I stamped the bear image first in center. Using masking paper I stamped the bear again and covered so I could create this fun feather wreath around the bear. Stamp the feather image twice on masking paper and trim. Stamp cover..stamp cover. You can use the same masking paper several times.

Shelly Kurth
I started by stamping on my leaves on multiple post it notes and cutting them out for the masks. After, I stamped my first leaf on my card where I wanted it. Then used a mask and stamped on my next leaf. I continued this process until I was happy with the amount of leaves I had and being sure to leave some space to add my monkeys in.

[Guest] Bear Special Friend Card by Kay Miller

Hello everyone! Waffle Flower friend Kay Miller is on the blog today! Kay rocked our Tribal Bear Stamp Set and matching dies. If you missed her other card, you can find it here! KayM-TribalBear Hello! I am thrilled to be guesting with Waffle Flower this month! For my card today, I used the Tribal Bear stamp set and matching dies. I first created a background by stamping  the rug pattern across my white panel in a diagonal pattern with a light grey ink. Next, I stamped the bear and feathers onto watercolor paper, with waterproof ink, and watercolored them with Peerless watercolors. I cut them out with the matching dies, and adhered them to my panel with foam tape. Next I stamped the three separate sentiments onto dark brown card stock, embossed them with white embossing ink and cut them out like  banners. I adhered these to my panel with foam tape as well. Lastly I added the whole white panel to a top folded A2 size card base. KayM-TribalBear2 Thanks so much for stopping by, and a huge thanks to Waffle Flower for having me as their guest today! :) - Kay   Thank you for sharing with us today, Kay! You rock!

Polar Bear Christmas Card

DesignTeamHeadshots-LorenaCanto Hello, Waffle Flower friends! Lorena here with a little idea to stretch some of the stamps from our latest release. I should probably be posting Halloween ideas, but I’ve decided to skip that and embrace an early Christmas spirit. Actually, if I were in charge, it would be Christmas all year round. Who’s with me? *wink*   Ok, so let’s talk today’s card. A couple of days ago I had a lightbulb moment and decided that the little guy from Tribal Bear stamp set would make an awesome polar bear. And it did! I stamped the bear, die cut it with the coordinating die set and added some festive green and red to his necklace. bearBut then (and believe me, this doesn’t happen often) I had a second lightbulb moment. Would the cutie Santa hat from Stocking stamp set fit on the bear’s head? Well… it did! I also used the Stocking die to cut the hat and colored it with Copic markers. Isn’t it wonderful when a crafty idea turns out awesome? bear 2The sentiment also comes from Stocking stamp set. As for the background, I masked a snow drift, sponged light blue ink and then added the falling snow using a stencil and white texture paste. Now that I think of it, I barely see people using it anymore… is it “totes 2014” and I’m completely out of the loop? Or can it be considered a classic now? bear 3Anyhow, I had lots of fun making this card and putting the versatile new Waffle Flower stamps to work. Thanks so much for visiting! Thank you for sharing with us today, Lorean! Find time to create and make something today!

[Guest] Magical Birthday Card by Kay Miller

Hello everyone! Waffle Flower friend Kay Miller is on the blog today! We are so glad to see some of our seasonal products used on a birthday card! KayM-TribalPattern Hello! I am thrilled to be guesting with Waffle Flower this month! For my first card I used the Tribal Pattern die, The Tribal Bear stamp set, and the Magical stamp set. I started by blending Distress inks onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Mustard Seed, and Spiced Marmalade. I then speckled it with water and some of the same colors that I had used to blend, then let this dry very well. I then cut the Tribal Patterned die out, and I glued this to the front of my top folded A2 size card base. I stamped the feathers from the Tribal Bear stamp set onto some of the paper that I had used the Distress inks on, and embossed this with white embossing powder. I cut those out with the matching dies and adhered them to my card with foam tape. I then stamped the two sentiments from the Magical stamp set onto some dark brown card stock, and embossed them with white embossing powder. I cut those out, and adhered them below the feathers with foam tape. KayM-TribalPattern2 - Kay   Thank you for sharing with us today, Kay! Your creation is delightful as always!
