Hello everyone! Our friend Virgina is here to share photo tutorials for two beautiful cards she's made with us! We love the use of color on her cards and the ways she used our With Love Word Die! --- Dear Waffleflower friends, I am Virginia Lu from Yes, Virginia… blog. I am so honored to share my love of Waffle Flower Stamps with you today. I honestly had a hard time choosing which stamp set to use when I went about this guest design work. Her are what I came up with: Card #1 guest designer virginia lu photo #1
  1. Create several dies with the set called ”With Love Word Die
  2. Make bows with “Bowtiful” and DCWV paper
  3. Start with the strips of paper and bow in the middle

  1. Glue the dies
  2. Trim off the excess
  3. Adhere sequins and dies
  4. Make a bow with silver strings

  1. Gather colorful inks and start stamping flowers with “In Every Way” stamps
  2. Make 2 dies with white and black card stock
  3. Glue them together, but slightly offset

  1. After stamping the flowers, position the die
  2. Use a paper-piercer and a rule, start piercing the holes
  3. Hand-stitching the sentiment with silver thread
