Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Masculine Soaring Confidently

Hi friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month the men in our lives are the inspiration for the projects we are sharing. These projects were created by talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share projects with various design styles. You may have arrived from Sue Boerner's blog. I love her Sailing Home project!

My project features the Soar Confidently stamp set. This is a versatile stamp set! Perfect for masculine cards and fabulous graduation cards, too!

The sentiments in the stamp set are perfect for any male in your life, whether to point how wonderful they are or to wish a Happy Father's Day. 

My card was inspired by France Martin's Soar Confidently stamp set tutorial. She shared great tips for creating a water color background. Her tips are easy to follow - just check out my background! My water color background was created with Crumb Cake ink; I stamped the plane and sentiment on the front with Early Espresso ink.

To add interest, I flicked ink from an Early Espresso marker creating a distressed look.

I stamped the plane image on the inside of the card in crumb cake. I like decorating the inside of cards as well as the outside. I figure I already have the stamps and ink out, so why not. And it's easy! What are your thoughts on decorating the inside? I'd love to hear your thoughts, please leave comment!

  1. I agree with you. The inside and the envelope need to match the front of the card!

  2. Great card Terri! I love the old time look of it with the watercolor you did and the colors! And I definitely agree the inside and envelope should match, I also do it!

    1. Thank you! I love envelopes that whet the appetite for the card inside!

  3. Yes, something in the inside of a card really ties the card together. I love the simplicity with lots of interest in your card.

  4. I love those details inside, too. Thank you!

  5. Beautiful - inside, outside and envelope - it all works beautifully together.

  6. This Father's Day card is super. I love it! TFS
