The Violet Flame

The Making of: The Violet Flame Card #12

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Violet Flame    

Transmutation

If you’ve been feeling negative, if you’ve been in a bad mood, it’s time to heal. Get quite, visualize the Violet Flame flowing all around your body. You’re surrounded in violet, in high vibes, in good energy, in healing energy. It’s time to transmute negative emotions. Embrace them, get to know them, learn from them, but don’t hold on to them. Let the negativity flow right out of you letting it be replaced by Violet. 

The Inspiration and Meaning of this Card

I was at a holistic expo and had an aura photo done. It’s a unique experience. You place your hand on this little device that reads your energy. In the end, you get a picture of the different colors that appear in your aura. I’m a yellow-green aura, at least on that day. The interesting part of this reading though was that my crown chakra was violet. The woman doing the reading said that while most people have white up there, it’s the healers who have purple. She told me of the Violet flame and it’s connection to St. Germain. The Violet Flame is here for us to use to heal ourselves through transmutation. Say you’re in a bad mood, you can visualize the energy of the violet flame surrounding you, burning away the negative energy. You’ve just transmuted your bad mood into a good one, or at least into a calm on. 
I created this card to remind me of that flame, of that energy, and of that gift that we can access when needed.

Soul Temple Card #11

The Making of : The Soul Temple – Card #11

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Temple of My Soul

Sacred Inner Wisdom

Go inward. Your soul knows. Your soul knows what you need, what you desire, the answers to your questions. You just need to journey into your inner temple and discover what’s there. Be still, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and you’ll find this temple tucked away in the jungle. 

The Inspiration and Meaning of this Card

I’m in a group called Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell, I’m also part of her Soul Blueprint course. I’ve also read her books and own her card deck. You could say I resonate with her work! One of the meditations in the group and course led us to our soul temples. Visualizing each detail, what it looked like, where it was, who was inside. This is what I pictured. A rose quartz pyramid, among

the Full Moon - Card #10

The Making of : The Full Moon – Card #10

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Full Moon

Moon Magic

The Full Moon has a cycle like all things. You too are part of a cycle. You will go through many different cycles in your lifetime. Know that each cycle does not last forever. Now is the time to go within, release what is no longer serving you, and then shine your brightest self out into the world. 

The Inspiration and meaning of this Card

I painted this card on the Full Moon because that is the time for releasing what no longer serves us. It’s a good thing to remember during any time of the year. To release what doesn’t serve our highest good. The moon cycle also reminds us that we all have a cycle. There are cycles through all of nature. If I pull this card on a day where I’m depressed and anxious, I am reminded that this is just part of the cycle, it’s not forever. We cycle through the good and the bad, the light and the dark many times throughout our lives. With each cycle, we learn, we grow and then we release what we no longer need.

The Heart Card #9

The Making of : The Heart – Card #9

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Heart

Now is the time to root down into the base chakra. Root into the earth, to rise up. When you root, you begin to heal and align all of your chakras. SHE will tell you what you need to do for your highest good. When this card appears, it’s time to take care of your physical and emotional heart through exercise, healthy foods, and soul work. 

The Inspiration and meaning of this Card

This card is all about the chakras, and aligning. I created this card during heart health week, because we need to care for our physical heart, so that we can keep using our emotional heart. The heart of course is our heart, the thing that keeps us alive. Red for the root chakra, and then each color layer out from the heart shows the rest of the chakras. We need to balance all of them, but we have to start somewhere. I liked the idea of doing a more anatomical heart for this drawing rather then the basic ❤️. It provides more meaning for me that way.

Falcon - Card #8

The Making of: The Falcon, Card #8

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Falcon

Trust your instincts. Feel it in your body, notice how you feel with each choice, each opportunity. Get crystal clear on your vision, on what you desire. Once you make your choice, commit, fully dive into it and experience every moment. Know you’re on the right track. 

The Inspiration and meaning of this Card

This is one of my earliest cards. I wasn’t taking notes on each one as I went then, but I know how often falcons fly around here. I know that animals come to me as I’m driving in real life and in visions while I sleep. Falcons are signs of needing to step back, look at the full picture, each of the options. The part that has stood out to me, is seeing that they are a sign of feeling into your body – the emotions and feels that come up when making a decision. 
I’ve created this card with my Inktense pencils. While many of these cards are quick, one layer drawings, I took more time with this one. It’s several layers with drying time in-between. Sometimes it’s nice to take a little extra time with a card because I love the process and because animal portraits are my favorite!

The Scales - Card 7

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories.

The ScalesGoddess Ma’at – Balance

What is out of balance in your life right now? How can you adjust the scales to bring things back into balance? Connect with your deepest desires, and realign with them. This may require some shifting of priorities, but it’s important to care for yourself.  When you do this, make sure you tell the people that need to know, don’t hide your plan or your needs. The balance you seek won’t come if you’re only balancing when it’s convenient for others. 

The Inspiration and meaning of this Card

The Goddess Ma’at was my guiding Goddess for a month earlier this year. She was pulled for me by my friend, Kerin, for one of her groups. Ma’at fit well for me that month. She is the Egyptian Goddess of justice, harmony, and balance. She weighed the soul on the scales opposite a feather. This is what we must do in our lives. Weigh the things we have on our to-do list against our values, our desires. We must determine what we actually need to be doing, and what is just really out of balance. When we have clarity, we can adjust. But first, we must become aware. When I pull this card, I know that it’s time to look at what I’m doing, how I feel when I’m doing it and adjust.

How to Create Your Own Oracle Cards

It's been over a year now that I've been creating my own cards and I want to share with you a bit about my process.

Tools

These are the tools that I use, which you can gather yourself, or pre-order my Oracle Card Kit here.

  • Watercolor Paper
  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Waterbrush or paintbrush with a dish of water

Intention setting

Before I meditate, I'll set the intention that I am open to receiving a message. If you have a particular situation you want to resolve, or something you know you need reminders about, your intention could involve asking to receive guidance on that subject. A couple of examples:

My intention for this session is to be open to the guidance from my Angels. This session will help me hear the message for my first card and visualize the card.

My intention is to be open to guidance from my Angels regarding _______. Through this meditation, I'll receive the messages I need to resolve this situation and the message for my first card.

Short meditation

Next, I'll meditate. Sometimes I'll do a guided meditation, and sometimes I'll just get quiet and calm and see what comes through. Many times now the messages will appear in day to day life, but when I first started, it was always with a meditation.

What message came thru the meditation. Use this asWhen the meditation is over, write down everything you heard, saw, felt, experienced through it. It doesn't have to have great grammar or make sense to anyone. Just get it all down on paper quickly. In the next step, you'll get to write a more coherent message. If you saw images, you can make quick sketches, or describe them. Include the colors, shapes and anything else that you remember about them.

Story writing

Now is the time to get clear on the message and create your card's story. Here are some questions that I ask myself when creating a card.

  • What message came through to me?
  • Why did that message appear now?
  • What am I meant to learn from this?
  • Is there a time when I experienced this before?
  • Did this appear in a dream?
  • What happened then?
  • What should I feel when I see this card?
  • What might be happening in my life when I pull this card in the future?

After I've answered some questions like these and journaled about it, I start writing a message. This is a message that would be great for me to hear anytime. Think of a guidebook you've looked at from other decks.

How to use the tools

If you're using the pencils I have, Derwent Inktense, then you'll start by drawing the image you came up with on your card. I use watercolor paper by Fabriano Artistico because it holds up to all the water.

You'll want to do all of the drawing work first before you introduce water. I generally go over with a few layers of pencil because I love color! When everything is drawn out, it's time for the water! I use an Aquaflow brush because it makes it super easy. I use the brush as I would with paint, following the lines, and use the water to create lines, and patterns if necessary. It's a pretty magical process once the water is added. Finally, I let it dry for a while before adding it to the rest of my deck for use.

Tiger Card - #6

The Making of: The Tiger – Card #6

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Tiger
Never Fear Passion and Power

Now is not time to run from your desires. Turn around, face them head-on. You must remain focused on these goals as they will produce abundance. Create a sacred space where you can go alone in order to recharge and refocus on these goals. The passion and power that arises from that recharge will last awhile. This is a new adventure, it’s not to be feared even if it makes you tremble. What you most desire is just on the other side of that energy, when you step into the flow, you’ll create space for your desires. 

The Inspiration of this Card

In my dream I was running down a wooded road. As I ran, there was a tiger on the side of the road. It surprised me, and then it began coming after me. I was surprised by the tiger, and while I was afraid, it didn’t seem to stop me, the fear didn’t seem to be coming from the tiger itself, more like from my own abilities and desires.
The dreams that are incredibly vivid to me are the ones that I write down and remember for awhile. These are the ones that carry the most meaning for me, which is why I look into the meaning of it and turn them into cards. Dreams let us work through things, but also let us open more to our clairvoyant natures. 

The Meaning of the Tiger

Tigers are symbols of courage and personal willpower. Which tells me that by running away from the Tiger in my dream, I’ve been afraid of what I’m capable of. I’ve been running from success, running from the messages I could be receiving, and running from my desires.

The Making of: Angel Wing – Card #5

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

Angel Wing
Mother Earth Magick

Thank you for reminding me of your presence. Your Angels want to work with you, but you have to ask them for help. Here on Earth, you have wings of your own, you’re doing your Earth Angel work. Ask your Angels for assistance in that work. Always remember to come back to your own personal practice, as much as you help others, you mustn’t forget about yourself. Without your own Spiritual Cup full, you can’t help the others. 

The Inspiration of this Card

Nothing fancy for inspiration here. Simply the reminder that I can’t help others if I don’t help myself first. If I don’t keep up with my own practice and work with my Angels, I can’t help others. 


I chose the colors intuitively. I didn’t think about it at all, I just grabbed what my hand touched. 

The Meaning of the Angel Wing

The wing itself, of course, is a symbol of Angels, of flight, of higher perspective, of freedom. 

The orange is all about ambition and having a global impact. For me, it’s the basis of where my business begins, orange. It was the first color that I was drawn to for Studio429 and it’s carried on through everything. 


The blue is a symbol of confidence, relaxation, and flow.

Hawthorne Tree

The Making of: Hawthorne Tree – Card #4

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

Hawthorne Tree
Nematona – Sacred Spaces

Connect with Nematona through sacred space. You have all the answer you need inside yourself, sometimes they just get lost in the chaos. Now is the time to root down outside, experience the beauty and magick the world has to offer. Learn to create that sacred space inside, your house and your own self. Root, Wild Heart, Root. 

The Inspiration of this Card

I received a Goddess of the year from my friend Kerin, and so far, it couldn’t be more accurate. Reading the 2019 Goddess Report she created for me, I knew that I was connected to Nematona, and I knew that during some times of this year, I might need a reminder. She’s all about creating sacred space in nature. 
I used the Hawthorne Tree because when doing research, found that Nematona was connected through the Hawthorne trees, which is shown here on the card. 

The Meaning of the Hawthorne Tree

The tree shows the light and the dark, yin/yang, masculine/feminine. It has beautiful flowers but contains thorns. It is highly sought, but never in the house because it has a horrifying smell. The tree is also a historic symbol of magick and farie and welcoming in happiness and spiritual grounding. I think this is why Nematona is associated with the tree.
