Hello everyone! Today I'm feeling Love! Yes! I've fell in love with Balloon Messages Stamp Set! This set is so cute and just perfect to be paired with Willy and Claire mini stamp sets.

I heat embossed the balloons, the hearts, love, xoxo, and star with white embossing powder and then blended in some distress ink. I then added some random dots using a white gel pen. And as always, I colored the images with Copic markers. I created the background by blended with distress inks and dded some clear sequins for finishing touch.

[WIW Video] How to Make a Shaker Card using Planner Stamps by Patricia

Hello everyone! In this week's Watch it Wednesday, our newest inspiration team member Patricia shares how to make a shaker card using planner stamps! Patricia's card was inspired by our May Challenge! wfc-201605-photo DesignTeamHeadshots_PATRICIAHello everyone, Patricia here! The colors, the flowers, the umbrellas, and the bright feeling from the photo inspiration, inspired me to made a shaker card using the planner stamps for the weather as the little shaker windows, welcoming the pretty Spring flowers after all of the cloudy and rainy days.  A great way to cheer someone up.  I used the soft blue and pretty aqua/green colors from the photo for my card base.  Then made the white base for the shakers smaller to leave a big border, similar to the feeling I get from the photo inspiration with lots of color and white to balance it.  And, of course, I had to include a little umbrella, all closed up and saying goodbye to the rain and hello to the flowers.  I colored the little fussy cut flowers from the Fay Stamp Set with Copics and Chameleon markers in colors from the photo inspiration.

And here's the finished card! WFC 5-9 Patricia Roebuck Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Shelly, Laura Jane along with our guest spot winner Amina are here to share their takes on this month's Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our challenge too! wfc-201604-photo Marcie Sharp Products: Magical Stamp Set Lacy Flowers Die Celebrate Word Die Lacy Flower Mats Die WFC 4-11 Marcie Sharp What Marcie Says: I used the colours in the inspiration picture and channelled all the springtime vibes I could to create a pretty floral focal piece for my card. The Lacy Flower Mats Die and Lacy Flowers Die made this SO easy to do. Repeatedly stamping the thin lines from the Magical set and adding few ink splatters in a tone on tone look make a plain yellow card base a little more interesting. Finally, a bold pink sentiment draws your eye right where it needs to go and sequins give it a bit of bling. :) Daria Grushina Products: Leafy Stamp Set WFC 4-11 Daria Grushina What Daria Says: I was inspired by the gorgeous bouquet from the inspiration photo and decided to make my own... Unfortunately I do not have any umbrella die (that would look cool too)... So I just took a piece of craft cardstock to make the packaging and then colored and fussy cut lots and lots of flowers from Leafy Stamp set... Using coordinating dies would be so much faster... but they are still on my shopping list (wink) Shona Chambers Products: Awesome Word Die Congrats Stamp Set Willy Stamp Set Welcome Spring Stamp Set WFC 4-11 Shona Chambers What Shona Says: Using the tulip image as the focal point, I stamped the images in black on the card front and coloured with pencils. The word die was die-cut 3x, glued together and adhered to the card along with the rest of the sentiment. Thank you for sharing such beautiful creations with us, Ladies! We're lucky to have you!

on December 20, 2015
Hello everyone! Our friend Melania is on the blog today!
Christmas Stocking Card 1
Today I have a card I made with Stocking Stamp SetStocking DieWilly Stamp Set and Faye Stamp Set.
I stamped and colored the cute monkeys using Copics.  I paper pieced the stockings with some patterned paper.
For the background, I blended some dye inks on the card base and then splashed some water with my brush. After that, I used a snow stencil with white pigment ink to make it more snowy.
The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Annette Allen

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.
WFC-11-9- Annette Allen

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.
