About Me: Hi, I'm Ramelle, a grandmother of six, living in the beautiful Northwest, who loves photographing nature, especially flowers and scenery (and our backyard squirrels, of course). I've used many of my photos, as well as my original oil paintings and pencil sketches, to create cards for "Eloquence," my online card store.
My Interests: In addition to art and photography, I am a writer and am working on my first novel. The grandkids keep me on my toes, as well. Life is good!
Welcome to my card store: "Eloquence." I have created a variety of designs from my own photographs, my original oil paintings and sketches, and from adapting art from the Old Masters which is now in the public domain. I especially love the art of Carl Bloch (1834-1890) and his lovely depiction of Bible scenes. I have adapted some of Bloch's paintings into updated card designs for you, using digital art techniques.
I have also developed a line of Jewish and Messianic Jewish cards for various holidays as well as invitations to Bat and Bar Mitzvahs and weddings.
I will be adding new designs every chance I get and will be happy to accommodate any special requests whenever possible. Come on in to my store and browse. Just enter a Keyword (such as Chanukah, Christmas, Birthday, etc.) to the box in the side bar on the left of this page to search my gallery. Thanks for visiting Eloquence!
Dear Ramelle: Your cards are perfection - from the images to the verses. I'm so thankful that creative people like you exist to enrich our lives with your talent.

Dear 'Guest' (from 2-17-15)
Thank you for your kind words regarding my Chinese New Year designs. I love making them and am already working on my 2016 Year of the Monkey designs. I took my best-selling Year of the Ram design and adapted it for the Monkey. You may see it via this link: http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/holidays/chinesenewyear/2016yearofthemonkey/general/chinese-year-of-the-monkey-1361216
Also, thank you for your suggestion about the Chinese Valentine's Day cards. After your excellent suggestion, I have been researching the Double Seventh and Qixi Festival. I have also written to the GCU administration about adding that Chinese holiday as a new category. I appreciate your bringing it to our attention.
Best regards and Happy Chinese New Year,
Ramelle | February 17, 2015
Hello Ramelle: I want to personally THANK YOU for designing such BEAUTIFUL Chinese New Year Greeting cards!
I happened to look on the website for other holidays and I would like to make a suggestion for a NEW greeting card that is not currently in the choices for selection.
Everyone loves Valentine's Day.....but I looked ahead for Chinese Valentine's Day and their is currently not a choice for that holiday! (Chinese Valentine's Day for 2015 is August 20, 2015. That should provide you with plenty of time to design one. I know this will be received with great support within the Chinese community everywhere.
Please send me a follow-up on this....Thank you!

Hi Ramelle! I love your cards and your recent Design of the Day (Wedding Greeter card) really touched me and got me enjoying a laugh unlike any I've enjoyed in a long time! I was inspired to use it in Corrie's "A Little Help From My Friends" blog contest (http://gcucommunity.com/2012/01/26/contest-a-little-help-from-my-friends/). Here's the link to my blog post: http://ilovecuttables.blogspot.com/2012/01/mash-up-fun.html Voting is from Feb. 2 - 7, 2012 and if your card gets the most votes, we'll both win a $10 gift or 5 free GCU cards. :) So if you have a Facebook page or other social media outlets, please post a request to your friends to vote for it. :) And good luck! ;)

Your store certainly bears the right name - your cards are indeed eloquent (or clever!). I LOVE how they make me feel - so I trust how they'll make my friends and family feel. I'm glad I've found my source for cards.
