Hello all and welcome to Waffle Flower Craft’s Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Yay!! This is a large and fabulous release and I have lots of cards to share so let’s drive right on in!!

I’m going to separate my cards by illustrator and I’ll start with the immensely talent and super kind (I got to meet her 😊) Helen Dardik! There are 4 gorgeous sets by Helen in this release, adding to her Enveloper series; Enveloper Coffee, Enveloper Hugs, Enveloper Me, & Enveloper Gentle.

I used the main image from the Enveloper Hugs Stamp Set and stamped it in Salty Ocean Distress Ink.

I then simply reactived the ink once it was stamped with water and a paint brush.

For this card I used the Enveloper Me Stamp Set mainly. I stamped the girl and enveloper from the Enveloper Me Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the card front. I then stamped flowers from the Enveloper Me & Enveloper Hugs stamp sets in a rainbow of Waffle Flower dye inks (My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said That, Chirp Chirp, Me Fish in Pond, Daydreaming, & Happy Go Lucky).

I finished up by stamping the girl again on a scrap of white cardstock then diecutting her out with the matching die and adhering her and a white embossed sentiment to the front.

For this sweet card I stamped a rainbow background with Waffle Flower dye ink (Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said That, Chirp Chirp, Me Fish in Pond, Daydreaming, Happy Go Lucky, & Safe Choice) with the Plaid Play Stamp Set. I then stamped the tiger and sentiment from the Enveloper Gentle Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black and die cut the tiger with the matching die and reattached him with foam tape.

Hello all!! Just popping in to share that I have a new video up over at Waffle Flower Crafts! In today’s video I create a new card with the scraps from last week’s technique video. I just can’t let rainbow scraps go to waste. 😂

B2CF4191-3058-4A05-B11B-46CC6353F35E

I also busted out my sequins for this card and went to town on the rainbow! I just love all the sparkle, this card has the kirakira effect built in. 😉

[VIDEO] Ink Smooshing with Embossed Resist

[VIDEO] Ink Smooshing with Embossed Resist

Hello! I’m over at Waffle Flower Crafts today with a new technique video. In today’s video I combine two techniques, ink smooshing and embossed resist, to create some leafy backgrounds.

A1686918-F9E1-4D06-B0B0-D24E332201DF

I really enjoyed the process of making these backgrounds because the leaves were practically invisible until I added the final layers of ink. It was so satisfying to add those layers and watch the leaves become more and more defined.

I hope you will enjoy the video and seeing the process too. Just head over to Waffle Flower to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
