The Paisleys & Posies stamp is such a unique stamp with a lot of potential.  This card was made using Bermuda Bay  cardstock as a base and then stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with Copper Embossing powder.  Doesn't it look just stunning?  I then stamped and embossed the sentiment as well and cut it out using the Layering Framelit Ovals.  The background is using Crushed Curry cardstock.  I then used our Bermuda Bay markers and colored in small sections to add color to the front of the card.  What do you think?


You can order any of these items through my On-Line store HERE and a list of items I used is below.

One of A Kind Card Consultation Service

Hi everyone-as the New Year approaches, I am adding a NEW One of a Kind Card Consultation Service.  This service evolved from my previous year of working with a Kentucky company where I designed and created over 250 Birthday and Anniversary cards for their management team.  The company has been extremely pleased with my service and have placed another order for 130 cards for the upcoming year.

After my conversation with the General Manager's assistant, I thought this would be a great way for me to provide you this service.  The details are listed below:

  1. A 30 minute one on one consultation with me to collaborate in designing 1-2 greeting cards you can mass produce.
  2. During our 30 minutes we will discuss items such as favorite stamps, colors, sayings and design features.
  3. After our consultation I will design the cards and provide you the actual cards along with a full color tutorial and supply lists for you to use to mass produce your cards.
  4. If you are interested in having me mass produce your cards we can discuss the costs for that as well.

Our meeting can be done in person or if you live outside of my area we can meet online through Skype.  My service is perfect for mass producing Birthday cards, Wedding Cards, Get Well or any other type card you have a need for which will "WOW" your friends and family!

The fee for this special service is $47.00.  Call or email me today to schedule your appointment as space is limited.
