May Creative Images Meeting

A lot of us were out of town this week for various reasons, some for fun, some for sadness.  Our hearts go out to Linda on the loss of her mother.  Of the eight of us there last night, nine exchange cards were turned in.  Connie brought in Holly’s card.  Connie really wanted that little mermaid and was lucky enough to draw Holly’s name in the exchange.  Without more ado, here’s our “Life’s a Beach” exchange cards.  As always, click on the picture for details.

This first card is Jeannie’s purple vintage beach scene.  Jeannie said purple is her favorite color, this week.


Connie did this collage of beach motifs with some popped up shell embellishments.


Ella “strutted her stuff” with this popped up layered die cut seahorse.


Holly was off playing in Orlando this week, but had Connie bring in her exchange card with this fussy cut, popped up dreamy mermaid.


Therese made this card with the popped up frame around her colored flip flops.  Love the seashell border punch!


This is my palmy brayered silhouette sunset.  Russel didn’t like the brads!  Too bad!


Lona made this torn and layered beach scene.  Love the little seabirds she cut out free hand and the puffy cotton ball cloud.


Rosie made this scallopy, glittery seahorse.  You can’t really tell, but there is frosty glitter all over it.


Tange made this crabby sandcastle using the Perfect Pearl  technique Lona taught us last month.


Tange did the project this month on how to use a brayer.  We did a nice background with versamark resist that we can use to make a card.  Lots of different brayers and colors made for lots of different results.  Very pretty, too.  Thanks, Tange!  I’m going to try to bring a finished card to show and tell next month.

For show and tell, Jeannie brought in a little blue wedding card she made using a “cherish” popped up embellishment. 

Jeannie's show and tell

That’s it for now. Comments always welcome.
