A Little Snail Mail | Pawsome Stamps Instagram Hop!


Hi there!

Today our Pawsome Stamps team is doing an Instagram Hop to celebrate the new release!   Be sure to head over and follow along!  My Instagram:  @Jean.StudioJD

How adorable are these cute little snails delivering “snail mail”?!?!?!

For this card:

  1. Stamp your images in Copic-friendly ink, color them with Copic Markers, and die cut them.
  2. Die cut 3 windows in your card panel.
  3. Arrange your pieces on your panel to determine where you want the sentiment, then stamp your sentiment.
  4. Place acetate behind each window.
  5. Surround each window (on the backside) with foam tape to create small wells for your shaker material.  Make sure each well is completely enclosed on the edges so no shaker material can fall out.
  6. Add foam to the rest of the panel (backside).
  7. Ink-blend color on your card base behind where the windows will be.
  8. Place a small mound of shaker material in each well.
  9. Place your card base over the panel with the shakers.  I use my MISTI or my Scor-Buddy to align everything.
  10. Place your die-cut images on your card front – use liquid glue for the background pieces, and then some foam adhesive to pop up the snails.

I hope you’ll have a few minutes today to check out the other designs on the Instagram Hop!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
