CAS MixUp - January 2017

A couple cards to join in the fun over at CAS MixUp card challenge.  I made two so wanted to post them together.  I tried a "new to me" technique called Shaving Cream technique.  While it was quite messy, I did have the optional bonus of having my craft room smell like a freshly shaved face for about 3 days - LOL!  It was fun and I made quite a few panels in different colors; however both these cards are with the same colored panels.

The first card up:
   Shave Cream technique (liquid ink refills)
   Die cutting and Inlaid dies
   Stamping, Embossing with powder

Second card:
   Shave Cream technique (liquid ink refills)
   Die cutting
   Dry embossing  (LF Stitched Borders "NBUS")
   Stamping  (PTI Stylish Sentiments:  Birthday)

These cards will both go to:

Edited to Add:  I guess I've learned another valuable lesson!  Today I learned that you must use different blog posts to link up additional cards to the same challenge!  I guess it doesn't really surprise me, but I posted my cards in one post, thinking I was saving myself some time.  So, now the first was linked and the second is strictly for viewing   :o)
I've also just noticed that my card is distinctly similar to Loll's!  Yikes! She's the Master!  I will say there was no intention of this, in fact I usually do not look at the "examples" until after so as not to be swayed!  I would say "great minds think alike" but clearly a Master is the best!
Wow, Thanks to Cat Craig, I've learned something else!  She helped me link both cards...

Hope you enjoyed your visit, and please come back again soon!  Your visits and comments mean the world to me!



  1. Such a pretty card TK. Love the techniques you used, very eye catching.

  2. Your shave cream background is so delicate and soft and I like how you used the inlaid die cut.

  3. What beautiful soft marbeling, perfect for that inlaid branch on the blue panel! Love the CAS design :D
    Thanks for sharing on CAS Mix Up!

  4. Both of these are wonderful, TK! I love your marbled pieces and I know they smell good too! Love the inlaid die on the first card and the awesome embossing on the second! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! And you'll have to share how to link both cards from the same blog.

  5. what a wonderful set of cards, tk!!

  6. Great job with your marbling TK. The panels are really beautiful, love the mix of colours. This is a really messy technique. I always do it at the kitchen sink so I can easily wash away the leftover shaving cream. It really is a fun technique and the smell is wonderful. :) I am loving inlaid die-cutting and your leaf sprig looks awesome! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  7. Your cards are beautiful!! I've tried, and had fun with this technique, but didn't get the pretty results that you did!

  8. What fabulous panels from your shaving cream technique, TK ... they're so soft and delicate ... great with the bold colours on both cards! Hugs, Anita :)

  9. I loved doing the shaving cream marbling but I don't have reinkers so I used food coloring. They worked fine. Yours are subtle and lovely with the colors of cs you put them with, TK.


Thanks for coming by, your comments are appreciated -- they make my heart happy!
