Stamped Mail Art Envelopes for National Letter Writing Month

Stamped Mail Art Envelopes

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a set of mail art envelopes that I stamped up for National Letter Writing Month. I have a thing for handwriting, so I really appreciate it when I receive a letter or card in the mail. I have a box full of handwritten letters and cards that I have saved over the years. This is all that I have left from some of my relatives. I thought it would be fun to celebrate National Letter Writing Month by sending some love through the mail in a pretty stamped envelope. The selection of stamps in the Paper Wings Productions Store is amazing, and you're sure to find a great design for any recipient. I chose some of my favorite stamp sets for this project.

Colofully Colored Stamped Fibonacci Sprial Mail Art Envelope

Whenever I get stuck with design, I like to go back to the basics. The Sacred Geometry 2 Clear Stamp Set has classic patterns that are super fun to work with. I chose the Fibonacci Spiral stamp for this envelope. I stamped up the left side of the envelope using black archival ink and then colored in the shapes with Distress Markers. I added a bit of decoration to the edge of the geometric design with the Lace Border Outline Clear Stamp.

Stamped Globe with White Clouds on Kraft Mail Art Envelope

I wanted to use a kraft envelope specifically with a white gel pen. I just love how the white ink really pops off the paper for a 3D-like effect. I used the Earth and Sky Mélange Cling Stamp Set to decorate the top half of this envelope. I added an address box using the inner frame of the polaroid stamp from the Snapshot Framer Clear Stamp Set.

Colorful Stamped Bird Panel Mail Art Envelope

I had to use a stamp featuring something with wings for my last design. The Bird Panel Clear Stamp Set is so beautiful and is an easy way to add a pretty scene using just one stamp. I used the Snapshot Framer Clear Stamp Set again to add an address spot, but this time I used the larger outer frame. After inking up the entire stamp, I removed the ink from the smaller frame using a wet wipe, and then stamped only the larger frame onto the envelope.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to send a friend or loved one some happy mail this month.
