    Figured I'd FINALLY get on this.

    These are what I'm up to Currently, and those listed are the ones I need:

    Anything Goes:
    Clubs: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K
    Diamonds: 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, J, Q, K
    Hearts: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K
    Spades: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, J, K
    Jokers: R, B

    Prohibition/Roaring 20’s/Flappers/Mobsters/Jazz (etc…) :
    Clubs: A, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, J, Q, K
    Diamonds: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, J, Q, K
    Hearts: A, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K
    Spades: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, K
    Jokers: R,

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

    DO’s: Well-made cards of Any Media/Medium. I love creative cards, humor/irony. Tasteful nudity/suggestive is perfectly fine. Postage stamps are also very loved, but NOT required by any means. Historically accurate pictures/News are very welcome (especially for the Prohibition themed deck).
    DON’T’S: Please, do not use a ton of pink. I really despise the color. Small hints are fine…but no all-pink cards. Nothing cutesy, tons of flowers, or copious amounts of or focal point stickers.
    LOCATION: Michigan, USA. International Trades are Welcome!

    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

    APC Decks in Progress

    General likes: I prefer flat, lightweight cards. I'd also prefer 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 poker sized cards with at least the top left number/suit showing.

    General theme dislikes: for any theme, I don't like blood & gore, zombies, and nudes... or halloween.

    General media dislikes: my only media restrictions are no beeswax, real vegetation (flowers, leaves etc) and no raised embellishments please

    Red numbers are currently unavailable due to a swap or trade currently in progress...

    THEME: Alice in Wonderland
    prefer anything from Lewis Carroll or the Disney animated version.

    Spades: Ace,-,3,-,5,-,7,8,9,-,Jack,Queen,-
    Clubs: -,2,3,4,-,-,7,-,-,-,Jack,-,King
    Hearts: Ace,-,-,-,-,-,7,8,9,-,Jack,-,King
    Diamonds: -,-,-,-,-,-,7,8,9,10,Jack,-,King

    Hearts: -,2,-,-,5,6,7,-,9,10,-,-,-
    Diamonds: -,2,3,-,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King

    THEME: Cats
    cat heads or full bodies, I would prefer realistic images (no cartoon cats or cat rubber stamp images). A picture of your cat with his/her name (if you own one) would be awesome!

    Spades: -,-,-,4,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,Q,-
    Clubs: -,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,9,10,-,-,K
    Hearts: -,-,-,4,5,6,-,-,9,-,-,-,-
    Diamonds: -,-,-,-,5,6,-,-,-,-,-,-,K

    THEME: Coffee

    Clubs: -,-,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,-,J,-,-
    Hearts: -,-,-,4,5,6,-,-,-,-,-,-,-

    I'm also working on building decks to give to my daughters as a gift

    Deck 3: done! THEME: Positive Quote with a Cancelled Postage Stamp
    Deck 2: done! THEME: 50 United States
    Deck 6: done! THEME: Books and Reading!

    Deck 4:
    THEME: APCs of non-poker sizes or with suits not in English (ie, French Cards have R for Roi instead of K for King)
    NEEDED:
    Spades: 9, 5
    Hearts: A, K, 8
    Clubs: 8, 7
    Diamonds: A, J, 8, 6
    DETAILS: I would like to collect unusually shaped APCs and suits in foreign languages. 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!
    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), Rosa Parks (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, Miss Leitzel, Kay Livingstone, Christian Schad's Maika, Czobel Bela's Mimi, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Alice Munro, Nofrete, Flannery O'Connor, Rosa Parks (2), Edith Piaf, Harriet Quimby, Red Cross nurses-Australia, Eleanor Roosevelt, Maria Rousia, 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 7:
    THEME: The Sea Around Us
    NEEDED:
    Spades: A
    Diamonds: Q

    DETAILS: I would like to collect APCs with fish, sea animals, ships, sailors, nautical themes, lighthouses
    DO's: I like postage stamps, collage/mixed media or hand drawn. I prefer cards with some emphasis on nature or science. I love postage stamps with nautical themes. Favourites: all kinds of whales, rays, Hawaiian fish, octopus, West Coast sea life, seaweed, nudibranchs, pretty shells. Quotes from Rachel Carson's The Edge of the Sea
    DON'TS: No pirates, mermaids, sad themes (ie. environmental destruction). No deep-sea freaky fish. Nothing gory, sad, or frightening

    THEME: Fun in the Magic Forest

    Clubs: Q, 2
    Hearts: Q, 2
    Diamonds:Q, 3, 2

    Personal APC ad for arcana

    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
    Needed:
    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

    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.

    Needed:
    Spades : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,Jack,Queen,King

    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 media...it'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., digital..it'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 style...it'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.

    Post Thanks / Like
    I have been thinking about collecting some APC decks of my own, so I'd definitely like to get in on this!!

    Some Notes/Details:
    Any and all media I accept on the cards I receive. Even stickers. But don't let that be the only thing on the card! The top left part of the APC needs to be showing (number and suit) or you can leave 1/3 inch or so on the entire left side undecorated. Bridge or poker cards are both fine by me. As I want the whole entire deck, I would also like the jokers to be included for each APC set. That way, I can evenly fill all 6 pocket pages for each deck. Please include on the back, information on what deck each card is for, along with your name, the date, etc.

    Deck 1:
    Theme: Fantasy
    Cards Needed: All including the jokers
    Do's: Any kind of fantasy genre will work (sword and sorcery, contemporary, dark fantasy/gothic, high fantasy, etc.) Again, all styles/techniques welcome. The art can be inspired by folklore, popular media or made-up by you. As long as it has to do with fantasy/myth.
    Don'ts: Can't really think of any don'ts here.

    Deck 2:
    Theme: Outer Space
    Cards Needed: All, including the jokers
    Do's: Anything to do with space is welcome, any media. Feel free to go wild with making up your own alien worlds/landscapes. Stick to the theme!
    Don'ts: Can't think of anything.

    Deck 3:
    Theme: Animals
    Cards Needed:
    Clubs-Ace, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King
    Hearts-All
    Spades-2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King
    Diamonds-Ace, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, Jack, Queen, King
    Jokers-Both
    Do's: All animals welcome, even butterflies, dragonflies, bees, moths, and ladybugs.
    Don'ts: NO ugly bugs allowed (things like cockroaches, praying mantises and the like as those are icky) Technically, bugs are classified as animals scientifically speaking, so just wanted to state the above.

    Deck 4:
    Theme: Flowers
    Cards Needed: All including the jokers
    Do's: realistic, whimsical, fantasy, dark, etc. All types and colors. State what flower it is on the back.
    Don'ts: Can't think of anything now.

    Deck 5:
    Theme: Leaves
    Cards Needed: All including the jokers
    Do's: whimsical, green, fall/autumn, unusual coloring, dark, gothic leaves, leaves with faces, leaf people, anything to do with leaves will work
    Don'ts: None

    Deck 6:
    Theme: Forgotten Realms (D&D campaign setting)
    Cards Needed: All, including the jokers
    Do's: Anything to do with Forgotten Realms, deities, places, historic events like the Time of Troubles or the Spell Plague, races, classes/professions, monsters, magic, planes of existence, etc. All you RPGers and gamers may or may not be familiar with this fantasy setting. If not, and even if you are, a great site is the Forgotten Realms Wiki which has a plethora of info about everything FR related. I would especially love cards on the Fugue Plane, the race of Avariel, Mystra the goddess of magic, and gold dragons, etc. Any media and materials.
    Don'ts: Do not make generic D&D cards or based on other campaigns, only focus on the Forgotten Realms setting.

    Deck 7:
    Theme: Keys
    Cards Needed: All including the jokers
    Do's: shiny or rusty, new or old, plain or elaborate, one or more, etc. All keys will fit.
    Don'ts: None

    Location: USA-will trade internationally too
    Comments: A lot of topics to choose from to make cards, so I hope this gives people enough options to pick from. I am just starting these decks so please PM me on what card number/suit you are making so I can cross it off the list! I am willing to trade with anyone, just ask!
