Tuesday Turn Around and Wednesday WOW! Shaving Cream Technique

I started making my new card in this post on Tuesday...
while I was thinking about this card!  A fave of mine!

Because I made Tuesday....

And then I went to the store and bought some shaving cream tonight! I did start the card earlier in the evening, but I didn't finish it until a little after midnight....so this card has become a 2 dayer!

It is now the....
too! LOL!!!

Here's how I did it...
I sprayed a small plastic container with shaving cream.  I then put peekaboo peach reinker in the shaving cream ...about 10 drops all around and used my finger to swirl it.  Then I placed a piece of whisper white cardstock face down on top of the shaving cream.  I wiped the shaving cream off with a paper towel and here's what my results looked like.  I used tranquil tide, peekaboo peach and berry burst classic ink pads with the banners for you photopolymer stamp set and dies. The designer series paper strip is from the fresh florals designer series paper pack.   I embossed the you amaze me greeting, fussy cut and adhered to the banner popping it off the circle with the stampin dimensionals.  I used the pearls and whisper white baker's twine to finish it off.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Not only is the background pretty cool!   Here's a great way for you to create a fall card and not use fall stamps!  The colors scream fall!

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used...

Map It Monday Thanks for Everything Card


Here's the sketch I used from The Paper Players this week.  Such a great versatile sketch.

And here's my card...

Here's how I did it...
I cut a piece of lemon lime twist cardstock in half at 51/2.  And scored at 41/4" I used the naturally eclectic designer series paper and cut it at 4" by 51/2".  I cut the strip at 17/8 and then cut the banner end with my snips.  I used the Just Add Color Designer Series Paper with the feathers on and watercolored it using my aquapainter with the classic ink pads (soft sky, tranquil tide and lemon lime).  I started with the lightest color and then went to the darkest color.  I cut another piece of the naturally eclectic designer series paper at 31/4X 21/2 and stamped thanks for everything with the stampin up archival basic black ink pad.  I waited for the feather to dry and then cut out with my snips.  I cut about a 6" piece of basic black baker's twine.  I popped the feather up with stampin dimensionals.  After the feather was adhered, I added clear wink of stella to give a little bit of glitter and shine.  You can find all the supplies I used at the bottom of the post.  Just click on the supply item to find out more about it!

The greeting on this card says so much and yet is so simple! I am truly thankful for the people that are in my life! And those that cross my path through the big blogger world.  Life is just so full of bends and surprises along the way!
