Sunny Studio Stamps – Snail Mail Stamp Set

January 1, 2021

Hello friends and Happy New Year! I have a card to share with you today that features the new Snail Mail Stamp Set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I combined this adorable set with both the Backyard Bugs and Turtley Awesome stamp sets to create a fun little Valentines scene.

To start, I first trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock slightly larger than 4.25″ x 5.5″. I then stamped my images using the masking technique and some Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Sheets to create a single layer card. While my masking pieces were still in place, I then blended the background sky with some Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Inks.

Next, I blended the grass area with Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide Ink and splattered both the top and bottom distressed areas with diluted opaque white paint. I then removed my masking sheets and allowed my panel to dry completely before trimming it down to 4.25″ x 5.5″. Next, I colored my images with Copic Markers and then stamped my sentiment into the top left corner with black ink.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Mailbox: W2, W4, W6, W9
  • Greens: G20, G21, G24, YG67
  • White/Grays: 0, C0, C2, C4
  • Reds: R14, R46, R89
  • Mailbox Base: E30, E23, E25
  • Turtle Shell: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
