I’m hosting 2 separate card swaps, you can sign up for either or both. They are both due on December 28. here are the details:


This swap is for FULL CARDS


Stampin Up Clear Envelope #102619

  • Theme: New Catalog Pre-Order products
    • All supplies/products MUST be current and pre-order Stampin’ Up! merchandise with an emphasis placed on the NEW products.
    • NO retired, Holiday Catalog, clearance rack or non-SU! product.
  • All swaps should be designed for upsell opportunities with our clients – please use layering and accessories. These cards should be the kind that make our customers want to make it themselves.
  • Please do your very best work, clean cuts, straight layers, evenly stamped solid images.
  • Attach or write your name and contact info (label) on the back of each card. Supply lists and details are optional and always appreciated.


  • How many cards do I make of the same design?
    • Occasions swap – make 11, receive 10 back
    • SAB swap – make 6, receive 5 back
  • Can I make more then 1 set of cards?
    • You may sign up for up to 3 groups BUT you MUST make a different design for EACH group.
  • What is the standard card size?
    • A standard card size is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ (folded in half) OR 11″ x 4-1/4″ (folded). You card may vary in size (for example 6×6). However, an ATC size and tags are not acceptable substitutes.
  • Where do you get the clear envelopes?
    • We sell them in the catalog #102619. All swaps MUST be in a Stampin’ Up! clear envelope, ready to display upon receipt. If SU! doesn’t sell the envelope, you may not use it.
  • I’m participating in another swap, can I use the same design?
    • No. Swap card designs MUST be exclusive to this swap
  • I’ve never done a card swap before and I’m nervous I’ll make a mistake
    • See the video of a past swap below to help illustrate how it is done.
  • Where to I sign up?
    Sign up is on Facebook, there are 2 different links. 1 for each catalog.


Any swaps received after that date will be returned unopened.
Mail them early to avoid last minute stress.



1) Place each individual swap card in a Stampin Up Clear Envelope:
2) Place each group of swap card in a gallon sized zip lock bag.
IMPORTANT: Mark your NAME on each bag.
**Only include ONE Group of Swaps in each gallon ziplock bag.

3) You MUST include a SELF-ADDRESSED, POSTAGE PAID Return Envelope. I highly recommend using the USPS Flat Rate Priority envelopes. Please do not use the small priority boxes, your return swaps may not fit.

  • You can use click and ship labels on USPS.com. OR go to the Post Office.
    • USPS.com asks what date you are mailing and only gives 4 days out. This date isn’t important, you can still use it on your return envelope even if it’s weeks later.
    • Please make sure return postage is attached to envelope.
    • DO NOT send money
    • DO NOT send loose postage in the envelope
    • The only thing in the envelope upon arrival should be zip locked bags with your name on them and filled with swaps. They are all opened at once and grouped anything additional in the envelope original will be thrown away.
  • If you are participating in multiple swaps, you may mail them all in the same package.


If you don’t receive the message, email me at tami@stampwithtami.com
