Mail Art with Stencil & Gel Pens

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Hello, all! I’m back with another Monthly Mail Art! This month’s envelope is super simple and easy–just a few supplies!

(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 black envelope (any dark surface will do), the Line Dance stencil, and different colors of Gelly Roll pens.

First I taped the stencil to the envelope to keep it in place while I worked. I traced the stencil design with alternating colors of gel pen, making sure to avoid neighboring sections using the same color. I planned to use the center-left section as the area for the mailing address, so I outlined that section with a fine white Gelly Roll pen. I also added thin white stripes to some of the smaller sections.

After removing the stencil, I penciled in the mailing address and then went over it with a bold white Gelly Roll pen. Super easy and quick!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Great idea, Kristina. I enjoy your more complicated envelopes, along with simpler ones like this.

    Very cool envelope. I’m wondering if you have to get it hand canceled at the P. O.

    Kristina – thx so much for all your videos – I always learn something from you ! A question on the white pens — I have had trouble with the pens not flowing smoothly after a couple uses. Doesn’t seem to matter what brand or if I store them upright or flat. Do you have any suggestions on how to keep them flowing and how to get them started again once they get wonky ? thks again…. chris in San Francisco

    That envelope is RIGHT ON! I don’t know the person to whom you are sending that envelope, but I live about 30 minutes from there! Always a surprise to see someone from Arkansas mentioned, since we’re a small state. May have to see if she’s a scrapbooker, too!!!

    Loving the bright colours on the envelope & the funky pattern, brilliant stencil. Fantastic stamp, you have much more funky stamps over the pond than we have, does the funky patterns ever cause issues at the post office so they don’t arrive where they are addressed x
