More Fun Flock and some Flower Soft - Poodles of laughter - MPS

This is my design team project for My Pink Stamper!  Click here to see great projects from the rest of the design team!

I had so much fun making this card!  I used Fun Flock and Flower Soft to make the poodle 'furry'.  I also made the white ruffle under the ribbon with crepe paper. Super easy!

The poodle on this card was cut from the Create a Critter cartridge and the cute stamp came from My Pink Stamper.  Check out the videos below to see how to apply the flock and the flower soft!

One of my favorite parts on this card is the crepe paper ruffle and the black stitching (see video for tutorial).

Here are some close up shots of the poodle:

This first video shows how I made the crepe paper ruffle and how to sew around the card base:

Part 2 shows how I made the poodle, including how to apply fun flock and flower soft.  Enjoy!:


  1. I love your poodle - I so "need" to get the Create a Critter cart and some fun flock (I love the way it looks on the poodle and the deer). Congrats on being a "My Pink Designer"

  2. YOU ARE THE BOMB!!!;) I just LOVE all of your Beautiful details in your card! OMG, thank you for reminding me that flock still exists! lol.... I use to be ADDICTED to that stuff!!
    Great job my friend!
    Big Pink Hugs,

  3. OH WOW! This is a gorgeous poodle! I have never used flock! Will have to try it out :) Thanks for your inspiration!

  4. Your card is absolutly adorable! I love every detail, the flocking, stitching, the ribbon and the little tag on the side, WOW!!! THank you so much for showing us how to do the flocking, I have really always wondered how they do it. It is such an honor to serve on the same design team as you and I am enjoying getting to know you!
    Bog Hugs,

  5. Another awesome card. I just LOVE it!!! Your deer card and video inspired me to get out my Xyron and fun flock and give it another try. I made a cute and fuzzy white teddy bear that I posted on my blog. Thanks for the fun tips and tricks.

  9. Love the flower soft for the poodle! Gotta get some. Thanks for the tip about the straight pin in the glossy accents. Great project!

  10. I love your card! I think the crepe paper ruffle is so awesome, I can't wait to try that out! AND your REAL stitching is great!! Glad to be on the DT with you!

  11. What a sweet card, Kimberly! I am loving your flock and flower soft projects. I'm going to have to try these techniques. I'm so excited to be on the design team with you!

  12. thanks for sharing another great card. I really like the flock as fur technique. I still need to get this cartridge to try it, though!

  13. What a great card!!! I'm new to your blog and I'm just loving all your creative ideas! However, it's getting expensive to watch your videos because now I'm convinced that I NEED to get flower soft, fun flock, and a Xyron. LOL.

  14. Hello! I love your card I was wondering what size card and mats did you use? If you don't mind sharing.

    Thanks a bunch!

  15. Thanks! I believe this is a standard A2 size card. It has been so long that I can't remember all of the details of this card anymore. Detailed instructions are in the 2 videos. :)

  16. Just found your site. What a great card. I love the poddle and the use of fun products. Crate paper never crossed my mnd to use. Can't wait to go and some. Great video.


Your comments make my day. Thanks so much!
