Countdown to Confetti: Sammy Squirrel – My First Reverse Confetti Post

DSC_0006 2

Hello! Today is the first day of sneaks for the September Reverse Confetti release! This release is chalk full of stamps and dies so stay tuned for three fun days of sneaks! The entire collection will be available for purchase on the 8th!   Today, some of the DT (otherwise known as the Confetti Crew) are showcasing projects/cards using the new Sammy Squirrel set! And guess what? I AM ON THE DT! Yes, I already told you that, but I felt like shouting it out again because this is my very first DT post!

Meet Sammy! He is a cutie isn’t he. A nice full tail, holding a cute acorn with some fun things to say…. Nom Nom Nom!!!! I decided to use JUST the Sammy stamp set for this card and not integrate other products because Sammy is just so stinkin’ cute, he can hold his own, lol! I introduced Sammy to distress inks because he needed a fun acorn background!!!! To create the background, I inked up some watercolor paper with distress Ink (Wild Honey, Gathered Twigs) and using the acorn stamp from the stamp, I inked it up with water and stamped to create the water shaped background, then stamped the acorn image over the top of the watercolored shape.. Does that make sense? That sounded awfully wordy. LOL! I colored in Sammy with some Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and popped him up to the card base! I selectively stamped the sentiment! 🙂 I love Sammy! Oh, see the acorn? I added some Rock Candy stickles over the top… Candy covered acorns! Doesn’t that sound yummy? If you are gonna eat nuts, the only way to do it is to add sugar!


I’ve got some other projects to share using Sammy so stay tuned! More to come and more sneaks of other Reverse Confetti goodies to share with you over the next few days that I am SUPER excited about! Maybe a little Halloween themed, maybe a little “thankful” themed, I just don’t know! Maybe some treat bags, maybe some cards….
