Hello friends!! Today we are celebrated Christmas in July with Waffle Flower Crafts July Release!! This release is so adorable!! So many cute sets that are sure to get you into the holiday spirit even in the middle of summer!!
My first card features the Happy Gnomes Combo Set illustrated by the talent Liz Mytinger! I will have a video for this card this Wednesday, July 6th.
To create this card I first stamped several images from the Happy Gnome Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I finished coloring in the images, I then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I created a simple mask by fussy cutting a slope out of contact paper.
I then ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding card base with the mask and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to create the look of snow slopes. Next, I thoroughly dried my card front and then stamped and sliver heat embossed a sentiment from the Classic Holiday Sentiments Stamp Set. I then finished the card by adhering all the images with liquid glue.
My next card features the adorable Holly Bird Combo illustrated by Big Bear and Bird! A video for this card will be available July 11th.
To create this card I first stamped the image on Bristol paper in Versafine Onyx Black and then watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Next, I die cut the bird out with the matching die. I then die cut a sheet of pattern paper from the Unicorn Half-Half Lines paper pad with the new Nesting Hexagon Die Set to create a frame. I then used the same set of hexagon dies to die cut white craft foam twice to create two dimensional frames.
Next, I trimmed down another sheet of pattern paper from the Unicorn Half-Half Lines paper pad to create a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel and adhered it onto an A2 top-folding white card base. I then adhered the two craft foam frames, one on top of the other, onto the card front. I then adhered the bird inside and then added foam balls into the well of the shaker. Next, I die cut a piece of acetate with a hexagon die and then adhered the pattern paper frame on top and then adhered both onto the card front. I then finished the card with a white heat embossed sentiment stamped onto black cardstock.
My next card features the beautiful Poinsettia Combo Set illustrated by Karla Jodoin!
I first stamped and gold heat embossed several images from the Poinsettia Stamp Set on Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then die cut them out with the matching dies when I had finished. Next, I die cut the Oversized Peace Word Die three times out of white cardstock.
I then adhered all three on top of each other and then pressed the stack die cut into a Versamark pad and then heat embossed it in gold. I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sub-sentiment from the Oversized Peace Stamp Set onto an A2 panel made from maroon cardstock. Next, I adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding cardbase made from white cardstock and then finished the card by adhering the rest of my die cuts.
And my last card features the fun Fa-la-la Combo Set illustrated by Liz Mytinger!
For this card, I first stamped the sheep and the light post in Versafine Onyx Black onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blended an A2 panel of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. I then dried my panel throughly and then stamped and white heat embossed some snowflakes. Next, I stamped a sentiment (this set will be release in August) in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed in clear glittery embossing powder.
I then die cut the panel with the frame die from the Cozy Cabin Die set as well as blue craft foam and then adhered the two together. I then die cut three trees out of white cardstock using the a tree from the Cozy Cabin Die set and ink blended them with Peeled Paint and Lucky Clover Distress Ink. Next, I adhered the panel and dimensional frame onto the front of an A2 top-folding card base. I then adhered the trees and then finished the card by adhering the sheep and light post with foam squares.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards for this release!
