Stampin’ Up! A Nice Cuppa for the Totally Techniques Blog Hop

Website Banner resized

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Nice Cuppa stamp set to create my card for the monthly Totally Techniques blog hop.  This month we’re focusing on the shaving cream technique and I created a quick photo tutorial to show you how this technique is done.  You can see my tutorial here.

Here is my card:

A Nice Cuppa - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Can You Case It #104.

And the theme for my card was inspired by Stamp Ink Paper #32.  I went down the right side with heart, pink and bling.

I started by creating Pool Party and Melon Mambo marbled panels using the Shaving Cream Technique.  I let them dry completely, then adhered the Pool Party panel to a panel of Basic Gray card stock with SNAIL and to a Bermuda Bay card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Nice Cuppa 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I cut a circle from Basic Gray card stock and from the Have a Cuppa DSP Stack with Circles Collection Framelits Dies, adhered them together, trimmed the edge off, then adhered them to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the teacup image from the A Nice Cuppa photopolymer stamp set in Pool Party ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the matching Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies.

A Nice Cuppa 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I added a strand from the Pearl Basic Jewels to the teacup, then stamped the tag image from the A Nice Cuppa stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on the Melon Mambo marbled panel.  I cut the tag and a heart from the panel with the Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies.  I adhered the tag to a strand of Whisper White Baker’s Twine and then to the teacup with Glue Dots, then taped the strand to the back of the teacup.  I adhered the teacup to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the heart with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A Nice Cuppa 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the A Nice Cuppa stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a panel of White Vellum, punched the end with the Hexagon Punch and adhered it to the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment over the Stampin’ Dimensonal on the sentiment banner, then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the heart to finish it.

A Nice Cuppa 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I inked the cup and heart images from the A Nice Cuppa stamp set in Pool Party and Melon Mambo inks, stamped them on scrap paper, then stamped them on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. I love the marble-y way your cardstock came out, your very own DSP 🙂 This is one technique I’d love to try! Every time I get a can of shaving cream in my stash, my husband needs mine 😉 Doesn’t tell me he is out, so once again there goes my stash….*sigh

    • Ha! I went and bought a really cheap can of shaving cream at the dollar store for my stash…my husband doesn’t want anything to do with that, so it’s staying in my stamp room. 🙂 It is a really cool technique!

  2. Cute card and very good tutorial on the shaving cream technique. I love the look of the marbled paper you got. TFS

  3. Such an awesome card Amy! I am always enthralled by your creativity and I was not disappointed on this occasion! Love the subtle colour combination and attention to detail. Very inspiring post and creation. Cheers Shanni

  4. Very pretty card, I love the background and the colors you used together. Thanks for playing along with our sketch challenge this week at CYCI!

  5. Wow, wow, wow!!! What an awesome card and brilliant technique Amy. I’ve seen the shaving foam done lots of times but yours is outstanding. I really thought it was DSP. Brilliant and and it pairs perfectly with the tea cup stamps. Thanks for joining us at CYCI? – Chlo x

  6. Amy, your cards are always so pretty and this is no exception! I LOVE it! The DSP in your background almost looks steamy with that cup of hot tea! 🙂 Thanks so much for joining us at Stamp, Ink, Paper for our Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!
