Lettering, Mail Art

ENVELOPE DESIGN – Large Number Stamps + Brush Lettering

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Happy Saturday, all! I’m back with another Monthly Mail Art. :)

For this month’s envelope, I wanted to try out stamping the large numbers in Concord & 9th’s Notable Numbers stamp set. I thought they would be perfect for the number in an address!

(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 stamped the numbers in Acorn Versafine Clair ink and lettered the rest of the address using a light brown Tombow marker.

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Rose Marie!

I used a mixture of current postage (the Lincoln stamp is a USPS Forever stamp), and unused vintage postage stamps from my stash. With the unusual style of address, I’m anticipating the need for additional postage, so the vintage stamps will cover that.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

    Awesome Kristina it’s a great piece of Art although you only used numbers and letters. Thanks for showing this awesome video and the great tip about the eraser. I am looking for a while now for a soft eraser for coloured cardstock. My experience with erasers is that they are often good for white cardstock but on coloured cardstock you see often that you used an eraser.

    WOW ! That’s beautiful, combining all those different browns has made a great envelope from just Kraft colour. Although I adore that stamp set I have a version of that from Crafter’s Companions so I might try this myself. Thanks for all the advice in your video.
