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.

Product List


  1. Ann Marie, your card is adorable. I loved the way you used the sketch and your detail to the inside of your card. The colors are so bright and happy. That little snail always gets my attention.

  2. This is so cute, Anne Marie! I love the Bermuda Bay paired with red. It's a great retro combination. This little snail is a cutie patootie!

  3. Such a fun card. Every time I see that snail it makes me smile. Can't wait to get that set.

  4. This is adorable, love the colors!

  5. Adorable, Anne Marie. This sketch is perfect for the elements from Snailed It and your card really helps to showcase how fabulous this set is. Thanks for making me smile with this card

  6. Oh my gosh, this is just the cutest! My upline just sent me a card with this snail and it's just as cute IRL! Love the fresh fun colors you used, inside and out!

  7. Another great card using this fun snail set and paper! Your goal is very similar to mine once I reorganize and package every stamp and die cut I own. Yes, you heard me right. That is what I decided to do last week. What was I thinking? You are making it really hard to resist adding more paper to my stash. Have a great week!

  8. Great way to use some of the DSP! And you definitely don't need to do a lot of stamping when the DSP is this cute!! Love the little heart on the envelope too! Have a great week!

  9. This is one of my favourite suites in the catalogue Anne Marie and as a fellow DSP lover, I might CASE your card to use up more of mine too! I almost went with this set for my card, but was so inspired by your previous berry cards I went down that route instead! Great job this week!

  10. How cute is this!! I love the patterned paper too!

  11. Anne Marie, this is so adorable! BB and RR are my favorite color combo! SMILE! Love the patterned paper, too! I hope you have a marvelous weekend, My Friend!
