It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like - yes Christmas!

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
Just Us Girls

Vicki is our Host this week and chosen this
awesome Christmas Themed Photo.

So many elements you can choose from here.
What caught your eye?

I went with the colour in the background
and tried a new way with shaving cream.
You ink your acrylic block then add the shaving cream
scloosh (is that a word?) then swipe it on to
your card stock. Wipe away the excess and repeat
if you need to. I used Tim's Festive Berries.
 To add a bit of interest I then randomly inked a
SU stamp that looked like snow
with Memento Rhubarb and heat embossed Silver
around the middle.
Attached my glittery Kaisercraft Die Cuts
adding some Starform stickers to hang them.
Finished with the Starform Merry Christmas sentiment.
Funny how those out of vogue stickers 
still come in handy sometimes.
Oh and there are 2 gems attached to the gems.

Pop over and see what our Guest Linda
and the Gang created.
Hope you can spare a wee bit of play time
to add your card to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in.

Fabulous inspiration from the inspiration photo Ina. Love the unique and fun technique and the pop of silver looks stunning x.

Very festive, Ina. I've used shaving foam but not in that way. It can be messy but the results are fabulous.

Vicki Dutcher said...

So pretty. I think we both were inspired by the same thing :)

Cheri said...

Absolutely gorgeous, SS. I've never heard of the background shaving cream technique you described, but I love the results. I must give it a try.

Macimbalo said...

That's a really fun background - will have to give that a try! Fun take on the photo Ina. Love the glittery baubles.

Fun background Ina! I have not tried that way before and I think scloosh is a great word! LOL You really have a beauty here this week!

Linda said...

Ina, beautiful shaving cream background. Such a lovely card with your glittery ornaments. Thanks for having me as GD this month.

Loll said...

Gorgeous card Ina. I have not tried shaving cream with an acrylic block. Sounds like it might be less messy then using it with re-inkers. Need to give that a try. Your background is gorgeous. Beautiful colours and look amazing with the silver glitter ornaments. xx
