Count Down to the New Year... Mail Art Monday

Hello World!!!
Welcome Back for another fun Mail Art Monday!!! 

Today I went with a Vintage/Victorian style...
I feel like these have a fun New Years vibe, especially with the clock! 

Stamps Used for these envelopes:

Pen Tips 2 3/4 x 2

To create these fun envelopes I stamped my main images and masked them off. I then stamped all of my background images. I used Tim Holtz distress ink in weathered wood for the background. Before removing the masks I also added a few flicks of black dylusions ink for added texture. 

After removing the masks, I used my zig clean color markers to color a bit of visual interest. 

Happy New Years to you all!!

Holiday Door Hanger

Hello Again! 

Today I want to share a cute holiday door hanger I created for this weeks 

Stampotique Originals Designers Challenge 

Naughty or Nice

I wanted to create something fun that could double as a cute holiday decoration, so I decided to make a fun and easy door hanger ...
(Which I may have to share with my niece!)

To create this I stamped "Newton" on a piece of white card stock with memento ink in tuxedo black. I then used a variety of alcohol based markers to color him. I then cut him out and trace around his head with a pencil so that I could draw a Santa hat with a black marker (then colored and cut it out).

Next I created the little sign with a scrap of cardstock. 
(We want Santa to know we've been good this year, Right?!) 

To Finish Newton I glued on his hat and the sign in his hands. 

The base was created by cutting some polka dot scrap book paper, and a 2nd piece of black card stock to add a sturdier base. To create the hole for the door knob, I traced around one of my glue bottles then hand cut it...
 (my circle cutter was hiding, which I of course found right after cutting this!!)

Anyhow, I hope you like this little piece of Holiday fun, and I hope it inspires you to get creative!! 

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
(also I will have a special holiday envelope video tutorial to share with you for Stampotique on the 14th, so be sure to stop back!!)
