Once upon a time...

I created this deck of 44 (NOW 48) inspirational cards to bring you peace, connection, and clarity. Each card consists of a hand-painted Spirit Cat printed on one side and a unique healing message on the other. These Spirit Cats come straight from my heart and imagination. 

Let them into your heart and they will bring you playful and sweet inspiration each day. 

Love, Nicole

P.S. The artwork is complete. The writing and copy-editing are done. The box is designed. The manufacturer is in place. As soon as this campaign is funded, I can place the order for the Spirit Cats Deck. I’m ready to bring this deck to you.

How to Get your Deck:

Click the green "Back this Project" button on the upper right and select your reward. 77 decks are available for a $15 pledge. Once those run out, decks will still be available here for $20. You can get 2 decks for a pledge of $36. For additional decks, please read about "Add-on Decks" further down. 

I cannot guarantee the availability of these decks after this Kickstarter campaign so if you know you want one, now is the time to get it.

This Deck Can Help You: 

  • Expand your intuition 
  • See a situation or yourself in a new light 
  • Find healing during emotionally challenging times 
  • Get clarity and make confident decisions 
  • Connect with your dreams and desires 
  • Be more playful and creative 
  • Create a simple and peaceful daily ritual

Who would Love this Deck: 

  • Cat-Lovers 
  • Art-Lovers 
  • Tarot Readers 
  • People who Love Creative Play 
  • People Seeking Healing 
  • Modern Mystics and Witches
  • You do not need to believe in magic or have previous experience with Tarot or Oracle Cards to benefit from the Spirit Cats Deck.

How Anyone Can Use These Cards:

  •  Close your eyes. Breathe. Be still.
  •  Ask a question like: What energy will support me today? What energy will help me start writing my novel or living my dream? What energy will bring healing to my relationship? What will help me feel happier right now? What is the message for today? What will help me get through this challenging time? Or anything you can dream up. 
  • Pick a card. Reflect on the picture and read the inspirational message. What insights does this spark for you? What actions can you take to embody this wisdom in your day, your week, your life? 
  •  Keep the card with you for the day, put it where you will see it often, or simply put it back in the deck and carry it in your thoughts. There is no wrong way to do this. 

The Deck Specs

  • 44 square cards (Now 48 cards!) with rounded corners on thick, coated paper (thicker than playing cards) with vibrant illustrations printed on the front and a healing message on the back. 
  • Card Size: 3.75”x3.75” 
  •  Rigid, sturdy 2-part box

What People Are Saying

"During the time I had my kitty (over 20 years), I knew that he had a unique magical energy. The illustrations and words of wisdom in the Spirit Cat Deck capture this. Every cat-lover should have this deck for its beautiful images, its purely magical energy and its surprisingly accurate readings!" ~Janet Pacik

“I love, love, love your paintings of the cats! Your paintings have so captured the soul and spirit of these cats. Each painting is so different but in your style. I love everything about them. The stories you provide about each cat captures the essence and spirit of each… They are beautiful creations of creatures that so many love.” ~ Hamilla Jean

“I’ve been so touched by your beautiful cat paintings and their messages. It’s difficult to pick a favorite piece as so many speak to me. ” ~Tzipora

"Each cat is beautifully painted in watercolor and has it’s very own character and world. I love their inventive names...along with beautiful words and deeper thoughts...Like bits of poetry really! Your kitties bring joy and inspiration!” ~Eva Marion Seyffarth

"As soon as I saw Nicole's Spirit Cat paintings, I wanted to have every one of them. Now, I can! This deck gives me a chance to let all of these healing kitties into my life! I am so excited to begin this adventure." ~Ekaterina Rudneva

Risks and challenges

I have completed the art, writing, and design of the deck.
I have a manufacturing and fulfillment plan in place if we fund this campaign.

If it is wildly successful, I am ready to scale up.

Possible delays include: problems with sampling/color proofing, printing and shipment

Note: I have successfully printed products featuring my art before. I am committed to creating a beautiful product even if it takes a little longer. The shipment from the printer to me will be insured.
