Inspiration corner – Pop In Greetings

It is always good to be prepared for any occasion. Pop-in-greetings are the perfect “lifesaver” stationery for those moments when you need a thank you note, congrats on a new arrival, invite somebody or just sent an anniversary card.

We spotted some of TheInkNest graphics used in their set of Forever Young cards for children, people about to have children, or friends who act like children ;)

Every year there is some spin on the Woodland theme. The trend for 2015/16 goes in direction mystic forest with romantic medieval influences. The backgrounds are dark with bright vegetation, detailed leaves and fairytale book creatures. Detailed owl drawings and foliage inspired by classic paintings. A beautiful trend that can be applied to stationery and home decor.

Artist feature – Erica Hite

I am really happy to introduce our new artist Erica Hite at the Ink Nest.

First, I noticed Erica in one of my Design Garden Classes. She is incredibly talented and I especially love to follow her process from paper to digital. Her thoughtful sketches evolve into harmony of color and shapes that constitute her finished patterns. She shared on her website review about the class and sketches for her latest set. These patterns have been featured in Upper Case Magazine  – the Surface Design Issue.

Erica is inspired by handmade things, vintage and retro character art and graphic design. Images bellow are part of her sketchbook for her latest set in the shop Folk Tribal.

Trends 2014 – Jungle

1. Jungle Wreath – Sarah  2. Pillow  3. Bathing Suit  4. Invitation

The Jungle Trend mixes luscious palm leaves, giant exotic flowers, tigers, lions and monkeys – oh my! Pair these designs with beautiful vibrant greens, dark brown, vermilion and you’ve got yourself a jungle print.

You will see this trend being used on everything from clothing, wall paper, home goods to invitations. It can be dressed up to be sophisticated or toned down to add a bit of whimsy. This trend really is for the wild at heart.
