Happy Mail Is The Best Mail Series (#6)


Hey y'all! Welcome back for my 6th installment of the #HappyMailIsTheBestMail series. Have you played along yet? (start here) If you have made any cards or written a letter inspired by my series, please tag them with #happymailisthebestmail on social media, I would love to see them!


Today I have two colorful, fun cards to share. To make it easy for you to create your own, I linked all the supplies underneath-just click to shop!

supplies: kraft paper card base, WRMK letterpress plates, yellow ink, Lawn Fawn stamp set, Distress Ink Markers, DNC embriodery floss

{Cheer Someone Up Day-July 11} that's today!
I was in a shop recently where they sold cards with a little charm attached. I loved that idea and brainstormed a way to do it for this series. When I was a teen I LOVED making friendship bracelets (did you ever do that?) I got really excited about making one for my niece Suzie (who is 14) and an idea was born! I had to refresh my memory and found this tutorial on making friendship bracelets. Recently I have been experimenting with letterpress cards for my shop, so I used these plates and stamped these flowers to match the colors of the bracelet. I used my exacto knife and a hole punch to add it to the card.


I am so in love with this card, I really want to make a few more to send out.



supplies: kraft paper card base, Mama Elephant stamps- Good Times and Pandamonium, Hero Arts Inks: pink, orange, yellow, teal, and Momento Black Ink

{Pandemonium Day-July 14}
A day dedicated to the chaos and unpredictability of life. From Wikipedia:
"Everyone has a day like this once in while. Its a day when all sort of unexpected things occur. Its a time when everything is happening at the same time, and at a very fast pace." 

Raise your hand if you have had a day like that? Just me?....ok....... For this little note card I pulled out some of my favorite all time stamps-I love those pandas! I also dusted off some of those ink colors I don't use. I tend to get in a rut, but this little card series has really inspired me to use some of the supplies I have been 'collecting' (ahem)




Thanks for stopping by! Go out and send some happy mail = )
