What Annette Says: I first die cut Waffle Flowers Crafts: Doily Square Die and then used it as a stencil. Using dabblers I added this fun colorful blend of colors. I then die cut the middle using the Doily Square Die and created a fun window almost like if you were going to create a shaker card just minus the sequins. Finishing off with rounding the corners.In Every Way Stamp Set; Loved Stamp Set; Tiny Wings Die
What Shelly Says: For my stenciling, I chose to make my own stencil using the Tiny Wings die. I took a piece of scrap paper and one by one placed the butterfly where I wanted it and ran it through my die cutting machine. Thus giving me my stencil.Magical Stamp Set; Holiday Labels: Merry; In Every Way Stamp Set; Surface - Tag Die - Scallop Add-on
What Laura Says: For my card I started out with a stencil made from the Tag Scallop Die. To create a "window", I inked it up with Distress Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves. Then I added several snowflakes and trees, embossed in different colors, for a wintery scene. Finished it off with the Magical Die in Silver paper:)
[Guest] Quyen NgoUsing: Bowtiful Stamp Set
What Quyen Says: I used distress inks in peacock feathers and tumbled glass to sponge on a template. I then repositioned the template slightly offset and used a white gelly roll pen to trace over the spaces. After the ink was dried, I stamped the sentiment and bow image (from Waffle Flower bowtiful stamp set) in VersaFine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As it was a simple card, to finish, I rounded the outer edges and put on some gems in random places for a little sparkle.___ Aren't these cards fantastic?

3. Wild Flower
My CardI was most inspired by the wildflower bouquet! The color combo is comforting and energetic at the same time - just how I feel about my mom! <3 I cut a bunch of the foliage from our Loved Stamp Set and flowers from A Bunch Stamp Set from kraft cardstock and stamped them in several different colors to form a bouquet look I liked. I cut the standard A2 size card base down to 3.75" x 5.5" so I can let the doily cut by our Doily Circle Die stick out. Nothing compares to making a card for someone you love!

I bet Debby is a great story teller! She just knows how much to leave you hang and keeps you coming back for more! With a little help of masking, she's created this beautiful scene with very little stamping. A proof that sometimes, less is more!
by Gayatri Murali (blogged here)
The colors on Gayatri's card made me WOW! The blues in this card totally make it pop but it is the perfect balance between the oranges and blues (warm and cool) that makes it one of our favorites! And have you noticed the light gray hearts behind the sentiment? It is all in the details!
by Aga (blogged here)
Aga's card reminded me of those fancy stationery designs that you can find at some cool boutique style stores. I can feel the gentle wind blowing in the flower field. It makes me smile. If you haven't tried stamping on a colored background, this card may just inspired you to do so?
by Keren Baker (blogged here)
I was first hit by how fresh and clean this card is! A beautiful flower cluster with that one black flower tucked behind to give it weight. All the dashed lines and details that Keren added with a white gel pen added so much handmade feel to it. Truly one of a kind!
by Keren Baker (blogged here)
I admit, I want to stamp a Christmas wreath using the leaves from this set. Just like what Keren did on this last card! Isn't it perfect? I love how much detail and depth this card has while retaining a clean look!
Thank you for creating such beautiful cards with our products, ladies!
I hope that you are inspired to create something soon?
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
