NEW Design Gig!

I am thrilled to tell you that I have been chosen to design for Simply Stamps!  This isn't an ordinary "stamp site" - while they have a few rubber stamps, they also have self inking stamps [so convenient], along with inks, and other products.  Take a few minutes and check out the site.  Meanwhile, I am having fun making some out-of-the-box projects [and cards].

For my first project, I went with something, that I believe, adds that last little pop for sending out our cards.

Yep, a finished envelope!  Just that last little pop to finish off our handmade cards.

I started by creating an envelope topper template in my Silhouette, and cut out 6.  I used copy paper, to keep the envelope light.  Sometimes my cards go over the basic weight and costs more postage.  The last thing I want is for the envelope to cost me more ;).

Once I cut out the template, I stamped them, sponged on ink for a more finished look, and adhered them into the envelope.  
I finished off by stamping on my self inking return address stamp.  

I love these!  Eventually, I will probably make matching cards.  However, that really isn't necessary - just having the envies decorated and ready for mailing is awesome.

Here are the supplies I used for today's project:

Remember I said SS carries ink?  You betcha!
[Nice and juicy, and fabulous]
These are the colors I used:
Seattle Sky
Hunter Green

That's it for my first DT assignment.  What do you think?  Like I said earlier, pop on over to Simply Stamps and check out the array of products they have.  It is pretty fabulous.

On a side note; SS is running a challenge of writing letters!  Yep, get off that phone, sit down, and actually put a pen to paper.  You can see the rules HERE.  The challenge runs until February 14th.

Thanks for stopping by~

Congratulations, Vicki! I look forward to more of your projects. Your envelope liners are so nice - a gorgeous finishing touch. BTW, I do write letters to friends and family. Our youngest son forbids me to e-mail him. He's a big fan of snail mail. But I don't do Instagram so won't be participating in the challenge. Have a great day :)
