Snail Mail

 Hi peeps,

The Paper Players has their monthly color challenge this week. Ann is hostess and she has chosen Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight, and a neutral of our choice. 

These colors look pretty good together, but I really wasn't sure on how to use them. When that happens, I usually reach for one of my Concord & 9th turnabout stamps, which is what I've done this week. This one is called Postmarked Turnabout and I paired it with the C&9th Snail Mail set and corresponding dies. I'm loving how it turned out. Especially that cute little snail!

The neutral was supposed to be SU Crumb Cake, but I discovered that my Crumb Cake ink pad is dry! I don't have a re-inker for it so I used the C&9th Wheat stamp pad and card stock instead. They are very similar shades. The Snail Mail set has the large postage stamp shaped dies to cut out the large sentiments. I matted these with Blackberry Bliss card stock and added the uber cute snail image with Dimensionals.

For the inside of my card I've used more images from the Snail Mail stamp set with the large postage stamp die.

Wishing you a happy hump day, and rest of your week. Stay SAFE!

Thanks for looking in,
