A Card Without No Envelope? That’s Like Peanut Butter Without Jelly!

Milk without cookies? Peanut butter without jelly? How are these things even possible? I’d argue that a card without an envelope is just as lost as the milk and the peanut butter. And the Painted Poppies stamp set from the NEW 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog has the perfect stamp for easy envelope art.

Be sure to stamp on your envelopes – you already have the supplies out, why not make the packaging special? Who doesn’t love that in their mailbox among the bills?

“How To” tips for adding pizzazz to your envelopes:

  • Stamp off the edges of the envelope.
  • Use Stampin’ Write Markers (water based) so that color does not saturate envelope).
  • Address with Journaling Pens for smooth neat finish.
  • Add strong background color with a Sponge Brayer, but first mask the address spot with a piece of post-it note.

And then of course when you’re stamping the envelope, you’ll want to use your supplies to decorate the inside of your card, too. The limited-time Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Sending You Thoughts, is a terrific set – not only because it’s free with a $50 order, but also because it includes sentiments for both the front AND the inside of your cards.
