Today I’m sharing the second half of the Shoebox Swap cards that our group of hobby stampers created at our last stamping get together. Enjoy!

Mychelle’s card uses the new set called Sheltering Tree. I’ve had a couple of people want to know what the “tent-like” or “kite-like” image is in this stamp set and it is the bicycle frame. That way you can make your bike frame any color you want to which is kind of clever. I love details like that in our Stampin’ Up! stamp sets. Mychelle’s card makes me yearn for spring!

Mary’s card is a gorgeous collage of colors and images from the stamp set called Butterfly Basics. Of course, she did work in some dots from Gorgeous Grunge as that set wants to be in every single collage card possible! The 2014-16 In Colors really complement the Sierra Sand card base and the white really gives these images pop!

Manly cards are always a plus and Mary used Moon Lake to make this one. The Linen Thread, the Deco Label Framelits and the Baked Brown Sugar background go a long way in defining this card as “manly.” This design might be fun to try with our new Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper, too.

Unfortunately, we all too often need a sympathy card and Dawn showed us how versatile the Butterfly Basics stamp set can be. The beautiful fern and the butterflies in this set make quick and beautiful cards. The paper used on the pennant is from the pack called Painted Blooms.

Mary created this lovely card using a Double Dutch Door Fold which shows off the Butterflies Thinlit cut out just beautifully. She also used the stamp set called Butterfly Basics and colored it with her Blendabilities Markers.

This is the inside of Mary’s card. Some of the images are from Papillon Potpourri and the sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration set called Big Day.

Linda created this sweet Valentine with the set called Hey Valentine. You can go heavy or light on the coloring of the fish to suit your mood . . . but no matter what you do, it’s gonna be cute!! I love the tiny pearl bubbles.

Diana used the stamp set called Hello Life to create this darling Votive Holder. Of course, you would never want to use a real candle in vellum holder, but look at how beautifully one of those battery operated votive candles look in this holder! She used the Confetti Hearts Border Punch along the top.

And, here is a peek into the inside of the candle holder so you can get an idea of how it was put together and see the candle. The love sentiment and hearts were stamped and then heat embossed.

And lastly, this was my swap for our Shoebox Swap get together. I’ve already shared it with you along with a how to video that you can see by clicking HERE.
