The Pink Envelope

Inside The Envelope

About Me

I have the great pleasure of being a stay at home Mom of two full time girlies as well as 2 part-time boys. We are a full house when we get the rare chance for all of us to be together. Imagine, The Brady Bunch as an 80's hair band and that would come pretty close to describing my family. We currently have one fur baby named Ginger. True to feline nature, she wears the pants in the family, but occasionally let's us believe we are in control. We live in Montana and when I can be torn from the Mom Cave (a.k.a. my craft room) we spend loads of time outdoors. We LOVE riding our wave runners at the lake in the summer and riding our snowmobiles in the winter. 

Silly, kindness and a mild case of the crazies are main ingredients in our home.

I am truly inspired by everything around me. I love blogging about my creations and I enjoy sharing what I make with the fabulous crafting community. My hope is, if I can share my same passion and pass along that inspiration, then I've been successful. I am not perfect in my craft, I'm just passionate. I have a lot to learn and I love that I belong to such a large and amazing community to share in my journey.

Why The Pink Envelope?

Pretty simple. Someone once told me that if you mail a package in a bright colored envelope, it's less likely to get lost in the mail. I had forgotten about that until I mailed a couple of cards and they BOTH got lost! Then I remembered! Hot pink is my favorite color, so it was a no brainer. Since then I mail ALL of my cards in hot pink envelopes and none of them have been lost. Also, my recipients know when they see that envelope in their mailbox, they've received a card from me. Bonus! Woot!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely

Hey folks!

It's been soo long since I've been able to share a card with you all and I'm so happy to be back! Now I know folks are busy sharing their Christmas creations and I may have one or two before Christmas, but I gotta be honest peeps, I'm just happy to be coloring again.

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.


Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.

Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
