Shaving Foam Technique: Tutorial

Make an anchor card using the Shaving Foam Technique and Stampin' Up! ink refills. Full step by step instructions.

Clear Blocks and Shaving Foam... 
Who loves an easy papercrafting technique! I do!

It was so easy to create this gorgeous card, and a lot of fun, too. The Shaving Foam Technique is really easy, a little bit messy, lots of fun, and you need very few supplies. I'm going to show you how to create this card. Follow the step-by-step instructions below.

What will I need to create this card? 
You will need some good quality Shaving Foam. I choose Superdrug's Men's Shaving Foam because all of Superdrug's own brand toiletries and household products are not tested on animals and are therefore cruelty free. They have the stamp of approval from Cruelty Free International - you're looking for the leaping bunny logo if you're not sure:

You will also need the supplies listed in the ticker below: 





How to create your masterpiece! Step-by-step instructions: 

1. Cut your Whisper White Card - a card base and an extra piece for the front (as per the picture). Set your card front aside, ready for stamping.

2. Have your shaving foam, Clear Block D and Real Red, Pacific Point and Night of Navy ink refill bottles to hand. You can see our whole range HERE.

3. Drop a few drops of ink onto the clear block. You can use whatever size block you like.

4. Put a small amount of shaving foam onto the block. With a knife or spatula spread the foam about, mixing the colour a little.

5. Stamp the clear block onto the card front. Leave for a moment, then scrape off the excess foam. I use a piece of scrap card, or an old credit card. Leave aside to dry.

6. Stamp your sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet and Pacific Point ink, then fussy cut out.

7. Stamp your anchor using the Seaside Shore stamp set in Night of Navy.

8. Assemble your card.


Easy peasy!
It really is that simple. Just create a foamy mess on your blog using the shaving foam and the ink and then stamp away. Of course you can create all sorts of different colour combinations, and the beauty of this technique is that you will never, ever create two projects that look the same.

You can use this technique for all sorts of cardmaking, scrapbooking, home decor and memory keeping projects.
