Waffle Flower Crafts Seven Favorites Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today we are celebrating Waffle Flower Crafts 7th Anniversary!! Wahoo, congratulations Waffle Flower!! To celebrate Waffle Flower is hosting a blog hop a huge GIVEAWAY!!

In the hop each designer will share 7 of their favorite Waffle Flower Crafts Products along with a ton of inspiration.

Alrighty let’s dive right on in shall we!! My first favorite is the beautiful Jars of Happiness Combo (stamp set & matching dies) illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux.

I think this set is perfect for slimline cards, which is exactly what I created. I colored these beautiful jars with in a soft rainbow colors, used the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set to create a table top, and finished the card with sentiment from the Jars Sentiment Stamp Set.

My next favorite is the We Herd Combo illustrated by Liz Mytinger. This adorable set is so handy for birthday cards and I have two of those to share!

I used the cute herd of rabbits to create this pull tab birthday card! The bushes were created with the Scenery Die, the frame with the Picture Frames Die, the Nesting Speech Bubbles for the sentiment, and I used the super handy Pull Tabs Die to create the pull tab. I also created a video for this card.

For this card I used the herd of sheep from the We Herd Set and created a fun interactive card with a little surprise!

I used the Box Card Die to create the gift and the 3D Bow die for the bow. I also created a video for this card.

My next favorite is the Big Dots Die designed by JJ Bolton! I had so much fun playing with this panel die! I created stacked rainbow panels with it, rainbow shaker cards, and inverted inlaid cards using patterned paper!

For this two cards, card combined the Big Dots Die with colored cardstock to create this shaker card and I used the leftovers to create the stacked rainbow panel!

For my next pair of cards, I combined the Big Dots Die with JJ’s Rainbow Paper Pad to have some pattern fun!

The next favorite product is super duper sweet Be A Cat Die. This die was based off an illustration by Big Bear and Bird and this die is seriously the cutest!

I used the die and ink blending to create an orange tabby cat. I also used the Simple Plaids Stamp Set to create a background and the Jars Sentiment Stamp Set for my sentiment. You can check out the whole process here.

My next product is the new and innovated Stencil-n-Stamp: Spring Blooms Set! I have had a lot of fun experimenting with different color combos with set and have plans to make a video using a muted palette next!

For these cards I played with light and bright colors with the addition of black for a strong contrast. The sentiments are from the Crocus Stamp Set and the Sending Love Stamp Set and I used Unicorn Lines Paper Pad for the backgrounds. I created the top card in a FB LIVE you can check out the replay here.

For these two cards I played with retro color palettes and I am so pleased with how they turned out! The sentiment for these cards is from the Classic Sentiments Stamp Set. I created these during an IG LIVE you can check out the replay here.

Next up is the Stitchable Hearts Die! I love the idea of incorporating stitching into my card making and these dies make it so easy and pretty!!

I kept these cards CAS so the stitching would really shine! I also use variegated floss and I just loved watching the hearts change color while I stitched them up! You can also watch the magic by checking out the video below.

My very last product is definitely one of my favorites and I have used it time and time again during many IG LIVES for Waffle Flower and this product is the Skinny Stripes Die.

For my first card with the skinny stripes, I copic colored the stripes and then paired with the Happy Birthday Sentiments Combo and a panel of pattern paper from the Special Delivery Paper Pad. You can check out the IG LIVE replay here.

For my next card I used the dies to die cut a bunch of stripes out of my scraps of colored cardstock and then used them to build a gorgeous rainbow background. I also created a border with the Spring Leave Die set and the sentiment is created using the Love Letter Combo. You can check out the replay of this lG LIVE here.

And my last two cards are also rainbow! (I may have a problem😂) For these cards however I used the bridge card design that I learned from Jennifer McGuire!! The sentiment is created with the Oversized Hello combo. You can check out the IG LIVE replay here.
