I am hosting a Stampin’ Up! ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap January 2020! 

Come create little works of art (ATC) and join our swap. They do not need to be all the same, although it does make it easier for you if they are all similar, You can use some of those little bits. And the BONUS is that you will get 9 awesome mini-works of art in return to use in your card-making, display boards, scrapbooks, etc.

An ATC measures 2-1/2″ x  3-1/2″ and is the same size as collectors cards (ie. baseball cards and some playing cards). I introduced ATCs in a prior post (see that POST here) and you can go there for more information and background. You can use a playing card as a base or just cardstock cut to the appropriate measurements. ATCs are a fun way of creating mini-masterpieces to be traded and collected! Now for the rules of this swap.



Must use Stampin’ Up! Current Products from Annual or Mini or Sale-a-bration catalogs. Minor embellishment from retired Stampin’ Up! products or Paper Pumpkin are ok.


You have until January 31st, to get your 9 ATCs in my hands. I will repackage and send 9 back to you on February 4th. 


  2. Create 10 identical ATCs—1 to keep, 9 to swap.
  3. Send 9 ATC to Swap Host (me).
  4. Watch this handy packing VIDEO from thefrolickingfairy.com
  5. Remember to include postage for return in a standard business envelope (2 regular First Class stamps should be enough)
  6. Mail the ATCs, allowing sufficient time for them to reach the host by the due date. (DUE DATE: JANUARY 31, 2020)

Common Business Envelope #10:  Outside Measurement: 4-1/8 x 9-1/2″ and Inside Measurement:3-7/8 x 9-1/4″



ATCs can be flat, folded, shaker, whatever you want them to be. Keep in mind, they need to be on the thinner side for ease of shipping and to enable them to be stored in a plastic card sleeve. For the purpose of our swap, ATC’s should not be thicker than 1/4″. Please use Stampin’ Up! products only and at least 75% should be from current Stampin’ Up! catalogs. 


Notate the following information on the back of your ATCs. To make it easy I have included an ATC Label file in both PDF and WORD. Please print, complete and add to the back of your ATC
