Punch me, Martha

LOL! I don't know why that title popped in my head but it did. I went a little punch crazy making these tags. Last week, my friend Dawne dropped off some coupons for Ben Franklin Crafts 40% off sale and I ended up buying some Martha punches.The big snowflake is a Marvy punch and the little one is a Martha. I glittered both of them and added blingy brads. See that star border, I don't know why I bought it but it turned out really cool. Overall, I got to use up a lot of scraps.Here's a Christmasy card that I made several weeks ago. I had stamped and colored that owl awhile ago but never used it. And I wanted to make something out of the new curvy rectangles from Spellbinders, so I ended up with this.
I saw this on Jen M's blog and wanted to make one using the Hero Arts holly flourish background stamp. If you look closely, I embossed the holly flourish with clear embossing powder. And of course, I had to use some Dandelion stamps to finsh it.
The tag is a Spellbinders shapeabilities tag which I got from the store. Well, I'll be back later with some other cards that I made. Thanks for stopping by!

Love those snowflake punches, too. Did you know MS has three different ones? I picked up them up from Wal-Mart and Ben Franklin.

Thank you! You're an inspiration.
