Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Marcie, Daria, Shona and our June guest designer Miriam are here to share their takes on this month’s Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our June challenge too! Marcie Sharp Products: Chunky Chevron Die, Lacy Flowers Die, Lacy Flower Mats Die, Succulents Stamp Set What Marcie Says: After die-cutting several of the Chunky Chevrons from cardstock, I adhered them to a white cardstock panel. The Lacy Flower Mats and one of the larger Lacy Flowers Dies make a perfect focal piece for this card, and along with a gold heat embossed sentiment help to soften up the hard lines from the chevrons in the background. A few scattered sequins finish it off, and the entire panel is adhered to a white card base using foam tape. Daria Grushina Products: Starry Night Stamp Set, In Every Way Stamp Set, Tiny Butterfly Die What Daria Says: I just love the June palette, it is so soft and delicate, so I've wanted to make something with that feeling... I also think that a little butterfly replicates a little lantern from the photo, that shines so tender... Shona Chambers Products: Willy and Friends Stamp Set, Willy and Friends Die, Lotus Stamp Set What Shona Says: I blended Distress Ink on the card front and flicked with water droplets. I stamped the Lotus Leaf, coloured lightly with green pencil and fussy cut. I stamped the monkey, her lei and flower on white cardstock, also coloured with pencils and used matching dies. They were all popped up on foam tape with the dragonflies and sentiment stamped in black ink. Miriam Prantner (guest) Products: Lacy Flower Stamp Set What Miriam Says: I was inspired by how delicate and lacy the flowers were and of course the colors. I stamped the image a few times and embossed, then used a cutting knife to remove portions to create that lacy effect. I was having a little trouble incorporating all the colors, and then opted to use some inktense pencils to lightly color in some sections on the doily and then wet them to blend the color.
