Paper Artwork – Christopher David Ryan

I’ve been on a bit of an artwork kick lately; I’ve found that changing out the artwork in a few rooms can be such a great way to freshen the vibe of an entire house or apartment.  Christopher David Ryan is a longtime favorite artist and I was thrilled when he recently reopened his shop with a ton of fabulous prints both old and new and with several size options.  Here are a few of my favorites!

Longtime readers already know that I’m a big fan of anything inspired by constellations and astronomy, so naturally I’m loving the new astronomy print series from Small Talk Studio.  The first installments include prints inspired by the sun and the moon – I can’t wait to see more!

Molly Jacques Calligraphy Business Cards + Artwork

I love the classic beauty and elegance of these business cards from calligrapher and illustrator Molly Jacques.  Molly frequently works with the ladies of Sugar Paper (which is where I first became acquainted with Molly’s work) and her calligraphy and illustration portfolio is simply stunning.  The ladies of Sugar Paper letterpress printed Molly’s double-sided design in their signature pool ink.  Gorgeous!

Molly has a beautiful shop with calligraphy address stamps and some truly beautiful prints – I just couldn’t resist sharing these two prints in particular:

Thanks Molly!  You can see more of Molly’s illustration and calligraphy work right here!

Gray + Yellow Folk Art Baby Shower Invitations

I recently stumbled across these adorable letterpress baby shower invitations from Moglea and couldn’t resist sharing them here on OSBP.  Meg from Moglea created and letterpress printed the two-color design, pairing the invitations with gray envelopes and patterned envelope liners.  I love the folk art vibe of the animal and floral illustrations, not to mention the yellow and gray color palette (still one of my favorites).



So cute!  You can check out more from Moglea right here!

Stephanie + Trey’s Tropical Passport Save the Dates

I’ve been dreaming of a tropical beach vacation for months, and these save the dates from Melissa and Amy of Atheneum Creative for a wedding in the Bahamas are only making me even more anxious to get myself to a warm and sunny beach asap.  Melissa and Amy were inspired by the destination wedding to create a passport-style save the date with a unique linen cover letterpress printed by the ladies of Sideshow Press.  So pretty!

From Melissa + Amy: Stephanie and Trey are getting married in the Bahamas and wanted to play to the travel theme as much as possible… so what better way than to start with a passport save the date! 

We are seen so many passport designs and really wanted to give Stephanie and Trey something a little more unique.  We letterpress printed on linen for the cover and digitally printed the inside text on a soft textured paper.  We incorporated a map of the Bahamas along with travel and weekend information.

Thanks Melissa + Amy!

Design: Atheneum Creative
