Long Live Snail Mail | Woodblock Wednesday

I'm back with another edition of Woodblock Wednesday!  Let's get right to it, I'm featuring:

Savvy Stamps - Long Live Snail Mail 1549C
Savvy Stamps - Snail 1544C
Rosie's Roadshow - frame
Rosie's Roadshow - chicken
Rosie's Roadshow - sentiment

You may have seen this sneak peek on my IG Story:

Sorry, the info on the cute Rosie's Roadshow is pretty sparse.  I picked them up from Impress [retail] and they don't have them listed in their online shop.

Here's how I was inspired:

I ended up making three of each design.  I've been shooting for 10+ cards going out for happy mail per week.  I still have quite the stash also.    This design is especially timely give the #stayhome order that so many of us are experiencing.  The base is Stampin' Up Crisp Cantaloupe.

Seriously, that snail is awesome, isn't she?  I originally started by stamping out that sweet Rosie's Roadshow frame.  I was going to mask off a portion of the bottom of the frame and then stamp the chicken [see above] in the frame.  I had forgotten that the chicken has its own border.

The snail works perfectly in the frame.  You can't readily tell but I have colored C1 underneath the snail and then it's been loaded up with Wink of Stella.  The base is Stampin' Up Baja Breeze.
