celebrate today. In older days, Halloween was the traditional time for divination for the coming year, often as games for children. It was the favored time to determine the identity of one's future spouse, the location of one's future home, and how many children a person might have. Seasonal foods such as apples and nuts were often employed. Apples were bobbed. Apples were peeled. Apples were thrown.

As autumn approaches, we see fun, frightful scenes that symbolize Halloween. Look to the stores, the malls, the neighbor's house. With customs and traditions that vary widely by community, Halloween now inspires parades and carnivals, corn mazes, haunted houses, neighborhood and school parties, pumpkin festivals, and even pumpkin catapulting. Halloween remains a much anticipated celebration of the macabre in the face of approaching winter.

Your cards can be spooky, or superstitious. You can depict witches, warlocks, ghosts, or monsters. You can show skulls, skeletons, Spells and/or Magick. (NOT stage magic).
Please stay away from El Dia de los Muertos as it is very borderline to this theme, plus there are usually swaps devoted entirely to this theme, so there is no need to duplicate. Beyond that, Anything to do with Halloween, as long as it is spooky. The only thing NOT ALLOWED is cute, kids, or cute kids (dressed up for Halloween).

Additional:
I have been asked about CARDS THAT MOOVE,

Halloween is that eerie, spooky, creepy, time of year, when we tend to see movement out of the corners of our eyes, a time when ghosts and monsters appear behind bushes, and things appear just barely within our sight, and everything seems to shimmer and move.

Many of you already know that cards that lift, slide, spin, pop up, or in any way moove, are my favorite cards. So, since you asked about cards the moove, you are invited to pick your Halloween critter, and make some cards that show moovement.

Think Zombies that shamble, Frankenstein that stomps, spooks that shudder, ghosts that glide, bats that fly, apparitions that flutter, vampires that rise from their coffin. In fact, a coffin lid that opens on a brad, or lifts with a fold-down top are some of the easiest cards to make that still move!!!!!!

You do NOT have to make ATCs that move, but, if you send in a SPOOKY HALLOWEEN CARD that moves, slides, or pops up, I will assure you get back at least one card in return that moves, possibly more than one, depending on how many cards come in.

For anyone confused about "cards that move", I have numerous ATCs in my gallery of cards that spin, fold, move, lift, and pull out. They are labeled as cards that move, but you may have to look for them since they move as I add and delete cards.




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

* 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 an image, cut it out, glue it to a card, and call it done. Color the background. Add some texture. Add more than one image. 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.

* Please sign up by posting to this thread. I will acknowledge you and add your user name to the participant list below.
* ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
* 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”
* All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If it is created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, or more firm, such as a cereal box.
* Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
* 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 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 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards; or one forever and one 15 cent stamp (additional ounce postage) if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy or extra bulky (or 2 forever stamps if that is easier).

* 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 IN MY HANDS by October 19, 2020. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. 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!!!

Dia de los Muertos is very borderline to this theme.
If you really feel motivated to make these cards, please make additional spooky Halloween cards as well, in other words, I will accept DDLM, but please don't send all DDLM.

Sooo, since I have nothing to do but do art my cards are ready to go. I'm glad they get to travel :twitcy: unlike me!
The first card looks simple, but open if you dare! The next card pops-up -- is it a witch, wizard, haunted house or monster? The third card (lower right) is 3 dimensional and will reveal hidden images when opened; the last card is "just" a card, but spooky nevertheless. Enjoy!

The Halloween Stuff is already out!!!!!!!

There was a news item a few days ago, that due to COID-19, candy venders thought trick or treating might be down, so they were sending their Halloween candy to grocery stores early.
But, yesterday, I found a bunch of stores with not only Halloween candy, but also HUGE Halloween displays of other items from nic-nacs to yard inflatables.
Some of the spooky monsters were even wearing face masks, which looked pretty funny.

Please note:
Mail transit times have increased from 3-5 days to 7-10 days, so don't panic if your cards take longer to reach me.
I just picked up mail and several envelopes mailed on the17th have NOT arrived yet, so please be patient.

I just read a press release stating that the post office is not able to meet their own mailing deadlines......
This means delayed mail.

I just received (today) cards mailed on the 15th and on the 17th.
This translates to a 10 day, and an 8 day, mail transit time (for items mailed within the U.S.) as versus an earlier 3-5 day mail transit time.

Please mail early to meet swap deadlines.
Mail is taking longer these days.

Time is just flying by! We are starting to get some color in the trees!

WOW
I had forgotten how much further south you are.
Our trees have already reached (and passed) peak color, except for the Sugar Maple.
And it is going to be splendifforous!

They were not in yesterday's mail, and it is too early for today's mail.
As I pick up mail, and check postmarks, mail transit time has doubled in much of the mail I have received.
Don't worry.
I am sure it is still in transit.
I will let you know as soon as I have your envelope.

SPOOK-TACULAR cards.
"Dancing with the Stars" is stellar
By the Light of the Moon" is enlightening
"Spook" is SPOOK-TACULAR
And "Werewolf" is my fave.
Good Job!
I signed you up.

Welcome LuAnnP.
I signed you up.
You really do have to mail your cards TODAY to assure they reach me on time.
You may already have my address, but I sent it again via PM so you can get your cards mailed.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I know this is a bit of a gamble, and I almost didn't even try, then I thought: GO FOR IT!

I had a LOT of fun designing the final three cards today.... and I did get them in the mail today.

If they don't arrive in time, no big deal. Pick a couple to keep and send the rest back to me. I like all of them well enough to have them back... but I HOPE they arrive in time and that isn't an issue!

Again, Thank you!

I just read through this thread. I did NOT realize mail was going slowly elsewhere. My last few trades have gone through in a very short time so I was, perhaps, overly optimistic.

If the cards are late, don't delay on my account. I don't want to hold up the arrival of Halloween cards to anyone ELSE.

And DO choose a couple to keep for yourself if they arrive past deadline. I'm fine with receiving the rest back. I promise to not jump in late again.

Actually, your cards were postmarked the 12th, and I got them early this morning, which means they might have arrived late yesterday.
That is GREAT transit time, particularly with COVID!!!!!

Well done

No cards received today, but I do have two people who say they have already mailed their ATCs so, since they have already mailed, and since the mail is running slow, I will wait another day.

The Weather Service is predicting a Record Breaking Winter Snow Storm for today, starting in about an hour, and dropping an estimated 3-6 inches of wet snow.

It is too early to bolt to the Post Office, since they will not have their sorting done yet, anyway.
So anyone with mail en-route has another day for their cards to fly in.
I will let you know as soon as your ATCs arrive.

Cards received from arc2dreams and LuannP.

That means all ATCs have been received, so I will swap out and get returns in the mail early next week.

Thanks to everyone for some SPOOK-TACULAR ART

I received my cards on Friday and got to enjoy all the wonderful spookiness on Halloween.

THANK YOU so much to our host, Vicki.

I have left "You Rocks" and, in so doing, made a mistake that I don't know how to fix.

I usually write out my comments ahead of time and copy and paste them into the little slot. I've accidentally hit the wrong Positive/Negative button several times and the copy/paste method helps with the wrong-button-because-I'm-laptop-touchpad-challenged bit.

But it becomes a problem when I copy/paste the wrong comment into the slot.

I had TWO marvelous moving cards, and accidentally pasted the same comment into both.

Vicki, dear host, I DO know that you didn't send the marvelous moving tombstone card. (That was from "Boots.")

Here is the comment I MEANT to paste into your slot:

Super Cool Creep it Real moving card! Great colors. VERY spooky image hiding behind the moving tombstone. Thank you SO much!

You Rocks buttons have made many of us, make errors.
Thank you for your comments, and the comments for Boots.
I know she also follows the swap threads, so I am sure she is also reading this.

The mail is so weird.
You received your returns first, last swap, and this time your returns took much longer to get to you.
Oh well, glad they are there.
Thanks for letting me know.
