Office Supplies

I have the great opportunity to host this weeks "Ways to use it" challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I am filling in for the FABULOUS Julia Stainton as she has a funeral of a family friend to attend. Hugs and Prayers to you today Julia....

I had thoughts of doing something fabric....but didn't want to scare too many away from the challenge so I went with something that we ALL have in our house.....Office Supplies!
Whether they are made for scrapbooking or the regular office supplies that you have kicking around in the house I would love to see how you incorporate those items into your card designs! You can join in the challenge HERE.

In my card I used a couple of fabulous new items from Tim Holtz. The mini paperclip and the tiny staples are from his line. I just love the small scale of these products making them perfect for cards. I also used the notebook punch to add a little more of a school look. This new ATC (All things considered) set is being released Tuesday (August 4th) at Cornish Heritage Farms.....Woohoo! I've had a lot of fun playing with it.

I colored the image with my copic markers, making the shadow resemble the color of the kraft card stock. I used E31, 35 to achieve this look. For her clothing I grabbed my new pale colors and faded away to whites. If you click on the photo you can see a close up version.

Here are all my card details:
School Primer (ATC) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko),Aqua Adirondack (Ranger)
Kraft, Simply Smooth White (Prism),Girl Friday (Cosmo Cricket)
Notebook, Circle Punch (EK Success), Copic Markers, Mini paperclip, staples (Tim Holtz), Felt Flower (Making Memories), Pinking Sheers, Sewing

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
