RaKoon Envelope

I am in a RAK (random act of kindness) group that sends lots of rak's and never ever saw any stamps to make my envelopes spiffy.  I ran across these at I Brake for Stamps and fell in love with them!  There's a couple different Rakoons (yes I meant to spell it that way hehe) and multiple sayings.  I think they make gettin Rak'd even more special!  I used an extra big envie for this one and sponged the edges in brown.  The little brackets are from some $1 set I picked up at Michael's a while back.  I thought they set off the return addy and mailing addy nicely.  I colored the racoon with chalks so get a soft look.  I did the mailbox and letter in prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits.  The little paw prints are from the Stampin Up "Canine Capers" (ret) set.  Hope you enjoy it-have a great day!

p.s. you can purchase the stamps here


  1. I LOVE IT!! I'm working on one when I saw your message come though!! Mine is going through the mail. I love envie art!!!

  2. Adorable and extremely clever. I'm off to purchase that set. You did good ;-)

  3. Sorry to bug ya. Is the Rakoon part of a sheet or a single stamp? I'm having trouble finding the cute little bugger.

  4. Hi Debby-I added a link to the half sheet at the bottom of my post... should have done that anyway!
