[Video] Wet on Wet Watercoloring 

[Video] Wet on Wet Watercoloring 

Hello everyone!! Today I’m over at Waffle Flower Crafts’ blog with a new technique video!!


This time I’m demonstrating wet on wet watercoloring. This is such a fun and loose technique! It is so amazing to watch too, it looks like the paint is painting itself! And I love the results. You end up with a more molten or varied look that is really beautiful. 

I hope you will stop by Waffle Flower and check it out!

Have a wonderful day!!

Waffle Flower Crafts Winter 2017 Release – Part 3

Waffle Flower Crafts Winter 2017 Release – Part 3

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a crafty Saturday!! I have some great products to share with you all today from Waffle Flower’s Winter Release!! 

Today I’m sharing some cards I made using the some of beautiful dies from the release and some cards made with the awesome Layering Marble Stamp Set!!


First up is this card made with the beautiful Magical Flower 1 Die, the Hey Hi Hello Di, and  my personal favorite because I make A7 cards and have been wanting a die set that could cut a stitched 5×7 panel for so so so long, the Lacy Layers 5×7 Die!

First, I cut some 1.4″ strips from 5 different sheets of colored paper and adhered the to a 5×7 panel of white cardstock. I then die cut 4 flowers with the Magical Flower 1 die and adhered them to the panel. I then die cut the panel with the largest die from the Lacy Layers 5×7 set to add that beautiful stitched detail around the edges.


 I then adhered this panel onto my card base which was slightly larger than 5×7 because I liked the tiny bit of white peeking out from the bottom. Next, I die cut the hello sentiment using the Hey Hi Hello dies from white cardstock and white craft foam. I then adhered the two together and adhered them onto my card!


Next up is card made with the Magical Flower 1 Die, Magical Flower 2 Die and of course the Lacy Layers 5×7 Die again! 

First I cut a 5×7 panel from white cardstock using the Lacy Layers 5×7 dies. Next I ink blended You said what, New Fish in Pond, and Peace of Mind along the left side of the panel. I then die cut several flowers with the Magical Flower 1 & 2 dies from white cardstock and adhered them to the panel. 


I then stamped and white embossed a sentiment from the Enveloper Kindness stamp set on a strip of black cardstock. Lastly, I adhered my panel and sentiment to my card base and added some clear sequins. 


For this card I used the gorgeous Magical Flower Border Die and the sweet Magical Butterfly Die, and yes you guessed it the Lacy Layers 5×7 Dies

First, I ink blended My Pleasure, Safe Choice, and Happy Go Lucky on my A7 card base. I then stamped and gold embossed a sentiment from the Enveloper Choice Stamp Set. Next I die cut a frame from white cardstock with the Lacy Layers 5×7 dies. 


Then I die cut 2 Magical Flower Borders and a Magical Butterfly from white cardstock. I then I adhered my floral borders to my frame and adhered the frame to my cardbase with foam tape. Lastly I cut my butterfly’s wings then adhered them and then the body to my card. 

Okay next is the awesome awesome Layering Marble Stamp Set!!!! 


This stamp set so so fun!!! I just love playing with ink color combinations and creating my own marble papers! 

I made a VIDEO demonstrating how I made these cards and I shared some of my tips for layering sets. You can check out that video at Waffle Flower’s Blog


For each one of the cards I stamped the marble with different three inks on a A7 card base. 


For this one I started with green cardstock and gold embossing for the third layer. After I finished the stamping the marble I created the sentiment by die cutting the Celebrate Word Die or Perfect Word Die out of a strip of colored cardstock. I then pressed the die cut “Celebrate” or “Perfect” into my embossing ink pad and then embossed it in either gold or silver. 


I then inlaid the word back into the strip and stamped the rest of my sentiment. I used the either the Congrats, Hibiscus, or Shellabrate Stamp sets to complete my sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

Waffle Flower Crafts Winter 2017 Release – Part 2

Waffle Flower Crafts Winter 2017 Release – Part 2

Hello everyone!! I hope you all are having a wonderful Friday!! 😁 As promised I have more cards to share today using stamps and dies from Waffle Flower Crafts’ Winter 2017 Release! 

This release contains several stamp sets designed by two very talented illustrators, Big Bear & Bird and Helen Dardik. Yesterday I shared all the cards I made using the stamp sets designed by Helen Dardik, so today I’m sharing my cards using the sets designed by Big Bear & Bird! 

First up is the super cute set, Bear and Bird

 Isn’t this just so so adorable!! For this card I simply stamped images from the Bear and Bird stamp set in memento tuxedo black and then colored the images in with my copics! With images this cute you don’t need to do much more than that! 

For this second card I got creative with the bear and removed the bird and then added a hat and a camera. I also create a girl bear by removing the bird and adding a flower and a bouquet! And like the previous card, I simply colored my images in with copics and then adhered them to my card base. 

Next up is the cheeky Hey Girl Stamp Set! 


For this card, I first cut a 5×7 panel using the new Lacy Layers 5×7 dies, my most FAVORITE dies ever because I have been wanting Set of stitched rectangle dies for 5×7 cards for so so so long! I can’t tell you how happy these dies make me!! 

After I cut my panel I cut a square out using the Doily Square Die. I then stamped, copic colored, and die cut images from the Hey Girl stamp set. Next, I cut some leaves using the new Greenery Dies, which are beyond awesome by the way, from some green cardstock. I then colored the leaves with my copic. 


Next I ink blended Chirp Chirp, New Fish in Pond and Daydreaming dye inks on my card base and then adhered my panel onto my card based with foam tape. I then arranged and adhered my stamped images and die cut leaves. Lastly, I stamped and white embossed a sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and adhered it to my card! 


For this card, I stamped the sloth with the cake on a rectangle cut using the Pinking Layer Dies. I then colored him with my copics and adhered the rectangle to my card base. Next I stamped the banner and added cupcakes and my sentiment inside. I then too colored these with my copics and fussy cut them out. Lastly, I used my hole punch to punch the corners of my banners, strung some twine through, and then adhered everything onto my card! 

And last up is the sweet Popping In Stamp Set


First, I stamped my images, copic colored them, and then die cut then using the coordinating die set. I then masked off a portion of my card base and then blended Coffee Love Milk dye ink. I then stamped my sentiment, created a frame using Lacy Layers 2 dies, and then adhered all my element onto my base. 

My second card is very similar to my first. I also stamped and copic colored my images. This time however I did a little masking and created a little boy bunny using the onesie and the forward facing bunny. 


After all my images were colored I fussy cut them out. I also masked a portion of my panel and ink blended to ground my scene and then I adhered all my images. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment! 

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards. Tomorrow I’ll have even more goodies to share with you all! Have a wonderful day!
