Hi there! Today we'd like to share some projects using the Book Stack Photo Stamp! This is a great stamp for all the book lovers out there, who doesn't love to curl up on a weekend (or any day!) and read :)
Our first card was created by Rachel Greig:
1. Stamp Torn Text Background onto a folded kraft card using Archival Coffee ink pad. Sponge around the edges using the same ink.
2. Stamp the Book Stack Photo Stamp onto white gloss cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink pad. Colour the books using various colours of Distress Markers. Sponge around the top of the image with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
3. Distress the edges around the stamped Book Stack using a paper distresser. Mount onto black cardstock then adhere to the front of the card.
4. Stamp quote from the Bookworm Rubber Stamp Set onto kraft cardstock, distress the edges and sponge around the edge with Archival Coffee ink pad. Adhere to card using foam adhesive.

I am a huge fan of books and reading. I spent many hours as a child in the library and with my own stacks of books surrounding me. I was thrilled to see the new Book Stack Photo Stamp!

2. Stamp Book Stack in the centre of one of the pieces of cardstock and cut out to leave a frame that fits the Book Stack image.
3. Stamp Book Stack on other piece of cardstock. Cut out image. Colour with water colour pencils and water brush.
4. Stamp sentiment from Bookworm stamp set an cut out the word 'read'.
5. Stamp Coffee Stain Eclectic Stamp randomly over the various images using brown dye ink.
6. Stamp Splatter Texture stamp randomly over the various images using brown dye ink.
7. Add foam squares to create a frame over the main image and attach to card base.
Connie Mercer has created a variety of projects, from book marks to book plates and a card! Perfect ideas for a book lover!
These are done using white tags. StampBook Stack Photo Stamp on the tags with green Archival ink. I created both tags at one time. Spray the tags using Distressed Spray Stains by Ranger. Blue, green, yellow and orange are the colors I used. Dry with a heating tool. Go around the tags with the sewing machine border found in the Stitched Borders stamp set. Using the Paint Splats set add some splats. Let dry. Speckle with black paint. When it is completely dry, if you like, laminate the book markers. Add different colors of trim for a finished look.
They make great bookmarks! Here's a card:
Stamp Gazette Background Stamp onto Kraft cardstock using black ink. Trim out. Use Stitched Borders and go around the Gazette with the sewing machine stitch stamp with black ink. Mat on black cardstock and then on Kraft cardstock. Stamp the Book Stack on white cardstock two times using black ink. Trim the book stack out and an extra book. Color the books with a PITT big brush pen by Faber-Castell. Stamp out a small Butterfly, for the top of the Book Stack, and color it also. Trim out. Adhere Book Stack to card front. Add the extra book to the bottom of the Book Stack. Add the small Butterfly to the top of the Book Stack. Add Read word to the bottom corner of the card.
A great way to use the Book Stack is to create book plates! They are really simple to make and look great on the inside cover of a book, especially for a book you are giving as a gift.
I started out by choosing my ink colors and stamping the Book Stack image several times on white cardstock.
Stamp the "clip" from the Mail Art set on the top of the Book Stack image. Trim out. Stamp the To: and From: on the Book Stack image in black Archival ink. Stamp the word "read" from the Sensational Quote Stamp on white cardstock and trim it out. Adhere to the top of the Book Stack. Use double sided tape to adhere on the inside cover of a book.
