3 flowers and fairy silhouettes

The Less is more challenge focuses on 1 layer cards featuring ‘3 of something’ and the Cheerful Stamp Pad wants to see silhouettes. Here’s a fairy silhouette card featuring 3 flowers and 3 colours of Distress ink (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Broken China):


I decided to create a matching envelope:

Thanks for looking!

B&W Mail Art

Here’s the decorated envelope that will hold my “Wise words” ATCs destined to this month’s The Stamp Man’s ATC swap:



I guess it isn’t hard to recognise the quotes I used… they are all Tim Holtz and I adore every single one of them.

This is my entry for this week’s Theme Thursday challenge: B&W.

Decorated envelope

I’m participating in an autumn swap at the ATCsforAll-forum and I decided to decorate the envelope in which I’ll send my ATCs.

I kept it very simple, for I think the beauty of the leaves (Clear stamps by Clear Choice) and the autumn colours (ColorBox Petal Points fluid chalks) speaks for itself.

I’d like to enter this to the Sunday Stampers “Autumn” challenge.

Inside the envelope there will be 3 ATCs like this and one extra ATC.


Three muses wants to see numbers incorporated in our creations. I’d like to enter this mail art envelope.

What‚Äôs On Your Workdesk? Wednesday

This is how I left my “workdesk formerly known as a dining table” on Tuesday evening… The usual bits and bobs.

Update: Someone asked me about the jar in the background. It’s a bottle of salad dressing filled with bleach! ūüėČ

My latest project is a mail art envelope that I’d like to enter to the ¬†“Sunday Stampers” challenge “Do you want to know a secret”.

Now over to Stamping Ground for more workdesks!

Yellow-Orange Mail Art

Both The Three Muses and “One Powerful Hour” set “Mail Art” or “Envelope Art” as a theme for their challenge. ¬†I wanted to send some ATCs to the UK for the “wings” swap hosted by the Stamp Man, so I decided to create a matching mail art envelope in my favourite colours for the moment: yellow, orange, rusty hinge and brown. Therefore, I also would like to submit this entry to the¬†Rainbow Lady’s “Oranges and Lemons” challenge.

It’s a pity that I don’t have an elegant handwriting… And the Address was way too long to fit in such a small space.

Anyway, I wouldn’t exactly¬†call this art, but I guess it’s always a nice surprise to receive a decorated envelope like that.

Stamps used

I’ve got mail!

I’m soooooooo excited! In my mailbox today, I found this extraordinary mail art envelope by Miss Inkurable Stampers Sarah Schwerin. And of course, ¬†there was even more exciting stuff to be found inside this beautifully decorated envelope!

You’re dying to know what was inside, aren’t you? Can’t blame you!

Well, I received three beautiful ATCs: two of them with a royal touch (you can admire them here) and one very cool steampunk ATC (on display here).

It’s always amazing how these miniature works of art look even more beautiful in real life than on scan… ¬†Thanks Sarah!
