Bunni Goods Storybook Notecards … And A Disturbing Discovery

Bunni Goods Storybook Notecards

If you’re a sucker for vintage illustrations, bunni goods definitely has something for you. Their storybook notecards are fashioned from images featured in gently used children’s books and feature everything from bunnies and bears to snowmen running from something…perhaps a blowtorch? Kitschy-licious!

As I was browsing the bunni goods site, I couldn’t help but notice something a little unsettling about their Curious Dream card…

That’s totally Fergie! And, yes, I’m completely ashamed that I noticed this.

Fergie

Fergilicious?

Gagatree 3-D Pop Up Cards

Gagatree Pop Up Card

Pop up cards are one of those things that still elicits a childlike response within me. So, naturally, I was filled with wonder and delight when I saw these beautiful 3-D pop up cards from Singapore based design group Gagatree’s Winter Garden collection.

The pop ups are not only appealing in form, but they also feature colorful Asian-inspired graphic elements, such as bunnies, cats, and butterflies. In addition to making a wonderful greeting card (thankfully, each card comes with instructions for spatially challenged people such as myself), the pop ups would also be the perfect gift wrap embellishment, gift ornament, or decoration.

Available for purchase in the US from Shopmodi.

Brief Intermission

I’m flying home to the ‘burgh for my sister’s wedding this weekend and will be gone for a week or so. While I’m gone, I do have several posts scheduled, so no worries about feeding the paper cravings. However, I will not be checking my email for the next week. See you back here on June 4!

In the meantime, check out more reports from the National Stationery Show at design*sponge and also freshly{blended}.

Psst…Nicole from freshly{blended} recently launched freshlyblendedpress.com and has made her beautiful jotters and journals available for sale. A must see!

Design*Sponge’s 2007 Stationery Show Coverage

Design Sponge Stationery Show 2007

Design*Sponge has posted the first in her series of reports on the 2007 National Stationery Show, and I’m agiggle at the wonderful offerings on display. Check out the debut of the Nantaka Joy line…absolutely stunning use of metallics and blind embossing. I’m also loving the woodgrain coasters from Rock Scissor Paper, the button series (excerpt pictured above) and wood veneer cards from Night Owl Paper Goods — absolutely inspiring!

The next installment of what I’m sure will be fabulous creations will be posted on Thursday at Design*Sponge, so be on the lookout. I know, like you’re not already, right?
