They’re up!

The Mother’s Day greeting cards are up in the Etsy shop, CutieQ Cards n Crafts!

There are three card designs.  I made four of each card design.  That means each of these cards are in very limited quanities, so if you would like to purchase one, act now!  Once these are all sold, then they are gone!

I’m also asking that if you want to make a purchase, please consider purchasing ON OR BEFORE APRIL 30TH.  This helps me make sure that they get shipped out in time for Mother’s Day.

I will also be sending limited quantities of all of these cards to the flower shop, All That Blooms, in Chino Hills, CA.  I sell my cards there.  If you find yourself in that area, please stop by and look at the cards I have for sale.

Are you ready for Mother’s Day?  Make sure you have the perfect card!

If you’ve followed this blog for awhile, you should know that I have an Etsy shop.  This blog entry will most likely be one big shameless plug for my shop, but hey, I gotta do it sometimes!

CutieQ Cards n Crafts

I’ve had it for years, but when we made the decision for me to quit my job to be a full-time stay-at-home mom, I wanted to put more effort into this shop and make it something worthwhile.

I decided that the shop won’t just be about cards.

The name says ‘cards n crafts’ so I wanted to also focus on some other crafts that I could sell.

I’ve always made banners for parties and occasions.  So I took one banner I had already completed, took a photo of it, and posted it in the shop.  That banner in the shop happens to be my best selling item.  I get at least one order for this banner a month, which actually fulfills my ‘one sale a month’ goal.  To view the best-selling banner, click here and it will send you directly to my Etsy shop.

I also started selling ribbon clips in my Etsy shop.  I’ve always been a fan of clean and simple designs, so these ribbon clips are the perfect reflection of my style.  Click here to see the various ribbon clip sets I have for sale.

Cards are still an important element in my shop, and I try to keep up to date with holidays, but it is pretty difficult.  I was barely able to get some Valentine’s Day cards into the shop.  Luckily, I put out a few and sold a few.

In the processing of moving back into the house and clearing/cleaning up my crafting work space, I found a bunch of cards.  I’m currently in the process of taking pictures of them and creating shop listings for those cards.  They will be one of a kind.  Once they sell, they probably won’t come back due to the new system of card making and selling I am implementing.

But I’ll save that for a blog post next week….

In the meantime, please feel free to visit my little Etsy shop, the link is above.

I do take custom orders, so if there is a banner or card you would like me to make, you can always begin a conversation with me on Etsy and I can help you with what you would like!

Ok, shameless blog post about the Etsy shop is over.. thanks for sticking around!

 

 

There are some techniques I have just learned to fall in love with.  Heat embossing and water color resisting is one of them.

I love the resulting look of this technique so much that I decided to create a card set around it.

That’s how the Birthday Stars Card Set was born.

UntitledBirthday cards!  Everyone needs birthday cards, right?

UntitledThere are people born everyday, hence, a birthday is celebrated everyday!  What better way to be prepared by having a card set of birthday cards on hand?!

UntitledDon’t be caught without a birthday card on someone’s birthday.  By owning this card set, you won’t have to drive out to the closest store to buy a birthday card at the last minute.

Every card is handmade.  That means that the card set you receive may not look exactly like you see in the photos.  But that’s the beauty of handmade.  Give the gift of a one of a kind, handmade birthday card to someone special.

This card set is $20 + $6.50 shipping. These cards are made to order.  Please allow approximately 1 week after receipt of payment for the card to be shipped out to you.

Please visit the Etsy listing here for more information.

Last week, I introduced you to my very first card set for sale.  You can see the card set by clicking here.

My goal is to reveal one new card set a week.  I’m hoping to start adding them into my Etsy store, but I’m waiting until I get about 5 card sets before I do so.

This week, I’d like to show you the “Hello” Card Set.

Untitled

Haven’t you ever found yourself in need of a card and no time to go to the store?

If you purchase my card sets, you will always have a card on hand for those “just in case” moments!  This cards are perfect because they are no specified for just one type of occasion.  With a stamped “hello” sentiment, you can use these cards for a birthday, a thank you, or just a ‘thinking of you’ moment!

I had a lot of fun making these cards because they were using one of my favorite color combinations.  Red, black and white.  I always find myself super inspired when I make cards in these colors.

UntitledEach card set revealed costs only $20 plus $5 shipping.  Please allow 1-2 weeks AFTER receipt of payment before I ship them out since I have to make them to order.  Like all things handmade, the finished product may not be exactly the same as what is shown in the picture, but it’s definitely made with the same love and care as the ones in the photo.  That’s the beauty of handmade, right?
