A few cards using the Martha Stewart branch punch...

The Martha Stewart branch punch is probably one of the most versatile punches I have ever owned. I purchased mine last year from Wal Mart for about $9.00. I have also heard of Michael's and some lss carrying the punch if you are looking for one.




The reindeers:
On this card I used the branch punch as antlers for my reindeer, and used the SU! large oval for their heads. The paper is SU! and Imginisce's Snowy Jo paper.


The snowy pine:
For this card I used the branch punch as branches...lol! :) The trunk of the tree was hand cut by me from Close to cocoa SU! card stock, crumpled up for texture and ink with close to cocoa for depth. The snow on the tree is liquid applique sprinkled with SU! dazzling diamonds right before heating with the embossing gun.



Joy ornament:
Again I used the branch punch for a branch :) This time I hung a glittery ornament from the branch. For the ornament I used the SU! 1 3/8" circle punch and glitter paper from Target. Then tied gold string for the bow and string.

The Snowflake:
This time I spaced the branch punch out a little bit in a circle shape...creating this snowflake. To cover up the spacing in the middle I used the Martha Stewart 1" scallop circle punch and some stamps from Art Warehouse that I bought at Hobby Lobby. On the corners I used the SU! ticket corner punch and added a little bling. The base of the card was embossed using my swiss dots cuttlebug folder, and then inked with SU! white ink pad.

Feel free to copy any of the ideas posted here. If you are going to post your creations online...please be sure to give appropriate credit. Thank you.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
