edited to add - the colored fluff for flowers and snow is a make your own product that is similar to something you buy that sounds like Power Loft, but starts with an F and an S. I have edited this blog post and my videos for the last time trying to make this company happy.
Hey everyone! By now if you are a Squigglefly newsletter subscriber you have received your newsletter! I wanted to be sure you noticed that there is a coupon at the bottom of the newsletter. The coupon is good until October 19th, and there's no better time to shop than now with all of the new images out!
I hope you had a great day yesterday. I certainly did! The weather here was perfect! We had blue skies
with just enough clouds to cover the sun now and then so it didn't get too warm
I spent a lot of time outside with Riley. she was really loving being outside and I snapped some pictures of her. This one is especially cute because I put a dandelion behind her ear and she left it there!
Well, I've got some fun stuff to show you today! First of all let me show you my card

I used the new image from Crissy Armstrong called Christmas With Oswalda I colored it with copic markers and then added some faux flower soft on the ground and the ball and brim of her hat.
You know the other day I said that I thought you could probably make your own polar white flower soft by grating styrofoam? Well, I decided to give it a try. It worked great! Click on any picture for a close up.
I bought some of these styrofoam balls at the dollar store
Then I simpley rubbed them together and let it grate itself! Here is a comparison of the styrofoam and the polar white flower soft
Then I wanted to try my hand at coloring it. I used some re-inkers and just laid some drops around a pile of styrofoam and then mixed it together with a pencil. It worked great!
I made a video showing you how I did it. It's quick, easy, fun, and a real money saver! Plus if you only need a little of a particular color you can make as much as need! Here's the video. I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for looking!
EDITED TO ADD- The original video had to be edited and here is the revised video
