Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I stamped the large bouquet from the Bouquet Builder 3 Stamp set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto an A2 panel of Bristol paper. I then watercolored the bouquet in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished coloring the image I dry embossed around it with the matching die.

Next, I trimmed my panel down 1/8″ on all sides then adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Bouquet Builder 3 Stamp set onto black cardstock. Next, I trimmed my sentiment and then added it to my card front. Lastly, I finished my card by adhering some beautiful crystals around the bouquet with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Glazing and Wave Texture Die

Glazing and Wave Texture Die

Hello friends! I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday!! Today’s video involves one of my favorite watercoloring techniques, glazing!

Glazing and Wave Texture Die

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I die cut two A2 panels of watercolor paper with the Wave Texture Die. I then used Taylored Expressions Liquid Watercolor to paint stripes of color following along some of the stitched lines created by the Wave Textured Die.

To get the beautiful layered look, I made sure to allow each painted stripe to dry completely before I overlapped it with a new color.

Once my backgrounds were finished I stamped and copic colored images from the Cheers and Be Her stamp sets then die cut them out with the matching dies.

For the unicorn card I created a cloud using the Scenery Die and then stamped a sentiment from the Rainbows Stamp set on both cards.

I finished the cards by adhering the panels onto two A2 card bases and adding the critters and cloud with foam tape.

Be Him Repeat Stamping Backgrounds

Be Him Repeat Stamping Backgrounds

Hello friends! In today’s video I create a patterned background by repeatedly stamping some of the accessories from the Be Him Combo Set.

Be Him Repeat Stamping Backgrounds

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

I think this is a great way to use those smaller stamps that come in your sets! You are basically creating your own custom patterned paper that perfectly matches your stamped images.

First, I hand stamped the background with either the mustache or bow tie stamp from the Be Him Stamp Set in Simon Says Intense Black Ink, a copic marker safe ink, on either teal or coral A2 panels. I then copic colored the bow tie in a tone-on-tone fashion. Next, I added a stitched border to the panels with the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set.

I then stamped the rabbit and the panda and of their several accessories in SSS Intense Black onto white cardstock and then copic colored the images in. I also stamped the glasses from the Be Him set in Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide and sentiments from the Yippee Stamp Set onto white cardstock. I then die cut all the images out with the matching dies.

WFC201903-271232 Be HIm-Channin 1C

Lastly I assembled my cards by adhering the panels onto 2 A2 top-folding card bases. Then adhering the critters, sentiments, and top hat with foam tape and the rest of the accessories with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive. I finished the panda by adhering a couple of googly eyes onto his glasses.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and video! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Layered Rainbow Diecuts

Layered Rainbow Diecuts

Hello friends! I have a new video! Today I create a fun rainbow by layering circle die cuts  cut with Waffle Flower’s Nesting Circles 1 Die out of an array of colored cardstocks.

Layered Rainbow Diecuts

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

Today’s technique is a great way to make use of some of those paper scraps that we just can’t seem to throw away!

WFC20190309_LayeredRainbowDiecuts_Thumbnail_Channin_2

The best part is, this technique is super versatile. I arranged my layered circles in a heart and in a line, but you could easily arrange these die cuts in numerous other ways. In fact, I’d like to make another card in which I make sort of a “check” shape with the circles.

WFC20190309_LayeredRainbowDiecuts_Thumbnail_Channin_3

You can also try different dies! Possibly squares, hearts, or stars and they don’t even have to come from a nesting set, because you only need one! Can you tell I want to play with this some more! 🙂

Panels Made From Stamped Diecuts

Hello Friends! In today’s video I demonstrate a technique that is one of my absolute favorite ways to stretch your floral stamps and dies!

Stamped Diecuts Panels

I used it before to create lacy trifold cards with Waffle Flower’s Pretty Wings Stamp Set, you can check that video out here.

Today I change it up a little and create custom openings in my stamped diecut panels for my sentiment.

WFC201903-271231 XOXO-Channin 1B

I love that the openings could be whatever shape you want! I chose a simple circle and a heart but I think a diamond or an oval would be beautiful too!

WFC201903-271231 XOXO-Channin 1D

You can even create an opening for a critter or a person, really the possibilities are endless!!

Waffle Flower Crafts March Release

Hello all! It’s time for Waffle Flower Crafts March release and blog hop! Yay!!

March 2019 BLog Badge

I have several projects that I’m so excited to share so let’s get started!

Let’s start with one of my favorites the Bouquet Builder 3 Combo Set, illustrated by Karla Jodoin!

For this gorgeous set I decided to do some no-line coloring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

WFC201903-271230 Bouquet Builder 3-Channin 1A

I first stamped the bouquet in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paperand then watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I was finished coloring the bouquet I then dry embossed it with matching die.

WFC201903-271230 Bouquet Builder 3-Channin 1B

To completed the card, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and then trimmed down to two strips. I then adhered the stripes with foam tape and added crystal accents.

Next up is the Be Him Combo Set illustrated by Big Bear & Bird. I loved the previously released Be Her Set and this fun set is just as cute but perfect for creating more masculine cards.

WFC201903-271232 Be HIm-Channin 1A

For these cards, I first repeatedly stamped a background using one of the accessories from the Be Him Stamp Set in black onto an A2 panel of colored cardstock. I colored the bows on the coral panel with a coral copic marker.

WFC201903-271232 Be HIm-Channin 1B

After I finished the backgrounds I die cut the panels with the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die Set. I then stamped and copic colored the rabbit, the panda, and several accessories. Once colored I then die cut them out with the matching dies.

WFC201903-271232 Be HIm-Channin 1C

I did however stamp the glasses in Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral then die cut it out as well. I also stamped two banners and sentiments inside from the Yippee Combo Set, then die cut them out with the matching dies. I finished the cards by adhering the panels to two A2 top-folding card bases, then adhering the critters and sentiments with foam tape, then the accessories with glue and lastly I added googly eyes to the panda.

Next up is the is gorgeous XOXO Combo Set. I love this set, the beautiful solid flowers and leaves are perfect for so many techniques!

WFC201903-271231 XOXO-Channin 1A

For today’s cards I decided to play with a technique that I used once before with the Beautiful Wings Stamp to create a DIY panel die with your stamped diecuts, you can check out that video here.

WFC201903-271231 XOXO-Channin 1B

I love creating these panels, I think they are so lacy and pretty and it is such a great way to stretch your stamps and dies.

WFC201903-271231 XOXO-Channin 1D

I will have a process video on these cards up tomorrow so be sure to stop by to check it out. 🙂

Next up is the adorable Animal Tags Combo Set. This brilliant set was designed by JJ Bolton and I think these cute tags could be used for so many things (lunch notes, book marks, valentines, etc).

I just got a new pack of rainbow pastel cardstock and I just couldn’t resist using it with these adorable tags.

WFC201903-271237 Animal Tags-Channin 1A

First, I die cut the tags out of colored cardstock. I then stamped the faces with black ink for the frogs and bears. For the pandas, I stamped their faces on a different sheet of colored cardstock and then die cut around the face with the oval die that comes with the Animal Tags Die Set.

WFC201903-271237 Animal Tags-Channin 1B

I then used the same oval die and die cut tummies for all my tags our of complimentary colored cardstock. Next, I die cut cheeks using various dies that cut tiny circles like the Mini Location Indicator Die, the Creative Bits Die Set, or the Floss Bobbins Die.

WFC201903-271237 Animal Tags-Channin 1C

I then assembled the tag and then adhered the faces, tummies, and cheeks. Lastly, I added white gel pen accents and used a permanent marker to add eye lashes to some of the critters.

And last but not least is the pretty Lilac Dreams Combo, illustrated by Oana Befort.

Of course I had to try my hand at no line coloring with this beautiful image. Like before, I first stamped the image in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the image in with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished painting I die cut the image out with the matching die. I then die cut a maroon panel a couple of time with the new Stitched Rose Die to create a background.

IMG_1259

I also stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Here For You Stamp Set and then trimmed it down to a strip. I finished the card by adhering the background panel onto an A2 top-folding card base, then adhered the girl with foam tape and the sentiment with liquid glue.

WFC201903-271229 Lilac Dreams-Channin 2A

For my last set of cards, I did some paper piecing but with a slightly different spin. I stamped the image several times onto different colored cardstock in tone-on-tone inks.

WFC201903-271229 Lilac Dreams-Channin 2B

I then fussy cut out different sections of the image from the different cardstocks. Once I had finished cutting I adhered all the layers together. And if this sounds confusing, don’t worry! I will have a video demonstrating the whole process soon. 🙂

WFC201903-271229 Lilac Dreams-Channin 2C

After I glued the layers I then added the slight impression of a mouth and an eye with copic markers. Once the faces were done, I created backgrounds using the new Wave Textured Die and then added a border with the Stitched Layers Die with added craft foam for dimension. For these cards I also used the Here For You Stamp Set to create my sentiments and adhered them and the girls with foam tape onto the card.

Little Fairies Terrarium Card

Hello friends! I have a new card video to share!

Little Fairies Terrarium Card

Watch below or on my Youtube channel.

 

IMG_0878

I stamped several images from the Little Fairies Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images with Distress Inks. Once colored I die cut the images out with the matching dies. I then die cut a dome using the A2 Nested Domes Die Set out of craft foam and white cardstock. I then adhered the foam and cardstock domed frame together and then ink blended a background on the dome negative with distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon).

IMG_0876

Next, I die cut grass using the Chunky Grass Die and then ink blended with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Next, I trimmed the grass to fit inside the dome and then stamped the sentiment and then constructed the dome. Next, I filled the scene with the colored images. I then die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Diamond Texture Die adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. I then finished the card by adhering the dome and then adding sparkle with Stickles and iridescent sequins.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
