Hello everyone! Nina here! I'm very excited to share today's video. I took a ZIG class a few weeks ago and fell in love with their Clean Color Real Brush. These brushes make color blending easy! I found that these three colors are perfect for coloring the succulents from our Planted Stamp Set and Potted Stamp Set! Succulent Color Blending Kit The colors are so clean and pretty! This Succulent Color Blending Kit includes three pieces of 4"x7" Bristol paper needed for this technique.

Hello everyone! Welcome to day 1 of Waffle Flower Crafts Winter 2015 release! With Valentine's Day and Spring in mind, we've gone back to basics with our winter 2015 collection. Whether you are a trend watcher or a collector of unique designs, we have you covered! We will introduce 10 new stamp sets and 6 new dies from Jan 1 to Jan 5 with all products available in our store as well as many of our retail partners on Jan 5. [divider] We have 2 stamp sets and 2 dies for today!

Monochrome Stamp Set

waffle-flower-crafts-271022-monochrome Whether in fashion or home and interior design, monochrome is a trending classic. As for our stamp design, we wanted to have more basic sets that will work great with a simple black ink pad. We rounded up some critters that look stunning in just B&W! Monochrome Stamp Set

Ideas for Monochrome Stamp Set

Tiny Love Bubble Die

310018 Tiny Love Bubble Die We have this tiny die made to the same size of the stamp from Monochrome Stamp Set. They are perfect to transfer any of your critter cards into a love scene.

In Every Way Stamp Set

waffle-flower-crafts-271023-in-every-way Talking about basic stamps that work well with black inks? We need a good sentiment set! Growing up in the digital age, I am used to all symmetrical/uniformed fonts. But I've been learning about calligraphy lately and I start to appreciate these hand-written look. Hope they are beautiful in your eyes too!

Ideas for In Every Way Stamp Set

271023 In Every Way-02

Samples

We included a couple of flowers that are great for 2-step-stamping. The thing we like the most about these flowers is that we don't need to align them perfectly. Offsetting the two layers actually adds to the hand drawn, whimsical look! Score! wfc-2015-01-01-perfect-every-way-card wfc-2015-01-01-Gehring-In-Every-Way-2

Perfect Word Die

$5.99 310019 Word Die Perfect We couldn't help but make one of the pretty words into a die. There are so many techniques we can use this word die with! Like the fun use of negative space on Sabrina's Card here: wfc-2015-01-01-Perfect-In-Every-Way-Sabrina-Alery
"You're practically perfect in every way" - Mary Poppins
This stamp set started with this sentiment suggested by our design team member Katie Gehring! And Katie made this card to go with it! The little umbrella stamp came from our Planner Add-on: Weather 1. Isn't it perfect? wfc-2015-01-01-Gehring-In-Every-Way Head over to Katie's blog for more details! Thank you for stopping by, everyone! We are going to have videos and tutorials throughout the month to share more ways on using these products. See you tomorrow for more new sets! All products will be available in our store as well as many of our retail partners on Jan 5.
