National Stationery Show 2011 – Part 10

It’s time for another installment of our National Stationery Show coverage!  First up for today, Kathryn from Blackbird Letterpress, with more of her beautiful die cut greeting cards – including a new bee design for this year and a “missing u” note card that would be perfect for anyone with a far-away loved one.

Allison from Igloo Letterpress is always coming up with new and creative applications for her designs – from pull out letterpress greeting cards to fun die cut cards.   This year Allison debuted a set of notebooks inspired by brownstone architecture – line up each design for your own little neighborhood!

So many pretty things over at the Wiley Valentine booth!  From new greeting card designs to wedding invitation albums and baby stationery, these ladies have been keeping busy!

Tina from Joie Studio made her Stationery Show debut this year, with a booth full of letterpress greeting cards, wedding invitations, and pinwheel party accessories.  I’m loving the fruit note cards below – so cute!

Brad from Maginating always has the best collection of greeting cards – the bacon and egg card below is still one of my all-time favorites, but I’m loving the new perfect match and cheer up cards, too.


The ladies from Sugarcube Press had an adorable and ruffle-filled booth with tons of pretty stationery – calendars, greeting cards, coasters, bookplates, oh my!

Color made a return to the Stationery Show in a big way this year and was very much in effect at the Smudge Ink booth, with bold patterned gift wrap and calendars, brightly colored note cards, and imprintable party invitations.

Speaking of color – the ladies of Two Trick Pony are known for their colorful screen printed note cards, wedding invitations, and calendars.  I love the deep, saturated color of screen printing!

Of course, no trip to the Stationery Show would be complete without a trip to the Old Tom Foolery booth.  Lauren and Joel are guaranteed to put a smile on your face with these hilarious cards.
