I have the instructions for the beautiful flower card that Jane Gill made for our demonstration night, that you all loved. And just by the side of the flower is one of Jane’s own designs of rubber stamps, it is the bubble butterfly done with shrink plastic.
For the flower on Jane’s card she used three Woodware scallop circle punches, the purple, pink and blue. Here is how Jane made it….
Punch two of each (you will have six circles), edge with contrasting ink pad on both sides. Cut each circle into eighths. Hold point side up in closed tweezers and wrap widest part around tweezers using finger and thumb to curl paper. Do one piece clockwise and the next anti clockwise, repeat on all pieces and keep in size piles!
Punch six daisies (green punch) and stick shapes from each pile around daisy petals. You will now have six shapes with eight petals on each. Place one inside the other beginning with the largest. Finish the middle with three punched shapes from the Woodware swirl using brown or green paper/card. Give each of these shapes severe cup character and stick one inside each other.
If you need any of the punches etc for this project please visit our website www.craftrange.com or give us a call on 01282 833091, if you are unable to find what you need. We have hundreds of items in store that are not on our website.

Here are a couple of sample cards that were made on the demo day Saturday just gone. We very often hold demonstrations at weekend to show different techniques. This demo proved to be very popular. The image was stamped with duo glue and gilding flakes were used to achieve the effect shown. Any rubber stamps work with this technique, but the penny black rubber stamps that were used gave a really nice elegant finished card.
We have a good range of the penny black stamps in stock and limited quantities of the various colors of gilding flakes and duo glue that were used. It did however prove to be so popular that I am sure we will be re-stocking on these items. Just give us a call if you require any information on the products used and we can put them aside for you or post through mail order. The red card that has been used as a border on one of the cards is new in stock but flying out. The depth of colour on this amazing card stock (12″x12″) has to be seen to be fully appreciated – it’s gorgeous.
