Fun Flock...How to Use it!

I had one of my customers get some of the fun flock but wanted some ideas on how exactly you use this product. For those of you that have never heard of fun flock let me describe it for you. Fun flock is white and it is almost a fine furry/fiber type product. It's great for adding a snowy touch to a scence or perhaps the fur on a kitten. Something where you want it to really have texture. I did this quick little card this evening using one of my new favorites from the current Fall/Winter Idea book, Ms. Holiday Cheer Stamp set. Once I had colored in my stamped image with markers and had her ready to adorn, I used liquid glass (another one of my favs) and applied to the brim of her hat and trim of her coat and then also did a series of dot around the card base. Once I had the liquid glass in place I sprinkled the fun flock over the wet adhesive and then tapped off, much as you would embossing powder or glitter. Be sure you reuse your left over so do your shaking over a craft tray. I allowed the liquid glass to dry and the end result was a snowball effect on the border and an adorable winter adorned girl! I'd love to see your creations using fun flock...remember to always think outside the box!

Many Thanks Video

Hi Everyone,

I got a little free time last night and did another video. Thanks to some suggestions I've made a few changes...I've included order numbers on products as I use them to help if you would like to get one. I've also added a picture of the card to my blog so you can view the completed project to know what's coming up and also to get a more detailed view. Thank you so much for your suggestions and please keep them coming. In this video we cover some shading in stamping. Have fun, enjoy and please be sure to leave a comment.

I also wanted to remind you of my BIG GOAL this month...I'm a little over $600 from hitting the cruise, so any and all orders this month would really be appreicated. Would you like to stock up on Close to My Heart products, earn some freebies and do it over a period of time.. New Hostess Clubs will be starting in October so be sure to contact me if your interested.

Thanks again for watching and go create and inspire.

Video : Halloween Card using the Brayer and Embossing Technique

I'm really excited about the videos I've started doing. I've had such positive feedback..thank you. In this video I'm using one of my favorite tools...THE BRAYER! I've got a neat technique that I just can't wait to share with you all. Also, please remember for this month I'm really trying to up my sales because I'm so close to qualifying for the cruise with Close To My Heart, so every order is appreciated. Plus this is a great month for you to order stamps, because if you order sixty dollars in our stamps (excluded stamp of the month and personalized) you'll get an awesome card kit for FREE!!! So everyone wins. Enjoy the video and please let me know if you would like to see a specific product used or technique demonstrated in future videos and thank you so much for watching.
