Love to Scrap! Rubber Stamped Cards

The Challenge
Today is the start of Love to Scrap's Challenge #7: Rockin' Rubbah! The point is to use rubber stamps on any type of project. I made two cards using some Sweet Stamp Shop stamps. 

Card #1: Nerds in Love
I combined two set of stamps, a bookworm set with a chemistry set, since I thought they matched so well together. I stamped, colored and cut out two bookworms. The female one had little heart shapes at the end of her antenna. 

I replicated that shape on the card by using some May Arts wired cording. The cording will retain the shape created, so I twisted the ends into little hearts. 

I stamped some of the splatter images in different colors and circle punched them. For some dimension, I popped a few of them up with foam adhesive. I combined the stamps with Jillibean Soup's Atomic Soup collection, a must have for nerd lovers.

I'm entering this in:
ABC Challenge: O for Open
Lacy Sunshine: #9 Anything Goes
Card Makin Mamas: Rubber Stamps
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Sister Act CArd Challenge: #9 Anything Goes

Card #2: Monochromatic 
I wanted to try my hand at the monochromatic look and this is my first attempt. My natural inclination is  to scrap something bright and colorful. I chose brown as my color and went looking around for things in this color family from my stash.

I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of cork which gave a very clear impression. The cork wasn't specifically a scrapbooking supply, but just a plain sheet of cork used on disposable coffee cups.  I picked up a free book from a yard sale for the purpose of scrapbooking. I tore out a page and stamped some apple wedges on the book page and paper pieced it with my apple. The teacher in me was cringing at destroying a book, but it would have otherwise been thrown out. I added some seeds with a copper Pearl Pen.

I'm entering this in:
Sparkles Monthly Challenges: #44 Monochromatic
Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings!: #73 Masculine with Ribbon

Both cards are fabulous!!! First card is just cute, like the popped up splatters for dimensions. The second card is my favorite. I also like working with cork. It is hard to tear up books, but I love the look of it. Great cards Michelle!!
