Fun with fuzzies

A few weeks ago I was going through my blogroll and someone (I hate that I can't remember who!) had a post about Crushed Velvet Flock by Doodlebug Design Inc. The card was super cute, although now I can't even really tell you what it was. I'm pretty sure it was a baby card. Anyway, this stuff is like glitter, only soft and fluffity, and just adorable.


So, I had to get some. And I did. I played with it over the weekend and OH MY GOSH! Such fun!


Here are the two cards I made with the flock (and you can see some of the flowers courtesy of Kristine on the little girl version).





I made the top one first and by the time I started working on the second one it was LATE and I was sleepy. So, I have a few mistakes (can you find them?!), but I think they are still pretty cute. I used the Crushed Velvet Flock on the little elephants and they are so much fun to touch! I used crystal effects on the ears, but I don't like the way there was some bleeding on the 2nd card. Not sure why. I still like the way they turned out, though. :)

The flock, by the way, is really easy to apply. You just sprinkle it over your choice of adhesive - I used my trusty SU! two-way glue. You need to apply it liberally and then press it down to make sure it all sticks. Then, just shake it off. I dusted it into a clean cupcake paper and then funneled it back into the bitty jar it came in. I used white flock over colored ink on both cards.

The flock comes in single bottles and a sampler set with 12 colors, which is what I bought. Has anyone used this on things other than paper? What have YOU flocked? :)

How touchy cute and fun! Love using flock but I don't do it very often! Your cards are great!

I haven't flocked since SU got rid of theirs some years back. I got rid of mine and have regretted it since. Sigh....

LOVE the cards, too! I really like how you incorporated the hodpodge hardware into the bow on the boy one. CUTE!
