A little update to my Etsy shop! These two new cards are very different styles, but are both great new additions to my shop and I’m happy to finally be sharing them.
This new thank you card design is available in sets of five. Each card is screen printed by hand, in black and metallic gold inks. They are matched to a metallic gold envelope that gives the notecards a little bit of extra fanciness.
I can’t help but giggle a little bit every time I see these silly little faces. This design is available as a single card. Each notecard is screen printed by hand, in metallic gold, hot pink and green inks. A white envelope is included.
There are so many different creative outlets that I enjoy, some are work-related and others personal pursuits. I am always looking for new ways to combine ideas to make something new or completely custom to fit a need. Although I’ve always had custom designed branding for my business, I’ve wanted to incorporate a handmade touch as well. I finally decided to design myself some new thank you cards, completely for my business. They combine illustration, design and screen printing to make something special to send to my clients. I’m excited to be sending these out!

Two new cards in my Etsy shop! These are a bit of a departure from my normal graphic design, but I really like hand drawn motifs and incorporated some into my work. I first used this design to make my Christmas cards last year and received such great feedback, that I wanted to make them into something everything could enjoy.
They are currently available in two different colors combinations. One is brighter, with turquoise and yellow ink. The other is a bit more understated, but features metallic silver ink with sage. Each card is screen printed by hand in my home studio.
A friend of mine wanted a custom stationery set and my mind immediately went to the idea of letterpress printing. It’s a method I really enjoy, but use only on larger print projects. I also got to share the process with her and her daughter, inviting them over to pull a few prints on my vintage Adana press. The process went smoothly and we ended up with a beautiful set of paper goods for her.
Now for the printing details. All items were hand-pulled on a vintage Adana Press. This set was letterpress printed in two custom PMS inks (dark green and dark gray) onto Ecru Crane’s Lettra paper and a Kraft Colorplan Envelope (lined with French Pop-Tone paper).
I’m always, always, always thinking of new items I can expand my screen printing onto, thinking about all the little touches that make a home more personal and homey. After a bunch of trial runs, I have added the first coasters and throw pillows to my shop. More color and design options are planned to follow later this year.
The set of coasters are screen printed with bright turquoise ink on cork and backed with wool felt, to keep your table surfaces happy. The throw pillow is screen printed with metallic gold ink on a linen blend fabric, then sewn up and stuffed with a pillow insert. Now available in the Etsy shop.
When considering where to expand my greeting card line, my mind always goes to new birthday cards. There are always birthdays happening and every person is unique, so I have fun designing new ideas to celebrate. Recently, four new birthday cards found their way into my shop, just in time for the holiday craft fairs. Find one perfect for your next birthday boy or girl!
To expand my greeting card offerings, I wanted to use some fun messaging that are not tied to a single holiday. It’s always a good time to tell someone that they are special to you and babies are born year round – so I had some ideas to start out designing. All cards are screen printed by hand in my home studio, each with two ink colors. Now available in my shop!
Tell them what you really think! Treat a lovely lady in your life to one of these cute new little zipper pouches, now available in my Etsy shop. Each zipper pouch is screen printed by hand in one color of ink, then sewn up. Exterior fabric is a linen blend, while the interior is lined with a patterned cotton print. Makes a great gift!
