Flower Soft results




So I ordered the new Flower Soft product everyone is raving about. I was so excited I told you I would share my results when it came in. I have to be honest, I have mixed feelings about it. I purchased the Floral Bouquet Color Selection which contains; 7x Flower Soft® (20ml jars):Delphinium Blue - Fuchsia - Heather - Spring -Sweet pea - Lavender - Summer The cards above were made with Sweet Pea (I think, jars are not labeled) and Lavender. From the pictures on the box the Sweet Pea and Summer look similar. The 7 jar box is a good way to try a few out, but the jars are smaller, only 20ml instead of the single jar size of 30ml. I love the Sweet Pea it is a mixture of pale pink and dark pink, and light green and dark green. I did not like my results with the lavender as well. When I put it on light it almost does not look like enough, but when I add to it, I think it looks creepy, more like a rough beard than flowers. I probably should have chosen a different stamp to apply it to. The demo site made a big deal about how much there is in each jar once you pour it out and fluff it up. I am disappointed in the fact that although it does fluff up, it doesn't go very far. The jars cost about the same as a good jar of glitter or embossing powder, but they don't go as far. I am 1/2 way through 1 jar with only 5 cards. Sorry, I don't mean to sound negative, but I do want to be honest with you. I also purchased the bicycle stamp from the site and I love it. I did alter it a bit to make it look like this. All in all, the stamp was reasonably priced at 9.99, the set was 24.99 and sometimes you have to try something you don't like to find the things you do like. I will definitely order again, next time I will buy the single 30ml jars for 5.99 each and I will probably order the yellow too, for the center of larger flowers. I learned something new while making these cards. I had some patterned paper with umbrella's on it that I had not found a use for. I used it on these cards, only a slight amount of the image shows up and you would not know it was umbrella's unless I told you. The color combination was perfect.
Thank you for reading my blog.

  1. Hey there! Welcome to the world of blogging and card makers! I love your work. I have really been pondering trying the Flower Soft, and your post was extremely helpful! I agree with you that I like the effect of the first card over the lavender one. You made me laugh right out loud with your beard comment! Thanks for sharing your results! Keep up the good work! Best, Curt
