CARD: Soar Confidently

Good morning!  I had some time to play yesterday, and designed this wonderful Father's Day card for two challenges!!  First, the sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches, and secondly, a theme challenge from Inkspire Me!


I combined some new supplies with the old!  Okay, actually, the only "new" item is the Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon -- it's it pretty?!!  And, working in the aviation world, I just love this biplane from the Soar Confidently Stamp Set!

Here are the two challenges:

and, here are all the supplies I used on this card:

CARD: Soar Confidently

Yes, another card with this awesome set!  I am so sad that it will only be available through the end of June--it's didn't make the cut for the new Annual Catalog!  So, don't be surprised if you see it alot from not until June 30th!  It's such a great set, especially for the men in your lives!!


It doesn't open the "normal" way -- it's like a notecard on the front of a card!!

CARD: Soar Confidently (Fun Fold!!)

Today's card features a great masculine set found in the 2021 Jan-June Catalog:  Soar Confidently.  This is a wonderful set for all the men in your life--great sentiments, too!!

And, check out the fun fold!!


You could also add a pocket on the middle panel and put a gift card in there! 

As usual, here are the supplies used -- simply click on them to be taken to my online store!


CARD: Darling Donkeys

I know I said the Flower & Field DSP was my favorite Sale-a-bration item, but Darling Donkeys is a very close second!  He's just so darn cute!!!  Here's a super quick card--you could make a pile of these in just a few minutes!


I used the In Good Taste Designer Paper for the fence posts -- there are several designs in the pack that could be used!  The Donkey was colored in with Stampin' Write Markers (Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink).

Supplies used:

CARD: Happy Thoughts

So, the challenge over at the Less is More blog is "chocolate"!  Interesting, right?  Of course, with it being close to Valentine's Day, my first thought was chocolate candy.  BUT, as I played around a bit, my card took a different direction!  I went masculine with all things Early Espresso--ribbon, cardstock, ink!  Enjoy!
