Hero Arts Rainbow Mail

by | Mar 13, 2019 | Backgrounds, Blog, Happy Thoughts, Hero Arts, Watercolor

Hiya, friends! Today, I have am sharing here and on the Hero Arts blog. They projects are very similar, but I just could not decide which I loved the most. I took a family pole and tied up we are! So, I’ve decided they are both worth it!

Handwritten notes are dying. Long gone are the days that children learn cursive in school. How to address and format letters is quickly glossed over. Given that, it makes those handwritten notes (cursive or not) and handmade cards just that much more special when they show up in the mailbox unexpectedly. Add a rainbow? Shazam! Someone is smiling! I’ll show you two ways to do just that!

Create this project by setting up the Mail Jumble cling into a MISTI stamp positioner. With a rainbow of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers color one envelope, on the stamp itself, at a time. Stamp onto an A2 smooth bristol panel. Each envelope took about three impressions for a complete image. I adore the watercolor look this method gives!

Stack and adhere 3 die cut Nesting Infinity Hearts with Precision Glue. Then adhere to center of watercolor panel. Stamp sentiment in black, trim and pop in place with dimensional adhesive into place. Be cautious with freshly stamped sentiments. Give them a moment to dry before trimming them. I didn’t and I have a touch of a smear… boo! Adhere finished panel to Dove White folded card base.

This is the similar project I am sharing over on the Hero Arts blog. You can find the details for it HERE.

My suggestion: before you even put all your supplies away, write a note inside the card. Address and seal it within a matching envelope, and mail it! So often we make these beauties and tuck them away for later… mail them! No better day than today to brighten a mood!

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today. Happy crafting and we’ll see you soon!

xo, Janette

P.S. Fun note: the Peek-A-Boo Doors die coordinates with Mail Jumble to create opening windows. You may even have it in your stash already being that it originally came out to coordinate with the Presents Background several months ago. You never know, the designers at Hero Arts may be dreaming up more coordinates for it too!
