[Interactive] Tea for Two Pop Up Card by Yainea

Hi there! It's Yainea here and this week I made a Pop Up card using the super cute images from Tea For Two stamps and dies on both the front and the inside of my card and I colored them with watercolors.

To create my sentiment, I used the Cutaway Alpha dies, it really adds a special touch to the front.

To create the pop up mechanism I added a piece of cardstock that I previously die cut with the scalloped die from the Scenery dies and colored with green ink to look like a grassy ground. I added another piece like this on the front of the card to match the inside look.

Thanks for stopping by!

[WIW] Making a Sandy Beach for Big Bear by Kari VanNoy

Hello all! It's Kari here and I'm so thrilled to be back on the Waffle Flower blog sharing a fun project! So many people asked how I created the sandy beach for Big Bear so I decided to make a video to share the process. This is such a fun (and easy) project. If you would like to make an awesome sandy beach like this one, please do watch the video below.

[WIW] Making a Sandy Beach for Big Bear by Kari VanNoy

This stamp set is called "Stay Cool" and features one of my favorite images by Big Bear & Bird. To start, I stamped Big Bear on the center of the card. I then added a mask over the bear, and stamped the towel. I added a mask for the towel, and lastly stamped the bird on top of Big Bear. I love how the legs of the bird are stretched out in front of him!

After masking all the images, I created the sandy beach by using a ripped piece of paper and masking off the top of the card. I used 2 colors of Distress Ink to create the beach color background: Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. After inking on these two colors, I used Distress Markers in the same colors and spritzed on some "grains of sand" using the Distress Marker Spritzer. So fun!

I used a sun stencil to ink on a sunny sky in two different colors. Lastly, I stamped on the sentiment from the same stamp set. I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color in all the images. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by today!

[Technique] Stamping Chevrons by Channin

[Technique] Stamping Chevrons by Channin

Hello everyone, it’s Channin here with a new technique video! This week I’m making chevrons with the new Plaid Play Stamp Set. In the video I demonstrate my method for stamping chevrons and I also show you how to create 3 different chevron designs with simple modifications to the same technique!

[Technique] Stamping Chevrons by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First I cut an A2 panel in half vertically to create (2) 5.5” by 2.125” panels. I then positioned the largest solid stripe stamp from the Plaid Play Stamp Set in my MISTI at an angle with the help of the smaller triangle from the Creative Corners set. I then stamped a series of stripes in My Pleasure, Happy Go Lucky, Oh Happy Day, New Fish in Pond, and Peace of Mind till the half was completely covered. I then stamped the other half of the panel in the same process except with the strip flipped.

I then glued the halves onto an A2 panel, trimmed it down and adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. Next, I diecut a circle out of vellum using the Flower Circles Die set. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment and hearts from the Big Day Stamp Set. Lastly I added small strips of foam tape to the backside of the vellum, behind the sentiment and hearts and then adhered it to the center of the card.

For this card I followed the same steps as before to create the chevron stripes except this time I used a smaller solid stripe stamp from the Plaid Play Stamp Set and I some used different Waffle Flower Inks (Daydreaming, New Fish in Pond, Chirp Chirp, You Said What, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Safe Choice, & Happy Go Lucky). I then cut the halves in half again vertically and then adhered them to an A2 panel.

I then trimmed the panel and adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. I then diecut “good luck” out of white cardstock and craft foam using the Good Luck Word Die. I then trimmed off the luck portion with scissors and adhered the cardstock “good” and the craft foam “good” together. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment using the Happy Day Stamp Set onto a strip of black cardstock. Lastly, I adhered all the portions of the sentiment onto the card front.

I also followed the same steps as before to create the chevron stripes as in card 1 except this time I didn’t cover the entire half. I also used a smaller stripe stamp and Peace of Mind, New Fish in Pond, You Said What, and Oh Happy Day inks.

I then adhered the halves to an A2 panel, trimmed the panel, and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-fold card base. Lastly I created a sentiment in the same manner as I did for card 2 and I adhered it to the card front.

I hope you enjoyed. Thanks so much for stopping by!

[In the Details] Boo Halloween Shaker by Nichol Spohr

[In the Details] Boo Halloween Shaker by Nichol Spohr

Hello there! Nichol here today with a Halloween shaker card featuring the Boo Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I find that my favorite shakers are ones where there is stuff going on inside the shaker, on the acetate window, and on the front of the frame! Even though this is a simple design, this adorable Halloween card is sweetly spooky and the interactive shaker element adds lots of fun!

[In the Details] Boo Halloween Shaker by Nichol Spohr

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

The inside of the shaker was created by stamping the open moon image from the Starry Night Stamp Set on Bristol Smooth paper using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder. The moon and sky were watercolored and set aside to air dry. The front of the shaker was created by die cutting white cardstock with a Lacy Layers Die and a Flower Circles Inverted Die. The frames were secured together with adhesive and backed with a piece of acetate stamped with the spider web image from the Boo Stamp Set using white StazOn Ink.

The “boo” greeting was stamped in the lower right corner of the shaker frame using black ink. The rest of the images from the Boo Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock, colored in with Copic Markers, and die cut with the coordinating Boo Dies. The bats were adhered to the “inside” of the shaker and the rest of the images on the shaker front. Two layers of foam tape were used to frame up the shaker window and silver and clear star confetti and sequins were used to fill it.

Thanks for stopping by!

[Interactive] Peek-A-Boo Panel Card by Katie Gehring

Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie Gehring here to with a video to share with you today showing how to introduce a little Peek-a-Boo on your next card project.

[Interactive] Peek-A-Boo Panel Card by Katie Gehring

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

My card features the super cute Tea for Two stamp set and matching dies. By using the Lacy Layers 2 dies to cut a rectangle from the front of my card, I was able to create layers, dimension, lots of fun details, and a couple surprises without any extra bulk.

To add even more interest to the front of my card, I created a plaid pattern using the Plaid Play stamp set and several shades of Waffle Flower dye inks. The sentiments from the Bear and Bird stamp set compliment the Tea for Two scene perfectly. A complete list of my Waffle Flower supplies is below.

I hope you’ll take a peek at my video to see how this sweet tea party scene came together!

Thanks for stopping by!

[WIW] Plaid Boo Card by Laura Bassen

Hi there! Laura here and today I have a fun, colorful Halloween project to share featuring the Boo stamp set as well as the Plaid Play stamp set. I used several of the delicious Waffle Flower inks in rainbow colors, of course, to create my plaid pattern.

I stamped the images from the Boo stamp set with Memento ink and colored them with Copics. Then I used the matching Boo dies to die cut each image out and popped them up with foam tape.

For the sentiment I embossed the "boo" in white onto black cardstock and then fussy cut it into a speech bubble.

Thanks for stopping by!

[Technique] Color Blocking with Layering Marble by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video to share! This week I’m having some fun with design by playing with blocks of color and pattern to create 3 color blocking inspired cards. Using the Layering Marble Stamp Set, I created beautiful marble pattern paper and paired it with rich colored cardstock and a simple color blocking technique to make create 3 quick and easy cards.

[Technique] Color Blocking with Layering Marble by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I cut 5 A2 (4.25 x 5.5) panels of 65lb white cardstock,1 A2 panel of 65lb dark grey cardstock, and 1 A2 panel of 65lb teal cardstock. Next, using the Layering Marble Stamp Set, I created a marble background on one of the white panels using Like a Pro Dye Ink for the first layer, Tsukineko Brilliance Lightning Black of the second layer, and Memento Tuxedo black for the final layer. I then created my color blocking template by dividing one of the white panels up into 3 triangle sections with a ruler and then cutting the sections out with a paper trimmer.

Then by tracing the triangles from the template, I transferred the triangle design onto the marble, teal and gray panel. Next, I cut out all the triangles from the 3 panels using a paper trimmer. Then, using the template as a guide, I constructed 3 mixed panels by incorporating one section from each one of the colored/patterned panels.

Once I had my panels constructed, I adhered each one down on the remaining 3 white panel with liquid adhesive. I then adhered these mixed panels onto 3 top-folding white 110lb cardbase. Next, I diecut Congrats, Celebrate, and Perfect from gold foil cardstock and white craft foam using the Congrats, Celebrate, and Perfect Word Dies.

I then adhered the gold sentiments onto the corresponding foam sentiment with liquid adhesive. I then stamped and gold embossed additional sentiments from the Congrats and Little Mermaids Stamp Sets on each of the cards. Lastly, I adhered the dimensional gold sentiments with liquid adhesive to each card.

I hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
