I am SO EXCITED TO SHARE THIS WORK WITH YOU! 

I present to you... The Amulet Friends Oracle! 

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign a few years back, I was able to bring the "Holly Simple Tarot" deck to life. This deck changed my life and continues to work as a healing tool for people all over the world today. It is an honor and a privilege to create work that serves your higher purpose!  I have since created my first oracle deck "Fuzzy Prism Oracle" and a host of other fun books, comics and more! 

(these goodies can be found on my website www.hollysimplestudio.com).

This brings us to today...

I have experienced a new wave of inspiration and soul lessons and am grateful to share these with you!

Amulet Friends Oracle is a direct response to the last year, where I deepened the understanding of my heart and soul's potential. The designs for this project came to me during my time spent in New Mexico. I was inspired by the subdued Southwestern color pallet, local street art in Taos and Santa Fe and of course... the HIGH VIBRATIONS of the beautiful Desert Lands. After a profound, sacred and romantic experience, I was called to create my 3rd deck.

The Amulet Friends Oracle Deck is a 77 oracle card + guidebook set. The cards will nestle in a luxe orange velveteen bag with the mini guidebook atop. Both with then be tucked away in a super durable custom designed 2-part box. Like a baby shoe box!

In addition to the Southwestern influence, artwork for this deck is also inspired by traditional tattoo flash, Buddhist Deities, and vintage Prayer Cards.

Why the name "Amulet Friends?"

An amulet is typically worn or carried for protection from negativity and harmful energies. My hope is that this deck brings awareness and feelings of ease and comfort, much like an amulet or sacred talisman. The "friends" in this deck are all of the animal characters on each card. For me, messages and clarity are very often shown through nature - specifically birds and squirrels!!!! They are truly my friends and guides. We all have the ability to befriend nature and source protective energy through meditation, crystals, talisman, amulets etc. Through this visual tool, I have unleashed our Amulet Friends. Let them guide you in your personal practice of building and enhancing your connection to the Divine. I am confident that the Amulet Friends will work in partnership while you walk, live and experience your unique and beautiful journey.

What are oracle cards?

So, Here's the deal:

In order to make this epic deck happen, I need a little help to get it printed! Like last time... I need to order it in massive bulk, which in turn makes it accessible to you and all of our fellow seekers!!!! This is a HUGE cost, and not something I can without your preorders. Your preorders of the Amulet Friends Oracle Deck (through this campaign) help me to get this project off the ground!

The Project:

77 unique works of art (the cards), each is hand-illustrated, inked then colored digitally! I am also writing and illustrating a mini guidebook that will be included with the deck. Both cards and book will live in a custom designed 2-part box! Deck and book will then be self published by Holly Simple (THATS ME!)

The Challenge: 

In order to make this deck accessible and AFFORDABLE, it needs to be ordered in bulk (like BIG BULK... like the thousands!) and this is a large cost! The more I order, the more ideal the end cost is for YOU.

The Solution (HOW YOU CAN HELP!): 

All preorders and donations through this campaign allow me to foot the initial cost of getting this deck and book printed. By preordering, you are getting a slightly discounted rate compared to the final retail cost. Also, shipping costs are less for both domestic and international delivery during this campaign! :)

End Result:

DECKS FOR YOU, THEM, THEY, US!!! I am hoping you connect to this deck on a deeper,  soulful more inspired level, as that is the place I am existing in while working on this project. My dream is for this deck to ingnite others to seek, find clarity and move through awareness and awakening. I believe this deck will be a part of your personal spiritual growth and journey!

Blessings Drawings:

Some time ago, I began including unique doodles in my Tarot and Oracle Master packs. In time I realized these drawings were actually being used as Altar pieces by some! This inspired me to create actual "blessings" cards, drawn or painted with intention! As rewards options, I have created some prints of my most fave Blessings Drawings along with the option of a one of a kind, hand inked, colored and FRAMED Blessings Piece!
