Clean and Simple - Happy Wedding Day

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



Today is my sister's birthday, I don't think I will be able to call her from Spain, so Penblwydd Hapus Cariad (that's Welsh for Happy Birthday....) Have a great day Sis. Love you xx

I love the card. Very elegant. I have these punches and love them and you're right about the magnets lol. I think your butterfly card idea is great!!

Very pretty card - Also, the Stamp Anywhere stamps are pretty cool, when I showed my love, he rolled his eyes and asked, "won't your Cricut do that?" Point taken.

Happy birthday to your Sis!

Blessings, Donna

Happy Birthday to your sis! I've always been curious about the Welsh language... all those b's, and d's and y's... so how would you pronounce that phrase? Or can you even tell me by phonically spelling it? I guess I should just go to the library and find a welsh dictionary. Lovely card Envys. TFS

I haven't tried these punches yet, but have seen them and think they are the coolest idea.
I think your idea for the layout sounds great. I might just lift that idea from you, although I might stamp those butterflies. I hope you'll post the layout when you get it done.
Love the card, very clean and simple and beautiful.
