Love You


 Good morning crafty friends!  If you were able to tune in early Monday morning, you saw the demo on this card (after we got past the video they had to use because of the IT issue!)  I really wanted to spend a bit more time on the demo and talk about some of the different ways to achieve the same effect, but it was a bit of a rush to get it all finished with the delayed start to the show.  On air, I used the Cosmic Shimmer Lava Red mister with my shaving foam, but you can use a variety of other types of ink products with this technique.  Dye based re-inkers work a treat, as well as any mister, but avoid alcohol inks.  I won't go into a detailed explanation here but there is a step by step tutorial showing how to do the shaving foam technique at the top of my blog.  Just click on the link.  Once you have finished that portion, then make sure your piece has been wiped clean of any residue of the shaving foam (if it feels damp, you a heat tool on it briefly), then cover your piece with a sticky adhesive sheet.  Press any air bubbles out that may be there, then peel off the backing paper and cover with clear micro beads for a completely different look to your piece.  I matted it with red card to give it some definition from my white background.  I cut a larger white mat and stamped the heart stamp all around the edge using a clear perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed the edge with white powder for a tone on tone look.  I stamped my sentiment from Justrite stamps and cut it out with the heart from the Timeless amour set.  I edged the heart with fired Brick distress ink and mounted it up with some foam pieces.  I glued the decorative edge from the heart flat to the micro beaded background.  I pierced around the edges with my piercing ruler to complete my card.   I think this would look lovely done with a silver or a pearl mister to make a wedding card, don't you think?!  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Loved it on the show the other day, and still love it. Have shaving foam on my shopping list for this week!

Saw this on Monday, Sue, new to me and what a result! FAB-U-LOUS card.
Thank you for all the fantastic samples, with many old friends shown, must have taken you days to make - and as Nigel said from the "team of one" (imagining you sitting all on your lonesome for hours on end!)
Particularly liked the pink-and-kraft 'grunge' card and hope this may appear on your blog soon.

Fab card, and such a wonderful technique. I must have a go at that. Linda xxx

Lynne M said...

Hi Sue, LOVE LOVE LOVE this card , just brilliant. Sat and watched all your shows yesterday , hubby watched the 7pm show too and when you mentioned that a lady had told you she had 1013 dies my hubby looked at me and said do you have that amount too!!!!!! Of course not I said that is a huge amount of dies I wouldn't have enough space in my craft room for all of those dies. Well confession is good for the soul so fellow "Wilsonettes" I don't have as much as that lady but I do have 965 dies. I feel so much better now and I know you all will forgive me for my spellbinder obsession . Lol Lynne M x x x

Lynne M said...

Hi Sue, forgot to say that I've got in a good supply of shaving foam and hidden it so hubby doesn't pinch it!!!!!! . x x x x

Desiree said...

Hi Sue,
A gorgeous card. Having a really busy week with work so am having to store recordings of your shows till the weekend. :(
Had to have a quick peek though and your creativity is amazing, as always! Can't wait to have a better look.x

Patricia said...

Good morning Sue,
Great card,I love the effect this technique gives. Must give that a go once I get some Shaving Foam.

Great shows "Thank You" for the mention.
Hugs

Patricia xx

tracy w said...

Hi Sue what a beautiful card love the colours going to give it a go and yes I watch you at 1pm you were brilliant with all your demo so much to do thank you for the ideas Tracy w x

Rose in Chester said...

Well Sue, you stunned me with that technique when I saw it on your show and shaving foam is now on my shopping list. The card is absolutely gorgeous and would make a lovely wedding card in white/silver or ivory/gold.
And I feel very good now, having only paltry 437 dies. Such a long way to go before I have to feel bad!!!!

Gail said...

Morning Sue
Saw you demo this on Monday, love it! Went out and bought some shaving foam yesterday, going to have a play tomorrow with my crafting buddies .
Thanks for the help yesterday.

Erica said...

Morning Sue,
This card is just gorgeous. The design and colours all in harmony.
I've watched all your shows so far on C n C and have so many ideas buzzing around my head. Thank you for sharing them and inspiring me to stretch my creativity.
I especially liked the shaving foam demos, quite amazing and such fun too. Must have a go at this bit, since my husband uses an electric razor I guess I'll have to supply my own shaving foam?!
Will be watching again today.
Erica x

Wilma Brown said...

Hi Sue, who would have believed that shaving foam could give such a beautiful effect, love it, will have to give it a go. Loved to hear you mention Hazel anf Patricia and their pendant, and charity work. They are both lovely ladies. Thank you for giving us so much inspiration and wish you had your own shows on C&C like Barbara Grey. That would be wonderful.

Wilma x x x

Anonymous said...

,morning Sue, This card is D-E-LI-CI-OUS!! The shows have a "Feel Good" factor just like a Sunny Day. Thanks Sue and if the "powers that be" saw your shows they'd be signing long contracts with you so we could see more regularly. You could save them money too.....you don't need a presenter...lol Mabex

Celina Dee said...

Stunning. I love the way the background is so marbled looking.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. This is my favourite card, it is simply perfect. Your blending of foam and colour is perfect. You know just when to stop. I have done the shaving foam trick using poster paints many times when I worked at a Pre school (the children loved seeing the magic paper appear)and I had forgotten all about it, thank you for reminding me. Loving the shows. Take care.

BridgetCG said...

Hi Sue, this card is fabulous, and the technique is amazing, just need to get out to buy the shaving foam. Loving the shows. Bx

Debby Berry said...

Good morning crafty Sue,
I am so happy to watch you on the TV, I always ponder the same question... How do you create such unique cars? I think bringing back some of the previous dies with the new ones is fantastic to remind us to use the old ones. You should bring back YOUR dies next.

Anne Crawford said...

Fantastic card, what an imagination you have,so glad you share it with us! I agree with Wilma you should have your OWN SHOWS!
Maybe we should start a petition ?

Cee Bee said...

Hi SUe

Love, love, love this card. It has imspired me for my Uncle and Aunts Silver Wedding coming up. Can't wait to have a go with the shaving foam. Have taped all the shows so far as I am at weork so it was wall to wall Sue Wilson last night.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
You are so right - in pearl or silver this would be a beautiful wedding card, but could be used for so many others too. This would make a lovely ruby wedding one. I loved this when I saw it on the tv on Monday and every time I've seen it again it grows on me even more! I was really chuffed when they showed my card on tv yesterday & it was so bizarre that at the same time you were demonstrating the Bella rosa card as well - must be psychic!!!!

CraftyAnn said...

This card is stunning. I had forgotten about the shaving foam technique, thanks for jogging my memory, I will be using this in future ie. today providing all your other followers have not bought all the stock!
Take care.

foxyg said...

Stunning card Sue. Watched the technique on TV. Amazing.

Lara B said...

Good morning Sue
What a beautiful card, saw your demo on Monday...I'm delighted to see you on the telly (off sick at the moment, so plenty of opportunities to watch)
I'm glad you mentioned 'no alcohol ink'...I went to my local craft shop yesterday to buy some...luckily she had none in stock. Lol!

Looking forward to your shows today, thanks for all the great tips and inspiration!

Have a great day!

Now back to card it is simply stunning i lovr this die and stamp set cant wait for mine to arrive. The background just makes this card. Just wish i could come up with half of the ideas you come up with. Take care Sue xx

Sonja_W said...

Loved this cars from the minute I saw the demo on Monday. Such a stunning background. I have the day off today and hopefully will manage to catch a show or two and maybe even place an order - that is if there still things left as seems to be one sell out after another :)

Rosie said...

Loved this and even tried the marbling effect for myself - so easy when explained so clearly. Have really enjoyed all the demos I was able to watch and have ordered the Vintage Floret die and stamp set. Thank you, Sue.

Donna Jones said...

Hi Sue,

Stunning card. Had a play last night and made 12 papers, I had fun mixing up the colours and got some lovely results, don't think I will micro bead mine as it would hide the mica shimmer. I too wish C&C would let you demo more.

jacqui said...

Love the card sue,you did well to finish in time on the show.

happy2craft said...

Good Morning Sue,
This is a beautiful card, loved the demo, like many others, shaving foam is on my shopping list.
It was really lovely when you mentioned Patricia and Hazel, I had spotted the pendant, they are beautiful, these two ladies have kept in touch with me throughout my Mum's illness, they are really special sisters, so kind.
Have a great day today.

Morning Sue

I'm a bit late this morning had a wee lie in! :)

I love today's card! Your day was a bit frantic wasn't it? Hopefully it will be calmer today for you and you will have time to do what you do best that's demonstrating (and I mean that in the nicest way :) )

I am off tomorrow so will be able to catch up on all your shows and catch some live!!

My granddaughter who is nearly 5 watched you yesterday on my laptop and is hooked by you and on the shaving foam technique and has requested we try it on her next sleepover!!

Take care have a really Grrrreat Day!

Morning Sue, I was in love with this technique when I saw you demo on Monday, especially being red with white, it is beautiful, I will be giving this one a go.
I noticed you did an extra show yesterday, boohoo, I had to go out at 12pm and wasn't back until 3pm so I didn't know, I had programmed all your other shows.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Jackie D said...

Hi Sue,
I was as amazed as everyone when you showed this technique live and then yesterday with the silver distress stain, something to have a go at sometime. This made a really nice background to your card. My friends queried last night how many dies I have but I don't think I dare count and why waste crafting time counting!!
love from Jackie D

Hi Sue

Gorgeous gorgeous card I love it.The background is fabulous what a wonderful demo you gave on Monday you are a star. I got up early got breakie all sorted and comfy on the sofa switched on and hey ho Julia was on I thought oh I must have got the time confused doesn't take much these days to confuse me he he...:-) Anyways I had got Hubbie to record the show so I was just gonna leave it then Dean appeared oh how proffesional you both were. So proud to know you the samples are just fabulous you must have spent hours and hours making them all.
I was supposed to be sitting on my hand as I had bought a lot of new dies but my Dear Daughter has got me the stamps for labels 20 for Mother's day and I got the pretty background on you did on the blue card so cannot wait for them to arrive they look really detailed stamps so will make great cards.
Thankyou for all your inspiration hope things have calmed down a little at C&C Towers take good care.

Hugs Annx without an "e"

sarah hyett said...

Wow what amazing background will have to give this technique ago. Love the rest of the card too. X

Jan Caven said...

Hi Sue
I love this card simply stunning. Really enjoying the shows but I too wish they would give you more time for demos, Dean said it should be two hours and he is right, but then I am greedy as I love watching such a lovely lady.
Love Jan x x

Anyway the cards are beautiful Sue!

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a beautiful card - though I am not sure about the background effect (I bet I'm the only one who hasn't loved it).The format is lovely and yes it would make a wonderful wedding/anniversary card in a different colour background - perhaps that would make my decision for me. I managed to catch the 19.00hr show and loved it.

auscrafts said...

love this technique with shaving foam , but never done it for many years.I think I'll still have a few cans hidden away at the back of the cupboard .I like the idea of using the micro beads over the card

Hi Sue i agree with what every one has said ,the shaving foam idea is great and i also agree about the amount of time they take showing all the goods .also i think it would be great for you to have a show like Barbara Gray.

Love this card Sue. I spent all last night playing with shaving foam, washing up bowl and ink sprays. Great fun and I have some gorgeous backgrounds. Thank you for sharing!! Left a bowl full of foam in the sink and I'm hoping it's liquid this morning and easier to clean up lol! Looking forward to your shows today. Good luck. Maddy x

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
Yes done this technique and always a joy to see how it turns out. No two are the same. Love this red card. Ordered the gold and silver stain of tim holts to do backgrounds for wedding cards.
Wonder if i could ask you to put the plaited wreath you did from ribbon on your blog. Love to do that.
Wonderful card and been blown away by some of your demos

I was just thinking that up and down the land the supermarket bosses will be scratching their heads and wondering why they've all sold out of cheap shaving foam this week :-)

Sue Dunn said...

Sue loved this one so much when you did it on air I had a go. Mine didn't come out as well as yours though. But I've just read that you say not to use alcohol inks? I did! Is it because they colour the foam too quickly. Mine went a horrible pink. Out if three pieces of card I got one that was good. The other two were a bit pink and wishi washy. Will keep my ars open for an answer hopefully. Xx

Sandybee said...

Such a clever background technique and a beautiful card

Hello Sue,
Yay...the famous 'shaving cream' card!!! I love how you did it on the telly, I'm so glad that I've seen it live and the reveal...even Dean was stunned! I haven't got any shaving cream yet but will definitely get one and make lots and lots of DIY background. Your cards are such an inspiration, and of course our guru, you make it all happen! Thank you for all your hardwork and your time to share your ideas and technique...you're one generous lady! I love this card Sue, it is one of your best creations no one will forget...this card will be known globally as the 'shaving cream card'!!! Take care and hope you're in good health
Lots of live, Aggie xxxx

Hello Sue, Loved this on Monday and love it still, a truly beautiful card, the background is stunning. Will be buying some shaving foam at the weekend, if the crafters have left any, and giving this a try, it looks sooo much fun and the results are amazing. Loving the shows, the samples are gorgeous and glad to see some past favourites in there. Congratulations on yesterday's milestone, you soooo deserve it, your inspiration captivates us all.
Have a great day everyone.

Lesley sinclair said...

Hi sue I love this card and the shaving foam technique is great, I have a tin in my kitchen that I bought when you showed it the first time on c&c which is at least 2 years but might even be 3 years ago!!! Never got around to trying it then but will definitely be giving it a go today as I have more shimmer sprays now.i have to say I laughed out loud at Lynne m comment as I am the same and hide how much stash I have!!! I must count how many dies I have,it's nowhere near that amount though!! Love Lesley x

I saw you demoing this card on Monday, I couldn't believe my eyes when you scraped the shaving foam off the card, it's absolutely stunning xx

Katie-Louise Sweetlove said...

Hi Sue
Thanks for putting this card on your blog I only just caught the end of the demo but have read through the tutorial on your blog. It's a stunning card and I definitely think that it would be great in silver for wedding cards and stationary, the distress stain in silver you used yesterday was beautiful.

I look forward to the rest of your demos today and tomorrow and thankfully the ipad app seems to be working again so I can see your shows again ��.

Best wishes from Katie-Louise Sweetlove

Fantastic card Sue, I watched you on create and craft ..... needless to say I have now got some shaving foam and cant wait to have a go at this technique. The card is absolutely stunning. I love it. Janice xx

Morning Sue,

Thanx for the instructions, just have to do this !!! off to the supermarket to buy the foam, that will give the checkout girl a shock!!
Can the foam be reused, maybe by adding another colour???

Barbara xx

Love the show again this morning looking forward to the pm ones

Hi Sue, this is an absolutely stunning card, which I can personally vouch for as I am sitting holding and admiring the original card!! Yes ladies I was the lucky girl who won Sue's gorgeous creation on Monday morning's C&C show and I couldn't be happier.

Sue this is truely a work or art and as such I am going to get it framed to put on my craftroom desk so that I can admire it everyday. I even sat hubby down to watch the show where you did the technique again and he ran into the bathroom to hide his shaving foam, lol. He was amazed at how you achieved this. When the card arrived (about 20 mins ago) we both sat admiring it and now hubby is off to buy me shaving foam!!

I am really enjoying your shows Sue and can't wait to see you at 2pm. I love the Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour Die with 3Stamp Sets although it is hard to have a favourite.

Hugs, Michelle E xx

Lindsay Martin said...

lovely techinque Sue, not one I have tried, but will be off to buy some shaving foam soon.. great to have an extra bit of "Sue" yesterday, and although I missed the later show I was able to see it at 9 last night when it was repeated, so a good result for me!!! So annoying when work gets in the way, you are not on our screens enough without having to miss you to work, though I suppose if I don't work I can not buy the fantastic dies etc... ho hum what a connundrum!!!!!

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Sorry missed the show but wow, what a fab background to a gorgeous card

Already purchased my shaving foam. I have brought a non-perfumed version as the smell seems to linger;-) With love & light Theresa. H

Julie Bee said...

Hi Sue

Another cracker, such a clever idea with the shaving foam, just another inspiration, where do they all come from.

Going to email the shows today, i still dont know if im doing it right, i email studio@createandcraft.tv.

I havent bought any of the dies yet i am going to wait for Ali-Pali, where i hope to get the white plate from creative expressions for my embossing folders.

Keep them coming(the cards).

Best Wishes

Julie Bee

Tres said...

Hi Sue. I saw you make this card on Monday morning. It is just fantastic !! I will definitely give this one a go !! I have been watching all your shows and they are so wonderful. Like some other bloggers I really think you should have your own show like Barbara Grey. I love all the deals on your shows but I must not buy any more craft stuff. It is so hard not to !! Happy crafting love Tres x x x

Zoe said...

An amazing card Sue as usual, I've been wanting to do the shaving foam technique for a long time but had forgotten how to! Thank you so much for showing it on C&C, I have now had a go and I'm very pleased with how they turned out, keep up the good work xx

Hugs, Belinda X

Hazel said...


Sue, Thank you so much for mentioning the pendent that Patricia sent you and how I came to make the tear drops instead of crying them when I was told I had womb cancer. The fact that we can give back something to the chemotherapy unit is great.

Thank you once again. Hazel

Vie Carter said...

MRS DUCK said...

One of my favourite cards. Have driven hubby nuts with watching all the shows but even he was impressed with the shaving foam,which then turned to concern as to whethe he would get a shave this morning!
Was lucky enough to be pulled out the Potty yesterday so look forward to my Sue Wilson original. Thanks for sorting out my following query. I think Im now officially a follower.X

Each & every one are gorgeous. Love the shaving foam technique, will have to get some! The heart die & stamps are absolutely stunning, (as are all of them!). It's great to see the card that you use is now on C&C. Have ordered the dazzlers/pearl embellishments & can't wait for them to come!

Lori said...

I am so in Love with this card Sue (Pun intended?). I do have a question for you though. I noticed that all of your cards are larger than the norm paper sizes. How do you do this? For and 8 x 8 card, you would need at least 8 x 16 inch card stock. Correct? If so I would love to know where you buy it so large. Hugs Lori
