Hello crafty friends!! It’s time for another Waffle Flower Crafts monthly release and blog hop!! This is a really big release and I have a bunch of cards to share to let’s dive right in!!
First up is the absolutely adorable Happy Fall Combo Set illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux and the incredible Forestscape Panel Die designed by JJ Bolton.
First I stamped several images from the Happy Fall Stamp Set on Bristol paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then no-line watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished coloring the images in I die cut them with the matching dies. Next, I die cut the Forestscape Panel Die out of two A2 panels. However, I only partially die cut one of the panels with the Forestscape Panel Die to make the tree section. I then ink blended the ground and trees with distress inks (Rusty Hinge, Mowed Lawn & Pine Needles).
Next, I made cloud masks with contact paper and the Cloudscape Panel Die. I then used the masks with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to ink blend a sky onto an A2 panel. I then stamped a sentiment from the Fall Greetings Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black. Next, I adhered the extended tree section onto the sky A2 panel. I then adhered the other forestscape panel with foam tape. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering my diecuts with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive.
Next up is the super fun Go Girl Winter Die Set also designed by JJ Bolton! This wonderful set works perfectly with the many other Go Girl stamps and dies.
First I die cut my girl’s face, hair, and body using the Go Girl Summer Die Set out of patterned paper and colored cardstock. Next, I die cut the goggles, scarf, and earmuffs out of colored and holographic cardstock using the Go Girl Winter Die Set. I then adhered my girl together and then stamped her mouth using the Go Girl Stamp Set in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. Next, I die cut a polaroid frame using the Go Girl Winter Die Set and silver embossed a sentiment with the new Holiday Hugs Stamp Set. I then took the negative from the polaroid frame and die cut it with the Forestscape Panel Die.
I then ink blended the Forestscape diets with ink (WFC-New Fish In Pond, Distress Ink-Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers). Next, I adhered an A2 panel of patterned paper onto a A2 top-folding card base. I then die cut the polaroid again but this time out of craft foam. I then adhered acetate and the girl to the cardstock polaroid frame. Next, I adhered the foam frame onto the card front. I then adhered the forestscape background into the frame. I then filled the frame with snowflake confetti and sequins and then sealed up the shaker with cardstock frame.
Next up is the bold and graphic Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set designed by JJ Bolton! This set is great for techniques and of course I had to try some too!
I will have a video on these cards coming Wednesday, October 9th! First, I ink blended an A2 panel with several Distress Oxides (Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Peeled Paint). Next, dried the panel thoroughly and then I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I then stamped several of the leaves in Versamark Ink and then clear heat embossed them. Next, I ink lifted with a squished up damp chamois to create a lighter textured background. I then trimmed the panel down 1/16″ on all sides and then adhered the panel onto an A2 Kraft card base. I then finished the card with clear enamel dots from the WFC’s Clean and Clear pack.
Next up is the sweet Fall Greetings Stamp Set and matching die also illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux!
I will have a video on this card coming Wednesday, October 16th. First, I created the background using the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set. I first stamped the leaf shadows with WFC’s Coffee Loves Milk dye ink onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. Next, I stamped the colored leaves in several Distress Oxides (Red-Barn Door & Fired Brick, Yellow-Mustard Seed & Fossilized Amber, Orange-Spiced Marmalade & Ripe Persimmon, Green-Crushed Olive & Peeled Paint).
I then filled in the white space by making dots with a copic marker. Next, I stamped and copic colored the focal image and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then die cut a rectangle of vellum with the A2 Layers Die Set and then adhered the sentiment and image with foam tape. Next, I adhered the background panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then finished the card by adhering the vellum and image with liquid glue.
Next up is the innovative Holiday Hugs Combo Set designed by JJ Bolton!! This is such a fun and creative die and stamp set which creates the coolest cards that can essentially hug you back!!
I also have a video coming for these cards on Friday, October 18th. I first die cut 4 arms using the Holiday Hugs Die Set, a front and back for each arm. I then either stamped with the Oversized Merry Stamp Set and Pattern Play Stamp Set or dry embossed with the Lattice Panel Die on the arms and an A2 panel. I then adhered the front and back sides of the arms together. Next, I created a neck line using the Nesting Circle Die. I then trace the neckline onto the A2 panel and then cut out the excess. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Holiday Hugs Stamp Set either onto the panel or a strip of vellum. I then adhered my card by adhering the arms onto another A2 panel and then adhering the panel with a neckline onto top.
For the white card, I folded the vellum sentiment strip over the panel before I adhered it to the rest of the card. Next, I stamped and silver heat embossed some snowflakes from the Oversized Merry Stamp Set onto vellum and then fussy them out. I then I die cut mittens from felt and adhered them onto the paper mittens.
Added the fussy cut snowflakes onto the aqua mittens as well as onto onto the inside of the card to look like a brooch.
I created the buttons on the white card with white enamel dots and I die cut “hugs” and three hearts of white felt and adhered them onto the pink card.
And last but not least is a cute little Thankful Mouse Stamp Set also illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux.
I combined this sweet little guy with his counterpart from the Happy Fall Stamp Set and stamped them and a sentiment onto an A2 panel white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then copic colored the images. I then trimmed the panel down 1/16″ on all the sides and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from 110lb red cardstock.
I also used the Stamp Village Holiday Seals Stamp Set to create a matching seal for my envelop.
And that’s it!! I hope you enjoyed!
