Default New use for MS corner punches

Hi everyone!
I was so excited to come across this cute technique that I just had to share.

Stamp Owl Studio shows how to use Martha Stewart corners punches to
create pretty medallions...I love it! (see June 4th post)

Another creative way to use our punches...Thank you Stamp Owl!

You're very welcome.
I went digging through my punch stash as soon as I saw her post. I think I need
to get the Optic Dot corner punch..it's one of my favorite medallions.
Happy crafting!

Default I tried.

Okay, so I tried this oh-so-cool technique. It defeated me. I musta tried 20 times (w/different punches), but, sadly, it's clearly operator-error; I couldn't get it to come out right, nor could I identify what I was doing wrong (but I was consistent).

So I tried a 2" square, and it came out fine. Obviously not identical to what she did, but if you didn't know any better, you wouldn't know any better, KWIM? I also tried a 1 1/2" square just doing opposite corners; again, not the same but still okay.

Has anyone else tried yet? How'd it work for you?

Again, Vina, TFS.

Hi!
I had success with the 1 1/2" squares. Using my tweezer thingy I lined up the square corners in the punch & it came out fine. The way I did it was to rotate to each corner side by side, I didn't do opposite corners.
Are you punching it from the underside like in her picture tutorial? I had to redo a few because I didn't line it up carefully before I punched (upside-down) & I overpunched into the design.
The corner punches I used with success were... Eyelet Lace, Loop, Modern Garden, Embroidered Floral & Bird & Branch.
I'll have to try the 2" square too. Thanks for sharing your discovery! It may look nice to layer different size medallions.
Good luck & try again..it should come out exactly like the samples in the tut.

Yep, that's what I did too. Thanks for the input.

Thanks Vina for including the link to my blog post on how to do the MS corner punches. Glad you are enjoying your corner punches hehe. Here is the direct link to save you scrolling down

http://stampowl.blogspot.com/2010/06...ng-martha.html

but I have now also included it in my tutorials page for easier access too.

I agree with what someone else said, if you have those reverse tweezers it does make it easier and some corner punches work better then others. I am sure if you check out the medallions in my book you will see some aren't perfect.

My first attempt wasn't all that fabulous either, so please don't give up .... don't rush it, line them up carefully and it should work.

Did y'all see this? It's a 3-part series on doing this and getting bigger and bigger; she's posting one video/day, started yesterday. I finally got it to work with the tweezers, but holding the paper seems so much easier. Anyway, check it out - Becca's work is beautiful!

The link is pretty big, if it doesn't work, just go to Becca's blog at Amazing Paper Grace.

Becca is Amazing!!
If anyone does not have Becca's site on their list of sites to visit "every day" they are missing some fabulous designs and ideas.
Her "Becca Bits" are tutorials and videos of amazing techniques.
And her altered items are fantastic. I think she could take a can of tomato soup and turn it into a gift that is fit to give the Queen of England.

She is unbelievable. Most designers create great cards some of the time. She designs great cards every time.
If I had 10% of her talent I would be overjoyed.

Your link worked perfectly! I am in awe of Becca's work..I wish I had her creative mind for a day! Her sample punch card is stunning!

Thanks so much for sharing Becca's link! I can't wait to try it!!
