Lucky Postage Collage Card Distress ink Combo

 Hello everyone! 

For a popular demand let me share my favorite color combo for the  Postage Collage Lucky Stencil Trio.

I cut out the Postage Collage panel from a white cardstock and I apllied Distress Ink: Tumbled Glass ink throuth the Postage Collage Coloring Stencil. I applied the blue ink with a light hand to create a soft background, ensuring that other ink colors would stay bright with minimal color mixing (we all know what happens when blue and yellow mix – hello, green!)

For this card I used Distress inks and VersaFine Black ink for stamping details. 

Other supplies: JJ's Rainbows Paper Pad (card background), White gel pen, White texture paste for Clouds.

Waffle Flower February release

 Hello everyone! Let's celebrate our new Lucky release at Waffle Flower Crafts! This month we have a new addition to my Postage Collage Colection - new stencils for A2 die plus more fun products! 



I created a couple of cards using the Postage Collage Lucky Stencil Trio in different colors. I combined the stenciled images with the matching Postage Collage Lucky Stamp Set and a big bold sentiment die - Oversized Lucky Print Die.



The new Postage Collage Lucky Stencil Trio pairs perfectly with the rainbow pattern paper from JJ's Rainbow Paper Pad.

Another delightful addition to our February release is the Shamrock Guy die, making it a perfect choice for adding charm to your lucky-themed cards! 

For my next card I placed the Shamrock Guy  die cut over the die cut panel, I cut it out using Sparkles Panel Die. I decorated  the card with a few die-cut Clover leaves, enhancing them with a touch of dark green ink for added depth and vibrancy.


Also I used a round stamp from Postage Collage Lucky Stamp Set to create a big lucky coins :) 


Next I want to show you a few cards with a Pop-up Clover Panel Die and matching stencil Clover Background Stencil


Of Course you can use the Clover Background Stencil  separately to create one layer card backgrounds. 




I absolutely love how you can choose to keep the background flat or pop up the leaves with Pop-up Panel dies, adding that extra touch of dimension to your card. So much fun to play around with. 



Another fantastic feature of the Pop-up Clover Panel Die is the hidden four-leaf clover amidst the regular clover leaves in the pattern. It brings an extra dash of luck to the design :), and you can even make it a focal point by coloring it differently from the other leaves. How fun is that?




Thanks for stopping by!

Waffle Flower January release

Hello everyone!

This month we have new additions to the Postage Collage Collection as well as more fun dies! I prepared a lot of cute cards to share with you and, ofcourse, GIVEAWAY! See the details below.

So, we have added such new sizes to the Postage Collage Collection + Color Block stencils: A6, A7, Mini Slimline, Slimline. Please note all sizes are US sizes. More information about card sizing you can find in this video - Popular Cardmaking Sizes & Nesting Dies by Waffle Flower

Here is the biggest Postage Collage die we have - A7 size. It works with bigger images and die cuts, like Paws UP Die. For this card I used a class Postage Collage Stamp and Purrfect Sentiments Stamp set (in the left). To color the Postage collage A7 die cut I used matching Postage Collage A7 Blocks Stencil.


Next one is Postage Collage A6 Die. I used Postage Collage A6 Blocks Stencil to create a vibrant background for my cat and books die cuts. 


Here are A6 and A7 Postage collage die cuts to compare the size. 


I love how juicy this card looks with help og clear embossing powder. 


Now we have a Postage die for my favorite card format - Slimline. I adore the slimline cards and how differently they look. 

And ofcourse here is a Mini Slimline card! I made a winter night scene on it using Distress Inks and Winter View Stamp Set.


Another fun die set in this release is The View Die. I made a couple of cute winter scene cards with it. Also I used the Winter View Stamp Set and Winter View Elements Die for my first card.


For this card I used Snowboard Die-n-stencil to finish the winter scene.


How cute are those tiny deers? 


If you have snowbords you need to use a gondola to have fun on the mountain :) For my next cards I used a new Gondola Die with some regular red and gold mirror cardstock.



I hope you get inspired and will create more winter cars this season! :)

Waffle Flower December Release + Giveaway

Hello everyone! 

December release is here! And it's all about love to your second half, family and friends :) 

Giveaway! I'm givingaway 20$ for Waffle Flower Shop to one random person who leaves a comment down below. - Closed - 

---The Giveaway winner is - I Card Everyone - Michele. Congrats! ---


I absolutely love dies that cut out all kinds of miniatures, just like this gift box die - 
Flower Gift Box Die
. How adorable are those tiny gift cards? Making this card brought me pure die-cutting happiness! The intricate details and precision of the die make crafting such a joy. It's incredible how a small tool can bring so much creativity to life.



Another "miniature" die we have is 
Love Potion Die-n-stencil
How fun is to create your own magic bottle using dies and stencils to put a smile on your friend's face? True friendship is pure magic, and with the new die and stencil, making such a bottle is both easy and fun! The die and stencil allowed me to add enchanting details that truly make the bottle look realistic!


Using 
Love Potion Stamp Set
 I made some fun tags to go with the bottle like wroted ingridients.



Talking about fun matching sentiements. The scripty sentiments die cuts always bring elegance to the cards. I used mirrored cardstock with 
Script Love Word Die
 to add a shiny detail, enhancing the overall appeal of the card. It's these little details that make the process of creating cards so enjoyable and rewarding.

For the card background I used 
Lovely Rose Stencil Duo
 and Distress inks (yellow and brown).


This script word we have in a foil plate version too - 
Script Love Foil Plate



For my next card I combined the two giant roses with the paper die cut sentiment




I'm so exited to show the new addition to my Postage Collage collection - 
Postage Collage Rose Stencil
 and 
Postage Collage Love Stamp Set
.


This stencil works with the Postage Collage Die and coloring stencils - Postage Collage Coloring Stencil.


Also you can use it with the beautiful sentiements from - 
Elegant Love Combo


And these roses I made using violet glitter paste from Nuvo because stencils can be used with a lot of mixed media mediums, so why not?

Waffle Flower November Release Blog Hop

 Hello everyone!

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 Cathy Zielske.



This month, we have the most cozy and adorable collection. Grab your favorite book, a cozy blanket, and your cat, and enjoy a peaceful, rainy November safely. :) 📚🐾

Let's begin with the card featuring my dream cabinet! 📚✨ I've designed this delightful Simple Bookcase Die, complete with a small interactive element. You can open the top right door and place a hidden message on the shelf.


We have new die set to mix with the previously reliesed Shelves Additions Die called Shelf Add-ons Die. I used some ot those dies to decorate the shelves. 


Simple Bookcase Die is quite large die that allows you to make a shaped card by trimming a standard card base. For a fantastic finish, consider using woodgrain cardstock. The textured look adds an extra layer of charm to your card.


For this card I also used Cat-a-log Combo, to cut out a bunch of small books and I stamped funny cat-related titles on them.


We also have another bookshelf, this time with a more modern style - Three-Tiered Shelf Die. To achieve a dimensional 3D effect, go ahead and add shading to the shelves. I personally used Vintage Photo Distress ink and the new small Shader brushes 2+ for this technique.



I adore dimensional cards with a pop-up effect! And using Inside Pop-up Shelves Die I can create a realistic cute and cozy scene inside of the card.  




And let's not forget the fun and utterly purr-fect stamp sentiments Pet Thoughts Stamp Set (Pet Thoughts Matching Die) and Purrfect Sentiments Stamp Set (Purrfect Sentiments Matching Die)! I can hardly contain the cuteness when I'm stamping those adorable cat 'thoughts' in little bubbles." 🐾😸


For all the toe-bean lovers we have a fun Paws Up Die that can be used for cards and for making the most adorable bookmarks. 

Can you guess what's inside of this gift box from the cat? I'm sure there is a piece of my favorite plant.


Bookmarks look super fun! 




Last but not least - 2 in 1 combo! The bookshelf die with no no-waste stencils :) You can cut out Simple Shelves Die from different cardstock, use the frame to decorate the card with cats and books and all inner die cuts you can turn into big oversized books with the Simple Books Stencil. How fun is that?





Next on the hop is Cathy Zielske.

Giveaways:

For today’s hop, we are giving away $25 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! You can leave a comment on this blog and along the hop by 11:59pm EST on Saturday November 11th, 2023 for your chances to win. Winners will be chosen at random from the comments and will be announced on the Waffle Flower Blog on Winner Monday 11/13/2023.
