The Stitched Morning Glories were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Safe Choice, Happy Go Lucky, New Fish In Pond, Daydreaming, You Said What, and Chirp Chirp Inks. The flowers or parts of the flowers were die cut with the medium and small Embroidery Hoops dies, keeping the center pieces. The embroidery hoops were die cut again from cardstock adhered to Fun Foam and then inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

The background of the card was created from some light blue cardstock die cut with a Patched Layers Die for that great stitching detail along the edges. A greeting from the Notions Stamp Set was stamped in the lower left corner using Like A Pro Ink. Additional images from the Notions Stamp Set were stamped all over the background using New Fish In Pond Ink for a tone-on-tone look. The dimensional embroidery hoop frames and stamped flowers were adhered to the background as shown and the whole panel was adhered to a white top fold card base to complete the design.

Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

Repeating Background with Colored Images by Nichol Spohr

Hi friends! Nichol here today with an idea for creating repeating background colored images with the Sweets Stamp Set. Instead of making the Sweets images the embellishment of the card, the images are used to created a custom background by repeatedly stamping the images until the 4” x 5 1/4” white cardstock background is completely full.

Watch the video below or on our Youtube Channel.

The images were colored in with Copic Markers and additional colorful hearts were stamped using Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, New Fish In Pond, and Happy Go Lucky Inks. The addition of colorful hearts fills in the background nicely. For the greeting, a rectangle was die cut from black cardstock using a Stitched Layers Die. Greetings from the Sweets Stamp Set were stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The greeting was adhered to the background with foam adhesive. Nuvo Crystal Drops finish off the greeting and Glossy Accents, a white opaque pen, and the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen add fun detail to the background.

Hi Everyone! It's Therese here!

Revealing a secret is always so much fun and that is what a slider card can do. Today it’s time to create a push tab slider card using some sweet Summery Big Bear and Bird images.

[Video] Interactive - Push Tab Slider Card by Therese

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

I used the wave die from Stay Cool die set to create a decorative cut for the image to slide through on a piece of blue cardstock. I stamped some blue waves with Daydreaming ink and topped them off with a snow marker pen.

The images from Stay Cool stamp set were stamped and colored with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut it out leaving a pull tab which I stamped a red My Pleasure Ink arrow from the Monochrome stamp set.

The sentiment from Stay Cool stamp set was white heat embossed on black cardstock. I inserted the image in place and then adhered the panel to the front of a topfold card. The fish and sentiment were also attached to the card front along with a few clear droplets.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!

[TT Video] Large Gem Cards by Channin

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be here with you all for another Technique Tuesday! This week I’m incorporating large acrylic gems into my card designs! I’m so thrilled to share with you these 4 sparkly cards and I hope you like them just as much as I do!

[TT Video] Large Gem Cards by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

Card 1

For this first card I stamped and heat embossed in silver the shoes and a sentiment from the First Step Stamp Set on an A2 top-folding black card base. Next, I colored in the shoes with a Kirarina Wink Pen (emerald green, 013).

I then adhered 7 emerald tear drop gems onto each shoe using glossy accents as an adhesive. And with that, this card is done!

 

Card 2

For my second card I started by stamping the individual gem stamps from the First Step Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on an A2 top-folding black cardbase. Using a MISTI, I stamped each gem 3 times to make sure the images showed up on the black cardstock.

I then stamped a bowtie from the Bowtiful Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black 3 times on the card. Next, stamped and heat embossed in silver a sentiment from the Bowtiful Stamp Set. I then adhered pink and purple gems of various sizes with in the outline of the stamped bowtie using glossy accents.

 

Card 3

Alrighty for card number 3, first I diecut 2 of the Magical Butterflies on a 4.125 x 5.25 black panel. I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Purse-nality Stamp Set in silver on the panel. I then centered the panel onto an A2 black cardbase and traced the butterflies with a pencil.

I then removed the panel and adhered a variety of gems over the traced butterflies. Lastly, I doubled up foam tape and added it to the backside of my panel and then adhered the panel onto the card front.

 

Card 4

For my last card I repeatedly stamped a gem image from the First Step Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. Like I did on the second card, each gem image was stamped 3 times consecutively so the images would show up on the black cardstock.

I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Gemstone Stamp Set in silver. Lastly, I created a gem design by adhering the gems with glossy accents around a center gem creating a radiating pattern. And that's it!

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

[In the Details] Repeating Pattern Greeting Backgrounds by Nichol

Hello friends! Nichol here today with a card featuring a background with a repeating pattern stamped with greetings from the Pawsome Stamp Set. I took the Tickled Pink, Safe Choice, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, New Fish In Pond, Daydreaming, and Happy Go Lucky Waffle Flower Inks and repeatedly stamped a background using a sentiment phrase from the Pawsome Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock. The rainbow look is one of my favorites and showcases the gorgeous inks plus makes for a stunning rainbow background!

The panel was die cut with a Patched Layers Die to give a decorative look to the outer edges of the background. Dogs and heart images from the Pawsome Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock and colored in with Copic Markers before being die cut with the coordinating Pawsome Dies. The dogs were adhered with foam adhesive below the repeating greeting and the hearts and accents were layered over and around the background, matching the rainbow color/order of the design. Glossy Accents was applied over the hearts for a glossy, dimensional finish.

On the inside of the card I stamped the greeting again and finished with rainbow hearts surrounding the greeting stamped with the Waffle Flower Inks.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Nichol

[Interactive]-Across The Miles Pull Tab Slider Card by Katie

Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie Gehring here with a video to share with you today on how I created a Pull Tab Slider Card featuring the Across the Miles stamp set and matching die illustrated by Big Bear and Bird.

Things are looking up for Big Bear as he ascends the evening sky on a hot air balloon ride. The track for the slider element was a snap to make with the Holiday Words Dies. The Year Round Words die and the Sentiments die will also work for this technique. The rectangles are the perfect width to create the slider element and you can use whichever word that will give you the best length for your track. Using Fun Foam to form the track for the slider tab is an economical alternative to double sided foam tape.

I have loads more tips and ideas to share with you. I hope you’ll take a peek at my video to see how it all came together.

[TT Video] 4th of July Chalkboard Art Card by Channin

Hello everyone and happy 4th of July! It’s Channin her with a new technique video to share! This week I’m playing with the wonderful BBQ Sayings and Meat Up Stamp Sets to create a chalkboard art inspired card. I combined heat embossing, colored pencils, and even a white gel pen to get a realistic chalkboard look. Check the video to see how it all comes together!

[TT Video] 4th of July Chalkboard Art Card by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I stamped a sentiment from the BBQ Sayings Stamp Set in embossing ink in the center of a black 4.25x5.5 cardstock panel then heat embossed it in white. Next, I stamped and heat embossed in red 3 flags around the sentiment. I then I stamped and white embossed several images from the Meat Up Stamp Set, BBQ Sayings Stamp Set, and the Big Day Stamp Set around the sentiment to complete the ring/wreath. Next I colored in the blue portions of the American flag with a blue (PC903) prismacolor colored pencil. I then colored all the white images with a white prismacolor colored pencil.

Next, I colored in the stripes of the flags with a white gel pen. I then created fireworks with the white colored pencil and the gel pen. Next, I diecut “happy” and “fourth of july” out of blue cardstock using the Holiday Words Die. I also cut strips of red paper that I glued the behind the sentiment strips with liquid adhesive. I then trimmed my panel to 4.125 x 5.25 and then adhered it an A2 top folding black card base. Lastly, I adhered the diecut sentiments onto the card front.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

[In the Details] Metallic Lacy Flowers by Nichol

Hello! Nichol here today with one of my very favorite techniques, using metallic water colors to color in images embossed on dark cardstock. Metallic Watercolors, like the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors show up beautifully on darker cardstock. I stamped the Lacy Flowers images on a dark gray cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with a platinum embossing powder.

The designs were repeated over the cardstock strip to give the illusion of a larger piece of paper being trimmed down for a card. Creating my own backgrounds is one of my favorite things to do! Once the images were embossed, I used a water brush pen to pick up the Starry Colors and paint or “color in” the different areas of the embossed Lacy Flowers. The metallic sparkle look is striking against a dark background.

Once dry, the watercolored strip was adhered to a white side fold card base. A greeting from the Lacy Flowers Stamp Set was stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder above the top of the strip. Two thin black strips of cardstock were used to “frame up” the strip. For the dimensional greeting, gold foil cardstock was adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive and the With Love Die was used to die cut a beautiful scripty greeting! The greeting was adhered to the card as shown to complete the sentiment and the cards were finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in metallic colors.

Thanks for stopping by!

[Video] Interactive - Stay Cool Pop Up Card by Katie

Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie Gehring here. Today I am sharing with you a technique that is really fun on both the inside and out- Pop Up Cards! Pop Up Cards treat your special recipients to an extra surprise when they open the card. I used nearly every image from the Stay Cool Stamp Set and Matching Die illustrated by Big Bear and Bird to create my card and tell a bit of a story.

The front of the card shows Big Bear and Bird relaxing by the edge of the water- tropical drink resting in the sand.

When you open the card, everyone has jumped in the water to cool off on a warm summer day!

I have a video to share with you today demonstrating how I created this card, including the pop up element. I hope you’ll take a look and consider giving Pop Up cards a try!
