My printed greeting cards are usually printed on an inkjet printer onto cardstock. I decided to experiment with an image transfer technique that I think will give them more ump and offer more variety to my greeting card line. It's suggested that this technique will work best from an image printed on a laser jet printer. Since I only have an inkjet printer, I was lucky enough to find a tutorial using inkjet. My finish piece is above and I am very pleased with the overall look. I like the vintage feel and almost stamp like quality of the print. Here are the steps to trying this technique out if you are interested in learning something new and fun (it is so easy):
1) Print image on transparency film from an inkjet printer. Although the transparency film I used was meant for color laser printers (what I had available), it still worked out great for me.
2) Once image is completely printed, I quickly placed it on a white cardstock (ink side on paper), pressed it and rolled over the image about 10 times with a brayer.
3) Lastly, I carefully lifted up the film from the cardstock and there you have it - an image transfer! Check out this website for visuals of the technique, if you're more of a visual learner like me. I hope you have fun! Good luck.
By the way you, can use this technique for photographs as well and not just illustrations.
Side note, due to time constrictions, I've decided to push the launching of my online shop for Summer 2016.
Hey All, I am excited to give you a sneak peek of a few greeting card designs that's part of a black and white collection I've been putting together that's inspired by my minimal lifestyle journey. My approach is to use few words and crisp text while adding simple elements such as shapes, line and color to each design piece. As in my photography, I love the bold, clean and sophisticated combination of black and white, either on a black or white background. To learn more about minimalism check out these inspiring blogs, The Minimalists and Becoming Minimalist. Stay tune for more designs that'll be offered on my personal greeting card online shop (hopefully, launching in 2016!).

Inspired by love, family, and friends I designed these photo greeting cards for any occasion. My first real attempts with designing photo cards digitally. It was more challenging because I had to be more detail oriented so the designs would not bleed into the customizable photographs.

I took this photograph of my Shih-Tzu, Zuke, who is so still as if ready for his close up. I was inspired to create a card with this photograph. The theme in mind was to make it simple with text, because the overall essence of the photograph are simplistic, subtle and airy in nature.

Words can be very powerful. It can inspire but also tear down, so I consciously try to speak and think loving words to others and myself. The latter being the harder area as we tend to be our worst critic. Since we cannot contemplate two things at the same time, it's helpful to think of words that are affirming and I personally try to meditate on scripture daily. Praying I'll be more focus. I have experimented with incorporating inspiring, thought provoking, and silly words into my greeting card designs. Below are a few samples of what I came up with.
These are age specific greeting card designs that I have been working on. Project so far will consist of ages 1-10 years. My idea started off with the number as the focal point and eventually I added design elements. Very fun and whimsical approach.
