TJ Combo Fun

I'm so excited!  A technique I contributed to Technique Junkies Newsletter was published in the recent December/January issue.  You may recall this card I posted a few posts back in August 

...some of you asked me how I made the background, but I couldn't tell you because I'd emailed Pat Huntoon, Editor of Technique Junkies describing how I created the background and asking if she would be interested in testing the technique for publishing in the TJ newsletter.  

Low and behold, I got my December/January newsletter the other day and there was my technique entitled "Texture Transfer Tutorial".  I was over the moon excited.  Thank you, Pat!!!

If you don't subscribe to Technique Junkies and you like techniques in card making, you might want to check it out.  It's well worth the cost of the subscription and Pat also offers additional CD's  to purchase of past published techniques as well as CD's for 3D projects, motion cards and fancy fold cards.  Great Christmas gifts BTW.  

I thought I would create this card using the Texture Transfer Technique and also use another fabulous technique in the Dec/Jan Newsletter called "Picture Perfect" - you can see it illustrated in the sentiment area of this card.  I absolutely LOVED how this came out.  What a fabulous technique!!!  

For this card I used CS by GKD Pure Luxury "All Spruced Up", "Kraft" and White.  The bg flourish tree stamp is from Hero Arts and is stamped with DI "Forest Moss" Ink.  For the "Textured Transfer" layer I used the new holiday collection of TH DI.  Edging is MS punch, and embossed with SU ef.  The sentiment stamp is from GKD "Very Merry Christmas", illustrated by Theresa Momber.  

This has been a lengthy post, and I thank you spending your time here.
