Pam’s Workshop

Pam hosted a workshop for me on November 13 and we made a lovely watercolor card and played with tag stamps and punches.  For the latter, I took as many punches as I could carry that work with the stamp sets that use the punches.  Before that, we watercolored with reinkers on this card for a make and take.

I made two little gift bags as hostess gift/drawing prizes and let Pam pick which one she wanted as a hostess.  She picked this one I made with one of the mini lunch sacks and a piece of Deck the Halls DSP.  I used some Bravo Burgundy grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.

The scrap on the gift sack was what I had left after making this cute little bag.  Theresa won this in the drawing.

Deck the Hallls sweet window bag 

I got the idea to make this from Dawn Griffin’s October 29 post for a cute and simple box video: http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/

I wanted a sweet treat cup on it, so I punched out the hole and stuck in the cup, after which I filled the bag with Kisses.  The hole punch also took a chunk out of the bottom flap, but I just used that piece under the others and you can’t even tell. 

My first try at the box ruined a piece of the Deck the Halls DSP, but I managed to save one corner of it, which I fussy cut out and made into this card. I used the Tags Till Christmas stamp set and the Decorative Label punch to finish it off, along with Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke cardstocks.

That’s it for now.  I’ll be posting pics from my stamp club as soon as I get a chance.

Thanks for stopping by. Comments always welcome!
