Coffee Cards Made with Shaving Cream Marbled Paper!

Hi friends! The other day I showed you how to marble paper with a kit from the Dollar Tree and water. Today I’ll show you how to marbleize paper with shaving cream!

The benefits to shaving cream marbling is you get a bold color that does not lighten when dry and it dries very quickly! Watch the video to see how!

The products I am using are by Stampin’ Up! If you don’t have a Stampin Up Demonstrator you can order from my friend Wendy Cranford. She also had lots of fun free tutorials on her blog and YouTube channel!  Use the host code to get extra goodies: YRN7G7UW *unless you are placing an order over $150, in that case you will do better ordering on your own as you will get hostess benefits:)

Supplies:

Shaving cream marbling directions: Apply a layer of shaving foam to a shallow tray or plate. Drop in reinker and swirl with a stick. Place cardstock on top and press down. Scrape off excess foam with an old gift card or scrap of cardboard. Let dry or heat set before using.

*Note, shaving foam leaves a waxy residue on the paper so use strong adhesive if gluing things on top of the marbled paper.

 

I think that this technique is best when you want a bold design and you want it now and that is why I personally prefer it to the water marble technique.  I will admit that the water marbelization can look more elegant though:) What do you like best? Will you, or have you tried this technique? Let me know in the comments and if you enjoyed this tutorial please consider sharing it with your friends in social media using one of the hand sharing buttons below! Have a great day and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I have always like the effect of the shaving cream marbling but I have found that the smell of the shaving cream never seems to go away.

  2. Hello from Australia Lindsay,

    I watched your old video on marbling with shaving cream on the other day. I was so excited that went to the supermarket straight away and bought a can of shaving cream for only $2.29 AUD, I pretty much had the rest at home. I got the best effects by using food colour, I now have a collection of background prints to make some awesome little gift cards.
