Product Review & Flower Soft Tutorial Video!

Hi everyone! Today's Product Review/Tutorial is all about Flower Soft! You know how much we love our Flower Soft here at Our Daily Bread designs!!! If you ever get the chance to visit our show booth, you'll have a chance to try Flower Soft for yourself. If not, grab a cuppa and enjoy the video below, which shows just how easy it is to use!

If you are new to Flower Soft, there are many kits available which make it easy to get started. The "Floral Card Making Starter Kit" may be a route you would like to take, since it includes a variety of pre-printed card toppers (from other kits), 3 colors of Flower Soft Sprinkles, Flower Soft Glue, Bouquet wires, foam squares, an idea book, plus written instructions. Check out the starter kit HERE to see the complete "ingredients" list.

As mentioned in the video, the pre-printed card topper I used on the card below can be found in the Starter Kit, but also in the Springtime Toppers Kit as well.

Here are the other items used for this card:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Scripture Collection 8';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Tangerine Tango and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: My Mind's Eye 'Follow Your Heart - Be Happy';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black;
Accessories: Flower Soft Springtime Card Toppers Collection, Flower Soft Sprinkles: Marigold, Diamond Range 'Ruby' and 'Amethyst', Flower Soft Glue, Foam Squares, Bow Easy, Grosgrain Ribbon, Zva Creative Pearls, Paper Piercer;
Size: A2.

There is a wide variety of new Card Making Kits.....(check them out HERE), which include not only the beautiful pre-printed card toppers, but include the card base, foam squares (to pop up your layers for a 3d effect), and envelopes as well. I have used the "Recipes for Friends" Card Making Kit to create this adorable sample. There are eight cards in each kit. To cover the Teddy Bears, I used Ultra-fine 'Sand' and Ultra-fine 'Earth' from the "Teddy Bear Textures" set, a three-pack of Flower Soft Ultra-fine 'Sand', 'Earth', and 'Polar White'.

Here is a close-up, which shows how the Ultra-fine Flower Soft mimics fur perfectly!!

Also popular are the Scenic Window kits....each kit has two each of four beautiful window scenes....cut out the layers, pop up with foam squares, add a card base and Flower Soft sprinkles, and you'll have a gorgeous card which looks like you spent days to make!!! My sample below is from the Oriental Scenic Windows Kit. There are many window kits to choose from ....check them out HERE!

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Sentiments Collection';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Cajun Craze and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: SEI 'Homestead';

If you don't care for hand-cutting, try the new Die-cut Dimensionals kits....all of the pieces are die-cut....just punch them out of the page, pop up the die cut pieces, add Flower Soft and a card base and have an easy, fast, and beautiful card! There are two wildflower kits, a new butterfly kit, and a Christmas Poinsettia Kit....check them out HERE!
