[Guest & Giveaway] How to Stamp with Deco Foil by Hedgehog Hollow

Hi there! Thanks for joining me as a Waffle Flower guest blogger! I usually blog over at Hedgehog Hollow and regular visitors will know my love of all things from Waffle Flower!

Today I have a great idea for stamping with foil using both the ‘layering marble set’ and the stunning ‘heatwave’ dress. I can also imagine this working so well with the ‘Pretty Wings’ set on those intricate wing details. 

Now of course you want to create your own and we have a full tutorial video for you…

 

Wasn’t that super simple but so effective? I love the reflections on the dress, I can imagine it hanging in a couture window, look how they catch my photography lights…

Plus those foil accents on the marble add the same shimmer I get from my kitchen countertops, I wish I could recreate this background in the kitchen!

This card is so easy, everyone thinks foiling is such a hard process but look how many supplies I used, here’s another view of that lovely lustre…

The Waffle Flower inks are so nice to work with, they stamp perfectly with photopolymers and give such a true color with not too much translucency, I hope we get some more colors soon! Here’s a complete supply list to recreate your own version of this card…

[Guest & Giveaway] Sweet Shaker Card by Erika 'Scrappika'

Hello everyone, it's Erika here! I'm so happy to be guest designer for Waffle Flower Crafts today. For this blog post I created a sweet shaker card using the adorable Sweets Stamp Set. I love this set, it's so versatile and fun that I'm going to use it for a lot of projects, especially planner and cards!

Watch the card process in the video below for all the details.

First of all, I stamped on watercolor paper using Archival black ink and I colored all the subjects from Sweets Stamp Set with Tombow brush pens; then I cut the subjects with the matching dies. I used the circle with scallop from the Flower Circles Inverted Die set and I placed the acetate on white paper to create the shaker card.

I created with the foam tape a space to put inside the sequins and the colored candies.

I then closed the card with pink card stock and I started to decorate the front with the funny girl and sweets.

For the banner I used the stamps composing the phrase "Sweets for the sweet" and, after all, I created a pattern for the border of the card using yellow, pink and blue Tombow pens at last, shake!!!

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

[Guest & Giveaway] Pretty Wings by Wanda Guess

Hi again! It’s Wanda, and I’m so happy to be joining you here on the Waffle Flower Blog again in this beautiful month of June! Today I’m sharing a card I made using the new Pretty Wings stamp set and dies. For this project, I used all three sizes of the beautiful daisy stamps! I used a color palette that is warm and rich, like a Summer heat wave.

I started with an A2 card base made from wood grain paper. The I used the Lacy Layers Dies to cut a rectangular window in the front of the card. I offset it slightly into the upper right corner of the card. Since the area behind was brown, I layered a piece of white cardstock. I later stamped my sentiment onto this white piece.

I stamped and die cut several daisies using red, yellow and orange ink. All the centers are stamped in black ink to add a pop! I layered the daisies around the window opening of the card. I also die cut some of the Greenery dies using bright green paper. Everything was then layered and attached to the card. These colors are so fresh.

Here is a side photo of the completed card. This is a really fun card layout and you could use a circle, a square, or any other shape, for the opening.

I stamped the "THANKS" sentiment just above the green leaves in the bottom right of the opening.

BIG hugs and thanks to Waffle Flower for inviting me to be a guest designer during June. I’m grateful for the chance to be featured here and to share with everyone! Have an amazing week!

Wanda

[Guest & Giveaway] Heatwave! by Wanda Guess

Hi everyone! It’s Wanda here, and I’m so very excited to be a guest designer for one of my very favorite companies! I adore Waffle Flower stamps and dies and love any chance I can get to work with these creative and beautiful products. I’m sharing a tropical card today made with the super cute Heatwave Stamp Set and Matching Dies. I mixed in some of my other favorite new dies too! I’m a sucker for tropical leaves right now - so on trend!

At first I was going to make this card big and bold with red and lime green and yellow. Then I had another thought… What if I go with a 1950’s Palm Beach vibe? I love the result of working with mint green, soft pink and grey. It’s amazing how much a color palette can affect the mood of a design. I like to shake it up a bit with my colors.

I started with a medium grey card base cut and scored to A2 size. Then I stamped and die cut out all the clothing and accessories pieces. I used the same colors on all the pieces to give a cohesive look to my card. Each of the items was later affixed to the card using foam tape.

I used the beautiful Lacy Layers Dies to create a white scalloped layer for the focal point of the card. I wrapped a piece of matching twine around the bottom before attaching it to the card front. Next I die cut some gorgeous leaves from the Greenery Die Set. I like to sprinkle some white color mist onto solid die cuts to break up the color and add just a bit of something!

It was really fun to assemble this card! I tried lots of ways, but ended up loving the leaves at the top with the sentiment, from the Pretty Wings Stamp Set, in a matching scalloped frame. And then the clothes and accessories lined up below. I added a few pink enamel dots to finish it off and glued a tiny bow onto the twine. This would make a really fun card for a girlfriend, or a shower, or just because!

I just want to say a giant THANK YOU to Nina and the crew at Waffle Flower for inviting me to be a small part of the action around here! I’ll be back with another project next week! Take care!

[Guest & Giveaway] Balloon Puppies by Samantha Mann

Hello! Samantha here and today I'm BEYOND excited to be a small part of the Waffle Flower family!

I was lucky enough to get to work with the On My Mark stamp set and, I created two ADORABLE cards to share with you! :) For my first card, I created an ink blended background with Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio! LOOOOOVE that color combo! :)

I colored directly onto the CUTE puppy and balloon stamps with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then spritzed with a tiny bit of water and stamped them onto my cardstock! After I stamped the images, I did go back and smooth out the colors with my markers, just a smidge! Once it was dry, I added some white gel pen accents and fussy cut out the images - but if YOU wanted to make this card, too, you could use the dies! I popped up the images with foam tape, and the sentiment banner too!

My 2nd card was totally inspired by my first card, and so I created it, with a video!!

 

You can check out the video here! And here's a secret - it's my first video! Eeee! Be kind! Ha! :)

Thank you SO much for hanging with me today on the Waffle Flower Crafts blog! I am beyond humbled and excited to be here, and I'll never forget that cute cute puppy! Ha! :)
