Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Ours was a bit hectic but we did find time to see Men In Black 3 Friday afternoon.  It wasn't my choice but I ended up enjoying it.  Unbelievable how realistic everything on screen is now a days.  My favorite Men In Black movie is still the first one but this one runs a close second.  Lets move on to today's project.....

Stampin' Up! has a lot of great videos for demonstrators and I went browsing the other day to see what might be a fun technique for my club this month.  The project I want to share with you today is one that my club members will be making this month.  It uses a technique that I actually hadn't tried yet...Faux Silk.

Pin It
The card is made with the Papaya Collage stamp set.  It's on page 72 of the Brand New Stampin' Up! Catalog.  I'm using two colors from the new In Colors...they are:
  • Gumball Green
  • Summer Starfruit
I'm a big fan of the new In Colors and love the new Firm Foam Ink Pads.
The faux silk technique uses crumpled tissue paper and an Anywhere Glue Stick.  It's really very simple and actually looks a lot like silk.  

If you live in Jasper or the surrounding areas (Canton, Ellijay, Dawsonville, Fairmount, etc.) I would like to invite you to come join us for class.  We will be making this card, a cute slider card, and something else I haven't finished cooking up yet. :)  It's a great place to learn paper crafting techniques, meet new friends, relax, and have fun!  And...the club is for all skill levels. 

I have three days scheduled for club this month... June 8, 10, and 12.  Click Here for more details and to register to attend.  Better a friend or two and see if they would like to join you! If you have questions feel free to give me a call or send me an email.
