Sending You Happy Mail

SENDING YOU HAPPY MAIL

Who’s ready for some bright & cheery colours?! I know I am. Spring can’t come too soon – although I know that winter just recently started. Oh well. Today I’m sharing a bright & springy card, at least. Sending you happy mail is created with a cute stamp and coordinating die set called Happy Mail by Pretty Pink Posh.

BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS

I couldn’t resist – happy mail calls for the ‘bluebird of happiness’!

Sending You Happy Mail

Creating this card was just a fun, relaxing time spent with my colouring tools. If I do say so myself, I’m quite happy with how it turned out!

BACKGROUND

To create the background, cut a panel of white cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″. On the bottom portion, use your favourite blending tool and blend on Shabby Shutters Distress ink. This is a light greenish-yellow; the photo above makes it look more yellow than green.

On the top portion of the panel, blend on some Tumbled Glass Distress ink; it’s a soft blue, perfect for the sky on a spring day.

Stamp the sentiment from the Happy Mail stamp set across the top of the panel, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I love this deep black, that’s fine enough for script letters.

CREATE YOUR ELEMENTS

On separate white cardstock, stamp the mailbox, bird and letter images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp 3 of the little envelopes. Use your favourite markers – alcohol or regular – to colour in the images.  Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in Carmine Red for the hearts,letters & mailbox arm, and Light & Pale Green for the grass. For the other colours, I used SU! Blends alcohol marker combos; Crumb Cake for the mailbox post, Smoky Slate for the mailbox, Pool Party for the bird and Pool Party Light for the letters.

PUT IT TOGETHER

Once your colouring is done, use the coordinating Happy Mail dies to die cut the mailbox, bird and letters. Attach them to your card front with foam tape. Finally, attach your front panel to your card base with more foam tape.

QUICK, EASY & CUTE!

This card meets 3 base criteria – it’s quick, it’s easy and best of all, it’s cute! (okay, I know not every occasion calls for cute…)  It would make a great card for a birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just to say ‘hi’ to a friend.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :)
