This Christmas card was made using Fun Flock. Fun Flock is this really cool furry stuff that you can add to stamping and other art, to make it all fuzzy! I love the Fun Flock I got from Stampendous!
To create this card, I started with a green card base, then stamped the Christmas chicks and "Merry Christmas" saying on white cardstock. Then I double mounted both, on red. To the greeting, I added holly and berries. For the chicks, I used my Quickie Glue Pen, to add glue to tiny spaces for the different colors of flock. I used the following colors of Fun Flock: Caramel Latte Tan; Envious Green; Citrus Orange; Snow White; Chili Pepper Red; Lemonade Yellow. To ease the placement of the flock, I used my reverse tweezers. I also covered the work with a white paper and used a brayer on top, just to make sure that all the flock attached to the card. Using the brayer just makes me feel better about it sticking. I also do this with glitter, sometimes.
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
