May Swaps & Inspiration Part 3

Hello all!  I hope you had a wonderful Memorial weekend.   Matt and I spent 2 days clearing out the office and moving the furniture around.  I’ve had enough of cords, papers and dust bunnies to last me a while.  Anyway, that project took longer than anticipated (don’t they all?)  so I’m a day behind posting my new Stampin’ Up Paper Shares!    Be looking for it tomorrow here on the blog.  I’ve received so many emails asking if I’m doing them again this year and YES! I love doing it and can’t imagine missing a year.  I can’t believe I’ve been doing them 9 years now!

While you are waiting for me to get my numbers and links up for the share samplers,  here are a few more swaps I’ve received:

Regina Clark made this rad 80’s gift card holder using a cassette tape case.  So fun!  Can’t wait to use it!

Jan Burnett created this sweet Graduation gift card holder – love the rolled up diploma!  She folded the end of the card stock up on the inside to hold the money or gift card.  Look for this stamp set returning in the new SU catalog called Pure Gumption, page 52!

Card Base Pop N Cuts (yes, carrying over into the new SU catty) makes a great grad card, too!  Rolanda Patton made this one.

Above is the front, and below is what is looks like open:

So clever!  Laura Milligan cut out the flower shape from the hexagon pattern in the Tea For Two paper.  She layered it on a paper doily and then added a little bee in the middle.  I wonder how many hexagon flowers she got from one sheet of 12 x 12 paper?  None are pieced together on my card so it really looks great.

Linda Barnes made this pretty card, which pictures just do not do justice.  The designer paper under the Apothecary cut out is called Epic Day, which is a new designer paper.  It’s a subtle map with vellum punched butterflies.

Ok, I hope that inspired you to go stamp something!  Linda
