Flocking furniture

Hello, Doris here from Cheap Psychology. The first thing I thought of when I saw the gorgeous WOW flock, was how wonderful it would be to stroke a piece of furniture that had been flocked.

Luckily I have got just the thing. A chest of drawers I have not worked on for about a year. I want to cover up of all the pine and so far I have painted and embossed four of the drawers. Today I flocked another drawer and the effect and 'strokability' is amazing!

I experimented with a couple of different ways but to cover a large area, you get the easiest and most even application with spray adhesive. I even managed a two tone effect with the blue and the brown at the bottom. I cut a stencil, and sprayed adhesive for the brown border.The lilac border was cut out on my Silhouette and then covered in glue and flocked.

 
The handles I painted and used some WOW foil over acrylic paint to distress them. The chest of drawers is starting to look very eclectic indeed. Maybe this is the year when I get it finished!!

I used

WT06 Dark Blue Flock and some WT17 Sky Blue Flock over it to soften the colour. You can cover one drawer with one jar of flock and have a little left over.

WT10 Violet Flock for the top border and WT09 Brown Flock for the bottom shadow border.

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
