[Watch It Wednesday] Easy Color Blending with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush

on February 11, 2015
Hello everyone! Nina here! I'm very excited to share today's video. I took a ZIG class a few weeks ago and fell in love with their Clean Color Real Brush. These brushes make color blending easy! I found that these three colors are perfect for coloring the succulents from our Planted Stamp Set and Potted Stamp Set! Succulent Color Blending Kit The colors are so clean and pretty! This Succulent Color Blending Kit includes three pieces of 4"x7" Bristol paper needed for this technique.

on February 07, 2015
DesignTeamHeadshots-Tessa Hello everyone! Tessa Wise here! My girls love these glow-in-the-dark stars and wanted to include them in their valentine's this year.  I tucked them away in some embossed vellum bags and decorated the outside using an out-of-this-world galaxy technique done with our Starry Night Stamp Set and Surface-Tag Die- Starter Kit.

Silly Valentine Week - [Video] Punny Cat and Dog Valentine’s by Sabrina

on February 06, 2015
DesignTeamHeadshots-Sabrina I-Like-You-This-Much-Valentines-Waffle-Flower-Sabrina-Alery-4 Hello! Its Sabrina sharing an idea for silly valentine’s with you today. I can never get enough puns, especially at Valentine’s time! There are just so many cute ones like this “I love you this……..much” sentiment included in the On My Mark stamp set. When combined with the coordinating die, it really makes for some cute mini cards! I-Like-You-This-Much-Valentines-Waffle-Flower-Sabrina-Alery-1-1   The cat and dog images are already long and stretched out but adding an accordion folded mid section makes them extra silly! I-Like-You-This-Much-Valentines-Waffle-Flower-Sabrina-Alery-2-1   There is room inside to tuck in a small treat if you wanted to hand something like this out at school, but they are cute even without something extra. I-Like-You-This-Much-Valentines-Waffle-Flower-Sabrina-Alery-3-1   I closed them with a small piece of washi tape to help create a little anticipation! It will also keep any treats contained inside. Here is a quick video for making these punny cat and dog valentine cards: http://youtu.be/opDuWST6hTo SUPPLIES - On My Mark Stamp Set - On My Mark Die Set Hoping you are enjoying silly valentine week! -Sabrina

[Watch It Wednesday] Building Letters with Tiny Image Stamps - Sabrina Alery

on January 28, 2015
LOVE-Valentine-Waffle-Flower-Crafts-Sabrina-4 DesignTeamHeadshots-SabrinaHello everyone! Sabrina here! Today I have another episode of Watch It Wednesday to share with you. Are you ever uncertain what to do with those tiny image stamps that are often included in stamp sets? This tutorial will give you one idea that I think is pretty fun. LOVE-Valentine-Waffle-Flower-Crafts-Sabrina-Alery-1 I used the small heart image (along with a few other stamps) from the DT Mix Stamp Set to build some letters for the valentine’s sentiment “LOVE.” It’s a really simple way to get more mileage out of your stamp sets and also creates a great design element on your paper crafts. Let’s take a look! Watch the video below or in HD on YouTube http://youtu.be/p_iFwLEEGMc Here is a closeup photo for you: LOVE-Valentine-Waffle-Flower-Crafts-Sabrina-Alery-2


So clever, Sabrina!!! We especially love that you created the ombre look with just one ink pad!

Rise & Shine Card From Start to Finish

rise&shine-cards I made the card on the right for our new release. It was my favorite but I made a few small changes to it and made the card on the left. I shared why and how I made the changes in the video. I also shared some tips and tricks on how to stamp the "perfect" sun rays "effortlessly". LOL This is a confession of a "lazy" perfectionist.

[Video] The Joy Card

on November 22, 2014
Hello everyone! Are you getting busier and busier for the holiday season? Waffle Flower had such an amazing feedback from you for our Fall collection released in October that we have been packing like crazy everyday for the last 1.5 month. I finally got some time this weekend to make something at my craft table and I decided to do a video. Many of you are asking for more videos and we will try, ok? I'm so new to video making and there are so much to learn. How to talk naturally? Anyway, here is my inspiration for today's card!

[Video] Stamping Basics for Planner Users

on October 30, 2014
Hello everyone! We've had some questions about the basics of stamping from our planner users so we put together a short video to show you how to use them. Stamping-Basics-for-Planner-Users   We used a personal size Filofax page in the video but the stamps can be used on any planner. We used Fresh Ink but all pigment inks that dry on top of paper should work. Feel free to leave a comment if you have more questions!
