Swap Due Date – Thursday, March 25th, 2021
Signup/withdraw Date – None; please just communicate
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of Participants – Unlimited
Media – Mixed Media Collage* (see note below)
Theme – Green Houses (a house-shaped ATC swap)

Several years back, ohhappyday hosted a Greenhouses House-shaped Swap. All those shades of green were gorgeous, and it was such a fun and inspiring swap that I thought it was time to revisit the theme. :) For this swap, you will create house-shaped ATCs predominantly featuring shades of green. You can include other colors as well, but greens should be the main color. Let your imagination inspire you.

*Please note that because this is a "mixed media collage" swap, there must be some elements of collage. Cards cannot be entirely hd/hp or digital. Please let me know if you have any questions.*

Card Guidelines:
1. Each card must be a house-shaped card, cut from a standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
2. Each card must be original and unique. Please don’t send in cards that you’ve swapped/traded in the past or plan on replicating for swapping/trading in the future.
3. Any embellishments must be relatively flat and lightweight.
4. Please send in only work that you have put thought, time, and effort into. Make sure that you are swapping a card you would be happy to receive.
5. Please make sure that cards have a sturdy background and earn the name “card.”
6. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve (please no connecting photo album sleeves without also including individual sleeves).
7. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, and your location.

Mailing Guidelines:
1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
2. If you tape your cards together or onto a sturdy background when mailing, please use an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape. I don’t want anyone’s beautiful artwork to be damaged by tape.
3. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return cards.
4. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns.
5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide one of the following for your returns:
a. One U.S. Forever stamp.
b. One well-concealed $1 bill.
c. $1 payment via PayPal.

*When you are ready to mail your cards, please just private message me for my address. If you have it from an earlier swap, it has not changed.
*iTraders will be given when cards are received by me.
*Please note that cards must be received by the due date. No cards and no communication will result in neutral iTrader. You may withdraw any time before the due date.
*A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is never required. :)
*Please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and You Rocks! for the artists that created your return cards when you receive them.

These are the gorgeous cards I received from the original swap in 2017 (LtoR: many thanks to artists Amapola, Grebricar, and mrubyjean). I hope they inspire you as much as they do me.

I finished my cards in 5 hours. I did take a short break to make my kids a grilled-cheese dinner. They had to eat in front of the TV because Mom's art supplies took over the kitchen table. ((grin))

I loved this swap. 3 of my 4 cards have an opening part that reveals a secret message or picture. 3 of my 4 cards include a pressed flower. I hope the recipients enjoy, hostess included.

Here is my new "redeemed" set. I foolishly misunderstood the rules, so I have added the required collage elements to my original hd/hp set. The glued on bits are texture in the chimney areas, some shelf edges of narrow ribbon, and some of the flowers are collaged images.

Beautiful cards, luckycat! I was just reading your description in the gallery and was trying to spot the cellophane. Is it the windows of the greenhouse?

Correct, TSMarie! I drew out the house framework details, then painted in the greenery, then laid down the cellophane, then applied the puffy paint to it like the metal framework of a greenhouse.

SEE everyone agrees with me about the alien and dragon card. I am going to look through my postage stamps and see if I can find some green tones. Great idea.

Just wanted to pop in & say “Hi!” I’ve read everyone’s posts & seen all the awesome ATCs completed so far... Can’t wait to be surprised by which ones I end up receiving! I’m still working on mine (verrrry slowly). I have the house shapes cut out & the mixed media backgrounds done so now it’s just a matter of adding my collage elements. I have Monday off (no work YAY!) so I’m hoping to complete them then!

I love your green butterfly houses. I sure would love one. Since they are all mildly similar I would be so happy with any of them. But I do prefer my house vertical vs horizontal, hmm no wait. I tend to get cards that way. Maybe I dont prefer them that way. I might need to broaden my house horizons. Anyway I love the big butterfly on all of them.


I am kind of hoping to get any of these, which means I should finish my cards to get any houses back.
I already made all my house Vertical. I might play around with a few horizontal cards soon.

Could someone tell me how to post photos from my phone?

I take photos with my phone, and then send them to my FLICKR.com account. I edit the photos before sending. THEN I down load the images to my MAC computer. I can either up load to my gallery or do the go advanced option on a post and upload them to a post.

So all that to say that if you are accessing this website with your phone, I have NO CLUE. AND I am sure there is an easier way to do this, but I am happy with my process.

I do know I could attach my phone to my computer, but GAH!!! it would then load all my photos on my phone, and that is not what I want.
