For the past week or so I've been printing like a maniac. My time to get things printed before the baby arrives is quickly coming to a close, so I'm trying to squeeze in as many projects as I can.
I've been printing a lot of personalized cards for family members for Christmas presents, so I can't show those to you now. But here are a few other things in the works at the moment.
These deer in a meadow cards were printed in a light blue ink color and will be available in my shop early next week.
And I printed a giant pile of these little guys to use as gift tags that coordinate with the Christmas card I'll be sending out this year. I still need to trim them down to size.
One of my main goals for next year is to launch a line of wedding invitations. I'm working with a friend of mine who is a brilliant graphic designer to develop the designs. This is the third design she's done for me, but the first one I'm printing samples for. This design will be available as one, two, or three colors. For the samples, I set the plates up for a two-color invitation, and I printed the first color--mandarin--last night. Early next week I'll print the second color, a hot pink.
Last week while I was printing with pansy ink, I tried out these plates as a single color just to see how it would look. I was just playing around, so the printing of some of the text isn't as clear as it should be, but I love the effect that you get where the color overlaps itself when printed as two different plates.
