Always with Daniel Smith Watercolors by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new video! Today I’m demonstrating how I created this sweet card with the Always set and the no line watercoloring technique.

Always with DS Watercolors by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First I stamped all the flowers and leaves from the Always Stamp Set onto an A2 panel of watercolor paper in Distress Ink Antique Linen. I then stamped one of the flowers and the bird on a scrap of watercolor paper in Antique Linen as well. I then watercolored all the stamped images in with Daniel Smith watercolors. Once I had finished the watercoloring I die cut the single flower and bird with the matching dies.

I then stamped my sentiment in Distress Ink Shaded Lilac and Distress Oxide Faded Jeans onto watercolor paper, just to be consistent then trimmed to a strip. Next, I adhered my panel onto an A2 top folding card base, then adhered the sentiment, flower and bird with foam tape. And that’s all! :)

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thanks so much for stopping by!

United We Flourish: Stitched Together Stamp Set and Matching Die

Hello!! We are so excited to share an amazing set that we created with our friends from Ellen Hutson LLC! With some amazing designs by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery we have have created a new layering cross stitch stamp set and matching die called Stitched Together. This set is exclusive to Waffle Flower Crafts and Ellen Hutson LLC for the United We Flourish program. To learn more about the UWF program visit our friends at Ellen Hutson by clicking HERE.

Let’s take a look at this fun and unique stamp set and matching die!

The Stitched Together Stamp Set and matching die is a wonderful addition to our stitched collection. Many of our other stitched products would work beautifully with the Stitched Together Combo, I even incorporate a couple in my cards. Let's check them out!

 

Stitched Together Stamp Set & Matching Die

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I die cut 3 globes using the Stitched Together matching die out of 110 lb white cardstock. I then used the cardstock I die cut the globes out of as a jig, place it in my MISTI, popped in one of the diecuts and then positioned the first stamp for the globe image. I chose to start with the "stand" layer and stamped this layer on each one of the die cuts.

Two I gold embossed and one I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. With that layer stamped I then positioned the next layer (water) and then stamped that layer on all the die cuts.

For the water, I stamped two in New Fish in Pond and Peace of Mind and one in Versafine. I repeated this process for the remaining two layers.

I stamped the flowers in Tickled Pink and My Pleasure and the leaves in Distress Oxide Crack Pistachio and Distress Ink Lucky Clover. I also die cut and stamped 3 hearts using the same jig technique.

With my globes all and hearts stamped I moved onto adding some texture my panels.

I started with 3 panels (2 white, 1 black) die cut with the largest die from A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set. I then used the stitched dies from the 7 Skeins Floss Bobbin Die set to add texture to all the panels.

Next, I stamped sentiments from the Stitched Together Stamp Set on each panel. Lastly, I adhered the panels to A2 top-folding card bases and then attached the globes with foam tape and the hearts with glue. 

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

[Interactive] Let Love Grow Pull Tab Card by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new card video to share. In today’s video I demonstrate how to create this happy pull tab card with the new Let Love Grow set and Pull Tabs Die.

[Interactive] Let Love Grow Pull Tab Card by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

To start, I first stamped the two strawberry sprites and a butterfly from the Let Love Grow Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black on Canson Coldpress watercolor paper. I then watercolored the images with Distress inks; Candied Apple, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Lucky Clover, Crushed Olive, and Cracked Pistachio.

Once I finished watercoloring all the images I die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blended WFC’s Tickled Pink Dye Ink at the upper quarter of an A2 panel of pink cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment in VersaFine Onyx black at the bottom right corner of a 2 1/2” x 5 1/2” scrap of green cardstock. Next, I ink blended Lucky Clover at the upper portion of the and then die cut the scrap with the Scenery Die to create a grassy hill.

I then constructed my pull tab on the pink panel using the Pull Tabs Die. With my pull tab complete, I then adhered my panel onto an A2 card base and then adhered one of the sprites to the pull tab. Lastly, I adhered the grass/hill and the rest of the images to the card front with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and card! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sweet Ice Cream Shop by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new video demonstrating how to create this sweet ice cream shop scene using the new Sweet Ice Cream Set and the Apartment Builder Die.

Sweet Ice Cream Shop by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I die cut a panel using the A2 Grid Panel Die out of turquoise paper. I then die cut windows, balcony, curtains, and awning from white, pink, and peach cardstock with the Apartment Builder Die. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set onto pink cardstock and then die cut the awning from the stamped cardstock. I then stamped and copic colored some of the mice and an ice cream cone from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set. Once I had finished coloring the images I die cut them out with the matching dies.

Next, I ink blended some You Said What Dye Ink onto an A2 top-folding card base and then assembled the shop onto the grid panel using liquid adhesive to hold all the pieces in place. Next I added foam tape to the back side of the grid panel and then adhered the panel to the card base. Lastly, I adhered the panel to the card base and then added the mice and ice cream. And for the final touch I added some wink of stella to the the ice cream cones.

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

[Technique] Contact Paper and Ink Lifting by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video! In today’s video I expand upon the ink lifting technique by incorporating contact paper masks!

[Technique] Contact Paper and Ink Lifting by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

To start I die cut several flowers and leaves from a 6” x 6” piece of contact paper with the Bouquet Builder Matching Dies. Once die cut I saved the die sheet as well as the die cut flower and leaves.

Next, I ink blended distressed oxides (1:Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet; 2: Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade) onto 2 A2 panels of Bristol paper die cut using the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set.

I then heat set the panels and then removed the backing on the contact paper die cuts and adhered them to the panels. I adhered the sheet to one panel and the die cuts leaves and flowers to the other.

Next, with a wrung out chamois cloth, I lifted the ink off the panels by pressing the chamois to the paper. Once I finished lifting the ink off the surface, I removed the contact paper and then stamped and white heat embossed some flowers and leaves from the Bouquet Builder Samp Set onto the panels.

Next, I created my sentiments by stamping and heat embossing sentiments from the Rainbows Stamp Set onto strips of black cardstock. To finish the cards, I adhered the panels onto A2 top-folding card bases and then adhered the sentiments with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and technique! Thanks so much for stopping by!

[Fun Friday] Shaker Card with Suspended Element by Amanda

Hi here everyone! It's Amanda here and today I'm making a really fun shaker card using the adorable stamp set "Toadally".

I started by stamping and coloring a bunch of images from the Toadally Stamp Set, colored them with Copics and cut them using the matching dies. I used the dies "Nesting Circles 2" to create a window and added color to the the base card with Distress Inks.

To finish up my card I closed the window with acetate, laid foam tape on the back of the panel and added clear sparkling sequins. I also created a suspended element inside the window following a really cool (and easy) tutorial by Jennifer Mcguire. You can watch the video below for more details.

[Interactive] Therefore I Am Pull Tab Card by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a fun interactive card to share! In today’s video I demonstrate how to create a pull tab card using the new Therefore I Am Set by Big Bear and Bird. This card also has a really fun reveal of bear’s buddy, bird, hiding under bear’s chef’s hat!

[Interactive] Therefore I Am Pull Tab Card by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I die cut a notch for the pull tab using the Pull Tabs Die set from two A2 panels (4.25” x 5.5”), one made from white 110lb cardstock and the other from light blue cardstock. I then die cut the light blue panel with the largest dies from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set and the Nesting Circles 2 Die set.

Next, I ink blended a little You Said What Dye Ink onto the lower portion of the white panel with a mini ink blending tool. I then stamped, copic colored, and then die cut with the matching dies images from the Therefore I Am Stamp Set and the Bird & Bird Stamp Set. Next, fussy cut the spoon away from the bird die cut and touched with white gel pen any remaining ink from the spoon.

I then die cut the pull tab track into the white panel and then die cut the remaining pull tab mechanisms from white and blue cardstock with the Pull Tabs Die set. I then assembled my pull tab and then adhered the blue front panel and bear with foam tape. I then adhered the bird to the pull tab and adhered the remaining die cuts with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. Lastly, I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and berries to add a little sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and card! Thanks so much for stopping by!

[Technique] Ink Extracting with a Chamois by Channin

Hello all! It's Channin here and I have a really fun technique that I’m super excited to share with you all today! In today’ s video I will demonstrate how to create some beautifully textured backgrounds with a very simple ink extracting technique. Best part is you most likely already have all the supplies you need to give this a try!

[Technique] Ink Extracting with a Chamois by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I die cut an A2 panel from Bristol paper using the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die Set.

I then ink blended either distress inks or oxides over the entire panel.

I then bundled up a wrung out chamois and bounced it over the surface of the blended panel.

I then stamped, copic colored, and then die cut with the matching dies several images from the Bouquet Builder Set.

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed sentiments from the Rainbows Stamp Set onto black cardstock.

Lastly, I adhered the panels onto A2 top-folding card bases with liquid adhesive and then adhered the flowers and sentiments with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today’s technique and will give it a try yourselves! :) Thanks for stopping by!
