Etsy Inspiration & Giveaway - South Bay Studio

I am proud to announce that South Bay Studio is our Etsy Inspiration & Giveaway sponsor this week. 

Kathi creates beautifully hand-crafted custom cards and original artwork.  From one-of-a-kind, colorful, intricately layered cards with designer papers, to miniature prints of original watercolor painting, you are sure to find something to suit every occasion. 

Kathi's Morning Ride print depicts a wonderful ride on a crisp winter morning through the beautiful countryside. This is a print of her original watercolor painting.  The print on watercolor paper has been dusted with glitter to give it that frosty winter morning look.  It reminds me of a wonderful Victorian Christmas morning.

You will also find beautiful card sets at South Bay Studio that are prints taken from Kathi's original watercolor paintings.  The cards are constructed of heavy feather-edge cardstock and of course, a hint of glitter for her wintery scenes.  These cards would be perfect for Christmas cards, holiday invitations or as a hostess gift. 

Some of my favorites include Cardinals, Morning Ride and Winter Cardinal card sets.

Kathi's one-of-a-kind handmade cards are truly magnificent.  She has a large selection of Christmas themed as well as Birthday, Just Because, Inspirational and blank cards.  She incorporates vintage photos, glitter, rhinestones and the finest designer papers.
