Shaving Cream

For my last stamp club I revisited a technique that I had shown a couple years ago. My club has changed so much it is time to bring back some of the old techniques. This is the shaving cream technique. I t gives a beautiful background and is so easy to do.

Put a layer of the foam shaving cream in a pie plate about 1/2 in thick. Drop in a few drops of re-inker and swirl it with a knife. Lay your cardstock face down in the shaving cream making sure it is well covered. Pull it up scrap the shaving cream off with a spatula and the wipe gentlly with a paper towel. Let dry for a bit and then you can stamp directly over the shaving cream design or us as a background.

This was a big hit with my girls.

Wagon Full of Fun

Yesterday I got my Spring Occasions pre-order. Tonight I got to play with my new toys. I love the new stamp set "Wagon Full of Fun". It can be used for so many occasions and I can also picture it on scrapbook pages. Just haven't had a chance to try it scrapbooking yet. The new DSP paper is beautiful too. I used the white chunky glitter for the frosting on the cupcake, It looks almost eatable.

Felt Flowers Prayer

Tonight I played with my felt flowers and my new "Thoughts and Prayers" stamp set. I also ran the main card through the Big Shot with a texture plate. You can't really see it with the scan but in real life it is beautiful. The felt flowers turned out so good I plan to play with them a bit more and see what I come up with.
