Shaving Cream Oceans and Roses

Hi everyone! I’m squeezing in another Craftsy tutorial today. This time I’m revisiting the shaving cream technique.  Actually, I had never used this technique until writing THIS tutorial. It was fun!

I have one card with the more common swirled or marbled effect and on my second card I was able to create a pattern of roses.  Squeee! I  love how it turned out!  And I love that it’s “different.”   :)

First I used Surf & Turf by Paper Smooches.

1-Final-Hey-Gillfriend650R2

My seahorse (colored with Copic markers) is surrounded by an ocean of swirly blue… and a tiny bit of green.  (The pearls were colored using a Copic marker.)

1-Final-Hey-Gillfriend-CU-500R

And then…the roses!  The sentiment is from Pretty Phrases also by Paper Smooches.

MFT March Previews – I Knead You

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to a second day of March 3 release previews with My Favorite Things!  Today I’ve used one of two new sets by Birdie Brown, I Knead You along with coordinating Die-namics.

I-Love-Mew-500

I cut new Blue Breeze card stock using Blueprints 23, and stamped the fish bones using new After Midnight dye ink.  A stamp press made lining and spacing the image super easy.

The kitty was die-cut from X-Press It Blending Card, stamped in Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers.

I poked a small hole beneath each paw, inserted string and wound a small ball at the bottom, attached by a big smooshed glue dot.  Hearts were cut using Blueprints 11 and covered with Glossy Accents.

I-Love-Mew-CU

Inside, I added an extra strip of fish bones, stamped a sentiment in Black Licorice and Red Hot ink and added a cute little mouse toy  in the corner.

MFT Ingenious Inking Challenge

Hi everyone! Today the MFT design team begins a new monthly challenge – Ingenious Inking. This month we are showing how our line of MIX-ables can be used to alter our Premium Dye Inks, Pigment Inks and Hybrid Inks to create new looks and applications. “MIX-ables make it easy to add sparkle, shine, and glitz to projects – subtle or bold –it truly is a bit of crafting magic.”

On my first card, I used Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables over a sponged Herringbone Bricks stenciled background.

Let-Your-Light-Shine-Feb-II-500Using a blending tool, I applied Lemon Drop, Razzleberry and Pink Lemonade dye inks to a Sweet Tooth card base. I spritzed on Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables and allowed to dry.

Let-Your-Light-Shine-Feb-II-CU

The first line of the sentiment, from Watt’s Up?, was stamped in Black Licorice dye ink then clear embossed.  SHINE was die-cut from Black Licorice card stock using Bright Lights Alphabet.

Inside, I used a leftover strip of the sponged/spritzed background and stamped a sentiment from Watt’s Up?.

Let-Your-Light-Shine-Feb-II-In

Next, I sponged In the Buff, Coral Crush, Persimmon and Cherry Crisp dye inks onto Sweet Tooth card stock, then heavily sprayed with Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables.

Find-Joy-Feb-II-500Peaceful Wildflowers and a sentiment from Cheerful Blessings were both stamped in black and clear embossed.

I love the bit of sparkle and shine the Sheer Shimmer leaves behind.

Find-Joy-Feb-II-CU

Inside, I stamped a couple flowers using Persimmon dye ink and stamped a sentiment from Words of Inspiration.

Find-Joy-Feb-II-In

Find Joy card

have a joyous Easter

Hi everyone! I’m just popping in quickly to share a little Easter greeting using Paper SmoochesEaster Egg dies.  :)

The sentiment and tiny flowers are from Spring Fling stamp set, with the tag cut using Gift Tag Dies.

Have-a-Joyous-Easter-475-Rev

To create the card base, I first folded my card stock in half then cut the egg shape from both layers at once, with the top hanging just a bit off the edge of the die.  I cut a second egg (single layer), stamped and embellished, then attached it to the egg shaped base.

Have-a-Joyous-Easter-CU-Rev

The egg measures 3 5/8″ x 3″ so it’s small but not tiny.

I placed small pieces of Kool Tak Clear Foam Squares between the layers of the bow.  I use the Kool Tak squares when I want just a bit of dimension as they’re thinner than most foam tapes.  (I like the option of multi-width dimension.)  :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
