JustRite & Flowersoft Friday Challenge

Good morning! Today, is the Friday Challenge on the JustRite Blog and the challenge is to create a Fall project using the Fall colors from Flowersoft. I really like using Flower Soft , it really adds a lot of texture and detail to your projects. Have you tried the NEW Ultra Fine Flower Soft? I am loving the Ultra Fine!!

I created a couple of projects for today's Fall colors from Flowersoft Challenge. I love creating fun little shape cards and the S4-227 Pumpkins die template from Spellbinders™ is perfect for making a shape card. Then once I colored and added the image from CL-02000 Hangin' Around from JustRite Stampers and the Fall colors from Flowersoft I was able to create a fun little Fall pumpkin shape card. I also created a pumpkin to use as part of a Fall table-scape. Once the pumpkin was made I added some Flowersoft and a tag with a JustRite sentiment for a perfect finishing touch.

Here's the details on how I created the card. I started by stamping the scarecrow image from the NEW CL-02000 Hangin' Around stamp set from JustRite Stampers with Rich Cocoa ink. Then I colored the image with Copic markers. Next I added Chestnut Roan ink to the inside of the S4-112 Classic Ovals Small die template to create a reverse stencil around the outer edge to the diecut. Then I started to add the different Fall colors of Flowersoft to the image. I used Ultra Fine Toffee on the corn stalks.Next I added Ultra Fine Sage for the grass.I also wanted to give the look of fallen leaves so I added Autumn Flowersoft in a few places. I think the Autumn Flowersoft really finishes the Fall look!Here is a close up of the pumpkin shape card. To create a shape card leave the die template just slightly off the fold and tape to hold in place. I used Core'dinations cardstock and sanded the edges to make the embossing pop. I added Ultra Fine Toffee Flowersoft to the stem of the pumpkin, added a bow with some twill and popped up the image using 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.On the inside of the card I stamped a sentiment from JB-09800 Nature Nested Sentiments & Verse with Rich Cocoa ink and added a few pearls.Here is a close up look at the Flowersoft on the scarecrow image. I love the added texture!

I also created a darling little three dimensional pumpkin to use as part of a tablescape. I used the Grand Calibur™ and LF-124 Grand Scalloped Circles die #2 from Spellbinders™ to create the pumpkin. I cut/embossed and sanded five scalloped circles and adhered each of them together. Then I added the stem and vines. I used Glimmer Glam Chandelier on the vines and then added Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels to the entire piece. I added Toffee Flowersoft to the Stem and Sage to the vine. I also took one of the Flowersoft wires, cut it in thirds, added glue and Sage Flowersoft and set aside to dry. Once the wires were dry I made curly vines and glues them in place. I also created a tag to go with the pumpkin using JB-09800 Nature Nested Sentiments & Verse and JB-09520 Clear Horizontal Stamper (1-3/8'' x 2-1/2''). I used Rich Coco ink to stamp the sentiment and inked around the edges. Then I added some twill and tied the tag to the pumpkin.
