Just added some stamping on top!

Gelli Print Postcards

I love my gelli plate! I made the background for these postcards with it. It's so fun and you just keep going and going and you have so much made in just a little bit of time. So fun playing. I then heat embossed some Tim Holtz stamps on top! Sent one to Russia and the other to Germany.

Here are a couple postcards I recently made to send off as mail art. I painted the background then added several postcard themed stamps. I heat embossed the orange hot air balloon. Not liking the orange color embossing powder I used... but do like the background on that one better.

Mail Art Envelopes

My newest thing is mail art! 

I signed up over at and received some mail art via snail mail right away.

These are what I have created to send off to those that I have already received from. They are my very first two mail art pieces I have ever made.  So much fun to do. The inspiration for these envelopes came from Renee Stein on youtube

Lots more mail art postings to come, as I already have several more envelopes and postcards in the works!
Send me an email or leave me your address in a comment if you also enjoy sending and receiving hand made mail art. We can mail to each other!

Altered containers

These started off as just plain whitish plastic containers with black handles. 

They were decorated for gifts for 3 little girls each in their favorite color with their names.

 Inside they will store all their pretty hair bows!

Lace, flowers, a couple strings of pearls, a strip of decorative paper and alcohol ink were used on each one.
