Good Thoughts: Renewal ~ PowerPoppy

 



With on-trend typography designed by Marcella Hawley, Good Thoughts: Renewal will end your search for "just the right" rejuvenating words! This all-sentiment set measures 4" by 6" and is loaded with 16 images. Take a deep breath in, exhale out and stamp up some serenity. Now doesn't that just feel better?

I am so in love with the variety of sentiments in this set.  There is truly an encouragement for any situation.  I am a firm believer that life can look pretty ugly at night when you're tired and have had a rough day or week, but the mornings usually seem a bit brighter, and strength is renewed to face whatever has been coming at you lately.  So I thought I'd combine these 3 sentiments:  "Breathe in...Breathe out...Things are always better in the morning."

 I stamped the sentiments with Smokey Gray Versafine ink onto the decorative Paper (Vintage Spring Basics by Maja Designs), and diecut the frame and tag.  I then added some sparkle and embossing powder to the edges along with some flowers and ribbon.



Here are a couple of close-ups so you can see how beautifully fonted the sentiments are.


  That's it for my project, today the Bloom Brigade is stamping out some serenity and they'd love to share a bit with you, so if you haven't already, check out what soothing inspiration the rest of the team has to share.

Wow, Tosh, your work has been spectacular in ushering in all the excitement about Power Poppy. Can't wait until tomorrow. I don't know how you ladies top yourselves, but you always seem to.

Gasp! This is so delicate yet full of texture! Oh how I love it!!!!

Leslie Miller said...

The color and all the subtlety of this is just wonderful! Of all things that are quietly spectacular about this, I'm especially partial to the sentiment tag. It appears the sentiment is part of the designer paper. I love it all!

You are so right, my friend. Life usually does look better in the morning after a good night's rest. :) You have such a knack for shabby chic, soft colors, texture, beautiful layouts, and just the perfect embellishments. I would love to watch you in action some day! This is one gorgeous card!
