Hello + Lettering Class!

Hello hello! Hope you are having a great weekend! I’m at a crafty retreat and my MIL is here too, I brought this card to give to her. Was so good to give her a card in person!


The brushstrokes were done with acrylic paint — I got the idea from Wilna’s Color Theory class at Studio Calico. Enrollment is closed right now, but if there’s ever another class by Wilna you should jump right in! I’ve learned so much from her and it’s just a joy to watch her videos.

I used Studio Calico’s Color Theory acrylic paints and then various ones from my stash — see list below. You’ll be seeing more of the deja blue — it’s such a pretty blue. In love.

The die cut is this one from Hero Arts — it’s becoming a fast fave. It’s Kelly Rasumssen’s handwriting — love her writing so much!

Speaking of loving lettering — did you hear that Studio Calico is going to have a lettering class in April? I am so in! I don’t hate my lettering, but then I don’t really love it, either.

love your lettering by studio calico

  1. Lisa, I just love this card, and I’m sure your MIL did, too! Such darling elements, especially that sweet bird and heart! And is that a strip of washi?

      It’s a little strip of patterned paper but I bet you could use washi tape instead too!
