Have you used these new punches by Martha Stewart? You can position them anywhere on a page, and punch away to your hearts content. I found it helpful to mark the back of your paper with pencil where you want to punch. Put this paper onto the bottom piece of the die, turning it upside down to make sure your pencil line shows, then simply place the top of the die on top, and be prepared to jump out of your skin the first time, it is held in place by four very strong magnets, (the gold spots in each corner of the base) that snap together with quite astonishing strength.
I have an idea for a scrapbook page using this punch, I thought I would punch a sort of curve of butterflies going from the bottom left, up to the top right, then I am going to put different coloured cardstock behind each one, and stitch trails along the paper - I thought it would make a really bright and breezy summer layout, probably of Kiki. What do you think?
This card really is clean and simple, but I like the finished effect. I used the punch anywhere on the page Martha Stewart heart punch that QVC sent me to review - the order line is 0800 50 40 30
I simply punched the heart, and found some gorgeous acetate which has a criss cross of gold on it, which I put at the back of the heart. I used a pre-shaped card and white pearly card candi from Craftwork Cards, and heat embossed the sentiment (an old one by Hero Arts) in gold
