HSS Technique Challenge #31- Shaving Cream!

Good Morning Stampers! I am so thrilled to share with you this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique ChallengeSHAVING CREAM!!! This is a SUPER easy and fun technique to do on any project. HERE is a brief tutorial on how to create it for yourself.

Today I created a card for this weeks challenge. I know it is sort of more basic than I am used to, I admit that combining this technique with a project was challenging for me, but I finally came up with something that was simple but fun. I apologize thought, the lighting and shadow of my photo box made it even more difficult to take a clear picture of my project as well. But lets see what we can see… :)

I used melon mambo, rich razzleberry, perfect plum and a retired (pale plum, but you can hardly see that color in my sample- oh well, sometimes less is more-right?) I hope you can see that once my shaving cream design dried I embossed (in white embossing powder) my stamped image- this is a very old retired happy birthday set. I admit it was one of my first sets that I got when I first joined Stampin’ Up! and it is one of my fav’s!

I layered my focal piece onto a larger Pretty in Pink piece and mounted them both onto my card base. I don’t know if you can tell in the photo but I stamped the base of the card with my large paisley background stamp that has long since been retired too… I can’t seem to get rid of that wonderfully large stamp! Up close the card looks as if the card stock is textured, very cool!

I finished off the card with a simple sentiment and can I tell you how fun I think this font is. I know it is totally old and some might say outdated, but I like how funky and fun it is. I finished the entire project off with a few brads and BAM- funky technique birthday card in a flash!

Well I hope you enjoyed my project for you today, PLEASE come by HSS and play along. Submit your shaving cream creation, it doesn’t have to be a card- it can be anything using that technique. It is super fun and delightful to see all the projects everyone submits. You get great inspiration from everyone too- so come on over and play along! Until next time~ TTFN
