I'm Not Dull!!!!! Check out the Evidence ;-)


Hi Everyone, it is Helen on the DT here and it is my turn to share an idea or two with you this rainy Sunday (perfect crafting weather!!)

I am using some gorgeous and brand new stamps from the lovely Bibi today and I know you are going to love them.  They are Envelope Stamps and are perfect for putting the finishing touches to all your crafting mail.  If you love taking part in swaps or pocket letters then these are must have stamps to add to your collection!

My tutorial today is more of a look what you could be doing and an ideas tutorial rather than a detailed step by step.  I was inspired by one of the many, many stamps in this set that says 'Only dull people send dull envelopes'!  Challenge laid down and accepted Bibi…………


I started out on my crafting journey thinking just envelopes and then things took on a life of their own as you will see.  One envelope became a pretty set of three……


I even created one to send to Australia!!!  You have to watch the video to know more ;-)


Once I had three pretty and definitely not dull envelopes I decided to create matching note cards.  I kept it simple and just took a few elements from the envelopes to make the note cards.


I hope my tutorial inspires you to get busy creating fabulous envelopes ready for the next time you want to swap snail mail with your crafting friends.  Check out the brand new stamps from Rubber Dance over here!


As you can see from the video you could turn them into a lovely gift too.  Just add note cards and a pretty ribbon.


I hope I have inspired you to create fabulous envelopes and to get inky with your Rubber Dance Stamps.  Have fun!

Hugs

Helen
