[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!

[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!
