D.I.Y. Tarot Decks

October 2nd, 2012 § 2 comments § permalink

If you’re a crafty Tarot enthusiast who’s interested in making your own deck, you might want to check out the video below by Isis Chandler from The Do-It-Yourself Pagan.

Chandler has put together a very detailed step-by-step description of the process, from gathering your supplies through to the final lamination.

She’s inspired me to get myself a laminator. I’ve been holding off for a while now, but I think it’s finally time. It really makes the cards look great.

And if you want to try making a deck yourself, but don’t have any designs to work with, feel free to download the images from my Georgie’s Tarot.

Have fun!

The Perfect Card

August 6th, 2012 § 5 comments § permalink

I know my birthday was a week and a half ago, but I can’t help but make one more post about it.

Well not really about the birthday itself, but about one of the cards I got.

It’s from my parents and was hand-made by my artistic and very crafty mother.

As you can see, it’s a cut & paste motif featuring myself as a card reader and my dear friend Madame G as my client.

Inside the card is my mystical feline associate, Carl JK, posing as the Bohemian Cat Oracle and predicting a positive new year.

And it came in this card encrusted envelope!!

I just LOVE it and wanted everyone to see!

Thanks Mom!! (and Dad) You help make birthdays and fortune-telling fun!

Talk about card crafting craziness!!

Take a look at how Donnaleigh de LaRose uses some glitter nail polish to turn an ordinary Lenmorand deck into one that shines.

Very nice … I’m definitely going to be doing this with some of my Tarot cards.

Glass Tarot Magnets

December 23rd, 2011 § 2 comments § permalink

glass tarot magnets

I’ve obviously gone crafting crazy this past week. This is the second post in just two days about Tarot crafts.

On Wednesday, I wrote about making your own deck using pictures from magazines. Today I’m talking about making a magnet Tarot with flat-bottom clear glass beads.

Leisa ReFalo was the first to inspire me to combine glass beads with Tarot. I saw some that she’d done a couple of years back at BATS and just loved them.

Then last month on Beyond Worlds, we had a Tarot Tip from Linette Voller on how to make Tarot weights using the same technique. After the show I ordered supplies.

the world and its glass magnet

Of course I ordered the wrong thing. The beads I ended up with were much bigger than I’d intended, but at least the magnets were strong enough to hold them.

I shrunk down pictures from the Rider Waite Smith deck and put each on a coloured background using Photoshop. Then I printed out the tiny pictures and cut them all out to fit the glass beads.

I used Diamond glaze to glue the picture to the glass, and added an extra backing of white paper so that the magnets wouldn’t show through the image.

Now that they’re done, I’m glad I got the wrong size bead. Each one is big enough to show the whole card, but still small enough to be adorable.

They can be used for readings, ritual, or just to stick on your fridge.

The whole process is kind of addictive. Once I started shrinking down Tarot images, I began thinking of all the other types of pictures I could shrink down and glue to glass.

The possibilities are endless. I’ll be making more.

Some Tarot From Etsy

August 20th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Not long ago, I wrote about April’s Army Tarot Project, created by fans of the site Regretsy.com. I even donated to the project and can’t wait to get my copy of their deck.

Regretsy is a comedic site that pokes fun at items for sale on Etsy.com, which is an on-line market focusing on handmade goods and crafts.

Regretsy can be really funny. But in fairness to Etsy, though there are some questionable items on sale, there’s also a lot of great stuff made by skilled artists, artisans and crafters.

And if you do a search for Tarot, you’ll find over 4,000 listings, though most are for readings rather than Tarot related items or crafts.

Sakki-Sakki Tarot

But there is a lot of Tarot stuff. Decks for instance, and some really nice self-published ones.

I noticed Beth Seilonen’s shop. Her decks are fabulous. And Monicka Clio Sakki is selling her Sakki-Sakki Tarot, a favourite of mine.

The Tarot Reader - The Bohemian Tarot Bag

Tarot bags of course are a hot item, and I especially liked the Bohemian Cat ones by Baba Studios. They have gorgeous bags of all types, but this Tarot reading cat is my first choice.

There’s also a lot of Tarot jewelry – bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and most interesting, ‘fascinators’, which I’ve discovered are hair clips.

Magical Tarot Fascinators

Here are two Tarot Fascinators I was particularly fascinated by.

The first, because it’s probably the most novel use of extra cards I’ve ever seen.

The second because I’m impressed by the unexpected union of the Tarot and burlesque. The name intrigues as well – Small Disappointments.

Tarot dress

Then there’s this Tarot dress. It’s kind of pretty. Perfect for a Tarot conference, though maybe a little too much card for everyday wear.

The Lovers Cross Stitch Pattern

For the avid needle-working Tarot fan, there’s the Lovers Tarot Card Cross Stitch Pattern PDF. I ordered one of these, and can’t wait to get cross stitching.

And finally, there’s the 50 Tarot Fortune Slips in a blue organza fortune flower. I’ve included this last item mainly because I like the dog.

So there you have it, some highlights from the Tarot section of Etsy. But there’s so much more. Take a look for yourself sometime.

Whether you like the things or not, it’s fun just to see what people are making.
