We have a small release this month to focus on our Water Media Mat!

Please note: Water Media Mat is not shipping until mid April. Please place a separate order for in-stock items if you wish to receive them earlier.

For our April release, we have a sentiment set called Be Her Sentiments (stamp) to go with our popular Be Her (stamp, die, combo) and Be Him (stamp, die, combo) sets. We also have Bold Sentiments (stamp, die, combo) that is great for graphic cards. Grateful (stamp, die, combo) is our take on Mother's Day projects for 2019 with some warm hand drawn kitchen items.

By the end of this month, Waffle Flower will be 5 years old. It’s no wonder we have birthdays on our mind. Over the years we’ve had several floral birthday sets so we focused on some special birthday occasions this time.

April marks the beginning of baseball season and we are ready to hit one out of the park with the fun Batter stamp (stamp, die, combo). We have the cutest hamsters celebrating their co-workers in Office Birthday (stamp, die, combo). And the sweetest gymnasts partying with flips in Tumble On (stamp, die, combo). The We Herd (stamp, die, combo) is a reminder that when it comes to birthday parties, the more the merrier! And the Box Card Die offers an interactive way to give a birthday surprise right on the card!

Every year Waffle Flower releases several Back to Basics dies. Usually they are simple, nesting shapes that can be used as mattes, accents or even card bases.  This year we have the A2 Layers and A7 Layers dies for clean and timeless rectangle dies that will be a staple in your stash. For those who like fun shaped cards, layering shapes or paper crafting projects, we have the Speech Bubbles and Nesting Hearts dies. You can never have too many frame dies! So this year we added the Picture Frames and Ticket Frames dies. And, we have a special set for animal lovers. Designed by our fellow cardmaker JJ Bolton, The Rainbow Bridge (stamp, dog die, cat die, combo) sets were created to send messages of comfort to friends and family who have lost their beloved pet.

Waffle Flower Crafts April Release Day 2 - Introducing Notions Stamp Set

Introducing Notions Stamp Set

Colorful notions always make me want to start sewing! I've done a needlework inspired stamp set for Avery Elle (Needle Little Love). I got carried away by the beautiful font I was using when putting that set together. In this take, I used more images and concentrated on bringing out the possibility of color.
