Remarkable You with the Shaving Cream Technique – Video



Written Tutorial


 

Hey Stampers!! Okay so I have to admit this is a really cool technique, and it’s fun. I bet kids would love to do it with you, but I have to warn you it can get a little messy so wear gloves and aprons. Definitely trust me when I say this a pretty cool Shaving Cream Technique creating the really swirls for a wonderful back ground for a card, or any craft project that you do.

Just remember to play with it, and figure out the color combinations that you like.

Happy Crafting!

Base

  1. Cut Melon Mambo Cardstock 4 1/4″ x 11″, and score at 5 1/2″, and fold.

Shaving Cream Technique

  1. Cut either Photo Paper or Glossy Cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″ or leave it at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, and trim it after the technique, to have some really cool scraps to use for other projects.
  2. Place a paper Plate on top of a cookie sheet, and be sure to have some paper towels ready to go.
  3. Have a Food Scraper or a Small Squeegee ready to scrap up the Shaving Cream.
  4. Squirt Shaving Cream on the plate as big as the card you want to put on it, and smooth it out.
  5. Squirt drops of Flirty Flamingo Ink refill, Melon Mambo Ink Refill, and Rich Razzleberry Ink Refill, if you are going for the color combination I used. Tip: Spread out the drops of Ink Refill, because the dark color will pop out the most. And remember to leave more white than color.
  6. Using a toothpick, or a kabob stick, swirl the colors around.
  7. Then placing the cardstock glossy side down and pressing eveyr corner to get a good coverage. Pull up quickly.
  8. Swipe the shaving cream of the paper, and set aside to dry.
  9. When dry, trim of a 1/4″ from each long side and then short side, if you cut it to 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ inches in the beginning. So then it would be 4″ x 5 1/4″ after it’s trimmed.
  10. Then adhere to the base.

Layers

  1. Cut Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 3″ x 4″, and adhere down to the base.
  2. Then cut Whisper White Cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.
  3. Using Memento Ink Stamp the flower straight down and straight up. Towards the upper part of the Whisper White Cardstock, leaving room for the sentiment.
  4. Squeeze the Melon Mambo Ink Pad, and take a Blender Pen and pick up the color, Then outline the outer edges of the petals and the color the inside of the petals. Tip: you can use marker scribbled on to a  clear block and pick it up with a blender pen if you don’t want have the coordinating Ink Pad color you want.
  5. Using Old Olive ink pad, repeat step 4, except you will color the stem.
  6. Then Stamp Sentiment below the flower with Memento Ink.
  7. For added sparkle, color the petals with Wink of Stella.
  8. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere to  Rich Razzleberry layer.
