SquirrelFest Challenge + Giveaway!

Hi, it's Emily here with a new squirrel card and video for my fall SquirrelFest Challenge. After sharing my husband's card and my son's painting, I was inspired to create my own hilarious squirrel scene in the form of an accordion tri-fold card.

I used Enjoy the Show (Circus Icons) and Fanciful Fall (Fanciful Fall Icons) sets to create my scene and sponged the sky and grass with distress inks.

If this scene were to play out in slow motion, you would see the squirrel jumping up to replace all of the acorns with balls. I'm sure you have other interpretations of what's happening between the clown and the squirrel. I'd love to hear them! ;)

I hope you'll play along for extra chances to win two fabulous Paper Smooches stamp sets!


One lucky winner will receive Chilly Chums and I Blank You, perfect for all your winter and holiday cardmaking! All you have to do is:

  1. Leave a comment on SquirrelFest: Part 1;
  2. Leave a comment on SquirrelFest: Part 2;
  3. Leave a comment on SquirrelFest: Part 3; and
  4. Enter the SquirrelFest Challenge as many times as you like.
SquirrelFest Challenge

The SquirrelFest Challenge will begin immediately and run 'til 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, November 25, 2014. All you have to do is submit a paper-crafted project with a squirrel on it.
