Creative Images June Meeting

Our meeting on June 10 was well attended and we had a good exchange theme, Circus/Carnival/Fair.  We also did a swap of six thinking of you cards.  Five ladies participated in the swap, so we each got one of ours back.  Yay!  I might have messed up on identifying the swaps since the ones I have pictures of are not the same as the ones I got (one of which was not signed).  If I did not name them right, let me know and I’ll fix it.  Click on any pic to see details and back to return.

These first three look like three versions of the same stamp, maybe.  The first one maybe not, the next two for sure.

First is Cheryl B’s ticket to happiness.

Next is Ella’s Admit one.  She carried out the theme inside and on the envelope!


Therese’s “not my circus, not my monkeys,” is something I can definitely hear her saying.


Here’s my hot air balloon.  Learned how to do the reflection in a Paper Pumpkin video. I used that washi tape inside and on the envelope, too.


Here’s Cheryl M’s lion at the circus card.

Pam went nuts with punches on her clown card.  Cute!


Pat J did his happy clown card with lots of fussy cutting, but what’s up with the clown with his head in his lap?!  I think Pat said she did the balloons with sponge daubers.

Jeannie forgot the theme, but this is a nice “ship” card from her stash.


Our swap netted us some nice thinking of you cards.  First, here’s Cheryl B’s sunny card, I think.

Here’s Cheryl M’s card made with one of my favorite 3-step stamping sets from long ago. I think I need to dig it out and play with it.

Here’s mine using DSP and a matching embossing folder, sanded to show the white core.


Here’s Pam’s looking very soft with pastels and tiny pearls. 


Here’s Pat J’s using DSP.  All of hers were different.  The one I got has a buckle on it, but uses same colors and DSP.

Cheryl B did our project, a waterfall card.  Here are two of her samples. The one on the left is not quite finished so she could show us how it goes together. I finished mine and it looks a lot like the masculine sample, but it has a ribbon on the bottom for the pull.  I like the feminine one, too, and that’s what I put together for Helen to finish.

Last, just because I can, here are some thank you cards I made for Pat J to pick one as my thank you for her online order.  She chose the one with rainbow “THANKS.”

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