Hi friends! In today’s video, I will be sharing how to use flock transfer sheets to apply color and fuzzy texture to your cardmaking and craft projects without any mess. I am absolutely in love with the fuzzy texture this stuff adds to cards (you will be petting your cards all day…lol)!

Flocking Transfer sheets have a similar application to foiling, so many of the foiling methods also apply to flock transfer sheets. Be sure to check out these videos I shared using some of my favorite foiling methods which can be applied to flock sheets: 3 Ways To Stamp N’ Foil, Foiled Stamp Layering.
This fuzzy plaid background is so easy to create using 1/2 inch, 1/4 inch, and 1/8 inch double-sided tapes. I started off by creating a criss-cross pattern with the widest tape and stuck the Blue Diamond flock on. Adding lots of pressure with a brayer or die cutting machine (without dies) helps to transfer the flock fully.
Then, I repeated the same steps with the other tapes filling in the gaps of the pattern with Sunshine Yellow and Think Pink flock sheets. I absolutely love how simple and mess-free these flock sheets are to create with!
STENCILED FLOCK BACKGROUND
This background is so much fun to create because it enables you to use your stencils in a new way! For this, I used my Backsplash stencil with Transfer Gel. Then I cut some of the flock sheets into strips and rearranged them together with tape on the back. This creates a beautiful multicolored flock sheet. Then, I ran it through my laminator (flock sheet pretty side down on the gel) to transfer the flock to the design.
Oh, and you are able to use both the positive and negative from the transfer sheets, How awesome! Here are the two backgrounds that I created…
I finished off the card with images and an encouraging sentiment from my Bestest Friends stamp set. This is a perfect card to give to kids to brighten their day!
For this technique, I used an Emboss It pen to color wherever I wanted the flocking to be on my image. Then, I added clear embossing powder and heated it. I added a flock sheet over the embossing and flipped the sheet to apply heat and pressure to the card. This reheats the embossing powder and transfers the flock onto the sheet. For this, I used the Dudes Too stamp set and applied flock onto his sweater and I just love the fuzzy texture it applies!
