Hello everyone!! It’s time for Waffle Flower’s December Release!! I have several projects to share so let’s just jump right in!!
This release is full of some incredible valentine gems!! And my first card features some of that valentine’s goodness by combing the Sweet Mailbox and the Sending Love Combo! I will also have a tutorial video for this card coming Wednesday, December 11th.
First, I die cut the mailbox and the door detail from gray cardstock using the Mailbox Die. I then Assembled the mailbox. Next, I die cut several envelopes out of pink and white cardstock. I then inlaid the postage stamps and address negatives from all envelopes, mixing the colors to have variety and using micropore tape to hold everything in place.
Next, I stamped and copic colored some images from the Sending Love Stamp Set. Once the images were colored I then die cut them out with the matching dies. I then created the mailbox stand by stamping three 0.75″ x 5.5″ stripes of white cardstock with the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set in Versamark ink and then heat embossing in white. Next, I ink blended an A2 panel of white Cardstock with New Fish In Pond Dye Ink and a mask I created with contact paper and the Scenery Die.
I then stamped my sentiment onto the mailbox in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Next, I adhered the panel to an A2 top-folding card base turned on its side. I then constructed the stand and trimmed of any over hang from the stripes. Next, I finished the card by adhering the mailbox, envelopes and mouse.
Next up is a card featuring the beautiful Bouquet Builder 6 Combo Set. I decided to do some no-line watercoloring with these pretty flowers. I will also have a video on this card coming Friday, December 13th.
For this card first stamped several Bouquet Builder 6 Stamp Set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the florals in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once colored, I die cut all the images out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blended a background with distress oxides (Old Paper, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, and Black Soot) on an A2 panel of white cardstock.
When I finished my background, I then a gold heat embossed sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments Stamp Set. I then adhered the background onto and A2 top-folding card base and then adhered the flowers with foam squares. I then finished the card by adhering some iridescent sequins.
My next card features the incredible Outline Love Combo Set!! I love love LOVE this set!! It is so versatile and so much fun to play with!! I decided to combined it with some fun rainbow alcohol ink backgrounds. I will have a video on this how I created these cards coming Wednesday, December 18th.
First, I created the backgrounds with several shades of alcohol inks and a paint brush on Yupo paper.
I tried several different directions and even different strokes to get a variety of rainbow backgrounds.
Once I finished the backgrounds I then die cut the Outline Love Word Die three times out of white cardstock. I then adhered all of the outline love die cuts together.
For my other version of the “love”, I simply adhered two of the negatives layers together for dimension. I then adhered those letters to the underside of a vellum “love” die cut using the Outline Love Matching Die. I then finished by the last layer of “love” negatives to the top of the vellum.
I then stamped and white heat embossed my sentiment onto the alcohol ink backgrounds, being careful not to warp the paper. Once I had finished, adhered the background onto an A2 top-folding card base and then finished the card by adhering “love”.
And last is a card featuring the Secret Admirer Combo Set! I chose to create a slimline card and combined this fun set with some wired thread to add some dimension and texture! I will also have a video for this card coming Friday, December 20th.
For this card, I first created the slimline card base (8.5″ x 7″, score at 3.5″) out of red cardstock. I then ink blended on the card front with Barn Door and Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. Next I splatter some white Gansai Tambi paint towards the center of the card front. I then die cut a heart using the Nesting Heart Dies. I then ink blended over the heart with Waffle Flower’s Tickled Pink and Color Box’s Rose pigment ink to create a gradation.
I then adhered the heart to the card front. Next, I stamped and copic colored some images from the Secret Admirer Stamp Set. Once, they were colored I then cut them out with the matching dies. I then coiled up some wired silver thread to resemble a telephone cord. In middle of the thread, I stopped coiling and instead bent the thread to form the word “love”. I then added foam tape to the images and then used the images and a few drops of glue to hold the thread in place. Lastly, I finished the card with some heart gems!
And that’s it!! I hope you enjoyed my projects! Thank you so much for stopping by!!
