Smooch Painted Texture by Judy Jackson

Good morning everyone from Judy Jackson.  Are you like  frantically trying to get "IT"  all done in time to enjoy the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with family?  I know we all have a lot to do  right now!  I am busily trying to get my Christmas cards all made! 

Then I just wonder have you seen a product  or a stamp or an embossing folder and said to yourself, "I know exactly how I will use this!"  I saw these new Tim Holtz embossing folders and that was exactly what I said to myself!  These folders needs SMOOCH!  I was very excited and could hardly wait to receive it.  And today I made two cards with these new embossing folders using theSmooch Painted Texture from the December 2011/January 2012 Technique Junkie Newsletter.  I hope you like them! 
I used a small piece of mica and embossed the greeting one the pine bough and pine cone card.  The greeting is from Sweet and Sassy Stamps.  Add a little Distress Stickles (Picket Fence) and some sparkly Fluff for snow in the needles and the pine cone.   The finishing touch on both cards is a few spritzes glimmer spray. 
 
I think these two embossing folders just cry for using this technique.  What do you think?
 
Enjoy planning and making your Christmas cards!  And may it be a merry time!
 
Judy Jackson

Judy, these cards are gorgeous! Can you tell me where to find the directions for the technique? I love this blog, and I get the TJ newsletters, so I LOVE it when you tell me where to find the directions! Thanks!

Judy, I can hardly wait to see both cards in person. Ladies, I saw the poinsettia one being made, and it was beautiful even before the second coat of red smooch.

Lovely cards, Judy! I am partial to the pine branch one as it looks so realistic. Wow! Thanks for directing us to the technique too.
