Penny Black/Flower Soft Blog Hop


Welcome to the Penny Black/Flower Soft weekend-long celebration! We are all very excited about our first blog hop and that we get to share the 'spotlight' with Flower Soft!!

The card that I made uses Warm & Cold from Penny Black which is one of my favorite Penny Black stamps. The sentiment is from Let It Snow. I also used Ultra Fine Strawberry, Ultra Fine Ocean and Diamond Range Polar White Flower Soft. I have to admit that I didn't have a lot of experience with Flower Soft but I found it really easy and fun to use! Thank you to Flower Soft for introducing me to your product... I am sure I will be using it again!! I love the results!

I guess you may be wondering what is up for grabs....

Soooo cute! FS is a perfect touch for snow and scarf, but I LOVE the little earmuffs and how it makes them pop.

Paula (PEP) said...

I loe the effect of the ear muffs & the way you picked up that colour with the mounting of the image. You really get a sense of the differences in texture too with your use of the Flower Soft on some parts only of the scarf.
