[Guest & Giveaway] Bear & Bird Sweetness by Kay Miller

Hello! Kay here with another guest post for Waffle Flower using the adorable Bear & Bird stamp set and matching dies. This set has the sweetest images and I love the flowers that are included!

I started off with a piece of Canson Bristol Board, and stamped the flower images with waterproof black ink. I watercolored everything with Distress Inks.

I stamped the bear, banner, sentiment, and flowers with waterproof ink again, watercolored those, and cut them out with the matching dies.

I adhered my watercolored background to a kraft card base with foam tape, then adhered the bear and sentiment with foam tape as well. I tucked the little bouquet of flowers underneath the slit in the bears hand.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! I'll be back in May with some more fun projects with Waffle Flower products!

Don't forget to leave a comment to this post by this Friday April 28 for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to http://waffle flower.com!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

[Guest] Hello Stampurr with Distressed Background by Kay Miller

Hello! It's Kay here and I’m super happy to be guesting with Waffle Flower Crafts for April and May! They have some really fun designs and I can’t wait to share my projects with you!

 

For my first card, I used an adorable stamp set called Hello Stampurr, along with the coordinatng dies.

To create my background, I used some painter's tape and placed a piece just slightly lower than the center line and blended some Blueprint Distress ink above the tape. I then speckled that with more of the same ink mixed with some water. After this dried, I blended some Picked Raspberry Distress ink along the bottom, and added some speckles of the same.

I stamped all of the images with black ink, colored them with Copic markers, then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I stamped the sentiment from Bear & Bird stamp set in black ink, then mounted my card front onto a top folded white card base.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! I look forward to sharing some more fun projects with Waffle Flower Crafts Products!

I'm so excited to be participating in Taheerah's Advent Calandar Extravaganza!! It is such a festive event with so many amazing inspirational projects, I'm so honored to be apart of it!! For today's card, I had a lot of fun the lovely Peace on Earth Stamp set and my colored pencils! img_2670 First, I mounted a sentiment from the Peace on Earth Stamp Set on my MISTI. I then masked the bird and swirly portions with cut pieces of a post-it note. Now that only the sentiment remained exposed I inked it up with my embossing ink, then removed the masks and stamped it in the center of an A7 card base made from black card stock. Next, I pouring white embossing powder over my sentiment and then heat set it. img_2671 Now that my sentiment was complete I repeatedly stamped the foliage and the berries in green and red pigment ink to create a ring or wreath around the sentiment. Once my wreath was completed I colored in all the foliage and berries with my Prismacolor colored pencils. After I had colored my wreath with my greens and reds, I highlighted portions of the wreath with my white colored pencil. I hope you enjoyed!! :) ~Channin I just love how Channin's coloring and the black cardstock make the images just pop off the paper, so vivid!
