October is one of our best-loved months for so many reasons: the colors, the harvest, the romantic nip in the air, the opportunity to add creative layers to the wardrobe and, above all, Halloween! It’s up there on our list of favorite holidays — after our birthdays, of course. It’s a time when we can let our fashion freak flags fly in a way that might not be appropriate on most other days of the year. In this post we’re rounding up some of our favorite Masha Halloween looks for your viewing pleasure, and possible inspiration — leave your “I don’t know what to be for Halloween” excuses at home. Let the countdown to the dress-up parade begin!
Our cards are suiting up too with brand new cozy Kraft envelopes that feel so right for the season. The warm neutral color lets the vibrant artwork pop. Find more Masha halloween mischief here.
In newest Masha news: Refinery29 + Target + Etsy. We’re so excited to share a few of biggies this week.
Our Pack Leader Wolf card is featured in Refinery29 current gift guide! We’re addicted to R29 so it’s extra sweet to be part of it and in such good company. Check out the full post with gift ideas for any age.
We’re also thrilled to introduce two new bespoke collections at select Target stores.First up: Prints Charming, a 12-card line that cleverly marries exclusive watercolor illustrations with irresistible holographic metallic foils and glitter processes. The combinations make for a treat that’s sweet and rich – yes please!
The Water Typo 12-card line juxtaposes free-flowing and abstract watercolor palette with offbeat messages done in Masha’s hand (painted into the washes – see how the color pools around ;)?) and printed in various holographic metallic foils. The whole effect is fast, festive, artsy fun, don’t you think? If you or your recipient(s) are color and texture junkies like us, these are for you! Let’s get psychedelic.
Both these card lines are part of our diffusion brand M by Masha D’yans and have messages inside and out for a complete package. To see more, please visit your Target store. You’ll only find these gems of color happiness in the boutique section of Target cards so be sure to check them out while they last!
Last but not least, good news for all you Etsy addicts! We just added an Etsy outpost of Masha shop featuring our bestest sellers. You’ll notice the pricing is a bit different, but with lower shipping on smaller quantities it comes to the same deal. Give it a whirl – we’d love to know what you think. The plan is to add one-of-a-kind products in the future.
Our new cards have arrived! And they’re looking pretty springy and hopelessly romantic. Enjoy fresh picks for all occasions from the garden of #watercolormischief. We’re talking year-round Birthday, Just Because, Thinking of You, Encouragement, Mother’s Day, Bridal, Love and Thank You – when cards are this irresistible the possibilities are endless! Read about the inspiration and process behind the bloom-eriffic designs here and get your mittens on all nine in our shop starting March 1.

Chances are you probably heard that we’ve been making #watercolormischief in fiber form with the fabulous Seattle-based Clothworks, who focus on premium quality quilting cotton fabrics masterfully printed in Europe. Look for them in independent quilt and fabric shops all over the United States and internationally. This week we thought we’d highlight the creativity of some of our awesome fabric customers. There are few things as exciting or gratifying as seeing your artwork take on another form and a whole new life. Sew… let’s check out fun with Masha fabric!

We hope you celebrated the birth of 2015 with merriment and in high style! We’ve got a lot planned for this year in our mission to elevate the art of correspondence with much watercolor mischief, and that all begins with a quick glance back. 2014 was a busy one here at Masha D’yans Design. In case you missed them, venture below for some monthly highlights:
Happy everything! And hooray because Masha’s new fashion collection has arrived! Calling all watercolor-and-print-maniacs! Get your fix of splashy art on sweet silhouettes to sport into 2015. After much searching (and frantic outfit changing, probably brought on by a mix of nerves and glee), we finally found an apparel partner to serve up #watercolormischief on beautiful clothing the way it’s meant to be: WITHOUT BORDERS! Go to printallover.me/collections/mashadyans/ to lay eyes on the first wave of our favorite pieces: we’re talking tees, drop pants, bodicon dresses and hoodies! And don’t forget to let us know what you think by tweeting @mashadyans or by any other means necessary. Here’s a little closeup preview to get your closet party started!
