LOTS OF DOGS! Monthly Mail Art Custom Envelope – Simon Says Stamp

Note: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Hello, all! I’m back with another Monthly Mail Art! For this month’s envelope, I thought I would create a scene using the cute dogs from Mama Elephant’s The Dog’s Woof stamp set.

(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 color the scene using Copic Markers, I opted to create my own custom envelope out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock (I know this paper works well with Copics). I used the We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board to create the envelope.

I kept the coloring very simple by only doing flat, solid areas of color. Super easy and quick! And with such a large scene to color, fast coloring is appreciated. :)

I finished off the envelope with a bit of ink blending using the Grid stencil from Simon and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. Christine’s mailing address was added using an extra fine Pilot Envelope Addressing Pen.

NOTE: Address used with permission.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the envelope.

    Kristina – what fun! I can see I’m going to need one of these Mama Elephant crowds of little folk… Love to watch you make envelopes – and it’s having an effect on my own mailings as well – can’t let you have ALL the fun!

    Kristina, your beautiful hand lettering alone makes an envelope special and then you do THIS and it makes it frame worthy! Fantastic!

    Hi Kristina!
    I have watched all of your mail art videos (working backwards) and am inspired to give one a try. I’ll start by sending my two daughters a card each with a fun envelope and see how things turn out. Thanks for all your inspiration!!!
