Introducing... Good Thinking: Renewal!


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?

Crafting is my therapy.  If I've had a bad day or even if I'm tired, I always feel better after I have sat down at my desk and created something... anything!  Sometimes it's just sitting down and pulling out some of my many neglected products that gets my energy going.  So this week, I chose to grab a Ranger tag and have some fun with my Distress Inks.

I started out with large manilla luggage tag and some "Orange Marmalade", "Dried Marigolds", "Worn Lipstick" and "Festive Berries" Distress inks, wiped them on to my craft mat, spritzed them with water and dragged my tag through the inks and voila!  A multi-coloured, vibrant tag! I added some "Salty Ocean" ink after the fact!

I stamped the gorgeous sentiments from the Good Thoughts: Renewal stamp set and let them soften as I added more inks and water to create my tag.   I even used those darling feathers from the Marcella's Mixtape Vol. 1 stamp set!

To finish off my tag, I attached some inked up seam binding ribbon to match my tag colours and some twine through the hole at the top and then added a gorgeous vintage style brad to hold everything together.  I curled the twine around the end of my tweezers and applied some heat from my heat gun to get it to stay curly - cute right?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying all the amazing reveal days for Power Poppy!  Happy hopping everyone...
Today the Bloom Brigade is stamping out some serenity and they'd love to share a bit with you!

Ally this is so beautiful. I can't believe this started out as a blank canvas to this. Stamping helps me relax too. Coloring expecially. Really beautiful design here. My kind of colors.
