I wish you could see this in person as the photo doesn't really do it justice. :-( In fact my camera kept distorting the card.
Just For Fun has several Merry Christmas stamps and I had a difficult time choosing just one. I finally decided on this Merry Christmas stamp. I stamped with Stazon Ink on vellum and then heat embossed using holographic embossing powder. Holographic embossing power is a little more expensive than some of the other embossing powders but I love how it looks using a color ink to stamp with.
Drop drops of reinker, water color paint or alcohol ink. I've use these successfully. Then with a straw or even the end of a paint brush make a design. You can then place your card stock on top and pull a print or go onto the next step.
I took a gift card with a zero balance and used it to make my design in the shaving cream and then pulled a print. When there was no longer enough shaving cream left on the lid to make prints I went ahead and loaded my gift card with the mixed shaving cream and used it with a couple of different stencils.
I hope you will try this shaving cream technique. I would love to see your creations. Feel free to post them at:
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
