Today’s tutorial onย  splitcoast is for Faux Shaving Cream.

It’s a quick and fun technique to add a marbled look to your image.

The butterfly is from Kind Thoughts.

I inked it first with Pumpkin Pie.

Next I inked up the wheel Solitude with Real Red ink and twisted the wheel over my stamp to create the marbled look.

I used the Real Red Marker to trace the outline of the stamp, huffed it to re-moisten and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock.


The inspiration for this card came from Saturday’s Inspiration challenge ย on Splitcoast.

I really liked the pattern of the bedding and the color combination.

My card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Taken with Teal cardstock folded in half, followed by a 3 3/4″ Chocolate chip square with corners that were punched with the Ticket Corner punch.


The corners of the 3 1/2″ River Rock square were ticket corner punched as well.

The square itself was stamped with the background stamp Stitched in River Rock and the edges were paper pierced.

I added a double photo corner on the top right.

The red photo corner was stamped in real red ink with the butterfly to add a little bit of texture. Three More Mustard brads were added over it. (Did I mention that I would love brads in ALL colors??? )

I added scallops to a 1″ x 3 1/2″ Very Vanilla cardstock strip and adhered it over the River Rock square. Over that I taped a 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ paper pierced strip of Pumpkin Pie and I tied 5/8″ real red grosgrain ribbon around it.

I taped a 1 3/8″ Taken with Teal paper pierced circle on a Chocolate Chip scallop circle. I mounted the butterfly on top of that by adding dimensionals under the wings.

The sentiment is from Kind Thoughts and is stamped with Chocolate Chip on the bottom left of the card. I added two 1/4″ Pumpkin Pie circles next to the saying and topped them with real red brads.

Last I stamped the solid flower in Pumpkin Pie and stamped the outlined flower over it in Real Red. I cut the flower out, taped it to the card with a dimensional and added a red brad in the center.
