June's Card Workshop

We did three cards this month, using glitter, flocking, and flower soft. As I said in a previous post, I think Flower Soft is a bit pricey, so I only bought one small container. I am sure it will last quite a while since a little goes a very long way. I confess though I think it adds a bit more dimension and texture than flocking does. I've been using glitter for ages, and have used different types of glitter in my card classes before, but this time I showed how to use sticky strip and glitter to get a nice crisp and uniform stripe of glitter on a card. All in all, pretty simple, but it went well.

Hi Jenn! Just stopped by to see what you're up to. Of all your projects I think I love your altered notebooks best - I know that I treasure mine :) I love love the use of the flower soft on the bear stamp! I have been eyeballing flower soft for a while and I have been trying to decide if I "need" some. Thanks for showing such a great use of it! Hope your summer is great!

Love these! The flower soft looks lovely on the flowers. I always forget about using that for some reason and love it when I see other people do it. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Great projects! Love the glitter! I have never tried the flower soft. It does seem pricey, it certainly looks great on the cards.
