Title: Let it Snow
Hostess: Anitamocha
Keyword: DEC11VSNMINI4
Day/Date: Friday, November 11th
Time: 8:00pm EST

When I think of winter, I think of snow. Since I am in CA, I don't get snow so I am challenging you to create your own snow.

My challenge is for you to make a card or project using Flower Soft, Flocking or something along those lines on your card or project.

Here is a tutorial for making your own Flower Soft.


VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday November 14.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, DEC11VSNMINI4, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

Aha! So THAT"S what it's for... I've been wondering since I saw the shopping list, lol!

Crafty Math Chick 11-11-2011 04:01 PM

DOH! I forgot to purchase styrofoam at Michaels! (I knew I would forget something when I could not find my list!!) Guess I will have to make another trip tomorrow... ;)

melissa59 11-11-2011 04:01 PM

I'm also in California ... no snow, no styrofoam balls, no Flower Soft, only flock I have is brown & green. This is going to take some thought. But I'll find a way to pull it off.

jpmayo 11-11-2011 04:01 PM

OOOH FUN!

I can't wait to see all the snowwwwww...even though I'm totally allergic to the stuff, lol ;)

Teehee!

ravengirl 11-11-2011 04:04 PM

Cute sample! This challenge may take it out of me...I'm going to do some flocking!

Anitamocha 11-11-2011 04:05 PM

Well in CA brown is the color of grass in CA in the winter that would work. LOL!
Meredith, I never made it out of the house. Great excuse to go shopping again.
Hi to everyone else! Can't wait to see what you make.

ohmypaper! 11-11-2011 04:07 PM

I am delighted with my homemade flower soft. I had to try it after Lee posted our shopping list. I made some more for bird feed(for cards!!) again today. I added some yellow flocking to the colored styrofoam. Turned out so pretty. So now I am off to use my styrofoam white!!!! (a little easier then coloring it)

jpmayo 11-11-2011 04:07 PM

ewww....my flower soft is ivory....sorta like a dog came walking by my snow :rolleyes:

but I do have white Sparkly Fluff, that will work!

hmm I think this can be done also grating white cardstock with a cheese grater, I have done it before, I bet it would be similar

That is a good idea. I hadn't thought of that.

ckbythesea 11-11-2011 04:09 PM

Anita, rubbing the styrofoam balls together to make shiny fluff worked like a charm! Now I'll just have to put it on a card! LOL!

That's creative! Maybe I should do that instead of the fun flock. Then maybe I would have enough energy for the next few challenges ;)

Beate 11-11-2011 04:13 PM

Fun, fun challenge! I used Sparkly Fluff instead of Flocking and Flower Soft. I hope that still works.

You Warm My Heart

LuvLee 11-11-2011 04:13 PM

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Flower Soft!!!! I have tons of colors!!! This is the new Ultra Fine in White. Awesome!! And no, they don't pay me to say that! ;)

Go Flock a Sock ;) Retro Stockings

Only a stamper would know that doesn't mean anything bad :p

Scrapacat 11-11-2011 04:18 PM

What about glitter over the snowy areas on an image? Anita - would that be acceptable?

LuvLee 11-11-2011 04:20 PM

There's a glittery challenge that will be coming eventually.....;)

What was that?

muzbysmom 11-11-2011 04:37 PM

I had white fun flock for the snow - I hope it shows in the picture. I used Elmers Glue All to hold it down. Colored with Copics. Used my Creative Memories Circle Cutter since I'd already put down the fun flock and it wasn't dry so I couldn't used my cicle nesties. The scalloped circleis a die (Sizzix). The Dots EF reminds me of snowballs (it's not swiss dots but the Polka Dots folder).

I'm actually having a hard time staying up but I will be here for the 11:11:11 challenge (which should be at 10:11:11 central time).

ravengirl 11-11-2011 04:40 PM

Okay, I loaded up my branches with fun flock for this challenge.

smadson 11-11-2011 04:42 PM

I am here!!! I had to warm up dinner, eat, and then make the last card! But ready to go! I have some flower soft, wait for it.... I have never even used it. I have had it for over a year! So, here I go! :)

I forgot to add you can easily add glitter to this too, but it comes out really soft as well, hope it's a suitable substitute, as it will be what I have to do if I get a chance to do this challenge :)

Here is my Let it Snow card:
DEC11VSNMINI4 Makin' Snow by melissa59 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I couldn't even find a cotton ball. But I did have a disposable makeup pad, the round kind with a bit of cotton in the middle. I cut open the textured stuff, plucked out the layer of cotton and glued down the little pieces.

I have to wait for the glue to dry on this. The flower soft keeps falling off when I pick up the card. I will go to next challenge, and when my glue drys, I will finish it and upload it. :)
