Linda Watson was our “snack” person so she designed her swap to be a cupcake holder. Super cute . . . but I have to admit, my cupcake only found a home in that box for about as long as it took for me to take this picture as I couldn’t wait to eat it!! I love chocolate cupcakes from Grandma’s Bakery!! She used the stamp set called Summer Silhouettes.

Mary Bellis had this wonderful collage card for us to make using some new In-Colors!! We were all tickled to try out “Crisp Cantaloupe,” “Pistachio Pudding,” and “Baked Brown Sugar.” The stamp set Mary used is Clockworks.

This is the inside of the card. I love it when the inside of the card coordinates with the outside of the card. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Trust God.

With Father’s Day coming up, Debby Filiowich created a cute card for us to make featuring a grill. I love the flames!! I put mine up pretty high since I’ve never grilled anything without burning it. My husband trys to keep me away from the grill!! He’s truly the “pro” in that department! The sentiment is from the stamp set called Delightful Dozen.

Sharon Merritt has a whole pack of grandkids so it’s no surprise that she picked the soon to be retired stamp set called Dino-Roar to work with. I loved the idea of creating the circle pattern with Sponge Daubers.

Elizabeth Schwerm’s Shoebox Swap featured a butterfly from a long retired stamp set that Elizabeth still owns. (We never let go of our favorites, do we?) Elizabeth black heat embossed the butterfly onto our cardstock white vellum so all we had to do was color and cut. We colored the butterfly with markers from the backside. I was impressed by how bright the markers showed through to the front side! The sentiment is from Curly Cute.

If you want to make a smaller version of this Butterfly, you can purchase the stamp set called Best of Butterflies through March of 2014. It’s one of the featured images from the past that Stampin’ Up! is highlighting during its 25th Anniversary year.

Irene Boesen featured some great punch art on her Shoebox Swap card. Circles make great wrenches, nuts and bolts. The background is embossed and sponged up and it features the soon to be retired background stamp called “Tool Shed.” Don’t miss your opportunity to get this awesome man stamp before it’s gone!

I’ll have more shoebox swaps to share tomorrow so please stay tuned!!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!! I truly appreciate you!
