I found myself wandering down the new aisle of Martha stuff at Michaels tonight. I went for a stroll down it a few days ago and came out with only a package of tags. But tonight I went in and had a 5 minute time limit (set by my dh who was waiting in the car) - I don't know if it was the time limit or what, but I ended up with a bunch of new stuff!! I picked up the Cosmo punch that I used on these flowers - love flower punches!! Plus I bought a glue pen... which is a handy, dandy little item, and the gorgeous, sparkly glitter - in gold of course!
When I got home I had to quick put a card together with my new goodies. I punched the flowers out of the flyer they put in my bag in the Martha logo colors. I then stamped the swirl from MFTstamps.com on a Fabriano Mediovalis card and adhere the glittery punched flowers with dimensionals.
The butterfly was made with wire edged ribbon - 2 pieces each tied in a knot, then the ends trimmed. The 2 bows were then wired together with gold wire. I made the antenae with gold wire wrapped around a knitting needle to form a spring.
What do you think of the new Martha stuff? I have heard alot of complaints that it's overpriced... I wasn't crazy about it my first trip down the aisle, but it's kind growing on me. Let me know your thoughts......
