Rose Ann, I noticed someone asked about colored Flower Soft. You can purchase it in several different colors at Flourishes.com.

I bought my Flower Soft at STAMPERS! Rubber Stamps and Papercrafts in Victoria, BC, Canada. It's a great place to shop. www.stampers@shaw.ca

Hi, everyone!

Where can you buy it?
You can find more information on Flower Soft (including pricing) here on our Product Review page:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/products/flower_soft/

We have purchasing links on the right side of the page, and many fellow stampers have responded with additional locations, too. I found mine at my local scrapbook store.

Is it the same as flock?
Well, same concept as flock. It's just. . . fluffier. You'll notice that it's a thicker product. When you touch it - it's more springy than soft in the package, almost sponge-y. When applied, it does give a nice, soft look to your flowers and images.

Can it be dyed?
Flower Soft can be colored, yes, but not with water-based ink. You'll want to either airbrush with Copics, or use alcohol-based reinkers. smile

Is it messy?
Like glitter and flock and embossing powder, it does have the potential to be a little messy, yep. Just work over some scrap paper, and follow the suggestions in the Product Focus and tutorials (work over scrap paper and put the product in a bigger container when fluffing for SURE!), and you'll be fine. Also, it may go without saying, but turn the fan OFF! smile

Does it mail well?
It sure does, and when you use the right glue (tacky glue like Aleene's, even Crystal Effects works), that stuff is stuck on! We saw many much-handled samples and the product looked beautiful!!

I am in Canada and for some reason, this product cannot be found anywhere! Do you have any suggestions for someone who is dying to try this wonderful product?

This is a very cute card. I have used the Flower Soft on flowers, but not yet as snow. I like the dimension it gives to the images.
