https://www.youtube.com/embed/QppMdndfcoA Hi everyone. Kristina here. Today I have another mail art video for you. I’m going to be using this stamp set called Wishing You from WPlus9 to decorate an envelope that I will be sending to my friend Nichol. Because I am going to be doing a lot of painting and water coloring on this envelope. I’m using some watercolor paper to create the envelope.This is Canson 90 lbs. watercolor paper. I’m using this particular weight of paper because it’s not too thick. I’ve tried to make a watercolor envelope in the past with regular watercolor paper that was thicker and it was sort of hard to score the paper and it just didn’t work out as well. The painting was great but it wasn’t great for creating an envelope. So I’m using an 8×8 piece of watercolor paper to create an A2 card. I just slide that into…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/b08W3hB1WuM – Hi everyone, Kristina here. Welcome to another card video at my YouTube channel on blog. Or it’s not a card video. I should correct myself: It’s actually a mail art video today. I’m going to be using a stamp set from Concord & 9th. This is their collaboration, limited quantity set for Stamptember. So, with these stamp sets, there’s a small amount of them, and you have to buy them now or it’s gone, and they will never come back again. That’s how these limited quantity, limited edition stamps for Stamptember work. So, if you love the stamps set I use in today’s video, you might want to grab ’em while you can. And speaking of those stamps, I actually did another video that’s over on the Simon Says Stamp YouTube channel. I have that linked up above if you want to check it out. In that video,…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/34jRhtwocYM – [Kristina] Hi everyone, Kristina here. Welcome to another video for a Simon Says Stamp. This is another Monthly Mail Art video, so I’m gonna be showing you how you can kind of jazz up this plain black envelope and make it a little bit more special. So I’m actually going to be cutting a heart window in this envelope, and the idea came from a card that I made last week for a Simon blog hop, where I cut that heart over on the front of the card, you can see it over there on the side. I thought it’d be kind of fun to mimic that same idea and cut a heart window out of this black envelope from Simon.So what I’m doing is I’m placing the die inside the envelope with a piece of post-it tape on there so once it’s in place, it’ll stay there.…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/BLtQL4ssj00 – Hello, everyone. Kristina here. I have another fun Mail Art envelope for you guys today. This one is completely DIY, easy watercolor. It’s gonna be so simple and very approachable, and you could actually adapt this idea for many cards as well, and I’ll talk a little bit about that later. So today I’ve already prepped some watercolor paper. I’m using some watercolor paper from Canson. This is a 90-pound watercolor paper. And I like to use a little bit of a thinner watercolor paper when creating envelopes, because it’s easier to fold. Because of that, it’s not quite as thick. It can’t take a lot of color all at once. So I’m going to be painting this kind of rainbow pattern one time completely, and then I’m gonna go over it again to intensify some of the colors. So previous to where you’re seeing this video, I…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/s-EK3tOe1I0 – Hi, everyone, Kristina here. Welcome to another Letter Tuesday video here at my blog and YouTube channel. Starting out with some watercolor paper. This is 90 pound watercolor paper from Canson and I’m using this watercolor paper in particular because I’m going to be creating an envelope so I don’t want it to be too thick. So I’m using this punch board from We R Memory Keepers and for an envelope to be an A-2 sized envelope so an A-2 sized card would fit inside, it needs to be cut at one and one quarter square. So I’ve cut the watercolor paper and I’ve placed it in my punch board and I’ve lined up that left edge at the three and five eighths mark and then using the I think they’ve labeled it A, the score line over on the right.I’m using the scoring tool that they have…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/REgALMkxCJ0 – [Kristina] Hi everyone, Kristina here. Welcome to another video at my YouTube channel and blog. Today I’m resurrecting that card you can see on screen and I’ll have a link up too in the top corner of this video if you wanna see how that card was made. I’m going to be creating an envelope for this card. I’m going to address it using some calligraphy and I’m also going to do another envelope as well. But I’ll talk about that when we get there. So this envelope is actually a metallic bronze envelope from Simon Says Stamp and I’m going to be using some Dr.Ph. Martin’s Pen White to address this envelope to my friend Jessica. When you use Penn White ink with a calligraphy pen or a nib or anything like that you do want to dilute it just a little bit. This ink tends to…
