York Tee

Products Doily Circle Die Feather More Die Tiny Twine Bow Die
What York Tee Says: I started with die cutting the Doily Circle Die from coordinating cardstock and patterned papers. I “Puzzled” and replaced the cut pieces with the cardstock piece cut earlier, using tape on the back side of the Doily Circle to keep the inlaid piece in place. To inlaid the Doily to the heart shaped frame, I cut out the inner heart shaped frame, overlay the Doily that I puzzled earlier to the frame, die cut them with the same heart shaped frame lit. Repeat the steps of inlaid die cutting for the remaining outer heart shaped frame and Mini Twine Bow. Then, I cut Feathers in a separate white card base, and inlay the shimmering gold Feathers into the opening. Lastly, I “overlay” (cut and inlaid) the whole heart shaped frame that I completed earlier to the card based.

Tessa Wise

Products Rain Check Stamp Set Partly Cloudy Die Flower Circles Die
What Tessa Says: I diecut some patterned paper with the largest circle from the Flower Circle Die as a base for my sunny sky. Next, I cut out the cloud shape from the edges of the circle. I also diecut the cloud from white cardstock and layed it into the area I had cut from the circle. I love how the clouds go over the edge of the circle! I also inlaid the sun layer, cutting it out of orange and yellow cardstock and inlaying the center of the sun.

York Tee

I used both regular and reverse masking techniques on this card. I die cut several feathers in varied styles and sizes to use as masks.  I also used the negative diecuts for reverse masking. I stamped some feathers and blended over them on white paper with inks using sponge dauber.

I used liquid masking fluid to mask the chain before stamping the pine leaves. I masked the stocking using post it before I stamped the gifts.

I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo! I masked a circle cutout on my kraft colored cardbase and added some rose colored ink to the center to create an ombre look. I stamped the leaf over the top in the same color ink.

Faber-Castell + Waffle Flower Inspiration Week – Day 5

Hello everyone! Welcome to day 5 of Faber-Castell and Waffle Flower Inspiration Week! We team up with our friends at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft to bring you an entire week of mixed-media inspiration! Blog-hop-badge-Faber-Castell-Waffle-Flower We have Sabrina here today! DesignTeamHeadshots-Sabrina Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset There are many graduations coming up quickly, so for today’s project, I pulled out a brand new sentiment set along with an older favorite from my Waffle Flower Crafts collection. The Feather More Stamp set was sending the artsy, mixed-media vibe that the Faber-Castell products were inspiring, and the Congrats Stamp and Die set have the perfect sentiments. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset The background was creating by coloring with two shades of pink Gelatos® and blending before adding a layer of thick Whipped Spackle through a stencil. I used the same technique with the feather die cuts before stamping on top with the coordinating stamps. The Big Brush pens are great for coloring stamps and gives a bit of a watercolor effect. Layer everything up with some foam adhesive for extra dimension and texture. I love how easily a sheet of white paper can be transformed and how well these products compliment one another! Supplies:

Make Easy Gift Boxes and Tags with Kim Kesti

Kesti_WF_Gift Wrap Hello everyone! Kim Kesti here! Super excited to be part of Waffle Flower Crafts Twelve Days of Gift Giving event. Christmas is one of the rare times that I really think and plan ahead for my gifts AND my gift wrap. In fact, I quite often will buy the majority of my wrapping paper and tissue during the After Holiday sales. Hey, you can’t beat 50-75% off! I also choose a “theme” each year for my gift wrap. I don’t stress about matching everything, but I love coordinated packages under the tree. This year, I am going with a navy blue and silver theme. I also love anything with feathers lately, so I am determined to use the adorable Waffle Flower Crafts Feather More Stamp Set on a lot of my Christmas projects! For my first project, I used the Feather More Stamp set to create my own patterned paper. I stamped feathers from the set all over a basic piece of white cardstock, then I added the little confetti dots from the Holiday Labels – Merry Stamp Set. Can you spot them in the bottom corner of the set? I love little “extras” like this on my sets. The dots really add depth to my patterned paper. Kesti_WF_Gift Wrap2 To create the tag for this little box I stamped the round label from the Holiday Labels - Merry Stamp Set using Silver Delicata ink. While the ink was still wet, I sprinkled extra fine glitter on the stamped image. Kesti_WF_Gift Wrap3 When the image was dry, I die cut it and layered it with a blue cardstock circle. I love how simple and easy this is! I plan to recreate this tag many times for my different packages. (Love that is has space to add my own greeting, too!) Kesti_WF_Gift Wrap4 I used the handy We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board to create my boxes. This punch board is super easy to use, just follow the sizes printed right on the board to make your own adorable boxes. Love how this feather paper turned out! Another tip: try using inexpensive library rings to attach your tags! Cute! Kesti_WF_Gift Wrap5 My second box was also created using the Gift Box Punch Board. This time, I punched glitter paper from Teresa Collins and added some feathers for accents. I stamped and glittered the feathers using the same technique as my first tag. Then, I stamped my cute sentiment and die cut it using the Holiday Labels - Merry Stamp Set and coordinating die: Holiday Label 1 Die. For the outer circle, I used the adorable pierced circle from the Flower Circles Die Set. Thanks for taking a peek at my gift boxes and tags. I’m very inspired by the whole design team and can’t wait to see what else will be shared during this Twelve Days of Gift Giving event! Kim Kesti

Tribal Thank You Stamp Set

MSRP $15.99 The artwork in today's sets were illustrated by Mia Charro. We gave Mia the theme: "In the Woods" and got some very cool wild life images back. They were different from what we had in mind but we loved the images and wanted to make them into stamps. we thought and thought about what sentiments could go with the images and finally settled on a tribal theme. We asked Mia to add a dreamcather to the set and we were good to go! Did you know that a dreamcather is used to caught the bad dreams for one's protection? 271014 Tribal Thank You Stamp Set
