Our final NSS 2016 Sneak Peek comes from the talented ladies of Missoula, Montana-based Noteworthy Paper & Press (booth #2141)! This year, Noteworthy Paper & Press is expanding on their collection of hand illustrated and hand lettered cards that speak to a love for nature and the beautiful world we live in. In addition to nature-inspired greeting cards, they’re also debuting flat-printed cards and art prints featuring painted sceneries with hand lettered inspirational quotes. They’re also adding screen printed tote bags, zip pouches, notepads, and (my personal favorite) colorful letterpress die cut state postcards!

Happy Monday everyone! DC has apparently decided that ALL the flowers should bloom at the same time: lilacs, tulips, azalea, wisteria… everywhere I look there is something in bloom! And the iris, peonies, and roses aren’t that far behind. After months of winter, it’s so nice to have color in the world again! We’ve been spending our weekends visiting our favorite botanical destinations in the area, from the U.S. Botanic Garden to Dumbarton Oaks Gardens to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate. Today I thought I’d celebrate my favorite season by rounding up a few floral stationery favorites, from art prints to greeting cards to notepads!

Sometimes I feel such a connection with a card that it’s hard to imagine that it hasn’t always existed. That it wasn’t just always there, somewhere, somehow, out in the universe. I occasionally have this feeling about songs and paintings, too, so I think it must be something about my emotional connection with a particular work of art that I just can’t imagine that artwork not existing in the world. Anyway, I have this exact feeling about several cards from Katie of Odd Daughter Paper Co., including her I love you more than tacos card, which just makes me smile every time I see it. I was surprised that I hadn’t already rounded up a few of her cards and prints in a quick pick post, so let’s take care of that right now!

Happy Monday everyone! Today I’m SUPER excited to share something completely brand new for OSBP: limited edition art prints! I’ve been wanting to do this for so long (like years and years), but finally had a spark of inspiration after the Paper Party that I hosted back in May. Our first print is a recreation of the gorgeous floral and calligraphy art print that Jenna of Mon Voir made for the gallery wall at the Paper Party. I loved (and still love) that print so much that I wanted to make it available to all of you, too.
So our very first art print: The Earth Laughs in Flowers! It features the most amazingly vibrant pink and red watercolor florals and deep green leaves. The watercolor floral elements were all hand painted by Jenna, then digitally printed in beautiful saturated color on archival smooth cotton paper with a calligraphed Ralph Waldo Emerson quote printed in matte gold foil. I’m completely obsessed with matte gold foil – it’s just the perfect amount of shine!
The print measures 11″ x 14″ – which is my favorite size for art prints. It’s big enough to look substantial and make a huge visual impact on your wall without costing an arm and a leg to frame. I’m kind of addicted to gorgeous art prints and can never have enough beautiful art to fill my home, so I can’t wait to do more of these limited edition collaborations with some of my favorite talented artists, calligraphers, and illustrators in the future!
We printed a limited edition run of 100 hand numbered prints – and once they’re gone, they’re gone! You can grab the limited edition print right here!
Artist Kristy Rice has spent the past few years creating some of the most striking hand painted invitations and wedding stationery through her company Momental Designs – you can see plenty of evidence in her Rolodex page here and in past features on OSBP here! Yesterday Kristy launched a brand new website where you can now find everything from original art pieces and gold foil art prints to wallpaper (!!) and phone cases with her beautiful floral patterns! Kristy is also offering bundles of hand painted notecards and some adorable baby milestone cards!
Isn’t it all just so pretty?? You can find more from Kristy right here!
