Encouraging words can have a positive influence on a person who is going through a rough time in their life. I am sure that from time to time, you have given and/or received positive messages.
Words of encouragement can be cute, but they also can be very powerful. The words are more than motivation, they can be empowering. We need to recognize the person’s ability, point out their potential and then challenge them to do it. Of course, the person has to be receptive to the challenge. You can help them be receptive by praising instead of criticizing, acknowledge that they have the ability to meet the challenge and make that challenge specific.
I used one of the new stamp sets and matching thinlits to create this card. This stamp set is very cute and the possibilities are endless. When I first saw this stamp set, I thought of a mother bird’s nest as there are shapes that could easily be viewed as eggs. Yes, you are only limited by your imagination,
Stamps: Swirly Bird, You’ve Got This.
Ink/Markers: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Soft Sky, Dapper Denim.
Paper: Whisper White Thick, Dapper Denim, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, It’s My Party DSP.
Accessories: Big Shot, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Home For Christmas Enamel Dots.
I also fell in love with the little sail boat. The sun was stamped in the corner with Daffodil Delight and one of swirlys added. The sun was masked and the sky sponged with Soft Sky. To create the water, scrap paper was torn to resemble waves and sponged using the new In Color, Dapper Denim. Finally, I added the swirly strips that were die cut using Dapper Denim and the thinlits.
The sentiment, “You’ve Go This” was added in Dapper Denim Ink.
I am sure that I will be using this stamp set again, but in another way. Remember, you will be able to order this stamp set and matching framelits on June 1st.
In the meantime, make sure that if you want any of the retiring products, get them while they last. You can view and order from my ONLINE STORE.
