May Creative Images Meeting

We had a great turnout last night with 15 ladies bringing in their exchange cards, theme “Stamper’s Choice,” and 7 bringing in 10 ATC’s.  I’ve never gotten excited about ATC’s, but I just might have to rethink that position.  We got some great ones last night.  Eleanor did the projects, two of them, and we had a great time.  Thanks to Rosie for helping me keep track of all the cards and ATC’s.  As I inserted these pics, some of them are side by side, some not, and I appear to have no control.  I’ve always wanted to do them side by side, so go figure.

First, Therese’s blue happy birthday card with a vellum layer and Connie’s Celebrate card with a gathered tissue “ribbon.”

The pink fussy cut and layered card is Dani’s, with a bit of lace thrown in, too, around the window and the black and white and red spotlight card is Ella’s.

Back to one card.  Sheesh!  This is Herman’s plaid thank you card.  Eyelets, tearing, tag and brads, very masculine.

Choice Herman's

Here’s Holly’s card, with embossed poppies, and Patty’s  guest Janet’s bright flower card.

Janice said she went the easy route with this layered stickered daisy card.  She stuck some gold trim on there, too.  I love this kind of card!  Back to one at a time.

Choice Janice's

This is a very un-Jeannie-like card.  No embossing!  One tiny purple button.  Still a very pretty card.

Choice Jeannie's

Here’s my rose red card using SU’s new triple doily punch.  I only used two of the layers.

Choice Kathy's

Lona stamped on clear plastic, fussy cut and then colored the flower and butterfly with Twinkling H2O’s or something like that.  Very pretty effect.

Choice Lona's

This is Pam’s fussy cut and colored bonnet.  Lots of little details.

Choice Pam's

Patty used lovely pink satin ribbon on this card with the gorgeous rose.  Maybe she’ll teach us all how to make these some day.

Choice Patty's

Back to side by side.  I’m going nuts!  Here’s Rosie’s dragon fly card using one of my favorite sets, Upsy Daisy, and here is a Jeannie-like purple card with gold embossing, but it is Tange’s!  I like how she colored the base from light lavender to dark purple.

Choice Rosie's Choice Tange's

Surprise, surprise!  The ATC’s came out side by side, just the way I wanted them.  Here’s Therese’s Zentangle and Connie’s little lamp.

Dani put her dog’s face on her ATC.  Is that a clown or an angel or a teddy bear, Dude?  Ella made this ship’s collage.

Holly made this ATC with a chipboard house that opens on a hinge to show the fairy inside.

Here’s Jeannie’s rabbit from Alice in Wonderland and Tange’s dress form with lots of bellies on it.

Eleanor did the projects this month.  On the left is Ella’s sample card.  On the right is mine. 

Ella's Project 1Kathy's project 

Inside the cards Ella sponged, the edges and stamped in the sentiment “Wishing you butterfly mornings and wild flower afternoons.”  She thought she did too much for us, so she designed this ATC, too.  I have to color mine before I finish it up to stick on a card.

That’s it for this month’s meeting.  Thanks for stopping by. Comments always welcome.
