Joy to the World

I love the soft look that Sweet Pea Flower Soft gives these Vintage Christmas images!Layout is courtesy of Splitcoaststampers, sentiment is from Impression Obsession.
Sadly, this will be my last post on the Flower Soft blog, as I'll be focusing my energies elsewhere in the coming year... if you like my work, I hope you'll continue to follow me at my blog, Mama Dini's Stamperia! I'm sure you'll still see lots of Flower Soft there! Many thanks to Flower Soft for their generosity, and for allowing me to showcase their products... and big hugs to my fellow designers! Love you girls, and hope to meet some of you in person next year!

Many blessings to you all in the New Year -

Happy Holidays! FSC43

Hey Peeps! Time for another Flower Soft challenge! This weeks challenge, to make a project geared around the holidays. Hopefully you are all having a WONDERFUL holiday! Life can get so crazy this time of year. It can be so easy to forget what it's a
ll about. I've really enjoyed having some quiet time to reflect on all of the many blessings my family has....that often comes between times of complete chaos....but maybe that's why those moments are so very special! ;-)

I've had a bit of extra time to get in a little paper crafting. I pulled out a topper from the Cute Christmas line for my card today....

Hope you all have a chance to play. This week we are playing for a pot of Polar White Flower Soft and a package of Display Globes. LOVE these globes! They are great for soooo many things! As always, link your card to this post to be included for this weeks challenge. A winner will be chosen next Wednesday so be on the lookout for an email announcing if it's you! If you are uploading your creations to SCS please use the keyword FSC43.

Check out the rest of the DT to see what they have created....

Have a great day!

There must have been some magic...

Winter is the perfect time for Polar White Flower Soft - whether you're adding snow to a scene, or fluffy trim to a warm coat, the texture and dimension are perfect. On this card, I worked in both! These are stamps from Impression Obsession's latest stamp release.Have you entered the "Think Snow" challenge yet? There's still time...!

Thanks for looking!

Add some soft sponging to the edges .........easy peasy!!!

Happy Stamping and have a wonderful Holiday!

FSC41 - Think Snow

Are you thinking snow? It's that time of year and here in the Indianapolis area we are still waiting for substantial snowfall. For me, it just doesn't seem quite like the holidays until the ground is covered in the white stuff. This coming from a girl from the south!

This weeks Flower Soft challenge is to 'Think Snow'. We are all creating a little something with that in mind. I pulled out a little Polar White and one of my FAVORITE toppers, Window Shopping, and here's what I came up with.....

I love this image. I opted for a simple layout to really let the topper 'pop'. Here's a close up with the layers....

One of my favorite things about this kit is that the pieces are all die cut. I love that I don't have to cut each piece out. It makes for an easy assembly.

Be sure and check out the entire team:

Have a good one! :-)

Christmas tinsel

Christmas tree image are so fun to decorate with Flower Soft! Here are two cards using the same image (from Our Daily Bread designs), but decorated very differently. You can find out more about these cards on my blog, Mama Dini's Stamperia. The direct links are below each picture.
My first card is colored with Touch Twin Markers and decorated with Gold Flower Soft from the Diamond Range. I also used gold Peel-Offs around the edge of the main panel.
This card was colored using Touch Twin Markers, and decorated with Silver Flower Soft from the Diamond Range.

Same image, two very different effects! I love the sparkle and dimension that the Flower Soft gives!

Thanks for looking -

Flowers and Flower Soft

One product that Flower Soft offers is downloads. I am using a flower set from a Floral Designs Download set.  There are several sets available and what is cool is there are quite a few different shapes in one set and they work with Spellbinders Nestabilities.
 My card is created using the Clematis set.  I love the purples in the flowers. 
After I cut the label shape out with my Spellbinders Nestabililties, I used extra flowers to layer the flowers and then accents them with Purple and Silver Ultra Fine Flower Soft.
