I adore the image of the spectacles on the Bookshelves unmounted rubber stamp sheet, and since I feel pretty comfortable with a craft knife, I thought I'd kick around a few ideas.
Some of the stamp sentiments we used this month really tickle my funny bone. I found myself giggling as I was making these cards! Giggling is healthy. That's why my future's so bright, I've gotta wear shades. And I wear my sunglasses at night, too. Just sayin'.
Here's how it goes:
1. Stamp those cute specs onto a card panel with Mahogany ink. Use a craft knife to remove the lenses. TIP: rotate the paper as you cut so that you're always holding the knife comfortably.
3. Stamp the UM book image (from the Borders & Backgrounds sheet) and trim it from the paper. Fold it in half along the spine, and bend the pages between your thumb and a bone folder to curve them a bit. It really adds some nice shape to the card!
Just in case it's hard to see, these are the quotes I used:
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."
"Never judge a book by its movie."
"Book lovers never go to bed alone."
"Nothing beats curling up with a good book when there's housework waiting."
"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it."
Good times, I tell you. Good times,
Oh, I almost forgot. Our winner from last month's hop was Shelly Schmidt, Comment #33. She won a $15 gift certificate to do some shopping at Club Scrap.
