Punch Art?

So, what is punch art and what exactly is a punch art class?  I know, that’s what a lot of you have been asking yourself!  Well, let me tell you…  :0)

Punch art has been around for a long time but seems to have really taken off recently.  Basically, it’s the “art” of creating animals, people, flowers, etc. out of various punched out shapes.  Again, you’re asking yourself… “ok, and why would I want to do that?”  The answer? Because, it’s a great way to dress up a scrapbook page or make a really cute card.  Like this one!

Created by: Mandy Grant (Bonus card)

This cute little dog was created with only punches.  No special cutting skills needed.  Just some punching and a couple of snips with your scissors.

Now, you’re probably telling yourself… “Wow, what a cute idea!  I could never figure out how to do that!”.  That’s where a fun Punch Art Class comes in handy….

At each class you will make 4 punch art pages. Each page will have a finished example, PLUS it will show each of the pieces needed to create it.  See samples below.

Class Fee: Just the cost of ANY large punch (Stampin’ Up!)you would like to add to your punch collection. I’ll provide the paper, glue, ribbon, and other accessories, free of charge. It wouldn’t make sense for me to show you how to make them if you don’t have the tools to duplicate them!

Bonus:  With the purchase of a 2nd large punch you will receive 4 cards (one for each punch art) to make along with your punch art pages.  Samples below.

RSVP: By the day before. And I will reply with a list of punches we will be using at that class. Please, bring any LABELED punches that you have, from the list, to help the class move faster!!! If you don’t have any, that’s ok.…you will before long. :)

Here are a few samples from past punch art classes.  They have been such fun to make!

All of these images have been found online from various blogs and the Stampin’ Connect website.  Unfortunately, I’m not sure who came up with them originally.

Now that you know what punch art is all about, I bet you can’t wait to make some of these cuties yourself?

Well, you’re in luck! I hold a Punch Art Class the last Friday of every month.  So, sign up today for April’s class.

If you join my Kennesaw Stamper’s group, at www.meetup.com, you will receive reminders of this class and any others I have going on.

Thanks for looking!
