Mail Art

Easy Mail Art Design — Extend stamp images!

Hi all! I have a really quick mail art design for you featuring an image from Newton Nook’s STAMPtember collaboration set, Hello Beautiful. The blank space on the critter’s signs was just begging to be extended and a mailing address filled in! Like other STAMPtember collaboration sets, this stamp set is limited edition. So if you want it, you might want to act quickly. :)

(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).

I used a Neenah Solar White envelope for my mail art today. And to extend the size of the sign the cat is holding, I masked the two ends with tape when inking up the stamp (so that no ink would be applied to the ends). I stamped the image, and then used a black pen and a ruler to draw the lines out larger and make the sign much larger. It was the perfect size for the address!

Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils were used to color the envelope.
