I have another new stamp set to show today. It is from the Mini Catalog and one that I have had, but have not inked up until now. I do love it! The stamped images are very detailed and stamp beautifully. It is the Soar Confidently stamp set. I needed a masculine card and gave this one a try.
I kept this very simple in terms of how much extra I added on. It is for a young man and I didn’t think he would care for much bling! I did use the Painted texture Embossing Folder again. I really am excited every time I see all of the texture it leaves. It may not be the perfect “sky” but I think it works well for it.
I stamped the hot air balloon and colored with patriotic colors in Light Real Red and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Since the background sky is blue, I thought those colors would work well. I stamped the balloon in Night of Navy Ink. A Tip: let the Night of Navy dry a minute or two before you begin coloring or it may bleed over just a bit. The balloon is raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals to add to the 3D effect of it floating.
I fussy cut the balloon and it was a really easy one to do. For the sentiment, I used one from the stamp set. I stamped it in Real Red on White cardstock and used the Banner Pick A Punch to get the banner tip on one end.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please come back tomorrow for another new project.
