TJ Blogstravaganza - Frames...Frames...Frames

I bet you're wondering what that's all about, huh? Well, the December issue of the TJNL is being mailed out to subscribers, and 2 of the new techniques in this issue have to do with frames....No, not the frames you put pictures in, but frames you can create around your stamped images. Not a subscriber - check out the details here

I just LOVE this new set, Worship the Lord from Our Daily Bread Designs! This set is one of the new releases coming on December 1st. The technique I used here is Torn Frames from the 12/08 TJNL. For my frame pieces, I used my Labels II. My image is stamped in Black Archival on watercolor paper, then colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique. I added Angel Wings Shimmerz to my trees and roof top for some added sparkle. The designer paper and card stock used can be found here. I used my paper piercing tool to add interest around my image.

Stamps - ODBD - Worship the Lord
Ink - Black, Markers, Shimmerz

My second card also uses one of the new Frame Techniques from the 12/08 TJNL. I've also added some Paper Piecing and accented the sleigh with Coal Shimmerz. This Masked Frame Technique is a great way showcase your focal image.


My cute images come from Starving Artistamps DoodleFactory - Santa's Sweet Shoppe. I used Eclipse Tape to stamp and mask my images. The designer paper is from Christmas Magic and can be found here.

These are wonderful as all your creations are. Your blogsravaganza things are all giving me some great ideas for my Annual Sister's Retreat I am having the day after Thanksgiving. My five sister-in-laws are all coming over for a great time of creating, talking, crafting and of course, eating. Thanks for the inspiration.
