[In the Details] Custom Backgrounds by Nichol Spohr

Hello! It's Nichol here with an new In the Details video!

Creating your own custom patterned backgrounds is a snap with a layered stamp set. The Pretty Wings stamps makes for a gorgeous background when paired with the awesome Waffle Flower Inks.

I layered Safe Choice, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, New Fish In Pond, Daydreaming, and Happy Go Lucky dye inks.

Black paint splatters over the background, add interest and a bit of distressing to the design. In order to still see the butterflies through the greeting, I die cut Lacy Layers from vellum and added a stamped and embossed greeting from the First Step Stamp Set.

Frames were die cut from white and black cardstock using the same dies and layered one on to top of another around the vellum greeting. The background is still visible through the vellum, but slightly muted so it’s still easy to read!

An additional Pretty Wings butterfly was stamped and then die cut before being adhered underneath the greeting, using foam adhesive under the wings to make it appear to have just settled there on the card.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

[In the Details] Rainbow Stitched Unicorn by Nichol

Hello all! Nichol here with a new video for the our In the Details video series!

The new cross stitched stamp sets are perfect for using multiple ink colors on one image. Combining rainbow colors of ink to the mane and tail of the unicorn from the Stitched Unicorn Stamp Set with My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, and Daydreaming Inks adds lots of color and interest to this fun image!

The cross stitched stamp designs tends to be very “forgiving” with this particular technique. The main body of the unicorn was stamped with Like A Pro Ink and then the rainbow colors were used for the shooting star image as well!

The greeting was stamped in crisp black ink to really stand out with a scattering of smaller stitched stars throughout the design. The design was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Honey Gold and White Blizzard and some Glossy Accents over the unicorn’s eye.

Thanks for stopping by!

[Video]#TBT - Magical Rainbow Stripes with Katie Gehring

Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie Gehring here. On today’s #TBT, I am sharing a couple of cards I made by pairing the throwback Pattern Play stamp set with the new stamps and dies designed by Helen Dardik. A complete list of my Waffle Flower supplies is below.

[Video]#TBT - Magical Rainbow Stripes with Katie Gehring

Watch below or on our YouTube channel. To create the rainbow stripe background, I stamped a few of the images from the Pattern Play stamp set using Waffle Flower inks. I overlapped the stripes as I worked my way down the card following a loose, rainbow (ROYGBIV) color order. With such a colorful background, I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple by die cutting the Magical Butterfly die and Magical Flower Border die from white card stock. I layered it with a bit of gold card stock for a little extra glitz. The sentiment is from the Enveloper Choice stamp set. My next card was one that was almost destined for the trash bin. I was nearly finished with the card and I managed to mess up stamping the sentiment. Never fear, social media to the rescue! I stepped away and got some great suggestions from my friends and fellow card makers. Together we came up with a solution to hide my stamping boo-boo. This sentiment is from the Enveloper Hello stamp set. I hope you’ll take a peek at my video below to see how the cards came together and how the drama unfolded including lessons learned and a new to me product that made adhering these detailed die cuts a cinch.

Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie here with another #TBT. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share an idea with you for a cheeky sort of love card that’s perfect for any loved ones who are really into their social media. ;) To make this card, I pulled out the Sketchy Alpha stamp set and the Social Icons stamp set and created a custom sentiment to go with all the Social Media icons. [Video] #TBT- Love You More Than Card Watch it below or on our Youtube Channel. I colored in the letters with Copic Markers and drew a sketchy border around the Social Media icon images with a black pen. This sentiment will be perfect for a tween-ager who live-streamed a review of her Christmas Gifts and creates an Instagram Story when there’s a snow day. I have a video to share today of how I created this card. I hope you’ll take a peek to see how it all came together! Thanks for stopping by!

  Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie Gehring here. On today’s Throwback Thursday, we’re celebrating Waffle Flower’s new release!!! Hooray!! To get this party started I’m pairing the new Hey Girl stamp set with the Sketchy Numbers stamp set. First, I used Sketchy Numbers along with Waffle Flower Crafts dye ink to create a stamped background that looks just like patterned paper.   The adorable birthday cake sloth from the Hey Girl stamp set is the subject of a Insta Love photo frame. I am just crazy about this stamp set and these adorable sloths. I colored the sloth with Copic markers before adhering the stamped and colored image and the frame to the card with foam tape. The Copic markers used to color in the image along with links to all the Waffle Flower products used on my card are listed below. I hope you’ll take a peek at my video and see how it all came together!

[Video]#TBT - Celebrate a Bunch with Katie Gehring

Hello Waffle Flower friends, Katie here with another #TBT. A couple weeks ago, I received a special request to create a throwback card using the A Bunch stamp set. The A Bunch stamp set was originally released in Spring of 2015, and if it’s in your collection or on your wish list, it is definitely worth a second look. A Bunch features some really fun and playful daisy-type flowers and includes both outline flowers as well as coordinating solid stamps for some quick and easy two-step stamping. Today I’m using the A Bunch stamp set along with the Celebrate word die and Waffle Flower inks to create a “no line” watercolor card. This technique is much easier than it looks and the results can be really impressive. Using Waffle Flower dye inks as a watercolor medium is a great way to get more milage out of existing supplies. I hope you’ll take a peek at my video to see how it all came together. If there is an older Waffle Flower stamp set that you’d like to see featured on an upcoming #TBT, just leave me a comment below.

[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!

[Video] #TBT Greenery by Katie Gehring

DesignTeamHeadshots-KatieGehringHello Waffle Flower friends, Katie Gehring here with another #TBT. My card this week was inspired by the announcement earlier this month introducing Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year. You can read more about Pantone’s announcement here. The 2017 Color of the Year is called Greenery and it’s a bright and clean green with yellow undertones. I love that Greenery symbolizes new beginnings- so appropriate as 2016 is winding down and we are looking forward to the new year. I was inspired by the selection of this color to create a card that features lots of greenery. Using the Leafy stamp set along with the Wild & Free stamp set, I layered Waffle Flower inks and two step stamping techniques to create the tones seen in the lush background on my card. I hope you’ll take a peek at my video to see how it all came together!

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
