Brooklyn Bridge gold foil art prints.

I have a new limited edition art print series over at Minted! Here's the first of three: Brooklyn Bridge. Made just for those who "heart NYC" and for folks whose walls are not complete without a bit of bling. Minted has a great variety of frames to match your decor style, but of course you can purchase it sans frame too.

New: Storybook letterpress wedding invitation.

Holiday fever, part I.

It's a stormy Monday here in Houston and I've finished work early, so I thought I'd share some of my recent entries for Minted's 2012 Holiday Card challenge. In the name of brevity, I will break this up into a couple posts (more to come). Winners and Editor's Picks will be announced later this summer, so fingers crossed for a nice surprise come September!

Valentine's Day cards.

Valentine's Day is creeping up, and I've got you covered! Here are two new Jody Wody additions to Minted's line of adorable Classroom Valentines. These teeny-tiny cards were designed to incorporate a touch of DIY – you can affix a matching bow to Prize Ribbon via two strategically placed punch holes, and I'm a Sucker includes the perfect spot to attach a yummy lollipop.

Remember, you don't have to be a kid to hand these out. Think of how many new friends you'll make by handing out Sucker cards at the grocery store.

Holiday card inspiration: The Joy of Stripes

My next card, "The Joy of Stripes" was designed to offset a full-bleed photo with a simple message. I was motivated to create a classic, editorial look (think: Vogue, Harper's Bazaar) with a twist. Crisp, offset stripes and a pop of red add depth and warmth, while retaining a chic-yet-slightly-quirky aesthetic.
