Don’t forget: Artist Trading Cards due in 2 weeks!

Just another friendly reminder to get your Artist Trading Cards in! Submissions are due by March 15 (although if you are running a few days late, please reach out to me, as I can still usually accommodate). Last exchange was the best ever, and I’ve already received lots of submissions already! Just as a teaser, here are some shots of me putting together my cards for this spring exchange:

Creating some lovely blue “rain” drops using water colors… it was sure messy!!!

After I glued on some gray paper clouds, it was time to stamp the text on each card…

So many cards!

Usually as the organizer, I make one for each participant… I got a head-start this time. Fun!

Hope you all find time to participate. Full details can be found on my Artist Trading Cards page.

  1. Hi Jennifer, I’ve been curious about artist trading cards for awhile now. I love making collaged and/or painted small tags and cards. Why are ATCs so popular? How are they different and what do people do with them? Can a person make money doing them? Maybe there’s a resource out there you can recommend if you don’t have time to answer my questions?

    Specifically, I’d like to get my toes wet and send a submission. I’m not sure of your guidelines or expectations. Will you send them to me?

    Thanks! I look forward to seeing what this ATC thing is all about! Judy Miller Magicrayon@aol.com

    1. Hi Judy! Thanks for your comment. ATCs are fun because they are a standard size and are made to share and trade with others, that is their main purpose and I think that’s why they got more popular. My guidelines are pretty loose and can be found here. Hope you can participate!
