NEW… Sky Siouki Greetings Cards

I’ve wanted to bring out some new card designs for a little while now but this May with a couple of events in sight I finally got it together and did it. There are four new designs – two in a similar style to my existing designs printed onto a white textured card and two in an exciting new style printed onto recycled card using white ink. The textured white card I use feels really sumptuous and is a lot nicer than the standard flat shiny surface most cards are printed onto, and the brown card has a lovely organic flecked texture to it because it is recycled which I think compliments the designs wonderfully. They are all digitally printed and come with brown recycled envelopes.

New Greeting Cards
The new cards include another ‘Happy Birthday’ design with an elegant deer on it, an adorable kitten suitable as a birthday card, thank you card, or anything you want it to be, ‘Jump For Joy’ featuring a little rabbit which would be ideal as a new baby card or a birthday or congratulations card too and a ‘Lovebirds’ design for engagements, weddings and Valentine’s. So now I’m proud to say I have cards suitable for nearly all occasions available from my shop!

If these go down well there may be even more to come. I’m very excited about being able to print onto 100% recycled card using white ink, enhancing the sustainable ethos of Sky Siouki so I hope to do a few more like this in the future. All of my cards are available to buy online and UK delivery is free!

TOP 5… Spring Inspired Prints

Springtime is now in full swing and so in light of all the lovely weather we’ve been having, this month’s Top 5 feature is on Spring inspired prints! All the prints I’ve picked are for interiors either on furnishing fabrics, wallpapers or interior accessories.

Spring Inspired Prints

  1. Lotus Pink Cushion by Bonnie & Neil £75 – Love the vibrancy of this pink botanical print by Australian brand Bonnie & Neil, contrasted nicely with a fun black trim.
  2. Bashful Bunnies Silk Cushion by Silken Favours £95 – I’m a huge Silken Favours fan and a major rabbit lover too so when this new silk bunny design came out it was bound to be an instant hit with me.

  3. PowderPuff Rose Fabric by Abigail Ryan £89 per metre – Abigail Ryan’s graphic florals and bold colours create a really strong Spring vibe full of warmth and joy.

  4. Harrys Garden Fabric by Louise Body £55 per metre – This design is a little more subdued but the sweet little garden birds inject some Springtime life into the delicately illustrated design.

  5. Harvest Hare Wallpaper in Corn by Mark Hearld £60 per roll – Mark Hearld’s linocut designs have a beautiful timeless quality. This wallpaper would make any room feel warm and happy even when it’s not Spring.

TOP 5… Alternative Easter Gifts

Springtime is fast approaching and Easter is only a week away! If you don’t fancy filling up on chocolate eggs this Easter though I’ve put together a lovely little selection of alternative Easter gifts to tickle your fancy. I’ve had a rather indulgent March myself having just been away in Portugal (blog post to follow soon!) and with Summer ahead I’m trying my hardest to stave off chocolate for now. If you’re feeling the same as me or perhaps have children who have gotten a little too old for eggs why not go for a rabbit gift this year instead?!

Rabbit Gifts

1. Bunny Rabbit Necklace by Love Hearts and Crosses  £29
This rabbit necklace is absolutely adorable and his pink bow gives an extra Easter touch. Perfect for a teenage daughter.
2. Rabbit & Cabbage iPhone Case by Thornback & Peel  £19.95
I’ve been a big fan of Thornback & Peel since they first emerged and now they’ve even starting doing phone covers!
3. Rabbit & Sun Print by Jen Rowland  £20
This screen-printed vintage rabbit illustration looks stunning set off against a golden sun.

Rabbit Gifts 2

  1. Baby Bunny Night Light from DotComGiftShop  £3.95
    This cheap and cheerful bunny night light is so cute. At only £3.95 I may just have to get one of these for myself.
  2. Rabbit Shaped Plush Cushion by Sky Siouki  £33
    Couldn’t resist including my own rabbit cushion in the mix. Printed onto soft cotton and backed with black velvet this one is nice and cuddly!
