Feature FRIDAY VIDEO - Shaving Cream Technique

OSAT BLOG HOP - Let It Snow!

Blog Hop


Welcome to the OSAT November Blog Hop! Our theme for the hop is Let it Snow. 

You may have just arrived here from the talented Kim Smith's blog or maybe you're starting with my blog - whichever it may be - please make sure you click on the NEXT button at the bottom to continue on the journey to see what the rest of the 17 talented bloggers have created!

I decided to go with one of my favorite snowflake stamp sets and a shaving cream technique for my LET IT SNOW themed card. Put some shaving cream in a shallow pan, add a few dots of re-inker (I used Bermuda Bay), swirl it around and push your Whisper White layer of card stock into the mixture - wipe off the excess shaving cream and WAAAA LAAAA! It's just like magic!




The Softly Falling embossing folder adds this beautiful texture to my card front...and of course the shaving cream technique looks good enough to eat - right??? 



Here's a close up of my swirly deliciousness! This technique is really easy! You can stop back by on Friday where I'll feature a video showing you just how to do it!




I love to decorate the insides of my cards and OH MY don't forget those envelopes!




  • Bermuda Bay 11 x 4-1/4 scored at 5-1/2 & 3-1/8 x 4-1/8
  • Whisper White 2 @ 4 x 5-1/4 & 3 x 4
  • White Scraps for the snowflakes


And here's my super easy and fun little matching candy box. This one has a SURPRISE when you open it - a snowflake pops right up!!!! SURPRISE!





  • Box Base 7-3/4 x 7-3/4 scored at 1-1/4 & 2-1/2 on all four sides
  • Outside Band 2-7/8 x 9-1/2 scored at 1-1/4, 4-1/8, 5-3/8 & 8-1/4


 Here's a quick little video showing you how to make this Pop Up Box:



Funny story...as a demonstrator...I find myself at the store looking for candy and other items that I can use in my stamping. It's always fun to dream up cute projects using fun items. I found those Lindor truffles in BERMUDA BAY! How very cool is that?

Kelly, OMG... I love the marbled look on your card and the pop up box is awesome.


Super , super nice kit ! This box is perfect for Lindt chocolate ( size and colour in this case Bermuda Bay , total WoW ) and the little pop up . . . such a cute little surprise ! The card is very coooool. Love the background with the shaving cream technique and last but not least your video is the best. You always make it look easy and fun. Merci Kelly !

Gorgeous set Kelly! I have wanted to try the shaving cream technique for a while now and you have certainly inspired me! That marbled look was perfect with the snowflakes! Your little treat box is adorable and how cool that the treats came in Bermuda Bay! :)
