Hi everyone! It's Deasy here. Today I want to share with you a fun card featuring Snail Mail Stamp Set. I also add some leaves from Hibiscus Stamp Set. I think they are cute together! I stamped and colored the images with Copics. For the sentiment, I used white embossing powder on dark brown card stock. For the background and the landscape, I used dye inks and a blending tool. I also added some clear sequins for fun. Thank you so much for stopping by and see you next week! - Melania Deasy

Hello Waffle Flower friends. I have a layout to share inspired by this month’s challenge photo inspiration.
[Video] Perfect Layout by Patricia Roebuckhttps://youtu.be/PtxYOhQMqGM Using the inspiration, I chose some of the new Waffle Flower Premium Dye inks, adding in other shades and tones of those same colors. I love the outside photo with the refreshment on the table next to the chair. Similar to the inspiration, I picked an outside photo enjoying ice cream to use along with the InstaLove Die. For some added texture, I brought in some pattern paper to use with the Chunky Chevron Die. I brought in more stamps to help set the mood of my summer layout. I have a video sharing how the layout came together.

Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Marcie, Daria, Shona and our previous Video Gust blogger Galina Filippenko are here to share their takes on the February Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our challenge too!
What Marcie Says: I have never snipped apart the super fun Doily Square Die because it's just so awesome as it is! After die-cutting it several times out of various colours and the main white panel, I pieced it all back together. The small star from the Good Stuff Die set was a perfect little piece to inlay into one of the circles. A sweet sentiment and some glitter along the bottom finish it off.
What Daria Says: I used Tiny Dies Trio to make my inlaid die-cutting and heat embossed Lovely bear from Tribal Bear Stamp Set. I think that is one of my all time favorite combination: craft+white+gold :)
What Shona Says: I used the Doily Square Die, along with the Perfect Word Die and stamps from the Congrats Stamp Set. I die-cut the middle diamond shape first and added a panel behind it before I die-cut the outer frame. That way the whole panel didn’t fall to pieces and turn into a jigsaw puzzle!!

Hello everyone! We invited our friend and coloring expert Alice Wertz to share with us today! Alice used Antique Linen Distress Ink to stamp the images and then colored them with Copic markers. She then used a brown Copic Multiliner to add the eyes and smiles to the faces.
Card 1Alice used the banana stamp from Willy & Friends Stamp Set to create a fun random background for her "3D looking" monkey on this card! How cool is that gradient coloring on the speech bubble?
Card 2On her second card, Alice watercolored her background and layered her card beautifully with a doily, a piece of washi tape and a couple of enamel dots! The color combo is just delightful!
Card 3We think *Tiger* (the shark) wants to share his strawberry cake with us! Shall we take it? LOL Alice also cut the wave line with a craft knife to tuck the shark in water! So fun!
Card 4This toucan bird card is perfection!
Card 5This lotus card is a team favorite! It showcases one of the many benefits of no-line coloring: to achieve a very realistic look! We love how Alice colored the dragonflies too! --- Thank you for sharing these amazing cards with us today, Alice! Find time to create and make something today!

Katie here. One of the micro-trends I have really been enjoying this summer is Pineapples. Tough on the outside and sweet on the inside, these tropical treats have been popping up all over. What better way to try on this trend than by tackling a DIY project or two? Check out these fun ideas:
This fabulous DIY Pineapple Lamp shade is made using plastic spoons and a plastic bottle.
I love these Pineapple ring dishes- all that’s needed is clay, a Pineapple cookie cutter, and markers or paint.
A paper lantern transforms into a pineapple piñata with some crepe paper and a little imagination.
For the kids
How sweet is this DIY drawstring backpack? This makes me want to dust off my old sewing machine and learn how to thread the bobbin!
This Dole-Whip recipe looks amazing. No Magic Kingdom admission required!
Did you notice the sweet pineapple that Nina included in the Willy and Friends stamp set? I used this stamp to DIY a fun pineapple card. Stop by my blog for more details!
Thanks for stopping by!
Thank you for sharing these wonderful DIY projects with us today, Katie! Your watercolored background is gorgeous!
