00-2018-09-Blog-Hop-Badge

First up is the awesome We Blend Combo!! This fun set was illustrated by the incredibly talent Liz Mytinger!

I made a fun shaker card with this set, please check out the video below to get all the details!

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

You guys! I loved coloring the images from this set! The many of the images have large open areas allowing you to color beautiful gradations!

I can’t wait to make some more cards with this set!

Next up is the adorable Hocus Pocus Combo! This set was illustrated by the amazing Kamo!

Isn’t this witch adorable!! I copic colored the images from the Hocus Pocus Stamp Set and then die cut them with the matching dies. I then ink blended the background with Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides.

Next I die cut an A2 Black panel with a die from the Scenery Die Set and then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment in the lower half. I then adhered the black panel to the blended background and then colored the images. Lastly, I stamped the cobwebs at the top and added the spiders.

Next up is the Stitched Harvest Combo! This beyond cute set was illustrated by the super fun Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery!

I am such a fan of these cross stitch stamp sets! They make my stamping lovin heart so happy! For this simply sweet card I first stamped the pie in Distress Oxides; Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Antique Linen & Old Paper. Then die cut it with the Embroidery Hoops Die. I also used the same hoop die and die cut the frame repeatedly out of craft cardstock and then glued the layers together.

I then put two together and adhered them to a cream card base. Lastly I added a dollop of whipped cream with Ranger White Enamel Accents and then added some glitter.

Of course this stamper had to make one card with this set!

I stamped the pumpkins and leaves from the Stitched Harvest Set repeatedly on an A2 panel of cream cardstock with Distress Oxides (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, & Walnut Stain). I then die cut the panel with the Patched Layers Die Set to add a blanket stitched edge.

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment in Walnut Stain Distress Oxide onto kraft cardstock and added it to the card front.

Next is the festive Cookie Time Combo! This set was also illustrated by Kamo and it is seriously so much fun!!

I created a cheery Christmas scene by Distress Ink watercoloring several images from the Cookie Time Stamp Set and die cut them with the matching dies. I then created the background by stamping the bricks from the Cookie Time Stamp Set in Like a Pro Dye Ink on an A2 panel. I then ink blended the lower two thirds with Coffee Loves Milk Dye Ink and then stamped the woodgrain pattern with the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set.

Next, I added a panel of striped pattern paper with foam tape and then adhered the images. To finish the card I cut a frame using a die from the Rainbow Panel Die Set from white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next up is the sweet Sweet Treats Combo, illustrated by Big Bear and Bird!

First I stamped and copic colored several images from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set and then cut them out with the matching dies. I then ink blended a background half with with Tickled Pink Dye Ink and the other half with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide.

I then created a table cloth with the Lacy Layers 5×7 Die from whit cardstock. I then adhered it to the panel with foam tape and then adhered all the images with liquid glue.

And last but not least is the Gingerbread House Die! This die was also illustrated by Kamo.

I created the house using white, red, glitter and kraft cardstock. I then colored several elements with copics and then added Stickles Crystal Glitter on top.

I then adhered it to the front of an envelope created with the Love Notes Die.

I then stamped a sentiment from the A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set in red on the front.

And I that’s all folks!😆

Waffle Flower Crafts August Release

Waffle Flower Crafts August Release

Hello all and thanks for joining us in Waffle Flower’s August Release Blog Hop!! This is such an incredible release with so many innovative and beautiful products and I have a lot of cards to share so let’s dive right in!!

First up is these two cards that I created with the new Color Swatches Stamp Set!

Not only did I use this set to create the backgrounds but I also used it to create a glazing chart which helped me pick a wonderful Distress Ink palette! To see the whole process please check out the video below.

Glazing Chart with Distress Inks & 2 Cards

Watch below or on my YouTube Channel.

Next up is a couple of cards I created with the new Adventures Stamp Set!

This is such a fun stamp set! Kamo’s illustrations are so enchanting and gestural and the intentionally leafless tree allows you to use whatever coloring technique of your choice to adorn it!

For this card I chose to use ink smooshing with Distress Inks to create the leaves. You can check out the video tutorial over at Simon Says Stamp!

Next up is an autumn version of this card with the Adventures Stamp Set.

For this card I used a really fun spray bottle technique to create the leaves.

I will have a video coming soon on this technique, so stay tuned! 😉

Last up is a group of cards I created with the new Lacy Flower XL Die and a few simple watercolor techniques! I will only briefly describe how I created these cards because I will also have a tutorial video

For these two cards I created two simple graded washes using my Gansai Tambi watercolors. I used only a single color for each card.

I used one graded wash as a background for the card on the left but die cut the second wash with the Lacy Flower XL Die for the card on the right.

The sentiments are from the Adventures Stamp Set.

For this card I created a graded wash with 2 colors. I then adhered a white Lacy Flower onto the wash and then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Adventures Stamp Set.

For these last two cards I played with a couple wet on wet techniques and created 2 panels.

I die cut one with the Lacy Flower XL Die and adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. For the second panel, I die cut the Lacy Flower XL Die from mirrored gold and adhered it to the side of the panel.

I trimmed off the excess and then glued the remaining portions to the panel and trimmed again. I then finished the card with a gold embossed sentiment on black cardstock.

[Video] Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water Background

[Video] Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water Background

Hello all! We had a terrible monsoon storm and our internet was down for several days. So now I’m playing catch up and posting a couple of videos (hopefully today) I created for Waffle Flower Crafts.

Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water Background

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

This was a very simple card to create. I’m still getting comfortable with alcohol inks but I really liked how this turned out! Plus I think it’s crazy you can get all this visual interest from just one ink color!

For all the details please head over to Waffle Flower Crafts blog. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!

Next up is the second that I created with the Deck the Halls Set.

I stamped several images from the Deck the Halls Stamp Set in VersaFine onto watercolor paper. I then colored the images in with Distress inks.

Once I had finished coloring the images I diecut them out with the matching dies. I then constructed my windowed card using the A2 Arch Window Die and the A2 Nested Domes Die.

I created the frosted window by sprinkling and heat setting white embossing powder and stamped and embossed the snowflakes from the Deck the Halls Set. I completed the card with a sentiment from the Stocking Stamp Set.

Next up is the Bouquet Builder 2 Set! I love this set illustrated by Helen Dardik. It’s perfect for coloring and painting!

I actually have a video for this card over at Simon Says Stamp’s Blog. So please head over there to check it out.

Next up is the Sketchbook Set! This sweet little set was also illustrated by Flora Waycott.

For my first card, I stamped the images in VersaFine onto Bristol paper and then colored them in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I did masked and stamped a second sketchbook to create a blank book.

I then diecut all the images out and adhered them onto a kraft panel cut with the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die Set. I completed the card with a sentiment from the Boutique Builder 2 Stamp Set.

For my second card, I masked and stamped 3 blank sketchbooks in VersaFine onto watercolor paper.

I then stamped the flowers from the Bouquet Builder 2 Stamp Set onto the pages of the books. I then colored them images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then cut the pages out with the matching dies.

I then scored all he books along the spine and then adhered one page from each book to the other books.

I then ink blended a background with Distress Oxides (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Candy Apple and Wilted Violet) onto an A2 panel of white cardstock cut with the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die. I then added some water spots, stamped my sentiment and adhered the sketchbook.

And last but not least is the fun Rainbow Cheers Combo! This adorable Set was illustrated by Kamo!

For this card, I stamped and copic colored the cat and then die cut him out with the matching dies. I also foiled his sunglasses with Iridescent Decofoil. I then created an alcohol inked background for him to float in with Yupo paper and Sailboat Blue alcohol ink.

I then stamped a sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and adhered it and the cat to the to the alcohol inked background.

For my final card, I also started by stamping and copic coloring the cat from the Cheers Stamp set. I then created a foiled background with Decofoil Transfer Gel and Iridescent foil.

Next, I diecut a rainbow using the Rainbow Die (included in the Rainbow Cheers Combo) from white cardstock and then colored it in with my copics.

[Video] Layering Dye Ink with Pattern Stamping

Hello all! I’m over at Waffle Flower Crafts with a new video. In today’s video I combine one of my favorite stamping techniques, layering dye ink with pattern stamp. These are very simple techniques but combine together create endless possibilities!

IMG_8513

I just love to play with pattern and color and could easily make hundreds of cards with a good pattern set, like the Arrowhead stamp set and a bunch of dye inks! In today’s video I demo just two cards but like I mentioned earlier the possibilities are truly endless!
