Waffle Flower November release Blog Hop

 Hello! 

Welcome to the Waffle Flower November Release Blog Hop! I’m happy to be hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower to show you all the fun new stuff awaiting you on the Waffle Flower website! Be sure to check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies!

Next on the hop is Rebecca Keppel


Let's see what we have this month!

I have a new die added to my outline collection called Outlined Hearts Die. If you haven't seen my outline before checkout this great bundle - Outlined Shapes Die Bundle.

For my first card I cut out the Outline hearts a few times and filled the die cut with colorful hearts. I applied Glossy accents on some hearts and heat embossed the sentiment. 


On my next card I filled the Heart Die cut with new Layered Flowers. I foam mount the die cuts on a dark brown woodgrain cardstock. Click HERE to see a short clip of how I made this card.
 

And on this card I used Outlined Hearts Die to create a shiny background for the invitation card. I heat embossed the sentiment from Oversized You're Invited Combo with white powder and cut it out with the coordinating die. 


Also we have this big sentiment in a foil version - Oversized You're Invited Foil Plate. The coordinating die from the stamp set works with the foil plate too.

I created a multicolored card background using distress ink and new stencil - Layered Triangles Stencil Duo.

This fun stencil set can be used for the vertical cards too! For this card I foiled the sentiment with a bright pink foil and I decided to create a matching background using Layered Triangles Stencil Duo.


Another beautiful new foil plate is Triangle Cluster Foil Plate. Simple geometric design will work with any occasion cards! I created a small Mini Slimline card using  Additional Mini Slimline Layers Die.


Talking about geometric design I can't say how beautiful the new geometric panel die was designed by JJ Boltin - Arches Panel Die. This die has a coordinating stencil that can be used separately, but it is so much easier to color the inner parts of the die with this stencil! 

I decorated the card with leaves from the Layered Flower Die.


And here is our second new panel die with the coordinating stencils - Quilted Hearts Texture Die. For the card below I cut out a panel with the hearts from a grey cardstock and used the Quilted Hearts Coloring Stencil Duo with Distress Oxide Ink to color the hearts. 

This panel is a little bit smaller than A2, so you can attach it on a colored cardstock to create a nice frame around the pamel. 

And I used Quilted Hearts Coloring Stencil Duo without the panel die to create a background for my next two cards. I adore this pink and black combination! I cut out a big heart using Concentric Hearts Die from a black glitter cardstock and attached it on a piece of vellum.


Another my favorite technique with stencil is creating ton on ton colorful backgrounds. So I used the stencil with the bigger hearts and yellow Distress ink to create slightly visible hearts on a yellow card background. 

I cut out a big sentiment from a white glitter cardstock using - Oversized Love Print.


I want to share with you more cards I made using Concentric Hearts Die because it can be used in so many ways! Here I have another floral heart attached on the wbite panel, that I cut out using Quilted Hearts Texture Die.

Those two cards I made with the same ink blended paper!  On the left card I used the outline die cut and on the right card I used only inner parts! Click HERE to see how I made those cards. 


For my last card I used previously released Oversized Heart Combo stamps and die to create a big sentiment on the heart. 


Thanks so much for staying with me!

Waffle Flower October release Blog Hop

 Hello everyone!

Welcome to the Waffle Flower October Release Blog Hop! I’m happy to be hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower to show you all the fun new stuff awaiting you on the Waffle Flower website!  Be sure to check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies!

Next on the hop is Jennifer McGuire!


As always I have a lot of fun cards to share with you today! 
  For my first card I used a new die and stencils called Layered Boxes Die and Small Prints Stencil they work perfectly together. I placed the cute gift boxes inside of a pink pinetree frame, I cut it out using Pine Branch Panel Die.


  For the card background I picked a light pink dotted pattern paper from Half-Half Dots - Botanical Paper Pad. To create a gold foiled sentiment I used a leftover foil I got after foiling with Subsentiments Christmas Foil Plate. To work with foil negatives\leftovers you will need a special foil plate as - Solid Foil Plate 5x6.


  This month we have two new scene builder panel dies! The first one is Winter Cityscape Die. It's a perfect die to create one layered scenes or dimensional card backgrounds with stamped images. 

  On my first example with this die I used distress inks to color the sky and other landscape pieces and I added snow here and there with my snow pen. I stamped a few images from Winter Fun  Stamp set and colored them with Copic markers. 


  For my second exemple I used a colored cardstock only without a double sided adhesive foam. I added some details with a white gel pen and yellow and grey Copic markers.


The second cover die is Winter Lake Die for building a natural landscapes on the card. It also works with Winter Fun Combo or any other small critter stamps. 


   You can mix and match the diecuts and add less or more details, like I did on the next card. I skipped the sky parts with snow and created the card background with the distress inks and I cut out more pine trees to create a real snow forest for my stamped snowpens from Winter Fun Stamp.


  I'm so excited to present two birth flower stamp sets. It's still warm here in Krakow so I'm happy to create more floral cards. 

  For this card I stamped twice the biggest flower from Narcissus - December Birth Flower and attached them on a white arch panel that I cut out with Nesting Portrait Arches Die. I heat embossed the sentiment from Hello Friend Sentiments.


  The second floral stamp is Snow Drop - January Birth Flower. Again, I used Nesting Portrait Arches Die to create a nice frame for the flowers. Can you see the embossed panel behind the flowers? I made it using a Swag foil plate without foil and a foiling machine :) You can dry emboss with  every one of our foil plates just look through the guid of your die cutting machine. 

  I decorated the card with a few clear enamel dots and heat embossed sentiment - Hello Friend Sentiments.


  For the second card I created more delicate flowers and put them inside of the pink frame, I cut it out with a die from Fancy Frames Die. 

  I hope you can see that my pink card panel has some texture? I was playing with a vellum and a new Winter Crystal Die. I decided to create a panel full of almost invisible winter crystals :)   .
 

  And here are a few cards using this Winter Crystal die and a regular cardstock :) You can create frames and shadows for your winter crystal using a two coordinating dies from this set. I placed my die cut on a Radiating Circle Frame Die cut. Using Tiny Dot Stencil and gold glitter paste I created a shiny card background.


I placed a gold foiled sentiment in the centre of the crystal


To create an extra dimension I cut out a few light pink crystals and stacked them together with a liquid glue. 


I absolutely love how the crystal looks when I cut it out with a white glitter cardstock! I placed the crystal on a kraft card panel I cut out using Dashed Snowflake Panel Die.


  Last but not least, a super cool combo from Nina - Winter Leaves Bundle. It consists of a foil plate, coordinating die, stencil and stamp set!


  For my first card example I used stamps, dies and stencil from Winter Leaves Bundle. I foam mount the leaves on the embossed white card panel.



For my second card I used a foil plate to create shiny gold veins on the leaves. And I colored the leaves with distress inks and a coordinating stencil.


Thanks so much for staying with me :)

Sunshine card

Hello everyone!

 
 I have a bright card to share with you! I made it using a new set of products from LDRS Creative: Hello Sunshine Stamp set, stencil and die. I love how all these products work together. You can even use only a stencil for creating beautiful flowers.

 
  That's what I did on this card. To create a card background I used only the Hello Sunshine stencil. I rotated the stencil to get a fun flower pattern. I used only 3 layers of the stencil set, I skipped leaves and small flowers.
  I cut out the card background using the second die from A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set.


  I filled the gaps between the flowers with small crystals and colorful dots I made with alcohol based markers. To add more interest to the flowers I used white gel pen and drew some highlights.
  
I used one of the stamps from Hello Sunshine Stamp Set to create a cute sentiment. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on black cardstock, and I cut it out with the coordinating die.


Thanks for stopping by!

Waffle Flower September release Blog Hop

 Hello everyone!

  Today is my birthday and release day at Waffle Flowercrafts! Excitement x2! :) I'm so happy to share with you a lot of cardmaking inspiration! And more to come on the Waffle Flower Instagram page! 

  I’m happy to be hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower to show you all the fun new stuff awaiting you on the Waffle Flower website! Be sure to check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies! 

Next on the hop is JJ Bolton


  For my first card I used a new layered flower die - Layered Abstract Flowers Die. I cut out a flower from a thick vellum and I applied a little bit of pink ink in the centre using a small shaker brush - Shader Brush Sampler Pack.

  To create a card background I used Swag Background Foil Plate as an embossing plate. I run the foil plate with a thin embossing silicone mat and a kraft paper through my die cutting machine. I think almost all die cutting machines can emboss, just look through the guid of your machine.

  Also I heat emboss the sentiment - Love Thanks Sentiments Combo with a white embossing powder.


This flower was designed to work with previously released Elegant Oval Frame Die and Slim shaker covers. 


  This month we have two new combos with foil plates! Perfect for creating amazing card backgrounds. The first one is Elongated Hex Foil Plate and it works with Elongated Hex Stencil Duo.
 
  I stamped small sentiments on cute die cut banners. I cut them out using a new Stacking Banners Die.


  The second foil plate is called - Swag Background Foil Plate and it works with Swag Coloring Stencil. For both of my cards I used super shiny foil from Spellbinders - Speckled Aura. It's one of the foils from my all time favorite foil set - Glimmer Foil Favorites Pack, that you can find at Waffle Flower website as well.

Using the same hot foil I created a big Christmas sentiemnt with Oversized Merry Christmas Foil Plate.


  And this month we have some New Year dies. The first one is Brush Lettered New Year Die. I created two similar cards with it, but on the first card I used a double sided adhesive sheet to attach the die cut, and on the card - double sided foam tape. 


This card I attached directly on a white card background and inlaid some small pieces back. 


And here is a card full of dimension and shine from a gold glitter cardstock. This die will work perfectly with our biggest Flat circle Shaker Covers. 


I used two shades of the red cardstock to create a monochromatic look.


Last but not least a birthday card with a hor foiled confetti - Confetti Foil Plate. You can color confetti with you favorite medium or with Confetti Stencil Duo.


For the sentiemnt I used another hot foil palte - Happy Birthday Duo Foil Plate. I colored all the letters with my Copic Markers.
