Hello Teddies

This cute digi image with the teddy bears is from Bugaboo Stamps.  It is precolored so
the cards I make with it go together quickly.  I designed all the layers in Silhouette Studio and
cut out all the pieces (except the pink dot layer) with my Cameo die cutting machine. 
I plan to send this in the next package to the children's charity.

Trying a new technique


I am still learning to use the functions in GIMP and tried something new.  I stamped this horse image from the SU Equestrian Dreams set with black ink on white paper.  Scanned it into my computer and opened it in GIMP.  Used the color then invert functions to reverse the colors so now I have a black background with white lines.  In the past I would have embossed the image with white embossing powder on black card stock to get the same effect, but this is so much easier to do.  Also created the stripe and stitched chevron papers in GIMP.  I plan to send this in the next package to the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.
