Waffle Flower April 2024 Release – Full Bloom

Waffle Flower’s April Release has a beautiful variety of blooms! I just know you are going to love it!

The Painted Flowers Background Die and Stencil work together to make a beautiful card quickly! I used shades of pinks and yellows on the stencils along with some gold spatter. The sentiment is from the Print & Script Take Care Die. I used 3 layers on all of my dies to add dimension.

The Wild Flowers Stencil is such a well thought out stencil set! Not only does it give layers that create beautiful blooms, it also has etched color suggestions on the stencils for the flowers, taking the guesswork out for those days when you just don’t know what colors to choose. I topped it with the Oversized Bloom Print Die and an embossed sentiment from the Small Sentiments Bloom Stamp Set. I also added a few Clean and Clear Enamel Dots. This card feels so cheery and perfect for Spring!

The Postage Collage Dies just got a perfect addition for Spring–the Postage Collage Wild Flower Stencil. These stencils add beautiful flowers to each postage stamp. I topped it off with a sentiment from the Full Bloom Sentiments Stamp Set and some Clean and Clear Enamel Dots. Happy Spring!

The Pop-Up Tulips Panel Die and coordinating Lovely Tulips Stencil Duo are perfect for making beautiful Spring cards quickly. I used Concord & 9th Inks in the colors Watermelon, Marmalade (retired), Buttercup, Fig, and Parsley. I added gold glitter paper behind the tulip panel. I topped it with a vellum circle, gold thread, and the print version of the Print & Script Get Well Die Set. I think this card would cheer up anyone who is feeling under the weather!

I just love this release so much! It is full of beautiful blooms and wonderful sentiments. It’s such a cheery and lovely release! I hope you get to pick something up from this release.

Waffle Flower March 2024 Release – Berry Sweet

Waffle Flower has a fabulous new release! It’s perfect for strawberry lovers but also has some fabulous basics! (The links throughout my post are affiliate links and using them adds no cost to you, but gives me a small percentage to help support my crafty work. Thanks for considering using them!) You can view the whole release here.

My first card features the Strawberries Background Stencil. When I first saw this stencil, I knew I wanted to try a unique color combo. I googled “Strawberry Prints” and found several fun color combinations, including one similar to this.

I started with A2 panel of Concord & 9th Poppy Cardstock. I then used the first layer of the stencil with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink. For the second layer, I used Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink for the blueberries and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink. I let it dry for a while and the used the third layer of the stencil along Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink. I found a foam blending brush worked best. I also found a pressing motion worked better than a swirling motion, especially with the pigment ink.

For the sentiment, I used white embossing powder on a strip of dusty blue paper (cut at angle on one side) and heat embossed “You are the berry best” from the Sweet Plates Sentiments Stamp Set. (I love all the cute sentiments in this set!) Finally a cut a strip of pink gingham paper from the Berry Sweet Gingham Paper Pad and adhered it to the panel. I added the sentiment on top of that. I added it all to the top of an A2 card base.

I love how the oxide and pigment inks paired with colored paper give a unique look to the card and allow for endless color combinations. I’m excited to try it with dye inks on white paper to get a completely different look.

I love the Strawberries Die! For this card, I used classic red and green colors (Poppy and Evergreen cardstock from Concord & 9th) for the strawberries with a touch of gold for the seeds. For the white flowers, I added a little yellow inkblending (Buttercup from C9) to the middle before adding on the yellow centers. I added a heat embossed sentiment from the Sweet Plates Sentiments. I adhered them all onto a Nectar panel cut from the previously released Nesting Rounded Rectangle Dies. It all pops nicely on top of the white A2 card base.

If you want to mass produce strawberries, then them the Multiple Strawberries-Die-n-Stencil is for you! I used a blend of red and green inks for the strawberries and Gold Rush Lunar Paste for the seeds. (I still have another set of strawberries for another card!) Then, I diecut the Sweet Plaid Panel Die three times, stacked the layers and glued them for dimension. Next, I created a red ombré inkblend over a panel and then used the Sweet Plaid Texture Die on the panel. I topped it off with my strawberries and a sentiment from the Sweet Plates Sentiments. This card has tons of texture and dimension but came together so quickly!

My final card features this beautiful plaid patterned paper from the Berry Sweet Gingham Paper Pad. It coordinates perfectly with the Sweet Plaid Panel Die (which I again layered three times for dimension). The sentiment is from the Sweet Lattice Sentiments–another beautiful and versatile sentiment set from JJ Bolton! The matching dies make it easy to add the sentiments anywhere. I popped up some pink glittery flowers from the Strawberries Die to add some sparkle to the card.
