Kelly's Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Celebrating 5 years


Thank you to all who have joined me from the amazing Fi Cobbin's blog post which helps celebrate Kelly Kent's 5 years as a demonstrator with Stampin' Up!

The theme of this blog hop is everything HAPPY

Below you will see a card I have made using the increasingly popular shaving foam technique. It really is a simple way to be super creative on a card. The beauty of this technique is EVERY card is an individual, whilst the colours may remain the same the shaving cream definitely changes the layout of the inks.

I love the effect the background has when originally it was only a plain white card. 

For this card the background colours I have used are: inks Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush. The ribbon and card are the lovely new Berry Burst.



























The second card uses only 2 ink colours - Real Red for the background and highlighting colour is Basic Black. I have used the Fine Tip Glue to emboss the brand new Happy Birthday die and all edges and the ribbon have been 'glittered' with Wink of Stella.

Like to learn techniques like this and MORE....feel free to message me to join my monthly craft class, held on the first Friday night of the month in Mitcham, Victoria.

Now you are off to see the talented Holly Stene's blog. Congratulations to Kelly Kent for her 5th Birthday with Stampin' Up!

  12. This is a technique I have never tried! Your cards both look beautiful, I like the sentiment that you have used the glue on to make it look enameled!
