Martha Stewart Valentine Punches








Well, Martha has done it again. The Martha Stewart brand of punches has come out with some adorable paper punches for Valentines. Of course I had to pick up a few with a gift card I had from Michael's. I got two border punches and a scalloped heart punch. I will say this batch doesn't seem to have the same quality as the past. I had to play with each one (using tin foil to sharpen, wax paper and a little banging) to get it to work. The scalloped heart still sticks to the inside of the punch and I have to fish it out with a scissor. That said, here is a quick card I put together for the Created by Hand Challenge Love. The stamps are Rubber Cottage and Studio G. The tag is Clearly Vintage stamps. Click over to my other blog Clearly Vintage to see more.
