Gingiber Greeting Cards

Gingiber Greeting Cards

Gingiber’s new cards are so sweet! Stacie from Gingiber was inspired by her Midwestern roots, heirloom quilt patterns, and barnyard animals to create the collection, and the result is a tangle of colorful barnyard cuteness. The new line, which makes its debut at the National Stationery Show, is filled with quirky illustrations, hand lettering, pattern, and fantastic color palettes and will make a most excellent addition to the art prints and home goods in the Gingiber shop.

The cards will be available online in June and, if you’ll be attending the National Stationery Show this year, be sure to check out the Gingiber booth in the new #fresh section, a juried group of stationers specializing in cool, cutting-edge designs.

I am all about these beautiful black and white paper goodies from bastisRIKE. Their shop is filled with chic, modern gift tags, postcards, and seriously cool birch bark envelopes, plus rubber stamps and stamp sets that would make great building blocks for a number of different paper craft projects.

Digital die cutting machines have revolutionized the way in which many paper crafters create and, in my first post as a Craftsy contributor, I’m exploring the ins and outs of these versatile tools. So, if you’d like to know more about what a digital die cutter can bring to your craft table, head on over and check out Digital Die Cutting 101.
