Altered Playing Cards by Request !
Swap Coordinator:FingersInc (contact)
Swap categories: Artist Trading Card (ATC) 
Number of people in swap:16
Location:Other
Type:None
Last day to signup/drop:October 18, 2007
Date items must be sent by:November 8, 2007
Number of swap partners:3
Description:

International Swap of 3 Altered Playing Cards to 3 different partners ( total of 9 APCs to make) but with a twist, please read on.

I have traded a number of Altered Playing Cards ( same size as ATCs), and have nearly an entire "deck". I think there are others like me that would like to have specific parts of their suits also. For this swap, please list below what APCs ( suit and number or King, Queen, Jack, Joker etc.) that you would like to have to fill out your "deck". Your partners can then go to your list, and make APCs to help you out !
I understand that you may ask for a 5 of hearts, and all 3 partners may send you 5 of Hearts, but that would be fun too! Please be "gentle" in your requests, I don't want to overwhelm any one on this. I am also giving extra time between partner assignment time, and due date to allow your partners to make your requests. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! Newbies are welcome with promises to play nicely !

I don't have a specific request, just getting back into ATCs and think this would be fun (and I have cards to alter already), so here I am. So, if you get me you can send any cards from the deck you'd like - they'll be the beginning of my deck.

FingersInc 09/ 3/2007 #

Any cards are fine by me.

I need hearts and diamonds. Thanks!

Tiiamaria 10/14/2007 #

I don't have any spades so they'd be nice!

Cocoa 10/15/2007 #

Cocoa 10/15/2007 #

Not a 77 but a 7 of diamonds. sorry!

Xebby 10/16/2007 #

I don't have any face cards but I'd be happy to add any kind of card to my collection.

ATCarol 10/17/2007 #

I have never altered playing cards before but want to join the game so "deal" me in with any cards. Sounds fun. Are there any specific rules for playing cards? Does a certain part of cards have to show? Any suggestions I will be happy to have. ATCarol

alteredpaperdreams 10/17/2007 #

These will be the start of my altered card deck! I'm so excited to play!!! :)

Xebby 10/18/2007 #

I just thought of one I'd really like to receive, the joker card.

FingersInc 10/18/2007 #

ATCarol and all: I don't think there is any specific "rules". For myself, I think that the top left corner showing the number and the suit is the only thing that really needs to be left showing. But I've received APCs that have stickers of hearts over the 8 hearts of hearts for instance, and I've also received a regular size ATC with a smaller playing card attached to the front if it that was really a cute idea! Pretty much what you'd find on an ATC can be done to an APC just so you can figure out what number and suit it is, is fine.

moxsapphir 10/18/2007 #

Any card would be fine for me! I am just starting.

ATCarol 10/19/2007 #

Are all decks of cards the same dimensions? I found a deck I thought I would alter but when I measure the cards they are 2 1/4 by 3 1/2. Aren't playing cards supposed to be the same size as ATCs???

Ratmomma 10/19/2007 #

I will take any suit or number.

Rillaith 10/22/2007 #

OK, so I've got...

Tiiamaria - any Spades
Xebby - Joker or any J/Q/K
Redwing480 - any of the list Hearts--6, 9, 10, J, & K; Spades--A, 3, 4, 6, 10, J, & K; Diamonds--5, 8, J, Q, & K; Clubs--A, 3, 4, 9, J, & K

Glad to see another mad cat woman in my list - you pip my 5 with your 6! ;) (I wonder if I have any good cat stuff for decorating...)

Rillaith 11/ 8/2007 #

I'm really sorry to my partners, but I am running a couple o days behind with swaps at the moment due to an excess of work in non-work hours (i.e. my normal crating time, and I sorely miss it!) over the last couple of weeks. I will try and get these done tonight, but if I can't (I have some ATC swaps to finish too, with a slightly earlier deadline), then I'm afraid I won't get to finish them before Monday, as I've cut down on sleep to get this lot done, but I wanted to let my partners know there may be a short delay in posting, and to apologise for it too.

Rillaith 11/26/2007 #

I found this really hard! I'm not very happy with my APCs, they feel too plain, but nothing else seemed to "work". It's taken me longer than it should have as a result, so my already late cards are even later. Fiddlesticks! In the mail today, at last, with a little something extra to apologise.
