Hello friends! Today is Waffle Flower Craft’s February Release Blog Hop!! Yahoo! I’m so so excited about this release because very single product this month is just so SO pretty!
Once again I have plethora of cards to share with you so lets drive right in! 🙂
First up is the absolutely gorgeous Peony Dreams Combo Set illustrated by Oana Befort!
Isn’t this set just glorious!! I know I shouldn’t pick favorites but I think this is my most favorite set in this release! The flowers are so fun to color and the girls are so elegant and beautiful!
I created a video for this card so please check it out below or on my YouTube channel.
Copic Colored Peony Dreams
Of course could not stop at just one card with this dreamy set!
For my second card, I first stamped the images in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in using Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Next, die cut the images out with the matching dies.
I created the background with the Tile Panel Die and adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding card base made from 110lb white cardstock. I then added the colored images with foam tape and completed the card with a few clear enamel dots from WFC’s Clean & Clear pack.
Next set is the adorable Be Her Combo Set illustrated by Big Bear and Bird. This is such a darling set! The four critters are so sweet and all the accessories are so fun to play with!
I decided these images were perfect for Valentines so I created 4 using the Love Notes Die as the base. I stamped and copic colored all the critters and several accessories.
I then die cut them with the matching dies and added to the front of the love notes. I then die cut hearts out of colored cardstock and stamped a sentiment onto the larger hearts using the Favorite Valentine Combo Set.
I then adhered the large heart inside the note and several of the smaller hearts to the inside and outside of the note. I finished the Valentines by adding Stickles to the tiny the hearts and some of the images.
Next up is the darling Little Fairies Combo illustrated by Kamo. This set is seriously just too cute!
For my first card I stamped several images from the Little Fairies Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images with Distress Inks. Once colored I die cut the images out with the matching dies. I then die cut a dome using the A2 Nested Domes Die Set out of craft foam and white cardstock. I then adhered the foam and cardstock domed frame together and then ink blended a background on the dome negative with distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon).
Next, I die cut grass using the Chunky Grass Die and then ink blended with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Next, I trimmed the grass to fit inside the dome and then stamped the sentiment and then constructed the dome. Next, I filled the scene with the colored images. I then die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Diamond Texture Die and adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. I then finished the card by adhering the dome and then adding sparkle with Stickles and iridescent sequins.
For my second project I decided to create a shaker card!
Just like before I stamped and watercolored the images from the Little Fairies Stamp Set with Distress Inks. I then ink blended a background with a rainbow of WFC inks. I then die cut the panel with the largest die from the Stitched Layers Die Set. I then used the same die to create a matching frame out of craft foam. I then adhered the cardstock frame to an A2 panel of acetate and then adhered that to the foam frame.
Next, I adhered the negative ink blended panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then constructed a scene inside with my colored images and then stamped the sentiment. Next, I added some iridescent bubbles to the scene and then poured some chunky flower glitter onto the scene. I then finished the card by adhering the top of the shaker down.
For my third card (yes THIRD) I decided to create a spinner card.
I started by stamping and coloring the images in same manner I did for the previous two cards. I did do some mirrored stamping to create the other side of the fairy which I will have a video on in the near future. Once the images were all colored I die cut them with the matching dies. I then stamped a background onto a yellow panel with a small flower from the set in WFC’s You Said What dye ink.
After I stamped the panel I die cut it with a circle die from the Nesting Circles 2 Die and the largest die from the Nesting Rectangles 1 Die. I then used the panel to align the same circle die onto the front of an A2 top-folding card case then ran it through my die cutting machine. I then taped my string to the card front, then glued the stamped panel onto. Lastly I finished the card by adhering my fairy to the string and the rest of the images and some crystals to the card front.
Next is the stunning Be You Tiful Combo Set by Karla Jodoin.
For this card I stamped the images in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished coloring I die cut the images with the matching dies.
I then die cut a coral panel with the Diamond Texture Die then adhered it to an A2 top-folding card. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto black cardstock and then die cut with the matching dies. I then finished the card by adhering the images and sentiment with foam tape and embellishing with clear sequins.
Next up is the beautiful and versatile Diamond Texture Die and the Label Greetings Combo. I’m such a sucker for any panel die! They are just so useful, they can pretty much can work for every occasion, and they are a great accompaniment to many different techniques! And this first group of cards is a good example of that.
First, I die cut three A2 panels of Bristol paper with the Diamond Texture Die. I then loosely colored the diamond sections of the panels with a variety of Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once the panels were colored I then spritzed the panel with water to activate the ink to get it moving and flowing.
I also used a small brush to help move the ink to completely cover the panels or mix more. I then let the panels dry. Once dry I adhered the panels onto a top-folding card base and then added a white heat embossed sentiment created with the Greeting Labels Combo Set.
These first cards are very technique focused but the simplicity of this second card really shows off the beauty of this die.
For this card I simply die cut a panel of silver mirrored cardstock with the Diamond Texture Die.
Last is the sweet Tiny Terrarium Stamp Set which is also illustrated by Big Bear and Bird.
For this card, I simply stamped the image and a sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. I then copic colored the image.
Once colored I trimmed the panel down and then adhered it onto a black card base.
And that’s a wrap! Phew!
