Hello friends!! Have you been enjoying the Power Poppy previews? I know...Marcella has done it again!! What a fabulous new release, eh?
Well, today we are featuring a set filled with a wonderful variety of encouraging, beautifully written sentiments!!! It's called Small but Mighty Affirmations. I couldn't choose just one to make a card with, so I decided to make them into magnets for my fridge. They would also make great gifts to encourage a friend, or your kids. I was just thinking I could have used more shapes too, like hearts, stars and even squares for a variety.
Watercolor is all the rage right now, so I took some Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock, spritzed it thoroughly with water, and then added my Distress Spray Stains: Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmalade together, and Peacock Feathers with Twisted Citron. I then diecut two different sizes of circles (Stitched A2 Banners and Rectangles ~ JustRite), stamped the inspirational sentiments with Versamark, embossed them with Detailed Black ep (Ranger), and added Glossy Accents (Ranger) over each one to make them shiny. They look even more bold and brilliant irl. Oh...I also diecut adhesive backed magnets with the same dies and adhered the sentiment circles to them. Voila...easy-peasy!!
That about sums today's project up. For some more inspiration, check out the following Bloom Brigade Blogs:
