So Much Snail Cuteness!

So Much Snail Cuteness!



Happy Friday everyone! Cathy here sharing a card today featuring the adorable new Holiday Snail stamp set! This snail is just the cutest ever and these stamps are PERFECT for all of you out there who get behind on Christmas cards and mail yours after New Year's. You know who you are... 

 All of the sentiments in this set are separate so you can leave the belated off and deliver on time too!


First, I stamped the snail and masked the image before inking the background with Spun Sugar distress ink. I then inked a holiday sweater stencil with Worn Lipstick distress ink.

Before I colored the snail, I stamped each sentiment in Peacock Feathers distress ink and again in Versamark ink and heat embossed each with clear embossing powder for a little shine. I like to do this step first before coloring an image just in case I make a mess with the embossing powder or stamp a sentiment crooked, etc.


I added a few die-cut snowflakes that I heat embossed with pink sherbet Wow! embossing powder for some extra sparkle and shine.

Hope you have a fabulous crafty weekend! See you again soon!
