Thanksgiving Photo Cards by Delphine for Cardstore

Thanksgiving photo cards by Delphine for Cardstore 2013Our new Thanksgiving photo card collection for Cardstore is live!

Hook Cardstore up with your address book and they’ll even handle the envelope addressing, stamping, sealing and mailing for you. Easy as pumpkin pie! Some of these cards are a whole new look for us (hello, watercolors), so please let us know what you think of the new designs.

Porch Posies | A Pretty Fall Floral Color Palette

color palette porch posies aubergine violet chartreuse green via delphineFlowers blooming on vines that wrap around porch columns and garden trellises, flowers spilling out of planters and window boxes … these are the scenes of Charleston that never grow old. I spotted these purple flowers hanging from a neighbor’s chartreuse porch and had to sneak a photo. Aubergine and chartreuse green always hues look great together. It’s an unexpected, slightly wild, but elegant color palette for Autumn, taken right from Nature herself.

San Rafael | Font Geek

San Rafael Font Love via DelphineCrystal Kluge has done it again! Another perfectly charming font. The San Rafael font is sorta girly, sweet, and on the casual side, but still sophisticated enough for a wedding invitation. I think it would be particularly fun for an autumn apple picking party invitation.

sweetest treat of the fall season: candy corn

candy corn brachs packagingThis morning while fixing breakfast for my son I wore a sweater over my pjs … it’s officially Fall in my book, now. One thing that I look forward to each year is the return of Brach’s candy corn to the store shelves (and my belly).

I’m not too crazy about the new packaging. It’s not that it isn’t well designed … I like the layout just fine (and you know I’m a big fan of white space). I think candy corn is one of those nostalgic childhood memory type things … I miss the old packaging. Does that make me old?

September 2011

Calendar by Delphine September 2011It’s September. It’s back to school time. Back to regular schedules, bedtimes, carpool … blech! I’m in denial, hence the tardiness of this Welcome September 2011 post. I sincerely wish summer could last all year, don’t you?

color palette: puppy love

I pulled inspiration for this soothing autumnal color palette (full of soft taupes, pinks and greens) from one of my favorite photos of all time: a portrait of a toddler with her puppy. Photo by the extraordinarily talented kids photographer Jessica Davis Photography.
