Marcie Sharp

Products: Good Stuff Stamp Set, Starry Night Stamp Set, Magical Word Die What Marcie Says: Layering stamps can be so fun when perfectly crafted sets do most of the work for you! I easily stamped the jar and layers from "Good Stuff" in various ink colours, then layered some tiny stars from Starry Night over top. Choosing your ink colours carefully to make sure they layer well and work together is a must! WFC-12-14-Marcie Sharp Filled with "Magic"?! We love that Marcie carefully trimmed "Magical" word die for her sentiment!

Daria Garushina

Products: Tribal Bear Stamp Set, Leafy Stamp Set What Daria Says: I used the blanket from Tribal Bear stamp set, and stamped it with white pigment ink over kraft cardstock - that is one of my favorite techniques, and then stamped over it with different colors of inks... Love the effect :) WFC-12-14-Daria Grushina The entire Tribal Bear Stamp Set is about layering! We love Daria's choice of colors and that pop of teal and white under the sentiment!

Shona Chambers

Products: Stocking Stamp Set, Stocking Die What Shona Says: I wanted to create the look of pine branches on a mantel (from which the stocking is hung) and was going to use different green colours to get some variation but found that as I overlapped (layered) the stamping, it created darker and lighter areas on its own. WFC-12-21-Shona ChambersJust like what Shona says, one of the benefits of stamp layering is that you can get different shades of color using one ink pad! Hope you are inspired to try the stamp layering technique! Find time to create and make something today!

[Guest] Magical Holiday Cards by Kay Miller & Mom

on November 19, 2015
Hello everyone! Kay Miller is back on the blog today! --- Hello! I’m thrilled to be back guesting with Waffle Flower today! I have a card I made with the gorgeous Magical stamp set, matching dies and Magical Word die set. KayM-Magical2 To start off, using watercolor paper, I stamped the tiny row of trees down at the bottom right corner. I then took some Peerless watercolors and created my background blending the trees in just a bit and giving them that watercolored look. I set this aside to dry while I stamped the horse and flowers on watercolor paper and colored them with the same colors I used in the background. I cut these out with the matching dies and adhered them to my card with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment in black ink across the top and cut out the Magical Word die and glued that down just underneath. I added a few clear sequins to give it a festive look! KayM-Magical My Mom has horse and loves to make cards with horse stamps, so when she saw my card she wanted to create something similar. She loved this stamp set from Waffle Flower! Her card turned out so beautifully that I wanted to share it too! KKHanson-horse Thanks so much for stopping by and huge thanks to Waffle Flower for having me as their guest! --- Thank you for sharing with us today, Kay! Your mom's card is just as darling as yours! You rocked the sets!
