Yesterday's Hot Dog card was all about the stamping. Let's swing things the other way. Today's card is all about the tools (lots of fun happy tools) with just a smidgen of stamping. Tools like the Snail dies which go way beyond snail dies. Did you notice the adorable teeny tiny envelope? Yep, that's a die from the Snail dies. And that's just for starters! There are also mushrooms, bitty hearts, mail, a word bubble, a framed square, and yes....snails!
Creating the "Happy Mail Enclosed " stamps was a 3 step process
Step one, using Bermuda Bay Ink and the Snailed It stamp set I stamped "Happy Mail Enclosed".
Step two, I lightly brushed over my stamping with Bermuda Bay Ink and the fabulous new Blending Brushes. Yes, I admit that I am slightly obsessed with the Blending Brushes. I love the effect and they are so easy to use!
Step three, I punched out my postage stamps using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.
Believe it or not, other than the light brushing on the Postage Stamps there was no coloring on this card. That's because the Snail Dies coordinated with images from the Snail Mail Designer Paper! Love, love, love the fast and easy results!

Does Snail Mail Make Perky Valentines?
