Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop December 2018

Hi all! Thank you for joining us at Kylie's Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for December! Can you believe the year is almost over?! The older I get, the faster time goes.
On Black Friday I had a couple of friends join me and we created cards with shaving cream. Fun, old school technique which we updated with a more modern twist.

Be prewarned! This is a messy technique!
To create these cards we used a styrofoam plate with a mound of shaving cream in which we dripped several drops of re-inkers into it: Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight. Swirled the drops through the shaving cream with a pallete knife.

I cut a piece of 8 1/2" X 11"Whisper White thick cardstock into fourths. I took a piece and skimmed it across the plate of shaving cream. You can use your pallete knife to smooth out flat. See the top 2 left pictures below. For the card I am submitting today, I used the medallion stencil from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. I skimmed the shaving cream diagonally across the stencil and then sprinkled glitter on it. The shaving cream doesn't adhere the glitter totally, but enough remains to give a nice shine.
Other option - use the negative from the die cuts of thinlits like a stencil and run shaving cream over it. See the Rooted in Nature tree and leaves.
Hope you give this technique a try. You can easily get carried away!
Please continue with the hop. Here are all the "hoppers"!

Kylie's International Blog Highlight December 2018


Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for December. Our theme is Gratitude & Thankfulness. I am blessed in many ways and one that I am very thankful for is the friendships I have made through Stampin' Up! It really has expanded my world.

I created my card using shaving cream. Yes, a cheap can of men's white foamy shaving cream will make hundreds of cards. Many years ago I took a Stampin' Up! class and we used the shaving cream technique. I still remember how much fun it was! Although this is old school, I hope I put a modern spin on the card.


I used 3 re-inkers with several drops each onto the shaving cream: Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight. Swirl the colors through the shaving cream with a pallete knife or toothpick. Then using the brick stencil from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, I swiped diagonally with the colored shaving cream on thick Whisper White. Almost like frosting a cake.

Let it dry and you have the most beautiful marble effect. Think of all the variation of colors you could create with Stampin' Up! re-inkers!

Here is another couple of cards made the same way, but I used the Nature's Roots Framelits. I ran the tree through the Big Shot with thick card stock and used the negative as a stencil. In case of the leaf, I ran it through Big Shot three times to create the negative stencil. I love the CAS (clean and simple) look of the cards with lots of white space.
Thank you for sticking with me to the end and if you like my card, please vote for me at this link:

More Freshly Made Sketches 366





When I work on a card challenge, I very seldom only make one card. Usually three or four. I was working on Freshly Made Sketches 366 and used the same layout for all the cards. 

In this case, I used up most of my shaving cream paper I created by punching out/die cutting balloons from it. It's always nice to have extra birthday cards on hand which are good for anyone!
