Hi there! It’s Andrea with you, and I’m sharing two snowman-themed cards featuring Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets and Glitz Glitter Gel. I just love snowmen, and I think the texture of the Flock and Glitter Gels adds so much to the theme!
Flock-Piecing Stamped Images
I wanted to use flock to “dress” my cute snowmen, and the technique I came up with is surprisingly simple and without any mess. Instead of inking up the stamp, I firmly pressed the stamp into the flock to create an impression and then trimmed it with scissors. Be careful not to press too hard or with your fingernails as you’re trimming the flock, or you will leave indentations. Also, you have to cut out the image pretty soon after you “stamp”, or you may not be able to see the outline. To give a little definition to the scarves, I added a bit of shading with Copics. When coloring flock with Copics, don’t color as you do on paper or you will scrub off the flock. Instead, I used the stippling technique and lightly dotted the marker tip where I wanted the shadow.
Hugs & Kisses Card
For both cards, I used Honey Bee’s Snow Buddies stamp set to create those adorable snowmen. I colored the images with Copics before cutting them out and attached the flock elements with Mixed Media Adhesive. For this cute snowlady, I used the following colors of Deco Foil Flock: Carnation Pink and Think Pink.
Adding Glitz to an Inked Background
To create my background, I first blended the center of an A2 panel of white cardstock with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide. After spraying the back of my stencil with Pixie Spray, I applied Rina K. Designs Poppin’ Pink Neon Glitz Glitter Gel.
Assembling the Card
Once the gel was dry, I die-cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die. I used the Memory Tape Runner XL to mat the panel with pink cardstock and to adhere it to a white card.
I die-cut a black banner and heat-embossed a sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s Roundabout Sentiments. I adhered the banner with foam squares in the center and Mixed Media Adhesive on the ends. Finally, I attached the snowman with foam squares and brushed on some clear sparkle.
Love You Snow Much Card
For my second snowman, I used Black Velvet and Think Pink Deco Foil Flock for the hat and Purple Punch for the scarf.
Creating a Snowy Background with Glitz
Using a stencil, I masked the bottom half of a 3.5″ x 8.5″ panel of white cardstock. I blended the top half with Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides. I placed a snowflake stencil over the top half and applied White Glitz Glitter Gel with my Stencil Pal.
Adding Flock to Die-cut Letters
For my die-cut sentiment, I first cut “snow” from a Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheet. After removing the liner from the front of the letters, I placed them face down onto Blue Diamond Flock. To transfer the flock, I ran the letters through my diecutting machine. I removed the backing from the letters and attached them to my background.
Assembling the Card
Using my MISTI, I stamped a companion sentiment from Whimsy Stamps’ Snow Flurry set in black. I attached the background to a white card with Gina K. Designs Terrific Tape.
I adhered the snowman with foam squares and brushed on a layer of clear sparkle. To add more interest (and sparkle!) to the background, I attached clear gems to the snowflakes with Ultra Bond Adhesive.
