Products Leafy Stamp Set Good Stuff Die Doily Square Die

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.

Products Tribal Bear Stamp Set Tiny Die Trio

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 :)

Shona Chambers

Products Doily Square Die Perfect Word Die Congrats Stamp Set

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!!

[Watch It Wednesday] Painted & Stamped Stripe Background - Sabrina Alery

on February 25, 2015
DesignTeamHeadshots-Sabrina Perfect-Painted-Stripes-Waffle-Flower-Crafts-Sabrina-Alery-1 Hi guys! It’s Sabrina with your Watch it Wednesday video. Today I was in the mood for a little experimenting and tried out a background created by painting and stamping some simple stripes. Using supplies in a freehand sort of method, like painting, always makes me really nervous! Once you put it down on paper, there’s no repositioning or turning back. Perfect-Painted-Stripes-Waffle-Flower-Crafts-Sabrina-Alery-2 If that describes you too, don’t be afraid to experiment. You may end up with something that looks great and that you love! And if it’s not perfect, use my tricks for disguising those imperfections. ☺

Take a Challenge with Kim Kesti

on January 19, 2015
Hello everyone! Kim Kesti is here with a card made for our current Waffle Flower Challenge! DesignTeamHeadshots-KimKesti Kim says,
While I love everything about this month's Photo Inspiration, it was really the colors that I decided to focus on. This trendy mix of colors is not one that I would normally put together, but hey! I guess that is why this is called a challenge, right? The avocado green color immediately brought to mind our new Potted Stamp Set, so cute! After coloring the succulents, it was easy to add in the warm rose color in the title and cacti flower and accent the set with a dash of pretty blue and purple. This is my first attempt at tackling the "multiple layered die cut" effect on my title and I love how it turned out! Not to mention that the Perfect Word Die is, um, pretty perfect! Thanks for taking a peek at my challenge card!
Potted1_Kesti We love the soft colors on Kim's watercolored card. We also love that she is not afraid to cover part of her colored image with a word die! The layered "perfect" word diecuts turned out so cute! And here is our current challenge photo that inspired Kim's card: Waffle Flower Challenge-20150112 Entering the challenge is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
  1. Make something based on the inspiration photo (color, composition, theme, etc.)

Introducing Monochrome + In Every Way

on January 01, 2015
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

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


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.
