January Techniques Class

Yesterday I went to JaNell's SU workshop. The new technique we learned was "faux silk" super easy. Have you tried this? All you need to do is take a piece of tissue paper, stamp your image and crinkle the tissue paper up into a ball. Next, take your tissue paper and open it up and smooth it out. You are now ready to glue it to your paper. I was very excited because JaNell had found my new favorite glue stick. Scotch has made a glue stick called "Wrinkle-free" and it is awesome. It comes in a pack of two. I bought mine at Wal-mart for under $2.50. Look for it next time you go shopping, you won't be disappointed, I promise.

On this card we got to use SU "Valentine's Bundle" which I really like. The paper is from the pack called "Candy Lane" the colors and patterns all coordinate so nicely.

I liked all the things I made, but this little guy is just to cute. It looks like a 3x3 card, but really it is a treat holder. Yum! Chocolate! Okay, so if you would like to make one all you have to do is cut your paper 3" by 9" and then score at 3" and 6". Use a 1 3/8" circle punch to make your hole, so your treat can show through. We used yummy Dove caramel milk chocolate candies. We punched (scallop) out a piece of designer paper from the "Candy Lane" to put behind the candy. We did something different on the outside. We used two dimensionals at the very top of the Love stamped piece of paper, so that the ribbon can slide underneath it. I can't wait to make more of these. So cute and easy peasy. Love it!

Our free gift was this adorable Kit Kat bar. It was all wrapped up in "Bella Rose" designer series paper. Finished off with ribbon and "Love you Much" stamp, punched out. Super cute! Thanks JaNelle for another fun evening with friends and new SU products.
