Rainbow Snail Mail Mini Card (IC #10)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Rainbow Snail Mail Mini Card. :o)


I made this Interactive (IC) RIBBON/TWINE SLIDER CARD for my Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2019 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

This is a tenth type of IC I made for my challenge. I made 15 different types of interactive cards during Pisces period, which was my personal challenge. I completed my challenge, achieved my goals and had a lot of fun. I wrote a short review about the challenge here.

I learned how to make this type of card from Jennifer McGuire. Such a clever design. Love it!!! Here is a link to Jennifer's video tutorial: Ribbon Slider Cards. :o)

I loved Jennifer's card with a snail in the video and decided to go with same theme on my card. Thank you for the inspiration and tutorial, Jennifer!!! :o)


How I made this card...

First I made a card construction. I followed steps from Jennifer's McGuire video tutorial.

Next up was an image. I used SUPER CUTE tiny snail from Najlepši par 'Igrivi palčki' stamp set. I received the set as a happy mail present from my friend crafter Valentina of Barvito malo mesto. :o) Love the set sooooo much!!! :o)

I die cut a wonky stitched circle from a white cardstock paper and stamped the snail on the circle. I colored the snail with colored pencils and coated his house with a transparent varnish to create glossy accents. I left the image dry for couple hours.

After drying, I glued 3-D foam on the circle, glued it on the card and my card was finished. :o)


Card measurements (pocket): 76 mm x 89 mm (3" x 3.5")

I LOVE how my card turned out!!! :o)




Thank you for stopping by and your kind feedback. Enjoy and smile! :o)

And here is my take on the challenge: Rainbow Science Notebook. :o)



To make this notebook I used stamps from two Your Next Stamp stamp sets: 'Perfect Chemistry' and 'Periodically Nerdy'. LOVE!!!! :o)



I made this notebook for myself. I went with Physics theme, same as did on a card that I made last year (here). :o)

I used a super funny professor, who likes just like famous Physicist Albert Einstein, and went with Physic's theme: White Light Refraction.

Going through glass prism, white light refracts. A beam of white light splits into its component wavelengths, those that form the rainbow

If you want to find a bit more about refraction and rainbow, just follow these links:


How I made this notebook...

bound a notebook, using white printing paper, white cardstock covers, rainbow selection of patterned papers, embroidery thread and needle. I used Coptic Stitch for binding. I learned the particular stitch from a great YouTube tutorial by Sea LemonHow to Make a Sketchbook/DIY Coptic Stitch Bookbinding Tutorial. Check out her channel, she has awesome bookbinding tutorials. :o)

I selected letters from Periodic Table of Elements which form word 'Notebook', stamped them on various patterned papers, fussy cut letters, traced edges with a black marker and glued them directly on the notebook front cover. I also used element 'Mg' which stands for my initials. :o)

I stamped the professor on a watercolor paper and colored him in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut him, traced edges with black marker and softened him with a stylus ball on a soft working mat.

Then I stamped the professor on a white cardstock paper, fussy cut him, colored with a grey marker, traced edges with the black marker and glued watercolored professor over him. I did this to make the image thicker, to pop out on the cover. I wanted to use 3-D foam for the professor, so I stamped him once again directly on the cover and colored him with the black marker. I did this to create extra shade under the image. But I didn't like it, so I glued watercolored professor over him and my notebook was finished. :o)

I love how my notebook turned out!!! :o)

    For today I prepared this CAS (clean and simple), Never Too Old Card. :o)


    To make this card I used stamps from Your Next Stamp 'Crazy Fun Shopping Carts' stamp set.


    I decided to feature this stamp set today because it's sooo fun. Adorable cute and fun images, fun sentiments and word play, which I love so much. :o) The set can be used for versatile projects: birthday cards, any occasion cards, for planner, shopping lists... LOVE it!!! :o)


    How I made my card....

    I stamped an image on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black marker.

    I wanted to create dimension with the image and went with image layering and partly popping up. I stamped another image on a white cardstock paper, fussy cut the image and cut off parts I didn't need. I colored the image with a grey marker and traced edges with the black marker.

    Then I stamped one more image directly on a white top folded card base and colored it with black and grey marker. I colored tiny drop with a Distress Ink.

    Here is a photo of all parts I prepared for image layering. :o)


    I glued all parts on it's place. I glued some parts directly on the card base and some I raised with 3-D foams.

    Then I heat embossed in white a sentiment on a black cardstock paper and cut the stripe to a desirable size and shape. I cut another stripe from a patterned paper, glued it on the card base, glued some 3-D foam on the sentiment stripe and glued it on the card base.

    As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights with a white pigment ink pen and my card was finished. :o)

    Card measurements: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
