Hello everyone! Are you getting busier and busier for the holiday season? Waffle Flower had such an amazing feedback from you for our Fall collection released in October that we have been packing like crazy everyday for the last 1.5 month.

Five for Friday and a Cake Card Tutorial

Hello, everyone! It is Friday again! Five for Friday I’m sharing some cake inspiration today!   They look so good! Here is a card I was inspired to make! A Cake Card Tutorial The sentiment is a sneak peek to a new stamp set we are going to introduce in August. The cake was made from our Surface – Tag Die – Scallop Add-on. Diecut the rectangle label twice from pink paper and the scallop frame once from white paper. Layer the scallops on top of the labels to make the cake layers: Adhere the layers together and trim off the extra. The flower is made from our Rock My World Stamp Set and Die Set. Stamp the flowers on pink paper and die cut. Use a stylus and a mousepad to shape the flowers into little cups. Adhere the two flowers together with foam adhesive and you will get a great dimensional […]

Five for Friday & A Poppy Pod Bouquet Card

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I drew the flower pod in our Flower Circles Stamp Set with a poppy pod in mind. It makes me smile every time I see it in use. This week’s Five for Friday, I’m sharing some love for poppy pods. Five for Friday For a rustic wedding Fresh with coral Simple & Elegant Dried & Dyed In Print I like how Michelle describes the poppy pods: they are “like little jewels of the garden”. Poppy Pod Bouquet Card I was so inspired by the poppy pod bouquet photo that I made this card: How-tos Here is how to create this look: 1. Stamp 5 pods on some scrap piece of white cardstock, using Peeled Paint distress ink. 2. Cut-out closely following the stamp. Don’t worry if you have white edges, the inking will cover them all up. Color the bottom half with Evergreen Bough distress ink. 3. Color […]

[The Missing Manual for Card Making] Stretch A Sketch

This post is part 1 of 1 for The Missing Manual for Card Making

This post is part 1 of 1 for The Missing Manual for Card MakingHello everyone! Today I’m sharing a post for a series of postings I’ve wanted to do for a while. I am one of those people who reads every word in a user manual and hopes there is one for everything, haha! While I am still learning new things everyday, I think I should go ahead and document what I’ve learned. I will share simple bite-size tips in the hope that they will be helpful to someone else too. When I first stumbled across card sketches, I felt like that I found a piece of that missing manual for card making. A sketch takes out the majority of the “guess work”. I believe limitation is what stimulates creativity! The example I’m using today is the sketch for our current Waffle Flower Challenge. It was based on the card on the right. We can follow a sketch closely or give it a little twist to make our card standout. Stretch a […]

Take Me to Spring Gift Bags + Punch Board Giveaway

Hello everyone! I started to notice that the weather is getting warmer and more people are wearing shorts and flip-flops around here in Arizona. I hope that today’s project can bring a little sunshine to you if it is still cold there. Take Me to Spring Gift Bags Tips & Tricks Since the “legendary” Envelope Punch Board, We R Memory Keepers has expanded the punch board family to five. I used Gift Bag punch board for today’s project. All paper are from Pebbles Garden Party collection. There are many combinations of paper sizes to make a variety of bags. I would like to share what I did and what I learned. Butterfly Bag Paper: 4″Hx12″W; Bag: 3-5/8″W x 2-11/16″H x 2″D I like that it looks like a shopping bag and is big enough for gift cards and small treats!

Happy Hearts Wall Decoration for Valentine’s Day (Cloud Pattern in PDF and .studio)

Hello everyone! I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day decoration on Pebbles Blog today and thought it would be fun to share more step photos and a free pattern here. I picked a few of my favorite patterns from Pebbles Yours Truly collection and die cut a bunch hearts in various sizes. I used a set of nesting dies but you can also hand drew your own. I hand drew a cloud on the grid paper to be my base panel. I’ve made it into a pattern that you can download at the end of this post. I arranged the hearts in a random pattern and adhered them together with some foam adhesive. I also used some printed chipboard shapes for more visual interest. Finished!
