Wendy Vecchi Make Art Doodle Stamps Note Card and Envelopes Set

Hi everyone!!! Wendy Vecchi has just come out with the three cutest sets of Doodle Stamps from Ranger. She has been drawing these cute little images for awhile now and even teaching people to do it, so she thought she would just come out with stamps of the images so people don't have to draw them. Perfect! I made a set of note cards and envelopes with all the stamps. Since I have a bunch of blank colored note cards and envelopes that I rarely use, I thought using Wendy's new Doodle Stamps on them would be perfect and fun too, plus I can't remember the last time that I didn't create a background on a card, so using the premade cards just freed me up to Doodle! These stamps are so stinking fun and take me back to the days of talking on the kitchen wall phone with the stretched out 10 foot cord while 'doodling' all over the back of the extra thick phone book. How I wish I would have saved the backs of all those phone books. Anyway, these stamps make it easy to just have fun and not over think anything or any set type of's fun to just stamp and color in. And speaking of coloring in, I literally did just that, with markers, and I can't remember the last time I did that either. I got so lost in the coloring that I barely remember doing it. Even though these cards are super simple looking, maybe even too clean compared to what I usually do, it was so great to just go back to basics...stamp and color in. AND...these were super fast to make. Now I have a set to use or give away. Enjoy!

I used three orange and three pink colored note cards. I die cut six Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper with the largest of the Sized Ovals Movers and Shapers from Tim Holtz and Sizzix for the stamping, and saved one of the negatives to help me stamp in the next part. I die cut six of second largest oval from the Stitched Ovals Thinlits to mount behind the SSP, using black cardstock. 

I placed the negative from the die cutting to use in the platform to help hold my oval in place. I stamped the images from the Celebration set in the oval and made a few masks with Sticky Note for the images that will overlap. I used this set twice, stamping the balloons and cake vertically and presents horizontally, all using Black Soot Archival. I also stamped six of the hearts and cut those out to use later. 
I did the same here using the Doodle Town Set, except I didn't have to do any masks as all the images were spaced out. I also used Mulberry Archival for the hearts and English Ivy for the plants.  One goes vertically and one horizontally again, and the same with the next set.

No masks for this set (Floral Doodle) and no other inks besides Black Soot. 
I used a permanent fine black Pitt Pen from Faber-Castell to add more doodles, like the borders on all six ovals. I also added a few circles and stripes to some of the images. Doodling is fun! I didn't like the stark background (go figure) so I used the Mini Stay-tion and ruler it comes with to add lines of white and black pen, vertically for the vertical ovals and horizontal for the horizontal ovals. 

I colored in all the images with more Pitt Pens. They are permanent.  I had forgotten how much I love to color with markers. Super fun! I mounted the ovals to the black Stitched Ovals with two sided tape, and then mounted those to the card fronts. 

I colored in the hearts and cut them out. I used a black marker to color the white edging from the hearts as I didn't like the white showing. I added to the hearts to the lower right side of each card. I stamped matching Doodles to each envelope for it's card, and colored those in with the markers as well. I added a few white details on some of the images, like a shine mark on each heart and outlining some of the dots on the presents.
