Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous ATCoins. I love receiving from you! Your prints are delightful. My favorite is the purple daisy on the blue/green paper. Stunning! The sun on the deli paper is ephemeral and has so many layers and luscious gold highlights. Beautiful! And finally the vintage lady is appreciated because she is so delicately done. I rarely stamp on my backgrounds and you do such a great job. So thanks again for such beautiful coins for my collection. Stay safe and healthy and enjoy your gardening. :). <3<3<3

Comment: Thanks so much for a bright colorful PC. I enjoy receiving colorful postcards; I'm just not very good at putting bright colors together. I hope your little towhee family thrives this year. We had, I think, 3 nesting of European Starlings in the nests in our saguaro cactus. Such loves. Happy swapping.

The way you used the tea bags as base for Gelli printing and also stamping is too cool! I love how the printing looks on those. Gonna have to add that to my repertoire for sure! Oh, and the postage stamps you used on the envie are awesome! Thanks so much for another excellent swap! <3 <3 <3

Comment: First of all, I love the postcard. You selected super cool pieces and put them together well. Second of all, isn't it funny how swapbot decides to always pair two people? I mean, lucky for me that you've sent to me - what, 3 or 4 times in the last few weeks. Gina and I often send to each other too even though there are plenty of others in the swaps. Anyway, thank you. I love it and i love the green note. :-)

Comment: Hi Penelope! Thank you for the fabulous blue postcard. I LOVE sharks and yes, the shark stayed intact on its journey through the US mail. LOL. I like the blue swirl things. Is that a rubber stamp or a stencil? That's cool. Thanks again.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it :) The small blue swirls are a rubber stamp. There are five circles on the stamp -- it is either RubberMoon or Viva Las Vegas...Thank you for the great rating and the heart :)

Response: You're very welcome! Thank you for the great rating and the heart :) The weather was pretty great considering we were at the coast. On our fourth day, there were 18-25 ft. swells and waves were coming over the embankment and into the campsites closest to the beach. It was incredible to watch the power of the waves and they pushed and pulled huge logs and beams on and off the shore.

Comment: Wonderful stamped postcard, perfect for an early spring day. I really liked how you double stamped the ferns with different shades of green, it adds depth to the image. And such a clever use of the petal stamp to create the flower. Pattern stamps are so versatile! Thanks for a Good Mail Day.

Comment: Guess what finally arrived! 2+ weeks from Seattle. Not cool to make us worry. I think all the postal workers were admiring your gorgeous envelope! :) I love the bird card. The rust and teal night sky is exquisite and the moon is beautifully subtle. I am excited to check out some of the new paints/textures you have used. The baked textures are gorgeous. And I definitely want to try the micaceous iron oxide. Thanks for the big sample print to play with! It is very cool. So once again I am lucky to add two more of your lovely cards to my collection. They were definitely worth the wait!! <3<3<3
Response: Thank you so much for the great rating and the heart! This response is super late, and I apologize for that. Happy New Year!

Comment: I don't know how your cards keep getting better and better when each of your swaps is exceptional. I keep all of your greetings cards but this one is a favorite. I do lots of leaf printing in the fall but never thought to use some ferns. DUH! I will give that a go! Your ATCs are gorgeous -- I always go to nature for my inspiration. Your leaf prints are beautiful, esp. the blue and green fairy fern. Such delicious delicacy. I love your seed pod stencil, and the color palettes, and the quotes. Perfect package of goodies. Including yet another bioluminescent postage stamp. You ROCK!! :) <3<3<3
Response: You are too kind, Michele! I am so pleased you liked what I sent :) I had great fun figuring out how many different ways I could use my fern fronds! Thank you for the great rating and heart and for continuing to host this wonderful swap <3<3

Comment: Good golly what an awesome swap package! Stellar envelope and presentation (as usual). Thanks so much for the gorgeous bioluminescent postage stamp! (and penguins!) The greeting card is STUNNING! I have to start using die cuts on my gelli prints (instead of just placing them on top of the print). The turquoise gold and white combo is spectacular. Then I get to the actual cards ... and they are amazing. Great prints and quotes and I love the cute critters you played with in this round. And the wash tape raindrops -- brilliant! I am always thrilled to see mail art from you heading my way. Don't ever worry about "same old same old". You always teach me new tricks and inspire me. Have yourself a glorious summer! <3<3<3
Response: Apparently I am terrible at responding to ratings -- I didn't realize how far behind I was :( Thank you so much for your kind compliments about my cards :) It is always a fun challenge to think of new ideas for this swap :) I have a slight addiction to digital stamps and that dog is one of my favorites :)

Comment: There you go stamping on your prints again! With absolutely perfect results. I LOVE the little girl and her quote. lol And you are right, the blue side is spectacular. I'm glad you left it unadorned. The sparkle quote is one of my favorites and I like you little vintage dancer. And thanks for the reminder to use some of my punchella -- I have a ton of that stuff. As always, I am beyond thrilled to add some of your beautiful cards to my collection! <3<3<3
Response: I have an entire roll of punchinella, and I rarely think to use it. I tend to drag it out when I am desperate and can't think of anything else to use. Thank you for continuing to host this swap -- it's my favorite! And thank you for the great rating and the heart!

Comment: OK I need to start making my own printed envelopes. Yours are always so bright and inspiring! (Thanks for the beautiful postage stamps too!). Your cards are exceptional. It is so fun to swap with you! I'm partial to black birds and the back of that card is really interesting. It almost looks like you outlined the white elements but it is just how the paint ridged up? Very cool. The quote print on the other card -- yellow and blue with the purple over-print -- is a wonderful color palette. And both quotes are excellent. Definitely ones to ponder. I am SO thrilled to add these cards to my collection. <3<3<3
Response: Thank you for the kind compliments, the great rating, and the heart :) Making envelopes from prints is probably my all time favorite way to use them! I have the We R Memory Keepers envelope punchboard, which makes it super easy. You are correct about the paint ridging up :) I'm glad you like the quotes -- I love searching for new ones :)

Comment: Thank you for sending me such a fabulous swap! I love the envelope -- so bright and cheery -- and the striking greeting card print and stencil cutout -- I am so stealing that idea! -- and the cool starlight washi tape! :) But then it really gets good .... your gorgeous cards. I really appreciate your gelli prints as textured eye candy. Lots of interesting detail. Very inspirational "Just Do It" quote and lovely snowflake haiku. But my favorite thing of all is your moonlit tree artwork -- stunning color and composition. I am displaying it on an easel in my art room for the winter. Here's wishing you beautiful holidays. Hope to see you again swapping in January. <3<3<3
Response: Thank you so much for the great rating and the heart! I'm so pleased you liked everything!The stencil cutout is actually a die from Tim Holtz. He did several sets. I believe they are called mixed media dies. I was very happy with how the tree and moon card turned out, and I am glad you liked it too! Have a wonderful Christmas, and I will definitely be participating next month :)

Response: Thank you for the great rating and the heart! I'm so pleased you liked the card. I buy dies wherever I can...I am a bit of an addict! That die is from a set of four that I found on Amazon. It is Sizzix brand and there is a second set of four with different designs too. If you want more info on the dies, send me a message :) Happy Swapping!!

Comment: Your beautiful inspiration cards arrived today in a postal body bag. :( But luckily they arrived in decent condition (thank you for encasing them all in plastic!!). I've always like that Earth/nature quote and the embellishments you used are perfect. The Poe card is exceptional. Excellent quote and lovely gelli prints. Love the swirls around his head. No worries about the flaw (my DH says it is just one of the invisible head daggers Poe had to deal with on a daily basis). I hadn't seen that quote before and really like it! Thanks for the extra prints too. I have to get into the studio in December and get myself a stock for next year's cards. Here's wishing you joyous and safe holidays. Looking forward to swapping with you again in the New Year. <3<3<3
Response: Thank you for the great rating and the heart! It is always a pleasure to send to you :) I was beginning to worry about them, but I'm glad they made it undamaged!! Your husband's insight is perfect! Poe was definitely a tormented soul. The Poe quote is one of my favorites : ) I hope your holidays are filled with lots of love and peace <3 I'm looking forward to more swaps after the first of the year!

Not only are the prints themselves beautiful, but the envies are impeccably constructed and look and feel so high quality! I'm so impressed! And then you wrote such a nice note inside a lovely handmade card AND included thoughtful extras as well (in addition to the extra envies you made)--I feel quite thoroughly spoiled. This was a special and memorable swap indeed! Thank you so much. <3

Comment: Ohhhh I am so lucky when I receive cards from you! They are always exceptional. Both cards are great but I love love love the rabbit one. Very cool stamp and beautifully done on that pastel subtle background. And the flip side -- with the netting pattern -- is perfect for the quote. Great job! Glad you are still harvesting -- all done here. Not the best garden weather this year. And I am right there with you scrounging for prints. I have to carve out some time to get a stash together for next year's cards. Glad your teaching is going well though (that is really more important lol). Thanks for another great swap! <3<3<3
Response: Michele, you are too kind with your compliments! The rabbit card was my favorite as well :) I finally managed to find time to make some prints, but then used them all for envelopes, lol!

You were right to leave the wood-grained side unembellished -- that print is gorgeous. I love the feather die-cut. I will have to be on the lookout for that one. Your gel prints have amazing depth of color. I am in awe! :) Have yourself a fabulous road trip. Wish I were joining you. Outside of Muir Woods you are going to my favorite spot on Earth. Enjoy!! <3<3<3
Response: I'm so happy you like them! I was worried they were boring. The feather die is Spellbinders, and it is a set of 6 different shapes and sizes. I am super excited to be going to Glacier.

Comment: I love everything about these gorgeous bookmarks (and card!). Your style is so artful, I love how you embellished with inks and pen, what a great idea! I am going to love using these to mark my place in my art books. Your handwriting is really nice, love that fine line you wrote with. Thank you for the lovely swap!
Response: I'm so happy you like everything! I love mark making and how it can change a print! Thank you for the compliment on my handwriting. I love penmanship and hand-lettering! The pen is a Pentel Slicci, and the size is .25 I found them at Fred Meyer in a two-pack. It writes beautifully and doesn't smear which is important to me as a lefty! Thank you for the great rating and the heart :) Happy Swapping!

Comment: Wow! What kind (brand) of acrylic paints do you use? Your colors and details are so crisp and bright (I struggle to avoid muddiness in my prints). Both of your cards are striking -- lovely quotes, artistic text presentation, beautiful color combinations. But the green/purple card is my favorite! Gorgeous color palette and the white detailing is intricate and sharp. I will love having these cards in my collection! Thank you! <3<3<3
Response: Hi, Dobie! Sorry for the delay in replying. My teacher's union went out on strike a little over a week ago, so I've been busy picketing. Thank you for your kind compliments on my work :) I use a variety of acrylics, but my favorites are Golden Fluid Acrylics. I also use some really inexpensive brands such as Pebeo Studio Acrylics, Maimeri Acrylics, and Michael's store brand Artist's Loft. I have found the best way to get crisp prints is to not have too much paint on the plate. I'm so glad you love the cards. I certainly love making them :) Thank you for the great rating and the heart!

Comment: Thank you for both cards (like the green/black card a lot ^_^) and the note cards. Which technique did you used on the envelopes? I like it and I like your handwriting too:-))
Response: Hi, Lucine. I am so glad you like everything!! I have a gelli plate that I use for making mono prints on card stock, which I then make into envelopes. You can do a google search for gelli print and gelli plate and see lots of examples, videos, tutorials, etc. I liked the green and black card a lot, too :) Thank you for the compliment on my handwriting. Hand lettering is something I really enjoy, and I am always trying new techniques and ideas :) Thank you very much for the rating and the heart :)

Comment: I received your beautiful mail art envelope today - very awesome I might add. I love how you presented everything, first with tissue and snippets of washi tape, and then with the string tying the envies and other goodies together. I have a friend who does the gelli-print technique, but I've never tried it. Now I'm excited to have some envies that you made - love them! :) The mini envies are great too, and what fun - you put mini notes inside. The cute stickers were a nice touch, as was your handwritten letter. What a WONDERFUL mail day it was for me today. Thank you!! :)
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed everything! I am addicted to my gelli plate and to making envelopes :) I hope you have fun using them!! Thank you very much for the rating and the heart :)

Comment: Thank you Penelope for the nice note, random acts of happiness, the "heart sticker," and the recipe. I'm very anxious to try it. And, by the way, you need not apologize for folding the recipe, you went to extra measures and I truly appreciate your effort! Also, we have been fixing vegetarian meals--something I never thought my husband would accept. :) Take care--best, Debby
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I hope you enjoy the recipe as much I as do. Thank you for the rating and the heart :)
