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 :)
