This new stamp set makes designing envelopes easy! I have several examples to share, using elements from the new stamp set, along with a few other Altenew favorites.

Altenew EnvelopeArt LaurieWillison19You don't need a MISTI to use this stamp set, but it makes it easier to line up the images and even stamp several envelopes in one stamping session.

Altenew EnvelopeArt LaurieWillison18There are 2 main banners, curved and straight, that make the perfect address panel. Envelope Art also has lots of sentiments that work well on the front of the envelope or even on a card.


Altenew EnvelopeArt LaurieWillison1To create this first envelope, I made a mask with the banners and added the mask to the card front. The Flowing Drops Stencil made the perfect tone-on-tone background. Using the banner stamps, I went in last and added the details in black ink.


Altenew EnvelopeArt LaurieWillison13On this next envelope, I used the World Map Stamp Set in Evening Gray Ink and then added the straight banners over the top. I love the modern look this gives the envelope but still keeps it simple.

To create this look, I made a mask using the banners and added it to the yellow envelope. I used the Classy Stripes Stencil to blend in the Snapdragon Ink. I used the large blooms from Wallpaper Art Stamp Set to add in the flowers.  To finish it off, I went back in and stamped the banner detail. It looks like it might be complicated to create this look but it was so easy!

Envelope Art Stamp Set comes with a really pretty floral image that works well on the back of your envelope. I decided to create an address space using this image. I stamped them along with a “special delivery for” sentiment all in Obsidian Pigment Ink for a simple look.

This envelope was super easy to make.  I stamped the banners in white ink and then masked off the center section. I used the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set to add details around the masked lines.

Here is one last card made with Bubble Wrap Stencil after masking off the address banner. I love the look of the Morning Frost Ink in polka dots!

Altenew EnvelopeArt LaurieWillison17I hope you have enjoyed these DIY envelopes featuring the Envelope Art Stamp Set. This new stamp set provides such a fun way to add “happy” to your happy mail!

These are beautiful, Laurie. I never take the time to decorate envelopes, but what a difference it makes. I regret not ordering this stamp set now, when I submitted my order, lol. Next time ;-P

Beautiful envelopes. This set would make it easy to decorate if I didn’t decorate one when I made the card.

I love all these envelopes. I really like how versatile this stamp set is, that you can create as many lines as you want, and add the ribbon or leave it off. And the sayings are amazing too! I was just thinking I needed a stamp set to jazz up my envelopes!
