Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
One of the most exciting parts of my design days is when I have the chance to collaborate with other vendors. Recently I created items for 2 events. Randy from Wicked Willow noticed my stationery pieces and the I DO Brunch last month and contacted me to create several items for a 18th Annual Great Chefs’ Dinner in Baltimore. Her short description of the tablescape was all I needed to roll with the design. I chose my peacock feather illustration with hand-painted strokes of copper throughout. Shimmering aqua cardstock was a unexpected but quite savvy choice. Randy created magic with crystal, feathers, orchids, bronze birdcages and shades of aqua. I can imagine a stunning ocean interpretation of this design – white coral anyone?
Eventology o9 was a fabulous event (at the Omni Hotel in Indianapolis) for industry professionals orchestrated by Katasha of K Sherrie and Company. I created custom thank you notes for each attendee featuring a personalized wrap, gray satin pull and gunmetal cardstock pocket presentation. My signature petal bloom was hand-painted with touches of shimmering deep lilac and a tiny rhinestone embellishment. Take a look at this amazing palette of orange, fuchsia and black – wow!
Looks like everyone had a blast – love this b&w shot!Images courtesy of JK Photographers
