Here’s a little roundup of some of the lovely cards that I’ve spotted so far and, if you’re a fan of pretty lettering and typography, then I think that you’ll find something to love in this bunch:

I am completely enamored with these awesomely adorable new personalized rubber stamps from The Small Object. These cuties, each of which features an original drawing, are customized with your name and choice of text, and you can use them to personalize everything from homemade baked goods to books to handmade crafts and gifts. And speaking of gifts, the sweet stamps would make great gifts for moms, teachers, bookworms, and home cooks.

I have been inspired by so much of the incredible, dimensional paper art that I’ve seen over the past few months, and N O V U K, a limited edition collection by José Santamarina, blew me away. I love the clean, geometric look of each box and pop-up in the collection, and the mix of fine cardboard and translucent, vibrantly colored acetate gives the pieces wonderful contrast and textural interest.
Santamarina, a renowned Spanish graphic designer with a career that spans decades, hand crafts each piece in the series as a unique model. Each series consists of 25 limited edition copies, numbered and signed by the artist.
N O V U K is an open collection, and new pieces will be added regularly. I know that I’ll be checking back to see what’s new.
