SOS Challenge #31 - Soft as a Snowflake

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is Soft as a Snowflake. This time we ask you to dig out the Flower Soft, felt, snowflake stamps, papers, bubble stickers, puffy embellishments, flocking, fun flock, fabric flowers ... as long as it has something "soft" on it and/or an element of snow (snowmen, snowflakes, snowy scenes) - it works! OR use a Day for Daisies image! I think that's a TON of options!

Here's what I did:

I flocked him!!! (OMG, you have no idea how I've wanted to say that!) Okay, seriously, this is a 100% stash card. I had an extra (failed/mis-cut) MFT snow man stamped on a piece of white, and I figured out I could cut him out with that oval die and even though the bottom of the image was a hack, I could over that up, no problem.

I colored him with Copics, then got to work flocking him. (hee hee, no, I won't stop). Having learned my lesson about white flock being a magnet for the non-white flock, I did the blue scarf first, THEN did the white. Poifect! Lookie:

The Basic Grey papers were all still out, stuck into the front of the 6x6 pad, so I used them. Done.

Next, mostly because this cra ... er, stuff was still out on my desk, and also because that awesome piece of paper came for freeeeee with my Silhouette glitter pens, I used it with the red felt snow flake to make this:

Oh, look, that handsome folded and sewed ribbon is crooked. Sigh. There is a pool of Crystal Effects under that snow flake to hold it in place. The Merry Christmas is from a Taylored Expressions Poinsettia stamp set.

Here's a shot of that paper so you can see there really is red in it, and also so you can actually see the sentiment:

Niiice, eh?  I love that piece of paper. Again - ALL STASH, PEOPLE!

Okay, now it's your turn! Go find something in your stash that passes for "soft" and USE IT to make a card. Then go over to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You are the queen of stash-blasting! Love the flocked snowman and the cute red snowflake card too!

  2. I love this card, Leslie! Your snowman turned out so well. And that BG is always a great choice :)

  3. in reply to line 1, paragraph 3, i really REALLLLLLLY want to say, "WAHEY--you're a FLOCKER!" but i cannot help but feel that a nicely brought up young lady such as myself would not say that to an awesome friend such as yourself. so alas, i shall say instead: "WOOHOO! it's FLOCKIN' FABULOUS!!!!!!!" ♥♥♥♥ which, of course, it is! also the stashiness of both cards AND the fact that there ARE two cards, both of which totally flockin' rock! (SO THERE!!!) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
