It has been a while since I saw the shaving cream technique for the first time on the internet, of course I wanted to give it a try to create fun backgrounds for some of my projects. So today I am finally sharing a card that I made using this fun technique along with some Fun Stampers Journey products.
I used a disposable plate to put the shaving cream on along with a few drops of different Liquid Colors (Lemon Drop, Lemon Grass, Cool Pool and Catalina Splash). I used a disposable stirrer to doodle and mix the color and shaving cream well. Then, I placed a Whip Cream panel on top of it to grab some of the mix. With and old gift card I wiped off the cream to reveal the results . Quite easy, not so messy and super quick!
I trimmed off the background,matted it and adhered it over a card base. Then, I die cut the sentiment fromCool Pool Cardstock. This die is called Charming Thank You and it is a Host Exclusive product (Included in the new Spring Into Summer Mini Trends Catalog).

Since the words are quite thin, I die cut three layers of them with Whip Cream cardstock. I used the Journey Craft Glue to adhere them together and create dimension. Finally, I Used a double layer of Hexagons to be the frame of my sentiment and I embellished the card with some Sweet Candy Drops. Loved the technique, loved how my project turned out.

Since the Bloom This Way mini catalog was released, I have been having a a lot of fun creating with some of the great products included in it. If you are curious about this fabulous catalog, please click >>>HERE<<< so you can see it!
Today I am sharing a fun card using one of my favorites sets from this catalog: Story Book Occasions. So, I chose the little lamb image and I stamped it three times with Black Licorice Ink over a Whip Cream cardstock panel. To achieve the overlapped images I made a mask with a sticky note.
I stamped the pretty lady bug image and sentiment over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice Ink. I colored the bug with Candy Apple and River Stone Liquid Colors and I die cut both shapes with their matching dies. After that, I added Journey Glaze details and I let them dry.
One of the advantages of hosting a Fun Stampers party is, besides spending time with your friends creating, you have the opportunity to purchase some exclusive items like the Bug Love 🙂 If you are curious about how to host a party and get to know more about the fabulous Fun Stampers products, please be sure to visit their website and search for a coach in your area.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
The holidays are around the corner, and this is a great time to do a little bit of everything: planning, shopping, wrapping presents, cooking, baking, and why not?… create some cards 🙂 Today I am sharing a Christmas card, using some Fun Stampers Journeyproducts, take a look:
I used two of my favorites stamp sets suited for this season: Poinsettia Burst and Holiday Script. These two sets have a matching die set, which makes crafting easier. I used one of the papers that belong to Christmas Cheer Prints pack as the background panel. That specific print was my starting point to select the cardstock and ink colors.
I layered a piece of vellum, and a pierced rectangle on top of the background panel and then I simply layered two stamped poinsettias, a gold-embossed sentiment, and another pretty foliage element from the Timeless Foliage steel rule. Last, I complemented the card with some loops of Gold thread, a few rainbow drops, Journey tape and staples.
The FSJ Concept Designers have been having a little fun together (well, a LOT of fun) and today we want to show you what we’ve been working on! We had ourselves a little print swap. The six of us divided up into pairs. Three of the designers created an 8.5×11″ print on the Journey Gel Press. Then they cut their print in half and sent half to their partner. Each partner created a card using that print, and today we’re going to share what we’ve created! It was a really fun swap and I can’t wait to see all three of the prints, and how each designer used their print on a project!
I was one of the designers that made an 8.5×11″ print, and I created it by using warm acrylic paint tones (I was thinking of the Fall season ), with a pop of white. I really liked how it turned out ! Besides the acrylic paints, I used stencils and modeling paste. This is my half:
I mailed the other half of the print to my partner for the swap who is Michelle, and I have created this card with my half:
Hello friends! Today I am sharing a card that I created to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. This card features wonderful products from the Fun Stampers Journey Holidays catalog. Take a look:
I used one of the paper prints from the Fall Fest Prints as the background. Then I stamped some of the leaves from the Hello Fall stamp set using different colors of ink. I die cut those images with their matching dies.
I created the sentiment with the Happy Merry stamp set, and I want to point out that this is one of the sets you need to have for the holiday season. It has lots of sentiments that can be combined to make sentiments from Halloween to New Years. Anyway, once I have stamped it, I cut it into a strip and I matted it with a strip of Kraft cardstock. Then, I layered the leaves and sentiment over the card, and I used s few Rainbow Drops and Gold Thread to complete my card.

Hello friends. Autumn is my favorite season of the year. I like the colors of the surroundings, and I even like the type of weather, not so warm, not so cold, just perfect. Anyways, today I am back to share a Fall themed card featuring lots of Fun Stamper Journey products along with a fun technique.
I am not going to describe how I created this card on this post, since I made a short video showing all the steps from start to finish, as well as the fun stamping technique that I used. Check it out:
Here is another close up of my card, where you can see details of the technique 😀
I liked how this card turned out a lot. The leaves look really pretty in real life, and it is so easy to create!
I hope you feel inspired to use this technique on future projects, and please don’t forget to share what you have created!
