Snail Mail...

I broke into another stamp set from My Cute Stamps. I can't resist the cute snails and this cute little bugger is so adorable! I combined some fun elements for my Snail Mail theme: My Cute Stamps snail with paper pieced shell, My Cute Stamps branch with paper pieced leaves, Snail Mail and tiny envelope from Papertrey's Mailbox Greetings and one of my button embellishments from my stash. Aqua Mist polka dot paper from Papertrey, green patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket. Images were colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed with Spellbinders Rectangle Nesties Die and then layered onto Papertrey Melon Berry cardstock layer cut with Spellbinder's Scalloped Rectangle Nesties Die. For the leaves, I cut out my entire stamped image and then paper pieced the leaves and adhered them so that they hung over the edges.

Are you sending out those cards you make? Don't just let them sit all pretty in a basket...mail them out to the special people in your life!! It will make someone's day.

I was just thinking today that I would like to get a "snail mail" sentiment... I might have to put that PTI set on my wish list. Although I know you've used other stamps with that sentiment. Were they Amuse??

I love the way you are using your little button embellishments on your cute cards! After seeing your previous post, I put together a bunch of those cuttlebug flowers with ribbons and buttons -- and have been going to town with them myself! Thanks for the inspiration, Mish!

Mish (I feel it's okay to call you Mish as I have been following your blog and leaving comments for so long that we are cyber-friends), everything you make is SUPER ADORABLE. This cute little snail card is no exception. Fact is: I've not seen a single creation of yours that I didn't like/love and use for inspiration.

Thanks for sharing,
