Waffle Flower New Release blog hop

 Hello everyone! 

We have our first release this year at Waffle Flower Crafts! Yay! I designed a lot of new fun dies for making elegant cards and of course we have a ton of inspiration from our guests and design team.  

    For my first card I used a new amazing Peony Stamps set, and new Elegant Envelope die. I colored the flower with alcohol markers, you can use a Coordinating Peony Stencil to color it with ink. I diecut the envelope from a colored cardstock and put the flower inside. I heat embossed the sentiment using Happy Anniversary Duo Stamp Set. For the card background I used a pattern paper from Half-Half Dots - Caprice Paper Pad

For the second card I used only flap dies from Elegant Envelope die set. I stamp a flower and a few leaves from Violet and Primrose - February Birth Flower and colored them with alcohol based markers. I cut out a white card panel using Deckled Frames Die. 

  On my next card I combined the Elegant Envelope die with a cute Wax Seal die to create a realistic seal on the small envelope. I cut out a seal from a red cardstock and covered the top layer with clear embossing powder. Also you can use a clear 3d medium like Glossy Accent from Ranger to create a shinny 3d top layer as on the real wax.

Below you can find my example of using the Glossy Accent on the Wax Seal die cut. 

On this card I cut out a wax seal to hold a small bouquet on the thank you card. I stamped the sentiment using the Elegant Sentiments stamp set.

And I went a bit crazy and created a card background with colorful wax seals :) I  embellished the card with the enamel dots in matching colors.

The wax seal die set includes some cute additions like small bee, tiny heart and others. After I finished the previous card I got some colorful leftover pieces and I decided to make another card with them! Just look how pretty negative die cuts are! 

Next I want to share a few cards using Elegant Frames Die set. I made two shakers and one regular card with this die set. 

For this card I used a negative die cut with a silhouette to create a shaker full of small shiny crystals. 

The frame die from the Elegant Frames Die set works with previously released Shaker Puffy die and plastick Puffy Circle Shaker covers. So. I used one of the plastic covers to create a bright birthday shaker card. 

For those 3 cards I combined Elegant Frames Die set with Violet and Primrose - February Birth Flower.

And here is the example with  Glossy Accent on the Wax Seal Die cut. 

I heat embossed a small sentiment inside of it using a stamp from Special Delivery Sentiments.

  To create a big envelope (it can be turned to a real one) I used a pattern paper from Christmas Stripes Paper Pad and a rectangle nesting die. I cut out a flap using Elegant Envelope die set with white and red glitter cardstock. 

Next on the hop is Laura Bassen!

  30. I got married to my lovely husband for the past 12 years without conceiving and fibroid was the issue I took different prescribed medication but could not cure it but my husband was so confident in me and kept encouraging me that one day someone would call me mother we did not rest searching for solution from different doctors all they could see was surgery and I was afraid of that, a friend in my office introduced me to doctor DAWN ACUNA, she said dawn acuna helped her when she had blocked tube and she also helped so many of her friends to conceive,
    I wrote to her on Whatsapp immediately, she promised to help me after I explained everything to her, she gave me some instructions which I did everything perfectly as instructed, 3 week's after everything I went to the hospital and doctor confirmed me 1 week pregnant but right now I have my beautiful baby.
    *If you want to treat infertility.
    *If you want to quickly conceive.
    *If you want to return your lover.
    *If you want peaceful marriage.
    And many others contact Dr dawn acuna on Whatsapp:+2348032246310
