SugarPea Designs-Talk Nerdy to Me

***  Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge!  ***

This month's SugarPea Designs challenge is an Anything Goes theme.  With a wide open theme like that, there's no excuse for not pulling out your SPD stamps and joining in!

Talk Nerdy to Me card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea Designs
I used the I Like Big Books stamp set along with the SugarCuts Brainy Bookmarks dies and the current sketch from Retro Sketches for my love themed design with a masculine twist.

I started out by using the large eyeglasses die from the Brainy Bookmarks dies to cut a pair of glasses from gray cardstock.  The frames were glued to acetate, then carefully trimmed.  This gives the lenses a glass-like look.

I found some masculine patterned papers in my stash and used them for the panels on my cardfront.  I arranged them on a piece of pale gray cardstock adhered to a dark gray card base.  The "talk nerdy to me" sentiment was stamped in gray pigment ink on a cream fishtail flag strip.  Once all the pieces were in place, I added the eyeglasses on top, using teeny, tiny pieces of foam tape for dimension.  A few red enamel dots scattered around the panels completed the design.
