Flower Soft

Good Morning,

Today was my "at home" play day. I've been reading about Flower Soft and yesterday Karen of Paradise Scrapbook Boutique lent me a video that showed many uses for Flower Soft. I must say...I was hooked. Karen will have Flower Soft products available SOON.....Karen was kind enough to let me play with two sample colors - Pale Green and Spring, and the Flower Soft Adhesive. The video stresses using a thick glue that dries clear.

I know that Flower Soft has many quality graphics available...but for play day I used a PSX rubber stamp (K413). The sentiment is a Stampin-Up stamp. To stamp the images, I used Versafine - Onyx. I always double stamp. To do this, you need a stamp positioner. The one I use, I've had for years. It is a "Stamp-ograph", by Mostly Animals. Of any I've tried....I like this one best. The Tombow markers I used are: N81, 158, 228, 177, 245, 743, 725, 905, 873, 985, 055. I used a Gelly Roll - Silver Glitter pen around the top of the wreathe. It's really shiny, though it didn't show up nearly well enough in the photo. (click on the image to see a larger photo.) Did I tell you I like shiny? To blend my markers, I used my Stampin-Up blender pen. The dimensional daisies were cut using the BossKut - Blossoms die. I cut them using my Sizzix Big Shot. I've yet to find a die it won't cut. I love that machine! The card stock and the ribbon on the inside of the card, are from my stash. On the inside I also used a Fiskars border punch....

I'm heading back to my craft room.....I'd like to play a little longer. See you next time.
