Hello friends!! Today is release day at Waffle Flower Crafts and welcome to the May Release Blog Hop!!
This is a really cute release, with lots and lots of pretty sets and products!! And I have several cards and a video to share so let’s dive right in!
First up is the gorgeous Wild Roses Set illustrated by Oana Befort! This is such a gorgeous set and so much fun to color!! But for this first card and video I wanted to share with an idea that didn’t involve coloring.
Rainbow No-coloring Flowers
Watch below or on my YouTube channel.
First I ink blended an A2 panel of 110lb white cardstock with four distress inks (Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, & Salty Ocean). I then ombre stamped images from the Wild Roses Stamp Set onto the panel with my MISTI and the same distress inks.
I created a dimensional sentiment using a word die included in the new Cake Panel Die set. I first die cut it out of glittery white vinyl, then white craft foam and then stuck the two together. I then finished my card by adhering the panel and sentiment to an A2 top-folding card base and then lastly clear sequins with Morning Dew Crystal Drops.
For my second card with this set, I chose my trusty Tombow Dual Brush Pens and watercolored these beautiful blooms. First, I stamped several of the flowers and leaves in VersaFine Onyx Black onto an A2 panel of Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
To finish the card I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Go Girl Stamp Set onto a strip of black cardstock. I will have a process video for this card on my blog and YouTube channel on May 22nd.
Next, up is the awesome Go Girl Set designed by JJ Bolton!! I can’t tell you how much I adore this set!! I had so much fun playing the images and dies, felt like I was styling with paper dolls!!
For this card, first I stamped the head and shoulders of the three times in light colored inks on three skin tones shades of colored cardstock. I then stamped lips on each girl as well. Next, I die cut three different hair styles using the Go Girl matching dies out of different colored cardstocks. I then die cut the sunglasses out of white cardstock.
To create the foiled lens for the glasses, I first ran some white cardstock through my Xyron Sticker Maker and then adhered Summer Rainbow DecoFoil to the sticky side of the cardstock. Next, I diecut the now foiled pieces of cardstock with the sunglasses die 3 times and then popped out the lens and then put them into the white frames, using a piece of tape to hold them in place.
Next, I placed the hair and sunglasses over the stamped girls and then traced around the hair with a pencil. I then fussy cut around each girl. Next, to create the shirt for each girl, I first stamped stripes from the Go Girl Stamp Set onto different colored cardstocks, in corresponding shades of ink. I then die cut the striped sections with the blouse die from the Go Girl die set.
With the shirts done I had everything to put the girls together. Once the girls were all glued together, I then used my copics to add a slight shadow under the chin to visually separate the chin and neck a bit more. I then finished the A10 card by stamping sentiments on three InstaLove Frames then glueing the girls inside and then adding them onto the card front with craft foam support. I will have a process video for this card on my blog and YouTube channel on May 8th.
Next up is the Oyez Set illustrated by Kamo. This set London themed set is so much fun!
For this first card, I started by stamping and copic coloring some of the images from Oyez Stamp Set. I did make some slight changes to the images by adding feather and splitting one on the town crier’s hat, I also made a stripe down the middle of the double decker bus. After coloring the images I cut them out with the matching dies. I did have to fussy cut the town crier out because of my altercations.
I then created the background by ink blending distress inks (Blueprint Sketch & Chipped Sapphire) and oxides (Antique Linen & Tea Dye) onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. To create the shrubs, I first die cut some green cardstock with the Scenery Die and then ink blended with distress inks to add a gradation. The last element I created for the background was the frame with the 4th and 5th largest die from the A2 Layers Die set. I finished the card with a white heat embossed sentiment from the Oyez Stamp Set stamped onto vellum and die cut with the Speech Bubbles Die. I will have a process video for this card on my blog and YouTube channel on May 15th.
For my second card, I first stamped and watercolored images from the Oyez Stamp Set with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I then die cut those images out with the matching dies. I created the rainbow using the Rainbow Die and then colored the stripes with copic markers.
I created the background by creating masks out of contact paper with the Scenery Die. I first created the the shrubs by ink blending distress inks (Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn). Once I finish with the shrubs I then covered them with my second mask and then ink blended the gravel path with Tea Dye and the sky Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch. I then stamped the skyline using the Big Ben image and several of the non-building images (either flipped over or turned on its side) from the Oyez Stamp Set in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I then stamped the raindrops in Salty Ocean DI and then copic colored the drops in. I finished the card by adhering the rainbow and images, stamping a sentiment in the lower right corner, and adding score lines to frame the scene.
Next up is the Be Him Sentiments Stamp Set! This set compliments the previously released Be Him Stamp Set illustrated by Big Bear and Bird. I created three Father’s Day cards with these two sets.
First I created the backgrounds with a credit card swiping technique using distress inks. I will have a process video on these cards available on my blog and YouTube Channel on May 11th.
Once I finished the backgrounds I then stamped the three critters from the Be Him Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Bristol Paper.
I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I finished coloring the images I die cut them out with the matching dies. I then stamped and white heat embossed some fun sentiments to match the images onto black cardstock, and then trimmed them down to create strips.
I finished the cards by trimming the background panels down by a quarter inch and then adhering them onto A2 cardbases, then adding the images and sentiment strips.
And last but certainly not least is the fun and versatile Cake Panel Die! I of course couldn’t resist making a sparkly shaker card with these dies!
First I die cut the cake panel die out of white glitter cardstock and white craft foam. I then created the colored sections of frosting by lining up strips of colored cardstock behind the frosting areas of the cake panel die and then diecutting. I then popped the colored frosting sections in the glitter panel and held them in place with tape. Next, I die cut six candles out of white cardstock and then copic colored them.
I then die cut the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from some halographic cardstock. I then started assembly of the shaker card by adhering the cake panel to an A2 panel of acetate. I then adhered the craft foam cake panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from 110lb white cardstock. I then fill the wells of the craft foam panel with sequins and chunky glitter from Studio Katia. I then sealed the shaker up by adhering the craft foam to the acetate. I finished the card off by adhering the candles and sentiment to the top of the cake.
