Autumn Blessings

I have something very fun to share today.  Flower Soft is sponsoring the Friday Challenge #40 for JustRite Stampers over at the JustRite Inspiration Blog so be sure to pop over for the details. (Psst….if you don’t know what Flower Soft is, click the link and pop over for a look!)   I guess you could call me a wallflower, because for the past years I’ve been watching everyone have fun with Flower Soft but I’ve never tried it myself.  Now that I have my hot little hands on some, I’m amazed at what texture it adds to a project.  I kept thinking that I needed to stamp some flowers or trees to use it but honestly, it’s an embellishment and you can put it anywhere! 
For my card today I’m using the JustRite Original Autumn Blessings set and this particular stamp I had not inked up.  With fall in the air, I thought the basket of apples would be perfect.  My images are stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I cut/embossed a panel with Spellbinders Labels Sixteen and cut a border using Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and Classic Ovals SM.   On the back of a strip punched with a Martha Stewart Punch, I added clear adhesive from a sticky tape then covered the area with three fall colors of Flower Soft.  It added texture in colors that compliment my stamped image :-)

Accessories:  Flower Soft – Ultra Fine Sage, Ultra Fine Strawberry, Ultra Fine Toffee, Spellbinders Labels Sixteen, Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG, Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM, Zva Creative Pearls, May Arts Satin Ribbon, Martha Stewart Infinite Loops Border Punch, Copic Markers – YG03, YG67, R05, R29, Y38, YR31, W1, 0, E35, E30

    Beautiful card !! Amazingly different way to use flower soft!! Now I need to buy some flower soft :) If I ever get a dedicated scrap room I will name it “The Becca Room.” Most of the stuff I have is because I saw how you used it.ReplyCancel

    You and your husband have been in my prayers and lingering in my heart. I heard a sermon last night at our revival and I just wanted to share some high points of encouragement.
    2nd Chronicles 20 – Victory in the Valley. We know that Satan thinks he has won this fight, but the word tells us that the battle is not ours – It’s the Lords. All God wants us to do (to have victory in the valley) is (1) show up at the fight (even though we don’t have to lift a finger. Showing up speaks of our faith. (2) Stand Still (shows our fortitude-wait on the Lord) (3) See the salvation of the Lord and (4) shout in advance, as you advance and then shout again. The victory is ours! We know that God has all power to heal. Let’s just keep believing.ReplyCancel
