Welcome to Waffle Flower August 2019 Release Blog Hop! This release focuses on using stamps & dies to organize your ink and paper supplies and document your favorite color combos. And of course you will also get to see more of floral and cutesy images.
First of all, we got Bouquet Builder 5 with another gorgeous bouquet from Karla Jodoin this month. To start with my card, I colored the images with copic markers from Bouquet Builder 5 Stamp set and cut with the Matching dies.
To prepare my background, I grabbed the Big Dots Die and ran it through my cutting machine with adding a rubber mat in between to make impression of the patterns instead of cutting through the paper.
I attached the colored images to my background, and heat embossed my sentiment “Happy Anniversary” from Iris You Stamp set with white embossing powder over black card stock paper. I added the sentiment onto the background with some sparkling clear sequins surrounding my bouquet.
Now this Make Wave stamp below with a cute mermaid mouse from Liz Mytinge is a gem! It is a 2×3 sized stamp set. It has really low price point but still enough to create your scene easily.
To make this card, I first ink blended onto a piece of watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Wilted Violet. I splattered some water droplets to create cool effect to mimic the bubbles. Then I cute the white frame part using Cloudscape Panel Die and partially removed clouds portion. I laid the frame over my inked background using foam tape.
I colored images from Make Wave Stamp set with copic markers and hand fussy cut them. I attached them onto my background and stamped the sentiment. I finished my card by adding some sparkling clear sequins.
JJ Bolton always designs fun dies. She designed this Big Dot Die this month for a bold and graphic look.
For those two cards I made were simple and quick. They are perfect to make for a few within short amount of time as friendly gifts.
I first ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean. Then I cut it with Big Dots Die. I separate the die cuts into to parts. I attached the positive part over the white woodgrain cardstock paper and stamped the sentiment “THANKS” from Big Dots Sentiment Stamp set. Then I attached the negative part of die cuts onto another piece of white woodgrain cardstock paper. I white embossed the sentiment “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” also from Big Dots Sentiment Stamp set onto black cardstock paper and cut to rectangle shape to fit into the center part.
I nearly use Tim Holtz Distress inks for all my handmade cards. So it is so thankful that Waffle Flower came up with lots of color swatches stamps and dies. I made 3 tags of my favorite ink blending color combo to start my color swatching journey.
I first die cut my tag using Color Combos Tag Die out of white card stock papers. Then I blended all my selected colors onto another piece of card stock paper and die cut to the shapes I desired with Color Combo Die. I attached them into the tags and marked the name of colors.
