New Words, Words, Words at PaperArtsy

Hello all!  I'm thrilled to be starting the year with some new word stamps at PaperArtsy - and the themes of the new stamp sets are designed with new starts and fresh momentum in mind.  As well as a Spring Edition - perfectly timed to blow away those winter blues - I've got a couple of really motivational sets to share with you, full of positive thinking and philosophical wisdom.

So do hop over to PaperArtsy to check out my first samples with the three new quotes sets, all in a pretty springtime palette using some of Seth Apter's new paints, and also using some of the other brand new PaperArtsy stamps.

EAB06 The Spring Edition - full of seasonal quotes: 


EAB07 Dreaming & Doing - about dreaming big and putting those dreams into action:


EAB08 Strength & Courage - about digging deep to find the power to change the world, or at least your world:


As well as my samples, you'll also be able to check out an alternative take from my wingman - a PaperArtsy debut for the brilliant Amanda of Moments of Inspiration, who will be up on the PaperArtsy blog just half an hour after me.  And you already caught a sneak peek of how these new quotes work in the shabby chic world of the wonderful Jennie of Live the Dream earlier this month.

I hope you enjoy seeing the new quotes put through their paces, and I hope you'll be as inspired by them as I am.  I'll be sharing some more how-to details on these samples over the next days and weeks, so do keep your eyes peeled...

The beginning is always today.

Wow, love your new stamps and especially your samples. Love Love Love the backgrounds, they have a real romantic feel, blues and pinks are always my favourite colours. Would love it if you were able to post a step by step 'how you did it'. I think the effect you've created is beautiful.
Thank you, Rachel x

Congratulations! Have just looked at the samples - really beautiful. I hardly ever use the following word, as I think it has become so devalued through overuse, but here goes - INSPIRATIONAL.
