    DYNAMITE DIES and PERFECT PUNCHES, Due July 10, 2020

    Swap Due Date: July 10, 2020
    Signup/Withdraw Date: July 10, 2020
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: MULTI MEDIA -- Any and all media and techniques are welcome

    DYNAMITE DIES and PERFECT PUNCHES, Due July 10, 2020




    Die cuts are beautiful, and varied.
    Die cuts can add color, texture, interest, and a unique element to an ATC.
    Die cuts are FUN.

    NOTE: I am using the term "die cuts" very loosely. Whether you use a Cricut, or a Sizzix, or Tim Holtz images cut with a die after stamping, or something else, there are a large variety of "die cuts" to be had out there!
    This is an opportunity to use the images that you know others will love. Choose the ones that have been noticed as you use them, or that you think are rare and unusual.

    Each ATC must have at least one die cut, or punch, per card.
    More die cuts and/or punches per ATC is optional.



    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome.
    Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take a magazine image, cut it into a square, glue it onto some colored paper, and call it done. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work --- something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

    NOTE:
    I have been asked about sending in die cuts as well.
    As long as you have dusted out your die cutting machine, and are re-learning how to use it, YES, you may send in baggies of just die cuts in addition to your ATCs featuring die cuts.


    Please include at least five of the same die cuts (or same theme) in one baggie or envelope. You may vary the sizes and colors if possible. If you decide to swap very small die cuts, please include more than five images. It will make it easier to swap fairly.
    Send in as many bags of die cuts as will fit your envelope.
    Be aware of postage, and the fact that the post offices charges extra or envelopes that are thick (over 1/4- inch thick.) All die cuts should be able to fit onto a 2.5 x 3.5 background (ATC Size)
    I will send back the same quantity, of bags, of die cuts, as you send in with your ATCs.

    *Please sign up by posting to this thread.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve. This is for their protection!
    *All groups of die cuts need to be sent in their own plastic sleeves.
    * All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If your ATC is drawn or otherwise created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, such as a cereal box. Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards and in or on each envelope of die cuts. And please write clearly on everything!
    .....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
    * Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.
    .....Please check both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
    http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with the same amount of postage it took to get your envelope to me. Be aware of weight and thickness.

    * Canadian and other International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. Please send $1.00 or 1 "Forever" stamp. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due to me by July 10, 2020. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have misplaced my address, please send me a PM.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    This sounds fun. Do the cards need to have a certain number of die cuts on them?

    You need at least one die cut on each card.
    More die cuts and/or punches per ATC is optional and fun.
