What I’m working on—I’d love any feedback

Friday, February 8, 2013

 I’ve started to notice that my virtual shelves are clearing out, and when that happens’ I usually start creating new items for me shop. Since I make so many different things for many different occasions I feel like I’m not really that awesome at creating solid collections; or, maybe I have trouble with it because I have a short attention span, haha. When I was making purses for my first shop, Nicole Marie Handbags, I used to love doing it but I’d always day dream about buying stamps, trying out screen printing, and just being an overall super-craft person. I love all things crafty, and I just can’t stop trying different things…it’s just too much fun. But, moving forward, my boyfriend bought me a really cool Bamboo table for Christmas and I started learning how to use it; and, even began editing pictures with it—but I also wanted to get creative with it so I started turning my paper drawings into digital sketches to make some cool cards. I definitely love using the tablet for this purpose but now I’d like to push my limits and see what else I can create with it. Perhaps my own pattern paper designs, wall art, and more! Below are pictures of all the things I’ve been working on: Cards, cupcake toppers, and a new stamp! I’d love to hear what you think!
The, ‘You shine like a…(star)’ card is Gabes’ (my boyfriend) favorite, hehe. This card was creating on Illustrator and handwritten by me. The, ‘I love thee/Happy Anniversary’ card was handwritten + a font I downloaded from dafont.com. I think this simple yet cute card is adorable, I like it.
Next, I created this card or stationary perhaps, with a starry night/mountain theme. I think this one turned out to be my favorite. It’s funny because when I drew it I didn’t think it was that cute, until I printed it—now it’s turned out to be my absolute fav! I also made this super cute floral wreath ‘Happy Birthday’ card. I drew the floral wreath by hand using the tablet and Illustrator CS5 but the free font was downloaded from dafont.com. This floral wreath took me literally hours to do (the first time), and while I was nearing completion of the image, my computer shut down on me! I was so upset—but I just did it all over again, hehe. I was happier with the final result the second time around though, so that was great.
If you read my Wednesday post, you may have already seen this super cute card. I made it using a few stamps sets created by, Lawn Fawn, my favorite stamp company. To find the stamps I used you can click here
Next I wanted to create a new set of, Mr. and Mrs. Cupcake toppers for my shop because I felt the ones I already had in my shop were a bit dated—I think they’ve been in my shop since I opened, and it was about time I made some new toppers. 
Lastly, is this new hand carved stamp. If you’ve followed along with my hand carved stamp adventure you’ve seen all the other stamps I’ve created—and this is the most resent one. I’m still working on making about 10 stamps before I have them available in my shop. So stay tuned for that! Well, thanks for stopping by again and I’d love to hear your thoughts on my new things! I love reading all your comments and I apologize if I haven’t been replying to them all in time. I still read them though, and they always make me smile.  Have a great weekend!
