Colorful Flowers with Minimal to Zero Coloring

Colorful Flowers with Minimal to Zero Coloring

In today’s video, I share with you a unique technique for creating a beautiful colorful bouquet with minimal to zero coloring! This technique is prefect those times when you might not want to or have time to color. Plus it highlights all those fine details in the intricate stamp sets like the stunning Zinnia Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Crafts.

Colorful Flowers with Minimal to Zero Coloring

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I stamped the Zinnia onto a light pink colored cardstock and used multi-inking and selective inking techniques to create a gradation on the petals and center with various Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, & Festive Berries).

WFC201907-271253 Zinnia-Channin B1

I then stamped the Zinnia again but this time on light green cardstock in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks and only focusing on the leaves. Then stamped the medium flower in this set in Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin on light yellow cardstock and then the small grouping of flowers in Tumbled Glass onto white cardstock.

Once I finished stamping all the images I then just slightly colored them in with my copics to add some additional depth. After I colored my images in I then fussy cut them out and then diecut an A2 panel of colored cardstock with the Micro Grid Panel 2 Die. I then adhered the panel onto a A2 top-folding card base and then adhered my flowers with foam tape. Lastly I finished the cards with a white heat embossed sentiment from the Zinnia Stamp Set stamped onto black cardstock.

IMG_2570

Though I colored my flowers in for my first card I chose not to for my second. I just repeated all the same steps as above but simply skipped the copic coloring part.

I think both cards turned out great and I love how with this technique allows you to still get bright colorful florals whether you color or not!

I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for stopping by!!

I then used the circle frame as a guide to curve my sentiment in my MISTI and then I stamped it onto the green panel in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Next, I adhered the circle frame onto one that I also cut out of craft foam and then adhered it and the circle background onto the card front and then trimmed off the excess. Next, I finished the trimmed down the cactus and added it to the inside of the circle.

DIY Stencils with Full Panel Dies and Thermoweb

DIY Stencils with Full Panel Dies and Thermoweb

Hello friends! In today’s video, I share another idea for getting the most out of your full panel dies by using them to create your own stencils! Today I’ll use the Shutters, Micro Grid Panel 1 & 2 from Waffle Flower Crafts but you can use whatever dies you have to create. I then combine my DIY stencils with Thermoweb Transfer Gel and Gina K. Glitzy Glitter Gel to create gorgeous shimmery backgrounds to compliment the beautiful flowers from the Bouquet Builder 4 Stamp Set.

DIY Stencils with Full Panel Dies and Thermoweb

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I created my own stencils by diecutting blank stencil sheets with the Shutters Panel and the Micro Grid Panel 1 and 2 dies. I then added Pixie Spray to the back of the stencil and then adhered it to an A2 panel of colored cardstock.

WFC201907-271254 Bouquet Builder 4-Channin A3

Next, I applied either Thermoweb Transfer Gel or Gina K.’s Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil and then allowed it to dry. Once the transfer gel was dry I then used my laminator to foil over the panel.

Waffle Flower Crafts July Release

Waffle Flower Crafts July Release

Hello all! It’s release day over at Waffle Flower Crafts (yasssss!!) and what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop and giveaway!!

00-Blog-Hog-Badge.jpg

This is a big release and once again I have a bunch of cards to share so let drive right in shall we!!:)

First up is the Oversized Merry Combo Set and the Horizontal Strips Die!!! I had a lot of fun playing with these two products! I love playing with color and the Horizontal Strips Die allows me to quickly put together different color combos with my colored cardstock and the Oversized Merry Combo Set is so beautifully designed, modern and clean, I feel like it is impossible not to make anything but absolutely gorgeous cards with this set. Plus these products were perfect for a mass production and so I designed a colorful Christmas card which you could easily recreate a home with whatever colored cardstock you choose!

Mass Production Christmas Card Design

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I trimmed 6 sheets of colored cardstock down to 6 A2 panels (4.25″ x 5.5″). I then diecut each panel with the Horizontal Strips Die. Once all the panels were die cut I then adhered one color of each stripe onto a panel of white cardstock that was just slightly smaller than an A2 panel with liquid glue till I had 6 striped panels. I then diecut out of white cardstock and white craft foam 6 “Merry’s” and then adhered the two together. Next, I positioned the snowflakes and the rest of my sentiment from the Oversized Merry Stamp Set in my MISTI and then stamped and heat embossed each of the striped panels. Once all the panels were heat embossed I adhered them to an A2 top-folding cardbase turned on its side. Then I finished the cards by adhering the dimensional “Merry” to the front of each card.

Next up is the beautiful Zinnia Combo Set illustrated by Karla Jodoin.

WFC201907-271253 Zinnia-Channin A1

For my first card, I stamped several of the florals from the Zinnia Stamp Set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto an A2 panel of Bristol paper. I then used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens (Medium Flower: 885, 062, 993, 933; Long Leaves: 126, 346; Zinnia: 665, 636, 062, 885, 993; Small Flowers: 755, 993; Small Leaves: 243, 228) to watercolor the images in.

I then diecut an A2 panel of white cardstock out with the Circle Texture Die and then adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base turned on its side. Nest I stamped my sentiment in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto white cardstock, colored it in with copics (E50 & E21) and then fussy cut it out. I then attached my flowers and sentiment to my card front with foam tape.

For my next two cards with the Zinnia Combo Set, I wanted to share an idea for creating colorful flowers but with only little to no coloring. A full video on these cards will be live on Wednesday, July 17th.

First, I stamped the Zinnia onto a light pink colored cardstock and used multi-inking and selective inking techniques to create a gradation on the petals and center with various Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, & Festive Berries).

I then finished the card by adhering the pink panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then adhering the craft foam and watercolored panel onto.

Next up is the beautiful Bouquet Builder 4 Combo illustrated by Oana Befort. I decided to combine these pretty flowers with the new full panel dies, Micro Grid Panel 1, Micro Grid Panel 2, and the Shutters Panel Die.

WFC201907-271257 Fun in Sun-Channin A1

First, I created the beach background with the Cloudscape Panel Die. I diecut an A2 panel  of white cardstock with the die and then I partially die cut another panel with the die to create my ocean. I then ink blended the first 3 sections of clouds with the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, then the ocean with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire, and lastly the sand with Antique Linen and Tea Dye.

WFC201907-271257 Fun in Sun-Channin A2

After I finished ink blending the sand I then splattered it with water down Tea Dye to create the look of pebbles. With all my scenery layers done, I then cut off the small section that divided the ground and clouds then adhered the remaining frame, the ocean, sand and 3 ink blended cloud layers to an A2 panel of white cardstock. With my background complete, I then diecut a channel for my slider with the smallest die from the Sentiments Die Set.

WFC201907-271257 Fun in Sun-Channin A3

Next, I stamped my sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on the panel with my MISTI. I then added doubled up foam tape to the backside of the panel as well as on a doubled up small rectangle on the penny. Next, I adhered the panel to an A2 card base, making sure to sandwich the penny between the panel and the card base with the foam tape rectangle inside the channel. I then stamped and copic colored several images from the Fun in Sun Stamp Set then diecut them out with the matching die.

Coffee Cup Shaker Card

Coffee Cup Shaker Card

Hello friends! I have a new card and video to share!! In this video I create a super shiny, super sparkly shaker card with the Coffee Cup Combo from Waffle Flower Crafts! I combine rainbow foil, holographic speciality paper, and a variety of sequins to take the texture and shine of this card to the next level!

Coffee Cup Shaker Card

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I die cut a window using the coffee cup from the Coffee Cup Die Set from an A2 panel of holographic cardstock. I then die cut a heart from the same holographic cardstock. Next, I die cut an A2 panel of white craft foam with the same coffee cup die and set it aside for my shaker. I then foiled a toner sheet with a rainbow transfer sheet and then die cut it with the circle die from the set.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut it out with the matching die. I then constructed the shaker by adhering the craft foam panel to an A2 card base and an A2 panel of acetate to the Holographic panel. I then filled the well with several sequins (Crystal Clear, Silver Polka, & Classic Metallic) from Studio Katia. Once filled I then sealed the shaker with the holographic/acetate panel and then adhered the rainbow circle, sentiment and heart onto.

WFC201906-271251 Coffee Cup-Channin 1B

For the inside, I adhere the negative holographic coffee cup that I die cut earlier. I then die cut the lid from the rainbow foiled toner sheet and then stamped and white heat embossed two sentiment on black cardstock. I then finished the card by adhering the lid and the sentiments to inside.

That’s it! Hope you enjoyed and thank you so much for stopping by!
