Faux Shaving Cream
The shaving cream technique is lots of fun, but can be pretty messy. If you like the appearance of marbled backgrounds but not the fuss, try using your solid stamps and a wheel to create a similar look.

Q: Nancy asked: "Can you stamp on wood and if so, what would be the steps to do so? Thank you!"
A: "There are several ways to stamp on wood. You can stamp directly on smooth wood with permanent inks like StazOn™ or Palette™. You can stamp with pigment ink as well. Let it dry and seal carefully. You can also paint your wood first with acrylic ink and then stamp on it. Check out forum threads here and here for more information and tips on stamping on wood.

Feedback From Past Tutorials
Karen said "Hi, I made embossing buddies for all my friends. I used muslin fabric and baby powder. I cut one rectangle of fabric, about 2" by 4", folded it over, ran a seam on my sewing machine up one side, filled with baby powder, ran a seam to close the pouch of powder. It works great!"
