Quick Pick: Kristy Rice

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!

Tropical Stationery and More from Happy Cactus Designs

It’s Brannon from Happy Cactus Designs, and I’m back with some more products from my new collection. There’s no doubt that tropical motifs have been working their way into fashion, home, and the world of entertaining lately (see Nole’s post on Paper Party 2015 to get inspiring ideas for a tropical summer bash). My own recent work was inspired by my honeymoon to the island of Kauai (seriously one of the most beautiful places on Earth).

I think about that trip nearly every day and recollections of those beaches, seashells, and jungle hikes worked their way into my newest card designs. Now I’m just longing to escape to a warmer place again! And don’t forget, OSBP readers can get 25% off the new collection with code OSBP25 at checkout (valid through June 15).




I also couldn’t resist adding a new gold foil stamped card to my line as well as a few other designs in card categories I felt a growing need to design for. My line already has many new baby cards, but I loved creating more cards specifically for the mom-to-be. Wanting to go beyond just “thinking of you” or “get well” sentiments, I designed an uplifting card for anyone going through a tough time as well.



New Stationery from Happy Cactus Designs

Hi there! I’m Brannon from Happy Cactus Designs, and I’m so thrilled to be guest blogging on Oh So Beautiful Paper this week. I recently relocated my company from Austin, Texas, to Durango, Colorado, and managed to launch a new collection of paper goods around the same time that I’m eager to share with you. Read through this post for a special discount code in my online shop exclusive to OSBP readers!

My latest collection was heavily influenced by traveling I did over the past year: drives through the Texas Hill Country, hikes along the Hawaiian coastline, and treks through blooming alpine meadows in the summertime.


While a lot of my work is based on my own hand-drawings, I branched out with this new collection and experimented with gouache paint. It was fun to mix things up and see my designs come to life in a different way. Here’s a peek behind the scenes as I painted some new designs and the end result.

NSS 2015 Sneak Peek: Sugar Paper

If there’s one booth that I absolutely cannot under any circumstances miss at the National Stationery Show, it’s got to be Sugar Paper. And this year is no exception. Between a brand new collaboration with illustrator Jennifer Vallez of Sophie and Lili (!!!) and an amazing new line of brass desk accessories, I can’t wait to see everything in person in just a few days!

Quick Pick: The Good Twin Zodiac Pin + Post

I’m mildly (okay, majorly) obsessed with anything Zodiac-related so naturally I’m super excited about this new collection of Zodiac pins and postcards from The Good Twin! It’s the first release from Katie’s Pin + Post line, which features an enamel lapel pin on a 4×6″ flat printed postcard. So awesome!








All 12 signs in the Zodiac Pin + Post series are available at The Good Twin now – and will be available for wholesale in the Crow and Canary booth at the National Stationery Show next month!
