Encouraging Words...

Hi folks...you may not know but I'm a real alphabet geek and have collected many stamps and stickers over the years so I was absolutely thrilled when Simon Says Stamp sent me the gorgeous Stitched Alphabet from their latest Encouraging Words release to add to my collection...

You can find all the fabulous ENCOURAGING WORDS stamps, stencils and dies HERE

And I just happened to have a couple of Distress Oxide backgrounds lying around in the cubbyhole perfect for making simple easy peasy cards dedicated to Alphabets...
I randomly stamped the letters and flowers with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and coloured some of the letters with Distress Oxide reinkers to match the colours in the background and painted White Gesso on some of the letters and the flowers...added Idea-ology Label Letters, Ranger Black Enamel Accents to the flower centres and a faux stitch border around the edge.

 I stamped the alphabet letters and small dot from the stamp set and applied Ranger Glossy Accents...
a great way to create your own enamel letters and dots and I couldn't resist using this stamp set for next week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge...

but hey it's Friday and the weekend beckons...have fun whatever you have planned and I'll see you all on Monday.
Toodle-oo for now

The letters on the first one are beautiful but that background is just 'to die for' - love it so much. Very clever use of the dot stamp on the second one, it makes a fabulous design background. Great sneak peek too, I look forward to seeing the big reveal. Have a lovely weekend my friend! Hugs, Anne xx

Ooo! Just came across your blog from a card on Pinterest- the distress oxide, Tim holtz Flower Garden stamps - BEAUTIFUL! I have then sat in bed looking back through your blog, I should be cleaning! Your blog is fantastic - I absolutely love your distress oxide work and the way you photo and record it all is great. I bought several of them at Ally Pally this year after watching Lavinia Stamps use them and was hooked. I will definitely be keeping an eye on your blog for some lovely ideas!
GREAT WORK!
