I also created a return address for the envelope.

I handed over the digital file to the very capable hands of letterpress printer, Travis Friedrich of ParkLifePress.com.

He printed in a soft gray on a luxurious 100% cotton paper at 6.25″ by 4.5″ wide.

This was the second project I’ve done with Travis and both were perfection! And his pricing is very reasonable.

I hope the Bowmans were as pleased with the result as the gift giver was!

Retro Christmas Card in Calligraphy


Since I know these have now been mailed, I can finally show you a custom retro Christmas card I designed for one of my sweetest clients.

Hand Lettering, calligraphy ,retro chritsmas card, script lettering, cursive lettering, fancy lettering, Christmas card in calligraphy, turquoise and red christmas card

The client ordered the cards and envelopes with liners online from www.cardsandpockets.com and had them shipped to my studio.  This allowed me to match the colors.  I have to say, the quality of the cards and envelopes was very good for the price.

Hand Lettering, calligraphy ,retro chritsmas card, script lettering, cursive lettering, fancy lettering, Christmas card in calligraphy, turquoise and red christmas cardThey wanted a retro look created with all hand lettering.  My favorite!

The lettering and other design elements were created by hand using a round brush and gouache paint.

It was scanned into the computer and placed in the card designed in Photoshop.

They were printed on white 6″ x 6″ folded cards.

Since they live up north, adding some snow was a must!

Next I’ll be creating cards for a Holiday Card exchange.  Need to get those out by Dec. 12.  Better get back to work!

Have a Tenacious Tuesday!

Dom Loves Mary calligraphy font on Bridal Luncheon invite


I was thrilled to have the chance to play with my new “Dom Loves Mary” calligraphy font on this Bridal Luncheon invitation for a client of DFW Events!

I loved adding all the flourishes to the upper and lower case letters in the brides name.

The invitation, in hot pink and orange, was presented to the guests in a personalized champagne glass.  ( For some reason the hot pink turned more purple in this post:)

The younger flower girls who were attending the luncheon received flower cookies, made by “It’s a Mary Cake“, with their invitation attached.

A flower cookie favor was also placed at their table setting.

Thanks to all who have been loving Dom Loves Maryt just as much as I do.

It’s been so exciting to see my new cursive font move up the Hot New Fonts list to # 16!

And I know Dom and Mary would be thrilled too:)

Dom Loves Mary calligraphy font is launched!


Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

Thanks to all for following the love story of my in-laws, Dominic and Mary Sementelli. I’m thrilled that my “Dom Loves Mary” calligraphy font, created in their memory, has finally been launched on Myfonts.com!

This week, I’ll be showing you some of the features of the font that I created specifically with weddings in mind.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

The first thing I want to highlight is the special package of 66 ADD ON words. Some of the projects these can be used for are: invitations, envelope addressing, programs, Bride and Groom signs, Thank you tags and note cards.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

Today, I’m going to show you the cool ways you can use it for envelope addressing.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

I included ” deliver to” and embellished titles ( Mr. and Mrs.( as seen above), Mr. Miss, Ms, Doctor, The Doctors ) to add a special touch to your envelopes.  In this sample, I used a combination of both the Dom Loves Mary SCRIPT CONTEXTUAL and TEXT fonts, as well as additional letter flourishes, that come in two sets of 72 each.

I had so much fun creating all the different options, I just couldn’t stop myself!

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

This sample was created using mostly the SCRIPT fonts ( A combination of STYLISTIC and STANDARD) with just the city and state in the TEXT font along with added flourishes on some of the letters in the names. One of my favorites is the abbreviation for number (No.). I think it  looks really cool when used for Apartment numbers:)

More Show and Tell tomorrow!

Fall Harvest Feast Invitation


I came across this beautiful fall harvest feast invitation at Oh So Beautiful Paper.

Designed by Gus & Ruby Letterpress , it makes me miss the fall from my Pennsylvania roots.

Liz, of  Paper Posy Designs, was the originator of this inspiration shoot.

The shoot took place in an apple orchard and Liz’s vision was all apple pie, cozy blankets, wood texture and a rich, autumnal palette.

1x1.trans Harvest Feast Invitations ,Fall invitation,Harvest Invitation,Belluccia font, calligraphy font, wedding font, fancy font, hand lettered font, cursive font, script font

Luxe pearl white cotton paper was the perfect canvas for my Belluccia calligraphy font paired with classic roman font and letterpress printed in a deep plummy ink.   The gorgeous multicolor fabric invitation backing was hand sewn using metallic gold thread.

Finally,the piece was wrapped in a double-layer belly band composed of creamy ecru cotton and natural oatmeal linen upon which was letterpress printed an inviting quote.

To top it all off, each envelope was lined with a metallic gold-stripe envelope liner.

Menus at each place setting again featured simple typesetting, lots of white space and the addition of a small wheat graphic ( from my Belluccia flourishes set) and were mounted to a creamy ecru cotton backing paper for a neutral tone on tone effect.

Wedding invitation suite with Belluccia on Oh So Beautiful Paper Blog


Belluccia cursive font, calligraphy font, wedding font, script font, hand lettered font

This wedding invitation suite with my cursive font, Belluccia, on the”Oh So Beautiful Paper” blog is yet another fabulous creation from designer Jami Dixon of Imaj Design.

This couple travels often to Germany.  Inspired by the pattern on a traditional German folk style dress she saw in a photo of the bride, Jami created a signature pattern that was used as a liner and  backer on the invitation and was incorporated into the wedding program.

A beautiful custom touch!

Belluccia cursive font, calligraphy font, wedding font, script font, hand lettered font

For the invitation suite, she used natural elemenst while also maintaining a degree of sophistication. A light brown paper with natural grooves and texture was chosen  for the main invitation and an off-white Italian paper with its own impressive texture was used for the accommodations and rsvp cards.

Belluccia cursive font, calligraphy font, wedding font, script font, hand lettered font

The entire suite was letterpress printed in their signature green color and tied-up with off-white double-scalloped lace.
Jami’s talent with paper and incredible design skills never cease to amaze me!
