Creative Crew 2023 - June

It's posting day for the Creative Crew. What exactly is the Creative Crew? We are a group of 7 card-making friends from various US locations who have a fun monthly creative adventure with a secretive twist. 

One of the group's members hosts each month. As host, she chooses a theme and puts together theme appropriate kits, which she mails to the other members, keeping one for herself, too. The group members all receive the same kit, but there is to be no conversation about the kit or the cards we're making. Then, on the 15th of the month, we all reveal our cards.

It's always fun to see how each person uses the kit.  

This month it was Barb's turn to host. She chose the theme...


This is what was in Barb's kit:

Image/Sentiment: Pinkfresh Studio Bouquet of Flowers (I colored with Copic markers)

Papers: SU Peaceful Poppies Collection

Ribbons: SU Mossy Meadow, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, and White

Embellishments: from her stash - Pinkfresh, Taylored Expressions and others


Here's my card:

I used embellishments from Barb's kit on some of the elements of the bouquet. There were pink hearts in Barb's kit, but they were a brighter pink than I wanted for my card, so I used a Copic marker to color some of the white hearts. Not perfect, but it worked.

Be sure to check out all of the Creative Crew cards:




Jeanette - that's me

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only things I used other than what was in Barb's kit was SU Lemon Lime Twist CS for the card base, Recollections White CS for the inside, and two die sets - Honey Bee Sweet Stacks Rectangles and Paper Roses Stitched Circles

WOWZA--this is a beautiful card. I really, really like the layout and how you used the patterned paper! The image is colored perfectly and then fussy cut too! Genius in how you used the additional hearts! You sure have made a pretty card with the kit I sent!
