Father Christmas--30 Days Celebration!

{jane bosi}

After a lengthy absence, I am delighted to be back on the TJ Designer's Blog!  I'm sharing my Father Christmas card in support of Pat's 30 Days of Christmas feature.  What a great way to inspire and get those creative juices flowing!!

I've chosen Father Christmas (SD311) as my focal image--I find myself drawn to the vintagey look of this stamp and use it quite often!  I've also chosen a technique from the Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle and Shine CD to draw attention to this wonderful image and give my card the much needed bling (it's Christmas afterall)!  The technique is called Acetate Sparkle.  If you do not already own the SGS&S CD, you can order it here--what a great gift for you!  Be sure to check out the rest of the selections, also :)

I created the frosted background with an embossing folder, white pigment ink and my white distress marker.  I love that thing!

Just a bit of burlap, felt and a bauble......all finished! 


Acetate Resist

Hello again, Jackie K here with an example of the Acetate Resist technique.
This technique is from the Oct/Nov issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.
I had so much fun making this card! You will Too!
This technique calls for a flourish image, but being me...I don't like being restricted in that way as long as I can find a stamp that highlights the B/G technique. I think I accomplished that, and you can too. Just chose a stamp that is an outline stamp and one that can be stamped many times in part or whole.
I used all TJ stamps
listed below:
Cherry Blossoms #SD294
Simple Sentiments Set2 Style a #SS2a
If you enjoy the color combo I used  Adirondak alcohol inks as listed below:
Wild Plum
TFL and I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving with your friends and family!
 See you back here soon
