Another Post and Another Technique

As promised, I am back for the third day in a row. I know, you simply cannot believe it! I have a few fun things to share with you today. First, as also promised, I have two more shaving cream cards. The first one is dedicated to Sunghee Chon of Little Potato Studio. A couple of weeks ago, she had some blog candy - the "Just Because" stamp set from a*muse studios. And I won! It is a gorgeous stamp set and I was thrilled to win it. I made this card using that beautiful set. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black on the outside, and repeated them with blackberry (a*muse) on the inside. If you like it, give Sunghee a little love, because she is a kind and generous soul.
The next card uses more of the shaving cream paper. I stamped the large image from "Sunny Side of Life" (at least, I think that's the name). I also added some of the butterflies and the sentiment. Can you see that I love butterflies?The next project I have was inspired by a project that I saw on Carolyn's Creative Corner. I stamped an image from a*muse "Charming Gardeners" (one of my absolute fave sets) onto scratch art paper with VersaMark, then embossed the image with sparkly gold EP. I then carefully scratched the black off of the inside of the flower images to reveal the colors. Next, I used clear EP over the entire sheet to keep anymore black from scratching off. I was so excited that I made another, and it is quite different. I cropped the papers and made them into simple cards. I absolutely love these and can't wait to do some more. If you decide to try it, let me know so that I can see what you come up with! Have a great week, my friends.

Gorgeous cards! Especially love the gold embossing- I never remember to reach for my embossing powder.
