3 Ways to Use Flock Sheets from Deco Foil

This week the Joy Clair Stamps is teaming up with Thermoweb and sharing some amazing inspiration and projects using many of Thermoweb’s wonderful products and pairing them with Joy Clair stamps.

One of the new products Thermoweb released this year was the Flock Transfer Sheets. I LOVE these. They are so much fun to play with and add so much texture your cards. Not to mention they are much less messy than regular flock, but work just as well! Today in my video I’m sharing three of my favorite ways to use the flock transfer sheets, but these can be tailored to fit your cardmaking style, too! You can watch the video below!!

Some supplies used today were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I stand behind 100%. To see what companies I currently or have previously designed for you can head HERE.

All three of these cards feature very easy techniques and the flocking sheets are super easy to work with! They come in a great variety of colors and my favorites are the white & black! I love to use the black for sentiments and the white is great for that as well, but it’s awesome for adding fluffy clouds to scenes!

While the white and black are my favorites, the colors are awesome as well and they’re what I used to make a bright and colorful background for my first card. I started by covering a piece of white cardstock with “dry” adhesive and then cut strips of the flocking sheets in different widths. I laid those pieces, fluffy side down, against the adhesive to create a great striped background!

I knew the No Probllama stamp set would be the perfect addition to this background! I stamped a quick scene and colored it in quickly with a set of Leisure Arts markers. This card is so colorful but was pretty easy to throw together!

Ok, now onto one of my favorite ways to use flocking sheets – die cutting them! I absolutely love using the black flocking sheets as my sentiments. It is such an easy way to add dimension, texture and interest to simple cards. There are two ways to do this. The first way is what I used on my card below and you can watch the full process in the video tutorial, but you can also just simply die cut the sheets!

When using the flocking sheets this way I love to make simple backgrounds to pair the sentiments with. I used the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set to quickly stamp and heat emboss a background full of flowers. I then added a bit of gray ink to complete it! I did want to highlight the sentiment a bit so I adhered it to a strip of vellum to complete the card.

My third card is simple, just like the other two, but it does take a little longer when you account for dry time but this is one of my favorite ways to apply the flock. I used Hot Foil Gel and put it through a stencil. It will go on white and dry clear, then you can run it through your laminator to adhere the flock! Be sure to watch the video tutorial for all the details.

I paired my flicked background with the castle image from the Heir of God stamp set. But instead of using a verse from that set, I added a happy birthday sentiment to finish this card!

All of these techniques are super easy and the results are great! Not to mention you can tailor all of these technique to YOUR cardmaking style, occassion, or recipient. The flocking sheets are just really a lot of fun to experiment and play with!
