Hi everyone! I’m really excited today because I got the chance to play with a new stamp set from Trinity Stamps. I adore this stamp company… and it’s a pretty new company but already has a great collection of stamps in their store. I met the owner, Taniesa, at Creativation and she’s the sweetest. I also read up further about the company and really loved her story.
I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to share my creations with you using the newly released, Mr. Snailman. And yes, plural! I created two cards with this set and still have a bunch of ideas running through my head. For both these cards, I reached for my love of interactive cards.
For the first card, I decided Mr. Snailman is perfect for a cute slider headed towards the mailbox for delivery. When you pull on the tab, not only does the snail move to the mailbox, it also reveals a little sweet message.
Since this is a smaller stamp set with two main images, created a distress ink background for a sunset sky to fill out a scene behind the images. I added some grass die cuts to the bottom of the card and hid my slider. To finish off this card, I stamped a sentiment “Hooray for Snail Mail” on the top of the card and added Soapy Bubble confetti to embellish the card.
I love the iridescent color of these sequins… it really makes it special and picks up the color from the background as well.
My second card also contains an interactive element, a shaker, but I kept most of it pretty simple. I stamped Mr. Snailman on the right side of the card. I created a mask for him and stamped out the bundle of hearts all over a piece of A2 cardstock in a light grey creating the look of patterned paper.
I used a snowy drift die cut to create a “trail” behind the snail because I wanted this part to be the shaker. I used a piece of acetate with a fold and lined it up flush to the edge of the card. Using foam tape and scor tape, I create a pocket for the Skip a Beat Confetti.
I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder on red cardstock matting it on brown cardstock to match the colors of the snail image. I finished off the card by adding a few hearts around the sentiment, tying the entire card together.
This little stamp set is small but is so perfect for so many ideas… I still have so many! Hope it inspired you to create as well.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
