Really slow hand-decorated envelope

Envelope with stamps and embellishments

I call this one slow because I took a long time with it. I used colored pencils and Stickles glitter glue on the address frame rubber stamp. I'm quite pleased with how this one turned out! To see all the glitter glue dots, it's best viewed large.

I wish I knew a way to optimize photographing glittery things. The light never seems right, but if it's in direct sunlight, it's just too too bright. I'll have to experiment more, I suppose...

The "Letters Preserve Memories" stamps are among my favorites, by the way.


  1. I love the red glittery thumbnail in the from rubber stamp. Where did you get those rubberstamps? They're lovely.

  2. Thank much, Erin. I admit I thought the red glitter thumbnail was rather clever myself. :-) Thanks for noticing.

    The bird frame stamp came from eBay, and the hand holding card came from the bricks-and-mortar store of Victorian Trading Co.
