Design Spotlight: Stephanie Laird

May 30, 2012

Today’s Design Spotlight shines on  Stephanie Laird – nominated by LJ Maxx – who has a dreamy style when it comes to photography. Thank you, Stephanie!


“Forever Free” was specifically designed as a horse sympathy card.  It seems to be my niche market, although I have cards for just about every occasion.  I find consolation in the fact that someone finds comfort in my words or image enough so to share with someone that is in need.  That is what is so great about Greeting Card Universe, you can literally find a card for any specific need or occasion.

My artwork is done using my photos and editing them in Adobe Photoshop Elements.  I have always loved photography but my pictures were far from interesting or spectacular.  I  found that with the help of Elements, my photos could take on a creative life of their own.  This inspired me to write tutorials on some creative techniques in Elements beyond just photo editing.  To see more on this you can visit my website.

I love the outdoors and am a huge animal lover.  Most of my designs are influenced by all the beauty that mother nature shares with us.

I am a huge fan of this site and feel honored to have a place here with the outstanding artists that are on it.

    Great to get to know you Stephanie. I love your art. As a matter of fact I bought this card of yours to give to a good friend/horse lover for her birthday. She loved it so much she framed it to hang on her wall. I am glad to get the chance to tell you that. Congrats on being in the spotlight. You deserve it!
