Happy (almost) Valentine's Day! We have a great Martha Stewart Crafts giveaway with a few valentine punches, glitter, and stickers. I also wanted to share some punched-heart crafts created by one of our super-talented freelance crafters, Emily Eibel. I especially love how she used the hearts to create other shapes—great ideas for using heart punches for non-valentines-y ideas all year. (By the way, you should check out her artwork here...and blog here!! I'm particularly inspired by her stitched illustrations.)
A few words from Emily:
"The heart punches are super-versatile. The 'fallout' hearts work great as embellishments and can also be used to build other more complex embellishments, such as flowers, leaves, clovers, butterflies, and moths. The negative space of the Heart Punch All Over The Page makes for great mini photo frames, an allover lace pattern, or even photo corners."
Now, the giveaway: One lucky winner will win a set of Martha Stewart Crafts tools, including the Heart Lock and Key limited edition punch, the ruffled-heart Punch All Over The Page limited edition punch, a 3-pack of festive fine glitter and glittered alphabet stickers. For a chance to win, leave a comment and tell us the best valentine you've ever received, along with a valid e-mail address. All comments must be received by 6 P.M. on February 9, 2011. We'll choose one commenter at random to win this prize.
(See official rules here. Please be aware, comments may take time to show up on our site.)
