Simple Sympathy


The layers technique is used here where you put a small amount of adhesive on the back of the smaller white to temporarily attach to the larger white piece. You can use your finger to de-sticky the tape adhesive a bit so it is more removable.  Stamp the leaves image all over and then peal apart to layer in the Mint Macaron piece (cut only 1/4" bigger than white).  Make you you line it back up when ready!

Paper: Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Summer Silhouettes, Teeny Tiny Wishes, "For You" from Crazy About You
Ink: Crumb Cake (stamped off), Mint Macaron
Accessories: Mint Macaron 1" Dotted Lace trim

Manly Thank You card


I was asked if I had any manly Thank You cards. I thought about it for a bit and try to determine what was "manly", so I opted for a simple clean TY card and this is what I came up with.

Paper: Basic Black, Typeset Specialty DSP, Lost Lagoon, Very Vanilla
Ink: StazOn or you could use the new Archival Blank ink
Stamp Set: Another Thank You (photopolymer)
Accessories: It's hard to tell here but I did do 1/2" lines on the Lost Lagoon using the Simplyy Scored Diagonal plate to give some dimension

Enjoy!
