Default confession martha stewart border punches

I have to confess I bought a martha stewart border punch - I have a few cards on my blog or in my gallery that show it and now I am obsessed.
I want MORE MORE MORE. It just adds this really nice little detail to cards.

Show me your cards or projects with border punches (Martha's or others) -

Here is one of mine:

Pretty cards!! Don't the MS punch add such a pretty, finished look. I bought this same one 2 weeks ago and haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Thanks for sharing!
May God bless, Sandi

I can't wait to see what you do with it! Here is a beautiful card by cmustopa that uses a fiskars border punch!

I looked at these at Christmas and thought, oh yes... Thank heavens all my stores are 60 miles away so I cannot rush out for them. It may have to be an online order!

I have two eyelet/scalloped M's border punches and love the effect. I did this card last week but haven't uploaded it to the gallery yet.

OMG, ladies - these cards just make me drool with envy! Here I just got done saying in a poll that I had spent zero dollars so far this year (1-6-0, and now I'm going to have to go out and get that MS punch...sigh.

I don't have any of the ms border punches yet but I was wondering if they are better than the Fiskars border punches.

I haven't used the Fiskars, but I did read that they were rather difficult to punch (don't know if that is accurate). What I like about Martha's punches is that they are sharp and cut cleanly, at least the ones I have so far. My eyelet border punch is a little more difficult to punch than the scalloped/embossed one. It does great on SU's whisper white but struggles a little with Papertrey white cardstock which is quite a bit thicker. I think it's probably because it's cutting more edges and small holes.

So glad you posted this! I've been wondering how they would look because it's kinda hard to tell from the packaging. And some say punches and other embossers. The samples here are lovely. Bad enablers! But, I'm just too lazy to use the corner rounder to make those lovely scalloped edges so this may just do it!

Does anyone know of a scallped edge border punch. By anyone. I have seem some cards with the scalloped border and they are so perfect I have always thought they were not done with scallop scissors. Am I right.

I wasted a 50% off coupon on one of her border punches. It was supposed to be snowflakes but what it punched didn't look anything like the picture. I even had DH try it to make sure that I wasn't doing something wrong. It was just aweful so I returned it.
But looking at the beautifully fantastic cards you all have made I think I need to try a different one!

Terrific! I was already in a shopping mood (dropped into the TexasJodyLynn ribbon share....I mean, why not?) and then THIS post? Great! Soon I'll be the proud owner of some more of Martha's ribbon, fine glitter, and the scalloped/embossed border punch! WooHoo! (Please Mr. UPS guy, don't come when DH is awake!)

I bought the snowflake one AFTER Christmas for 50% off -- no coupon. Then, of course, I used a 50% off coupon on another one. So, I guess I got two for the price of one!

I love the MS punches I have which are one of the borders and the holly leaf.
It does a great job of punching through SU's CS, which is not always the case with some punches.
Here's my cards:
