Pup & Pony Letterpress Cards

I’m absolutely taken with the retro inspired designs on these letterpress greeting cards by Pup & Pony Press. So adorable! Wendy Emery, the founder and graphic designer / illustrator behind Pup & Pony, also creates fantastic linocut cards and even a few onesies featuring her illustrations. Check out the entire collection at the Pup & Pony Press Etsy shop, and find out more about the shop and Wendy here.

Crystal Kluge Rubber Stamps

Crystal Kluge Rubber Stamps

A couple of weeks ago, I made one of my semi-regular trips to Paper Source, and while I was browsing the rubber stamp section I noticed several stamps featuring lettering that looked very familiar. I thought to myself, “hey, this looks like Crystal Kluge’s lettering work,” as I reached to pick up a stamp to see who produced them. Well, my suspicions were confirmed because Crystal Kluge does, indeed have a rubber stamp collection at Paper Source! How did I not know this before now? The stamps would be perfect for all types of invitations (wedding,party) and cards — use them with metallic inks or heat emboss them for a wonderful effect.

The Paper Source website carries several of the stamp designs (scroll down a little to see them), but my local Paper Source had a much wider selection, so if you live near a physical PS location, then I’d recommend that you pay a visit. What am I thinking? Like I need to tell you to go visit a Paper Source! Have a great weekend, everyone, and don’t forget that the last day to submit your Paper Crave reader survey and enter to win one of two copies of Home, Paper, Scissors is Monday!

Hila Rawet Karni Paper Jewelry

Hila Rawet Karni

Ann Martin recently featured the absolutely stunning work of jewelry designer Hila Rawet Karni, and I’m in awe. Hila’s Kipul collection features pieces created using folded sheets of paper, and the result is a feast for the eyes. Sophisticated, elegant, and intricate are just a few adjectives that come to mind when I see this collection. It inspires me to broaden my view of what paper can do!
