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.

Christmas spirits – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Everyone!

There are 17 days left till Christmas. Are you ready for it? Did you decorate your tree? Did you hang up the lights? Did you make your holiday cards? If not yet, I am going to bring you some Christmas Spirits with two of my cards!

<Card 1>

To make this card, I cut the window opening using Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Tag  2 die over a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. Then I layered Wide Stripes Stencil over the panel and blended Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in candied apple. Once it’s done, I also ink blended the card base lightly used Worn lipstick distress oxide ink.

I cut the Christmas tree using Pretty Pink Posh Tree Shaker Die and inked with Cracked Pistachio distress oxide ink and decorated with Jewels in Raspberry color. Then I stamped and copic colored my selected images from Animal Signs stamp set and cut with the Coordinating dies and some stash from other Pretty Pink Posh stamp sets. After attached them on to my prepped background, I added Sparkling Clear sequins to finish this card.

<Card 2>

After using red color for my last card, I decided to shift my gear to another traditional color: Green. I heavily ink blended Lucky Clover and a little bit Peacock Feather Distress oxide inks onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor card. Then sprayed some water to take some intensify color off the background.

Coloring is always the fun part of card making for me. I stamped all ornament images from Decorative Ornaments Stamp set and cut with the Coordinating dies. Then I colored them with copic markers. I adhered them onto my background using Foam tape to create dimensions. At last, I stamped sentiment “Season’s greetings” and added Raspberry jewels.

Technically you still have more than two weeks to make your cards. Hope you will be productive during this week! See you soon!

MFT&Friends November 2019 Release

Good Morning!

Welcome to MFT&FRIENDS November 2019 Release! I feel super lucky to be invited to join them for this exciting event so I could get to know more crafty people in this loving crafting society. I always love how My Favorite Things combines variety of styles and designs for their stamps and dies. So it’s fairly quick for me to create those three cards below.

<Card 1>

Do you believe it’s November already?! That means we’d better make sure we’ll have enough amount of Christmas cards before the holiday arrives. To start my first card, I stamped all images from Polar Penguins Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah solar white 80lbs card stock paper. Then I die cut them with the Coordinating Dies. I colored all images using Copic alcohol markers and set aside for later use. Since I was in a Pink Christmas mood I made sure to have add it to all accessories.

Now it’s time to prepare the frame and background scene for all characters to be in. To create the frame, I die cut my frame using Inside&Out Stitched Rectangle Stax  out of a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. I inked the frame with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Picked Raspberry to match the color scene.

To create the nighty sky. I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot onto the negative part of my frame die cuts.Then I splattered white watercolor paint over the background by tapping the paint brush handle. Once it’s dry, I die cut couple pieces of clouds using Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics to mimic snow banks, then I attached it onto my inked background using liquid adhesive and foam tapes.

I attached all color images onto the background and white embossed the sentiment “Have a Cool Holiday” to add to this card.

<Card 2>

I love to color whole bunch of images at one time, so it is really easy to put together my second card. I went for the traditional Christmas color combo which is red and green, and I added a little bit blue to pop out of the main colors. The images are still from Polar Penguins Stamp set and cut with the Coordinating dies. As a MFT friend of this month, I got to have a few cool products to play with. I combined some of them onto this card to make it more fun.

I stamped my background using VersaMark ink onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper and embossed with white embossing powders. Then I ink blended the background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Twisted Citron. My background is slightly busy, so trimmed a rectangle piece out of vellum paper and attached it to the center of my background. I die cut the piece using Mod Link 2 Die-namic out of white card stock and glued it onto the lower portion of my card to create snowy ground

I arranged my colored images onto the background and added the sentiment “Have a Cool Holiday” by stamping and embossing with embossing powders. I finished the card with some Sparkling Clear sequins.

<Card 3>

Raise your hand if you love giraffes! They are so stinking cute from this new stamp set called Giraffes on Ice! Who cares if they can really ice skating or not, LOL, Anything can happen in our stamping world! To make this card, I first used one of stencils from Winter Stencil Strips to create my upper and lower pattern on the background by blending Tim Holtz Distress ink in Candied Apple over. Then I cut two pieces of 3.5″ by 4′ panels. I ink blended one with Cracked Pistachio distress oxide ink and cut the circle window using Wonky stitched Circle Stax, and I created the snowy hills and sky using the image within this stamp pairing ink blended Salty Ocean oxide ink with white paint splatters.

I layered the window frame over the background using foam tape and attached the whole piece onto my HoHoHo card base. The main background is made. I stamped the images from Giraffes on Ice Stamp set an die cut with the Coordinating Dies, then I arranged them onto the background. I stamped the sentiment “Happy Freezin’ Season” onto a piece of black card stock paper and embossed it with white embossing powders. Then I hand cut the strip and added it on the card for the final touch.

I am so glad to be here hanging out all of you and I hope you will have lots of fun playing with this release. Can’t wait to see what you will create!

Waffle Flower 2019 November Release Blog Hop

 

Welcome to Waffle Flower November 2019 Release Blog Hop! We just finished the excited Halloween, now it’s time for us to get ready for more holidays! This month, Waffle Flower is introducing two whimsical style sets:  Blessed Bear from artist Big Bear and Bird, and Winter Hamsters from illustrator Liz Mytinger.  Also new this month is the beautiful floral set Sunflower Love by illustrator Karla Jodoin.  This floral set pairs beautifully with the calligraphy style sentiment set Simply Said 1.  For those who enjoy coordinating panel dies and sentiment sets, there’s the new Herringbone Panel and Herringbone Sentiments.  Rounding out the release are the Rainbow Thank You and Cozy Cabin die sets.  For more details on the release, be sure to check out the monthly release video or check out the introductions on the Waffle Flower blog!

<Card 1>

For this card, I combined the new stamp and die from this release. I die cut all pieces out of white card stock paper using Cozy Cabin Die and inked them with distress oxide inks and Copic markers. Then I prepped the background using Tim Hotlz Distress oxide ink in Worn lipstick over a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. I attached all die cut pieces over the background with liquid adhesive and foam tapes to create my Christmas in door scene.

Now I stamped the images from Winter Hamsters Stamp set onto Neenah Solar white 80lbs card stock paper and die cut with the Matching dies. After I colored them with Copic markers and I added them to the background. I stamped my sentiment “Warmest Wishes!” with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added some details with white gel pen to finish my first card.

<Card 2>

I am always excited to what Big Bear and Bird is going to bring for the new release. She did not let me down at all. To start with my card, I chose to a very simple two tones background ink blending with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and Twisted Citron. I splattered a mixture of Lucky Clover oxide ink and water over the lower portion of this card to create some texture.

I stamped and Copic colored the images from Blessed Bear Stamp set and die cut them with the Matching Dies. I arranged them onto my background using glue and foam tapes and finished with sentiment to the top.

<Card 3>

You cannot miss the floral illustrations in every release. We are getting to the end of fall but sunflowers are still blooming well in some of locations.  I colored the images from Sunflower Love Stamp set and die cut them with the Matching Dies. Then I stamped the sentiment “love you” from Simply Said 1 Stamp set into the frame.

Since the stamp image is fairly large and detailed, I prepared my background by ink blending with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink ink Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean pairing some ink splatters. In the end, I simply added my colored image with foam tape to the background.

<Card 4>

Here comes my last card for this blog hop. I love all graphic panel dies, they are always so easy to use for card making especially when you have some time crunch. I wanted it to be simple but not too simple, so I went for making a shaker card. First of all, I ink blended my background onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Picked Raspberry and Blueprint Sketch. Then I splattered tons of white watercolor paint over it to create snowflakes effect. Once it’s dry, I die cut the panel using Herringbone Panel Die. I stamped the sentiment “Keep the Faith” from Herringbone Sentiment Stamp set using VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powders.

I poured  lots of Spark! white tassel glitters to the card base and I added my prepped front panel over it with thicker foam strips. At last, I added some of enamel dots from Waffle Flower Clean & Clear Enamel Dots.

Joy to the world from your penguin friends – Mama elephant

Good morning Everyone!

A while ago, I went for a big splurge on Mama Elephant Stamps and dies. It is just very hard to resist their cute products especially holiday series. I finally got to sit down and play with them a little bit.

To make this card, I die cut the Ornate House Grid Die out of a piece of red card stock paper. Then I splattered white acrylic paint over the panel and adhered a piece of acetate paper underneath. To create this shaker card, I first ink blended the background paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch. I white embossed the sentiment from Merry Christmas Wishes Stamp set, poured white spark elements and close the window using foam tapes.

I stamped images from Little Penguin Agenda Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar white 80 lbs card stock paper and colored with copic markers. Then I hand fussy cut selected images with my scissors. To save your time, you can get the coordinating dies for those images. At last, I adhered those adorable colored images around my shaker windows.

Hope you feel the holiday spirit from my card. I will see you soon with more projects!

Pretty Pink Posh October 2019 Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of Pretty Pink Posh October Product Release Blog Hop! If you are impressed with the first day of Blog Hop, You would be over the top with another group of talented card designers with me today. I’ve been on Pretty Pink Posh Design Team for a little more than a year now. I love all the products and Christmas products are always the most exciting one out of all! Today I will show you two cards I made with the new release products.

<Card 1>

To make this card, I started to lay Pretty Pink Posh Snowflakes Stencil over the A2 sized white card base and ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled glass over. Then I splattered white acrylic paint over the background by tapping a paint brush handle. I rested it aside to dry.

 

To prepare my centerpiece, I used Pretty Pink Posh Winter scene Die to cut out of white and red card stock. I removed the center piece of red die cut and laid the red circle frame over my white die cut, then I assembled the pieces within the die cut using liquid adhesive or foam tape. I decorated the sky part with nuvo crystal drops in Simply White, copic colored the trees, and splattered white acrylic paint over the ground to mimic the snow.

I stamped the snowman with the signs from Holiday Sign Stamp set and the small snowman in the back from Joy Stamp set, I die cut them with their coordinating dies ( Holiday Signs / Joy ) . Then I colored them with copic markers and attached to my centerpiece. At last, I attached my centerpiece onto the background and that’s my first card.

<Card 2>

For my second card, I went for simple but not too simple style. I stamped the JOY graphic images and other elements  from Joy Stamp set and die cut with the Coordinating dies. I also die cut another set of JOY bold letters out of a piece of red card stock paper. For coloring them, I stayed with two tones color combo which is red and blue.

I chose a piece of A2 sized card stock paper as base, then adhered a piece of slightly skinnier white card stock paper over. I overlapped two bold letter cut out slightly off set to create 3D effect. Then I attached all colored images onto the background using foam tapes to finish my card.
