[Guest] Thinking of You Card by Stephanie Klauck

on May 10, 2016
Hi everyone, it's Stephanie here with one more guest post sharing a card I created with the Riverside stamp set from Waffle Flower. I wanted to create a night time scene with the stamps so I started by masking off a circle area and inking the background with various shades of blue and black distress inks to set the area for my scene. I went darker on the top and a little lighter on the bottom to make it look like the stars were casting some light on the ground. WF_ThinkingofYou Once I had all of the inking done, I stamped all of the images on top with black ink to make them look like silhouettes. I stamped the river first and then added the mountains, the stars and the grass detail. I also used black pen to draw a line directly under the mountains to separate the ground and the sky in the scene. WF_ThinkingofYouClose I stamped the sentiment from the Lacy Flowers stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock and then I trimmed it down and adhered it over a strip of vellum before adding it to the card. I trimmed down the stamped panel and added it to a white card base with strip of silver glitter paper and black and white striped patterned paper piece. I then added some clear sequins with silver stickles scattered around the finished scene. Thanks so much for joining me on the Waffle Flower blog! I have loved creating and sharing cards with all of you the past few months.
Thank you for joining us, Stephanie!

[Guest] Awesome Friend Card by Stephanie Klauck

on May 06, 2016
Hi everyone it's Stephanie here with another card to share! For today's card I used the Lacy Flower stamp set to create an embossed resist flower on my card. I stamped the large lacy flower onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Once it was embossed, I used an ink blending tool and distress inks to add colour to the entire background. When I had all of the inking complete, I spritzed water on the entire panel and dabbed off the excess with paper towels to create a distressed look. Awesome I trimmed down the stamped and inked panel slightly smaller than the card base in width and then cut a diagonal edge on the bottom. I adhered the panel to the card base and added a strip of gold glitter cardstock to the bottom. To create the sentiment, I diecut the Awesome word die from the same gold glitter cardstock that I used for the strip and I also cut it from black cardstock. I adhered the two together with the gold one on top to create a shadow effect. AwesomeClose I stamped and white heat embossed the word friend onto a black piece of cardstock, trimmed it into a strip and adhered the Awesome word on top. I adhered the whole sentiment over the embossed flower and added some clear glitter to the flower with a clear glitter marker. I completed the card by adding some clear sequins with gold stickles in the center to match the gold glitter strip and word. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back later this month with one more card to share as a guest on the Waffle Flower blog.

[Guest] Lacy Flower Card by Jodi Collins

on May 03, 2016
Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! It's Jodi here with you today, and I am thrilled to be here today guesting on the Waffle Flower Blog! I have a card to share with you featuring the gorgeous Lacy Flower stamp set! I just adore this gorgeous set! WF Lacy Flower I wanted to focus on this amazing image, and I kept my card pretty simple, letting the image do all the work! I stamped it onto a panel of X-Press It Blending Card and then, using Copic Markers, colored the image. After adding the color, I gave it a bit of shimmer using a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker. I cut a strip of black card stock, and then, using Versamark Ink, I stamped the sentiment "FROM ALL OF US" and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I then added the sentiment to the main panel with dimensional tape. I added a mat to the main panel and added it to a black card base using more dimensional tape. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots, picking up the colors used in the focal image. I had so much fun creating this card, and am so honored to be here today! Have a happy day!

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!

[Guest] Wish You Were Here Card by Stephanie Klauck

Hello everyone! It's Stephanie here again with another card to share using stamps and dies from Waffle Flower. I am a camper and love the outdoors so I knew I had to have the Riverside stamp set and dies as soon as I saw them. I love all of the fun little details in the stamp set.. there are so many options for creating a bunch of outdoor themed card designs. WF_Here For my card, I used the dies to create the river and the trees by diecutting them from white cardstock and using distress inks and an ink blending tool to add colour to them. Once I had them all inked up, I spritzed some water on top and then dabbed the pieces with a paper towel. Since distress inks react with water, some of the colour lifted and created a fun distressed look. I think it goes perfectly with the outdoor theme of the card. I thought it would be fun to create a Polaroid with the scene I was creating to make it look like a photo. The sentiment I used has a great handwritten look to it, so I thought it worked perfectly since it looks like it was written on the photo. I created the Polaroid by cutting down two pieces of cardstock to the right sizing and then I created my scene on the 3"x3" piece before adhering it to the background panel. WF_Here2 I stamped the tent image directly on the background scene once I had finished adding the inking for the sky and ground and then I stamped it a second time on white cardstock. I used my distress inks and ink blending tool once again to add colour to the tent and then I used my scissors to cut the image out along the inked edge. I adhered it directly over the stamped tent in the scene so you could still all of the tent strings and pegs. WF_Here3 I adhered all of the trees along the edge of the ground and overlapped then as I went to make it look like a full forest in the background of the scene. I also stamped some of the little bug images near the trees for some added detail. To complete the card I added clear glitter to the water and some of the trees with a Spectrum Noir clear glitter marker. I love how it makes it look like the sun is glistening off the water. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this fun, outdoorsy card! I'll be back next month with a couple more cards to share. --- Thank you for sharing such a cute and uplifting card with us, Stephanie! We love the glittery water! So dreamy!

[Guest] I Love You This Much Card by Torico

on April 19, 2016
Hi everyone! It’s Torico here. I don’t know about you, but I often ignore tiny accessory stamps in a stamp set. So I decided to challenge myself to use the tiny heart stamps in the Monochrome stamp set to create a focal point of my card. WFC160419-1 I cut out a scalloped rectangle panel using the Lacy Layers Die, then stamped the tiny hearts with four colors of dye inks to create a pile of hearts. I added some white dots to the hearts using a white gel pen. WFC160419-2 I stamped a mouse on the top of the pile with dark brown ink and stamped a speech bubble with aqua ink. The sentiment is from the On My Mark stamp set. I thought it was a perfect match for the pile of hearts. ☺ Thank you for stopping by! --- Thank you for sharing such a cute and loving card with us, Torico!   Find time to create and make something today!

[Guest] Forever Friends Flower Window Card by Stephanie

on April 12, 2016
Hi everyone! It’s Stephanie here and I am excited to be back on the Waffle Flower blog sharing another card I've created. For today's card I really wanted to make the largest Lacy Flower the focus of my card so I decided to create a fun acetate panel for the flower to adhere to so you can see right through to the inside of the card. ForeverFriends I first diecut the lacy flower from a white cardstock panel, just to get the outer shape of the flower. I then adhered a piece of acetate behind it and layered another piece of white cardstock (with a flower cut out as well) over the acetate on the inside of the card so you can't see any of the adhesive on the acetate piece. Once I had the acetate piece done, I diecut the lacy flower from a piece of aqua glitter paper and adhered the actual flower piece (after poking out all of the insides) directly into the open area on the acetate. Once it's adhered it kind of looks like it's floating and you can see inside the card. Friends2 Once I had the flower part done, I adhered a couple strips of patterned paper down the left side of the card and then I stamped the sentiment from the Lacy Flower stamp set onto a white cardstock strip that I adhered over the center area of the flower. I stamped some of the hearts from the same stamp set, coloured them in to match the card and cut them out with my scissors. I adhered them on to the card front with some clear sequins to complete the card. Thanks so much for visiting today! I'll be back later this month with another card to share! ;)

[Guest] Welcome Spring Card by Anna Kossakovskaya

on April 07, 2016
Hello everyone! Anna here! Welcome Spring Card I combined Welcome Spring stamp set with the cute and fun little monkey from Willy & Friends stamp set. I think everyone who has seen these two sets together would want to put the cute little animals on the monkey's head. I also decided to put the monkey into the basket (- I mean, just look at his eyes! he must be eyeing it for a long time!). Bunny and kitty were on his back and got in the basket too. As a final touch, I added the little hat from Willy & Friends to the kitty's head. Welcome Spring Card closeup I made the background with the tulips from Welcome Spring set using no-line coloring technique. I stamped them with light-grey inks and then colored and blended the background with green and blue Distress inks. Welcome Spring Card Side -Anna Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Anna! Your scene completes Willy's mischievous look! What fun!

[Guest] I Like Ewe Card by Torico

on March 29, 2016
Hi everyone! It's Torico here! I have a simple and cute card to share with you today. WFC160329-1 At the first glance I fell in love with this super cute lamb from the Welcome Spring stamp set and thought that it would be fun stacking him (her?) up. I stamped them using the masking technique, colored with Copics, and cut them out with scissors. I cut a panel of patterned paper and stamped the sentiment with dark gray ink. I also stamped the tiny heart from the set three times, colored them with Copics, and added some Glossy Accents. I matted the panel with a cream cardstock panel and adhered to a red card base. The stacked lambs were popped up with foam tape. WFC160329-2 Thank you so much for stopping by! - Torico
