Rachael Connerton Photo Shoot

13th February 2018 Ethereal Laser cut invite

Our dear friend, inspirational photographer and secret spa indulger (we both share a love for Ragdale Hall!) Rachael Connerton, has just posted the most wonderful and oh so generous feature on little old Hummingbird Cards. We always knew she had a stationery obsession but when she popped into the studio for a wonderful day of shooting we certainly found out, we just couldn’t stop her clicking away. And I can’t believe how magical it was, we had a giggle, drank cups of tea and the results you can see were stunning. Head over to Rachael and Ian’s journal for more….. Thank…

The Floral Monogram

19th January 2018

A new wedding season has started so we have been looking back at some of our favourite projects from last year.  Let’s just say this design for Victoria & Matt was one of those. We love the ‘something old, something new’ tradition and this invite mixes these perfectly. An elegant, romantic floral design, laser cut with trailing roses surrounding a monogram, but the style was modern, a unique pocket-fold.  The invite folded out to reveal the invitation, a poem and all the little extra cards, wedding details and RSVP cards, neatly tucked away in a pretty pocket. The delicate design looked dreamy…

Whimsical Butterfly

11th January 2018 BUTTERFLY f

Some days are busier than others and some days turn out strangely more exciting than others! After a phone call to the studio the HB team were excited by the prospect of a new project. We’d been asked to create some laser cut butterflies to top some patisserie for an afternoon tea event. We started sketching and playing around with ideas for laser cut butterflies to top the mini patisseries being created. These are some of our paper cut prototypes!     Our little winged lovelies headed to London and one of the butterfly designs, in two sizes was chosen in black…

A Blenheim Palace Fairytale

11th October 2017

We’ve had such a busy summer with lots of exciting projects. When Lucy & Daniel got in touch we chatted through their plans and just loved the ideas they were putting together. They had seen our ‘Fairytale Design‘ which they liked but wanted to create something truly bespoke with the same feel as this design. The stunning Blenheim Palace had been booked for their reception so they felt it would be wonderful to include this as a backdrop and to create their own fairy tale wedding invitation design. Both Lucy and Daniel are vets and have lots of animals! They wanted…

P.S Will you marry me?

21st July 2017

We mentioned in our last post that we’d heard so many wonderful love stories this summer. This one made us all stop working…it was truly the most amazing and oh so romantic proposal ever. It was a manic Monday morning as normal in the studio, there was a flurry of processing all the weekend orders, filling post bags and clock watching to get everything picked, made and wrapped. We sell our greetings cards and stationery on Not On The High Street and we’d had an order for a hand written card. Not so strange, we get lots every day, but the…

Spellbound in Keswick!

19th July 2017

Its’s been a busy old summer with lots of beautiful bespoke designs being created here in the HB studio. We’ve also heard so many amazing love stories, so we thought we’d share a few of them with you. When Sarah and Steve got in touch they loved the feel of our ‘Fairy Tale’ design but really wanted something special and unique that would mean something to them. So they decided to start designing one themselves and sent us some ideas. They had got engaged in Keswick, looking out over the vast Derwent Water lake towards the mountains, on ‘their’ now special bench!…
