Happy Mail and Pretty Mail Stamps for Envelopes

Hi Everybody,

I have a question for you... do you stamp or decorate your envelopes?  You should!  I know Kristina Werner makes some fabuloso decorated envelopes but for me, I'm taking baby steps lol.  I just wanted to share what I use.  

I like stamping on the flap of the envelope with a happy mail type stamp.  I have these two right now, bought from Simon Says Stamp.  You can get in some MAJOR trouble at that store, just sayin'.... :)

Check this out, how cute is this one??  I just bought this a week or so ago because it's so different. I bought this one from The Ton called Pretty Mail.

The other thing that I have and I love is an envelope liner die.  I bought this from Papertrey Ink.  I don't use it with every card but when I have time I'll put one in or if it's a super special card I will as well.  I just stick it down in the envelope and line the crease on it with the envelope crease and make sure it closes well and I put some tombo mono adhesive on the back and stick it down.  You can use any kind of adhesive.  I just use this one in case I get it crooked.  I've used Scor-Tape before and pressed it down crooked so learn from my mistakes grasshoppers. LOL!  I then will put a strip of Scor-Tape where you lick the envelope.  I also do this when I sell a card or am giving cards away because I think it looks good. 

Here are a few pictures of how I've used these stamps and the liner die in the past.  

Doesn't this add a classy touch to the card?  

(these next two go together)

Many people stamp flowers on the envelope.  I have this bunny from Stamping Bella but I haven't used him yet.  He's called Edward the Edgy Bunny 

Then I put a matching piece of washi tape across the back where it seals. :)

I hope I've inspired you to stamp or decorate on your envelopes. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Thank you for all of the nice comments. I thought I was doing good with stamping happy mail on the back and some of the ladies in the groups showed me what they do and holy cow... I need to step it up lol. I really appreciate all of your support. Verna, you get the award for commenting everyday. Do you only use Gina K stamps? I'm going to start having give a ways and I really want to send you something. <3

Dawn, I love the die for the envelope liner. It's only about $16 so it's wel worth it.

I use stamps from all sorts of companies and I have so many sets myself. I just got rid of three large boxes of wood mounted ones as I can no longer accommodate all my supplies. I gave them to people who wanted to get started stamping and I am assuming they would have room for them more then I and could give them some love. I seen to gravitate to my unmounted mostly. Sometimes we just have to let go and downsize.
