Hello everyone… I am so glad to be back here with you all! I hope you all have a blast and fun this Summer. Today I have a fun project to share with you when you take your Thursday Coffee Break at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.
My cards today are simple with die-cuts and I left them open for any occasion events. I started with a fun technique called marbling with shaving foam and re-inkers. You can watch the shaving cream full tutorial and video at Splictcoaststampers.
On this card, I use the Coffee Cup Silhouette Die and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies from STAMPlorations. And the re-inkers are from Taylored Expressions.
First, I added the shaving cream on a paper plate and then added the re-inker randomly on top of the cream. Using a stick, I mix the cream and re-inkers like when I baked marble cake 🙂
Next step, I added white cardstocks on top of the colored cream and gently I pushed it until the ink transferred to the cardstock. And using an old credit card, I scraped the shaving cream of the cardstock. And the marble is revealed under it. So cool!
As you can see, I got 2 different results. The first 3 on the top are from the first 3 times I dipped the cardstocks in. And the second 3 cards below are the ones I dipped in after I mixed all the colors. Check out the different look on each card:
I finished each card with some splatters of the Shimmer Spritz – Frost and Sparkle for extra shiny and sparkly on them.
With mixed media, I would say…you need to expect the unexpected results. You’ll be surprised with the result for sure. So…my coffee loving friends, have you tried a new technique this Summer?
Thank you so much for taking a coffee break with me today and I hope you see you again next week. Have a fabulous Thursday!
