Different Shaving Cream Technique

Shaving Cream TechniqueI recently received a YouTube video  from a friend about a shaving cream technique and it was one I hadn't tried ... sooooo I had to get out the old shaving cream and give it a try ... oh I used Tim Holtz black soot ink for my ink pad and it worked great ...

These are for Swaps

The online group I am in had 3 swaps I wanted to try this month and these are the results ...

More cards but not Christmas ...

I was running short or regular cards so had to get some done ...

Did a bit of scraps and glitter work along with dry embossing and gold leaf

Embossing with gold super fine powder and some pearl-x in water to spritz flowers and matt

these are doing Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks and spritzing with water then doing the droplets of water ... quick easy and pretty ... oh the black flowers are die cuts as well as the Happy Birthday

I think it's time to make some cards ...

These I can use for Birthday, Get Well, Thank You, Just Because .... I need more of this type since my supply is running low ....

I forgot to mention that the backgrounds are made with the Distressed Oxide Inks, kind of fun to work with ...

A few more Christmas Cards

Think I am thru designing and just need to settle on one to do several cards ...

This one was fun to do ... after cutting out the Tim Holtz tree trunks thinlette die I got out one of his stencils that reminded me of snow falling and did some embossing paste with it and dusted "Distressed Rock Candy" glitter and gently pressed it into the paste ... let that dry and drug my "Faded Jeans" distress ink onto my falling snow embossing folder then embossed a white cardstock for the background ... when all was dry I mounted them onto a silver cardstock card

Now it's time to start Christmas cards

These are a few I have done so far ... simple and fun ...

Seventh Altered Book of this RR

This is our last book of 2017 RR .... this one was something I had a bit of a problem with because her theme was "Favorite line for Favorite Book" ... well I have many books and lines to chose from but difficulty picking ones ... I ended up picking Gone with the Wind but had a problem with just one line so .... this is what I did for it .... told you I had a problem picking just one ..... lol

now the next spread was easier ... it's "Romeo and Juliet" but still had a problem with just one line .... so

Sixth Altered Book in this RR

Well we are getting close to being finished and I will miss doing these ... this lady chose "Victorian" as her theme and I chose to do "Hats of the World" and "Ladies that Lunch"

Fifth Altered Book in this RR

Her theme was "Pocket full of" ... whatever you wanted ... mine are flowers and butterflies ...

Fourth Altered Book in this RR

Her theme was the Jungle and I love that so it was pretty easy for me ... I went to the Amazon where the beautiful birds are then to Africa where the Great Silverback Gorillas are ... it was so much fun to make the birds fly off the page and the Silverback to look like he is coming out to get you ... LOL

Third Book in this RR

Her theme was "Little Black Dress" ... I just couldn't resist using designs of great costume designer Edith Head ... then I decided to have lots of little black dresses on sewing dummy's ...

This one is Mother Nature and her Fairy helpers - my drawn faces

This one is Beauty in Simplicity - done with Tim Holtz crayons and Inks
