Snails2Mail


You know today is the first of the month and that means new release over at The {Stamps} of Life?  This Snails2mail set is darling and so many possibilities in using it.  My favorite was to paper piece the snail shell.

My first card I kept pretty simple using some patterned paper to contrast the paper piecing on the shell.


Card details:
Stamps: Snails2mail from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Real Red, Fancy Pants Trendsetter
Embellishments: dimensionals

I love the itty bitty snail in this set and so I used it to create a background piece separated by the wavy border die.

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo
Embellishments: Bo Bunny jewels, Wavy Border die from The {Stamps} of Life


On this card I first sprayed my piece of Whisper White with the Artichoke spray from Stephanie Barnard and then again paper pieced my snail shell with some patterned paper.
