Waffle Flower August Release Blog hop

 Hello everyone!

  Welcome to the Waffle Flower August 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 JJ Bolton!

  This month we have a lot of products for book lovers :) Let me know in the comments your favorite book! Mine is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. 

  My first card I made using Book Cover Die and I turned it into a shaker card. This new die works perfectly with Nesting Stitched Rectangles Dies. I used the biggest die to cut out the gold frame for the Book Cover die cut. 


  Another new book is 
Layered Books Die. I designed it to create small cute books that can be used for creating card backgrounds or a focal point for the clean and simple cards. 

  To create this card I cut out a card panel using the biggest die from new 
Fancy Frames Die annd a akraft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment and arranged the books around it. 


JJ designed a perfect sentient stamp set called 
Story Sentiments Stamp Set. I used it with almost all my cards, it's so versitate! 


If you like creating little scenes on the cards you will love 
Shelves Additions Die. It works with 
Shelves Die but I decided to create an encouraging card without shelves. 


Now let's take a look at classic books :) The 
Classic Books Die set can be used vertically or horizontally on the card.
   

  For this card I created the ink blended card background using
 Brick Wall Stencil, distress inks and new 
Mini Inkpad Slim Holder. I decorated books with
  to create a more realistic look and I placed a small red cup from  . Isn't it cute?



  
   Here is an example for a vertical look card. I embellish books with gold glitter paper and clear drops. 


 Now let's move to the practical side of our release :) We have two bookmarks die sets that can be used as decorations on the cards or as a tags.


  Dotted Bookmarks Die has a little die for creating the bookmark flap, without it you can use the die as a tag or small panel. I decorated my bookmarks with Story Sentiments Stamp Set and a cute cat from 


Using 
Ornate Bookmark Die I made a simple delicate card with oversized sentinment - Oversized Miss Combo.


Also, I made an alternative bookmark using Tea Cup Die :) I simply attached a twine and little tag to the tea cup die cut. 





  I own too many pretty cups and I almost run out of space for them, but I don't regret ) One die you will find me under the books and tons of cups )) 
  My next card is for such a crazy mug lady:) I hot foil the card panel using new 
Vintage Vine Foil Plate and Opal color foil. 


  At last but not least! I want to mention 
Star Snowflake Christmas Bundle. It's an exclusive kit designed by JJ Bolton for creating the most amazing winter cards! The bundle consists of dies, stamps and stencils. During the month I'll share more inspiration with it!
 


On this card I combined ink blending with a gold glitter paste from Nuvo. 


Thanks for staying with me until the end :) I hope you found a lot of inspiration! 

Next on the hop is JJ Bolton!

Waffle Flower July Releasae Blog Hop

 Hello everyone! 

Welcome to the Waffle Flower July 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!
  YOUR NEXT STOP - Laura Bassen


  Christmas in July is one of my favorite events! Usually I have no rush to prepare and send the cards in December just because I made them all in July :)

  And I prepared a lot of cards to show you today, I was so inspired with our new release so I couldn't stop! More inspiration I'll share on My and Waffle Flower Instagram accounts.

  I want to start with a new Ornaments series. I made my first card with Layered Ornament Die and different cardstock sheets, for smaller pieces I used my scraps:) I applied gold glitter paste through Snowy Pine Trees Stencil on a grey A2 panel and then foam mounted the ornaments. 


 
 For my second card I used the same stencil and die set but in different colors. Kraft cardstock is one of my favorite papers for Christmas cards. 


Nest we have another ornament Combo: Ornaments Background Foil Plate and Ornaments Coloring Stencil. That stencil set can be used separately, find below the example :)


  Gold ornament lines look fantastic! I cut out a matching sentiments from a gold mirror cardstock using new amazing sentiment dies from JJ Bolton called Oversized Merry Christmas Print. I heat embossed the second part of the sentiment using Merry Christmas Duo Stamp set. 


  I love that with a coordinating coloring stencil I can change not only ornament color but a background too! For all my cards I used water based regular Distress inks and Blending Brushes. 


On this card I framed the heat embossed sentiment using a small foil plate die from - A2 Layers Foil Plate.


Next I dried to use small Shader brushes to create shadows on the ornaments. This time I used silver foil for the ornaments outlines. To create a sentiment I used Merry Christmas Duo Foil Plate.


And here is an example without foiling. Stamp and stencil only :) 



  Another new foil panel we have is Scattered Stars Foil Plate and I made a night sky scene using it. I applied different distress inks over the foiled panel. 

 Blending brushes help to remove small overfoiling on the paper :) 

I cut out a few small ornaments using Small Ornaments Die and placed them on a pine branch from Layered Winter Bird Die. Find the card with a new bird below :) 

 
 And here are those cute stars made with silver foil. I created a winter card using foils only, how fun is that? We have pre foiled die cut sentiments in 3 colors: silver, gold and black!

  I decorated a tree made with Outlined Pine Tree Foil Plate using a few small Enamel Dots. 


  If you don't have a foiling machine you will definitely love those stars in a die version - Scattered Stars Die! It's a half panel die so you can cut out a full background and borders too! 

For this card I used new flowers stamp set - Peony - September Birth Flower.



  The second new floral stamp set is Poppy - August Birth Flower, which one I also framed with a gold foil using A2 Layers Foil Plate.



But lets go back to our winter cards :) I can't wait to show you more cards using this sweet layered bird die - Layered Winter Bird Die. 


I cut out a pine tree frame using Pine Branch Panel Die and foam mount it on the ink blended card panel.


In this set 
Pine Branch Panel Die you will find a few small additions. I used a little berries to decorate my double pine branch frame :) 


  Also I made a card using pine branches only (without a bird) :) I cut them out wfom a white glitter cardstock and decorated them with enamel dots.  I cut out a green card panel using a Dashed Snowflake Panel Die with beautiful embossed snowflakes. 


Clean and simple card but I love the dimension of the white forest:)! 


Last, but not least a card with a new Two layered stencil with beautiful poinsettias - 
Layered Poinsettia Stencil Duo. I used red distress ink and gold glitter paste to create this card background. 


 I made a sentiment using Merry Christmas Duo Foil Plate and I colored it with an alcohol base Copic markers.




So shiny! Perfect for the  Christmas season!



Thanks for staying with me :)
