Welcome to Waffle Flower October 2019 Release Blog Hop! I hope you are ready to check out variety of stamps and dies this month. You get to play with a little bit everything. I am sharing 5 cards that I made with this month’s product. I am curious which one is your favorite.
I started with this fall card with images are illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux. To make this card. I stamped the images from Fall Greeting stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. Then I colored them with Copic markers and set aside.
I ink blended Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Fossilized Amber onto an A2 sized watercolor paper and splattered ink droplets over. I cut 2 pieces 1.25 inches wide strips out of white card stock paper and attached them onto the background using Foam tapes to create dimension. I added selected colored images and embellished my card with color coordinating enamel dots from Up&Running Enamel Dots.
We are staying with Fall season with my second card. I really like this set called Happy Fall. You get to have tons of accessory images to build your own scene. What I like the most is that you could easily stretch this stamp to a Happy Winter stamp with the main characters. I prepped my background with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Fossilized Amber using ink blending and droplet techniques. Then I grabbed a piece of A2 sized craft color card stock paper and cut the upper center using one of Nesting Squares Dies. I attached this window cut out front panel over inked background with foam tapes and brushed a little Fossilized Amber oxide ink around the edges.
I colored images from Happy Fall Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. Then I arranged them to my prepped background and stamped the sentiment “Give Thanks”. Isn’t it easy?!
You’ve seen a few stamps from different countries. Now it’s time for China. Not sure if you all know that I was raised and grown up in China until 20 years old. Making this brought me into the memory of being a child watching dragon dances and receiving red packet(elders usually give money to us as tradition which is my favorite part of new year haha) To begin with this card, I ink blended the background with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade and Worn lipstick. Then i cut my large rectangle window using Nesting Rectangles Dies and attached to the background with Foam tapes.
I copic colored my images from Ni Hao Stamp Set mainly in yellow and red which are two traditional Chinese color combo and die cut them with the Matching Dies. I arranged colored images to the background and added yellow enamels from Up&Running Enamel Dots as embellishments. At last, I stamped the sentiment “Happy New Year” in English and Chinese characters.
If you think my last three cards are easy, then you would be surprised with this fun card. It took me about 20 minutes. First of all, I ink smudged with Mustard Seed Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink and water mixture onto a piece of A sized watercolor paper. Once it’s dry, I stamped this super large stamp from Happy Thanksgiving Stamp set using VersaMark embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powders. A stamping trick:You could prep a large background stamp by rubbing eraser over it prior to your first use. You’ll find out the coverage is amazing.
To bring the interests, I splattered the color mixture and gold watercolor paint over the background by tapping a paint brush. Da ta, it’s done!
Now it’s large die cut sentiment’s turn. I am going for an elegant look. I inked my A2 sized watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tea Dye and Wilted Violet. Then I created the background impression using Lattice Panel die ran through my die cut machine with a rubber embossing mat. I die cut the Large Thank you sentiment using Oversized Thank you Die out of my purple card stock paper scrap. I attached it using foam tapes and embellished my card with white and purple enamel dots from Up&Running Enamel Dots.

Alix, I have to say one card is better than the other both in technique that you’ve shared and the distress ink blending. But I love the second autumn themed card, how beautifully have you created the scene in which the little mouse is offering the apple to buy the hay. I love the innocent look on the mouse’s face. And my next favorite is the card from the latest collection Chinese New Year card. Looooove them ❤️
Wow! All your cards are fabulous! I especially like the one made with the NiHao set (I have Chinese background too)!
Cute Fall cards and I like the colors on your other cards.
