Countdown to Confetti: Quirky Cuties: Sammy Squirrel

Welcome to Day 1 of the September Release for Reverse Confetti


It's a fabulous fall release, 
with five new stamps sets & six new Confetti Cuts! 

Today, we are introducing a new set: 
 it's another adorable Quirky Cuties set called Sammy Squirrel.

You can see the product graphics at the bottom of my post.  

The first thing I noticed about Sammy Squirrel was his adorable bow tie, 
which immediately made me think of the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who -- "Bow ties are cool."
(We got Netflix this summer and have been watching the Doctor Who series
-- it's so good, I'm totally hooked!)
From there, the idea came to make this card....


See? He's in the Tardis! 
I created the Tardis using some navy card stock which I die cut using the rounded 
rectangle die from Class Act Confetti Cuts and inked the edges.
I created the window panes using the strips from Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts.
For the "Public Call Box," I cut up the alphabet stamp from Class Act.
For the sentiment, I pieced together some of the sentiments from Quirky Cuties: Oliver Owl
which I stamped in Versamark on vellum & heat embossed in white.
(My daughter, Sage, was the one to come up with the sentiment -- it starts with "Who", get it?)
I stamped Sammy Squirrel on some kraft card stock and paper pieced him.
I added a little colour to his polka dot bow tie with a shimmer marker.

  

    


That's it for today!

Darling card! Very clever design!

Ruth G said...

I've seen Sammy and his fun bow tie a number of times now, but it never even crossed my mind that he could be The Dr (probably because my hubby is the only family member who really likes #11 - although I have to admit I didn't watch until this season...)
This is super cute, though! I love the sentiment - great punny fun! Thanks so much for sharing!
