  Hello everyone!! It's Channin here and today I have a fun watercoloring technique to share with you all, wet on wet watercoloring!! Wet on wet watercoloring is a fun and loose way to watercolor. This technique allows for a lot of movement of your colors and yields beautiful varied results. And it’s so fun to watch, it looks and feels like the paint is painting itself!

Watch below or on our YouTube channel. First, I stamped and white embossed many little bags from the Little Gifts Stamp Set on a 5x7 panel of watercolor paper. Next, smooshed a rainbow of Waffle Flower dye inks (Happy Go Lucky, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Daydreaming, and Chirp Chirp) on a big piece of packaging plastic, you could simply use a sheet of acetate or a laminated sheet of white cardstock instead. I then misted my smooshed inks water. Next, with water from a cup dedicated to clean clear water, I painted a couple bags. I then picked up some watered down ink with my brush and transferred it to the bags I previously painted with water. I would often simply allow the ink to move on the surface of the water by itself but sometimes I would tilt my paper to get a little more movement. I continued this process till all my bags were painted. After my bags had dried I painted my background by smooshing Like a Pro dye ink on my palette, watering it down, and then painting around the bags. I then let the background dry and once it was dry I painted shadows around all the bags with some more watered down Like a Pro. I then stamped and white embossed a sentiment from the Balloon Messages Stamp Set on a strip of grey cardstock. Lastly, I adhered my panel onto my cardbase and then adhered my sentiment with some foam tape. I hope you enjoyed! Thanks so for stopping by and have a wonderful day! ~Channin   Products: Little Gifts Stamp Set Balloon Messages Stamp Set Happy Go Lucky Dye Ink Oh Happy Day Dye Ink My Pleasure Dye Ink Daydreaming Dye Ink Chirp Chirp Dye Ink Like a Pro Dye Ink

[Video]#TBT- Easy cards using Lacy Flower Mats dies

on December 29, 2016
Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie here. Today, I have a video to share with you about how I created two quick and easy cards using the Lacy Flower Mats dies. The Lacy Flower Mats were designed to coordinate with the beautiful and intricate Lacy Flowers dies, but they make lovely flowers all on their own too! These cards were so simple that right out of the package, you don’t even have to snip apart the nested dies. I used elements from the Flower Circles stamp set to add a little details and interest to the flowers. I hope you’ll take a peek at my process and maybe think about how supporting products can be a stand out on your next project!

[TT Video] Ink Smooshing with an Acyrlic Block by Channin

on December 28, 2016
  Hello everyone!! It’s Channin here! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and have a lot of new crafty goodies to play with!! Today I’m sharing a video demonstrating ink smooshing with an acrylic block. I love how this technique keeps the ink contained yet you still get a lot of play between the colors! I hope you check it out below!  

[TT Video] Ink Smooshing with an Acyrlic Block by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel. Card 1: First, I inked up an acrylic block with a rainbow of Waffle Flower inks (You Said What, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Happy Go Lucky, Daydreaming, and Chirp Chirp). I then misted the block with water and then pressed the block onto a panel of water color paper and left it to dry. Once dry I repeated the process and ink smooshed again directly on top of the section I did earlier. I did this so I had fewer white areas. Once the second layer was dry I stamped the balloon strings, balloons, and a sentiment from the Balloon Messages Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then smooshed Peace of Mind Dye Ink on my acrylic block and misted it with water and then used the watered down ink to paint a shadow around the balloons. Lastly, I took a white gel pen to outline the sentiment and add glares to the balloons. Card 2: I followed a very similar process for this card. I just positioned the stamps differently, used the solid balloon, and didn’t outline the sentiment. I hope you enjoyed!

designteamheadshots_lauraHello everyone!! It's Laura here! On this card I created a custom, cheeky sentiment using the Cutaway Alpha stamp set along with several of the Waffle Flower inks. I also used the little lamb image from the Welcome Spring stamp set along with the Welcome Spring coordinating die. I freehand cut a santa hat for the lamb and added a mini pom pom to finish it off. fleece-navidad-1

[TT Video] Heat Embossing with Layering Stamps by Channin

designteamheadshots_channinHello everyone!! It’s Channin here and today I am playing around with the beautiful layering stamps found in the Wild & Free stamp set. I will use this set to create a pretty floral card with layered inks and heat embossing. Plus I’ll share some tips for positioning layering stamps when heat embossing.

[Technique] Heat Embossing with Layering Stamps by Channin

Watch video below or on our YouTube channel. photo-1-1025 First, I created a floral arrangement using the Wild & Free stamp set on the upper half of my MISTI. I then stamped my arrangement with Coffee Loves Milk dye ink onto my 5” by 6 ½” card base. I did this so I could have a guide for positioning the corresponding solid stamps (bottom layer stamps) because I will eventually gold emboss the top layer of stamps and it is difficult to stamp on top of embossed images so I have to actually stamp the bottom layer stamps first. photo-2-1025 Now that I have my guide stamped, I flip my MISTI so I can use the other half to position the corresponding solid stamps. It’s important to note, that I don’t remove any of the stamps in my floral arrangement. I want to keep those exactly where they are so I can emboss later. Using the guide, I position the leaf stamps and stamp them in Chirp Chirp and Peace of Mind dye inks. After I completed the leaves, I move onto the flowers. I stamp two flowers with a Tickled Pink and My Pleasure combo to create pinky-red flowers and the other two flowers in a You Said What and Oh Happy Day combo to create yellow-orange flowers. After the flowers I stamp the other floral accents in a Safe Choice and Happy Go Lucky color combo. Now that my bottom layer stamps are done I can now gold emboss the top layer of stamps. I flip my MISTI back around so my first arrangement of stamps is lined up correctly on my card and stamp the images with embossing ink and then heat emboss in gold. Lastly I stamp and gold emboss the rest of my sentiment on a strip of pink cardstock, adhere it to craft foam, and then onto my card. I hope you enjoyed and found some these tips helpful. Have a wonderful day and see you next week!! ~Channin Supplies: Stamps: Wild & Free Stamp Set https://waffleflower.com/product/wild-free-stamp-set/ Inks: Coffee Loves Milk Dye Ink  Chirp Chirp Dye Ink  Peace of Mind Dye Ink Tickled Pink Dye Ink My Pleasure Dye Ink You Said What Dye Ink Oh Happy Day Dye Ink Safe Choice Dye Ink Happy Go Lucky Dye Ink
