[Video] Christmas Cards by Yana Smakula

Hello everyone! We have another guest today! I first found Yana’s work in a card magazine about two years ago. I was playing with paper layering at that time and found her work interesting and are different every time. Then she joined a design team I was on and I started to get wowed by her stamped cards. Yana has a video for us today! You can find more of Yana’s videos on her Youtube Channel here and her blog here! We love that she just plays and explores. Thanks Yana, for generously letting us upload your video to Waffle Flower Crafts Youtube Channel! [Video] Christmas Cards by Yana Smakula Hi everyone!

Build a Scene with Stamps & Patterned Paper

This post is part 1 of 8 for Inspiration Week: Freckled Fawn + Waffle FlowerHello 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 […]
