gettin my embell-ope on!

hey there!
i made this card/envelope last week with two challenges in mind...and then forgot to take picturs and blog about it, until today! lol! oops! that hasn't happened to me in a while! ha ha!! i missed one of the challenges, but the challenge at a blog named hero is still open (barely! ha ha!)! the challenge is all about decorating the envelope! i think that is such a NEAT idea!! i love it! and it's something that i never do. so i was excited to actually do it! :)

i used two hero arts stamps - the main city image is from the silly scape wood block (still one my all time favorite stamps!!) and the sentiment is from everyday sayings, which is such an awesome set! perfect for literally, any occasion! :)

well, here they are:

i made the card first, and it was a blast to coordinate the envelope!

i stamped, fussy cut and popped up the city scene. then i added some glossy accents to a few windows, roofs, etc for a little added interest! 

the background was created by blending two distress inks to make the prettiest sunset ever! lol!

for the envelope, i stamped the city scene, and then masked it off so i could splatter some pink and gold! 

to finish it off, i added the tiniest bit of glitter my wink of stella glitter pen to the city windows, etc (just like the i did with the glossy accents on the card). 

so that's it! like i said, super fun, and totally out of my comfort zone! :) 


  1. LOVE this're making me want to go shopping! I love the idea of decorating the envie too. I must do this more often :)

  2. Loooove how you decorated the envelope! And that stamp looks great in black and white over a colorful background! Great idea! Thanks for playing along at A Blog Named Hero!
