March Creative Images Meeting

Wow, has it been a month already?  Time flies when you’re feeling poorly, I guess.  I couldn’t make it to the March meeting, but had lots of trusty help getting pictures taken for this blog.  I also managed to turn in my exchange card and challenge project. 

The exchange card theme this month was a “kid card” and the challenge projects were made out of cocktail napkins we’d picked out two months ago.   As always, click on any picture to see it in detail.  So here goes.

Connie’s kid card uses these bright crayons, a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a cute little “box” for the crayons.

Ella made this giant “h” out of what I think is the negative of a chipboard letter laid over some DSP.  Recycling!

Ella's H

I made another little Sweet Treat cup card with jelly bellies and the slide back so you can get them without destroying the card.  Matched the cardstock to the jelly bellies!

Kathy's Balloon

Gale made this card with a family of die cut bears popped up with up stuff.

Gale's Bears

Holly made this little watercolored (?) cutie and her cupcake, which I think is a brad.

This is Jeannie’s cute little giraffe, gold embossed and fussy cut.

This is Pam’s hoppy froggie.  Hey, Pam.  He needs googly eyes!

Lona made this cute little dress card with a template.

Therese went for a slightly older kid card, but a chocoholic teenager is still a kid.  Love the rose brad in her hair!

Therese's Teen

Rosie used punches and SU’s Top Note die to make this cute little bunny card.

This is Tange’s bright card using a butterfly punch with some bling for its body.  I spy another Top Note!

Tange's Orange butterfly

Next up are the challenge napkin projects, starting with this mermaid Holly made.  She used dew drops for bubbles and added some tiny shells.  The mermaid’s tail looks like it might have aquarium gravel in it.

Jeannie showed her inspiration for her Easter card in purples and greens.   Lovely latticey look.

This is my box made with five layers of cut out poinsettias.  I stiffened each layer with lots of Tacky glue that took forever, but eventually dried shiny clear and hard.

Challenge Kathy

Ursula made this hand mirror, using her rose napkin for the back of the mirror.

Linda made this wedding dress with her lacy white napkins.  Linda won our third prize for this gown.

Lona used a wedding napkin for this shiny silver card which took second place.

Eleanor did the project this month using mini CD cases.  Here are two of her samples or two finished pieces.  They were colored with colored pencils.

Wow there are some amazing cards here this month for sure. I love what you did with the Christmas napkins. I love that you matched the cardstock to the jellybellies too. How creative of you, my friend. I especially like Jeannie's lattice card. Wonderful work gals!

Fabulous job to all the girls. How 'matchy' of you, Kathy, to co-ordinate the jellies with the rest of the card.
