Hi all I am up on the blog for Creative Embellishments today. I was skyping with a friend from Australia. We had been talking about different crafts we have made for each other. She had mentioned some envelopes that I sent her with some goodies last year that she really loved. I decided to make a few more for her as they are super fun to make for her Christmas box.
I started off with craft envelopes and then sprayed with different sprays in orange, blue, and brown. I then stamped in brown ink with my favorite Creative Embellishment Stamps: Distressed Brick Stamp, Distressed Script Stamp, and Distressed Text Stamp. To Finish off the background, I edged the envelopes in brown and black inks. Then I added a few black rub-ons.
This project is perfect for using some left over bits and bobs. I used cheese cloth and some scrap papers to provide a base. Then I added some fun chippies. For the first envelope I used the lace border and dress form chippies. I used the live chippie from the happy word set for the second envelope. For the last envie I used the faith chippie.
