Good Tuesday morning. I enjoyed the layout I used on my post yesterday and since it is fast and easy and a great after work kind of card I repeated it again for today. I changed up the color combination and kind of flowers and foliage and it takes on a totally different look.
I know I have told you this several times now but I love the sweet look of rolled roses, My Favorite Things Rolled Rose and Mini Rolled Rose are my favorites all of all that I have.
I think they are especially pretty paired with the Leafy Flourish and a few pieces of punched fern. I really like the extra texture and dimension the broader fern brings to my floral sprays.
One problem I have had with the push top punches like the fern punch is that I don’t have much strength in my hands and have avoided them in the past. I have also had trouble with the Martha Stewart lever punches as well when creating multiple pieces. I recently purchased the Punch Bunch Magnum Power Aid and it is such a wonderful tool.
I can now comfortably punch multiple pieces of foliage, etc. without overworking my hands. The aid is made to use with the push top punches but I used it yesterday to push down the lever on my MS Branch punch. I wanted to share my experience about this new tool (new to me) with you in case there are those of you who share my issue with hand weakness.
Thanks for looking in today.

Love, love, love the color combination, design, and layout. Very stunning and gorgeous!!!!! Punch Bunch Magnum Power Aid – this tool is unknown to me. Interested in it and will try and get more info on it. Thank you for sharing your creativity and inspiration. Our lives can be so busy and at times overwhelming I’m so glad we can be an encouragement and a blessing to others sharing beautiful paper crafting. Thank you 🙂 Lola
Loving your oh so pretty rosey cards! Super colours and you always manage to add such wonderful texture. Hugs, Lesley
What a stunning, calming, peaceful card. You really are gifted Kittie. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your precious gift with us. I need to gaze at your card some more, WOW.
This is gorgeous Kittie, love the design paper too.
What a great tool, thanks for sharing this info with us.
Gorgeous card and cool tool!!!!
Good Morning Kittie,
This is gorgeous. Thanks for introducing the new tool. I use a spandex on my hand for support and to keep my fingers from turning numb. This looks like a very good idea. Will consider it. ……have a good day, hugs and smiles.
Thanks Kittie, for letting us know about this tool. It is just what I need as I have arthritis in my hands and they don’t have much strength. I don’t have much trouble with the small MS lever punches but can’t hardly do the large ones.
I don’t think that I have ever seen a card of your that I didn’t LOVE, and this one is no different. I love your work. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.
Beautiful, I love the use of the designer paper, it is hard for me not to use it!
Thank you so much for posting the punch magnum power aid! I have given up using all of my punches like this. have even given most of them away. but kept a few of my faves, to have someone else punch for me!
I will be shopping for one of these little treasures.
