I got this softsculpt material from The Thread Studio a while back because I had saw how it could be used in Surface for Stitches, this is a great book to own if you don't already own it.
So, I tried it out with a stamp as you can see below. I stitched with thread the outlines on the tree. I am going to do some more things to this stamp impression and apply it to the Christmas PC swap that we have going on at SurfaceDesign.
I have the softsculpt in black and white. This was my first attempt at using it and I think I would like to try some more abstract things with it. In Gwen's book, she impresses matches and metal objects to this foam like material. It isn't difficult to stitch on and when it is hot you can impress with many objects. Check out Digital Gran...she did wonders with it.
Also, I have two of the most soft well made chenille scarfs from Sue. One will be going to my MIL for an Christmas present.
