Quirky Cuties Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to Reverse Confetti's Quirky Cuties blog hop! If you arrived here from Cindy Lawrence's blog, you are right on track! To start at the beginning of the hop and for a list of all participants and prize information please start here.

There's nothing like a Quirky Cuties image to bring a smile to someone's face! I choose Rocky the Raccoon for my card because he delivers a letter of love. 

How could one resist Rocky? I colored him with Copic markers, paper pieced his shirt and handkerchief and added a tiny heart button to his note. Isn't he handsome? 

Next up on the hop is my talented teammate Susan Liles. Thanks for hopping with us today! Enjoy!

Use it Up, Wear it Out

As a paper crafter who makes a lot of cards, scrapbook pages and decor items, I end up with a whole lot of scraps! It was time to utilize some of those pretty papers and this is what I came up with. 

This pretty star paper was from the My Girl collection by My Mind's Eye. I used a few dies to make the stars, sentiment and tag. Then I layered all the dies together and topped them a mini clothespin and jute bow.  Like yesterday's card post, I tried to keep it clean and simple and stopped myself from adding more accents. Not easy! ;)

Clean & Simple

I admire those of you who can make eye catching clean and simple card designs! Often times I think it would be awesome to be able to sit down and whip up a card in just minutes using only a few scrap items. For this card project I challenged myself to do just that and it wasn't easy for me!

 I'm so used to playing with lots of layers, dies and accents that I kept trying to add buttons or sequins or something else to this card. I suppose, just like anything else, it will take practice.

Latest Publication

Fall is on it's way! I found proof of that in the mailbox this weekend when I received my copy of CardMaker, Autumn, 2014. This issue is loaded with projects to inspire a whirlwind of paper crafting!

My contribution to the issue is this Happy Halloween card with glassine goody bag. I created this set with Pebbles' Thirty One collection. Two of my favorite accents in the line are the stickers that include the adorable Dracula featured on my card and the 'toe tag' attached to the goody bag. 

If you love woodland creatures, there's an entire section dedicated to these adorable critters! And you will love all the ideas for creating cards with vellum!
