Video: Postage Stamp Inspired Card

by Janette Kausen August 26, 2019 19 Comments

Hello and welcome to the Hero Arts blog! It's Janette Kausen here with you today and I am sharing a fun postage stamp inspired project with a video tutorial! The postage stamp I drew my inspiration from is included in the Stamped Just For You clear stamp set featured in this project. I also jazzed up an envelope to coordinate.

 View the video below for the details on how I created today's projects.

If you have any trouble viewing this video, please try watching it HERE in HD on YouTube.

Create project by layering a Dove White card base with a larger Dove White Infinity Postage Stamp die cut popped up with dimensional adhesive. Adhere a rectangle, just slight smaller, flat.

Die cut LOVE minus the O with the Luggage Tag Alphabet into a smaller Postage Stamp die cut. Then ink blend a panel to place behind with Dandelion, Deep Ocean and Orchid inks. Stamp sentiment in Intens-ified Black ink and then pop panel onto blended background with dimensional adhesive.

Die cut a small Infinity Heart from Azalea cardstock and adhere in place with dimensional adhesive. Color heart with a clear sparkle marker and then coat liberally with a Crystal Clear Lacquer pen for a glossy finish. Allow to dry overnight. 

Ink blend a matching envelope with Crimson ink, as well as the three prior inks, Dandelion, Deep Ocean and Orchid. Create an address line by using Post-It Tape as a mask. Stamp a few fun elements onto the envelope with the same Stamped Just For You set. The postage style stamp in the upper right corner is what inspired this project!

Thank you for joining me today. Remember, if you're creating with Hero Arts tag us on social media. We'd love to know what you're up to!

What a lovely quick and simple card. I love the matching colour band on the envie front and flap. I also like that your video instructions a short and concise. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a fun card and love the matching envelope. You’re right, you take the time to make a great card, why not do a little something on the envelope.

Just a really cute card and I love the way you colored the envelope! I’m with you, I do not have the kind of handwriting to do a fancy lettering job, so coloring has to do.
