Hello Note Cards Floral Series No.1

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hello All,

I can’t even begin to describe to you how excited I am to share with you a series of notecards I have created. They are grouped in sets and are absolutely stunning in person. I tried my best to capture how colorful they are in pictures. These cards feature a gorgeous floral pattern on vellum and coordinate beautifully with the flat matte cardstock and gold cord. The interior of the cards are left blank so they are fully intended for any purpose and occasion. The bold hello sentiment is layered with dimension and even has a bit of a blue shadow peeking through.

Here’s a closer look!

Each card measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches and fits beautifully into a standard A2 size mailing envelope. I can’t wait to send these beauties out in the mail soon!

Felt Heart Pins

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories, Room Decor

Hey all,

There’s a part of me that just loves the calming feel of stitching. I wish I was far more advanced at it, but I guess I’m more on that “practice makes perfect” path. I recently had a few friends that have asked me if I could convert some of my plush felt stitched hearts into pins. What a great idea!

I decided to take things a step further by embroidering a little floral arrangement on the hearts as well.

Not only is this great little decor, but oh boy does they stand out with the pin trend that everyone seems to be on lately!

I used a 1.5″ gold bar pin on the backs and adhered them in place. I added some stitching to them just to reinsure they stay put.

These coral beauties measure about 3″ x 3″ and packed with cotton filling.

So Happy for You

Hey all,

I’m in the process of creating all new cards for my etsy shop, private sales and consignment. Needless to say it is quite the task so I don’t plan on having much in store until Sept 7th.

In the meantime I’ll post a few peeks at cards I’ve creating in the brainstorming process of items I will put into the store.

Today, I wanted to play around with some neutral colors that could be used for multiple occassions. This card features striped and geometric patterns mixed with a very floral. Typically I wouldn’t think to mix the two patterns together, but I think in such a small amount it’s quite pretty.

Also, I’m trying to use up some of the paper flower embellishments I have in stock. Here’s one way to to use them – as centers to illustrated flowers!Happy-Floral-Card

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back with an all new card real soon!

Christmas Card Using Acetate Sentiment

By Cards

Oh What Fun

It’s almost Christmas time! I’m getting into the spirit of the holidays and wanted to share a holiday card I made. It is a very easy to make and has great detail. I recently discovered acetate embellishment packs at my local craft store. This pack had beautiful vintage style prints on the clear plastic material. To adhere the pieces down I used some liquid glue on just the parts that had print on them (so the glue wouldn’t show through the clear parts). I couldn’t believe how quickly a card could come together using this type of embellishment! How fun!

As I am getting more and more into cardmaking it is becoming clear that I need to invest into some better quality materials to work with. I especially feel the need to invest into some thicker cardstock than I am currently using. These last few weeks of creating have me feeling so inspired!
