DesignTeamHeadshots-KatieGehringHi Everyone! Katie here with a round up of Friday inspiration that’s proves the old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words.” That’s right friends, we’re talking emojis. These cartoon-like creations not only help us express our feelings, but they are also seemingly bent on global domination. Look around- they’re everywhere and not just in your text messages. Now you can...

Eat feelings for breakfast…

Make breakfast more fun with some waffles and strategically arranged fruit. source

Love your walls

Emojis + marquee lighting… does it get any trendier than this? Emoji Marquee source

Wear your feelings on your sleeve (or your shirt)

In case there was any question, it’s Friday and I’m in love. Monday_thru_Sunday_Emoji_White_T_shirt_1024x1024 source

Dance, Dance, Dance

One can only hope that the theme from Flashdance (Oh what a feeling) featured heavily on this party’s playlist. TheAlisonShow-Feelings-Fest-Party-30 source

My card

I decided to try my hand at an emoji card using the Warm Wishes stamp set and the Doily Square die. One of the sentiments from the Tiger and Lily stamp set contained the perfect saying. Stop by my blog to see more- including a tip for how I lined up all those smiley faces. Gehring- WFC- Emoji Smile Thanks for stopping by! Katie

Watch-It-Wednesday-square DesignTeamHeadshots-TessaHello everyone! Tessa Here! I used the adorable Faye Stamp Set along with the Doily Square Die to make this card.  I stamped Faye onto the diecut square and then colored her with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Gamsol for blending her all out.

Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Marcie, Daria and Shona are hereto share their takes on the January Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our challenge too!

Ong York Tee

Using Rock My World Die Set, Good Stuff Die Set, Calendar Stamp Set, Winter Blend Inkpad
What York Tee Says: I created two of my very own one-of-a-kind stencils using Rock My World Die Set and Good Stuff Die Set. I die cut the rocks all over a 41/2"x 6" cardstock randomly and I called it Rock Tee's World. I used the Rock Tee's World stencil, a few shades of purple inks and color shine mist to create the patterned rock background for my birthday card. Then, I used the stencil created by using Good Stuff Die Set to add a little touch for my calendar. WFC- 1-18-York Tee

Isha Gupta

Using Doily Square Die, In Every Way Stamp Set, Congrats Stamp Set
What Isha Says: I used the die to make my stencil and then sponged to create an almost one layer card :) WFC-1-18-Isha Gupta

Tessa Wise

Using Tribal Pattern Die, Amazing Word Die, Tribal Bear Stamp Set
What Tessa Says: I created a stencil by cutting the Tribal Pattern Die out of acetate. Using washi tape to hold it in place, I blended ink from the Hero Arts Grape Purple Ombre ink pad over the stencil and on to the cardstock below. The stenciling left a soft pattern of the intricate design on my card. WFC-1-18-Tessa Wise

Inspiration from the Challenge Team – January 4

on January 04, 2016
Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Annette, Shelly, and Laura Jane are here, along with our previous challenge winner Quyen Ngo to share their takes on the January Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our challenge too!

Annette Allen

Using: Monochrome Stamp SetDoily Square DieWilly and Friends Die WFC-1-04-Annette Allen
What Annette Says: I first die cut Waffle Flowers Crafts: Doily Square Die and then used it as a stencil. Using dabblers I added this fun colorful blend of colors. I then die cut the middle using the Doily Square Die and created a fun window almost like if you were going to create a shaker card just minus the sequins. Finishing off with rounding the corners.

Shelly Kurth

Using: In Every Way Stamp SetLoved Stamp SetTiny Wings Die WFC-1-04-Shelly Kurth
What Shelly Says: For my stenciling, I chose to make my own stencil using the Tiny Wings die. I took a piece of scrap paper and one by one placed the butterfly where I wanted it and ran it through my die cutting machine. Thus giving me my stencil.

Laura Jane

Using: Magical Stamp SetHoliday Labels: MerryIn Every Way Stamp Set; Surface - Tag Die - Scallop Add-on WFC-1-04-Laura Jane
What Laura Says: For my card I started out with a stencil made from the Tag Scallop Die. To create a "window", I inked it up with Distress Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves. Then I added several snowflakes and trees, embossed in different colors, for a wintery scene. Finished it off with the Magical Die in Silver paper:)

[Guest] Quyen Ngo

Using: Bowtiful Stamp Set WFC-1-14-Guest Quyen Ngo
What Quyen Says: I used distress inks in peacock feathers and tumbled glass to sponge on a template. I then repositioned the template slightly offset and used a white gelly roll pen to trace over the spaces. After the ink was dried, I stamped the sentiment and bow image (from Waffle Flower bowtiful stamp set) in VersaFine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As it was a simple card, to finish, I rounded the outer edges and put on some gems in random places for a little sparkle.

Magical Card by Lorena

DesignTeamHeadshots-LorenaCantoHello friends! Lorena here with a Christmas card that is probably one of my favorites ever! I played with different Waffle Flower Crafts products to show you how great they mix. Can you spot how many different ones I used? magical1 I’ve been wanting to use the gorgeous lace tape from the Fun Finds section for some time, and this was the perfect project. I adhered a few strips of the tape to a piece of cardstock, and die cut it with the Doily Square die. Tada! Christmas ornaments! The bows come from Stocking die. magical 2 Before adhering the ornaments and the silver cord to the card I heat embossed a sentiment from Magical stamp set. magical 3 And that’s it! I love the little dots around the ornaments. Nothing can beat a well designed die, right? What about you? Are you making time for Christmas crafting? It’s definitely one of the things I love from the Season. Thank you so much for stopping by!

DesignTeamHeadshots_MaylineHello crafty friends! It’s Mayline here today to share my card for this month’s Waffle Flower challenge. Waffle Flower Challenge-20150427 When I saw the inspiration photo, I wanted to get a big gold framed mirror for my bedroom. Unfortunately, my room is too small for a big mirror like this. I cannot have this beautiful mirror in real life but I can put one on a card! I am also drawn to the other details in the photo: flowers, pots and bottles on the drawer dresser! Isn’t it a interesting combination? I incorporated this look on my cards. They are simple and clean cards that are easy and fun to make! Here’s a quick video to show you how I made the cards.

Aren't they gorgeous? challenge-card-by-mayline-1 Doily Square Die is perfect to use as gold frames on cards. I also used the new Congrats Stamp Set (bow ties), Doily Circle Stamp Set (sentiments) and one of my favorite stamp sets: Riverside Stamp Set (jars and lantern). challenge-card-by-mayline-2 Can you see the small hearts in the bow-tied bottles? I stamped them using Summer Blend Inkpad, the color numbers are 14(Waterfall), 13(Malibu) and 10(Wild Orchid). challenge-card-by-mayline-3 challenge-card-by-mayline-4 Don’t forget to check out this month's challenge and the new products released in April.
