Hello everyone! Welcome to day 1 of a week long inspiration brought to you by Freckled Fawn and Waffle Flower Crafts! We have simplified the blog hop to two stops – our blog here and the blog of Freckled Fawn. Stop by both of our blogs for inspiration and prizes! We have our very talented design team member: Lorena Cantó here today! Hi everyone! Welcome to the first day of the Freckled Fawn & Waffle Flower Crafts Blog Hop Week! It’s Lorena here and I’ll be sharing two projects using stamps and dies from the August Waffle Flower Crafts release combined with some lovely goodies from Freckled Fawn. Let’s get started! First, I have a tag and a little tutorial to make a speech bubble from the Santa beard die in Surface – Tag Die – Santa Add on. I love finding alternate uses for dies!Here’s the how-to:1.

Hello everyone! Just a kind reminder that we are taking some time off this week. All orders placed between now and Spetember 2 will start shipping on September 3. I made today’s card for Waffle Flower Challenge – Build A Scene! I discovered cardmaking when I was looking for ways to use the pretty patterned paper I hoarded collected. I love mixing and matching colors! How-tos 1. Punch a square and die cut a mountain outline from patterned paper. 2. Use your stamps to help you virtualize the scene. 3. Use watermark ink and white embossing powder to heat emboss the moon and stars on dark paper. 4. Adhere the pieces together. 5. Trim to size. 6. Stamp sentiment. 7. Trim more patterned paper to size and adhere to card. 8. Use embellishments to finish the card. Starting next Monday September 1, we are having a week long blog hop with Freckled Fawn. Our […]
Hello everyone! We have another guest today! I get giddy every time I receive a blog update from Laurie in my inbox. I love her clean and graphic style. The way she pulls things together always inspires me. Like the card she made for Curtain Call Challenge here (as shown above), she used a qtip and the ink colors to make some brush strokes and then topped it with vellum! Such a beautiful result! While you are at her blog, don’t forget to check out the Card Hanger Dies Laurie designed! Now, let’s get to her fun shaker card for today! Friendship Star Shaker Card HI there Waffleflower friends! I am thrilled to be stopping by today to share a shaker card I made up using Nina’s gorgeous new stamps! Today I am using the new set called Starry Night and the Tiny Star Die to make a fun shaker card. First […]
Hello everyone! The Waffle Flower team, aka my family, is off to have some quality bonding time! We have caught up with shipping before we leave and our normal shipping schedule will resume on September 3. While we are away, we have invited more friends to help us cover the blog! Today’s guest is Donna Mikasa. Watercolored Friendship Card Donna heat embossed the stars and the sentiment from Starry Night Stamp Set and then created a galaxy look using watercolor. We love the silver glittery stars cut with our Tiny Star Die. Fun, right? Thank you for stopping in! Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone! Have you noticed that Christmas cards are starting to pop up everywhere? I’m back in the clean and graphic mood lately and wanted to share a card created with my favorite tree die from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers. The Dimensional Tree Die And here is my card. I layered two die cuts for some extra dimension. The white layers were actually left from my Christmas Gumball Tree project I’ve shared before. Is it Christmas yet? :) Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone! We have another guest today! One thing I love about JJ Bolton is that she is full of “surprises”! Her cards are created with fun techniques and clever uses of products, but there is usually something unexpected that makes me smile. On this card, that something is how JJ combined all four of our new sets together! I was all about critter stamps until JJ showed me what graphic stamps can do. I still collect cute images but my favorites are those ones that can be combined for endless possibilities. JJ’s product design reflects her creativity, do check them out! Now, take it away, JJ! Snowy Night Glittery Shaker Card Hi everyone! It’s JJ and I’m thrilled to be stopping in at Waffle Flower! I’m in love with all the new sets, and I put them all together to create this glittery shaker, snowy night Christmas card! (That’s a mouthful;) When I saw the winding river die of the […]
Hello everyone! We have another guest today! Chari Moss was one of my first cardmaker crushes. I’ve always loved her use of distress inks and her attention to details when it comes to building scenes. So when we have our first scene building set: Riverside, her name was the first one that came to my mind. You will find lots of clever uses of products in her post today! Take it away, Chari! Build a Scene Using Distress Inks Hi everyone, Chari here to share a project using some of the newest Waffle Flower stamps! I used the Riverside stamp set, the Riverside die set and Starry Night stamp set along with lots of distress inks. I used a rectangle die to cut a wide frame from kraft card stock. Then I stamped it using Toffee Crunch Memento ink which has a great tone on tone look on kraft card […]
