Emerson quotes card sets...

Good morning! How was your Valentine’s Day?? Mine was nice, we took the kids down to eat pizza/walk on the beach and get ice cream. Was a nice family night.

Anywho, I have some cards to share, as a friend of mine contact me last weekend to see if she could order a set of cards from me. They’ll be a gift for a gal in her online moms group - HOW SWEET! She wanted a set of 12 cards for the friend, and 1 to give to her along with the set - 13 cards total. She wanted them all to have specific quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson (LOVE!) And so far, I’ve created 9 of the 13.

My strategy in creating them is to make 4 sets of 3 like cards and then I'll make a uniquely designed card for her to give the friend. Today I’ll be sharing 3 of them with you :).

As you can see, I've been working with Distress Inks here. Having some blendy fun! Also I've (clear) heat embossed some Hero Arts stamps onto white (Neenah) cardstock and inked/misted over them. Fun stuff right here. Of course, I had to incorporate Lawn Fawn Alphas (I've used Jessie's ABCs, Sally's ABCs & Smitty's ABCs between the three) and also on one of the cards I threw in some leaves from their Blissful Botanical collection, and on another, I added birdies from the Fly Free and bannerific sets. The mist is Perfect Pearls. Loving this mist!!

Anyway, that's my crafty share for the day. I hope you have a good one & see you tomorrow with 3 more cards :)


  1. Oh these cards are stunning!!! Your friend will be so happy with them! :)

  2. You've really transformed the white paper into something awesome!

  3. Man, that must have taken FOREVER to line up all those letters! But wow, was it worth the effort! Beautiful cards.

  4. Beautiful backgrounds! You did an amazing job.

  5. GORGEOUS! Great work with the distress inks!
