NEW: Saks + MoMA – a couple of sparkling Masha news for you this week! Now that Halloween’s over, it’s officially time to put your spooky costumes away and gather beautiful things for the holliday season. To help you greet in style, we have brand new cards for MoMA online in stores. This Christmas / New Year season, Masha designed a pop-up watercolor city scene complete with metallic foil and glitter! And for Chanukah, she’s dreamed up a festive spinning dreidel. Please check these enchanting cards in stores in person or at MoMA shop online along with other feats of paper engineering from Masha.
If it’s watercolor mischief you’re looking to share these holidays, Saks Fifth Avenue has new cards for holidays and everyday available in exclusive mixed sets. You get two of each design in a box for all your gifting needs. Check out the new designs as well as some classic remixes online and in the New York flagship.
Just in time for summer we have fun new Masha fabric for you, makers! This collection is entitled Tree Faeries and features fun-loving ladies frolicking among flowers and butterflies. The full collection can be viewed and pre-ordered here. Our partners at Clothworks produce outstanding quality fabric for quilters and sewists who love to create. Fresh, fun and full of variety, the traditionally printed cottons speak for themselves. Look for new Masha fabric in independent shops, sewing and quilting magazines. We can’t wait to see what you’ll make with these – please share!
Happiest Mother’s Day (and, of course Cinco de Mayo)! We hope you’re celebrating with all the mother figures in your life this Sunday. We’re so excited to officially announce a new project, and because it’s a collaboration between Masha and her super mom, the timing seems right! It’s not exactly news (unless you’ve been hiding under a rock that is) that adult coloring books are still all the rage, so here’s a preview of the title page from Color Me Enchanted, published by Houghton Mifflin and available spring 2017. This book will feature intricate scenes to color from fairy tales around the world; famous (such as The Princess and the Pea (Masha’s childhood fave), Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty) and obscure, including brief quotes from the original texts to help bring the scenes to life. Interspersed between the vignettes are pages of luscious patterns. The order of the quotes and scenes is arranged into a larger overall narrative. Ready for some enchanting adult coloring action? We can’t for you to show us your colors! Until then, the wizards are busy painstakingly drawing away every delicious fairy detail… (Seriously, it’s so much work!)
New Year New Cards continues with five more beauties for your consideration!
Firstly, think pink (for spring and beyond) and greet beautifully. Sometimes – nay, we’d say, often – you just need a card with many a pretty flower to say ‘Happy Birthday.’ The delicate and fresh painting of Magnolia Branches will brighten anybody’s special day while expressing your tenderness and refined taste.
Up for adoption: cute-overload floral kitty or puppy for your birthday boy or girl! The adorable choice is yours.
If you have a lovely someone to thank, nothing is more time-tested than a fresh bouquet – send one that never wilts today!
For a more difficult occasion Masha’s new sympathy card will convey your heart-felt sorrow in an elegant and respectful way. Like a delicate snow flurry of a starry night.
All cards are available in shop for immediate shipment.
Happiest wishes for 2016!
New Year = New Cards here in the studio. First fresh treat for you is a totally novel concept and a world premier (!) – collectible cards that together complete a fun fairyland scene (which also spells LOVE, just in time for the next holiday). Inspired by our customers’ habit of keeping Masha cards to frame as art, the LoveLand series lets one collect a whole grouping to display, or to send one by one until the recipient collects all 8. Or, simply use them individually as all-occasion cards. When we think outside the card, the possiblities art endless.
Our LoveLand series is precisely and artistically engineered to encourage delicious, on-going correspondence by enabling you (or your giftee) to send or give these cards one by one… over any length of time. Be a Cupid and spread the Love by keeping those intriguing flames going and the art of the written letter alive this February (hello V Day) and beyond! Available as singles or 8-card boxed sets.
But wait, there’s even more…
New Year New Cards Part 2 coming soon.
A couple of good Masha news for you this week! Her brand new card for MoMA is in stores. For this season, Masha designed a pop-up Modern Chalet nestled in a snowy mountain lake scene. The best part (besides the 3-d reflection in the steely water)? The neon orange printing on the inside that quite literally lights up the windows, skylight and the mountains. The pictures don’t really do the alpenglow effect justice (yes we’ve been waiting for an occasion to use the word alpenglow) so please check this enchanting card in stores in person or in MoMA shop online along with other feats of paper engineering from Masha.
If it’s watercolor mischief you’re looking to share these holidays, Saks Fifth Avenue already has our brand new holiday cards available in mixed sets.
