August Creative Images Pics

Hi, there. It’s time to post the pics from the August meeting of my stamp club, Creative Images. This will be a little hard for me as I wasn’t there, but Therese took the pics and Pam actually remembered who did most of them and without the list I usually make! Way to go, Pam! Someone with a memory! August’s exchange card theme was “Teapots and Teacups.” So here goes!

This one is Connie’s three teacups on a pretty paisley background. I think Connie is a new member brought to us by Holly!


This is Holly’s Mad Hatter’s tea party card. Love the little brads she finished this off with.


This is Linda’s stack of teacups, just because!


This one is Lona’s primary colors with three tiny teapots. I spy SU’s large and scalloped oval punches!


This card is my mystery card. I have no idea who did it and haven't been able to find out. Lovely watercoloring job mounted on the Cuttlebug Textile (I think) embossing folder.


Here’s Pam’s three lovely teapots inviting a friend for a cuppa tea.

This last one is Ursula’s three teacups. I can’t tell if she chalked or sponged in using a template, but that’s what it looks like from the pic. If I’m wrong, she can let me know.


Linda did the project for August, something totally different. Therese gave me some kits to make them, but no instructions. I won’t have time to figure it out for a while, but Pam sent me a picture of her completed card.

Pam's project

Pam said everyone was covered with glue when they were done. The background is fabric and so is the butterfly, with glitter finishing it off.

Last, but not least, here’s a couple pics of an egret that came calling at my house Saturday. He was just strutting along the fence, enjoying an evening smorgasbord of bugs. His neck goes from a coiled up “S” to almost straight up. Amazing!

He was pickin’ ‘em up and puttin’ ‘em down when he decided he was done posing!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the colours in Connie's teacups card. The brads on Holly's card are beautiful... I need them! Everyone's teacup cards are beautiful :) I love your birdie visitor.

Thanks for all the credit, Kathy, no pipe cleaners on the butterfly just used a coppery glitter glue that Linda provided. Gotta love technology, tho. How else would you get all the pix?

These cards are just great. What wonderfully creative ideas with tea cups and pots. I just love reading your blog, and all your cute and funny comments on all the cards. You just keep me coming back for more.
What great pics of the Egret, their necks are amazing.
