From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

That is sooo awesome! Thanks for the great idea! I was just wondering what would happen if you used the shaving cream left over from this project. (yes I'm weird.) I bet the food coloring would leave some strange patterns on your skin!

Hahaha! Interesting thinking... might have to get back to you on that. No, only kidding. Food dye seems to like to stay on my skin for days... I have such pale skin.

I didn't just stamp it onto the paper because I thought it would be hard to see. You could just stamp it onto the card, I'm sure. My The sun card was for an elderly woman, so I didn't want it to look too sloppy. As for the acrlic paint idea, I tried that before the food colouring. I didn't like the results as much... and with food colouring, you can literally make any colour you want.. you don't have to have it in your paint collection.

or colgate

Yeah, actually, that was the shaving cream I used. I don't like that stuff for my skin, but for cards, it works great! I'm going to look into a similar thing that doesn't have a scent. I mean, the aloe smell it gives off is very mild and hard to pick up on, but it would be better if there was no scent at all. Anyone know of a scentless shaving cream? Heh.

I used Colgate (my Dad's) so my cards smell a little, umm, manly at the moment. I'm hoping airing them out will help.

I also wanted to say thanks again for this nifty idea, I've done it twice now and it's soooo much fun! It just looks so amazing! I also tried with just one color a moment ago and I like how that looks, too. Kind of elegant. Just wanted to share Smiley

Also, I told my boyfriend what I was doing when he called and he thought I was nuts  Tongue Guess I'll just have to send him one so he can see the awesomeness in person  Wink Thanks again!

Yeah, don't feel bad, shortestkitty... everyone thought I was nuts when they heard what I was doing. A word of advice: do not try to explain to your friend why you are using shaving cream to make greeting cards if they call you. You'll never hear the end of it. At least not until you give them a card with their birthday gift... that will shut them up.

I like the one-colour idea... I will definatly try that. Do you have any pics?

so i'm trying it and i'm at the point that you have to wipe it off.... and it looks awful. what am i doing wrong? first i just laid the paper towl on the shaving creamed paper then that didn't really work so i started wiping it off. and that made it worse.

maybe if i just leave the shaving cream on do you think that would be ok? cuz it seems like it would look kinda cool if it dried this way.

also it came to mind that i might be using the wrong paper.... is there a special paper to use? i'm using some hard computer paper.

Well, first, just dip it into the cream and DON'T put any paper towels on top of it. Let it sit for a few mintutes. THEN wipe it off. Paper doesn't matter... virtually any type of paper would probably work. I've done cardstock and paper envelopes so far. Just keep experimenting... that's all I can suggest.

alright i think i figured out my problem... i thought there was going to a texture to the card... and there isn't right? its just flat? see i havn't seen these hallmark cards yet so i hae no idea what i'm doing. but mine are coming out good now. thank you for the idea! but some how yours still looks a ton better than mine...  Undecided what ever.

Nope, there's no texture. Marbled cards are becoming very popular... and so are marble gift bags, etc. I'm going to try a gift bag soon. But it'll have to have more of a paper consistancy, I think, rather than that shiney paper. I'll hunt around for a plain white one and then do one side at a time, letting it dry. If anyone beats me to this, post, please!

More cards, please!

Yes, I did this again. The first card I made will be given to my friend for her birthday. It was impossible to craft up something for her (my one friend already made her a tie skirt, she doesn't use a purse, and her room has no theme), so I was forced to buy her something. I chose a really nice (and expensive...) bonsi plant kit. So, I needed an asian-themed card. Hello shaving cream and dragon stamp! Thanks to shortestkitty for the one-colour idea! I love my one-colour card!



Of course, I made a matching envelope...
Front

Back


And, since this is a very addictive activity, I made another one... this time using two colours: blue and yellow. They mixed together to make the green you see. Cool, huh? Oh, and that's a moon stamp in the corner...

Matching envelope:

Back


Anyone else done this and have pics? Please share... I'd love to see your ideas and designs.

hey thank you so much for clearing that up for me. i did it with the girl i babysit and she thought it was really cool. yet how do you get yours to be so cool? do you dab the shaving cream off? cuz i was just wiping it. i wish i had a camera here (my dad as it at the moment) cuz then i could show you mine. but what ever its still really awesome and they smell wicked good because i sprayed them with some of that room smelling stuff i don't know what you call it. the stuff that makes rooms smell good.

I just wipe it off... not sure how else to explain it. I don't dab it, though. Can't wait to see some pics! I might have to try spraying something on mine... not sure if the scents would mix well, though... haha.
