Snailed It! + Giveaway!

Hi, friends! I’ve been having so much fun playing with the Essentials by Ellen Snailed It! stamps and matching dies! They’re just so cuuuuute! And the sentiments are just the best you all — I’ve been going around saying “snailed it” for days! (and giggling each time I say it :)

Check it out:

You can make some clean and simple cards with these in no time flat!

When making CAS cards I like to add those extra little details to really make them pop. So of course I had to bust out my tan woodgrain cardstock to make the cards — I keep hoarding this paper but need to use it more! It’s so great for masculine cards. And it comes in white too — gotta get me some more of that, I’m almost out!

Then I had to add — WIGGLE EYES to the mushrooms! Ahhhhh I was laughing so much when I made these that J had to come and see what was going on! :) The funniest thing is that I was making this card for him! Ha!

I couldn’t resist adding some rose gold heart sequins to them too!

And then I had to add some super tiny wiggle eyes to Mr. Snail too! Also: new tool alert! My friend JULIE — who also designed these stamps — that girl is genius!!! — used this jewel picker in a video and it totally blew me away! I had to have one, stat. It works great — and it’s back in stock, at least for now! Best $5.09 craft tool EVER!! :)

Oh and you may notice that I did some fancy footwork on these cards when adhering the die cut pieces — some pieces I glued flat and others I used foam tape. And for some of the pieces I only put the glue on part of them like that leaf up there — that way I could curl part of it up!

Now how about a giveaway!

Woo hoo! I have a set of these fun stamps and matching dies to GIVEAWAY to one lucky random winner! Plus I’m adding in enough of the other supplies that I used so you can make 4 cards!

Here’s what you’ll get!

    Adorable stamps! Something that always makes me smile is when I see my little Boston Terrier outside in the spring chasing ants. Then when she captures them under her paw, she has no idea what to do with them It’s funny every time (to me at least)! Thanks for the chance to win!
