Bobblehead Santa from Bugaboo Stamps

Today is new release day over at BugABoo stamps and Jodie has 2 new sets for you: Bobblehead Christmas and Butterfly Borders!  Well, anyone who knows me well, knows I would choose Christmas, lol.  I listen to Christmas music all year round and my favorite cards to make are Christmas cards.

So this is Bobblehead Santa, isn't he the cutest?  I sized and printed him on to Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Santa - E000, RV10
Hat and Coat - R46
Sack - G07
Boots - E47

I added white Fun Flock to his beard and mustache, and Sparkly Fluff to the rim on his hat and coat.  I airbrushed BG32 around the image before removing it from my Spellbinders Circle die.  I added dots to the brown scalloped circle with a white glaze pen.  Next I printed and colored another Santa head, cut it out and popped it up to give the appearance of a bobblehead. 

The striped DP is from the Christmas Mint collection by SEI.  The house border paper is from the Merrymint collection by American Crafts.  The border on the bottom is Martha Stewart's Scallop 3 Dot punch, I covered up two of the dots.  Finished size is 6" square.

Be sure to check out the Catch the Bug challenge blog for more fabulous creations from the Design Team.  

Please Note:  We make every attempt to have new images in the store by the time the post goes up however some times it is not possible.  If they are not there yet they will be in the store later today! Please come back to get them later.
