Welcome to Tuesday and New Release day at Bugaboo.. The new release is a Snowman.
You can head over to Catch the bug and see this fun snowman made up..
This is my card using the Snowman new release.. I fussy cut the image out and added him to the embossed card front.. I saw Sandi MacIver on Facebook who is a Stampin Up demonstrator do the embossing folder technique where you take a brayer and on the inside of the folder and the side with the wording you brayer ink over it.. I used soft suede and ran the brayer over and over then I took the silhouette stamp set of little bushes and stamped them with chocolate ink along the bottom of the tree trunks. Then you take your white card stock and carefully lay it down inside the embossing folder and run it through your Big shot/ vagabond or what ever device you have and this is what you get.. I will have to remember to use this more and more. I love the effect and warm feel. This snowman I wanted to give him some bright colors so he stood out against the soft background. I carried over the red (using copics to color it) and white embossed the MSE sentiment. I added a couple snowflakes to go along with the winter scene.
I hope you head over to Catch the bug and see what the design team did with this fun image.
