This is gonna be an INSANE post full of samples.. full of inspiration.. so might I suggest a hot beverage? (said like Sheldon on Big Bang Theory)
Today’s sneak peek is a new concept to Stamping Bella… I have called it the “MISTER POSTIE” line… I LOVE snail mail. I LOVE receiving packages and goodies and letters in the mail. Sometimes I order things JUST to get a package in the mail that I can tear open like these chicks open a gift (I am the one in the middle box with feet sticking out) (did I just say that out loud?)
I also love sitting down and creating goodies for my friends.. whether it be a POCKET LETTER .. a little package sent.. a note etc. I must admit I am so guilty of WANTING to do this more often and not DOING. SO I have made a vow to try to do it more often…. and now not only is it fun to decorate what you are sending on the INSIDE of the letter… but what if I told you I had stamps to decorate the OUTSIDE of the letter… the envelope! Why should the fun end when the envelope or box is sealed? In all honesty you can can decorate your envelope with ANY of our stamps.. but I made little cute ones to make it even MORE fun..
Here is our UPTOWN SEAL OF APPROVAL set from the MISTER POSTIE line..
I couldn’t resist making some samples to show you what I mean!
Here I decorated a manila shipping envelope with this stamp set.. had SO much fun. Colored them in directly with my Prismacolor pencils (pencils POP on manila and KRAFT).. used some washi tape.. and stamped randomly. I could have gone a little crazier but I had to control myself
Here I used just the Uptown “seal”, punched with a 1.25″ circle punch and placed it on the back of the envelope with some washi just for an extra “touch” (coloured quickly with copics)
And here I decided to make a little 4*4 card using our little uptown seal.. so sweet for a set of little “notelets” (i love that word-not sure it really exists or not LOL)..I am so inspired by our very own AliceWERTZabella on how she layers her papers.. i’m testing out the waters.. will take me a while!
In the first DO NOT BEND sample I just wanted to show you how you can create movement/design with the stamps and for the second sample I created my own background for with the Happy Mail stamp.. ready to put the address over it!
The options are ENDLESS with this little set! Stay tuned for more fun I LOVE THESE!
Now for our next sneak peek we have TINY TOWNIE PENELOPE has a PENCIL
Still on the same theme of snail mail… you can stamp her right on your envelopes.. SHE IS EDIBLE… Or you can make gorgeous cards with her like our AMAZING Design team has!
Here is SHELABELLA’s card
Here is STEPHABELLA’s card
And here’s TRACYBELLA’s card
Are these NOT AMAZING!!???
And now for the final sneak peek.. going along with the same theme, we have TINY TOWNIE ANABELLE needs your ADDRESS
My initial vision for Anabelle was to use her for your card envelopes, packaging, letters, gift tags.. and place the address in the box
(since I do not have this stamp yet, I used Elaineabella’s coloured images for my samples.. you just wait until I have this baby in my possession! I CANNOT WAIT)
Here I used a 9*12 Manila shipping envelope.. used Anabelle for the address and there are a few “extra” stamps you will be “meeting ” tomorrow or Sunday. I had SO much fun decorating this YOU HAVE NO IDEAR…!
Here I used a small shipping envelope and didn’t do any decorating.. just stamped and cut her out and colored her with pencils.. again.. nothing fancy.. just wanted you to see how to use her!
And FINALLY, I said to myself “SELF”.. why does she ONLY have to be on packages and envelopes? SO I answered myself and said “SELF”… she doesn’t!
So I whipped this little card up to show you how you can put a sentiment in her bubble and make a cute little card! I used the sentiment from UPTOWN GIRL TIFFANY LOVES TO TEXT.. there are 3 amazing hashtag sentiments in that set!
Next I am going to try to use her as a bookplate with my info and as an intro on the first page of my journals with a message for anyone who may read it or find it :).. She is SO VERSATILE!
Soooo? whaddya think? Ya think you would have fun decorating and sending some mail to some lucky sistahs?
