Waffle Flower April 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hi Everyone! It's Waffle Flower Release Day! This month is especially exciting because Waffle Flower is turning 5 years old! AND we have the brand new and highly anticipated Water Media Mat releasing this month too!  Since we have a lot going on we have a smaller than normal release. Here is my take on the Grateful Stamp Set
I had so much fun coloring these images with bright primary colors!
I also used the Bold Sentiments stamps and dies to create this card.
I love how the dies cut a fun shape around the sentiment!
 Since it is Waffle Flower's birthday, we have tons of birthday sets this month too! I especially love the We Herd stamp set!


I also love the Birthday themed Batter Stamp Set:
I used the Ticket Frames dies from the Back to Basics Bundle to create the shaker:
And nothing is cuter than a bunch of hamsters celebrating in Office Birthday. I used the Speech Bubbles die to create a speech bubble shaped card.
Last but not least, I created this simple card by layering the A2 basics dies in a bunch of different colors of cardstock. I love how many dies come in that set!

Phew! Thanks for making it through all those photos! Now for all the hop information!

Queen and Co New Dies and More!

Hey Everyone! Just popping in to share some new Queen and Co dies that make cardmaking a breeze! First up, there are the Stackable Sentiments. These days cut the thin script sentiment and a shadow so you can layer different mediums like cardstock and glitter foam. Oh and Queen and Co has some fantastic new colors of glitter foam too!
They also have Foundation Dies sets 1 and 2 which cut all basic shapes that cardmakers need!

My favorites are the diagonal stitched pieces that stretch across a 4.25x5.5" card perfectly!
There are new sub sentiment stamps too!
And it wouldn't be a Queen and Co release without flowers!
I had such a blast creating with all these new goodies! You can find links to all the new products down below and I promise to film some videos soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Waffle Flower March Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

It is the fifth of the month so you know what that means! Waffle Flower Crafts release day! I am so excited about this month's release! There are so many amazing stamps and dies. Of course you can grab the entire bundle and save some money!
Alright, let me show you what I've been working on! I made not now, but two cards with the Bouquet Builder 3 Stamp set. This set is illustrated by Karla Jodoin and I love how she includes lots of details in her floral illustrations so you know where to do the shading and blending.
 I wanted to see how different I could make the set look, by using a different color combination and placement of the bouquet. I could color this bouquet ALL.DAY.LONG.
Next up is the XOXO stamp set which is a layering stamp set. But there are only two layers so even I can figure it out lol!
I also used the Wave Texture die as the background on that one and included some hand stitching on some of the stitch lines.
Next up is Be Him. I did two cards for this set too! That little elephant melts my heart!
 For this one, I paired one Be Him character with the unicorn from Be Her. Of course they pair perfectly!
What a fun, busy month! Ok, on to the hop details!

Waffle Flower February 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!


It is my favorite time of the month--Waffle Flower release day! There are so many amazing products this month! From fantastic florals to cute critters, lovely sentiments and more!
Let me show you some of the cards I created using these new goodies! First up is the gorgeous Be You Tiful! I love how you can use the pieces to create a wreath or floral corners or individual embellishments.
Next up is the adorable Be Her. My daughter is a unicorn fanatic so of course I HAD to use the sweet unicorn face!
 The Be her animals are made to fit right inside the Be You Tiful wreath too!
I love when you can use stamp sets together!
Next up, I combined the Label Greetings set with the Diamond Texture die. In the first card above, I used the Diamond Texture Die and inked over it to get the stitch lines to pop. This time I used them as stitching guides and then popped up the script sentiment from Label Greetings on top!

And don't forget you can grab the whole bundle HERE and save some $$!

Waffle Flower January 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

It is the BEST day of the month! No, I am not talking about pay day! I'm talking about Waffle Flower release day! And Waffle Flower has some BIG NEWS for die cutting fans...

You read that right! ALL Waffle Flower dies (starting with this release) will now come de-tabbed and on a magnet storage sheet. No more wrestling with wire cutters! No more being stabbed by tiny little tabs that you couldn't cut close enough to the die. Please tell me that's not just me lol! These dies are amazing quality AND you don't have to cut them apart. AND the decrease in cost to make them is getting passed on to the consumer. Now that is a win-win!!
I am so super excited about this release and so happy to tell you that is available in the Waffle Flower shop RIGHT NOW!
As always, if you get the whole month's release as a bundle you save $$!
AND did you know that Waffle Flower has come out with Enamel Dots? Waffle Flower's Enamel Dots are customized for carmakers...there are tons of the little tiny dots! One of my favorites is the Clean and Clear with White and Clear Dots.
But, of course I also love the UP & Running set which features a rainbow of colors just like the rainbow of Waffle Flower ink colors! Plus, they are running a promotion right now where you can get a free pack of Up & Running Enamel dots with orders over $50! Yeah! FREE! (Limited 1 per customer; While supplies last; Valid through midnight 1/7/19.)

OK, time to share what I made this month! First up is the Magnolia Stamp Set and matching dies. I ADORE this set. I think I will be using it OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. I love coloring these flowers! I used Polychromos pencils here, but I'll definitely be trying watercolor and Copics soon!
Next up is Group Hug! It's hard to tell, but I covered the little glasses with Nuvo Crystal Glaze and in person it is adorable!
Then we have Favorite Valentine. Such a cute stamp set with lots of little accessories to color, die cut and create a sweet scene with!
There's also TWO panel dies this month! I love panel dies! I colored the background with Copics and then filled it in with Nuvo Crystal Glaze (a Jennifer McGuire technique!).
Here's the other Panel Die. This one is easy to do a simple die cut inlay technique!
And finally, here is Spice Pot, the cute 3x4 set this month! I colored this guy with Tombow markers.
Seriously could this release be any better! I love it all!
Ok, now for the details!
