Martha Stewart Punch's

Hi everyone, well I have been playing with my new Martha Stewart punches today, using them to go around the circle. I cut them using my X-Cut circle shapes on scrap paper first just to see what size would work. Here is the cards I made.

I used Navy and Green card stock, Card Candi, Navy and Green Ribbon, and a Lili of the Valley Stamped image. I cut a large circle in the navy and a smaller one in the green. Used my Martha Stewart conner punch making sure the top of the pattern on the punch is at the top edge of the paper. I then cut each of them in half-used one of my border punches in green and navy card for the middle.

Thanks for popping by

March Sketch Challenge

Well hello everyone it 1st March 2012 and it is time for this month’s challenge over at The Craft Cupboard on Facebook. After last month I have made a few changes to it, I am now saying any 3 flower or butterfly embellishments and if you are making a male card, you can add 3 male embellishments. the winner of this month will become the guest designer for next month. The closing date is 8pm on the 26th March. Good luck to everyone.

Ok here is the layout

Here is my card

I used yellows and orange I heat embossed the white background with flowers and then went over it with a yellow ink pad. Once the card was finished I got gold glitter and put it into the middle of each of the flowers on the background and the images are from Debs cd over at

When picking your colour scheme look at your images (if they are on the computer) and then see if you have a backing paper to go with it......or look at your backing papers first if you are using a Digi image.
Ok here is the guest designer Jane Bryan cards

So well done
