Flower Soft in Glass Vase

Time for another bouquet of Flower Soft! What a great way to add dimension and texture to a design!


I began with some Pink Passion cardstock from Stampin' Up, creating the base and panel. I then used a Scor-bug Embosser and Scor-Pal to create a diagonal dotted grid on the main panel, as well as the horizontal lines running at top and bottom of the card base. What a fun little tool--I bought mine at Joan Fricker's Monday sale, found here.

I stamped my Northwoods Rubber Stamps image onto SU Shimmery White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored my image with multiple Copic markers.

After coloring my image, I applied SU Crystal Effects for the vase of the card. You can see the glassy effect and Flower Soft much better in this picture:

Once my Crystal Effects had totally dried, I began my work with my Flower Soft colors. I used Sweet Pea, Lemon Yellow, and Lavender, as well as Flower Soft Glue.

I finished my design with some lovely May Arts Ribbon, purchased from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I hope your Sunday is wonderful--we will be travelling about two hours away to visit my youngest son who has flown in from Colorado for a wedding.

Thanks for stopping by!
