SWAP: New Stamp Sets not on the Pre-Order – Full Card Swap – Due June 28

NEW STAMP SET CARD SWAP

Due June 28
11 Full Card Swap

Customers and demonstrators alike can begin ordering the entire new 2019-20 Stampin’ Up Catalog beginning Tuesday, June 4. We’ve just finished up a card swap in May for the “pre-order” sets from this catalog. Now it’s time to make some swaps with the rest of the new stamp sets. I will be hosting a new card swap in June for new stamp sets (not previously released, or on the pre-order) in the new catalog.

LIST OF PRE-ORDER STAMPS

Since we’ve already done a pre-order swap, this swap will be for NEW stamp sets NOT on the pre-order. Here’s a list of what was on the pre-order in case you aren’t sure. Please don’t use these for this swap:

  • A Good Man
  • A Little Lace
  • Above the Clouds
  • Believe You Can
  • Bloom & Grow
  • Butterfly Wishes
  • Delightful Day
  • Floral Essence
  • Free as a Bird

How to Mail

Step 1: Place each individual swap card in a Stampin Up Clear Envelope:
http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=102619
Step 2: Place each group of swap card in a gallon sized zip lock bag. Mark your name on the outside each ziplock bag. Only include ONE Group of Swaps in each gallon ziplock bag.

Step 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.

ADDRESS WILL BE PROVIDED IN PRIVATE FB MESSAGE

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


FAQ

  • How many cards do I make of the same design?
    • Make 11, receive 10 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 considered 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, tags and bookmarks are not acceptable substitutes.

  • I’m participating in another swap, can I use the same design?
    • No. Swap card designs MUST be exclusive to this swap
  • I’m a customer, can I participate in this card swap?
    • Yes, but the swap is designed for demonstrators to use as display samples and workshop/class ideas so you will need to adhere to the guidelines above. That includes using the Stampin up clear envelopes (not off brand) and no retired products.
  • 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.
