June SUper Friends Swap Cards

We ended up with only a few days to prepare for our June SUper Friends swap, because we held it earlier than usual so we could have our gathering before school let out.  I think you'll agree that everyone came up with pretty amazing cards in that short time!

Here's Jana's clever card creation, using Sea Street and Maritime Designer Series Paper.  The "Oh Snap" is from the Hip Notes Stamp Set.

And, here's the inside:

Jana also gave me this beautiful bonus card:

She used the Work of Art stamp set to create the grass and sky, and the flowers are from the Flower Shop Stamp Set (punched with the Pansy Punch).

Agnes created this wonderful, masculine card for Father's Day:

We were happy to have Liz join us again, and she made this elegant and eye-catching, clean and simple card:

Liz stamped her card with Perfect Pennants and Starburst Sayings (cut with the coordinating framelits).  
For my card, I decided to create a card using the "Happy Father's Day" stamp from May's Paper Pumpkin kit and with a dress shirt created with a cut-off onesie using the Baby's First Framelits. The tie is also cut with a die from Baby's First Framelits, and I created the collar using the Banner Punch (first I punched out the banner, then put it on top of the piece to be die cut for the shirt, and lined up the onesie die on top of that, then cut that all out in the Big Shot at once).  I created two variations of the card (main difference is the color ink used to stamp the "Happy Father's Day,"  though the direction of the designer paper and the color of Candy Dots also differs in these two).  The designer paper is Lullaby.

Which do you like best?

Thanks so much for visiting!
