Flower Soft Lampost

I know most of my posts have been Stampin' Up and that is because I am truely faithful to their products. However, once in awhile, I find something that SU does not carry and have to have it. This is one of those times and I thought I would share this project with you.

This card used SU Bashful Blue and Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the Flower Soft Lamp post in Basic Black ink and colored the image with the aqua painter (103954) and the watercolor crayons. After it dried, I stamped the holly leaves around the image with Always Artichoke and added Vintage Christmas Flower Soft and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (102023). After this dried, I added Polar White Flower Soft and more Dazzling Diamonds, then fussy cut (just means it isn't exact) the image. I added the image to a 2 1/2" x 7 1/2" piece of Whisper White, which I sponged around the edges with Bashful Blue. The base card is from Bashful Blue and I embossed the edges with a holly border folder and sponged over it with Bashful Blue ink.

I hope you enjoy this side trip from my SU only projects. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Is the stamp from SU! ? Or is that the product that is different? I know I've never heard of Vintage Christmas and Polar White Flower Soft. What is it? The picture is so small on my screen I can't tell. SU! or not, this is a very pretty card. :)

  2. Sandra, the stamp and flower soft are actually Flower Soft products. It gives things a 3D look, especially floral and animal images. Flower Soft has their own site, so check it out. Their products are also available at other craft outlets.
