Hello all and welcome to Waffle Flower Crafts’ November Release Blog Hop!!
There are some really cute sets and I can’t wait to share with you all my cards so let’s dive right in!
First up is the fun Winter Wishes Stamp Set, illustrated by Kamo. I had so a blast playing with many different techniques with this set! I love the graphic look of the kids and how easy it was to align the stamp layers!
I created a video in which I use partial ink to ink each kid up in a different hue and create gradations to add more visual interest.

For this second card, I stamped the kids from the Winter Wishes Stamp Set and the dog from the Cool Dog Stamp Set in antique linen Distress Ink and did some no-line watercoloring with Holbein watercolors.
I also sketched out the rest of their bodies and watercoloring those sections as well.
To finish up the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Winter Wishes set in VersaFine Onyx Black and then stamped and watercolored some hearts from the Holiday Thanks Stamp Set.
For my last card with the Winter Wishes Set, I first stamped the kids in Distress Oxides; Lucky Clover, Twisted Citron, Abandoned Coral and Spun Sugar, diagonally on the top and bottom of an A2 card panel cut with the largest die from the A2 Nested Rectangles 1 Die Set.
After I stamped the kids, I stamped some stripes with the Plaid Play Stamp Set.
I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Winter Wishes Stamp Set onto a stripe coral cardstock and then adhered the stripe onto my panel.
Next up is the Holiday Thanks Stamp Set. I created 2 cards with this sweet set illustrated by Big Bear and Bird.
For my first card I stamped the main image and a sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink onto an A2 Panel made from Canson cold press watercolor paper.
Next, I watercolored the main image in with Holbein watercolors.
And to finishe the card I simply glued the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base.
Next up is simple but elegant card using tone-on-tone coloring to add depth and volume.
I created a video for this card as well and you can check it out over at Simon Says Stamp.
