Forage Friday GIVEAWAY

In honor of all my wonderful non existent readers out there and specifically my mom who provided the first taste of gourmet food at home and piqued my interest in cooking at the wee age of 3, I'm hosting my first giveaway *gasp.*

If you haven't already heard of the amazing blogger Bakerella (not my mom, but really awesome too) you are missing out. She's the woman behind the famous cupcake pops that are all the rage right now. In honor of Bakerella and all bakers out there, I've put my letterpress to work, printing recipe cards featuring some lovely cupcake pops. To see the full card click HERE

If you want to enter to win a set of 20, 2 color letterpressed recipe cards please leave a comment below as to why you LOVE letterpress (or if you don't know what letterpress is, then why you really need these recipe cards). A random drawing will be made on September 12th and a winner will be notified.  Check back as Forage Friday giveaways will become a regular staple around here!

Bakerella
Recipe cards printed on Lettra 300GSM/110# felt paper with soy based inks. Measures roughly 4x6" and will be packed in a ClearBox for safe cooking and recipe taking.

Hey Ade! I'll tell you why I want this CUTE LOVELIES! Because...

a. They're so delicious looking I could eat them.

b. I hate the old flowers, bears, sick lookin' old lady recipe cards that fill my recipe box at the moment. Bleh!

c. They're made especially by you!

d. Because you know you want them to go to someone who'd appreciate them and you know I would VERY MUCH appreciate some Ade love in my cuboard.

e. Because you secretly love me the best! :)

f. I'm the first one to comment and to tell you why I want these.

Hope you're doing good! I love looking at all of your fun creatings. You inspire me to become better at putting my brain to work. How is the hubby? The kids? The house? The lodge? Everything?

Kevin and Jamie said...

So A, I really need these recipe cards because I could really use the update in my collection. That and they are so classy and great! You are so talented and creative, I love it. I could get in to this letter press stuff. Love to you and babies.

emily said...

They're adorable. And I'm in the "don't know what letterpress is" category, but I'm hearing the word a lot lately, and loving the things that are "letterpressed", so...pick me!

Bakerella said...

Adrienne - I wish you could have seen my face when I opened the boxes you sent. I was smiling all day. These cards are so pretty, I don't even want to use them. I just want to stare at them in their perfection.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Bakerella

Also, I posted them on my site, so take a look.

Pegg S said...

I haven't tried making those Bakerella pops, but have all the ingredients ready to go!! I'm drawn to letterpress because typically the designs are elegant and modern. And I love the texture that is created. I love touching them!

Tori said...

I love letterpress because they make such an impression compared to boring laser printed ones. These are gorgeous and would really help me get motivated to finally write down all of my Dad's recipes. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jessica said...

WOW is all I can say! These recipe cards are beautiful! I currently have recipes scratched on any piece of paper I can find. Copies printed from the computer when I find one I love. I actually "collect" recipes. Just waiting for the opportunity to use them. Your beautiful cards would be so lovely in my recipe file! I would love and desperatly need them! Thank You!

Rebecca said...

these are amazing. As someone who has worked in the stationary business, I've seen a lot of letterpress cards....none as cute as these. I love the double color, and mostly with letterpress i love the paper quality, the way it feels in ur hand.
I absolutely love these recipe cards...how cute and fun!
great design!

shay said...

Well I can think of reasons for both: I love letterpress because it's slick - it's very clean aesthetically and emphasizes simplicity. Yum! But I also really would love to have these cards because I'm a big fan of letterpress and Bakerella (I read her blog religiously) *and* I'm an avid baker who collects her recipes in a snazzy, retro recipe box that would reach its peek of perfection with these fantastic cards! Oh, the match would be so perfect! And since I cannot beg you to pick me (because it's a random draw), I will instead beg chance that I will be picked. Please? Please?

Julie said...

I love, love, love cupcakes! Notecards would be an awesome addition to my collection! :-)jmcormond@earthlink.net

Megan said...

I love these - they are so hip and up to date - just like us bloggers!!

Kari said...

I LOVE making cake pops! But I don't love so much trying to explain how to make them; these notecards would remedy that problem, as I could gift cupcake pops with their own recipe card!


Oh, and I'm addicted to letterpress because it's so unique. Such an old craft, but how can you help but NOT love the tactile feeling of the card and paper? Maybe it's because you letter-pressers use the most awesome papers, and they look & feel just great, AND your design on them is awesome - so how could anyone resist??? Hehehe.

Lisa! said...

I've always loved letterpress. It's very tactile and has a depth that other processes just don't provide.

Rebecca said...

I adore letterpress! It's an old, traditional technique that has always remained elegant and lovely. I hope I win the recipe cards cause they're just so cute (and because I adore letterpress items)!

Katherine said...

Letterpress is the most fab process! So elegant and so visually and tactiley (is that a verb?) pleasing! I have my fingers crossed you pick me (makes typing difficult! LOL!) and I will have the opportunity to update my card collection! Thanks for the chance!!
-Katherine M.

Milwaukee Cupcake Queen said...

I LOVE the vintage feel of letterpress on the thick and rich stock. The only thing that would make them more incredible would be to have them in my collection!

Amy Ragland said...

Letterpress is so elegant. I like letterpress so much better than any of the other options out there. These recipe cards would be awesome for my recipe box. I've been trying to add some new ones to my collection!

Bree said...

These will make even my boring old recipes look elegant!

Jessica said...

You've combined two awesome crafts and made them absolutely irresistible! And to me there's just nothin' like personalized items.

I'd have to have these on display in my kitchen.

mightymomelissa said...

I've always loved the look of letterpress. So rich!

Kristen said...

i LOVE the recipe cards! i read BAKERELLA all of the time and saw the darling cards that you sent to her. i just had to come and see what else you have...
i would love the chance to win the "giveaway"...i could use some sort of organization for that messy, random box of recipes that i have. your cards are the PERFECT solution.
happy day!

Stella said...

I can't tell you how many people ask me for this one recipe I make...orzo salad...and I would love to have these FABULOUS cards to share it with them!!

GORGEOUS!!

landa said...

See? I need these because my non cooking/baking sisters are always asking me for my recipes and I end up writing them in ugly little index cards. Plus these are cute as a button! NEED them LOL!

Cat said...

oooh-these are so nice! i love letterpress for it's simple look that can be cute or elegant. like these wonderful cards! i've been dying to try some of bakerella's cupcake pops - if i won, i'd just HAVE to finally make some :)

kevin and angela said...

I thoroughly enjoy browsing your site and seeing how you can make something so simple and elegant and classy out of silly little icons and letters... and what a luxury it would be to write out my most delicious recipes on the cute little cupcake cards! Pick me! Blessings to you, Angela

Joni said...

I love, love, love letterpress and your recipe cards! Very classy and elegant. Please pick me! ;-)

Suzanne said...

I love these recipe cards! I usually just print recipes out on the computer, but would love to write them out and give them away and have them actually look nice!

I love letterpress now because my sister is going to college for Printmaking and works at a letterpress studio. I had no idea how beautiful letterpress was until now!

April said...

Your cards are so great. I haven't seen letterpress before and now I must know more.
What a fun way to combine inspiration of the awesome Bakerella with the passion of papercrafting.
I would love a set of these to go with my holiday baking gifts.

CB said...

I found your blog via Bakerella's and omg I think your letterpress cards are freaking adorable! Pick me! I'd love to win!

Those cards are gorgeous! Love them!

SpottedCow said...

Any card with a cupcake on them is all right in my book. But these cards are simply outstanding!

stephanie said...

I love these! I need them because I am the dessert lady in my family...I am always bringing new goodies to the get-togethers and it would be great to have these sweet little cards to put next to my desserts for them to copy! :)

Amanda said...

I have been looking for some cute recipe cards for like 3 months!!! THESE ARE FABULOUS!!

Robyn said...

What a great way to add class to my recipe box! Love them!

2boys+mom said...

they are so adorable! I would love to have a personal set of recipe cards!

Kami said...

I need recipe cards because my recipes are so disorganized!! I love letterpress...

Ashley said...

Because they are so neat looking! Very cute design! Classic but fun too! Thanks for the chance to win. I tried making the pops a couple of weeks ago. They didn't turn out exactly right:) Bakerella sure does an awesome job.

Ale said...

Because my recipes are such a mess... and they would look soooo pretty on this recipe cards... :D

KRISTIE said...

becuase step one in baking is having really cute recipe cards, and these are really cute!

AmandaMichelleSmith said...

These recipe cards are so cute! Which means whatever bake good recipe is written on them will be just as cute!! :]

MrsMarch said...

Adrienne, for the last several months I've been cupcake lurking and found Bakerella's blog and have tried the cupcakes pops and cake balls for several different occasions, actually have some in the works as we speak. Hadn't thought about recipe cards until I saw them posted. I made some in pink for someone at work as a baby shower gift and this would have been a great addition to the package.

Those cards are crisp and as sweet as the pops are!

They are absolutely beautiful.

Letter press cards are adorable and who doesn't love a cupcake on a stick.

We're doing a like to your contest from our blog.

amber said...

i specifically love my letterpress wedding invitations :) they were the first time many of my guests had seen it, and I was thrilled to be able to share the love.

so, so much more elegant than "raised printing" and less stuffy than engraving.

Andrew's Mom said...

I'm not sure what Letterpress is - but those cards are adorable! I think I need to find out--I love recipe cards - even if I have the recipe in a cookbook - I have to write it out and put it on a card if I intend to use it again and again!

Zane and Lexi said...

So I'm stalking one of my favorite blogs, Bakerella when I see these darling recipe cards made by the one and only, Adrienne!! These are darling and you definitely have a fine talent and collection. How fun to see what you are up to these days!
Alexis P. (from the neighborhood)

The White Family said...

Ok, I fall into the category of not knowing what Letterpress is, but who doesn't love adorable cards like those?

Laura said...

How adorable! Perfect for my newly established kitchen...

Lalaroo said...

I love these cards, and I love letterpress! I love the 3D quality it gives to paper - it makes it so much more fun to write on, hold in my hands, and pass on to friends!

Marilyn said...

Simple and elegant = simply elegant...that's why I like them.

Carlee Hoopes said...

These are so cute! I would love to update my dessert recipes onto these cute cards!

Tracey I. said...

Can't say that I know what letterpress is...but I need these adorable cards because my cute little girl calls these "party cakes on a stick"!

:: miss m :: said...

I really need them to put my third-generation cookie recipes on them. I've inherited the holiday cookie baking from my mom who inherited it from her mom. These would be perfect. :)

Jodi said...

ooh ooh ooh - how cute these are! I would love to have these to replace all the sad pieces of paper containing way too many of my favorite recipes! Love it - can't wait to explore your site more!

Anonymous said...

I like that they are so classy: very cute, but simply sophisticated.

sharon said...

Well, I for one would like to have these recipe cards to give recipes to my friends. How much more cool than just an old piece of paper

NillaWafer said...

I went to a birthday party last night and I supplied the "cake". The "cake" was really Bakerella's cupcake pops. Of course they were a huge hit and it would be wonderful to use a set of these fantastic recipe cards so I can share the recipe with all those who asked for it.

Jacki said...

I'd love to have cupcake recipe cards to share with friends. We have a bed and breakfast and I'm always jotting down a new recipe. Love your site!
Thanks

Isa said...

I made Bakerella's cupcake bites some weeks ago :D
The recipe cards are so lovely! I'm in for winning a couple for my own =D
I LOVE letterpress because... I love the texture of them, I love that they are so unique and I love them because they are so adorable!
Thanks for the chance!

suzy said...

I love them because the are beautiful! You do great work!!!

Cheryl said...

Those are so freaking cute!!!

wuxiapiank said...

I love letterpress because of the style and texture.

I need the recipe cards because I've never had any! Round here recipes are written on scrap pieces of paper and shoved between the pages of a random cookbook, so that they all fall out when next time you open it.

Linnea said...

Adorable! I'm always in need of recipe cards, and I absolutely adore Bakerella's blog and her cupcake pops.

Nicole said...

These are so stinkin' cute! I *heart* letterpress because they are always designs that are rich with lovely texture! :) PLUS how can you not love the cupckae pops! Super cute!

Strawberry said...

i am always giving away the many things i bake as gifts, but never have a cute label to put on the packaging! these letterpressed recipe cards would be a perfect way to leave a short note on any baked gift.

Holly said...

As a fellow graphic designer, I love letter press for the feel of the paper, the smell of the ink and the pure joy of a beautifully designed piece.

I love your work and can't wait to see more!

Sarah said...

My kitchen is currently a mixture of cook books, magazines and internet print outs that are flying around in an unsightly mess. So to combat that I have recently purchased a recipe card box and some cards... but they just aren't cute, and Ive searched ETSY but everything I have found is kind of daggy, but THESE are SO cute. good work!!

Annie Traynor said...

I love letterpress because it makes me remember just how beautiful custom printing is and I am a sucker for fine-quality paper.

Jeri said...

The reason I would love to have these beautiful little recipe cards is because I lost my Mom to cancer on June 18th. One of the things that I have from her is her collection of recipes, many of which were clipped from magazines and newspapers. I'd love to share a few of these recipes with my sister, my daughter and my niece. Having a special set of recipe cards for my Mom's recipes would be such a wonderful way to pass these treasures along to my family.

Rachelle said...

These are adorable! I could sure use some right about now, as my printer is broken and I'm having to hand copy recipes from online to my little spiral. So old school! lol I could use these cute things instead!

cmw said...

These cards are adorable...I love, love, love all things cupcake! And these would simply be the most beautiful cards ever!

Kelli said...

I love these cards because they are so cute they rival the cuteness of the actual cupcake pops!

kelgirl105 at yahoo dot com

Hannah said...

These recipe card are so cute! I love the fact that they are so different from all the others out there. I love that they are letterpressed to that is such a traditional style and these are just great, I might moving soon and would really love to be able to use these to write down and organize my recipe box that I would be taking from my mother!

e said...

I love your letterpress stuuf - looks like stationery should look! Beautiful!

Stephanie said...

Hello! I came round your blog by way of Bakerella and may have emitted a little gasp of delight upon spying your letterpress lovelies.

I'm in love with letterpress because of its simple beauty and the way it marries the tactile with the visual. I can't help but run my fingers over the intricate designs and sigh happily whenever I'm lucky enough to come across letterpress!

I'm a bakeaholic and would be truly honored to win such a beautiful giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity. Hope you're having a lovely day.

kelli said...

mmm, letterpress mixed with cupcakes, does life get any better? I neeeed the letterpress cards so that I can fondle them regularly and live vicariously through those with an actual letterpress. My next house will have a basement with room for a letterpress. Of course the house and letterpress are contingent on my winning the lottery....

Lisa said...

Letterpress just makes my fingers happy. I love feeling it, oh my gosh!

And these are just amazing cards, I hope I get to feel them soon.

Thanks for the offering!

The Goodrich's said...

My recipes are written on plain white 3x5 cards...so I could really use these!!!

Anonymous said...

Well, I have to say that I never had any experience with letterprss, but I do have to say that I think it looks wonderful. It looks like it is raised of the paper. I really do need a better system with recipes, my system is not working... wait a sec I don't have a system, its just paper thrown in a cookbook. LOL
OOO And I love Bakerella and her cupcake pops too!

Anna said...

Letter press cards just make anything printed on them look and feel just that much more special and I would love to get a set of these cards. Actually, I'd even love to buy a set if you're willing to sell them.

JSchwa said...

I ordered about 300 letterpress coasters for my bf's 40th. Lots of fun. Letterpress is just magnificent.

Kim and Cam said...

I would just LOVE to have something different from everyone else, rather then using those boring grocery store bought ones!! Sharing recipes are one of my favorite things to do!! I would put them to great use and be so thrilled to win!!

Sharnel @ The Cupcake Company said...

I just adore the look and feel of letterpress. It's so tactile. I heart letterpress. And I heart Bakerella too! She's so original.

gala1208 said...

I love letterpress. It is classic, vintage, current, and just lovely overall!

morgana said...

You design really amazed me. I love Bakerella's cupcake pops since the first time a saw them, I even made a homage to her on my blog, despite I'm not an english spoken person (you can see it here: http://blogolosas.com/index.php?op=ViewArticle&articleId=237&blogId=2 and here: http://blogolosas.com/index.php?op=ViewArticle&articleId=238&blogId=2). I've just seen your cards in Bakerella's blog and they look so elegant, modern, cute... what else can I say? Well, maybe just CONGRATULATIONS. Letter press look more... "solid"? maybe is because I have the feeling that they may last forever ;-)

Mrs. Cupcake said...

Your art is beautiful. I would be happy to have these lovely cards in my home.

ztwain said...

Your Letter press cards would do justice to my many cake pop recipes. I made the cake pops for a mandatory meeting held at work and to of had the cards with my recipe one would have been over the top! Love the cards and the site. Keep on keeping on !!

Nikki said...

I would love the cards as I have also made the cupcake pops from Bakerella's blog. These cards look delicious too!

craftADD said...

You caught the spirit of Bakerella completely. I knew who these represented the moment I saw them. Very fun.

Jade said...

I'm a huge stationary addict...anything cute, I just GOTTA have. This addiction also extends to cake in any form.

This means that according to my addiction, these wonderful recipe cards are an oh-em-gee MUST have!

But, if I don't win, I do believe that you've got a winning product here. ;)

Jennifer said...

I love these recipe cards! Mine are just plain old white index cards in this lovely recipe holder I got and these cards would be perfect for them! I made the cupcake pops this weekend for a girls night and everyone raved over them. I think they are a really clever idea that you had for them. Kudos to you!

hf52771 said...

Letterpress = fabulous and elegant.

GORGEOUS!
I'd be happy to arm wrestle you for a set. LOL!

McGee Clan said...

The cards are so beautiful. I love your blog! I will come back to it more and see what's new!

Tina said...

Letterpress is such a classy and old world style art for cards. I love the slight texture of paper usually used for letterpress and how there are indentations made in the card. Also, what an added bonus to have cupcakes on the recipe cards...love it! Thanks for sharing! :o)

stefplus3 said...

These cards are so adorable!! I'm a total stationary addict and I'm also a huge recipe card user so these are perfect!! It's so hard to find recipe cards that don't look like they were made in 1950 :) Whenever someone asks me for a recipe I always write it out on a nice card and these would be so nice to give out!!

Adrienne said...

WOW! I am so amazed at all your sweet words, I had no idea this would be such a huge hit! Thank you thank you! I think I'll have to do some enclosures and mini-lopes for the holidays!!!

I've been thinking of doing a recipe card line for all you bakers/cooks out there do you think it would be well received and if so what size recipe card do you all use? I've been debating between a 3x5, 4x6 or 5x7?

Thanks for all the love and check back for more giveaways on Friday! You all know how to make a girl happy!

Mary Helen said...

Those recipe cards are so cute! I don't know what letterpress is, but I "need" (want) these recipe cards so that I can share all of Bakerella's yummy recipes and your talent with all of my friends & family!!!

moogieland.blogspot.com said...

I'm 57 and have 40 years of knowledge under my belt. I can whip out a killer cake, sew up a dress and paint a mural. But I'm totally clueless about blogging or just about anything to do with the internet.

It is only pure dumb luck that I have gotten this far. In fact you can spot me in a crowd by the crazed look that is constantly in my eyes.

So anything and everything would be a help to an old dog learning new tricks.

Amy said...

I love letterpress because it is elegant and doesn't look like everything else that is out there. These cards would help me finally assemble all my random recipes on different pieces of paper in one place!

Simply said...

I'm not familiar with Letterpress, but the cards look lovely!

I've recently moved out on my own, and still trying to find my way around the kitchen. These cards would be such a wonderful addition to my small but growing kitchen!

Traci said...

Letterpress is so amazing. I just love the texture of the finished piece. Each one seems so unique and special. I love letterpress!

La Pixie said...

I don't know what Letterpress is, but these are the most beautiful recipe cards that Ive ever seen and I would love to have some. they are super cute and chic.

Emily said...

I love letterpress and your art is so original and timeless! My best friend is getting married in December and I would love to give these to her as a wedding gift. She enjoys baking so much and cupcakes are her favorite. I would be forever grateful! Thank you!

MB said...

LOVE the cards! I need some notes for my daughter's birthday party!

Courtney said...

I love letterpress cards because of the "feel" of them. It just screams high quality instead of something just printed out. Thanks for the chance to win!

dawn in ca said...

Ah, letterpress. Just so perfectly LOVELY is why I love it! I once had the most beautiful letterpress business cards made... the business didn't last, but the cards were gorgeous! ;) Hope I win. Thanks for the chance!

Mel said...

I am in love with recipes, but I have a hard time keeping my favorites close at hand. These wonderful recipe cards would be the ideal way to keep mine and my families favorite recipies close at hand. Yeah Friday giveaways.

Anonymous said...

Ok FIRST of all I found you through Bakerella's blog (yes she does ROCK!!!) SECOND of all I love anything cupcake, THIRD I love anything handmade (I am an advid crafter myself) and LASTLY I would love to be able to pass on a cupcake recipe to a friend on these wonderful cards. Your work is very clean and elegant. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win these cards.

Debbie/Phx, AZ

P.S. you should think about selling these cards since anything cupcake seems to be so popular right now.

Jane said...

I love Letterpress. Why do I need these cards.. Please they are so elegant. these cards are adorable. I am so happy I found this blog. Now added to my list of currently read blogs. Crossing my fingers for a win here :)

Allison said...

These letterpress recipie cards are adorable and elegant - love them and would love to record my favorite cupcake recipies on these darling cards.

JenniferB said...

I would really enjoy these gorgeous recipe cards for one simple reason...I've never owned a set of recipe cards. I have always stored my recipes electronically, but would love to experiment with the pros and cons of the written method. I think this would be a much more fun way to share my favorite recipes. And what better way to experiment than with such beautiful card creations!

radioactive girl said...

I make cookies for every doctor we see, and since my son and I have some health issues, that is a lot. I'd love some of these beautiful cards to use to include with the cooies or whatever we make for the doctors!

Tucker, Jess, and Brian said...

Those are by far the cutest recipe cards I've ever seen!!! WOW!! While I will admit I'm not exactly sure what letterpress is, I would still really love to win those recipe cards!! I just have plain old index cards in my recipe box, so these beauties would really liven up that box!! Keep up the great work!! :)

Liana said...

Your designs are lovely, I have not seen letterpress before but I am just starting to build my recipe collection from my late Mum's recipes and they would be suitably at home on your lovely cards x

Sarah said...

these are incredibly beautiful. who doesn't love cupcakes? i love the luxury of letterpress and the classic, old-fashioned appeal of it.

EllieRichellie said...

It is exactly that time of year when I begin planning my holiday party. This year will be the Fifth Annual Retro Ladies Holiday Cookie Exchange. I see lovely letterpress recipe cards. . .LOTS of lovely letterpress recipe cards. . .for this year's Retro Ladies. Hhhmmmm... .now to figure out where I find some inspired cards. . .

sunny said...

i love the texture of letterpress. it gives the ink an elegant richness.
there's nothing quite like being able to feel great design, as well as create great design.
LOVE the card. bravo.

Adrienne said...

Rebecca ::: I'm glad these cards seem comparable to other stationery out there, sometimes I wonder if I've lost my mind!

Megan ::: Excited that you think these are hip, blogging is a whole new ball game for me and finding my voice might never happen, but for now I can rely on giveaways to stay up to date!

Bree ::: Even boring recipes need to be written down, and I think the perfect incentive is cute cards too.

Jessica ::: You'll find out I'm kind of crazy when it comes to combining craft. I'm lucky my husband loves me. Sometimes I think he walks into our house wondering whether to just turn around and leave or put a blind fold on. Luckily I've finally separated studio from house, it was starting to take over! As for personalized items, I'll personalize anything, so you just let me know if you want your name on any of my work!

Landa ::: I don't have any sisters, and I'm always stealing recipes from my mom, maybe if I give her some recipe cards, then she can just write them down and give them to me instead of prying the original our of her fingers! JK mom (she's my number 1 fan), you are always good at sharing, thanks for the shoes!

kevin and angela ::: Sometimes I think my work is too simple, but other times I just really like plain white space surrounding a pretty little dingbat. My mind changes all the time, that's why I have ADD and my collection is just a mix of things I like!

CB ::: I'm glad you say freaking too, my kids tell me that's a bad word ;) but sometimes it is the perfect adjective for describing something cute.

Stephanie ::: I think my next project is cupcake pop mini notes with mini-lopes, check out the Etsy store soon!

Amanda ::: You've helped me make up my mind that I need to invest time in a recipe card line. I'm shooting to post live in October, just in time for holiday baking, any requests?

Sil BsAs ::: WOW, Argentina I can't believe I've got international giveaway guests, I'm glad you like the cards!

KRISTIE ::: AMEN to that!

MrsMarch AKA Barb ::: You are welcome to lurk around here anytime you'd like and enjoy a piece of letterpress pie!

IslandGirls ::: Thanks for the plug, you rock!

Zane and Lexi ::: Its a small small world! I hope you are enjoying motherhood after your crazy preggo scare! Been there, done that, try not to remember it! Love you and wished we lived closer together!

Holly ::: Yea for graphic designers! I have always loved your name however if I ever named my child Holly, she'd be Holly Berry, which I think wouldn't be too fun except for when the holidays roll around. Alas, it seems I'll have to settle for something else for my next child!

Sarah ::: Again, check Etsy in a month, I'm putting out a slew of recipe cards I think and I hope it's up to your expectations!

Kelli ::: I have a house and a letterpress in the basement and I don't recommend it. My kids are starting to wonder if they have a mother these days ;) I could use a lottery win too, but all you amazing ladies commenting on the blog has made me feel like I'm having giveaway comment lottery! If you are serious about getting a letterpress in your life, consider when buying that house the fact that my letterpress will stay with the house if we ever have to move. You'll want a main floor access with at least a 36" doorway before taking a plunge like that! Keep on dreaming, if you really want it you'll make it work!

Lisa ::: Letterpress makes my fingers happy too, I just have to remember to wash my hands between printing and snacking on cupcake pops!

Morgana ::: These cards are solid, they are printed on a nice thick pillowy paper that is at least double the thickness of cardstock.

Jade ::: I'm a stationery addict too, thus the blog and business, thanks for pinning after my winning product!

McGee Clan ::: Glad you like the blog, stick around for more fun!

Debbie/Phx, Az ::: They are for sale! Check out the Etsy shop, dingbatpress.etsy.com

Radioactive girl ::: you are so sweet to take cookies to your doctors! I've never thought of that but am adding it to my list of kind things to do, thanks for being so inspiring!

EllieRichelle ::: I'm listing some rocking retro recipe cards on Etsy this week, you are gonna love these babes! Email me and I'll let you know when they're up!

I LOVE YOU ALL, come back next Friday for another giveaway and on the 12th to find out the winner!

Love, Adrienne

I love Letterpress... because I have never seen anything slose to it. Even on a picture you want to touch the paper, feel the oicture, it has a relief, a real life side to it. See the cakes? You just want to take one out of the card. It feels possibel. Oh, and the colours? The nice raibow, peachy colors? they just make your heart go "Wow, this is going to be a nice day"... Keep it up!

linhers said...

i definitely need your recipe cards! i am so obsessed with cupcakes that i even drew a cupcake & had it tattooed behind my ear! i love to bake as much as i can... at least once a week! i'm always trying new recipes and creating my own, so having recipe cards with cupcake pops on them would be perfect! i'm even considering making cupcake pops for the birthday (which is on the 13th! these would be the perfect birthday gift by the way)!

Scary Mommy said...

I just adore these. You are super talented- these are fabulous!!!!

Carrie said...

Those cards are amazing. I didn't know people could make things like that. What a talent. They look to great to write on, but I'd have to give it a try if I win!

Anonymous said...

I would love to have those. I need recipe cards to attach to the gifts of goodies I'll be giving to the kids friends for halloween. What perfect colors these would be. Tracy sftacek@earthlink.net

Jen B. said...

What I love the most about letterpress is the weight of the stock and the texture of the impression--such a tactile delight. Your designs are lovely!

Tina said...

classic yet modern, conservative yet hip, lovely yet gorgeous

a Brit Of Cake said...

just like a cake that's hand made from scratch,baked with love & decorated with elegance,the cards reflect the same old traditions of baking,but represent what can be created & then recorded forever. This is why as a new baker/cake decorator i need to put all those ideas of mine and ideas from others on to these cards to cherish them always and be at my fingertips!
Thanks for such an amazing blog!

BMoreSweet said...

These are just so lovely! I am a home baker/ blogger myself and would step on my grandmother for a set of these!!

Casey said...

becuase they look as delicious as a real cupcake would taste! : )

yummy!

Adrienne said...

Linhers ::: My little bud turns 4 on the 13th as well! Too bad it isn't on a Friday this year! Happy birthday!

Tracy ::: I'm printing Halloween colored cupcake pops tomorrow so they should be listed by next week on my Etsy shop http://dingbatpress.etsy.com so if you don't win you can check some halloween ones out there!

bmoresweet ::: you had me in stitches, I don't know if I'd step on my grandmother for these but there might be some things I would do to deserve such attention! I sure hope you grandma has a frying pan handy for when you come steamrolling down the lane.

casey ::: I like that my work looks tasty. You know, technically you could try to eat these but I'm not sure they'd be good for the digestive system. All that cotton paper might clog the arteries!

Chelsea said...

These are beautiful! I love letterpress because of the rich texture and dimensions added to simple cards, turning them into a luxuriously deluxe treat.

dayanara said...

Letterpress is beautiful. Its a clean sphisticated and wonderful to use in invitations and what not. Its a little on the pricey side but truly worth it..i love the look, and I also love Bakerella...and that sweet and fresh recipe card is perfectly delicious and I want it!!!!

Rachel said...

Because I am a card freak (not to mention a cupcake freak) and love sending unique cards that no one else will be sending out. These look especially beautiful - elegant but not too fancy (I mean that in a good way, I promise!).

Scarlet Lily said...

What lovely cards you've offered to give away!! I LOVE letterpress b/c of it's clean lines and modern look. The cupcake pops give the cards a great whimsical feel.

Here's hoping I win the drawing!

egodbey said...

oh, how sweet they are! i love letterpress for it's elegance and thoughtfulness, and i would be delighted to pass out my recipes on such marvelous cards!

The Tieman Family said...

I love those- very cute, but still simple- just my style- I love Bakerella too!

World of Michael Trent said...

Letterpress and cupcakes? Together? How awesome. Anything letter press is just so beautiful. As a card maker (rubber stamps - not letterpress) and as a guy that loves to bake cupcakes, I totally need these. But anyone who wins would be lucky.

Benson & Sarah Garner said...

I love letter press because - It's beautifully creative.
And I need these cards because: 1)they are way cuter than the index cards I use to write my recipes on now 2) I just bought a house and cannot afford fun things like bakerella inspired recipe cards! :)

Jennifer said...

I am such a fan of bakerella and I think those cupcake pops are the cutest- good thinking making cards of them

Ashlee said...

I don't know what letterpress is, but I do know that I need some recipe cards! All of my recipes that I use are on random pieces of paper and stuck in random places! I would be nice to have some cards that not only look good, but also give me organization!

Amy Cabrero said...

I do love the unique designs of the letterhead. This is my kind of style. It has the modern effect with the polkadot in frosting. And minimal effect with the simplicity. It's just me!

cakegrilsan said...

Your cards are so pretty and festive. They will make a wonderful addition to any home made treat given out for the Holidays.

lindsey said...

As a graphic designer I have long loved the art of letterpress. I love the feel of the indention. I love that it has such a human element to it, someone put their heart into each piece. I have to say, I really LOVE these recipe cards. I hope I win, thanks for the chance!

Jingle said...

These are SO gorgeous! I am a scrapbooker, so recipe cards that are also a beautiful work of art are perfect for me! I love them!

Shawna said...

Classic, Clean and superbly beautiful!

Love it!

vettie said...

I love these recipe cards. As a lover of all foods, I would definitely get great use out of these and you did a great job in creating them. They are beautiful!

wan-nabe said...

i heart letterpress so because it reminds me of our wedding. and the groomzilla i married, who wouldn't settle for less than letterpress!

and, i love all things cupcake. i think i'll go have one right now.

Kim said...

I bake a lot for others (mostly DH's family) and my MIL would be green with envy over these cards. Also I think they are really stunning.

Adrienne said...

kim ::: isn't it just so satisfactory to have an MIL that is green with envy ;)?

The Lowells said...

So cute...and fun to be able to transfer some of my "on the back of an envelope" recipes! Thanks so much!

ks said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your cards! I have just collected all of my Grandmother's family recipes and was trying to figure out how to put them away for safe keeping. These sure would do it. :)

bleauregard said...

DEAR LORD You have sparked my life! Oh Etsy, how you inspire me! Just looking at those darling cards has made this amazingly boring, begruging college day fantastic. You would bring some much needed delight to my little life by such an awesome gift. Pick me! I'll bake you treasures forever!

Julie said...

I don't know that I'm familiar enough with Letterpress to comment there but the cards are utterly adorable and who doesn't need more adorable in there life? I know I do. And of course, I really need recipe cards because I'm always passing on my favorite recipes because good food will only feed once but a recipe is the gift that keeps on giving.

made sweet said...

letterpress. beautiful design. recipe cards. cupcake pops. Thank you for rolling all of the best things into one. You are amazing.

mannequin said...

These are so gorgeous and oft times, recipes get scribbled on the backs of scrap papers, wet, worn and torn.
Family recipes and special ones need to be treated with love. What better way to do that than with these gorgeous recipe cards?
I would love to win and IF I did, I'd even buy a new recipe box to match.

Miss Crys said...

I think these cards are soo cute. I would love to win some because I just signed up for the Orlando Culinary Academy and these would come in handy for all of the fun and delicious new dishes I will be learning.

sherthebear said...

Amazing cards. letterpress always looks so elegant!

Lisa said...

Love your creation! Gotta think of a name for my blooming business and have you print some! Would love to win these in the meantime! Thanks for the creativity!

Elisha said...

Letterpress just FEELS good. I like the slightly heavier paper, and how the print sinks in. I can't stop running my fingers over it. and the colors just always seem better on a letterpress. I'm a sucker for letterpressed stuff! Love it.

Spogden said...

After just now collecting 100 receipes on normal blan receipe cards, the letterpress was introduced to me. And what better way to start my transition than with such beautiful Letterpress cards with phenominally cute cupcake pops! I'd LOVE to have some of those cards.

Erica said...

i love your cards! i would love to enter...not knowing what letter press is...but off to find out

LitVamp said...

I love how classic and artsy letter press looks -- color carved into paper. An ancient art that is quickly becoming lost in the world of Inkjet.

The Isom Eight said...

I love the look of letterpress-so classy & sophisticated. I think it is great! Oh-and the cards-so cute! I would LOVE them too!

Diane Browning said...

I would like to say I really need these cards because I love to bake. However, I tried to make those lovely Bakerella cupcake pops but it was an utter failure. But, I'm planning on trying them again sometime.

Hagan221 said...

So Cute! They are way better than the plain white index cards that I use for recipes now. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Veganrocks said...

I love to bake, and I love to collect recipe cards!! :)

Prachi Patel said...

I love letterpress and all your work is absolutely gorgeous. These would make writing notes and invitations so much fun...and i would never want to give them away. I also loveeee cupcake pops, but would love these for my mom!

Melody said...

In these days of digital printing, letterpress gives us a sense of artistry. Great work!

Jenny said...

i'm a big fan of bakerella so these recipe cards would be great. it would also liven up my boring recipe box because these letter press cards are absolutely beautiful.

Madeline said...

I love letterpress because it's such a beautiful art. There is nothing better than an invitation or stationary letterpressed on exquisite paper.

Adrienne said...

VĂ©ronique said...

they are fabulous! i love the paper texture.. Its a really lovely art :)

Michelle Baker said...

I would love to have a set of these cards because I've recently joined weight watchers, and as a total fresh start I threw out all of my old recipes (oh, it hurt to do it, I had so many lovely ones!). I have an empty recipe box now that I need to fill!

Erin D. said...

I'd love to have these cards, because the only ones I have now are from the dollar store, with lovely purple flowers on them (haha)...they're terrible! :)

Monica said...

Those are adorable, and that was so sweet of you to make them for Bakerella. Regardless if I win the free ones or not, you deserve kudos and have opened my eyes to a new idea for organizing my mess of recipes.

Merav said...

I neeeeeed these cards because I am the only person left in the world who still sends out snail mail, BUT - if I were to send someone a recipe on one of these beautiful cards I would TOTALLY start the snail mail cycle back up. I mean, who can resist responding to a card that is written on such a beautiful piece of paper!!

So can I pleeeeease have them?? I'm a poor starving college student and I loveeee your cards! And your blog. :)

Adventures in Stepford said...

thanks for the competition and lovely work on the recipe cards- they look gorgeous!

tanalicious said...

oh. how i love cute recipe cards. i need to win because mine are almost gone. probably because i give out so many recipes and want them to be on fancy cards, not just notepaper.

Britney and Jaren Jensen said...

Adorable recipe cards! I think they are to die for & maybe your drawing is done, but I would love to have these! You are super talented :)

AC Supers said...

I need recipe cards because... my kids keep asking what is written on my printed recipes papers because of all the food stains on it!

lisa (lost pezhead) said...

is because they are just super cute and i love the modern style a reason? what a good thing to have on a plate of goodies you're giving someone...love them!

Pretty much all of my stationary comes from Letterpress. I love to run my fingers over the paper and feel the texture and I love picking out just the right card for the individual to whom I am writing. I am a baking fanatic looking to open up a cupcake shop soon. These cards would be perfect for me to send recipes to friends and loved ones!

pink-punch said...

I need these cards because they are so fabulous! And I'm ridiculously obsessed with cupcakes, so they'll make a nice addition to my collection!

Nicole said...

These are fabulous. I am just getting into cooking and collecting recipes as a new wife and mom and these would be a great addition to my new collection! love your blog!

Elizabeth said...

OMG! THose are so cute! I"m on my way to check out the rest of your stuff. Those cards are just stunning! I can't wait to see evertyhing else. Oh I hope i win them!!

Andrea said...

Oh goodness ... those cards are SO beautiful. Love the color, design and the perfect pairing with the letterpress. Why do I love letterpress? ... Well holding a BA in Graphic Design and just my general love of arts, letterpress expresses so many great things in one spot. I love the texture it creates, the spot coloring created to accent great design and mostly I just think of them as little pieces (or big) pieces of art.

Wonderful work!!

Aly (hvbb01@gmail.com) said...

In a world where everything is mass produced, any object that can be created using traditional, hand-crafted methods always has a character of its own. It carries the creativity of the mind who designed it, the efforts and labor of the person who handcrafted it, and the presence and character of the individual who it represents; letterpress is just that. It is a representation of all the hands who have labored together to create a thing of beauty--a piece to represent the uniqueness of an individual. It is a representation of an undying tradition, of unique style and of grace.

pcs2888 said...

I literally just stumbled on this site - was checking out the Bakerella site for the cupcake pops - and love your designs!! I've always loved letterpress, too - for the texture, ethereal quality of the color, but your graphics are particularly eye catching. It would be great karma if I won these cards and it was pure chance to find out about the giveaway!

Kelly said...

I've always been known as a "paper product freak" I love papers, stationary, paper products....and I just LOVE Bakerella, so you've put two things together that I LOVE..and lastly, I would love to WIN :o)

kvb said...
