I know we are coming to the end of summer, but I just love this peachy, melon-y, light coral-esque color. This is the new diamond monogram with three letters a wonderfully classic shape, a little preppy but graphic enough for those that like modern lines. I have a two letter version and some alternate variations of this shape coming. I used the technique I mentioned last week of running the ink pad along the envelope flap for a hint of color.  I think it would be pretty to create a suite of stationery in multiple tones of the same hue, so a lighter version and darker of this ink.  I believe if you have your stationery at the ready you will be more apt to write that spontaneous note or send your thank you as needed. Did you know that it is never too late to send a thank you?  It's true! I am so happy with how these monograms are coming along, it adds a touch of elegance to your world. You don't have to use these for just letter writing, you could print your monogram on cloth napkins (make sure to heat set), get a special one made to use for embossing cookies, personalize your coffee mug for the office, the options just go on and on. The winner of this monogram is Mrs. Maria Elizabeth B., congrats!

P.S. If you want to try to win your very own monogram, check out this post for details, good luck!

Loving the calligraphy you did! It really is 'lovely'!! And the idea of running the ink pad along the envelope edge works well when you've stamped your monogram in the same ink :) love it! Btw, is the ink pad in this example the same color as the peachy blush ink you carry in your shop?

Thank you Merissa:) I am going to need you to come on the blog and share YOUR lettering secrets. I have never seen any penmanship neater + so uniform, ever! This ink is a sample called 'coral' it's actually darker and a little more garish in person, I lightened the whole piece in Photoshop so it was more the color I envisioned, lol;) Maybe one day a company will let me make my own ink colors and I can choose colors like this!

I await the day you release your own ink colors! That's a fab idea! And my handwriting :) geez thanks! I'd love to share my lettering secrets but I'm afraid I have none that will wow anyone. But if you have questions for me, maybe that will help because I really don't understand my penmanship myself, haha :D And I'm loving how you Photoshopped the coral color to what you wanted, it's what a designer would do :) and it looks amazing!
