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.

Using: Tribal Bear Stamp Set; Tribal Thank You Stamp Set; Tribal Bear Die

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.

Take a Challenge with Lorena (1 Card + 2 Tags)

Hello everyone! We've noticed that Tribal Thank You stamp set is being ordered quite often lately so we wanted to share more ideas for this set! We challenged our design team member Lorena to combine this set with our current Challenge! Isn't it a challenge?! Let's check out what she's created for us! 271014 Tribal Thank You Stamp SetWaffle Flower Challenge-20150309 DesignTeamHeadshots-LorenaCanto Happy Monday, friends! Lorena here with some new ideas for Tribal Thank You stamp set. This set was released last October but if you thought it was just intented for Thanksgiving or Fall projects, I hope with today’s ideas I’ll prove you wrong J Let’s start with a card. My inspiration came from the colors from the current Waffle Flower Crafts Challenge (you still have time to enter!). Here, I started stamping a graphic pattern with the small rectangle pattern stamp from the set. Who would say you could get such a big impact from this tiny stamp? Tribal card 1 Next, I die cut the rectangle from Surface – Tag Die – Scallop Add-on twice from vellum. On one of the pieces I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, and then I adhered them together slightly offset and placed them over one of those tangled floss ornaments that are so popular these days. Dang, this gold floss is a really wild thing, it was hard to tame it so it would stay in place, ha! Tribal card 2 And here’s one final pic of our card happily paired with an envelope and ready to travel in the post. Tribal card 3 I also made two tags with Tribal Thank You stamp set. I had one of those epiphany moments when I realized that the tree from the set pairs beautifully with the pots from Planted stamp set with just a little masking. Both of the tags were die cut with the largest die in Surface – Tag Die – Starter kit. I also made coordinating hole reinforcers stamping the die cut reinforcers with the polka dot circle from Flower Circles stamp set. I love the whimsical touch the polka dots add, but if you want to make this faster, you can simply cut the reinforcer from colored cardstock. In this first tag, I used the leaves and branches from the tree and made some selective inking so I could stamp the “thank you” in two lines. Tribal tag 1 For the second tag I used the tree roots and I embellished the pot with a heart from Tribal Thank You covered with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from the same set. Tribal tag 2And here they are happily hanging out side by side. Tribal tags 3 There you are! Three Spring colored projects to brighten the new week. Thanks for stopping by! --- Wow is all we can say! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us, Lorena! We hope you can find time to create and make something today!

Day-12-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Joni Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 12 of our Twelve Days of Gift Giving event! How time flies when you are having fun, right? Today we have our design team member Joni Andaya here! We love that Joni kept it to the basics: stamps and dies - for her project today!

Embossing a Gift Bag with Joni Andaya

Hello Everyone, welcome back to the 12th day of Gift Giving here at Waffle Flower Crafts. My project today is very simple to make: embossing a paper bag that I purchased from my local crafts store. I used Waffle Flower Crafts stamps and dies to make this project special. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-1-photoI first stamped the paper bag with Versamark ink to prep for the white embossing powder using the Tribal Thank You Stamp Set (tree). This will also look gorgeous with colored embossing powder. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-2 Next, I poured the white embossing powder on the bag, then heat it with a heat gun. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-3 Then I created a tag to go with my gift bag using Flower Circle Die Set. I die-cut the flower die twice, one for the background for my tag and 2nd to create a window for my tag. I used pencil mark on the background as a guide to help me where to stamped the sentiment “a gift for you” from stamp set A Homemade Christmas. I then distressed both circles, window and background. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-4 Next, I added some leaves on the tag from the Holiday Labels - Give Thanks stamp set and die-cut using the Holiday Label 1 Die. Then I added a hole on top of the tag using the tiny hole reinforce from Surface Tag Die Started Kit. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-5 To finish off the tag I added some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and natural twine from May Arts. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-6 Here’s the full view of the gift bag. gift-wrap-with-joni-andaya-7 Thank you so much for stopping by!

A Simple Thank You Card & the Winners!

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a card I made last night and to announce the winners of our Instagram Thank You Giveaway. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card I was browsing our store and thought that I should make a real sample from our idea sheets. And I picked the very first one that came up: the idea sheet for 100% Love Stamp Set. This is a fun little 2"x3" set that can add a lot to our projects! 271016z 100 percent Love Stamp Set Idea Sheet I pulled out the set as well as the Surface - Tag Stamp Set that has the solid mini tag image to pick some colors. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-picking-colors I catalog all my ink colors on a 1 page color chart. I have multiple charts for each brand but you can also download a blank page for your own ink collection here: Download a blank hand color chart here. I first stamped the thank you circle on a piece of sticky note and cut out to use as a mask. Then I stamp the circle again on the front of my white card base. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-mask Put the mask on top of the other circle to "mask" it and stamp the tag image on top. Remember when masking, always stamp the image that will be on top first. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-masking I used dye ink for the circle and the tag because they dry fast. Then I needed a pigment ink that will dry on top of the surface so the color can show up. Electric Pink for the tag string! wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-pigment-ink Then I finished the card with a sentiment "for everything" from our Tribal Thank You Stamp Set and a few hearts from 100% Love Stamp Set. Can't help but bling them up with a glitter pen! wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-closeup And the sentiment is exactly what I want to say to you guys! Thank you for being excited, being supportive and helping us spread the word! You are the best! winner-announced

Tribal Thank You Stamp Set

MSRP $15.99 The artwork in today's sets were illustrated by Mia Charro. We gave Mia the theme: "In the Woods" and got some very cool wild life images back. They were different from what we had in mind but we loved the images and wanted to make them into stamps. we thought and thought about what sentiments could go with the images and finally settled on a tribal theme. We asked Mia to add a dreamcather to the set and we were good to go! Did you know that a dreamcather is used to caught the bad dreams for one's protection? 271014 Tribal Thank You Stamp Set
