Handmade custom invitations & stationery

Our bright fruit and floral pattern has appeared on many different stationery pieces but it truly shines here with colorful, thick brushstrokes. A simple patterned envelope liner of greens compliments the bright corals, pink, and fuchsias of the main invitation while a hand painted gold frame sets off elegant script text. Aside from the floral patterns, this set is accented by many different textures… thick hand torn edges on the invite and tag, paint that you can feel against heavy cotton paper, and  raw silk ribbon. So much to experience!

We’re so happy to again feature Laura Hooper Calligraphy this morning! The quote is from Confucius, and it seems appropriate for those days when you just can’t seem to get anything done. We’ve all had them! Just relax, and remember that even a tiny step will still help get you where you want to go.

Tropical orchids abound in this colorful Hawaii wedding invitations. Strong fuchsia and white blooms create a dramatic frame for a cut-away view of a lush tropical island. Heavy white and gold hand painting is a fun contrast to the soft flowing watercolor oceanscape. With so much artwork, not much else is needed to get everyone excited for the event!

It’s always good to challenge ourselves, even though it can be the hardest thing in the world to try something new, knowing that it could fail. With Arney Walker’s Painterly Prose calligraphy, we are reminded that taking the plunge can be the most rewarding way to learn.

A breathe of fresh air for a Friday morning, brought to you by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Elizabeth Hardin of HardInk Calligraphy. It’s giving us a little spring fever while there’s still some snow on the ground here in Pennsylvania.
