You are going to LOVE this – I hope! 😉
I learned about this awesome tool that is in most homes to make an AWESOME inking background technique…You should be AMAZED at what some SHAVING CREAM can do!!! 🙂 I was – but I’m not hard to impress! lol 🙂
I hope you enjoy this “Blessed” Cricut card that was made from:
- Stampin’ Up Card Stock
- K&Company Urban Paper Pack
- Shrinky Dink Paper “Frosted”
- Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks
- Stampin’ Solutions Cricut Cartridge
- Tim Holtz Distress Inks
- Black Hemp String
- Pop Dots
- ATG Gun
- Heat gun or hair dryer to set in the ink
- and don’t forget the Shaving Cream!
Can’t wait to hear what you think and if you think you’ll try it at home! 🙂
Oh and a side note for after you watch the video –
It works SO much better to have a thicker layer of Shaving Cream before you put your ink down – it swirls SO awesome and you can do a lot more with it – SO note from doing this a few times – THICKER LAYERS! 🙂
cool card! i saw this technique done with dye ink refill bottles and shaving cream, but i like the use of the alcohol inks better. thanks for sharing!!!
Very nice. I’ve never tried the shaving cream idea. I love the shrinky dink material. I color mine before shrinking.
Thanks so much for sharing the idea of using the paint brushes. My daughter and I are hooked on this technique. We ended up buying 50 brushes and marking them with all the different ink colors. I cannot wait to show her this technique. I think a trip to Fred Meyer for shaving cream in on our list today. That card turned out so sweet.
Great video! I have struggled with the shrink plastic in the oven, but your technique has inspired me to not give up. Thanks so much for sharing!
Shrinky dink?! I haven’t seen shrinky dink in years. The hunt is on.
i like this video, i will need to get shrinkey dinkys and give this a try. Thanks for all your hard work and these viedos. i RELLY like your sight. It’s easy to use. thank you
Wow this is really cool. I will have to try this myself. You are so awesome and fun to watch. Thank you for sharing everything that you do.God bless you
cool card I have used a lot of shrinky dinks over the last year. They have a clear on that looks great with the alcohol dyes
This is a great idea!! Where do you get the Shrinky dink material??
Love your card….haven’t seen the Shrinky Dink before…will need to go back thru your videos to see if can find.
You can also do this technique using soap bubbles; blown bubbly with a straw, instead of the shaving cream.
Cool card, wanting to try the shrinky Dinks, Thanks Meagan another thing to buy, are they very expensive?
Love the card & the technique. Did you just regular white carsdstock or was it glossy cardstock?
thanks for the demo, i will try this at home
So many cool techniques!! I’m blown away! The divine swirls embossing gives “blessed” a marblized effect. Thanks for sharing and you have a blessed day, too.
Oh my goodness! You keep showing me new stuff and I haven’t even got the other items ordered yet! Fun Fun Fun……….
I’ve done with with acrylic paint but never tried alcohol inks. I love to use them. Will try with shrinky dinks. What fun things you find to do.
Oh WOW!! Cool idea, I love messy projects. LOL
Shrinky Dinks were bought at Michaels’ a pack of 10 sheets was $4.99 and you can use a coupon to get them cheaper! 🙂
I just used white cardstock it was not glossy.
Have a great day!
Wow. I’ve seen that technique before, but it looked to complicated. I will try it and let you know. Thanks for the technique on the Cricut cutout Blessed. I never thought to do that. Keep em’ coming. Thanks a bunch.
What are your settings when cutting the Shrnky-Dink? I’m impressed. 😉
It’s in the cutting guide – but I use the hightest depth and pressure multi cut and speed usually on like 3 or 4. 🙂
well, you learn something new every day!
Think my kids will love shrinky dinks and the shave foam technique too,TFS

I just can’t keep up with the products out there and you keep them coming! I am so addicted! Love your videos and this one was another winner!
Massy is good! I just would like to sugest, if you could finish your videos with a picture of the project, or something like that, so we can see the details of it, in a close.
Hugs from Brazil, dear.
The shaving cream technique really works well with glossy type paper. Give it a try.
Another cute card. I haven’t done anything like this for a long while. Thanks for reminding us.
Great card and technique. Can’t wait to give it a try.
My sister has been on me for some time to get involved in scrap booking, and I just couldn’t get excited about it until your videos where introduced to me. Now I’m waiting for my Cricut Expression in the mail and can’t wait to get started.
Thank you, Megan for your infectious enthusiasm
Would you believe I have shrink art material I bought, gosh, over 16 years ago? I found it recently when I was going through some of my old craft supplies, and have been wanting to use it. Your video has inspired me to go ahead and just do something with it. As always, thank you so much. I love your videos. Oh yes! Can’t wait to get my copy of the DVD, ordered it a couple of weeks ago.
