Everyone is going through something and we all need encouragment from time to time. You never know when the opportunity will arise for you to brighten someone elses day, whether it's a smile as you pass a weary mom toting three small kids in the grocery store or letting the person behind you step in line in front of you at the cash register. I was happy to spend some time in my craft room playing with a couple of new stamp sets I recently got from Altenew called Angelique Motifs and encouraging sentiments from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.
The flowers in Angelique Motifs set are incredibly beautiful and I just love seeing them come to life as I stamped each layer of color.
I stamped two different background stamps on this card. A grid pattern and a French botanical stamp from Heidi Swapp. The sentiments on this card and the card below is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps "Be Encouraged".
For the flowers I used Altenew's Red Sunset and Warm and Cozy ink cubes. The leaves are stamped using colors from Sweet Dreams.
I love this sentiment from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps "Hymn Blocks" set. If you love the old hymns and the encouraging words they give, you must check out this set!!
I've provided direct links on each item I've used for your convenience. By clicking on them, I get a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you. Thanks so much for shopping along with me and sending encouragment to others.
I'll be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Think Pink
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Time Out Challenge ~ Breast Cancer Awareness (Last card "Bright Hope for Tomorrow")
I hope these cards bring you some encouragement today as they brought encouragement to my heart as I was making them.
Thanks for stopping by!
