Some New Prints

I've been taking a little break from blogging to work on a bunch of new prints and card designs. These are a few of them here. I'll be back soon with some new posts!

Quick and Easy Valentine's

Here's how my daughters' are putting together their Valentine's Day cards for their class parties on Friday. My youngest daughter has to label her envelopes with numbers instead of names which makes things a little easier. My other daughter is going to stamp her friends' names on the tags.

So up top is what the cards look like on the outside and below is what's on the inside. It's pretty simple. If you can't tell, those red candies are Swedish fish to go with the "U R A CATCH" hearts.
And here's what we used to make these super quick and easy Valentine's Day cards. 

Heart and tag craft punches (or cut out shapes with scissors)
Hot pink card stock
Mini kraft bags
Alphabet and letter stamps
White ink pad
Mini clothes pins
Individually wrapped candies (we got ours at Party City)

1. Cut or punch out heart and tag shapes. Make sure the hearts fit inside your mini bags. 
2. Stamp messages on the hearts and numbers or names on the tags. I had the girls write their names on the back of each heart. 
3. Put the hearts and candy inside the bags. Fold the top of the bags over and clip with mini clothespins. Slide the name tags in place.

Bluet & Clover on Etsy

For those of you who are new to my blog, I used to sell linocut prints and stationery in my Etsy store. After putting my shop on vacation mode for most of 2014 so I could focus on my day job, I'm very excited to announce that I'm back in business! 

 I've been busy designing new prints and photographing my existing prints to give my shop a bit of a makeover. 
 All the artwork is original and printed by hand from my carved linoleum blocks. Most prints are $15 and shipped within 3 business days. 
 So be sure to check out the shop and stay tuned for some fun new prints.
