Creative Images March Meeting

We had our short business meeting and exchanged the four cards submitted for this month’s theme, Joy Ride.  Then we made a gorgeous card for Pam’s project.  Pam found the project in Splitcoaststampers resource section here.  At the end of the tutorial is a video which really explains the technique.  Well worth watching before trying to do this. 

When processing the pics off my camera, I found some from Janice’s workshop for Therese last month.  Here’s pictures of the two cards Therese had for make and takes and Helen and Linda.

Here’s Ella’s bicycle built for two joy ride card.  Her background paper is bicycles, too!

Here’s my card with Chopper and friends sledding.  He was fussy cut and popped up on a scene with liquid appliqué for the snow.


Therese took hot air balloons for her joy ride card.  Brightly colored and fussy cut!

Because the theme is only a guide, Jeannie  submitted an Irish Prayer card.  I’m going to do up the prayer to print up and put inside my St. Paddy’s card below.

Pam and I did up several samples for her project.  This first one is an example of what not to do, i.e., don’t run the grey marker down the ditch between each square.  The printed tutorial was very unclear about this step.  The video tutorial was crystal clear.

Bad example

Here’s another sample, before we put the greeting on.

Here’s my finished project.  The Serenity toile du jouy stamp is retired.

Kathy's project

Here’s two more tiles done up, side by side, to show how another background stamp looks.  On the left is one made with glossy CS, on the right regular CS.  Both using the same ink pad.  Go figure.

On my way home, I had to take this picture of the neat cloud patterns for a storm that didn’t make it quite to Ocala after hammering Gainesville.

Neat sunset

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