flower soft friends!

we had a baby shower of one of the ladies in Pezzy's playgroup (more are pregnant than not right now in that group) and so of course i made a bag for our gift! and Julee's Mojo sketch was perfect for some thing big - lots of fun layers and things going on!!

i decided to experiment a bit with an idea i had for the flower soft and i am quite pleased! FUZZY ADORABLE LITTLE BABY ANIMALS!!!
the paper is from DCWV - nana's nursery baby boy stack and SU Rainbow Sherbet and solids are SU. i punched the border design with one of my new EK success slimline punches - OH what a dream! not onle are they cute and not only do they store flat they punch SUPER easy too.
The baby buggy is one of my first stamp sets and is from doodlebug and the buttons are SEI.

i cut these little cuties out using the new arrival cricut cart that i just HAD to have and have not used. the first thing i learned is that it works ALOT better to do the pearl accents first - i used liquid pearls and dimensional pearls - and let them dry. next i just covered them in flower soft glue (not over the pearls of course) and then dumped on the flower soft and tapped it gently into the glue.
LOVE them!!

i used colors from the pastel flower soft kit for these.
what do y'all think????


  1. Marti, I love those fuzzy animals! Just adorable.

  2. What a clever way to use flower soft. They are soooo cute!

  3. O My goodness how did you do this. Love these little fuzzy guys

  4. When looking before reading, I thought these cute, fuzzy little guys were little terry cloth appliques! How sweet they are!!
