    Theme: Postage Stamps of National Parks NEW DECK - almost all cards are needed!
    Medium: Any, but please no stickers as the main focus.
    Location: Finland; international trades are welcome, I'm glad to trade more than one at a time

    Please use actual playing cards with at least the top left corner showing the suit and number. The size can be either poker size (2.5×3.5 inches (64×89 mm) or 1/16 inches narrower (61,5x89 mm).

    Please use a real postage stamp of a National Park, or other natural region, sight or monument.

    I already have a card with: Grand Canyon NP,

    The cards I still need are:

    Spades: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A
    Clubs: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A
    Diamonds: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A
    Hearts: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A

    Theme: Postage Stamps of Famous Women
    Medium: Any, but please no stickers as the main focus.
    Location: Finland; international trades are welcome, I'm glad to trade more than one at a time

    Please use actual playing cards with at least the top left corner showing the suit and number. The size can be either poker size (2.5×3.5 inches (64×89 mm) or 1/16 inches narrower (61,5x89 mm).

    You needn’t worry if the woman of your postage stamp is famous enough. It’s enough that a postage stamp has been made of her/with her name on it! If you don’t think she´s known outside your country, it´s nice (but not obligatory) to include in the card title her profession or what she was famous for. (like this: Frida Kahlo, painter, Mexico).

    (More about the stamps: It does not matter if the stamp is used or not; it’s cool for the canceling stamp to show but if you have the choice, it’s nicest to pick one where it hasn’t totally smeared the image. I would love the stamp to be intact, ie. not cut with scissors so that the borders are partly left out. If you have the opportunity, the stamps are easy to take loose from the envies by soaking them a little while in the water. This does not work with all the recent stamps, though, for example the globe shaped U.S. forever stamps have a sticky background that is harder to work with. Never mind if this happens!)

    The women I already have are
    Queen Anne, Queen Elizabeth II, Virginia Apgar, Lucille Ball, Elizabeth Bishop, Bessie Coleman, Celia Cruz, Marie Curie, Szidonia Deak, Madonna and Child, Marlene Dietrich, Isadora Duncan, Greta Garbo, Jane Stocks Greig, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, Barbara Jordan, Grace Kelly, Maria Goeppert Mayer, Dame Nellie Melba, Lydia Mendoza, Carmen Miranda, Edith Piaf, Sylvia Plath, Tien Soeharto, Johanna Spyri, Mary Stuart,
    Mother Teresa, Shirley Temple, Martha Washington

    I would like to avoid duplicates in the women as well as in the cards of the deck.

    And the cards I still need are:
    Spades: 4, 6, 8,
    Clubs: 2, 5, 7, 10, A
    Diamonds: K
    Hearts: 6, 10, Q, K, A

    Most styles of art are encouraged: this includes fabric, collage, mixed media, hand drawn, hand painted, zentangles, zetti, rubber stamps, German scrap etc. The angel does need to be the main focus of the card, not an accent. Please avoid a big sticker angel, German scrap angels are acceptable.

    * This is not for holiday angels, fairies swap nor an animals with wings, no butterfly wings added to images please. Cupids and cherub like angels, cemetery angels, Biblical, mythic, gothic angels are acceptable. Even the angel of death is ok or very accurate Bible angels, both of which are creepy. Lucifer, a fallen angel is not acceptable. No fallen angels.

The Bridge size and European poker size (a few mm smaller than 2.5" by 3.5") are good for this deck and I have seen cards in unique shapes like hearts, ovals, circles, snowmen, gnomes, or in miniature. Suits might be a bit open, as some non standard cards don't have standard suits either or are indicated in another language. I'll be flexible about suits but would like to stick to 4 of each number.
    DO's: Use a non-poker sized card/unusually shaped card/card with suits in another language as a base and leave at least the top left suit and number visible. The theme of the card is open, but ideally I would like it to be inspired by the card itself (ie, if the card is heart shaped do a heart theme) or for it to relate to one of the interests on my profile.
    DONT's: No cards larger than 4" by 6" and no smaller than 1" by 2." Please don't cover the whole back of the card, just cover a little with your artist information and leave the rest visible. I don't eat meat, so please nothing to do with bacon, unless it's a bacon shaped playing card hahaha.

    Deck 5:
    THEME: Women on Postage Stamps
    NEEDED: Always collecting Queens of any suit!
    Spades: Q, J, 8, 7, 2
    Hearts: Q, 8, 7
    Clubs: Q, 9, 2
    Diamonds: Q, 7
    DO's: Use a 2.5" by 3.5" card and have at least the top left suit and number visible. Include at least one postage stamp of a woman, girl, or female group. I would love to diversify my deck with more "women of colour." Postage stamp ideas: a famous woman, a head of state, a fictional/mythical woman or girl, an athlete, a random woman on a stamp (like an unnamed woman working, doing art, an activity, sport, etc), a woman or girls group (like Girl Guides, YWCA, sports team, etc), symbol (like Venus symbol, breast cancer pink ribbon, etc), a woman in cultural, traditional or historical clothing, stamps promoting breast feeding or women's health, or a woman portrayed in art work. Nudes are welcome. Trans women are welcome (but I don't know if any are featured on postage stamps, yet). Please keep the cards positive.
    DONT's: No more cards with Janis Joplin (3), Maya Angelou (4), Man Ray's muse Kiki (2) or Gibson Girl (2)-I love them, but I already have multiple APCs and ATCs with them. No angels or fairies, please.
    Women on stamps I have (hoping to avoid repeats of more than 2 cards per same woman stamp): Maya Angelou (4), Queen Amadala, Barbara (Monique Andrée Serf), Ingrid Bergman, Mary Cassatt, Shirley Chisholm, Celia Cruz, Rose Adelaide Degas, Emily Dickinson, Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Dunham, Elizabeth I, Elizabeth II, Rachel Felix (as Phedre), Marie Hortense Fiquet (Mme Cezanne), Indira Gandhi, Gibson Girl (2), Girl Guides-Australia, Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, Helen Hayes, Dorothy Height, Katharine Hepburn, Marguerite Higgins, Lena Horne, Janis Joplin (3), Helen Keller, Kiki (photographed by Man Ray)(2),kd lang, Kay Livingstone, Christian Schad's Maika, Czobel Bela's Mimi, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Alice Munro, Nofrete, Flannery O'Connor, Rosa Parks, Edith Piaf,Red Cross nurses-Australia, Eleanor Roosevelt, Fatmawati Soekaro, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Shirley Temple, Sarah Vaughan, Simonetta Vespucci, Queen Victoria, Wonder Woman-Silver Age, Bronze Age, Modern Age, Women War Workers-Australia

    Deck 6:
    THEME: Books and Reading!
    Spades: Q
    Hearts: A, K, Q, 5
    Diamonds: A, 9, 2
    DETAILS: I would like to collect APCs with books, reading, and libraries, including my favourite books, poetry, literature, authors, and illustrators, especially favourites from my childhood. You could create a collage inspired by the book, an imaginary book cover, put a quote from the book, represent a character, etc. I love when literary postage stamps are used on APCs!
    DO's: I like postage stamps, collage/mixed media or hand drawn. My favourites are: Rupert Bear, Harry Potter series by JK Rowling-I'd love cards with the Sorting Hat, Hagrid's Three Headed Dog, Fluffy, Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas & the Cat in the Hat, Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Dracula by Bram Stoker, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith, Poetry by William Blake, Ulysses by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch, The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis, Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic books (season 10 & 11 preferred), Fairy Tales: The Musicians of Bremen, The Snow Queen, East O the Sun, West O the Moon. Other things that would go well in this deck: women reading, animals reading, the Biblioburro, cute or unique libraries, postage stamps related to literacy or books.
    DON'TS: no images from movie or TV adaptations, unless it's on a postage stamp. Nothing from Chronicles of Narnia movies, even postage stamps. No Margaret Atwood, Stephen King, Suzanne Collins, Twilight, most fiction in general. Nothing too gory, sad, or frightening

    LOCATION: I'm in Canada and am happy to trade internationally
    COMMENTS: I would prefer to do 2:2 or 3:3 trades to save on postage

    Do's: Vintage, historical, antique colors and design, pre-WWII only, please. I love the Victorian Era, so photos are great from that time period. Collage only! I prefer there to be a central image, like a photo, then mixed-media & collage for the background and around the image. Embellishments are fine. Vintage colors or pastels are preferred. I especially love the sienna colors. My favorite colors are blues and greens...all shades. I also love red or pink in vintage style artwork. Artful, tasteful nudes are fine, as portrayed in classical art. Art from Victorian Trade cards is perfect! Religious themes are fine (any), as long as it is historical in reference.

    Don'ts: No abstract, modern art designs. No bright, rainbow, or neon colors. No modern cartoon type designs. Nothing gross, vulgar, or uncouth. No art that is designed to "shock" the viewer. No fundamentalist type religious themes. Please ask if you aren't sure. Please no black and white...color in a image, if you need to. Thanks!

    THEME: Vintage Alice in Wonderland
    Spades : Ace,2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,4,5,Queen,King
    Hearts : 2,6
    Diamonds : Ace,2,3,4,5,7,9,10, Queen, Jack
    Details: I prefer images in the style of John Tenniel and Arthur Rackham. Antique children's books are good, too. No Disney, please.

    THEME: Vintage Christmas
    Spades : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Queen,King
    Diamonds : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,King
    Details: I prefer the muted and pastel colors of vintage Christmas over the bright reds/greens. I would love to have some Nutcracker Sweet and 12 Days of Christmas themed cards to add in. Victorian Era Christmas images/cards are preferred. Graphic45 products are a great place to find inspiration. Please no "Jesus is the reason for the season" type themes. Keep it historical and not religious. I am not fond of the commercial Coca-Cola/American Santa Claus, either. Santa not dressed in red is preferred. I love Santa in white, green, browns, silver, and blue.

    THEME: Victorian Era Halloween Witches
    Spades : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
    Diamonds : 3,4,5,6,7,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Details: Love anything vintage Witchcraft themed! Photos of Victorian women and girls in witch costumes, old apothecary labels/bottles, black cats, Victorian Era Halloween trade cards, can be beautiful witches, ugly witches, old witches, young witches, evil witches, good witches, all of 'em!

    I'm not keeping track of numbers and suits anymore. I will just trade for what strikes my fancy. But my favorite APC themes are Collage with a Cancelled Postage Stamp, collage of sewing theme, nature, outer space, HD/HP.

    poker-sized card only and at least the top left suit and number visible.

    no flag or love type postage stamps, no inspirational words, no children babies or domestic animals (love them, just not on my APCs), no religion, nothing sad, scary, creepy or dark of mood.

    I'm just getting started with making and collecting APCs, so here's my wishlist: (Red text means a trade is pending.)

    1: THEME: Hearts with a Pick-me-up or inspirational word or message. (if you search for "52 Card Pick-up Altered Playing Card" on google or Pinterest, you'll see what I mean).

    2: NEEDED: Almost everything at the moment!
    Spades : Ace,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack
    Diamonds : Ace,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,Jack,Queen,King

    3. DETAILS: I love the cards people have been making for the 52 Card Pick-up challenge, and would like to build my own collection. My plan is to make an APC book of feel-good, pick-me-up messages once I collect enough of them. Embellishments are okay!

    DO'S: The card should have a heart (but it's not necessary) and a short or longish quote as the main focus. Mixed media, art journalish, collage and/or painted backgrounds/focus is perfect. The messages can be stamped, torn from book pages/magazine, Dynamo'd or HD/HP. They can be quotes from a favorite author/personality, words of wisdom your mother or father gave you - all is welcome. Cards can look messy, grungy, vintage, shabby chic - I don't mind, have fun with it! The Suit/Number in the upper left corner should be visible, but it's okay if its peeking through paints/inks/thin paper.

    DON'TS: I prefer not to receive religious scripture. Also, I'd like to receive something beyond the single word cliché "Believe", "Hope", "Dream" statements that are so popular, but I won't turn it away. I'd just like to avoid collecting a deck that says the same thing....but if the rest of the card is interesting, then I absolutely won't turn one down.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1: THEME: Collage/Mixed Media - any theme!

    2: Needed: Almost everything at the moment!
    Spades : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Diamonds : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King

    3. Details: I'd love any theme, as long as they're collage/mixed media cards. Embellishments are okay!

    DO'S: Anything goes, as long as there's some level of artistic effort put into it! The number/suit should be visible, but it's okay if it's visible through a layer of paint or transparent paper/other media. If you need help with coming up with an idea, you can check out my profile or ATC wish list, bur honestly, I love just about everything.

    DON'TS: No nudes, and please do something more than just glue a few pieces of paper down and call it good.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1: THEME: Whimsical People. I would like to create a deck based on whimsical ladies, gents and other fantastical beings. Hand drawn/painted, collaged/mixed's all good!

    2: Needed: Everything at the moment!
    Spades : Ace,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Diamonds : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King

    3. Details: My definition of whimsy is anyrhing that isn't done in a realistic way. So sketchy, etheral, dreamy, etc. I'm open to ladies, gents and other whimsical fantastical beings. Embellishments are okay!

    DOs: Hand drawn/painted, mixed media, art journal style.,'s all good!
    DONT'S: No chibi, please. If you make a digital card, please make sure it's printed on a good printer (no blurry prints, please) and make sure it's 100% something you've actually created. I would prefer not to have a slightly altered download.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1: THEME: Wings and/or crowns! I would like to create a deck based on Things with Wings and/or Crowns, be they people, animals, or things! Collage, HD/HP, mixed media, any's all good!

    2: Needed: Everything at the moment!
    Spades : Ace,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Diamonds : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen

    3. Details: I'd like to build a deck based on Wings and/or Crowns. Collaged wings, stamped wings, drawn or painted wings, wings 'borrowed' from butterflies, dragonflies, birds...anything goes. Similarly with the crowns...they can be made from anything. Put wings or crowns on people (vintage or not), animals (ever see a winged/crowned giraffe?) or things (how about a tea cup flying through the air?) I just love wings and crowns...anyone want to help me out? Embellishments are okay!

    DOs: Be creative! If it has wings or a crown, I already love it! Drawn, collaged, mixed media - I don't care, as long as there's wings!
    DON'T: Forget the wings and/or a crown. :-) Otherwise - be free!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1: THEME: Flowers and/or sea- or landscapes Collage, HD/HP, mixed media, any style is perfect.

    2: Needed: Everything at the moment!
    Spades: Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs: Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts: Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Diamonds: Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King

    3. Details: Just as it says above - flowers or land/sea scapes. Any media goes...rubber stamped, digital, HD/HP, collaged, art journal-style, whimsical or realistic.

    DOs: Be creative!
    DON'T: No nudity, and if it's collage/MM, please don't just slap a few images on the card and call it quits. Layers and visual interest are good.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    LOCATION: I'm in the US, but willing and able to trade internationally.

    COMMENTS: I'm willing to do 1:1 to 2:2 trades if it helps on postage.
