Snail Mail and Stitched Woodgrain { Lil' Inker Designs}

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs July release blog hop! It's always so much fun to share projects with you during release weeks, and I hope you've had a blast hopping around to check out the goodies! 

Today, I'd like you to meet our new little friendly snail from the Snailed It! stamp set (and coordinating dies!) How cute is he!? (I never thought I'd say that about a SNAIL.) I paired our new little buddy with stamps from the Sending You stamp set and the Mini Envelope die set. 


I added a generous dose of dimensional glaze onto the snail's shell, as well as the red hearts. I love the shine it added!

And did you notice the sweet heart hidden in the new Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain? Love this die. I've used it about a thousand times since I received it! 


 And here's one more quick little card I created with the sweet snail. I just snapped a picture of this right before I popped it into an envelope for someone special.  It was going to travel all the way out of the country, so I wanted to be sure it was pretty flat and easy to send a long distance!


And now. . .without further ado, the rest of the blog hop! Remember to comment along the way, for a chance to win one of three $15 gift certificates to the LID store! Thanks a million for coming by today! xoxo

Love the wood design. I like to use it when I have "wood" paper and it will be fun to be able to make my own "wood".
the little snail is darling. Fun idea to have him with the letter.
thanks for sharing some great cards.

You are right--your snail is ADORABLE! I hadn't noticed the little heart in the stitched woodgrain. I've got to get it now!

I LOVE what you did here, Laura!!! Your first card incorporating the Mini Envelopes Die is so stinkin' brilliant!!! I didn't even THINK about that so I'm floored. And your second card is so super sweet. Such great work here. Thank you so much!!
