Bug A Boo Stamps Snowman


You've probably noticed I've been using a lot of Bug A Boo Stamps digital images lately.  I've been totally inspired and having so much fun working with them I can't seem to stop, so I have another card to share today...
It all started Sunday afternoon when I looked at the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #48.  Wow, I loved the sketch and the sample card made by Samantha and was inspired all over again.  I could see Jodie's tall thin snowman image that was a Friday Freebie image a few weeks ago in those tall panels and there's a whole collection of the snowmen I could choose from!

I decided on the snowman with the bell and the snowman with the jingle bell.  I liked the first snowman because I wanted to "flip" the image so the snowman on either side of the one in the middle were facing each other.  Kind of...  So I re-sized the snowmen to fit the panels, flipped the first one in my Publisher software, printed and got busy coloring.  I used Copic markers YR04, YR07, T1, T2, T3, T5, B21, B24, B28, C00, C1, C3, C6, & G0000.  

It all went pretty quickly and I was ready to make the card base.  I used Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue, Neenah Solar White and Papertrey Ink Basic Black.  I had a scrap of white embossed with the Sizzix snowflake embossing folder and thought it would be perfect for this and used it.  
Quick, simple & fun!

I need to mention it is Freebie Friday over at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug, go check it out and see what Jodie and the design team girls have in store for you today!
