This is my second post today, I couldn't help myself I was inspired by this new release set at Bug A Boo Stamps called Christmas Brats. There are three images and I just had to play with them and try to merge them with my Microsoft Publisher program. I knew it would work I just didn't know it was going to be so easy. I used the png files with the transparent backgrounds and... I know I'm a geeek.
After printing this cute image I colored it with Copic makers R22, R24, R27, R02, YG11, YG13, YG17, E00, E000, E31, E33, E34, Y32, C1, C00, W1, cut it out and matted it using Spellbinder's Octagon and scalloped octagon dies then had to come up with a layout. I was thinking about a candy cane stripe, printed digital paper with a candy cane stripe and set it aside. Hmmm...
Instead I went with layers of red and white using Neenah Solar White and Red Linen and embossed the white layers with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Sizzix Snowflakes embossing folders and layered them on my card base. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set stamped in Palette Pure Poppy ink.
To see what our design team made for the new release of Christmas Brats go to Catch The Bug and to see the entire collection you can go to the Bug A Boo Stamps online store. They are cute!
Now that I have that out of my system I need to go do what I'm really supposed to be doing. The kids have parties at the end of the week and need cookies. I'm off to the store.
