More Emerson quote cards :)

Back again today with three more cards I’m making for a friend to gift onto a friend :). In case you missed yesterday’s post (which you can read down below today’s) the only specification I was given was 13 specific quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson. 13 fantastic quotes, I might add.

Anyway, before I had received the actual quotes, I thought I’d stamp everything, using my Lawn Fawn alphas which I am so patrial too. However, once I received the actual quotes, AND made a mistake on the SAME work 3/4 of the way into a specifically LONG quote, I decided that some would have to be typed on a typewriter. Because I did not want to loose my mind :).

So, obviously I used Smitty’s ABCs on one of the cards, with a short/sweet sentiment. The other two I typed out and inked up (using Old Paper Distress Ink). The butterfly stamps - which I really, truly love, are Hero Arts. Patterned paper is from a 6x6 pad of Crate Paper’s Portrait Collection. Added in a few pearls, and a sparkly Copic to add some shimmer to the butterflies, and there you have today’s cards.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!


  1. This are absolutely lovely, Heather! And I love those Emerson quotes!

  2. These are fabulous Heather! I can't imagine stamping out those long quotes so I think you made the right choice in typing them. Typing has it's own unique look too that is so nice sometimes. It works perfectly! And by the way, you are seriously the pattern paper queen!

  3. This is quite a task you undertook, and each card so far has just been amazing. I really like the mix of the stamps with the typewriter and your use of patterned paper.

  4. all cards are beautiful! Luv the colors which matches the background paper! I have that hero arts butterfly stamp too, and luving it! So, all in all your cards are my fav.! :-)
