Mail Art with Gel Press and Art Foamies

I have a pretty good relationship with my mailman. He drops packages off about three times a week. Since I work from home I am usually at home and answer the door. He often will wait for me to answer and we will strike up a conversation. It was during one of these chats that he told me postal workers love to see envelopes decked out in art! Ever since I have been stamping, painting, and drawing on my envelopes.

One of my favorite techniques is using the gel press with paint and a Rita Barakat art foamie stamp. To keep a nice clean area for the address I use washi tape to mask off the spot to write. I use three strips of the standard size tape.

I created this particular envelope for a card I made that I will be sharing at the end of the month. So make sure you subscribe and don’t miss out! I am going to mail this to one of you with the card 😉

Here is how to create mail art . Make sure you check it out because it is a great tutorial!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

  1. Have always decorated my envelopes, but never really thought of all the people that would see them. Thank you so much for sharing and being so inspiring.

  2. great idea! I always do a little something on the back to coordinate with the card, but this is fabulous!
