June Swaps!

Hello! Last night and tonight I worked on my June Swaps! This time the only requirement I had for everyone was to find something inspirational and base their cards on that. I was reading the newest edition of PaperCrafts Magazine, the Reduse, Reuse and Recycle issue, and I found a tag made by Maren Benedict that I based my cards on. I had made a birthday card for my dad using the same idea, the playing card, so, I decided to find some more and use that as my inspirational piece. I did have a bedspread set in like a sage shadow and choc. chip, but I already did soft sky and choc. chip for our first swap, so I didn't want to do the same thing again. Plus, Maren had an excellent concept of the playing card, so I was excited to utilize this idea again!

For all 6 of these cards, I used Raspberry Tart (SU!) designer paper, Kiwi Kiss ribbon, Pink Pirouette ribbon, Pink Pirouette, Cameo Coral, Rose Red and Old Olive c/s (I am running low on Kiwi Kiss c/s), and Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, and Rose Red ink. Assorted buttons, SU! glitter, rhinestone and cloth brads, hardware, playing cards, All Holidays stamp set (SU!), Whole Family stamp set (Kitchen Sink Stamps), chipboard letters, and a little paper piercing. I also added pink beads, acetate cover and mounting tape and another piece of d.p. to make a shaker card out of the card w/ the glittery "a"!


Happy Stamping!!!


  1. Oooh, super duper cute! I like the playing cards - how fun!

    Cameron has been in daycare, but he's never ridden the bus and gone to school - he'll officially be in Kindergarten this fall... but this is his first time in SCHOOL.

    How's that new baby?

  2. These are super cool Erin, love all of the different elements. It all goes together so nicely. Waiting to hear your big ANNOUNCEMENT


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!
