MPIX 2016 Holiday Card Design

Ampersand Design Studio

Around this time of year, we both love getting the mail each day in hopes of hearing from friends and family and seeing new family photos! It's the best isn't it? When else do you get fun mail every day for a month!? We have a fun announcement this year and that is our new line of holiday cards for Mpix! There's color and pattern and hand lettering and we loved every minute of designing these! Hope you guys love them, too! And...guess what? They are 30% off now through December 7! Hop on it!

Ampersand for Nod Holiday 2016!

Ampersand Design Studio

Halloween is long gone and Thanksgiving is tomorrow, so it's about time to think about decking the halls!

To help you out, we fortunate enough to design some SUPER cool new products for The Land of Nod's holiday line again this year! We seriously can't say it enough: working with Nod is amazing. The company is amazing, the people are amazing, the products are amazing - we are so lucky! 

This year we're loving the colors in all of the new ornaments, especially the Christmas Cheer ornaments. Splatter paint? Yes please! We (um, we mean, our kiddos...) are already counting down the days until we can break out the new advent calendar! So many fun surprises to find in each little pocket of the Merry Mod Toy Advent Calendar.

Kelly, from Studio DIY, sure knows how to deck the halls! She made our ornaments feel right at home in this metallic and rainbow-color-filled Christmas tree! Thanks, Kelly!

Ok, now let us show you the whole collection and all the fun details! Come along...

Glad Tidings Ornaments (Set of 3) - sorry, currently unavailable

Christmas Cheer Ornaments (Set of 4) - just to give your tree a little splash of fun!

Merry Mod Advent Calendar - we both have these for our kids and they are so perfect! It's genius to have lots of different size pockets to accommodate the various little gifts!

Christmas Company Ornaments - Build your family or friends and don't forget the pets!

Little Christmas ornament - these just have to be added to your collection! Each one is hand-painted on solid wood pieces!

Color-Dipped Letter Ornaments - these are so fun to write your own words, but we also have been using them as initials for the stockings!

Tri-Color Baby's First Ornament - perfect gift for anyone with a new little one!!

Ampersand for Command // DIY Mixed-Media Garland

We love a good garland, and wanted to create one for our Sugarplum scene, but we wanted to do something we hadn’t seen before. This led to us combining all kinds of materials for a wall of different textures, colors and lusters draped in layers.We put a new twist on the awesome Command™ Party Banner Anchors and used them in layers to create this look. We used chunky yarn and even braided some with sequins for a surprising combo, cut paper and attached it to fishing line, and for our most unconventional component, we threw in some mylar strips from those shiny fringed door curtains you can get at party supply stores. We love the way it turned out because it works great as a photo backdrop or just a conversation piece for people as they refill their glasses. Head over to Command.com for the full DIY!

To give our Gilded Modern look our own playful touch, we created a gallery of painted holiday artwork, which we placed in simple frames to hang alongside a huge DIY gold himmeli wreath (we used this great tutorial for the wreath). The beauty of the gallery wall is that, using Command™ Picture Hanging Strips, it is the easiest thing in the world to put up, move around and take down­— perfect for something you don’t want to keep up all year. For the full step-by-step of the gallery wall creation, head to Command.com!
