Hello everyone and welcome to day 8 of Waffle Flower’s 3 year Anniversary Celebration! I am so excited to share with you all today’s video! Today we are very fortunate to be collaborating with the wonderful Alexandra Renke and I use several of her products to create a two fun cards! I hope you enjoy!

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.





Card 1

First, I trimmed down the Watercolor Rose Design Paper to 5 1/8” square panel. I then embossed it with the Hearts embossing folder. Next, I stamped several images from the Sweets Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored all the images with Marvy Le Plume Fine Brush markers. I then diecut the images with the Sweets matching dies.



Next, I arranged the floral images in a heart frame and then glued them onto the embossed panel. I then adhered the remaining images with foam tape and then adhered the panel onto a 5.25 square cardbase. Next, I stamped and white embossed a sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock. I then adhered the sentiment to the card using foam tape.



Card 2

For this card I started by trimming down the Wood Structure - Light Gray Design Paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I then embossed the panel using the Falling Stars embossing folder. Next, I ink blended Memento Tuxedo Black Ink over the raised stars. I then stamped “Hey. Good Luck” and some of the stars from the Big Day Stamp Set in Hero Arts Soft Granite using my MISTI.



Then I slide my panel down and to the left and then stamped it all again but this time in Versafine Onyx Black to create a dimensional look. Lastly, I adhered my panel down onto a black A2 card base and then added some additional accents to the letters and stars with a white gel pen.

I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to comment for your chance to win a ton of amazing high quality design paper as well as the Heart within the Center and the Falling Stars embossing folders by Alexandra Renke. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 3 of Waffle Flower's Year 3 Celebration!

We've invited 9 friendly companies in the industry to join us! We use and love their products and want to share them with you! We will feature one company per day in a video till May 18 with lots of prizes to win!

Today's video is created for you by our design team member Katie Gehring!

Hello Waffle Flower friends,

Katie Gehring here. Today, in honor of Waffle Flower Craft’s third birthday celebration, I have a video to share with you showing how I made a special interactive card featuring Chibi Lights.

My video shows step by step how I built the circuit and includes several tips for creating a successful connection. I hope you’ll take a peek and be inspired to feature some electrical engineering on your next card project!


To start, I stamped and heat embossed the images from the Eat Cake stamp set with silver embossing powder. I also added the cake image from the Big Day stamp set before adding watercolor with Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Shaded Lilac, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, and Shabby Shutters).

I pierced holes where the candle flames would be on the stamped and watercolored panel to allow the light to shine through; then I built the light circuit on my note card base. I positioned the battery for the circuit or the "press point” directly below the heart. When the recipient presses on the heart image, the candles will light up!

Thanks for stopping by!
Katie
