Whiff of Joy Blog Hop

Hello! Today I have the privilege of blog hopping with Whiff of Joy!

These stamps, designed by my friend Stephanie Schütze, are beautiful! They are artfully themed, and come in deeply etched red rubber, with cling backing. This is the set I received:

Paper Art Stamp Set

And this is the card I made:

Beth Pingry Whiff of Joy card

I stamped the stacks twice for each image, then colored the book covers with colors that reminded me of old leather-bound books. I used Thin 3D Foam Squares, and 3D Foam Squares (regular thickness) on every other stack, to give them dimension.

For the open book, I stamped twice, then fussy cut the top page, folded and curled the page, and adhered to the book with MyStik® Permanent Strips (because I can dispense them 1 at a time) and then added a 3D Foam Square under the page to give it dimension. Here’s a side view:
