Cool tool! Jun 22, 2010
By Elaine Priday
I love this stamp and punch set. Instead of stamping many different butterflies, I used black ink and just stamped one. Then I scanned it into my computer. I put it in a card making program (Print Shop) using a full page. I copied the image and pasted it along the left edge of the paper, making sure they were all in line. Then I grouped the whole line into one image, copied that, reversed it, and put it on the right side of the page. After printing a test sheet to make sure they line up on the front and back of the page, I can then change the color of the butterfly to anything I want -- say dark blue -- and print it on light blue paper. I then turn the paper over and print on the back side. There! I have a line of butterflies that I can punch out, with color on both sides of the wings! Fold the wings at the body and you have a very nice butterfly. Change the color to purple, print on pink paper, front and back, and you have more butterflies to punch out. Change the color again, more butterflies! I'm having a ball with this!

Really nice punch/stamper Nov 22, 2011
These are my absolute fav kind of hand paper punches (MS brand). With weak wrists and hands, I can squeeze gently and get crispy punched items to pop right out. Yay! The stamps are an added plus as you can customize your punches, or just use an acrylic block and make unique wreaths etc with the stamps :D

Flower punch Jun 24, 2012
By Laurie B. Kirby
This is an unusual punch. It is actually a punch and a stamp. You can punch flowers and paste on cards or you can stamp them onto paper with different colored stamps. Nice construction.

Pretty Design, But Something Went Wrong... Dec 04, 2011
I have been eyeing this punch for forever! I love the design and it's elegance, mixed with the ability to stamp it and make it different colors.
However, when I started using the punch, my love for the product failed. No matter what kind of paper I use, the snowflake comes out weak and brittle- if it comes out at all! 9 times out of 10 the little 3-pronged edge on the snowflake breaks off in the punch, and 8 times out of ten, the edges break off before they ever get glued to the paper! Let alone stamping! I'm very frustrated that the arms were made too thin to support themselves. I just can't believe that no one tested this before putting it on the market. Such a disappointment!

Need to be strong! Jan 29, 2012
By Joan Bonnell
This punch won't go through cardstock and you have to push down hard. Wish I could have tried it first. I've read that some of the Martha Stewart punches have this problem. Still, if you're just punching a pile of them to decorate, they are cute.
