poppystamps Potpourri Flower, Freestyle Smile, Whittle Snail Card…

You’ve got mail!  It’s always so fun to get mail! Here’s mail and a smile from this cute blushing snail! lol 

I die cut the NEW Potpourri Flower Set in white and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I didn’t look at any pictures for coloring…flying by the seat of my pants again! haha

I layered the NEW ps Penelope Pinpoint Frame on top of Taylored Expressions Lemon Meringue cardstock A2 size panel.  Then I adhered those two, to a purple from the Memory Box Twilight Purple 6×6 cardstock pad. 

First I laid the flowers out down the left side of the panel from the top.  Took a picture of them with my phone and put the snail down to see how it looked, it was too close to the right side of the card!  I didn’t like it there!  So I picked the flowers up with a piece of press and seal and reversed them to the right side bottom corner instead.  Much better! 

Then I die cut the NEW ps Freestyle Smile all in white, it was ok, so I die cut the top in black, too bold, so I die cut it in purple, nah, so I die cut it in yellow and that was it!  I’m a terrible decision maker! lol 

The sentiment is from ps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments stamp set.  Stamped in the MISTI with versamark ink and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.

I glued the flowers down, then the snail and sentiments with mounting tape.  Then I pulled up a couple of the flowers to put one on her head and one right close to the body. 

I added yellow Fairy Gems last. 

I forgot to talk about the snail!  It’s die cut in kraft cardstock and edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.  I went over the mouth, eyes and added eyelashes with a micro black fine point pen. 

It’s a bright card and more fun in real life.  I like it!  That’s saying a lot of me cuz I don’t love yellow and purple! lol

It’s a rainy, dreary day here so we need bright!  Have a good one anyway!  ttul!

  1. I’m impressed with your ability to mix and match! Sometimes when I do, I feel that I over-did, but your cards are always perfect! Beautifully done, Pam, as always!!!

  2. Adorable! I love the sweet snail (tho not real ones), and the scene is pretty. Great flowers and the coverplate is awesome

  3. The way you put everything together here is just so dang cute! I love the background and the snail… those eyes… and the flowers are super pretty the way you colored them. What awesome snail mail this is!
