Hi Friends,

 Did my title get your attention?  LOL

 Well, over at Just Us Girls this week my good friend Sharyn is hosting

 and she challenged us girls to break out the shaving cream!

 If you have never made your own background paper before using this

 technique your missing out!  Here is a great Link from Gina K to get you started.

I had so much fun I made 6 pieces of paper in all different colors for future use!

I also want to thank Barbara Campbell for being such a wonderful Guest Designer

with us this past month!  You out did yourself GIRL!

I paired this technique up with this simple and versatile Sketch over at Seize the Sketch!


Along with the Patriotic color challenge of Red, White and Blue from the Mod Squad.


A few card details:

The stamps I used for this set were a mixture of Stampin UP-Simply Stars

and the smaller stars are from a Gina K stamp set called Out West 2.

I saw this quote this week in the newspaper and loved it so much

that I decided to print it from my computer!

I made the dashes with a pen!

Now,  Please head on over to Just Us Girls and check out my creative teammates

work and break out that shaving cream an ink and join us!

Then stop by the Mod Squad and Seize the Sketch too!

Hope to see you over at all these wonderful places!

  11. Nancy, I just love this card and the shaving cream technique that you did. I must remember to cut out pieces to use after the technique is done. Sometimes I think that a strong BG can take away for the rest of the card, but you showed me that it doesn’t have to. Grrrreat job!
