Have done it again, one of these days will get used to how to post these things, I wanted this under my card but trust me to get it wrong again. These are the 2 new border punches I got of Martha's and I love them, they cut so clean and leave a nice straight edge on your card when you have cut them out. They cut fine on thinnish card or thick paper but I found if your paper is thin they get stuck when trying to move them along so be careful. I fist tried them on some thin pearlised paper and made an awful mess. These below where cut out of glitter card and the one on the card is cut out of one of those long border strips you can buy, think they are Docrafts, you know the ones I mean they are 12" long in different designs, think they are for scrap booking really. Anyhow have rambled enough, just thought I would let you see
Don't you just love this image, a dear friend of mine bought me the stamp as they call her Caitlynn. My youngest Granddaughter is called Kaitlynn and she has a cheeky face too, mind she is a baby no longer. The stamp is a Sugar Nellie stamp. What do you think of the border Folks, I am like a kid in a candy store as have just got these new Martha Stewart punches. I could not resist, they are fabulous


  1. O that is so cute ! Luv the borders too , I will have to ck out Martha Stewart section at our store....

  2. That's a great stamp, Dot and the borders look good. Long post for you, lol!

  3. Very cute stamp and those punches are great too.

  4. Love the card Dot and the borders are really effective. I see that Cath is being cheeky, again, lol, x

  5. Are those punches the QVC ones? I'm overcome with jealousy! I wanted the lot, but unfortunately had to buy other art supplies (boring paper & book board for a class next week) plus printing ink - so that was it for money for the week. So boring!

    I can't believe the price of ink cartridges just now... Espon ink in Asda was £9.95, Ryman was £11.95 and in WH SMith it was... wait for it... £17.99! All for the same single ink cartridge. I got mine off Amazon!

    Love the card, by the way.

  6. Lovely image Dot, and that punch is gorgeous - can see why you are in the candy store with the MS punches.
