Stampotique Challenge 256 - Mail Art

Hello all and welcome back to the blog this week. I have a fun project to share with you today. Over at Stampotique's Challenge Blog they have great new challenge. This week it's all about "Mail Art"
make something you can mail.

As you all know I have been missing my baby girl, she went off to college a couple of week's ago. Well, I made her some things that I could mail to her. Last week I showed you the bookmark. Well this week I wanted to show the envelope I created for her letter and bookmark.

I used a envelope tool to create an envelope with this pretty piece of polka dot cardstock
It is a turquoise color with shiny silver polka dots. It's hard to see in the pic because I got a glare.

I used my stamps to stamp onto white cardstock and colored them and then cut them out and glued them onto the front of my envelope.

I used Stampotique stamps:
Take your time - By Daniel Torrente
3 Daisies  - By Terri Richardson
I hope my daughter really likes getting fun mail art haha! I plan on mailing many letters like this to her.

Don't forget that we have a brand new ATC swap on our Facebook 
page this month too. Come on over and join us

Stampotique Challenge 255- Polka Dots

Hello all and welcome back to the blog today, thanks for stopping by. Today I want to share with you a bookmark that I made for my daughter Leanne. She went off to college last week and I really miss her. I wanted to make something special for her that she can look at and know that I'm thinking about her.
Over at Stampotique's Designer Challenge we have a Polka Dot challenge going on so I'm entering this.

I used Stampotique stamp - Take Your Time by Daniel Torrente

I laminated it after I made it so that she can use it anywhere and not worry about messing it up or getting something on it.
I also wrote some of my favorite Bible verses on the back for her

I hope you will come on over to Stampotique's Designer Challenge  and join us for this fun challenge. Who doesn't like polka dots?? haha!

Don't forget that we have a brand new ATC swap on our Facebook page this month too. Come on over and join us
