Shabby Chic

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is Shabby Chic.

I kind of struggled with this one...but this is the card I made.
The base of my card is CTMH Champagne cardstock, which I embossed with one of the new CTMH Embossing Folders called Damask.   I added CTMH Hollyhock Zipper Lace to the one side.  I then used Hollyhock cardstock to make my square piece, which I distressed all the edges of.   I stamped on the heart which is from the CTMH Sweet & Lovely stamp set, which is one of the stamp sets that come with the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Bundle.  I first stamped it with Chocolate Ink...and then stamped it again using White Ink.   The "Many Thanks" is from the Chantilly Paper Pack...one of the borders on one of the designer papers.    I then added three different colored flowers to it (which are not CTMH.)

Shaving Cream Technique Hearts

Made this "Just Because" card using the shaving cream technique (the Just Because is a 3D stick on.)   I used a yellow cardstock for the base of my card...and after doing the shaving cream technique I cut one big heart and five small hearts out of my sheet.

The challenge this month at UnstampaBelles is called "Dare To Get Dirty" - and to take pictures a long the way.    So I did.....

This first picture shows the products I used:
I ended up just using the colors Crimson and Green.
Next - put the shaving cream into the plate:
Note: I did not have much shaving cream left in the can, so it came out a little more runny and had bubbles...but it still worked good.
Swirl it around:
Lay your cardstock on it and press it down:
Then take it off and wipe it down:
It's pretty messy:
This is what I ended up with:
I cut my hearts out of this.
