Hello again! Welcome back for another weekly class catch-up. This week, we played with the Marble technique, using shaving cream. You will need cheap shaving cream/foam (I used Woolworths Home Brand – about $3 a can), and various ink refills. Have you tried this technique before? It’s quite fun, but a little bit messy! Have a look at this tutorial by Stampin’ Up! to try it yourself :)
For the first card, we used Lemon Lime Twist as the card base. On a piece of Whisper White which we marbled with this technique, we used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight inks. The card was dried off and stamped with a retired stamp set called Happy Birthday Everyone, using Basic Gray Archival ink.
Enamel shapes and a raised banner finished off the card.
For the second card, we used a card base of Whisper White. This was layered with 3 squares, cut from Whisper White, using Stitched Shapes Framelits. On these squares, we adhered butterflies cut from a piece of Whisper White using Bold Butterfly Framelits. The cardstock had been marbled with Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, and Pink Pirouette inks. The centre butterfly has a banner of Berry Burst card, and Silver Metallic Thread underneath it.
Sequins and rhinestones finished off the card.
For the last card, we used a card base of Pink Pirouette. This was layered with a piece of thick Whisper White that had been heat embossed with a sentiment from Sheltering Tree, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and had a large butterfly cut from it. Underneath this was a piece of Whisper White card, which had been marbled with Pink Pirouette and Crisp Canteloupe ink. Crisp Canteloupe is a retired In Color, so if you don’t have it; you could use Calypso Coral, just sparingly so it doesn’t overpower the softness of this card.
The card was finished off with some gold twine.
Thank you for popping in to have a look at our creations! ‘Til next time x
