Thumbs up **THE FINAL 5 ARE POSTAL!!! 5+1 ANCIENT ATC SWAP**

Iíve been having such a lovely time participating in swaps with the talented ladies on here that Iíve decided to host one of my own. I LOVE history and I find that many ladies on here enjoy it as well. Iím so eager to see the talent that will come from this swap! This is an Ancient ATC 5+1 Swap! Are you fascinated by the Pyramids of Egypt, the Coliseum in Rome, Terracotta Soldiers in China or the Castles of Ireland? If so, then this is the swap for you! This swap is not limited to structures, however, so use your imagination! Maybe Nefertiti here or Julius Caesar there!

Use stamped images, collage by using magazines or pieces of books, use ephemera that you Google or download, hand draw or paint....the possibilities are endless and the results have been unbelievable in the past swaps! I welcome (but NOT require) you to number your cards on the back, i.e. 1 of 6, 3 of 6, etc. I also welcome you to put a signature/stamp on the back. Again, these are NOT required, but welcomed.

No Vendor product requirements...however, please use at least two layers of good quality cardstock so you have a nice firm base for your ATC. Please do your very best work and swap something you think someone will be pleased to receive. One embellishment is required, but youíre welcome to use more than one!

This is a 5+1 swap- meaning you will send in 6 images and receive 5 in return; the +1 is for the hostess, thatís me! You will not receive one of your own cards back so please make one for yourself.

GOING POSTAL: Place your ATCís in a Ziplock bag with the Swap name, your real name and your SCS name. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case itís needed. DO NOT send metered postage as we all know they only work for day of purchase!

No sign-up deadline, but must be received by 7/15/2009. I will try to send them postal by 7/20/2009. (I will keep you ALL posted if that day changes). If you need to drop out, that is fine; life happens but I don't have the time to PM 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. PM me if you have to drop out and Iíll let everyone know and do the proper adjustments in the original post.

Please donít hesitate to post questions to this thread. I welcome all advice- especially that this is my very first time hosting a swap. Welcome all swappers to post messages and make friends during the swap. Most of all: HAVE FUN! I know I will!

Okay, I am going to chose Mary Magdalene. Not for religious reasons but that she is a well-known FEMALE historical figure. I found out some interesting facts about her that will be easy to show in an ATC!

Yeah! And - I decided what on! Northwest Coast Native American Art, ie. totem poles, button blankets, masks, petroglyphs. I'll think further yet. Thanks!

I would love to join this one! I have some great stamps, including the retired SU Petroglyphs set that does not get enough use. Ah, the creative juices are already flowing. This is a great idea for a swap!

I am not nervous about hosting. I seem to check in every hour so that won't be a problem. Within the first few days of discovering ATC making I had a list of themes I want to host. However, I have to finish up what I'm signed up for so I'll probably post my first host in June.

And being new at this, I signed up for a lot because I want to grow and learn... so JESS set a date on the calendar and if we do it here or there... an overnighter maybe as well, but that would be like two different things.

Nefertiti.


Okay, I've made up my miind... and I"m talking real ancient (if you allow it)...

I know, I know, not what you were thinking, but they ARE Ancient! Let me know if these are unacceptable and I will readjust accordingly.

I've also kept meaning to PM this to you Leslie. It's a great template to help keep track of your swaps. It can be tweeked for hostess use as well. I'm going to do that tonight. I'll send you the hostess one i create too.

Thank you! That's a great idea. One of the ladies told me that it might be good to set up an Excel Spreadsheet as well. I just have my swaps taped up on my wall in front of my scrapbooking desk! LOL! When I send them in, I write the date that I sent them and put them in a bin. (I guess I could do an Excel sheet and put all of that down AND the date it was received.)

I haven't been able to do too much since my computer is down. I'm at work now....ssssshhhhh. I'm busy, so I can only do so much.

Not mine. Some people do, some people don't. Mostly it's a matter of preference. Some hosts may specifiy or clarify that they want all identical or not Hosts are not going to not allow you to participate if you do the work, send them in and they're all the proper theme, embellished as required EXCEPT they're not identical, and likewise I cannot think of a single good reason for them to be turned away if they all do match, especially if they didn't specify either way. I'd get real bored real fast if I had to make them all the same. Also, by definition, artist trading cards are original works of art. However, in the art community what that means is that it IS the original. Lithographs and prints are numbered prints of an original. I write on mine 1 of 10 designs, 2 of 10 designs so it is clear that each piece is a one-of-a-kind. Also, a collection of ATCs, when they're originals, that's worth more (internally) than oh, yeah, someone made a hundred of these and I got one.

My two cents. Others will disagree. As I said, preference.

Default Bumping

Thank you Terri & Melissa for the bumps!

I'm with my boyfriend and I'm on his laptop (which is small), so forgive me for not typing too much! LOL!

I miss my own computer.

Hey, so I am confused, I have never completed an ATC swap before ... are all the cards the same?
I make mine the same, unless the hostess specifies otherwise. They are not exactly the same because they are handmade so the stamping may be slightly off, DP shows different parts of the pattern, and the coloring will be slightly different as well. I usually pick my favorite in each swap and pm the artist to let them know how much I loved their work, and I always keep one of my own, so, for me it's easier to keep them the same. It's also a good discipline if you are commissioned to make cards or party favors which are expected to be the same. But, I agree with PinkBeauty, it should be up to the hostess first, then the individual artist.
