I made a ton of cards last weekend for World Cardmaking Day, but I haven't been very good about getting them posted on my blog! I'll try to rectify that over the next few days! This is my card for Denise's challenge on the Res-Q challenge blog; she asked us to use something on our card that makes our blood pressure go up! For me, that is definitely staples - especially staples that SHOW! But I persevered, and used staples to attach my ribbons on this little mermaid card. The image is from Pink Cat Studios and was a RAK from my friend Jacqueline. Isn't she cute? I covered her scales with Stickles for lots of sparkle.
Stamps: Lily, Pink Cat Studios; sentiment, Stampendous
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copic markers
Paper: tempting turquoise, lavender lace, ballet blue, whisper white
Accessories: staples, ribbon, Cuttlebug, Stickles, ticket punch, dew drop

Ca-YUTE!! Love that sweet little mermaid image. I'm with ya on the staples thing. What REALLY gets my blood boiling though is ink distressing and crooked lines - paper tearing, tilted images, and lack of symmetry. Makes me want to poke my eyes out! LOL You did a fabulous job - REALLY love the ribbon treatment, even if it does have staples!! LOL

Oh are sooo easy! I'm glad you conquered your fears with me...I am still cleaning up glitter! Anytime you need help with a stapler come see me, I feel like I use mine all the time! LOL

Boy, those stapled ribbons look so cool--such a great idea, Mish. I need to remember this. It's a great design and help use up those ribbon scraps. Thanks!
