Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch All Over the Page and YNS



Hi Crafters!

Here I am getting a start on Christmas projects!  One of my chosen themes to run with this year is the snowflake as I love them!  Pure and white, they add a touch of the true holiday spirit in my opinion. I am positively dripping in them around our home - crystal snowflakes are on the swags, on the tree, even my jewellery! 
So I started by buying Martha Stewarts Punch All Over The Page " Scallop Snowflake " and here is two of my projects using it!  Its my first 'all over the page' [is there a shorter name for this? lol!] ...and once you get the hang of it, it can go pretty fast.  But I won't even say what happened to me the first time using it - but it cracked everyone up who saw it!!!

My first card is also using some of my other more recent buys - YNS's  Tall Globe Stamp & Die Set and Ellie Loves to Skate Stamp.  On top is a border die from designer Donna Salazar for Spellbinders. It is called Creative Pages Two. The border die is interesting because it has holes to enable you to hang crystals, or charms - something I will like to try soon! 

But you can see the snowflake background works on its own in a very simple fashion!  I also plan to make a luminary with this punch, so come back to visit! 

Cheers!
