A Winning Combination

A winning combination - that is Jill and Jane. Jill of Cardinal Colours hosted a Floral Punch Craft Workshop run by Jane Gill on Saturday. We had a lovely day learning lots of the techniques needed for the art of flower punch craft.

Here are my efforts along with photos of Jane's cards so you can see how they can be used. All the punches and tools can be purchased from Cardinal Colours.

The rose I made using a heart punch.

And a beautiful card made by Jane with the same type of roses.

This is a cornflower and made with a sun ray punch, stamen punch chalks and copy paper.

Here is Jane's pretty card.

I loved making this card with 12 tiny hearts punched from paper.
These two cards Jane made using the same technique but they are punched from coloured vellum, giving them lovely deep colours.

This is a make believe fantasy flower using the Lilium Feathes punch, the stamen punch, a daisy punch and chalks.

Jane showed us this card using the same idea but more layers.

We also made daisies.
This Tiger Lily was made using the Liliun Feathers punch again.

This flower uses the Cherry Blossom and stamen punches.
... and various leaves.

At the end we made a Christmas tree, using the Lilium Feathers punch.

This is Jane's Christmas Card.

Here are some other cards made by Jane and hopefully I can attend a more advanced class and make some of these flowers another day.

This was made with a Bee punch!

This flower was made with a balloon punch!

A date for your diary - Jane will be teaching floral punchcraft at Cardinal Colours retreat in Eastbourne in September.  If you are interested you need to contact Jill through her website to read more and book a place. Places are going fast though! Hope to see you there.
