Countdown to Confetti: Freida Fox and Paper Crane

PSST...I have TWO posts today!  Click HERE for the Verve Diva Inspiration Hop.


Well, we are busy, busy, busy packing up our house.  (14 years of accumulation=wow!) We are moving NEXT WEEKEND!  Oh my!  It's still surreal to me.  I haven't had much time to squeeze in any creating except in the last few days, so you'll be hearing from me more consistently this week with all the fun and excitement of a new release coming on the 8th from REVERSE CONFETTI!

 
Today, we are sharing our sneak peeks for two new sets--PAPER CRANE and FREIDA FOX from the new Quirky Cuties line being introduced this month.


The PAPER CRANE set is very unique and a concept that Jen and I couldn't wait to get in stamp form! 


Y'all will just HAVE to check out what the rest of the Confetti Crew did with this set--can you say INCREDIBLE!?  Jen has a link list going daily (Jan. 5-7) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.


Then there's the new Quirky Cuties stamp line...PURE LOVEFREIDA FOX is the first of several sweet animals that we will be debuting in the coming months.  It was super fun to heat emboss her little glasses and paper piece her dress.  Gosh, and when was the last time I colored an image?  I forgot how much I love to do that.


Ok and do y'all see any new dies on here?  YEP, the hearts on the Freida Fox card all came from the new LOVE NOTES die set.  They are perfect!  In fact, here's a look at all the new stuff I used today:




Want to win some REVERSE CONFETTI of your very own?  
There's TWO ways to do that!

Leave a comment on each of the designer's blogs for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate.  Comments will close at noon CST on January 7th and the winner will be announced at 5pm on January 7th on the Reverse Confetti Blog.  In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion. After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for the pink circle graphic.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I wanted to color my little Freida as a gray fox, but I didn't know exactly what they looked like or if they were all gray (even though there's a sly one that lives in our neighbor's back yard).  Pinterest helped me figure out her coloring, hence the orange tips on her ears and tail.  Now I want a fox.  And some wooden pallets to make stuff with.  Maybe a DIY home for the fox next door.
