Waffle Flower 2019 September Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower September 2019 Release Blog Hop! This release combined some gorgeous stamps and dies, along with some basic nesting dies that works well with all projects. I picked some of products to show you four cards below.

<Card 1>

My first card is something that you could mass produce when you don’t have lots of time. To start with my card, I used Nesting Circles Die to cut differnet sizes of circle and ink blended them with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Picked RaspberryWorn lipstick, Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade.

I arranged those inked circles onto a piece of A2 sized water color paper using Foam tapes to create dimensions. I added Up & Running Enamel dots to coordinate each colors. Then I splattered some gold paint over the background.

I stamped the sentiment from Happy Retirement Stamp set onto a piece of black card stock paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I die cut them with the Matching Die and adhered them onto the background with foam tape.

<Card 2>

I am always in love with beautiful floral by Karla Jodoin.  I stamped this fairly large image from Poppy Hawthorn Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto  a piece of 80 lbs Neenah Solar White card stock paper and die cut with the Matching Dies. Then I colored it with Copic markers.

To create the background, I die cut 3 sized squares using Nesting Squares Die and ink blended them with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio. I adhered them diagonally onto a A2 sized water color paper. 

I attached the colored images onto the background and lightly splattered black ink over the panel to create some artsy effect. At last, I white embossed the sentiment “thank you” from the same stamp set and final touched my card.

<Card 3>

This card is a fun card. I used the negative part of die cut from my first card to create my main lay out. I highly encourage you to try using scraps to create new products. I used pencil lightly draw the circles onto another piece of white card stock paper guided by this circle panel I have.  Then I ink blended them using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean and Worn lipstick.

When I don’t know what colors to use for my images, I always go with the basic colors I have in the background. I quickly Copic colored my characters from Little Artists Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies.

I attached my colored images onto the background using liquid adhesive and foam tapes, then added Up & Running Enamel Dots to finish this card.

<Card 4>

My last card features the most popular print from Big Bear and Bird. Since the image is large and fun, I really don’t need to do a lot of embellishments. To create my window, I cut it with Nesting Ovals Die out of an A2 sized watercolor paper. I ink blended the background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick. 

I colored the images from Bear Hugs Stamp set and cut with the Matching Dies. I attached it within the oval window and stamped the sentiment “Bear Hugs for you” . And of course, a little bit Up & Running Enamel dots makes my card more fun!

Waffle Flower and Imagine Crafts Collaboration 2019

Good morning everyone!

I have to say, I am so blessed to be on Waffle Flower Design Team and got to collaborate with other wonderful companies like Imagine Crafts with exciting new products. I picked Tsukineko StazOn Pigment ink pads and a few Mboss embossing Powders to pair with Waffle Flower Big Dots Stamp and Dies Combo for my today’s exploring.

To start with my card, I cut 5 stripes out of 80 lbs white card stock paper which measured 1.5 inches wide. Then I rubbed the inks from StazOn Pigment ink pads onto the paper stripes.The color that I used was Lemon Drop, Orange Peel, Pink Cosmos, Shamrock Green and Peacock Feathers. These pigment inks dry fairly quick comparing to others, so I quickly poured Mboss embossing powder in Gold Glitter over the inked stripes and heated to set.

Now I got 5 glitter strips in vibrant colors.

I cut out my front panel using Waffle Flower Big Dots Die out of a piece of 100 lbs white card stock paper.

I attached all strips onto a piece of A2 sized cardstock paper with preferred colors in order using glue.

I adhered my front panel over the strip background with foam strips to create dimensions. In the end, I stamped my sentiment “HELLO” from Waffle Flower Big Dots Sentiments Stamp set  onto the center of my panel using StazOn Pigment ink in Grape Candy to finish my card.

Hope you are inspired and willing to try all of these goodies. Have a good crafting day!

Best Wishes From Me to You – Pretty Pink Posh

Oh hello my crafty friends,

I would like to share another card that I made with Pretty Pink Posh August release products. They just go with each other so well.

To begin with, I laid Autumn Leave Stencil over a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper and ink blended with Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough. Then I colored images from Sunflowers Stamp set and Bear Friends Stamp set, and die cut with the Coordinating dies (Sunflowers / Bear Friends)

After I attached all colored images with liquid adhesive and foam tapes, I stamped the sentiment from Bear Friends onto upper right corner of my card and added jewels in Harvest Mix.

I hope you like this card. I will be back soon to inspire you more!

Pretty Pink Posh August 2019 Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Pretty Pink Posh August 2019 Release Blog Hop Day 1! Believe or not, we are stepping into Holiday zone Again. Time just flies like nobody’s business. Making holiday cards is one of my favorite things this time of year. I hope you grab some new goodies from Pretty Pink Posh and hop for prize with us! I made two cards this time to show you some of must have products for Halloween and Fall  in my opinion.

<Card 1>

We like to dress up for Halloween. Why not dress those cute critters as well?! To begin with my first card, I ink blended my background onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tea Dye, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet and Black soot. Then I splattered white acrylic paint over it by tapping the handle of a small sized paint brush. 

I colored my images using Copic markers. Images used from Fall signs stamp set (Squirrel ) and cut with the coordinating dies , Boo Stamp set (Hat, ghost, bat ) and cut with the coordinating dies, Halloween Friends ( BOO! sentiment ). After I set them aside, I started to prepare my pumpkin  shaker. I cut my pumpkin frame using Grateful Shaker Die and removed the center piece with a pair of scissors. To ink the pumpkin frame, I used Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and Carved Pumpkin. Then I attached a piece of acetate paper underneath the frame. I hand draw and cut the outline of the pumpkin onto another piece of paper and inked with Carved Pumpkin Distress oxide ink. I poured tons of orange mini star confetti from Fall Confetti Bundle and sealed the shaker with strong liquid adhesive.

I attached pumpkin shaker window onto my prepped background, and added the fence that I cut using Spooky Fence Die out of black card stock paper. I arranged all colored images and finished my card using Glossy Black Jewels.

<Card2>

Now my next card features quite a bit new products as well. To start with, I ink blended over Pumpkin Background Stencil onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper using Tim Hotlz Distress oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade. Then I splattered Spiced Marmalade and water mixture over the background. I cut out my white frames using Scalloped Frame Die and adhered them onto the background with liquid adhesive and Foam tape.

Then I copic colored my sunflower images from Sunflowers Stamp set and die cut with the Coordinating dies, Scarecrow and fall harvest images from Fall Signs Stamp set and die cut with the Coordinating Dies. I did cut the frame line from fall harvest image with scissors to fit into my needs. I also stamped the sentiment onto the frame that scarecrow is carrying.

After arranging all colored images onto the background, I added jewels from Harvest Jewel Mix to embellish my card. I hope you like those two cards and don’t forget to check out other blog hop participators’  blog!

Waffle Flower 2019 August Release Blog Hop

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.

<Card 1>

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.

<Card 2>

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.

<Card 3>

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.

<Color Swatches>

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.

Happy Summer- Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! It is mid summer now. I hope everyone had a great summer so far!

To make this card, I cut my half moon shaped window using Pink Posh Posh Window Frames Die out of a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper.Then I ink blended the negative cut out using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. I splattered ink mixtures over the front panel and attached it over the base with Foam tape.

I stamped the images from Tropical Toucans Stamp set and Hibiscus Flowers Stamp set and cut out with the Coordinating dies (Tropical Toucans / Hibiscus Flowers). After colored them with copic markers, I arranged them around the window.

I cut out the sentiment script from Happy Summer Script Die from white card stock. Then I inked it with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover. I attached the sentiment onto the lower of my card panel and added Sparkling Clear sequins and Jewels in Lemon drop to finish my card.

Pretty Pink Posh is going to have a new release in August. Please stick around for all excitements!

Sending You Sunshine – Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Thursday! It was very hot here. My garden has been suffering from 102 F heat and will be continued taking the heat up to 107 F for this coming Sunday. Praying for my plants to boost up their surviving skills. How’s the weather at your place?

I made this card to pretend that I am enjoying my vacation in tropical weather so I could magically avoid our Sacramento heat wave. To begin with this card, I colored the leaf images from Pretty Pink Posh Hibiscus Flowers Stamp set and Birdies from Tropical Birds Stamp set, then die cut them with the Coordinating Dies. (Hibiscus Flowers / Tropical Birds )

I cut the center of an A2 sized watercolor paper using Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Hearts Die to create the main heart window. Then I ink blended the bottom part of this front panel using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick. I mixed the same ink with water randomly splattered over the inked background. When everything dried, I made my leafy pattern to see through the heart window and attached the front panel with Foam tapes.

I stamped the sentiment from Tropical Birds Stamp set to the lower portion of my card and added Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish it.

Thanks for stopping by. I will show you another summer card in couple days! XOXO…

Alonha! – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Friends!

I’ve been a little distant from blogging because I was in the process of changing to a stable server. Now here I am.

I am showing you a very vibrant card I made recently. To begin with my card, I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed, Worn lipstick and Tumbled Glass onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper.

I die cut a piece of white card stock paper 3 times out of Pretty Pink Posh Aloha Shaker Die. I inked them with Wilted Violet distress oxide ink and removed the word script out of two of them. Then I arranged them onto my prepped background using Foam stripes.

I stamped the birdie images from Tropical Toucans Stamp set and die cut them with the Coordinating Dies. I colored them with copic markers and arranged around my background patterns.

I finished my card by adding some Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Sparkling Clear Seed Beads.

Stay around this week to see more cards from me!!!

To begin with my card, I stamped images from Bonjour Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. Then I colored them with copic markers and set aside for later use.

I ink blended my background with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink ink Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper, Then I used Horizontal Stripes Die to cut them into pieces. I assemble them onto another piece of A2 sized card stock paper using Foam tapes and glue to create background dimensions.

I prepped my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Gathered Twigs for the bottom part of A2 sized card stock paper. Then I splattered Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink water mixture to the upper part of background. Once everything was dry, I used copic markers to create dots in the brown part to mimic sands. I arranged all colored images onto my ground and stamped the sentiment “Have Fun In the Sun” to end my second card.

 

<Card 3>

Bouquet Builder 4 ,  illustrated by Oana Befort, features large, modern, flowers that you can mix and match to create your own bouquet.

This time, I chose to fall back to a simple and almost one layer card.  I stamped the images from Bouquet Builder 4 Stamp Set and Die cut with the Matching Dies.Then I colored them with copic markers and set aside for later use.

I grabbed Neeah dessert storm card stock paper and made it into a vertical folded card base. I splattered white paint over the front panel to create some interests. I adhered all selected images onto this prepped background with multi medium matte. I stamped the sentiment “HELLO” from Peony Notes Stamp set (released from last month) and I hand cut it with scissors. In the end, I attached this sentiment onto the lower right corner of my card.

<Card 4>

Here comes the last card of today’s inspirations. We have this stunning Zinnia illustrated by Karla Jodoin with gorgeous details.

Then I cut my overlay panel using Micro Grid Panel 1 Die out of white card stock paper. I attached the die cut over the inked background to create my dimension-ed panel.

Now I copic colored the images from Zinnia Stamp set and die cut them with the Matching Dies. I arranged them on the card panel with multi medium matte and foam tapes. I stamped the sentiment “Thank you” from Peony Dreams Stamp set  and I hand cut it with scissors. I attached it between my two Zinnia flowers with foam tape.
