Countdown to Confetti: Sammy Squirrel

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


Well, today starts the COUNTDOWN to our sweet new summer release from REVERSE CONFETTI!  This month's release is easy on the eyes and features 5 new stamp sets and a ton of Confetti Cuts Dies...6 die sets to be exact!

Today, the Confetti Crew is sharing what we've made with the newest Quirky Cutie, SAMMY SQUIRREL--I'm sure you'll go nuts over him. 


My card not only features SAMMY SQUIRREL as the main focus, but I've used a couple of the new Confetti Cuts dies here as well.  Check out the new TRIANGLES PRETTY PANELS die and behind Sammy you'll find a rounded tag that's included in the new TAGGED TOTE die set.  It was a bit time consuming, I'll admit, to paper piece Sammy and give him that "I've got the measles" look, but paired with the rest of the card's "busy-ness", I think it keeps in step with the vibe!  What's not paper pieced, I colored in with my Copics.  Also, the blue background is stamped with the new SO MANY STARS background stamp set.  I LOVE THIS ONE and can tell it will be a "go-to" set for sure.  Ok, well I could go on and on, but SQUIRREL!


 

We have lots more sneak peeks to share over the next 2 days.  Then, everything will be available on the 8th.  Don't forget that Jen has a link list going daily (September 5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  The last time I paper pieced an image, I forgot to run a black marker around the edges of where I had cut it out.  I remembered this time and can sure tell a difference--so much nicer!  I used a Tombow brush tip marker for this.  It's an extra step, but you'll be glad you did it.
