Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail Sent With Lots of Heart for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Lots of Heart Stamp Set, the Many Hearts Dies and the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Jan-June Mini Catalog.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

This is the sketch we are using this week:

The Snail Mail Designer Series Paper definitely has a retro look, and it’s the perfect time to bring snail mail back.  Everyone loves finding happy mail in their mailbox, so lets spread some happiness!

Adhere a panel of Snail Mail DSP to a panel of Basic White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to crop the end of a 2″ wide strip of the DSP, and use Glue to adhere it to the layer along the right side.

Wrap a length of White twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack across the front of the card twice and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed layer to the front of a Pool Party card base.

Crop a panel of Real Red card stock with the largest heart die from the Many Hearts Dies.  Then use the medium heart die to crop a heart from a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere the white heart over the red heart using Liquid Glue.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a cute snail image from a panel of Snail Mail DSP.  Fussy cut the word balloon from the DSP as well.  Adhere them both to the heart layer using Glue.  Adhere the heart to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a red Resin Heart to the word bubble.  To complete, use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the triple loop bow.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the small heart from the Lots of Heart stamp set in the upper left and lower right corners of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then stamp the sentiments with Pool Party ink at the top and bottom of the panel.  Adhere the panel to a Real Red card stock mat and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card with Glue.

Now it’s all ready to go… who will you send it to?
