Reverse Confetti Quirky Cuties Blog Hop

Hi there & welcome to the
Reverse Confetti Quirky Cuties Blog Hop!



If you're following the hop, you should have arrived here from Monika Davis' blog.
If not, you can find a complete list for the hop further down in this post.

For the hop, I chose to make a card using the adorable Rocky Raccoon & 
 CAS(E) This Sketch #86 by Sam Simpson:


I wanted to work with this week's sketch and I got the idea to rotate it &
give my card front the feel of an envelope & make Rocky into a postage stamp.
With him holding that sweet envelope, he seems very well suited for this position! ;)


I started by diecutting the rectangle die from Class Act Confetti Cuts
from aqua mist card stock and then diecutting it again to give it more of a square shape.
I stamped Rocky Raccoon & then paper-pieced him with soft stone, pure poppy & white card stock. 
For his bandana, I used a stamp from So Stripey in pure poppy & aqua mist.
For the "stamp-like edges", I trimmed a piece of white card stock into a square and then
 used the notebook edge die from Office Edges Confetti Cuts to make the circle indents.
The top edge was also stamped using So Stripey.
I stamped the sentiments from So Very Special and then adhered my panel using dimensional adhesive.

Next step on the hop is Cindy Lawrence.

You'll want to leave a comment on each blog on the hop, because TWO random commenters will win:
Studio 3 Solutions Color Cubbie + 3 Quirky Cuties (winner’s choice)


Here's the list of the others participating in the blog hop: 
winners will be announced on Monday on the Reverse Confetti blog.
