#InspireMe – Christmas Card Collections


I’m always on the lookout for ways to incorporate the things that I see in the world into new designs that fit my style. Today I thought I’d share some of these images that have gotten my mind whirling as I design my Christmas card collections for 2015!
Olive Wood Designs - #inspireme - Tales of a Peanut

I love the mix of old wood, new wood, and pattern that Olive Wood Designs is using in her projects. The distressed texture against the smooth is a wonderful contrast that gets my mind spinning into ways that I could incorporate that into my designs for the new Christmas card collections.

Norman Gordan Home - Gilded Edge Geode Necklace - #inspireme Tales of a Peanut

My Mom gave me two necklaces for my birthday that are natural stones with a gilded edge and they’ve become some of my favorites. This one from Norman Gordon Home has the same edge and I love the contrast of the rich colors with the shiny gold. Using vibrant colors but throwing in a pop of gold is something I’m trying to work out for my Christmas card designs. It can make an otherwise flat design pop!

While I love the traditional red and green of Christmas, I have also been drawn lately to more non-traditional colors like this frosty turquoise, pink, and blue. Jennifer Hayslip did an excellent job decorating her home in these non-traditional colors and documented it on her blog. My mind is spinning now!

Elevate Conference - Design By Tales of a Peanut

After working with the wonderful ladies of Elevate Everyday on their design work for their May conference I am constantly thinking about how I can incorporate black and white stripes along with bright colors in my Christmas collections. Look for lots of glamour options!
