Winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the posts on this blog hop and will be announced on the Waffle Flower blog on 6/10/2019.


Ok, let me show you what I made with the new release! First up, I created this card using the Iris You Stamp Set.
I did some very light ink blending on the background and then Copic colored the flowers.
For this one, I colored the flowers the same way but I created a darker ink blended background with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink and then spritzed some water on it.
The frame is from the Waffle Flower Picture Frames Dies.
Next up, I created this card with the Konnichiwa stamp set. I cut pieces of cardstock at an angle and then used all the characters and most of the scene building items too.
This color combo is a favorite of mine.
I also created this little card with the same set. I die cut a circle out of red cardstock and popped it up on white paper to mimic the Japanese flag.
I love that the sentiments in Konnichiwa are in English and Japanese.
Next up is P-ARR-TY Time. I love the cute mice dressed as pirates and all the little accessories you can have them holding.

I used the Wave Texture Die to create that stitched looking background.
I also have this little number made with Plant Kindness. I had so much fun coloring the little cup of plants.
I covered the water with Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make it look shiny.
For the Vine Frame Die, I turned it into faux chalkboard art by adding colored pencil elements over dark grey cardstock.
I used Polychromos Pencils for this technique.
Last, but not least is the Coffee Cup die and Stamp set. I went a little crazy making several coffee cups to share all the different stamp options.
On a couple of cups, I created a cup holder using Kraft cardstock and a paper crimper!
So that's it! I know I went a little overboard this month! So leave me a comment below. You can tell me your favorite set this month, or your favorite card I made. Don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs by 6/8 for a chance to win one of three $25 gift cards! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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!

Here is the whole hop from start to finish!
