Garden Snails

 I've created a little garden scene with a couple of snails and a few other bits and pieces - always a bit of a fiddly job gathering everything together and arranging  to make a pleasing scene but this is something |I enjoy doing.  I started with a square of white card and blended blue in the sky area and some earth effect for the ground before digging out various die sets to build up the scene as well as stamping the snails which are coloured using alcohol pens and then fussy cut.  Lots of 'stuff' to tidy away after making this one and care has to be taken with the tiny dies so that they don't get lost - might need them to build a different scene 😉😉

Snails - Snail Mail stamp set Stampin' Up
Trees, Fence, Flower Border - from two Sizzix die sets
Bird, Toadstools, Grassy Tufts - Dies which I think came as  magazine freebies 


  1. Lovely garden scene you’ve created for your little snails Val...would make a lovely Anniversary card too.
