Manly Thank You

If I am to keep up with my New Year's resolution, I better get posting here!

This card is one I have made a couple times when needing a masculine thank you, and I think it fits the bill...I also made it for my stamp club's thank you card swap a few months back. I use my card swaps to try something new or different...to stretch myself and hopefully learn something. I think I've been sucessful so far.

Anyway, back to the card. This is one of those Hero Arts collage-y type stamps that came out a couple years back. I really loved them all, but didn't buy them all, because I didn't know how I would use them. This one I loved the most and had to buy. I decided to keep the colors simple (safe) and cut out sections of the stamp (stamped a second time), mat and pop them up. I was quite pleased with the result.

Thanks for peeking!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season. My wish for you is a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.
Let's start the new year with a simple little number that uses Flower Soft. Really loved the stuff when it first came out. Of course, LOVED what everyone else was doing with it. BUT! then I had to use it myself...different story! I have found that less is more, and allowing a bit of your stamped image show through helps. C/S is SU!, image is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is Savvy Stamps. The image is matted and popped up off the card base.
Thanks for peeking!
