Happy Saturday! Here in my neck of the woods, we've been in a bit of a cold snap the last few days — what better time to curl up with a good book or three? And so here at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, we offer our latest challenge, B is for Books! A number of the sisters are bookworms, and we've been looking forward to this challenge. I pulled out all my book-related stamps, and while the collection doesn't quite compare to my stockpile of cat stamps, it's, um, sizeable. So I looked them over and managed to come up with something with at least a little bit of snark.
Not a very apologetic apology! These stamps are from a long-ago Simon Says Stamp kit... I pretty much never buy kits, but this one was books, so of course I did. I've even used it a few times! This was fun to make, especially the red book waiting precariously on the shelf. I _could_ have done some masking for the book pile at the bottom, but life seemed too short.
Then, while I had my book-related supplies out...
Tim Holtz blueprint stamp, sentiment from the same set as above. Kept the design clean in white, grey, red and black.
Another book stamp set! This one from My Favorite Things, paired with a sentiment from STAMPlorations. This time I did some masking, to add the mug and the napping cat to the scene.
This time the books are from a WPlus9 set (this one has books AND cats!) and another sentiment from STAMPlorations. A little masking again, to add the Stampin' Up mug to the book pile.
Also, easiest photo staging ever! I simply pulled a couple of my favourite author's books from my collection. People can collect more than one type of thing, you know! :P
We have book-related cards both with snark and without for your enjoyment on the blog today, from my sisters and our latest Queen of Snark, Cornelia! Be sure to stop by to admire their talent and be inspired!
