Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Shelly, Laura Jane, Katie and Lorena are here to share their takes on this month’s Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our challenge too! wfc-201605-photo Marcie Sharp Products: Shower Stamp Set Lacy Flower Mats Die WFC 5-9 Marcie Sharp What Marcie Says: I loved the colours for this month's inspiration and based my card on them. That little bucket full of umbrellas in the bottom corner of the picture didn't escape my notice. I stamped all my elements from the Shower Stamp Set, then heat embossed the sentiment in gold. For the "clouds" I die cut one of the Lacy Flower Mats Dies several times, cut them in half, and covered them in glitter. It was a perfect way to stretch my supplies! Daria Grushina Products: Leafy Stamp Set Tribal Bear Stamp Set WFC 5-9 Daria Grushina What Daria Says: As a starting point, I decided to use the May palette. It is very unusual for me, but I love the challenge. I stamped lots of leaves from Leafy stamp set to mimic the busy photo inspiration and colored them with Copics using May color palette. In spite of brown I used copper color - I think it adds a lot of interest. I ended up with very untypical card with lots of details :) Shona Chambers Products: Loved Stamp Set Flower Circles Die WFC 5-9 Shona Chambers What Shona Says: I started off by marking the inside circle of the Flower Circle Die on the card front with pencil, so I knew where it would cut. I then stamped away with images from the Loved Stamp Set, die-cut the flower from it and then inlaid another flower from a pale blue/grey paint chip. Patricia Roebuck Products: Planner Add-On: Weather 1 Planner Add-On: Weather 2 Planner: Stay Focused Stamp Set Faye Stamp Set Willy Stamp Set WFC 5-9 Patricia Roebuck What Patricia Says: The colors, the flowers, the umbrellas, and the bright feeling from the photo inspiration, inspired me to made a shaker card using the planner stamps for the weather as the little shaker windows, welcoming the pretty spring flowers after all of the cloudy and rainy days. A great way to cheer someone up. I used the soft blue and pretty aqua/green colors from the photo for my card base. Then made the white base for the shakers smaller to leave a big border, similar to the feeling I get from the photo inspiration with lots of color and white to balance it. And, of course, I had to include a little umbrella, all closed up and saying goodbye to the rain and hello to the flowers. I colored the little fussy cut flowers from the Fay Stamp Set with Copics and Chameleon markers in colors from the photo inspiration. Guest Designer Lindsay Amrhein Products: Succulents Stamp Set WFC 5-9 Guest Lindsay Amrhein What Lindsay Says: Creating this card uses a few of my favorite techniques, including masking, and coloring. I started by stamping my images onto a white panel, and masked the flowers as I went around the edges. I colored them with Copic Markers, and sponged on a light blue ink. I stamped my sentiment, added a few sequins, and adhered my panel to a Kraft card base using foam adhesive. Masking is a great way to add dimension, and interest without making your card bulky or thick!
