FUN HALLOWEEN ENVELOPE – Monthly Mail Art, October 2017

Hi all! I’m back with another Monthly Mail Art envelope and video for Simon Says Stamp. This month, I created a Halloween themed custom envelope. I used the Plushoween stamp set from Mama Elephant to create a cute scene along the bottom of the envelope.

(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).

Because I wanted to use Copic Markers on the scene, I created an envelope out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock (a Copic-friendly paper) using the 1-2-3 Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. You can make an envelope out of any kind of paper using this punch board.

Also because of my plan to color with Copics, I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. It’s an ink that works well with Copics.

I knew I wanted to have a banner stretching between the animals so that I could put Joanie’s name on it. So I first sketched the banner using a pencil and then went over the lines with a Memento Tuxedo Black Marker (this marker also works with Copics).

After coloring the scene with Copic Markers, I used the Large Dots Stencil to blend on some Pumice Stone Distress Ink, mostly on the top half of the envelope. Joanie’s address was added using an Extra Fine Pilot Envelope Addressing Pen.

NOTE: Address used with permission.

I hope you love today’s envelope! Thanks for stopping by. :)
