oct 2017 release collage

Hey, welcome, y’all! :)  Today’s the big day and the October Essentials by Ellen release is now available!

Today, I’m sharing a project using my new “Snailed It” stamp set (Snailed it Die Set):

Snailed it-004-je


This is a super easy peek-a-boo card, made by simply hiding the snail behind two die cut leaves that are secured to the card with a mini-brad–just pivot the leaves to reveal her bidding you a friendly hello! :)

Yes, I squealed after making this and bounced off my chair. *big cheesey grin*

I really love how shading directly on the solid images with the Avery Elle pigment inks looks! Stamping the leaves onto a lighter green card stock makes a great two-tone effect, too.

That little scallop border beneath the sentiment was made by inking up just one of the rows of scallops from a backdrop image in Wonky Backdrops, and I just hand-drew her facial features with a fine tip marker.

This is SUCH a fun set to build little garden scenes with! I was going for a “hand-carved”/linocut style.  What do you think?

  1. This is an amazing set! I love everything about it!! It’s so fun and whimsical, and can be used for any occasion. Your card is fabulous! I love the little snail peeking out from behind the foliage. What I love even more is that you can move the leaves back and forth. You could play peek-a-boo for hours, lol. So very creative!

  2. I think it’s adorable. Almost too real cuz that snail reminds me of the slugs that like my lettuce way too much! I’m looking forward to Thistle projects. What a great design.

  3. Such a darling card. The snail is so cute. She is so vibrantly dressed for the occasion you’d think she had more to do than just say hello; such as a date maybe. Lol. Love all the stamps.

  4. This is such a sweet card !!

  5. Making the snail and shell separate, so it can be used as a slug is brilliant. Julie, you rock! Love the sentiments.

  6. Love this set. The snailed it could not be more hilarious. Nicely done. This is going to be such fun…..

  7. Freaking in love with this snail…and those botanicals are to die for.

  8. You are t Queen of CAS, your beautiful designs never disappoint. Great job.

  9. Cute stuff!

  10. Super FUN stamp set and card! I love the peekaboo leaves idea!
