Default Is this possible?

I've not used flock before and have a question. A description of Crushed Velvet Flock by Doodlebug says that you can use it with adhesive or glue.

Can you use it with an image stamped in versa mark or SU's craft ink. I'd like to stamp a bunny rabbit and then use brown flock to make it fuzzy. Will that work or is there a different product that I should use?

Thanks for any advice!

Versamark and craft ink are only temporarily sticky. You would have to use Versamark, followed by heat n' stick powder. Or you can use a glue pad, such as this one. They sell them at most online stamping retailers.

Ooh, thanks for the advice!
I've not used the glue pad before. Can you use the standard stamp cleaner (I use SU's) or do you need a special one to remove the glue from the stamp?

You might be able to get away with a glue pen, either the kind that's like a regular pen, or the kind that can be temporary or permanent, or even an embossing pen. I like your idea of a fuzzy bunny ! As far as cleaning, start with a toothbrush and warm soapy water. If it's a woodmount, be careful about how wet you get it, so the stamp doesn't separate from the wood. I use plain baby wipes w/o alcohol to clean all my stamps because I can't be bothered about what is right or wrong ! Only drawback is the acrylics can stain. Best wishes for you project.

If you have a Xxron (spelling?) machine, you could cut your item out first, turn the stamped side into a sticker and cover the whole thing with your flock....

I also agree that the glue pads stink!! I prefer using a Zig glue pen to outline my image or the stamp and stick embossing powder.

thanks for the helpful info!! I had bought a glue pad and played with it. Looked great for a short period of time, but didn't take that long or even minimal handling for the fuzz to come off!

Cheers, Holley
a new project everyday! http://holleybarnhartsblog.blogspot.com/

I bought some brushable glue from Sparkle and Sprinkle which works great for both flock and glitter.

I used a glue pen to fill in the area, then dump the flock on...like glitter. Make sure you color the bunny first with a shade similar to the flock. That way, if you miss anywhere, no one can tell.

I use the flock frequently and suggest a liquid glue of some sort. I use a tacky glue and apply it with a foam brush to get an even coating. You can cut the foam brush small to fit in smaller stamped images.

The heat and stick stuff, I found didn't hold that well and there is a fine line between heating enough and too much. The glue that Sparkle and Sprinkle sells for the flock I found to be too wet and thin and dries too quickly.

It's best to also press down gently on the flock so it gets good contact with the glue and paper. Shake off excess after glue is completely dry.

I made this card last year for easter and filled in the image with a glue pen (zig) and then poured the flocking on top of it. I pushed the flocking into the glue to make sure it was stuck on well.

I did this very thing (flocking a bunny stamped image) on a card this weekend. Check out my OWH bloghop post here.

I stamped the bunny in regular brown dye ink and then used a Zig glue pen and filled in the image with glue and added the flock on top. Worked perfect!

This is a great tip!

Another tip for Doodlebug's flocking is to add a bit of glitter to the flock. If you have a small jar, put a bit of flock and a bit of ultrafine crystal glitter in the jar together and shake it up. This will lift & separate the flock and give you more even coverage. I find that the doodlebug flock (and other brands I've tried) clumps up and doesn't give the coverage I like. A bit of glitter helps separate the flock and I prefer the results.

You can get pretty good hold with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. And, a heat & stick powder (A Muse has one called Simple Stick) works well too!

Have fun!
Linda
