[Technique] Offset Rainbow Sentiment by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video! In today’s video I’m doing a lot of stamping to create this colorful Christmas card! By simply stamping a sentiment slightly offset and repeatedly in a rainbow of colors, I create a dimensional and unique one-layer card.

[Technique] Offset Rainbow Sentiment by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I arranged all the letters in “Christmas”, except for the last “s”, from the Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set on my MISTI. I then stamped the letters in Daydreaming Dye Ink onto an A2 white card base. I then slid the card upward 1/16”, keeping the side of the card against the side of MISTI, and stamped the letters in a new color (Happy Go Lucky Dye Ink). I repeated this process for several more Waffle Flower inks (Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, & New Fish in Pond) and then finished with a final layer in VersaFine Onyx Black. I then thoroughly dried my card with my heat gun.


Next I removed only the “s” from my MIST and then flipped my MISTI around and then positioned the “s” at the end of the word. I then repeatedly stamped the “s” in exactly the same manner as I stamped the rest of the letters. I then heat set my card, repositioned it in the MISTI, and then stamped the “s” in Versamark and heat embossed with glitter embossing powder. I then embossed the rest of the letters in Christmas, by first repositioning the “s” using the card as a guide. Lastly, I stamped and heat embossed “Merry” and some flourishes from the Peace on Earth Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black and Versamark and the same glitter embossing powder.

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

[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!

[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!

Time to get some Action Fruity Girls happening! These gorgeous girls are so unique and such fun to color that I couldn’t resist.

I stamped my boutique background using the Plaid Play stamp set in the colors New fish in Pond, Safe Choice and You Said What. Then die cut the largest panel from the Stitched Layers die set. I also used the same die to emboss the front of my topfold card to add some extra details.

I stamped two of the girl images from the Fruity Thank You stamp set and colored them with Copic markers to match the background. I fussy cut them out as I need to leave enough space on the back of the image to hide the mini action wobbles.

The girls were both popped up on the front of the card with a sentiment die cut from the Celebrate Word die in some black cardstock. Then it’s time to ‘wobble’, action wobble that is!

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

Backgrounds were inked by masking off portions of cardstock with post it tape and using an Ink Duster to apply Waffle Flower My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, Daydreaming, and Happy Go Lucky inks to form a rainbow rays background.

Borders were die cut from smooth white cardstock using a Scenery Die and layered along the bottom edge of the background. A greeting from the Monochrome Stamp Set was stamped on one of the cloud borders using black ink.

The images were adhered to the backgrounds as shown and the card was finished by applying Glossy accents to some of the images.

[In the Details] Framed up Morning Glories by Nichol

Hello! Nichol here today with a card featuring the brand new Stitched Morning Glories Stamp Set and Embroidery Hoops Dies. The embroidery hoops are the perfect frames for these gorgeous stitched flowers!

[In the Details] Framed up Morning Glories by Nichol

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

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

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.

[Video] Repeating Background with Colored Images

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.

[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!

[In the Details] Repeating Pattern Greeting Backgrounds by Nichol

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

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!

[TT Video] Adding Color with Solid Shapes by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here, back with a new technique video! This week I’m sharing how to add color to your images without busting out your markers or colored pencils. Plus these colorful designs are quick and easy to create!

POST: [TT Video] Adding Color with Solid Shapes by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

 

 

Cards 1 and 2

For these first two cards, I first stamped a background of circles using a circle from the Flower Circles Stamp Set in You Said What, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Safe Choice, Happy Go Lucky, Chirp Chirp, New Fish in Pond, and Daydreaming Dye inks on two 4.25x5.25 panels of white 110lb cardstock. Next, I repeatedly stamped a balloon from the Balloon Messages Stamp Set on one panel and then a bowtie from the Bowtiful Stamp Set on the other in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next, I stamped “It’s your birthday” from the Eat Cake Stamp Set on the panel with balloons and “big boy today” from Big Day Stamp Set on the panel with the bowties. Next, I outlined the stamped sentiments where they overlapped the stamped images with a white gel pen. Lastly, I stamped the sentiments again in Like a Pro but slightly off-set to create a shadow and then mounted the panels onto a top-folding A2 white card base using foam tape and adhesive tape.

Cards 3 and 4

First, I stamped the backgrounds exactly how I stamped my first two cards the only difference is one panel was 4.25x5.5. I then stamped sentiments from the Big Day Stamp Set on both panels in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next, I stamped images from the Big Day Stamp Set (cake, ice cream cone, and stars) and Stocking Stamp Set (present) around the sentiments on the panels. Then I stamped the sentiments again in Like a Pro but slightly off-set to create a shadow. Lastly, I trimmed the larger panel to 4x5.25 and adhered it to a top-folding A2 black card base and adhered the smaller panel to a top-folding A2 white card base with foam tape and tape adhesive.

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