WOYWW 332 & Shaving Cream Technique

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,  To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.  Titus 2:3-5

Happy WOYWW!  Am late again! We are all showing our desks as we do every Wednesday as part of What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday.   If you check out Julia's Stamping Ground, you will find some more deskers from all over the world!  So here is what I my desk looked like this  week!  I experimented using the Shaving Cream Technique as shown on a tutorial on Splitcoast Stamper.  Surprisingly, after you scrape your shaving cream off your card, it is real smooth.  :)

Dropped re-inkers into Shaving cream and swirled around the colors.
I  put papers on  and pressed into the cream, then  I  scraped off with a craft stick for various backgrounds.

This is how I used one of the backgrounds.  I added die cuts from shimmer card stock and added rhinestones.

Thank you for stopping by!  


  1. I've used this technique and loved it. I really like the colors you used - they're such a pretty pastel.

  3. Hi Sharon and thanks for visiting my desk. Oh what fun with the shaving cream -we did it years ago and I still have a stack of bases I made...they smell nice too. Enjoy your week Cheers RobynO#24

  4. It's such a fun technique isn't it?! Fab backgrounds and as Robyn says they smell nice too! Take care Zo xx 31

  5. Love this technique, Sharon, the results are lovely and, bonus, it always smells divine too. The card you made using one of your pieces as a background is beautiful. Thanks for your earlier visit. Glad you liked our picturesque fishing village - we are so lucky to live in a beautiful area and, yes, I now have even more photos to scrap :) Have a great week.

  6. Who knew shaving cream could be so versatile! Brilliant effects. Happy crafting :-) Max #47

  7. Belated Happy WOYWW! Thanks very much for visiting me!
    My illustrations in my prayer journal have helped me with slowing down to reflect on each word of the verse I am illustrating but after I finish the journal, I hardly get to see the illustrations again. So when I heard about bible journaling, I decided to try it out. But I know what you mean about mulling over the bible art journal thing. Personally, I would make sure that the words of the bible are not covered over with my illustration. For me, the bible is first a bible so I'm not going to make it my art journal. I like to think of it as something I will pass on to my daughter, filled with my art and the reflections that went with making each illustration.
    Your shaving cream project looks wonderful! Who would have thought you can use shaving cream for card making!
    Blessings, peggy aplSEEDS

  8. I have never tried this technique. What a fun way to create some pretty background papers.

  9. Love all the pretty colors. I haven't done this technique in a really long time.

  10. Popping by to say 'Hi' and see if there are vacation pictures yet. I love the shaving cream technique. Taught hit to my sil while she was visiting from OK last month. She had a blast! Creative Blessings! Kelly

  11. Hi Sharon. Thanks for dropping by my blog for T yesterday. I'm not playing in WOYWW this week, but wanted to say how much I also like that shaving cream technique. The paper smells SO good afterward, too, and it's so, so soft. One thing I might add is, instead of removing the shaving cream with a craft stick, I lay another piece of CS over the first, then remove it. I find I get two images and they are always so different. Then I scrape my shaving cream off after that.

    I would LOVE to have you join us for T any Tuesday you wish. We are a small, but very friendly group, so please do join us anytime. Just like Julia asks you to show your desk, I ask that you, in some way, tie your post back to a drink, any drink! Again, we would LOVE to have you.


Thank you for your comments! I really appreciate them.
