Snailed It for PP525

Happy Sunday! 
Time for a new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, Joanne is hosting our monthly Sketch Challenge
Sketch Challenges are my FAVORITE! As soon as I saw Joanne’s sketch, I knew it would be great to showcase different patterns of Designer Series Paper. I’ve set a goal for myself this year to USE more DSP, instead of just “collecting” it in my stamp studio. Those pretty patterns need to be shared and enjoyed! You can always buy more, right? 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo: 
I’m absolutely smitten with the Snailed It stamp set and coordinating Snail Dies right now. I especially love that the dies cut out images from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper. Talk about making it easy! I added a couple of little embellishments and the card came together pretty easily. That little snail is SO cute, isn’t he? Eek! 
Card Measurements and Details: 
  • Real Red Card Base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (Bermuda Bay pattern): 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (mail and package pattern): 2-1/2” x 4-1/4” 
  • Real Red Cardstock: die cut 1-7/8” circle from Stitched Circles Dies
  • Snail Mail Designer Series Paper: die cut snail image using Snail Dies, accent the snail’s shell with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • Basic White Cardstock: 1-3/4” x 1/2”, stamp sentiment in Real Red ink and snip off right end at an angle
  • Resin Hearts Embellishments and Red Rhinestones
  • Basic White Cardstock (inside card): 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (inside card): 4” x 3/4” 
Finally a peek inside the card. I added a little strip of the letter / package pattern of DSP and a trio of stamped hearts colored with Stampin’ Blends. It’s all set for a handwritten note for a friend. 

I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share your project for our Sketch Challenge. We’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday January 29th, 2021

Friends are Like Seashells for Facebook Live

Hi y'all! Yesterday, I did a “On the Fly Friday" Facebook Live video and created a card using the new Friends are Like Seashells Bundle, which is available in the Stampin’ Up!® January-June Mini Catalog. 

Please join me over on on my *Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page*, where do Live videos sharing fun Stampin’ Up!® projects. My set time for Facebook Live is Friday at 4:00pm CST, however I have been trying to pop on more often. Be sure to “Like” and “Follow” my Facebook Page so you get the notifications. If you can’t make it Live, you can always watch the replay. Also, I’d like to invite you to join my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Group for more updates, promotions, upcoming classes and exclusive projects. Everyone is welcome!

*To check out the video for how this card was made, click here: Friends are Like Seashells Facebook LiveI’ve also listed the measurements and the supply list below!
This was my first time using the Friends are Like Seashells Bundle and now I’m hooked! I used quite a few of the products in this suite on my card, including the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set, Seaside Seashells Dies, Seashells 3D Embossing Folder, Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper and the beautiful Opal Rounds. I also used a soft color combo which paired with a couple of the colors in the Designer Series Paper.

Color Combo:
I just love how the dies and embossing folder work together. That really made it easy to add gorgeous texture to the card. I used sponge daubers to add ink to the seashells, which really brought out the textured detail. To add the pearlescent finish to the shells, I used Frost White Shimmer Paint. If you have never tried Shimmer Paint, I highly recommend it. There are two colors available from Stampin’ Up!®: Frost White and Champagne Mist.

I also shared another Facebook Live Video a while back with lots more ideas on how to use Shimmer Paints. It’s really fun! You can check it out here: Shimmer Paint Facebook Live

  • Use sponge daubers to color Basic White seashell images, two shells in Blushing Bride ink and three shells in So Saffron ink, cut shell images out of die cut
  • Add Frost White Shimmer Paint to die cut shells using a sponge dauber, sponge or paint brush and adhere shells to Soft Sea Foam Die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals
