The Waffle Flower design team has been having lots of fun with this release and we’re excited to share our cards with you today! I have four cards here to share with you!

<Card 1>

As my backyard vegetable dying back, I smelled a little bit fall. It was great to play with this stamp because I have no resistance to anything cute and whimsical! To make this card, I messy watercolor my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed over a piece of A2 watercolor paper.

Then I stamped my selected images from Home Sweet Home stamp set using memento tuxedo black ink over 80lbs Neenah Solar white cardstock paper and die cut with the Matching die. I colored all images with copic markers which took me about 15 minutes. Yes it’s fun and quick. I adhered my images using liquid glue and foam tapes. I stamped my sentiment “Safe at Home” from Safe at Home sentiment Stamp set and added enamel dots from Enamel Dots-Enchanted to finish my first card.

<Card 2>

I continued to my fall scene. I used washi tapes to mask the edge of my A2 sized background. Then I ink blended the uncovered background using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade. I randomly splattered the water over the background to create some effect.

I die cut my leaf backgrounds and outlines using Fall leaves Die. I kept the outline white but ink blended the leaf background using several fall colors from Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Crushed Olive, Candied Apple, Aged Mahogany and Carved Pumpkin. I glue them together and placed them onto my prepped background using foam tapes. I stamped my sentiment “Thank you SWEET FRIEND” from Stitched Sentiment Stamp set and added enamel dots from Enamel Dots-Enchanted as embellishments.

<Card 3>

Raise your hand and foot if you are one of parents who are hanging there with distancing learning? I hope you had “great time” so far! LOL As a mom of a 14 years old, we had experienced multiple zoom malfunction and still are trying to figure how to make things work. Why not sending a card like this to cheer each other?!

I ink blended my background using Twisted Citron distress oxide ink onto an A2 sized card stock paper. Then I die cut the computer die cut from Monitor Die. I lightly blended the die cut to create some dimension then adhered it onto my background.

I stamped and copic colored my images from Pencil In Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. Then I arranged them over the background with liquid glue and foam tapes. At last, I stamped the sentiment “Sending Virtual Hugs”from Safe at Home sentiment Stamp set to the upper right corner to end this card.

<Card 4>

For my last card today, I die cut the house using House Outline die and inked with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink. I decided to choose the pattern paper from Half-Half Dots – Unicorn Paper Pad as my background to make it more fun. I stamped and copic colored those adorable kitty cats from Learning From Home Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. After I assembled everything onto the background, I finished the card by stamping my sentiment from Safe at Home sentiment Stamp set

Waffle Flower 2020 July Release Blog Hop

Waffle Flower’s Christmas in July Release is available today! Please note: Waffle Flower didn’t anticipate the popularity of this release and more stamps will be restocked around July 9th and dies around July 21st. Today I got four cards to show you.
In case you missed them, here are the links to the introjduction posts:
<Card 1>

 

Making Christmas card in July is such a delightful thing! To begin with,  I colored images from Poinsettia Stamp Set with copic markers and die cut with the Matching Dies. Then I prepared my background over a piece of A2 watercolor paper by smudge and splatter pink paint. At last, I attached my colored images with foam tapes and die cut the sentiment “merry” from the same set to place on the lower corner of this card to finish.

 

<Card 2>

Let’s shift to a cheerful holiday mood! I prepared my background by cutting my A2 background diagonally, then I ink blended the background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio. I colored my images from  Happy Gnomes Stamp Set and die cut with the Matching Dies. I stamped the sentiment “happy holidays” from Classic Holiday Sentiments Stamp set and added my images.

 

<Card 3>

Red and Green are our traditional Christmas colors, so I decided to simply combine them for this card. I started to ink blend my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather. Then I splattered white paints to create some interests.

I colored images from Fa-la-la Stamp set and die cut with the matching dies. I stamped the sentiment “Jingle All The Way” and attached the image with liquid glue. I die cut another A2 card stock with Nesting Hexagon Dies and only save the negative cut out to create my front card window. In the end, I added Enamel dots to embellish my card.

 

<Card 4>

For my last card, it is pretty simple but cute. I cut my front window using Nesting Hexagon Dies and I attached it over a piece of pattern paper from Half-Half Dots-Enchanted Paper Pad

I colored this big bird from Holly Bird Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. I stamped the sentiment “warm wishes” to finalize the card.

Waffle Flower 2020 June Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower 2020 May Release Blog Hop! We are finally in Summer time. My garden had significantly growth and our pool in the backyard has been calling our names everyday. I had great time crafting with these new products in my backyard while enjoying the summer breeze. I just can’t wait to share them with you!

<Card 1>

It’s been about 3 months since the pandemic started, I’ve been sending encouragements to friends and family to support them going through this tough time. I found this oversized die is especially useful! To make this card, I created my pattern with Nesting Stars Dies on an A2 card panel in white, then I attached it over a piece of pattern paper from Half and Half Dots-Enchanted Paper pad. I cut my card main focus- hugs using Oversized Hugs Die out of the pattern paper from JJ’s Rainbow Paper Pad. To build sturdy dimension, I also cut 3 more hugs die cuts and overlapped them on each other using liquid adhesive.

I white embossed the sentiment ” & KISSES” over black card stock paper and hand cut it to rectangle shape with a pair of scissors.. I attached the die cut and sentiment onto my background and added enamel dots from Up & Running Enamel dots to finish this card.

 

<Card 2>

I bet most of us love Mermaid because it’s beautiful and mestery. I created this card by starting to ink blending my background with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Black soot. Then I splattered water and white paint to create water effect. I selected a few images from Mermaid Mail Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. I copic colored them and attached them onto my background using foam tapes and glue. At last, I stamped the sentiment “Mermaid Hair Don’t Care” onto the lower left corner using versafine oynx black ink. I embellished my card with some Startdust Enamel dots.

 

<Card 3>

Just keep swimming! It reminds me of the movie – Finding Nemo. I really love this saying because I apply it to my real life very often. To start with, I created a random square watercolor block onto an A2 sized watercolor paper. I splattered some white paint to create bubble effect. I colored the images from Sea Birthday Stamp set and cut with the Matching Dies. I copic colored them and added them onto the background using foam tapes and glue. I stamped the sentiment to the upper portion to end this card.

 

<Card 4>

My last card was a quick make and great for mass producing. I die cut my front panel and other small elements using Under the Sea Panel Die out of a piece of white card stock paper. I prepared my background by ink blending with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean and I splattered some water on it. I copic colored the small die cuts and attached them with the main panel over the background. In  the end, I added sentiment from Under the Sea Sentiments Stamp set and enamel dots in Stardust.

Waffle Flower 2020 May Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower 2020 May Release Blog Hop! This month, we covered many special occasions along with a new set in the Bouquet Builder series! For today’s Blog Hop, I chose 6 cards to show you what I did with some of these products!

<Card 1>

I almost screamed when I saw this combo set because I can find myself using them so much. I am a dental hygienist who has been staying home away from work for almost 2 months now due to current pandemic. I would like to make some cards giving out to my patients and this is perfect!

To create this card. I die cut the large tooth shape out of Tooth Fairy Shapes Die. Then I added blue distress oxide ink around the edge before I attached it onto am A2 sized card base. I stamped and copic colored all images from Tooth Fairy Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. I arranged them onto my background with liquid adhesive and embellished it with different sizes of sparkling clear sequins.

 

<Card 2>

I know Mother’s day is less than a week away. As being a card maker, we always think ahead of holidays. I think it is time for us to prepare Father’s day card if you haven’t started. Masculine with a little bit cute critter could be great but not too serious.

I die cut our main character, Panda, for this card with Be a Panda Die. Then I also die cut a few chosen pieces from Be accessories Die to dress him up. I used copic color markers to color everything as I wanted. I attached them onto the background I created by using Papers from Half-Half Lines-Enchanted Paper pad. To add the sentiment, I simply used the “Happy Father’s Day” sentiment from Home Brew Stamp set.

 

<Card 3>

If your Dad like Beers or beverages, you got to have this combo set. I first created my simple background with papers from Half-Half Lines-Botanical Paper Pad. I die cut selected the pieces from Home Brew Die and pairing with Home Brew Stamp set. I inked my cut out pieces using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean. The sentiment that comes with this stamp set became handy again.

 

<Card 4>

Here comes one of my favorite series. Waffle Flower has been introducing a few stamp sets related to different countries and cultures in the past. Now we get more! Today we are feeling “Russian”!

I love coloring like a child. So I colored all images from From Russia with Love Stamp set using my copic markers then I die cut them using the Matching Dies. I cut out two different shapes of window out of Classic Frame Die and raised them up using foam tape for dimensions. I adhered all images onto the background and embellished with my all time favorite–  Up & Running Enamel dots .

 

<Card 5>

Hola! We are not forgetting Mexican culture this time either!

I created my frame using Picture Frame Die. I inked the edge of the frame and background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick. I added foam tape to create dimension of the frame. I easily copic colored all images from Hola Mexico Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. I stamped the sentiment and added all images to finish this card.

Waffle Flower also released a stamp featuring Germany Culture name Prost Germany. You could find it Here!

 

<Card 6>

My last card means a lot to me! My daughter is graduating from Middle school this year. Unfortunately, she became one of graduating students who were impacted by our current unique situation. I highly encourage you at least send out a card to them because they deserve it! I really hope they will somehow make up the graduation ceremony when time is right in the future.

To create this card. I cut out my front panel using Graduation Panel Die. Then I added foam stripes underneath and layer it on top of the rainbow color pattern paper from JJ’s Rainbow Paper Pad. I cut out two sizes of circles from Classic Frame Die and stamped the sentiment from Graduation Sentiments.To make my bottom circle outstanding, I simply added a slightly larger circle cut out using vellum paper.For my embellishments, I cut out a few matching graduation hats with Graduation Panel Die out of the same rainbow paper. Oh,  and a few clear drops to bring you more attention.

Waffle Flower 2020 Pattern Paper Release Blog Hop

Waffle Flower now offers pattern paper! These papers are designed by cardmakers, so expect to see some new and innovative approaches!
For example, Waffle Flower paper pads measure a generous 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches (half-page of US Letter size). They settled on this size to give cardmakers more paper and less waste! Simply fold each page in half to make a standard landscape A2 card. Or trim a page in half to make two A2-sized card fronts. This larger size can also be used for A7-sized cards (5″x7″). The beauty of our unique page sizing allows us to have half-half designs. For more details, visit their paper introduction page here.
For today’s Blog Hop, I have 6 cards using papers from 6 different paper pads from this release. Let us take a look.
<Card 1>

To begin with my first card, I created the background with frame using Ticket Frames Die out of a piece of paper from Half-Half Lines – Unicorn Paper Pad I attached the top frame onto the solid pink background using foam tape.

I stamped the images from Rejoice Rabbit stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. Then I colored it with copic markers. After I attached the image onto the background, I stamped the sentiment “Just for you” that comes from the same stamp set onto black cardstock and white embossed it. I hand cut it into a piece of skinny rectangle shaped paper and adhered it to the upper right corner of my card. At last, I added enamel dots from Stardust Enamel dots to finish the card.

<Card 2>

JJ’s Rainbows Paper Pad

Everyone loves rainbow.Right? I just cannot have enough with rainbow colors. I chose a piece of cardstock paper from JJ’s Rainbows Paper Pad Then I die cut all color stripes using Horizontal Stripes Die which makes the process goes very easily. I overlapped each stripes a little bit and attached onto an A2 sized card base. I chose Thank You Rainbow Die cut as my focal point of the card. To assemble the center piece, I used black, white and the rainbow stripes paper. And of course, I added my favorite color coordinating enamel dots from Up & Running Enamel dots.

<Card 3>

Modern – Neutrals Paper Pad

We are turning our focus onto a classic and elegant look now. I chose a piece of granite marble cardstock paper from Modern – Neutrals Paper Pad and cut it into rectangle shape that was slightly smaller than A2 sized card base. I created center inlay piece by using Nesting Squares Die. I cut out my focal sentiment using Oversized Thank You Die out of a piece of silver shimmer cardstock and also attached A2 sized silver card base to match the whole scene. It is just so simple and easy to mass produce piece for you to try.

<Card 4>

Half-Half Dots – Botanical Paper Pad

If you joined our last Waffle Flower Top 6 Favorite Blog Hop, you should know how much I love these froggies. I brought them into this blog hop as well LOL. To start with, I cut my upper frame using  Shutters Panel Die out of a piece of cardstock paper from Half-Half Dots – Botanical Paper Pad Then I hand cut the lines between the lines to modify the frame window as I desired. I attached the frame onto a background that I ink blended with Tim holtz distress oxide in Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean.

I copic color all images from Toadally Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. Then assembled them using liquid adhesive and foam tape onto my background. After I added the sentiment, I scattered some green enamel dots from Up & Running Enamel Dot.

<Card 5>

Half-Half Dots – Unicorn Paper Pad

A perfect wedding or anniversary card here for you! I die cut my frame using Cake Panel Die out of a piece of cardstock paper from Half-Half Dots – Unicorn Paper Pad and I attached it onto the solid dotted paper from the same paper pad. I copic colored my selected images from Love You Bunnies Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies.  I chose to die cut “always & forever” sentiment from Cake Panel Die and inked with copic markers in two shades of pink. I quickly assembled all the pieces to finish this card.

<Card 6>

Special Delivery Paper Pad

My last card only took me about 10 minutes from start to finish. I used Special Delivery Paper Pad to achieve this look. In my opinion, it is great paper pad for cardmaking starter, scrapbooker or someone who wants to create a dozen of cards in reasonable time frame. I cut out my top layer of card focal image with help of Nesting Postages Die. Then I layered it onto two more layers of rectangle shaped pattern paper. To create dimensions, I added foam tapes to each layer. In the end, I added some enamel dots from Stardust Enamel Dots to make this card a little more special.

Waffle Flower x Tombow Inspiration Week

Hello Everyone,

Waffle Flower Crafts teamed up with our friend Tombow to bring a whole week of Inspirations using products from both companies. For my today’s project, I included Waffle Flower Bouquet Builder 6 Stamp and dies, Waffle Flower Mini Media Mat, Waffle Flower Wave Texture Die, Oversized Hello Die,Tombow Dual Brush pens and Tombow TwinTone Dual-tip Markers.

To create my project, I picked one of floral image from Waffle Flower Bouquet Builder 6 Stamp set and stamped it onto a piece of Bristol Smooth paper with Tim Holtz Anitique Linen Distress ink. Then I picked out four main colors to color this image which are Tombow Dual Brush pens in #403,817,277 and 025.  I die cut this image with the matching dies.

During my coloring process, I colored my image by first directly coloring on small portion and then spreading the color with a thin paint brush. To even out my color transition, I scrabbled the color onto the Waffle Flower Mini Media Mat and then transferred onto the image.

 

 

Once I was done with coloring. I die cut my background using Waffle Flower Wave Texture Die out of a piece of white card stock paper. I also die cut the Large hello using Waffle Flower Oversized hello Die out of a piece of Gold shimmer card stock paper. I assembled colored image and word die cut onto my background.

At last, I chose a color that was close to my gold shimmer hello from Tombow TwinTone Dual-tip markers and added dots to bind my all elements together.

There will be a giveaway for you to enter on Instagram on Friday for 2 winners to each receive a prize package totaling $150! More details to come! To stay ahead of the game, follow us at @waffleflowercrafts and Tombow at @tombowusa NOW! Good Luck!!!

Waffle Flower 2020 March Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower March 2020 Release Blog Hop! This is a lovely season. I have been working hard in my backyard such as pulling weeds (always no fun but headache) , planting vegetable seedlings. I am just so happy to see all trees are growing buds and new branches. Now I am here introducing a bunch of fun springing products to you and I know you would love them!

<Card 1>

For my first card, I decided to keep simple color tones for the baby scene. I chose pink and light teal blue for my color combo. I prepped my background by ink blending with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick, then I splattered the same color over the background. I stamped the images from Little One Baby Stamp Set in Memento ink in Rich Cocoa onto Neenah solar white 80lbs cardstock. I die cut them using Little One Baby Matching dies and colored with copic markers. I arranged them onto the background using liquid adhesive and foam tapes. I also added different sizes of sequins as embellishments to finish.

<Card 2>

Anyone grows tulips in the garden? I have a small area that contributes to these lovely flowers every spring. To me, they please you so much with you putting so little effort. If you haven’t try them, it’s not too late to try them. For this card, I cut a smaller sized rectangle by using  Stand-alone – Additional A2 Layers Die and layered it over an A2 sized card panel. Then I lightly ink blended it with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Seedless Preserves. I stamped the image from Tulips Stamp set and die cut with the matching dies. I enjoyed coloring this fairly large image with copic markers. I splattered the same paint over the background and added sentiment “Grandmother you are loved”.

<Card 3>

Now let’s give our card some rainbow colors. To make this card, I die cut Oversized Hello Die out a piece of white card stock 5 times. First I glued 3 of them onto an A2 sized card panel. Then stacked the rest of 2 to create a thicker “hello” die cut. I splattered gold paint over the background, copic colored my focal point and adhered it to the center of my card. A little trick, pick 3 colors in the same color family and blend them together until to the ombre colors that you desired. You can make your own copic color wheel by using this Waffle Flower Amazing Products.

<Card 4>

Here comes my last card. To be honest, I was a little disappointed with the result of the photos, because it just did not show the textures I want to get you to see. To start with this card, I first heavily ink blended my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in  Peacock Feather and Lucky Clover. Then I layered a piece of rectangle shaped vellum paper to tone the color down a little. Then I die cut whole bunch of foliage pieces out of white card stock by using Sprigs Die. I adhered them on the the background and splattered gold paint over. To match the gold paint, I stamped my sentiment and gold embossed it onto vellum paper. At last, I added my all time favorite embellishment-Enamel Dots in Stardust to finished my card.

Waffle Flower 2020 February Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower February 2020 Release Blog Hop! It’s been a little cold outside. I hope everyone stays warm and be healthy from any yucky bugs! Here you will see a sweet and cozy collections to warm your heart!

<Card 1>

For my first card, I wanted to create a shaker card. I ink blended lightly on my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in worn lipstick and picked raspberry, then I stamped and white embossed the sentiment “Love you my friend” from Jars of Sentiments Stamp set. I cut the white frame by overlapping couple of dies from A2 Layered Die. I attached a piece of acetate paper underneath my white frame, poured my shaker elements and closed it up with foam tapes.

I cut 3 different sized of bows by using Easy 3 D Bows Die which is a re-release of our 3D bow dies out of plaid pattern paper, then I assembled them easily with a little bit glue. I attached them onto my shaker window to finish my first project

<Card 2>

Raise your hand if you love kitty cats! I was so happy to see Big bear and bird’s illustrations becoming craft cutting dies for us to play with. I created my background by ink blending Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in tattered rose and Worn Lipstick. Then I stamped the sentiment “Wishing you the Happiest of Days” in black and white embossed flower stamps from Jars of Sentiment Stamp set.

I die cut the kitty cat by using Be a Cat Die and colored it with copic markers. I also made the color matching bow using Easy 3 D Bows Die . At last, I attached my cutest kitty onto the background.

<Card 3>

Lily is one of my favorite flowers! Waffle Flower has this fairly large die which could take over the whole A2 panel with no stress. To make this card, I simply stamped the image from Potted Lily Stamp set and cut with the Matching Die. Then I colored it with copic markers. I added patterns onto the blue pot using white gel pen and I also splattered white paint over the flowers to create textures.

I created my background by ink blended the background using Tumbled Glass Distress oxide ink and splattered the matching ink and water mixer over. Once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment “Happy Easter” from the same stamp set and attached colored images.

<Card 4>

Spring is coming soon, I just cannot wait to start my backyard garden and see all birdies and butterflies stopping by. This is a simple card but bring you not so simple vibe. I guess I somehow was into pattern paper lately so I decided to have green plaid pattern paper as my base. Then I cute  a piece of rectangle white card stock that was about half inch smaller than my base. I rounded all four corner using my corner chopper and stamped my sentiment which was from Jars of Sentiments Stamp set.  I did splattered some blue ink over the background for a fun look.

I stamped the selected images from Jars of Happiness Stamp set and cut with the Matching dies. I colored them with copic markers and arranged onto my background to end my last card.

Waffle Flower 2020 January Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower January 2020 Release Blog Hop! I hope you all had  wonderful holidays!!! For the first month of 2020, we are bringing you a set of creative products!

<Card 1>

For my first card,  I wanted to create a set of rainbow colors. I smudged Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink pads in different colors over 8 paper strips and set aside for later use. Then I cut my front panel using Sweet Scallops Panel Die out of a piece of white card stock paper. I arranged my rainbow strips over a piece of A2 sized card base and attached front panel using foam tape to create dimensions.

I stamped the sentiment “it will get better”from Fresh Rainbow Sentiments Stamp Set using memento tuxedo black ink onto the center of my panel and embellished the center with  Up&Running Enamel dots and sparkling clear sequins. At last, I attached tons of clear seed beads to create some interests in between lines.

   <Card 2>

I just cannot have enough of creative dies in this release. I ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Worn lipstick. Then I die cut them using Hearts Panel Die.  I save all negative cut outs in heart shape to be the embellishments for another card later. I poured seed beads in all kinds of colors, added acetate paper underneath of front panel and sealed them with foam tapes.

After I was done with my shaker card background, I die cut “Thank you” word using Oversized Love Word Die for 3 times out of white card stock paper. I glued them together to create thicker dimension. I easily attached this oversized word over the background to finish this card.

  <Card 3>

I really enjoyed the process of making this card. I first ink blended the background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Cracked Pistachio over an A2 watercolor paper. Then I die cut my front panel using Fresh Rainbow Panel Die out of white card stock paper and attached to the background using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment “positive vibes coming your way” with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto the center of the panel, and decorate the rainbow shapes using  Up&Running Enamel dots

<Card 4>

Here comes my last card. I first made the pastel watercolor background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide inks, then I attached a thin strips in gold color to top and bottom of this background. Once the background was dry, I stamped “love you” in black using Oversized Love Stamp Set. Then I die cut the matching “love you” cut out from Oversized Love Word Die and ink blended it to ombre colors that matches the watercolor background. I adhered this cut out over the stamp on the background and purposely off set it a little to create faux dimension. I grabbed the heart die cuts from making my second card and embellished the background by attaching them with foam tapes.
