It was so hard for me to choose my "Favorite Thing" because I have SO MANY, and they change all the time. Currently, my two absolute favorite things are my Pink By Design Stamps and my Martha Stewart punches. Sarah over at Pink By Design makes the most wonderful stamp sets. They are of amazing quality and are so versatile. Although I adore my Cricut I'm also a punch junkie and I'm OBSESSED with Marthas punches and craft products. Her new Valentines Day punches are GORGEOUS, so for this hop I decided to make a card using a few of her new punches.
Recollections Craft Cardstock
Pink patterned paper from Michaels
DCWV Midnight Spell Stack (glitter paper)
Martha Stewart Cherish Hearts Border Punch
Martha Stewart Flourish Heart Punch
Pink By Design "Scriped Year" Stamp Set
To create this card I used two of Martha's new Valentines Day punches: the Cherished Hearts border punch and the Flourish Heart punch. I think the Flourish Heart is my absolute FAVORITE punch right now, so I wanted the card to feature the gorgeous punched image.
I actually punched out two hearts, one in craft cardstock and one from the pink glitter paper, and layered them slightly off-center from each other.
The sentiment is from one of my absolute favorite Pink By Design Stamp sets, Scripted Year. Scripted Year can truly be used all year round and the font is just gorgeous.
Are you ready for some blog candy? I figured a Martha punch would be a fitting giveaway today, since they are some of my favorite things :)
Even though the holidays are over, I know a lot of us are still scrapping Christmas, and this Punch and Stamp Set by Martha Stewart will look great on a layout, or for next years Christmas cards! The punch comes with three different clear stamps to make three different gift boxes, and they store neatly inside. So adorable!
