Waffle Flower May 2024 Release – Beach Birthday

Summer is just around the corner and this new release from Waffle Flower is full of fabulous products to celebrate summer and all those summer birthdays!

The Inquisitive Seagulls Die makes the cutest seagulls–perfect for a fun summer card. The background features the Wave Texture Die and ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in various shades of blue. I also splattered it with water to add to an ocean feel. I used my MISTI to curve a sentiment from the Inquisitive Seagull Stamp Set. These products are so fun and a great way to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

The Postage Collage Die found its perfect summer companion: the Postage Collage Beach Days Stencil. I love the etched layers on the stencils that let you know where to blend for sand, water, and sky. You can cut the stamps apart and create your own layout, but I chose to keep them together for a quick and fun card. I topped it off with some stamps from the coodinating Postage Collage Beach Days Stamp Set and a sentiment from the Subsentiments Shore Diecut. These products make me excited for warmer days ahead!

The Beach Tote Die is so fun and fabulous for a summer card! I used the previously released Tiny Dot Stencil to add a rainbow of dots to my beach bag. The Beach Tote also has an optional pocket die, which
I’ve used to look like a magazine popping out of the beach bag. I used the coordinating Beach Tote Sentiments Stamp Set to add yellow stripes to the towel and a fun sentiment to the bag. The background is the new Happy Waves Panel Die. This card makes me feel ready for a day at the beach!

The Beach Umbrella Die-n-stencil makes creating multiple umbrellas a breeze! I chose to make six of the smallest size umbrella in a rainbow of colors. I inkblended the left side of the card with blue distress oxides. On the right side, I used a thin piece of cork “paper” for the look of sand. I topped it off with a sentiment from the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set. (I love that there is a coodinating die.) I think we all deserve a fun-filled day at the beach!

There is an extra suprise when you open up this card. Inside, I used a panel a bit smaller than my A2 card. Before adhering it to the panel, I used the Pocket Slots Die to add a pocket inside to hold a gift card
and added another sentiment from the Birthday Wishes Stamp Set on top of the pocket. I love that the slot keeps the gift card from sliding around or falling out!
