Morning Sue. Pixie's + foam = elegance, beauty and another gorgeous Sue Wilson work of art. Pixie's + foam = a sheer disaster for this Muppet lol. I can't even get a good outcome with water Sue let alone the foam that I bought about 4 years ago to try the 'original' foam technique and never have !! So I shall be heading straight to the how to video as soon as my keeper and his four legged friend has left for the country park, this I have to see, and I can't wait ☺
Many congratulations to Freedom, you have an exquisite card to look forward to coming through your post box - enjoy x
Sending hugs your way for a lovely day xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wow this is a lovely card, using the pixie powders, I will check out the video later when I have my breakfast.

Congratulations to Freedom99, enjoy your prize.

Elaine, Andrew has the right idea, keep mind and body busy and active, he is responding well xx My heart goes out to Helen and her family, I know she feels awful that she cannot be with her Mum at this time but like all Mum's she knows that Helen cares and is still holding her hand albeit from far away, distance knows no bounds where love is concerned. xx

Pam wishing you a very, very happy birthday today, enjoy yourself, we miss you terribly on the top spot. big hugs my friend. xx

To everyone who is suffering or troubled, I wish you peace and comfort, to all those lucky bloggers who are going travelling, have a safe journey and a wonderful time. remember we have Sue's new release to look forward too.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

What a lovely card. Pixie powder. + shaving foam certainly gives a great background. I haven't used shaving foam since I did a workshop with you years ago at CE Tiwers.

Interesting card Sue, great background.

Jennie - The Crafty Wife said...

I have to give this pixie powders method a try as my usual exploits with shaving foam come out quite pale. A lovely card in pink today.

Dawn Searle said...

Morning Sue, another pretty card today. I have lots of Pixie powders, but I haven't used shaving foam as yet. The first time I used pixie powders, it looked like a mud bath, think I mixed the wrong colours. Since then I have managed to get some stunning results, all trial and error, so I will definitely try shaving foam.
Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs xx

Hi Sue,

My goodness me, Oooh flash bang! what a picture to greet my tired eyes this morning.
A vision of perfection.
The shaving foam technique is still not one I have mastered yet, must try harder.

The sun has just broken out of the clouds and is bathing the houses and gardens with a golden glow. Seems like a nice day is beginning.

Healing prayers and gentle hugs for all.

Love 7 hugs

Anonymous said...

Never got the hang of shaving foam, Sue, perhaps not having the right inks even though I tried so hard - and it's messy, so thank heavens have no pixies so won't be tempted again! Borrowed Mr P's foam, promising the holy grail, he did laugh at the reveal! However, you have a lovely effect here and it makes a great background to a pretty card. Thanks as ever for the video, you make it all look so easy.
Pleased to see you yesterday, Pam, have a lovely day. Missed you 'up top'.
PP - hope the holiday gives you some great r-e-l-a-x time.
Carmen - facial?? Need a major face lift (+ other bits) since everything headed south long ago!!
Laine - guess your ginger boy has many friends? Hope so.
Well done to Freedom99 on the card win.
Sending hugs, especially for Elaine's Helen, and Lorraine too.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Haven't tried the Pixie powders with shaving foam yet...I can imagine the mica would really shine in real life...sadly the lighting in the pic doesn't do it justice and even makes the treat cup look like it's slipped off although the close-ups show that it's just the to watch the video now to see how you did it...

Congratulations to Freedom99!


lydia jordan said...

anything for me. Perhaps the Pixie powders are too

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. I have never had the courage to use the foam techniques. Please can you tell me is it just ordinary shaving foam that my husband would use in the bathroom or something just for craft use. Also not used pixie powders before but need to have a try. Love the card Sue. Regards Ann.

Pam said...

Stunning card Sue, reminded me of Rasberry Ripple ice cream, yummy.
Congratulations to Freedom, lucky lucky winner.
Thank you June and everyone,Patricia, I'm sure I could hear you singing Hapoy Birthday.
Pp, hope the boys got everything packed and you have a great time, the IoW is so lovely.
Just had a lovely breakfast, I always indulge on holiday, then out for day, but I must admit I'm missing my daughters and grandchildren today
Elaine, my thoughts and hugs for you and your family, you are going through so much just now.

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
Loving the Petticoat tails idea Sue , but sorry the background is a little too heavy for me , just my opinion though , it would not do for us all to like the same.

Well done to Freedome 99 enjoy your lovely card

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAM!! have a really good day.

June thank you for your post, Helen will take comfort from your words .

PP i hope you got a restful nigh and are full of the joys this morning to start your holiday , have a wonderful time.

Hi Sue, I am going to have to think about this card for a while as it doesn't grab me straight away. Maybe when I watch the video I will feel differently. I do enjoy the shaving foam technique but as yet have no pixies.

Pam - HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I hope you enjoy your days away.
Freedom99 - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy your gorgeous gift.

Very pretty card even if I am not much of one for hearts, I do like the pixie powder/shaving foam technique. I managed to master the use of foam and inks but must certainly try this method. Just need to go buy some more cheap foam!

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I've just watched the video which as ever is brilliant! I may be wrong here but the Pixie Powders look more controllable with the shaving foam technique than the inks! I'm definitely going to give it a try. I have used the inks but I think I may prefer this way.
Today's card is beautiful and I love how you have kept everything else white. Your flower is gorgeous too. I had a lesson from Patricia on how to make those too. Don't tell her but she is very good at making flowers! Thank you once again for the inspiration!
Deputy June - thank you for helping us today . It's much appreciated - another kind , caring lady!
Happy Birthday Pam!!! Hope iyou have a lovely day even if you are missing your family a little.
Thinking of Elaine, Andrew , Helen and praying for peace of mind for Helen and her Mum.
PP - enjoy your holiday - have a good rest ! We won't talk about you while you are away!
Maria - how are you feeling now! ?
Frances - check the bottom of the garden for pixies! You never know!
Love to all . Just remembered haven't checked Carmen's post from yesterday! How remiss of me.
Love Myra xx

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
I love this card, especially your gorgeous flowers, and I was engrossed watching the video. I loved the effect you got from the shaving foam and pixie powder background. So much so I went and looked for a can of shaving foam I had squirrelled away in the bathroom cabinet. However having found it I ended up using it for its original purpose - not on my face I hasten to add! That prompted me to jump in the shower, which led to my washing my hair, then a toe nail manicure. Dried off and decided to go the whole hog and use my expensive body lotion. My toes looking nice by this time I ended up painting my nails. So thank you Sue for the inspiration!!! It's amazing where this blog leads to.

Pam Happy Birthday, hope you had a wonderful day, missed seeing you at your number one spot.
June thank you for helping out in Palms abscence, you are officially her deputy now!
Patricia, im echoing Myra and Littlelamb, along with Sue you also make amazing flowers.
Maria glad you are feeling a bit better, sorry the scans were painful though.
Sam hope you get your laptop sorted soon ,
Elaine you and your family are in my thoughts in prayers.
Congratulations Freedom, enjoy your prize.
Lots of excitement now it's April, not long to your launch Sue and not long to our gang of nine meet up either!
Love and hugs for all

Beautiful card. Lovely colors. I never tried pixie powders and not willing to try soon, but you won me over with this technique. Pixie powders are on the list now. Thank you for another great video tutorial.

Sandy H said...

Super card and a brilliant video. Creating backgrounds from shaving foam is such fun so this may actually get me opening those pixie powders. My granddaughters loved using shaving foam with inks to make backgrounds and it worked just as well using the supermarket's own cheapest foam as my first attempt when I used by husband's pricier brand.

Congratulations Freedom99 on your card win.

My comment game prize arrived today so I'm a happy bunny.

Pam, hope you had a lovely birthday.

Take care everyone.
