In the shaving cream technique you can use a paper plate or some flat container that can fit your glossy white paper. Spray you shaving cream in your plate, spray enough to cover the size of your glossy paper. Then take your ink refills and drop in the shaving cream. As many or as few as you like. Take a tooth pick or some object to swirl thru the shaving cream. When you get it the way you want place your glossy paper, glossy side down into the shaving cream. Kind of mash it into the shaving cream. You can lift it up and make sure there is shaving cream on all of it, place it back in if not all covered. Then lift it up and take some paper towels and wipe off the excess shaving cream. Let it dry and it is ready to use.
If you have any questions please email and I will help.
Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

For this technique you need to take two pieces of glossy paper(cut to the size you need) and drop two or three drops from each of the different color of ink refills on one piece of the glossy paper. Then spray two or three squirts of water on the drops of refills. Then spray your blank piece of glossy paper with the water. Then lay the two pieces on top of each other and mash it together until the two pieces or covered in the ink. No two pieces will ever look the exact same. After it is covered good, pull them apart and wipe across the top of paper with a paper towel, this is to take off the excess ink. Sometimes this part can be very messy. Have plenty of paper towels on hand and maybe come gloves. Let the pieces dry. Then stamp your floral stamp with versa mark on the glossy paper. Cover with black embossing powder and heat with heat tool. Then cut the floral out with sissors. You can do the same with the other piece or just use it for another project. You can also use it just for a background.

Soot Technique

Soot Technique

Stamp Set: Embace Life, Rough Texture Jumbo Roller

Paper: Basic Black, Kraft, Glossy White

Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White

Accessories: Silver Brads, Candle, Spray Sealer


You need the glossy white card stock and a candle. Have the shiny side of the card stock facing the flame of the candle. Keep it moving over the candle and checking it for how much soot is on it. Please be careful not to burn yourself or catch the paper on fire. Just keep checking until you have the right about of soot you want on the paper. It doesn't have to be all black, leave some white ares. Keep fingers off the side that the soot is on. Take your image stamp and press into the soot. If making more than one, clean you stamp between each time. The soot is on the stamp set so you need to clean for the next image on to the soot. Then take you spray sealer and spray little on the soot piece. Just make sure all of it is covered. If not the soot will rub off. Let dry and adhere to your card. Each piece will look different. Try this techique with different stamp set.

For each “season” complete the following steps:
Adhere DP onto the coordinating colored cardstock.Adhere the black matting to the white calendar strip. Adhere the matted calendar strip to the colored cardstock (the bottom edge of the black mat should be approx 3/8” from the bottom of the colored cardstock..to allow room for holes that will be punched).

Adhere Black Scallop above calendar strip.
Stamp & color image.
