Xyron + Waffle Flower Inspiration Week – Day 5 - Channin Pelletier

on July 29, 2016
Hello everyone! We are teaming up with our friends at Xyron to bring you some fun projects every day of the week! Don't forget to checkout the awesome giveaway prizes at the end of this post! We have Channin Pelletier on the blog today! Take it away, Channin! Xyron-Waffle-Flower-5 Hello everyone! I'm super excited to be participating in Waffle Flower's and Xyron's Inspiration Week! I had so much fun creating that I made 3 cards! Even though I made 3 different cards I did pretty much the same thing for each of them. I used the wonderful Flower Circles Inverted dies to create the circle designs. I left the dies unclipped, just like they come out of the packaging, so all the cuts would be centered every time I used them. I used the dies to cut two sets of circles out of rust, orange, mint, turquoise, and teal cardstock. I trimmed down the rust and teal paper scraps to create two 5” x 7” panels. I then glued these panels down on a 5” by 7” panel of white cardstock. WFC Xyron 3 Next, I arranged my inlaid circle sets in the color combos I wanted. I then held them in place with bits painters tape on the front and ran them through Xyron’s Create a Sticker Max machine to add adhesive to the backs of the cuts. I can be messy with glue and struggle with tape runners when working with smaller bits of paper. But the Create a Sticker Max machine made adhering my circle designs so so easy and clean, I loved using it! WFC Xyron 2 Next, I inlaid my circle design into the rust and teal panels for the front and middle cards. For my third card, I just adhered my circle designs on top of a 5” x 7” panel of rust cardstock. I then had to trim all my panels to remove the overhang from the circles. WFC Xyron 4 Next, I cut some strips of vellum, then stamped a sentiment from the Bowtiful set in black pigment ink and clear embossed it. I then stamped the sentiment again on scraps of orange, mint, and turquoise cardstock. I then trimmed these down to just the “your special day” portion of the sentiment. I then placed the vellum strips on the panels and folded the edges over and taped them down in the back. I then adhered the panels onto my card base and lastly adhered the “your special day” strips onto the vellum. Hope you enjoyed!! -- Channin

Hi everyone! It’s Torico again. I have a black and white card to share with you today. In my previous post, I tried to use the tiny accessory stamps in the Monochrome stamp set for my focal point. This time I used those stamps in another way. WFC160428-1 As you see I used the dotted line stamp for my stems and the heart stamps for my leaves. The flowers were die cut using the Flower Circles and the Flower Circles Inverted Die. I added enamel dots to the center of each flower and drew some dots with a white gel pen. WFC160428-2 After I stamped the sentiment, I trimmed the panel and adhered it to a black card base along with a strip of black card stock and another strip of patterned paper. I stamped the zebra, cut it out with scissors, and popped it up with foam adhesive. Thank you for stopping by! --- Thank you for sharing with us, Torico! We love how you achieved totally different looks with a single stamp set! Brilliant!
