Scrapbooking With Faux Silk

Happy Friday friends! My stampers club members are coming over tonight to make the two cards I shared with you yesterday, and now that I've posted today's sketch on SplitcoastStampers I can reveal the 3rd project.

This 8.5x8.5" scrapbook page based on the sketch above. I kinda cheated with the photo I slapped on. You can click on the picture to see a larger version if you like. It's my daughter hanging on the head/horns of a Texas longhorn statue. LOL I had another photo in mind originally, but couldn't find a print of it...I will probably switch it out and add journaling in the white space this weekend. :)

Stampin' Supplies:
STAMPS - Bliss*

PAPER - Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso
INK - Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Early Espresso (Markers - Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie)
OTHER - Orange Ribbon, Tissue Paper, Key Tag Punch**
*Only available FREE in the Sale-a-Bration Mini Catalog
**Retired (oops)

I'll be showing them the Faux Silk technique which is the piece under the photo stamped with flourishes. It's such a pretty technique, and WAY easy to do! Here's a closer look:

All you need is a good stamp, tissue paper and a glue stick!
  • Cut a piece of card stock to the size you want 
  • Cut a piece of tissue paper and leave it slightly larger than the card stock
  • Stamp all over the tissue paper
  • Crumple it up 
  • Smear the glue stick all over your card stock piece 
  • Smooth the tissue paper over it
  • Trim off the excess tissue paper
  • Step back and admire your awesomeness!
Try it with different colors, it's so easy! You can also stamp directly on the card stock before you layer the tissue paper...the image underneath ends up much softer, but you'll want to stick with a light color for the bottom card stock piece so it is still visible.
