Punch art class

I have been going to stamp classes offered by my local SU demonstrator, just to get out of the house and be social with other adults.  This month was a punch art class and these are the cards we made. 
First up is a super cute frog made of circles, ovals and flower punches.  We inked all the parts before assembling and the sentiment was embossed with Whisper White craft and white powder.  The flower is inked in Wisteria Wonder and we used our fingernails to flick up the petals a bit for dimension. 
Second, we made a lion birthday card.  The mane is made from a flower punch and the face is all circles and the heart is from SU's owl punch.  The feet are the same punch as the mane, but cutting two pieces off.  I think he needs a tail sticking up in the background.  The banner is using the SU pennant punch.  How about those googlie eyes?  The sentiment is in Pumpkin Pie.
Next, is the flower get well card.  Can you believe all the flowers are made from the owl wings of the SU owl punch?  Just punch three of them and stack them.  The vine is hand-cut and the pink is the new SU Strawberry Slush. 
Last, but not least is the purse card.  It's the curvy label punch, oval punches, and circle punch.  How cute is that?  The flowers are from a retired punch that has three identical flowers across it (I got mine from a kit in a tin).  Did you see the ribbon? 
I know the ideas were found on Splitcoast's gallery but don't know who to credit for each card.  I am sure you can find them and the directions with a little browsing.  Thanks for looking!  April
