Decorate an Envelope

Hi there, Gaby here with an idea you can use to pretty up any envelope!  I used Tombow markers for this and a Wink of Stella pen.

I put a piece of card-stock in the envelope to keep any ink from seeping through the paper.

I started by using the Meet The Jelly Friends stamp set and did some masking to group three of them together. I used pigment ink here so my stamped image would not bleed.

 

 Hey guys!

I did my coloring here by doing the back ground first and then coloring in each stamped image.

I added my Wink of Stella and then used my Monotwin to fill in the part of my sentiment that did not fully stamp.

Finally, I cleaned up my image and then covered it with MicroGlaze, that way when it goes through the mail it will be water resistant.

If you do use MicroGlaze, write the recipient's address and apply your postage first because the glaze is almost like a wax.  I had to glue on a stamp once because I forgot!

I used the Mono Sand Eraser to clean up pills before I applied the MicroGlaze.  That's all for today, I hope you make some amazing mail art! Happy crafting.

Hand Lettering is Amazing.

Hi there everyone.  I have been working hard on my hand lettering and was able to make a piece of framed wall art that says "But first, Coffee!".  I did this lettering on my iPad and then made a cut file that I sent to my Cricut as a "Print & Cut" file.  Once it was cut out, I added some stamped images and adhered the letters and put everything in a jazzy frame.

I will be making more of these and posting them in the shop; once I figure out how to upload cut files, I will have some free downloads for you too! That's all for today, but you can always check me out on IG by clicking on that slideshow on the right, happy crafting!

Product Close Up - Mr. Snugglekins - "I am a Meowfox."

Hi everyone, Gaby here with a close up of one of the new stamp sets from the debut launch, Mr. Snugglekins - "I am a Meowfox".  This little guy loves coffee, so he has a coffee cup in his stamp set, but he's a baby meowfox, so he cannot actually drink coffee, so odds are that cup is empty or filled with cocoa.  He also has a heart, hat, scarf, and some word bubbles with translations, since the only word he can say is "Meow".  Here he is in all of his Meowfoxy glory.

 He thinks you are a-meow-zing!

Check out the video below to see the entire stamp set and how to make this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I am so excited to be able to share this video series.  The next video in the series will feature a box card made with the Meet the Jelly Friends - My Jam! stamp set.  All of the stamp sets are available for pre-order in the shop. Until next time, happy crafting.

Gab with Gaby - I own a stamp company!

I am beyond excited, I am exhilarated! A few months ago I decided to start my own stamp company, and today, those stamps go live! I have 4 sets for my first launch. These are all my original characters and artwork; these characters have lived in my head and inside of sketchbooks for a few years now and it is indescribable to see them as stamps. I am so proud to finally show them to you all; it was a huge amount of work to bring these to life and it was worth every minute.  I love stamping and card making so much that this just seemed like a natural progression.  This will mark year one of Gab with Gaby stamps and products (that's right, I will be announcing more items in my shop soon).  Thank you all so much for visiting this creative corner of the web.  

Ok, now on to the stamps!  This is each stamp set and a brief description.  

 These are the Jelly Friends, in their first stamp set -"My JAM!" This set will let you wish someone a Happy Birthday or tell them they're your jam.
