Waffle Flower 2020 November Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower’s November 2020 Release day! Today Waffle Flower is rolling out their new release that includes 3 stamp sets, 1 stamp-n-stencil combo, and 14 stencils! All of the products from this month’s release are already waiting for you on the website here
This month’s Waffle Flower release is all about creativity boosters! For many of us, time in the craftroom is all about clearing the mind and recharging! With that goal in mind, Waffle Flower packed this release full of stencils and silhouettes designed to feed your imagination! So, take a mini-break from your holiday crafting and take a look at these new goodies! 
This month marks the first stencil release for Waffle Flower! For the artsy types, there’s the Ink Spots Stencil (stencilbundle), Paint Strokes Stencil (stencilbundle), and Inky Stripes Stencil (stencilbundle). 
If you’re more a fan of clean and geometric backgrounds, there are 3 builder stencils from cardmaker JJ Bolton: Stripes Builder Stencil (stencilbundle), Infinite Petals Stencil (stencilbundle), and Infinite Rings Builder Stencil duo (stencilbundle). For the lovers of cute and whimsical, there’s Keeway’s Grass Scene Stencil (stencilbundle), Mountain Scene Stencil (stencilbundle), and Sky Scene Stencil (stencilbundle) designed by beloved DT member and cardmaker extraordinaire Keeway Tsao. Just in time for the holidays, there are the Merry Bow Stencil (stencil) and Pine Trees (stencil). Last but not least, everyone could use the new Spotlight stencils series that includes the Spotlight Circle Stencil (stencilbundle), Spotlight Square Stencil (stencilbundle), and Spotlight Star Stencil (stencilbundle). This is just the start of the stencils line for Waffle Flower! You’ll definitely be seeing lots more stencils in future monthly releases!  
On the stamp side, the November release stamps sets all have something in common, beautiful and creative silhouettes! These silhouette sets include the classic Herb Silhouettes Stamp Set (stamp), festive Spotlight Holiday Elements Stamp Set (stamp), and unique Power Lines Stamp Set (stamp) by cardmaker JJ Bolton. 
Last on the release list this month is a new type of combo, the stencil-n-stamp. Stencils are used to create larger elements and the coordinating stamps add focal points and fine details. Waffle Flower’s first stencil-n-stamp is the adorable Fall for You by artist Cassie Loizeaux (stencil-n-stamp).
Now, Let me show you all four cards I’ve made with these fun products!
<Card 1>

Scene building with crafting tools has been one of my favorite parts of card making. I created grasses and clouds by ink blending over Keeway’s Grass Scene Stencil with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio.

While I was waiting for inks to dry, I stamped out the images from Learning from home stamp set with Memento rich coco dye pink and colored with copic markers. I die cut them using the Matching dies and arranged them onto my A2 sized background with liquid glue and foam tapes. At last, I stamped the sentiment “Thank you..” and embellished the card with Stardust Enamel dots.

<Card 2>

I can feel the holidays are approaching, can you?! As  you scroll down the post, you’ll notice I’ve made the rest of my cards Christmassy. To prepare my background, I laid Inky Stripes Stencil over an A2 sized card base and blended Black Soot Tim Holtz Distress ink over.

I gold embossed the sentiment from Essential Sentiments Stamp set over black card stock paper, then cut into an rectangular piece over gold embossed mat. I arranged this centerpiece using Foam tapes over the prepared background.

To decorate the sentiment piece, I stamped couple images from Poinsettia Stamp set and die cut with the matching dies. I copic colored them and placed onto two corners of the centerpiece.

<Card 3>

The holiday spirit just continues! For making this card, I combined multiple stencils we are releasing in this month. I created the circle using Spotlight Circle Stencil with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink, then I added trees using Keeway’s Mountain Scene Stencil with Lucky Clover distress oxide ink.  I splattered white paints to create a snowy day and added pink stripes onto the background using Inky Stripes Stencil with Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink.

To add the characters, I stamped the mice from Fa-La-La Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. I added sentiment “Fa-la-la!” to the scene and end with Stardust enamel dots.

<Card 4>

Here comes the last one. What a joyful scene. I picked out 3 fun holiday colors: Pink, Green and Blue and blended them over Keeway’s Mountain Scene Stencil to create my background patterns. Then I  stamped images from Happy Gnomes Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. I copic colored them and arranged them onto the background. I want my sentiment to be simple over this crowded scene, I stamped “Merry xmas” from Holiday Cheese Stamp set and it worked out perfectly!

    I love the card with the mice carolers and the b/w stripes w/ the beautiful poinsettias. The others are pretty, too, and I like that scene builder stencil w/ the trees on a ridge. Easy to find lots of uses for that!
    TFS!!

    So cute! I love those little clusters of trees behind those darling gnomes. And the wonky striped backgrounds are great.

    Adorable cards! I am quick becoming a fan of stencils! So easy cover backgrounds or create layers and not nearly as expensive as stamps and dies!

    Awesome cards! I love the scenes you created with the clouds, grass and trees! The kitties and gnomes are adorable! Great use of the Inky Stripes Stencil for the backgrounds on your floral card and the card with the darling mice!
