Soar Confidently for a Vintage Monday Morning Live

soar confidently for vintage monday morning live 1

Do you remember seeing the Soar Confidently stamp set on page 70 of the Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue? It's one that could easily skip your notice. It's not part of a big suite or bundle, but it has some unique features that you can create some pretty cool effects with like I did here with this vintage look card.

I recall seeing vintage sepia photos that had been hand coloured for an effect that looked something like this:

hand coloured sepia

That was the effect I was going for when I created this card. I stamped the images from the Soar Confidently stamp set on Crumb Cake cardstock using Soft Suede ink and coloured them in lightly with Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler Watercolour Pencils, then used either a Water Painter or a Blender Pen to move the ink from the many lines over these images to create a sepia tone. This will be the effect I demonstrate on my regular Monday Morning Facebook Live on my Playing with Papercrafting Facebook page at 11 am PDT. When I'm finished I will upload it to YouTube and post it here as well. You can find the materials and measurements listed in this post.


Here's a closer look:

  • On a Crumb Cake card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" on the long side, a background piece of Soft Suede cardstock, 4" x 5 1/4" was added and on that a piece of the World of Good Specialty DSP cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" was centered and adhered.
  • Another piece of the World of Good Specialty DSP (the Misty Moonlight with the brass gridlines) cut at 1" x 4 7/8" was backed with a piece of Soft Suede cut at 1 1/8" x 5" and sponged on all sides with Soft Suede ink. A piece of the retiring Braided Linen Trim (I'm sure going to miss this!) is tied around this piece vertically as shown above. Make sure to watch the video for a cool hack for this! Then this panel is adhered to the far left side of the card front.
  • The balloon image is stamped in Soft Suede on a 2 3/8" x 3 1/16" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. The stripes are coloured with a Night of Navy watercolour pencil while the stars are coloured with the Cherry Cobbler version. Then, using either a Water Painter or a Blender Pen, the Soft Suede ink is moved over the image from top towards the bottom, following the lines of the balloon. This panel is then sponged with Soft Suede ink and mounted on a Soft Suede panel cut at 2 1/2" x 3 3/16" and mounted on the bottom right of the card front.
  • The airship is stamped on a piece of Crumb Cake cut at 2 3/8" x 1 5/8" using Soft Suede Ink again. It's coloured in with Cherry Cobbler watercolour pencil then the Water Painter or Blender Pen moves the Soft Suede ink as before. Then that panel is sponged with Soft Suede before mounting on a  2 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece of Soft Suede and adhering to the card front.

The sentiment is from the Soar Confidently stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede on a 5/8" x 2 5/8" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, notched at one end with the Banners Pick a Punch. It's sponged with Soft Suede again and mounted on the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
