Playing with Martha Stewart Punches!!

I know lots of you saw the recent Martha Stewart TSV on QVC - How fab was it!!
It was brilliant being in studio that day and seeing all the lovely samples up close - also getting to have a play with the punches was a real treat!!

Anyway, a real perk of the job is sometimes you get crafting goodies given to you to play with and guess what I got.......................... Yep, Martha Stewart Punches!!!

I have finally had a chance to play with one of them today and created these:

What do you think?? I just used a Prima Flower and Craftwork Cards Sentiment to finish it off!
Also, a little strip of double sided tape covered in micro beads on one of the cards!
Really don't think it needs much more as really wanted to show the punched detail off to its fullest!
I am going to try the Punch Around The Page next - will post when done!!!

Also, Blog Candy is proving very popular - thankyou all so much for your lovely comments!

WOW these cards are stunning. I got the flower ones and am itching to play but have been having a huge tidy up of the craft room so will do it once that is finished. Love Hazelxo

These are fab Amy! I got the flower ones and still have not had time to 'play' yet .. can't wait! I just love the fact that you don't need to add much else to a card so that you get the full effect from the punches. Love Joyce x

I love MS punches and can boast a few hanging in my craft room. I spied one at Dawn's when I came to Suze's workshop, but when the class was over and I went to buy it, it had gone. I was so disappointed. I love the stip of beads it's lovely as are the colours. x
