Pam’s New Catty Workshop

Pam hosted a workshop for stuff from the new catty yesterday, but due to various family emergencies, etc., only 4 ladies could attend, including Pam.  Turned out well, anyway, and everyone liked what I demonstrated and our two make and takes.   Click on any pic to enlarge it for details.

I’ve shown this pic before, but I just love it, so will share it again.  I did all the prep work of punching, sponging, and curling the magnolia petals and demonstrated how to put the magnolia together.  Therese won the rose box in my door prize drawing.  I gave Pam the magnolia I started.

Magnolia & Rose boxes

When Pam and I went to Mt. Dora last week (see the Sandhill Cranes below), I had to take a pic of this gorgeous umbrella that was in a shop window. Butterfly umbrella

Using the brolly for inspiration, I made this sample card using the butterfly punch and Butterfly Prints stamp set.

Butterfly Prints 1

With that same butterfly punch, I made these pansy petals . . .


. . . from which I made this pansy card!  Might demo how to make these at Holly’s workshop next month.


Then we put together this easel card using the pineapple motif from Friends Never Fade with the newly returned Baja Breeze and Pacific Point cardstocks.  The learning curve for the Scalloped Trim border and corner punches was pretty steep, but everyone ended up with the perfect frames.

Friends Never Fade easel 2

Because the easel card was kind of intense, the second make and take was this super easy one-layer card using a mat punched with the Scalloped trim border punch and a sponge.  The flowers are from Elements of Style and sentiment from Sincere Salutations.  This one uses Melon Mambo, but Pam’s guests got to play with the new In Colors.

That’s it for now. Comments always welcome.

Thanks Kathy! I still can't believe how easy the one layer card is and looks so great!!

I hope to finish the magnolia this week and try my own.

The shading on the blue butterflies turned out just "go-jus". Have to try that too.
