Waffle Flower December Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!!

It's release day! Yay! I seriously love every stamp and die in this release. And the love themes are some of my favorites ever! I love the cuteness of Valentine's products and I love how you can really use them year-round since it's always nice to tell someone you love them! So let's look at the bundles this month and some of my favorite products from each and how I used them.
My favorite bundle this month is the Creative Bundle:
And my favorite product from this bundle is the Mailbox Die.
I love interactive cards that are EASY to make and I love gift card holders and this die is both!
Instead of putting some of the envelopes inside the mailbox , it perfectly fits a gift card. I also love that you only have to cut the die ONCE and it all folds up to create this adorable mailbox!
Also in the Creative Bundle this month is the Outline Love Combo, which includes the Outline Love Stamp Set, Matching Die and Word Die. The Word Die and Matching Die are not meant to layer on top of each other, but I still love the way they look together!
Next up is the Floral Bundle. 
This month the Floral Bundle is a bundle of every Bouquet Builder set Waffle Flower has ever released, including the brand new Bouquet Builder 6 illustrated by Karla Jodoin.
Last, but not least is the adorable Whimsical Bundle.
This bundle has two cute mousey sets illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux (Secret Admirer and Sending Love).
I used the mouse from Sending Love on my Mailbox above! There's also an adorable Birthday set by Big Bear and Bird called Harpy Birthday.

Waffle Flower November 2019 Tools & Storage Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hey everyone! Can you believe I am back already?! With another Waffle Flower release and giveaway?! That's right! Waffle Flower has a special release this month....a Tools and Storage release! In this release you will find:



Disc-Bound Products:
There are exclusive binding discs in 6 coordinating colors for the 3 new disc binding dies. These new dies are perfect for swatches, color combos, and even mini albums.
    In this Tools & Storage Release, you will also find...

    Cloud Storage Magnetic Boards 
    Comes 5 in a pack, each measures 5-5/16”x7-1/8” and 1/8” thick. These sturdy yet flexible magnetic boards each comes in a clear bag. The glassy white front is great for writing down the die measurements or for showing off a coordinating stamp set.
    and...
    Premium Palette Paper

Premium white color; Compatible with our Water Media Mat; No beading nor buckling when use as a palette for water media; can be inked, folded and die cut for paper crafting and gift wrapping.



    I used the Disc Bound Bundle for my projects today.


    First up, I created this little cardstock swatch book.


    I used the A2 Disc Bound Die and the Cream Discs. I cut a piece of cardstock from each of my Gina K Designs colors and popped them on the discs. I used a white gel pen to write the names of the cardstocks on the back. I love how you can easily take them off and move them around to see how different colors look together.
    Next, I used the A7 Disc Bound Die to cut pieces of Strathmore Bristol White Cardstock. On One side I ink blended several of my Distress Oxide Inks.
    On the other side, I stamped the Color Combos for Inkpads and Combo Swatch Stamp Set to create the little information page.
    For my third project, I used the A7 Disc Bound Die which cuts the size 4x6.5. I cut serval pastel sheets of cardstock to that size and layered photos over them to create a flip book!
    There are so many uses for this new Disc Bound Bundle!

    Waffle Flower November 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

    Hey everyone! It's my favorite time of the month! Waffle Flower release day! There are so many fun stamps and dies this month and there is literally something for everyone! First up is the Floral Bundle.

    The Floral Bundle includes the Sunflower Love Stamp Set with Matching Die and is so much fun to color!

    The Simply Said Sentiments Stamp Set and Matching Die pairs perfectly with Sunflower Love, but would also work with lots of other stamp sets. The elegant labels and script font look stunning with flowers!
    I made another card with them. For this one I stampeded on yellow Cardstock, colored with Copics and then re-stamped and heat embossed with Gina K Designs Rose Gold embossing powder.
    I love how the embossing powder pairs with the metallic cardstock.
    Next up is the Whimsical Bundle!

    The first card I made with this bundle was this one made with Blessed Bear Stamp Set and Matching Die. I love the sweet bear and bird friends illustrated by Big Bear & Bird.

    I used the Forestscaoe Panel Die to create the trees in the background. Of course the night sky and grass were blended with Distress Oxide Inks.
    Another set from the Whimsical Nundle is the Winter Hamster Stamp Set with Matching Die.
    There are plenty of cute hamsters to choose from. I chose the sledding duo so I could place them in the Forestscape Panel Die.
    I also used the Winter Hamsters with the Cozy Cabin Die. 
    I loved hanging the candy canes from the tree and the stockings from the chimney.
    Last, but not least is the Creative Bundle.
    First up from the Creative Bundle is this card made with the Herringbone Panel Die.
    I turned mine into a shaker card and used the Merry and Bright sentiment from the Herringbone Panel Stamp Set.
    I also used the Herringbone Panel Die to create a background for my Merry Wreath Stamp Set scene.
    I love the white on white background for the sweet scene!
    And last but not least, I have a card with the Rainbow Thank You Die. There are so many possibilities with this die! 
    I chose to cut all the layers out of a rainbow of yardsticks and pop them up on black cardstock for a 80's neon look!
    Ok that's all my cards! Thanks for making it all the way through all those photos! Comment below and tell me your favorite or tell me which product you'd most like to work with form this release. By commenting, you have the chance to win one of three $25 gift cards to the Waffle Flower shop!
