Let's Be GEEKS Together...

Anyone that knows me well, knows that I can be a little "geeky" at times.  It is something I use to hide, especially when I was much younger.  But with age, I have grown to appreciate my "geeky-ness" and embrace it.  :)

[I know my husband is reading this and laughing at my confession and thinking "little geeky?"...to which I will now say - WATCH IT MISTER!]

Anyway...I not only telling you this because the Spectacle stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Shop is amazing, but I totally and whole heartily ADORE it!  Just look at all it cuteness...

I mixed this stamp with Authentique's Celebrate 6x6 bundle 
(and yes, I am still in love with 6x6 pads)!

I stamped the large glasses twice so I could trim out one set and pop it up on the other set which gives it a nice shadow effect and lots of dimension!
And as you can see from the stamp set, the "Let's be GEEKS together" sentiment is all within one line.  To break it up, I move the stamp on my acrylic block and only ink the pieces I want placed.  You can see in the photos above, I move the stamp three times to break the sentiment up to give it a whole new look!

Supplies:
Cardstock: White (Recollections)
Pattern Paper: Celebrate 6x6 Bundle (Authentique)
Ink: Black Tuxedo (Momento)
Staples: Blue (Making Memories)
Pen: White Gel (Sakura)
Punch: Double Embossed Dotted Lace Edger (EK Success)
