Easy Faux Lettering (Tracing a Stamp!) + Mail Art

Happy Monday! When I saw the You Are So Loved stamp from My Favorite Things, I immediately wanted to create today’s card. I thought it would be so fun to make a clean and simple card where I trace over the stamped greeting with paint pens or markers. The Karin Pigment Deco Brush markers are perfect for this! I used the Passion set since it had lots of reds and pinks. :)

Then I couldn’t help myself–I just had to create a mail art envelope! I think my favorite part of the envelope is the completely red flap that I “painted” with one of the markers. Then I traced the I Like Small Dots stencil from Simon Says Stamp to create outlined polka dots with a white Gelly Roll pen.

Enjoy today’s video!
