Shaving Cream Technique on StampTV

Hi everyone. This week GinaK, of GinaK Designs Stamp TV, showcased the shaving cream technique. Since I started stamping a couple of years ago I have always wanted to try this technique but I never found instructions or I was too lazy to look too hard, I prefer the first scenario. Gina's video explained everything perfectly. The part I couldn't figure out on my own was what you did with the shave cream after you got it on the cardstock. The solution is easy peasy. Gina used a Pampered Chef scraper which I didn't have but I did have a shower squeegie scraper.

I wanted to make a blue and brown shaving cream technique card because I wanted to use it to make the challenge card for Theresa's Color Challenge which was to use Chocolate Kiss cardstock and any other color. I thought blue would be nice. I like blue and chocolate almost as much as chocolate and pink. I used Bayou Blue and Close to Cocoa SU reinkers for my colors.

I colored the Iris from the Elegant Flowers that came with my Floral Frenzy StampTV package in turquoise to try to match the ink colors I had used for the shave cream.

I had the brown stitched ribbon but the stitching was white so I colored the white stitching with my copic markers.

Be sure to check-out Gina's video and you can make a card like this too.

Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow!
