Card & Mail Art – Art Impressions Happy Mailbox Cubbies

Hello, all! Today I have a card and envelope made using the Happy Mailbox Cubbies stamps and dies from Art Impressions. This adorable stamp and dies set was just calling out to be used on some mail art! I couldn’t resist!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

The envelope was made using Canson 90 lb. watercolor paper, and the large mailbox image from the stamp set was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I watercolored the scene using Peerless Watercolors and created the address area using Karin Markers and Tombow drawing pens.

The envelope was sealed using Distress Micro Glaze, which protects the envelope from moisture.

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Katie! To submit your address for use on future mail art envelopes, please fill out this form. There is a new form each month to keep addresses current.

I kept the card very simple. I stamped the images on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper, watercolored them, and then die cut all the pieces using the dies in the project kit. Then I assembled all the cubbies using glue and foam adhesive. The scene was adhered to a card base made from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon with another card video. :)
