Pink Cat Studio Card Class!!


I am very excited to announce that I have been asked by Dawn, the lovely owner of the local scrapbooking store, The Cat's Kaboose, to teach a card class this month!!! I'm very excited about it and Dawn has been a real joy to work with! I love making new friends, don't you???

So I had to design five cards for the class using ONLY the products that Dawn carries in the store. Okay, let's just say that this was quite a challenge for me! I am so used to creating cards for classes using only Stampin' Up products that it took me a while to get going. I did come up with a total of seven before settling on these five!!

The cards are made using stamps from Pink Cat Studio......yaaaaay!! I love them and NO, they are not all cat stamps!! That's just the name of the company!! They have many different lovely designs and you can see some of them here on my blog. Check out their website too for ALL the beautiful stamps they carry and be sure to tell them that Kimmie sent ya!! They have a great rewards program too!! Melissa is a joy to work with and she ships out SUPAH fast!! Anyhoo, I will share all five cards with you today!!

Of course, one of the cards HAD to have a cat image, because the store is called The Cat's Kaboose!! So the first one uses a solid cat image stamped with black Stazon on white cardstock and the card base is black Bazill cardstock. I doodled around the frame of the cat and matted it on black and pink cardstock and pop dotted it on a piece of Scarlett's Letter Basic Grey paper. Then I took a scrolly type stamp from Autumn Leaves and stamped it in the corner with white craft ink along with the Cool Cat sentiment by Pink Cat. To finish it off I added three pink Prima flowers with black brads!!



For this one I used the Heart Topiary stamp to make this sweet card. I took the colours from the Tres Jolie double sided patterned paper that I used for the card base. It makes a really nice finish to the card to have the inside be the solid colour side of the patterned paper. I used markers to colour in the image and used my Karen Foster Snap Stamps to make the 'love' sentiment. I used the coloured side of the pp to mat the main image and sponge around the edges of it with a Grapefruit Dew Drop, added some Prima flowers and green brads and also this cool stretchy ribbon....and I have NO idea where Dawn got it, but I love it!!



I thought I would do a nice summer-themed card using this Bikini stamp that I think is too cute!! The card base is white cardstock and I used this double-sided patterned paper (forget who makes it) for all the patterned pieces. The main matting piece is the purple side of the pp that I ran through my Cuttlebug, which I will be bringing to the class for their use. I used the Blooms and Dots embossing folder and I love how the white core of the paper peeks through in some of the embossing. The main image is stamped with black Stazon and coloured with a red marker, then matted on two Square Scalloped punches which I put together to make a rectangle, and then I dotted it with my white gel pen. The flowered piece is the opposite side of the pp and I wrapped some yummy red polka dotted ribbon around it and tied my tag to it, which is stamped with my larger sized Karen Foster Snap Stamps to say 'Sunny Days'.



This card is the most elegant of the bunch, I think. I stamped the Paisley Butterfly and shaded it in using markers again, then punched it out with my Mega Circle Punch and doodled around the edge of the circle. Then using Tres Jolie patterned paper, I punched out a Giga Scalloped circle punch. The card base is Bazill cardstock and the darker green matting is the patterned paper's solid side and then the smaller matting is the patterned side. I just LOVE this paper! I used the ticket corner punch and silver brads in the corners, added some ivory organdy ribbon and pop dotted the main image!!



And this last one is probably my favourite!! I just LOVE these dogs!! I hope Melissa designs some more soon!! I can't resist cute doggie stamps!! Anyway, I totally took my inspiration from this dee-lish-us patterned paper by Three Bugs in a Rug!! It's so sharp and clean!! The card base is black and I used two sides of the patterned paper for the main matting. I punched out the stars from another coordinating piece of pp using a small circle punch and then punched larger circles out of some black sugar coated paper!! I LOVE this stuff! It's a thick cardstock in a 12x12 size and it has sparkly glitter ALL over it!! It also comes in cotton candy pink and sparkling white!! I added some black gingham and pop dotted the doggie image which I coloured in with matching markers, shaded around the white areas and doodled the frame!!

So those are my five creations and I will be teaching them at The Cat's Kaboose on Tuesday, June 19th at 7pm!! The cost is only $15 for all 5 cards!! You must call the store to pre-register for the class and the number is 519-637-6222!! There are a limited number of seats, so call today to avoid disappointment!! Don'tcha wanna take my class????? Heehee!

Woohoo! You class instructor superstar, you! All the cards are adorable, but being a cat lover, I have to say I'm partial to the cat card! I've been thinking about buying the hearts plate, and your topiary card might have just pushed me over the edge. Wish I lived near you so I could take your class! :)

I love all the cards! The dog is probably my favorite, too. My daughter's 3rd b'day party theme was "Pink Poodles" and I've been having a time finding a cute poodle stamp to make pink. I'll def. check out that website! Wish I could take the class!!!!!

Kim, I can't wait to make these cards... they are so cute. I can see I'd better bring my cheque book to the store as well; that sparkly paper and the Tre Jolie look great and very tempting... and you know how I can resist things! See you soon. God bless. Linda
