A Holiday Challenge

It's one of my favorite times of the year! I so love the holiday season! This month our design team was challenged to create something special for this time of year. I so love all of the beautiful creations they each came up with!

Here's a little something from one of our team members who is moving on this month. We have so enjoyed having her on our team and will greatly miss her. This is from the talented Charmaine.
One more....

Don't you love that! The Flower Soft toppers are so easy to work with. Charmaine did such a great job with this one!

Jennifer created a little Christmas ornament with one of our newer products.

The image can be printed out from our new CD. The CD is full of so many wonderful products. You get the image sheets that are ready to cut out and 'pop' up as well as many other decorative papers for you to print and use on all of your holiday cards and gifts. More to come about this fabulous new goodie. You can find more about all of these goodies at the Flower Soft website. There is also a topper set that is ready to be used with the new domes.

Be sure and check out the rest of the team to see what they came up with for this months challenge.

If you get a chance to play be sure and let us know by leaving a link to your project in this post. We love to see all the creative ways everyone is using their Flower Soft.

Have a good one!

Clean and Simple Trio

Jeanne Streiff is one of our newer Flower Soft Design Team members, joining us earlier this month. We've been WOW'd by her work and love her clean and simple style. These are her lastest 3 projects using Flower Soft.

What a refreshing winter card with the snow laden tree and snow covered ground! Polar White Flower Soft was used.

Once again, Polar White makes the perfect snow for this important looking snowman!

Here Jeanne used Black Flower Soft on her buzzing bee's body and the fun button type embellishments!

If you'd like to check out more of Jeanne's creations using Flower Soft, you can find them on her Blog here. Just keep scrolling down to see more and more!

Again, many thanks for stopping in today. We have much more to share, so please return!

Flower Soft for Halloween

It doesn't take much Flower Soft to add a little POP and ZING to a project. Black Flower Soft and Polar White Flower Soft brought this fun image to life with minimal time and effort.

Sharon Johnson turned the black buttons on their clothes into fun black pom poms by adding the Black Flower Soft and she gave the pumpkin head a little frost, or hair, using the Polar White Flower Soft. The extra dimension and texture the Flower Soft gives a project brings it to life! You can see all the Flower Soft products here. You can check out Sharon's Blog to see the rest of this fun-loving Halloween card.

If you haven't already signed up as a Follower of this Blog, please do so on the right sidebar. We have many fun projects and ideas coming in the weeks ahead and we don't want you to miss them!

Thanks for stopping in today!!!

I love how Deb used her Flower Soft to border both the card and the oval center image. I think this is such a great example of how you can use Flower Soft in so many different ways.

I love how versatile this color is. It's perfect for these flowers.

Jennifer Buck used one of the Flower Soft stamps with her project this month. This stamp is the Wishing Well. Take a peek....

New Product, More Creations

New, new, new! Are you ready for some new Flower Soft? We are so excited about the new releases coming up! Two new colors, new toppers, decoupage! There are so many wonderful additions to the Flower Soft line.
I have a sample to share with you today from all of the design team members. First up, a little something from AJ Otto using the new Polar White and one of the new card toppers.

How cute are those bears! I love this topper and the Flower Soft really adds such nice dimension.
The next one is from Niki Estes.

I love how Niki took the brown Flower Soft to create the ground under the sleeping ant. So cute!
This one is from Sharon Johnson.
Sharon has such elegant style. This is such a beautiful card. I love how she mixed the yellow and blue Flower Soft for the flowers. So very pretty.
The talented Carole Burrage created this one...

Carole added a bit of yellow Flower Soft to the top of the cupcake. How cute! This is also such a creative way to use this product.
Just in time for the 4th, Valerie Stangle created this little cutie...

I love the black Flower Soft added to the little bees. So cute!

Charmaine Ikach took this beautiful watercolored image and added a touch of dimension with her Flower Soft.

I really love the clean look of this card. It really makes the beautiful image just pop right off the card! Stunning!

Next up, one more with another new topper. This one comes from Jennifer Buck.

Jennifer used the punch outs to pop the girl and dog up in this one. The kits that come with the toppers are AMAZING for paper tole/decoupage. Then she added Polar White for the snow. The Polar White is just beautiful! It even has a bit of shimmer to it!

Finally, this one comes from the talented Deb Saaranen.

I really love the way Flower Soft finishes out any card. This is such a wonderful example of how you can give an image even more 'wow'. The Flowers are just stunning and the ground just finishes the whole thing off. So beautifully done.

We hope you've enjoyed these samples from the design team. They have a new challenge today to use a bit of Flower Soft 'out of the box'. Be sure and check out there blogs for more Flower Soft goodness...

A Few Design Team Creations

Happy Sunday! I wanted to take a moment to share a few of the design team members projects. This weeks projects come to you from Sharon Johnson, AJ Otto, and Valerie Stangle. Take a peek.
The first card is from Sharon Johnson.

I love how Sharon used one of the beautiful toppers for this one. It's such a stunning beauty!
The next card comes from AJ Otto.

The bouquets are so pretty. Look for a tutorial on how to create these beauties. We will have one soon.
Next, a beautiful card from Valerie Stangle.

Instead of creating a bouquet, Valerie used the Flower Soft on a stamped image. I love the dimension it creates.
Hope you have a great one!
