Dear Ones~
Another week has come and gone. Hope it was a good one for you!!

This week at Just Us Girls we have a photo inspiration for you. Here is the photo:

Don't you just love those colors? And oh man, do those cookies look delicious? YUMMO!!!!

Here's the card I came up with:

I used the shaving cream technique to make those lovely swirls. Here's a close up of that:
Looks like frosting, doesn't it. Here's a link to a video that Gina from Gina K Designs did, showing this technique. It's really fun - and oh, so messy!!! And does the card ever smell good - ha ha!!!! Try it out!!!

  1. Love that background, it really does remind me of frosting! The enamel dots are the perfect accent on this. Great interpretation of the photo, you nailed it!

  2. Yes the cookies look good, but so does this amazing card. That shaving cream background is not as easy for me. Yours does look like frosting. Yummy. Very creative using the heart shape as the total card. You rocked this one.

  3. I really love the look of your background! I've never tried that technique before, maybe I'll have to now! What a gorgeous card!

  4. YUMMO is right, it does look like frosting! You always know how to utilize the very BEST techniques, always! This is just lovely! The heart shape just sets this card over the top--in a very good way! Totally reminds me of a beautiful (and yummy!) box of chocolates! Well done!

  5. Judy this is gorgeous! Love the shape and the swirly frosting. Such a fun technique! Also, love the added white dots. I just love the whole thing!

  6. AWESOME inspired, shaped card! You rocked this challenge~

  9. Oh Yeah, YUMMO!! This is beautiful Judy. I agree with Verna, I've never seen the shaving cream technique done so well.

  10. Beautiful job with the shaving cream technique Judy! It really does look like a frosted cake! Fabulous job my dear! Have a Blessed day!

  11. Oh Judy this is gorgeous. Funny I was playing with that technique yesterday and my craft room smells of shaving cream. Love the big heart and all the different elements you added. Fun having you as our Guest at JUGS.
