The entire 2015 Occasions catalogue (due out on Tuesday!!!) is full of wonderful ideas, especially Valentines day, but I was thinking about other occasions for some of the men in my life.
This new five piece stamp set called Adventure Awaits (137148) is more inspiration than the typical greeting. For a change of pace, Stampin’ Up! has also designed a photo paper to complement the more masculine types of card designs. Check it out:
The Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (137780) has a photograph on one side: a close up of a common item; an interesting texture; a familiar object… you get the idea. The reverse sides is a more subdued design like a tartan or darker design that also complements the Stampin’ Up! colours. I don’t want to say manly, I’d rather say a little more stately perhaps rather than floral or brightly coloured but they would be suitable for many occasions.
For my design, I used one that reminded me of the unsettled nature of an open ocean along with a stamp that complimented this idea. The sentiment is suitable for many occasions: a student leaving for college or a coworker leaving for a new career. The idea behind these stamps is to inspire and make a statement.
Here’s a closer look at some of the details on the card:
Tomorrow I’ll showcase another card from this stamp set.
