Try Me Tuesday *Double Stamping*

Hiya! It's "Try Me Tuesday" over at MyCreativeTime. Today we are doing "Double Stamping". Basically just stamping one image over another. I made a totally simple set of note cards. I started by using the Stitched XL Label die to create a mask from some Post-It craft paper. Then for each card I used the Coffee Backgrounds set to first stamp the argyle in a light color, and then the text in a darker shade. Super easy! For this first card I used soft brown and cup of joe shadow inks. 
For this one I used Bubblegum and Raspberry Jam shadow inks.
And for this last one I used Soft Purple and Grape Juice shadow inks. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more projects.

p.s. Before I took the masks off the cards, I outlined them with a marker in the darker shade to define the edge of the die shape. :)
