It's time again for another challenge here at Ladybug Crafts Ink...they seem to be coming around awful quick lately lol. Before I explain what our lovely Sally has in mind I'd like to thank all our entrants for Laurie's 'I Need A P' challenge...you were all fantastic and I'm sure glad I didn't have to choose the winner! Make sure you check the Challenge Blog to see if you were the Challenge Winner, The Winner using an LCI image or a worthy Top 3!
Sally's challenge is to include office stationery in your card or project. That could be staples, paperclips, bulldog clips, lined paper, elastic bands etc...you get the idea. If you can find it in an office then it will fit the challenge though desks, chairs and water coolers might prove challenging lololololol.
It was hubby's birthday yesterday and he likes plain cards (like his dinners...a typical Irishman, meat, potatoes and two veg!). Not too much pattern on the paper or too many embellishments so he got what he likes though I think it's a bit stark lol. I'll let you be the judges....
I used the fabulicious digi Magnum & Lily's Cupcake Surprise only to be told that I'd already made hubby a card using it hmph! I colored the image with my Copics and added Glamour dust to the party hats and candle flames and Glossy Accents to Magnum's nose and the cupcake icing. I cut some flags using Die-namics Mix & Match Banner dies
When I was searching for stationery embellishments I came across a box at the back of a cupboard I hadn't opened for years. Inside was exactly what I needed...my EK Success stapler and staples! Does anyone out there have one of these? It looks like a normal stapler but the staples are about 5mm deep and come in different colors and have different sentiments/images on them. They are pretty funky and fun to use
I used a mini bulldog clip from Stampin' Up!
I'm not very good at sentiments and usually just write something boring and basic but I made up a little poem this time...I'm thinking I might offer my services to Hallmark rofl!
Here's one of the staples...pretty cute huh
