FBD: Cutie Bug Digi Release Blog Hop

Don't you worry, you'll want to catch it too!

It's time to check out Fresh Brewed Designs New Digital Stamps for February.
There are 5 new images being released today, but you will have to  HOP in full to see them all! 

If you are arriving here from Edwina's blog, then you are right on track! 
If not then you need to skip on back to the start at Freshly Brewed Challenges.

I am so excited to share my project with you.  My card features the NEW DIGI
CUTIE BUG CONE from this month's release.

Check out what I made... 

General Comments: 
  • The main elements of the card were put together digitally.  The main image on the front remained as line art and then I coloured it once it was printed.  The front and the inside were cut out and then layered onto the card base, leaving the card base to serve as a bit of a background for a little extra depth.
  • Embellishments and ribbon were added to also provide a bit more depth.

Image Details:
  • Cutie Bug Cone:  One of the great new releases available today.  Head on over to the Blog and Store to check them all out!  Click HERE to find them in the store. 
    • I have coloured this image with Copic markers and chalk.  It is a bit funny because I sat and debated on what colours to do the bug in.  I tried to get some advice from the hubs but he is more of a literal thinker and was thinking in bug colours.  I wanted my Cutie to be a bit more fantasy based and wondered, "I wonder if a pink bug would be okay."  Then I come over here and really pay attention to the colour of the bug in the badge and it happens to be pink too.  I swear it is a total cowinkeedink.  Heather and I just apparently have a thing for pink bugs!
Digital Sentiment: 
  • The cute 4U sentiment is from my Create with TLC collection of images.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store. 
  • The ribbon is Offray brand from Michael's.
  • The half pearls are Crafts brand from Dollarama.

Sentiment Details:
  • Just one I whipped up that worked well with the image and as a thank you sentiment.
Digital Embellishments:

 Paper Products:
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's cardstock, red.
Digital Papers: 
  • Between the front and the inside, I used four fabulous digital papers created by Kris B. from Imagine That Digis.  All of these sweet papers are from her digital paper pack called "Ticket to Bliss".  Kris has some absolutely fabulous papers along with a wonderful selection of images.  To purchase this particular paper pack, click on the watermark you see below.

Challenges I am hoping to enter... 

As much as I hate to see you go, it is time for you to BUZZ on over to my 
friend Marji's blog to see the adorable project she has prepared for you. 

Be sure to hop through in full for a chance to win a free digi from this release!!! 

This hop starts today, February 10th, and ends on February 12, 11:59 PM EST. 

Have a happy and blessed day.
