Hello all! It’s time for Waffle Flower Crafts March release and blog hop! Yay!!
I have several projects that I’m so excited to share so let’s get started!
Let’s start with one of my favorites the Bouquet Builder 3 Combo Set, illustrated by Karla Jodoin!
For this gorgeous set I decided to do some no-line coloring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
I first stamped the bouquet in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paperand then watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I was finished coloring the bouquet I then dry embossed it with matching die.
To completed the card, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and then trimmed down to two strips. I then adhered the stripes with foam tape and added crystal accents.
Next up is the Be Him Combo Set illustrated by Big Bear & Bird. I loved the previously released Be Her Set and this fun set is just as cute but perfect for creating more masculine cards.
For these cards, I first repeatedly stamped a background using one of the accessories from the Be Him Stamp Set in black onto an A2 panel of colored cardstock. I colored the bows on the coral panel with a coral copic marker.
After I finished the backgrounds I die cut the panels with the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die Set. I then stamped and copic colored the rabbit, the panda, and several accessories. Once colored I then die cut them out with the matching dies.
I did however stamp the glasses in Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral then die cut it out as well. I also stamped two banners and sentiments inside from the Yippee Combo Set, then die cut them out with the matching dies. I finished the cards by adhering the panels to two A2 top-folding card bases, then adhering the critters and sentiments with foam tape, then the accessories with glue and lastly I added googly eyes to the panda.
Next up is the is gorgeous XOXO Combo Set. I love this set, the beautiful solid flowers and leaves are perfect for so many techniques!
For today’s cards I decided to play with a technique that I used once before with the Beautiful Wings Stamp to create a DIY panel die with your stamped diecuts, you can check out that video here.
I love creating these panels, I think they are so lacy and pretty and it is such a great way to stretch your stamps and dies.
I will have a process video on these cards up tomorrow so be sure to stop by to check it out. 🙂
Next up is the adorable Animal Tags Combo Set. This brilliant set was designed by JJ Bolton and I think these cute tags could be used for so many things (lunch notes, book marks, valentines, etc).
I just got a new pack of rainbow pastel cardstock and I just couldn’t resist using it with these adorable tags.
First, I die cut the tags out of colored cardstock. I then stamped the faces with black ink for the frogs and bears. For the pandas, I stamped their faces on a different sheet of colored cardstock and then die cut around the face with the oval die that comes with the Animal Tags Die Set.
I then used the same oval die and die cut tummies for all my tags our of complimentary colored cardstock. Next, I die cut cheeks using various dies that cut tiny circles like the Mini Location Indicator Die, the Creative Bits Die Set, or the Floss Bobbins Die.
I then assembled the tag and then adhered the faces, tummies, and cheeks. Lastly, I added white gel pen accents and used a permanent marker to add eye lashes to some of the critters.
And last but not least is the pretty Lilac Dreams Combo, illustrated by Oana Befort.
Of course I had to try my hand at no line coloring with this beautiful image. Like before, I first stamped the image in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the image in with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished painting I die cut the image out with the matching die. I then die cut a maroon panel a couple of time with the new Stitched Rose Die to create a background.
I also stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Here For You Stamp Set and then trimmed it down to a strip. I finished the card by adhering the background panel onto an A2 top-folding card base, then adhered the girl with foam tape and the sentiment with liquid glue.
For my last set of cards, I did some paper piecing but with a slightly different spin. I stamped the image several times onto different colored cardstock in tone-on-tone inks.
I then fussy cut out different sections of the image from the different cardstocks. Once I had finished cutting I adhered all the layers together. And if this sounds confusing, don’t worry! I will have a video demonstrating the whole process soon. 🙂
After I glued the layers I then added the slight impression of a mouth and an eye with copic markers. Once the faces were done, I created backgrounds using the new Wave Textured Die and then added a border with the Stitched Layers Die with added craft foam for dimension. For these cards I also used the Here For You Stamp Set to create my sentiments and adhered them and the girls with foam tape onto the card.
