Flower Soft - Part 1

For the next few weeks, I'm going to post some note pad covers that use Flower Soft which I got from Paper Wishes.  To see the basics of making a note-pad cover, check here.  You can see that I embossed them with some Cuttlebug embossing folders that I have. This example is a vase of flowers - based on a digi-stamp. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I got it.  (If it is yours, please let me know so I can give you the credit!)  Here are the steps I took:
  • Assemble basic notepad cover.
  • Print digi-stamp and trim it to a rectangle.
  • Color in the digi-stamp with markers (I used Marvy Markers).
  • Add dots of flower soft glue and add flower soft - let dry.
  • Ink the edges of the rectangle.
  • Using one of the nestabilities dies and the Big Shot (or similar machine), cut and emboss the small scalloped oval to frame the greeting.
  • Stamp the greeting with a clear stamp from a Christmas set of stamps from Paper Wishes.
  • Draw around embossing with a pen to add to the frame.
  • Glue it all in place & you're done!
Here's another one done in a similar way with different colors. This pad opens the other way. I used a peel-off border to edge the rectangle, and stamped the greeting directly onto the notepad cover.

These are just lovely. I am inspired to get out the flowersoft and look at my digi stamps.
