Um, Excuse Me, I Believe You Have My Stapler

***Before getting started I wanted to announce the winner of my Season's Givings Giveaway! The winner is... Sandi! Congratulations, Sandi! Please email me with your full name and mailing address so I can get your prize out to you!***

Hiya! I am playing along with another fun challenge over on the My Favorite Things Card Challenges blog. This one is the color challenge.


These were the colors we had to work with. Fortunately, I recently got both the Tropical Teal and Persimmon ink, along with the tropical teal cardstock, so I knew I could work in a bit of limelight and lemon drop with what I had in my stash. I used the MFT Office Space stamp set (hence the blog post title...*wink* *wink*), with which I am, naturally, in love. I mean, FOR REALS! It has a Mac and a stapler in it! Why would anyone NOT want these stamps? LOVE!!!

Hold it Together


I used cardstock layers and strips to add a touch of color to the side of my design, while allowing the red...errrr... persimmon.... stapler to really stand out, framed by a pierced and embossed rectangle cut with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles (yup...you can use just the piercing portion and skip the actual cut... LOVE that feature!!!).

I was surprised at how much I liked this color combination. I wasn't sure if I could pull it off, but I love the finished look!

If, for some reason, you are unfamiliar with Office Space, get thee to Amazon, my friend! Seriously...it's like $5. And you will understand my life to the greatest extent possible. HA!

...if they take my...my stapler, then I... I'll...I'll have to...I'll set the building on fire.

Have a Happy.
