Flower Soft and The {Stamps} of Life Blog Hop!

Are you ready for some fun?

The {Stamps} of Life and Flower Soft Design Teams are playing together for this hop!

As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 6 prize winners chosen randomly from the comments left on the blogs!

What can you win? 3 prize packages from Flower Soft and 3 stamps sets from The {Stamps} of Life!!!

The prize winners will be announced on the Flower Soft blog and The {Stamps} of Life blog on Wednesday July 14th. Good luck!

Ok, on with my project! So you may remember this card from February's special release of the TinyAnd2Cute stamps.



It's a standard 4.25 x 5.5 card. I've had that DP lying around since forever (remember, I've been paper crafting since 1995!) so I'm not terribly sure where it came from. The rest is just cardstock and ribbon and stamps. I mounted the cupcake and sentiment using 3-D foam adhesive to give the card some dimension. It was quick and easy, which is what I need with two small children running around this place!

I decided to take my Baby Pink Flower Soft and add some texture to the stamped cupcake sprinkles. It was fast, easy, and added so much to the card! I must advise you, however, NOT to put your FlowerSoft into a styrofoam bowl. Paper plates work much better, as they aren't rife with static! I had a good laugh at myself over that error this morning. I will blame it on the fact that I hadn't had my caffeine-laden tea latte yet.




Want even more inspiration? Do you like video tutorials? Make sure and check out both The {Stamps} of Life and Flower Soft TV for weekly videos, specials and product news!!!

  3. Love the taupes and the pinks together. The cupcake is delicious too. I know what you mean about patterned paper, I've had some for eyons too but I can't seem to cut it up. I just cut some up into 6x6 and the other day I needed a full 12x12 and I kicked myself. LOL...Gotta do it sometime right!?
