Thanks for inviting me back as a guest designer!
I’ve got a confession to make. I sometimes like stamping envelopes more than making the cards that go inside of them. Envelopes are inexpensive and meant to be thrown away once they’re opened so there is zero stress if something isn’t quite perfect. I spread out a dozen or so at a time and whip up a batch that uses the same stamps and ink(s), each envelope one-of-a-kind within the series.
Care to give it a try? Simply fill a table with your favorite stamps (a LOT of them in varying sizes), a few acrylic blocks (I use low-tack double sided tape on mine, and nothing on the back of the unmounted rubber), and an inkpad or two to get things rolling. Stop at a dozen or set aside the first batch and keep stamping! The more you make the more ideas will pop up. At about 3 cents each, why not!
Go for a quirky, whimsical look or keep things serene and elegant. No rules, no planning needed other than leaving an open area for the name and address.
Once you’re done stamping, stack up the envelopes, get out the markers and pencils and head for a comfy chair to color and doodle. Choose bright offbeat colors like I did or go for a combo like navy, sepia, buttercream yellow and metallic gold.
Go forth and stamp envelopes!
