    Chuffed to bits with these individually crafted 'we've moved' cards. Totally perfect for slipping inside the Christmas cards we're going to send and so lovely to have something unique and handmade to such a high quality. Highly recommended!

Updates

New birthday card series in production - different numbers and colour schemes will be available soon. Plus, did you know shipping is free to all mainland UK destinations?
You know it’s been a good day for card-making when you’ve filled two bins with scraps!

About

Discovering wellness through arts and crafts.

Hi there! My name is Natalie, and I am the owner of StonetableDesignsUK, an etsy shop selling original, handmade greetings cards and paper gifts.

I've always been arty and crafty, but it's only recently that I've started selling my work. In late 2016, I became very ill with depression and anxiety, and, at times, getting through each day seemed more than I could cope with, but things have been improving since February 2017 (Thanks to my family, friends and our wonderful National Health Service!) and a big part of my recovery has been discovering wellness through engaging in arts and crafts. I began by making cards to send to my family and friends - everyone was very encouraging about them. Then I made a bunch of cards to sell at a charity craft fayre. To my surprise, I sold 50 and raised over £100 for the charity. This gave my confidence a boost, so I made some more and started sharing them of Facebook, and, again, people kept buying them. These days, I'm also often asked to make bespoke cards, and find myself regularly taking commissions. I still can't quite believe it!

I've had lots of positive feedback on my work from folk on Youtube and Instagram, so setting up my own etsy shop seemed the next logical step in my arty journey. As I make every product I sell here individually, no two items are the same, so when you purchase from my shop, you can be assured that you are buying something completely unique. I use a variety of techniques and materials including: watercolours, inks, acrylics, vintage papers, buttons, crafty gems and collage. I love all things art deco and art nouveau - my favourite designer is Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Bright, vibrant colours and strong, bold lines make my heart sing, so you'll often find a lot of whimsy in my work.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss commissions.

You can find me over on instagram as @crafting.out.loud.
