    LIST: 1-1 APC Trades

    This thread is for setting up PERSONAL swaps with other traders for
    Altered Playing Cards
    -ALL Cards need to be 2 1/2" by 3 1/2"

    You create your Altered Playing Card (APC) Ďadí here.
    Please specify in your ad what cards you need and theme for a deck.
    Others read your ad and contact you to arrange a trade.

    How to post an 'ad' for APCS:
    1. THEME: Declare your theme/topic that you want for your deck!
    2. Needed: List what cards you need for each deck.
    3. Details: Consider what you want or donít want. Do you want thick cards? do you want the backs left bare with and Identification card included? Do you prefer that a "real" playing card be used as a base? etc.
    - DO's: Let us know what you like
    - DONT's: Are you open to art that is openly religious, edgy, suggestive, political, or angry?
    4. LOCATION: Decide whether you are willing to accept an international trade or want to keep the mailings within your own country only.
    5. Any other COMMENTS?
    Then, just post your Ďadí here as an invitation to other artists to trade cards with you! REMEMBER, to come back and delete or edit your 'ad' when you are done with your deck!

    (see my first post as an example)


    -Everyone is free to browse the ad listings. When you find one that interests you and you are comfortable with the theme/mediums/limits set, send a private message to the person and arrange the trade details between the two of you, just as you would for any 1-1 trade. Thatís all there is to it!
    -Make sure to leave feedback when it arrives, PM your partner when you send, etc.

    -You do NOT have to swap with everyone who asks, choose the swaps that are most mutually beneficial for each person involved.

    -Be gracious.

    -No artist obligated to trade. We all have different styles and aspects of visual art we are attracted to. Please do not take offense if someone chooses not to trade. Choosing not to trade is not a jugdement on an artist's style or ability. It may be that a particular card does not match another's style. It may be helpful to make enough that the trader has a choice.

    Not sure how to word your listing?
    Hereís a sample:

    Thanks for starting this thread!

    1. THEME: artist's choice - whatever you want! I'm more drawn to the look and composition of a card than its theme.
    2. Needed: Spades : 4,Jack,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,5,7,10,Jack,King
    Hearts : 5,7,9,10,Queen
    Diamonds : 2,6,8,9
    3. Details: As long as you put some care and consideration into what you create, I'm really open. Do adhere your identification to the back of the card. I ask that you use a "real" playing card as the base, and that elements printed from your computer be kept to a minimum.
    - DO's: be yourself and do your best - here and in all things! I'm fine with nudity, religion, adult themes and progressive politics, as well as card that has nothing to do with any of that
    - DONT's: I'd prefer not to have babies, Victorian children, horror/gore, anything hateful toward anyone, or demony/dark arts
    4. LOCATION: I am in California, U.S., and love international trades
    5. Any other COMMENTS? The APCs I'm making are from a U.S. Civil War-era repro deck, and the cards do not list the numbers. So if you want to trade with me keep in mind that I'll be adding the numbers in by hand or via collage.

    I'm trying to collect no more than 1 per artist. So far I've received APCs from beeps, bluelotusflower, bluesybreeze, cairnlae, Cardmama, CastleQueen, catscradle, corduroy cat, craftADDchick, CynthiaSillitoe, Elena, HHC, jensaz, Joss, kesagers, minnkel, Nancy, Neener, NYJunkie, oddbreed, papersaga, Phoenix, pochadiva, RaineyDay, RedHeartStudio, RobbyGirl, schmancyfancy, Sharazoid, Spirit Soul, standnngrace, theweavershand, and Wil Opio Oguto! Thank you all!



    Okay, I can't help myself...I'm going to add a 2nd personal ad!
    1.THEME: naked ladies! A twist on the cultural oddity of nudie playing cards, I am collecting a deck of APCs with female nudity created primarily by women--celebrating the female form in all its shapes, colors and sizes, as something more than a commodity for men's viewing pleasure.
    2. Needed: Spades : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : Ace,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Diamonds : 2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,King
    3. Details: Definitely doesn't have to be a playing card with a naked lady on it before you start to work on it. Any weight of card is ok. Do adhere your identification to the back of the card somehow.
    - DO's: be yourself and do your best - as in all things! All mediums and images of any era welcome. Explore your own issues re nudity and the body and bring them into your art as much or as little as you want to. It doesn't have to be tasteful; an entirely porny image can be reworked into art depending on what you do with it. Scenes of affection with either gender are also welcome. You can also put all my commentary aside and just make something that is pleasing to your eye. (:
    - DONT's: I'd prefer no horror/gore, demonic/dark arts, or grotesque caricatures/innuendos/raunchiness like something out of a teen boy or prison inmate's fantasies
    4. LOCATION: I am in California, U.S., and love international trades
    5. Any other COMMENTS? To rephrase myself, the spirit of this is celebratory and empowering, not degrading. Consider how different nudity is through the eyes of a woman (regardless of her sexual orientation) than through the eyes of a man (regardless of his sexual orientation, as well) by reviewing the imagery marketed to women and to men. And remember, the vintage nudes that we consider tasteful were considered scandalous in their time!

    Thank you for doing this thread, Valerie. This will make it much easier to connect with others who are making APCs.

    2: Needed:
    Spades : Ace,2,3,4,7,8,King
    Clubs : Ace,8
    Hearts : 6,7,9,10
    Diamonds : 7,,Jack,Queen


    Deck 4
    1: THEME: Spirituality (all faiths--Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhism, etc., saints, people praying/worshiping, yoga, verses)

    2 Jokers

    3. Details:
    DO'S: Cards that show care and thought in their making. I like cards that have images that relate somehow to their numbers but it's not necessary (and too hard most times).

    I like nature, birds, foreign/ethnic, vintage, old holy cards, Hindu gods, humor, almost anything that's well done.
    DON'TS: Stickers, unless I can't tell they're stickers. No quick and easy cards please. No overly cutesy.
    4: LOCATION: Florida
    5: COMMENTS: I'm hard to offend so don't hesitate to tell me if you don't like a card I make for you. I also don't mean to offend, so don't take it personally if I don't choose a card you make for me.

    1: THEME: Hearts/Love
    2: Needed:
    Spades: Ace, 2, 3, 4, , 6, , 8, 9, 10, , Queen,
    Clubs: Ace, , 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, , ,
    Hearts: 10
    Diamonds: ,, 3, 4, 5, 6, , 8, , , Jack, Queen, King
    Jokers: , 2

    3: Details: Any heart design, couples in love, quotes about love, valentine-esque designs, etc. are what I am looking for in this deck. What I want on the cards are what you think about when you hear the word 'love', please no negative/cynical takes on it. I want this to be a cheesy, upbeat deck. Please include at least your name on the card somewhere so I'll always remember who made it.

    DO'S: I love images of couples in love (holding hands, sharing a kiss, walking together, etc) and quotes about love. Animals in love is also great because I think that's adorable. I've been known to say, "Awww" at pictures with snails who look like a couple (basically in the same area means a couple to me, haha) so really, any suggestion of love would be appreciated! All mediums are fine, including bulky items (for gems, please add extra padding in the envie). You can cover up the entire card except for the number and suit. Just one number/suit is fine.

    DON'TS: Please, please, please make them happy. That's really the only thing I ask. Love can go both ways, but I'm not too interested in the dark side of it, just the happy pink V-Day kind :p

    2nd Deck
    1: THEME: Women
    2: Needed:
    Spades : ,,,,,6,7,,,10,Jack,,King
    Clubs : Ace,,3,,5,6,,8,,,Jack,,King
    Hearts : ,2,,,5,,,,9,10,Jack,Queen,
    Diamonds : Ace,,,,5,6,7,8,,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Jokers: 1,2

    3. Details: Portraits of women on APCs. It can be full body or just their face. There can be other elements as well as long as the woman is the focus of the piece.

    DO'S: Adult women only please. No children in this deck unless it's a child and a mom. Pin-up and vintage are great. Can be modern too, but no magazine type images. I'd like realistic looking women if they're modern images. I'm really looking for cards that will highlight the beauty of women. Please use real playing cards. They can also be hand-drawn as well if you can do that sort of thing (I cannot :p)

    DON'TS: No full nudes unless it's tasteful/artistic (think Renaissance type nudes).

    3rd Deck
    1: THEME: Daisies
    2: Needed:
    Spades : ,, ,, ,,,,,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Clubs : Ace,,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Hearts : Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,,,,Queen,King
    Diamonds : Ace,2,3,,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King
    Jokers: ,2

    3: Details: Daisies are my favorite flower. There are many different types of daisy flowers. My favorite are African Daisies (they're purple usually) but I love all types.

    DO's: Please feature a daisy on the card. Any media is fine. There can be other elements in the card as well but it has to be clear that it's a daisy on the card.

    DON'Ts: Can't think of anything. Just make sure there's a daisy on it.

    4th Deck
    1: THEME: Anything Goes
    2: Needed:
    Spades: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, , , , 10, Jack, Queen,
    Clubs: Ace, 2, , 4, , 6, , , , 10, , Queen ,
    Hearts: , , , 6, , 8, , 10, Jack, Queen,
    Diamonds: Ace, 2, 3, , 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, , King
    Jokers: 1, 2

    3: Details: Any format, style, or theme you'd like to make. This is the deck for all the awesome cards that don't fit into my other decks but are wonderful and need to be celebrated! I appreciate all cards that you put effort into.

    DO'S: All mediums are fine, including bulky items. If you love it, I probably will. I like colorful, imaginative, and beautiful cards the best They can be overly cutesy, silly, or just plain pretty. Use a real playing card if you can please. It's okay if the card has no number (write it on) as long as the suit is there. They can be on a background over the card or with the full card showing underneath. Either is great.

    DON'TS: No spiders or creepy themes, no blood/horror/violence, no nudity unless it is tasteful/vintage. I'm going to be a preschool teacher so have that in mind when you're trying to think what I'd like, haha. If it's collage, please have more than one element...not just a picture in the middle of a card. Add some text or something if you want to make it a simple design. If you are questioning it, please show me first just to make sure. I'm pretty open but I'm not a fan of horror because I'm a huge baby :p

    4: LOCATION: Sacramento, CA (Intl. trades ok)

    5: COMMENTS: I'll be happy to make you something, either an APC or an ATC, by request. Please send me a message and we'll work something out

    Thumbs up

    Thank-you, Valerie for starting this request thread…it will be fun to work on it!

    Personal Ad for APCS for: WildGoose

    1: THEME: Open
    MEDIA: Open

    2: Needed:
    ANY - just trading for what appeals!

    3. Details:
    DO'S: Please use actual playing cards as the base, with your regular ATC info included on back
    Please also reveal at least 1 card number/suite on the face

    DON'TS: Can’t honestly think of any…since the theme is Open

    4: LOCATION: I’m in Canada …and willing to mail anywhere

    5: COMMENTS:

    Willing to trade an APC card for regular ATC cards

    Would be interesting if somehow the artist could relate the number/face of the card to their chosen subject matter…
    EG:
    3 of spades showing 3 of something, King of Hearts showing the Lion from OZ…ect...but good design and artistic individuality over-rides anything!NATCH!
    See my examples :
    6 of Hearts card that echoes the story of the 6 swans ,the 2 of hearts has 2 lovers, the 3 of clubs has 3 knives being juggled, the Steampunk family of 7 members is on a 7 of spades card.


    Embellishments fine, if they fit in an ATC sleeve

    I’m planning to continue ( albeit as the muse moves me ) to work on a series of decks that are design-wise similar to the 4 Queens ( traded ) shown in the APCS here

    Themes:
    Medieval / Fables / Imaginary Fairy Tale - Renaissance / Verne-Steampunk-inspired

    I have no special decks that I collect.
    These are the cards I need to finish my deck.


    Clubs: Jack
    Hearts: 2

    I will start another deck while I try to finish this one.
    I don't collect themes, just cards I like.

    Kavka's glorious ad for APCs:
    1. THEME: Victorian Men and Women (and Children)
    2. Needed:
    Spades: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, King
    Clubs: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, 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, King
    2 Jokers (make them AWESOME)
    3. Details:
    - DO's: People in fancy clothing from the Victorian era are basically what I'm looking for. Steampunk is welcome. Layers and layers are a total plus. I love anime/manga style art, but if that's not how you roll that's cool too.
    Super duper extra bonus points if you somehow incorporate a character from my webcomic: http://www.necrogenesis.net/
    - DONT's: Babies are freaky so none of that. I'm not wild about stickers unless you can work them in really well. Nothing overtly pornographic or vulgar; but I don't see that much here anyway.
    4. LOCATION: Currently at Rochester, NY and sometimes at Pittsburgh, PA. Internationals are wonderful.
    5. COMMENTS: I'm open to doing more than one card per trade, especially for international trades for bulk postage.

    THEME: Open--I like birds, butterflies, classical dance, vintage botanical or other vintage themes, fairy-tale/nursery rhymes, steampunk, goats! But I'm up for other themes as well.

    NEEDED: Diamonds, Clubs, Spades and Hearts for Jack, King, Queen

    DETAILS: I like collage/mixed media with lots of layers. Please display at least one corner of the number and suit. Please complete the backs similar to a regular ATC.

    DO's: Use a real card base, and family-friendly images/themes

    DON'TS: Nothing too cutesy, and nothing dark/violent, religious, political, sexy, etc.

    LOCATION: Prefer USA only

    COMMENTS: Due to my lack of internet at home, and limited technological expertise I won't be able to post my work here, but take a look in my gallery (a kind friend helped me with that!) to see the kind of work I do.

    Do's handdrawn preferred (can be done on another paper and stcu on to the apc) But will take collage too.
    Don'ts: no stickers or bulky embellishments, no political or overtly religious images, not too wierd -although I do like some wierd!
