Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Shelly, Laura Jane, Katie, Lorena and our June guest designer Ekaterina 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! Shelly Kurth Products: Hibiscus Stamp Set, Hibiscus Die, Willy & Friends Stamp Set, Willy & Friends Die What Shelly Says: I started by stamping, then coloring in my images with colored pencils. After, I used the matching dies with them. Once done, I sponged a little bit of blue distress ink for my background and then layered together my die cut pieces. Laura Jane Products: A Bunch Stamp Set, A Bunch Die, Good Stuff Stamp Set, Good Stuff Die, Lacy Layers Die What Laura Jane Says: I chose to recreate the mirrored scene by using Lacy Layers to make frames. The A Bunch Stamp Set and Die made an easy bunch of flowers that I embossed, cut and colored quickly. Then I popped them into the jar from the Good Stuff Stamp Set. Katie Gehring Products: Good Stuff Stamp Set, Good Stuff Die, A Bunch Stamp Set, A Bunch Die, Lacy Layers Die What Katie Says: I was inspirited by the colors in the challenge photo as well as the beautiful mason jar floral arrangements. I stamped and die cut images from the Good Stuff (http://waffleflower.com/product/good-stuff-stamp-set/) and A Bunch (http://waffleflower.com/product/a-bunch-stamp-set/) stamp sets. I water colored the jar and flowers and allowed everything to dry before adhering the flowers to the jar, adding the sentiment, and a small twine bow. I added the stamped image to a mat that I cut with the Lacy Layers Die. Lorena Canto Products: Lotus Stamp Set, Congrats Stamp Set What Lorena Says: For my card, I was inspired in the florals, the beautiful colors and the overall "gold" halo of the inspiration image, which is absolutely stunning! I stamped one of the blooms from Lotus stamp set, masked it and stamped it again twice. I also used the masking technique to stamp the stems. Once I has all my stamping done, I watercolored the flowers with distress inks, and added a light blue outline to male the images pop. For the sentiment I stamped and white heat embossed the "Celebrate" from Congrats stamp set on a strip of gold cardstock. A few clear sequins finish off the card. Ekaterina Oleynik (Guest) Products: DT Mix Stamp Set What Ekaterina Says: For this card I used the lovely DT Mix Stamp Set. I started by stamping a wreath with the flower stamps. I colored them using Chameleon markers. I used my diecut machine to cut a window in a panel of pale green cardstock. I used foam adhesive to adhere this to a white card base and then stamped the sentiment into the center. I added the floral wreath to finish it all off.
