Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Daria, Marcie and Shona are here to share their takes on this month’s Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our September challenge too! wfc-201609-photo Marcie Sharp Products: Balloon Messages Stamp Set Balloon Messages Die Bowtiful Stamp Set Magical Stamp Set Magical Word Die Doily Circle Stamp Set Sentiments Die Daydreaming Ink Happy Go Lucky Ink wfc-9-12-marcie-sharp What Marcie Says: The inspiration photo this month brings celebrations to mind and I wanted to create a card that channelled fun and excitement. I trimmed my base slightly narrower than 4" so the balloons could over-hang and still fit in a standard A2 envelope easily. Sparkly silver embossing powder helps the Magical sentiment shine. This card screams party-time! Shona Chambers Products: Celebrate Word Die Balloon Messages Stamp Set Congrats Stamp Set Waffle Flower Inks – New Fish in pond, You said what?, Safe Choice, Daydreaming and Coffee Loves Milk wfc-9-12-shona-chambers What Shona Says: I stamped each balloon twice with Waffle Flower inks. To get the aqua colour I stamped first with ‘Daydreaming’ and then overtop with ‘New Fish in Pond’. I fussy cut all the balloons out and popped them up on foam tape. The ‘celebrate’ was die-cut from gold cardstock with a few from white cardstock to give it stability. The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in gold. Daria Grushina Products: In Every Way Stamp Set With Love Die Tiny Trio Dies wfc-9-12-daria-grushina1 wfc-9-12-daria-grushina2 What Daria Says: My starting point was the garland. It is so bright and beautiful on the inspiration photo. So, I took the smallest flower from In Every Way Stamp Set and made my own... To incorporate some glass texture, I made the card half transparent using an acetate. While adding little glittery hearts, I though about using the second piece of Tiny Heart Die on a string. That is how the second card was born. I am not sure, but it is possible, I saw something similar... but, unfortunately, couldn't find the original... I finish up both cards with the sentiment from With Love DIe. Thank you for stopping by! Join the fun by linking your projects here!
