Waffle Flower July 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Today is the big day! Waffle Flower's July release is now available and it is a BIG release. There are two bundles this month, a regular bundle and a Back to Basics Bundle. Here is everything in the regular bundle:
And here is everything in the Back to Basics Bundle:
There are so many fun stamps and dies in this release and I made a ton of samples, so let's get started. This one was made with the Horizontal Stripes Die. 

I cut the stripes out of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blended over them with Distress Oxide Inks and then put the stripes back together on an A2 card base.
For this card, I used the Bouquet Builder 4 Stamps and Dies. I colored them with Comic markers.
I used the new Circle Texture Die to die cut the background and ink blended over that.
I used the cute Bonjour Combo for this one. I lived in Paris for a semester during college so I love this stamp set.
But the little cafe scenes could be used without the Eiffel Tower for a versatile look.
I used the Fun in the Sun Stamps and Dies for the next couple of cards.
I also used the Cloudscape Panel Die to create the background. I added a touch of Distress Oxide ink to the edges of the cloud pieces to make them look like big, puffy, white clouds in a blue sky.
I inked over the whole bottom piece of the die cut to mimic water.
I adore the little mice in bathing suits and drinking Pina coladas!
Next up is the Zinnia Stamps and Dies. I love these flowers because all the stamp details make them really easy to color in and figure out where to blend darker colors.
I again used the Circle Texture Die to create the background.
July is the month that lots of cardmakers start their Christmas and holiday cards. So Waffle Flower came out with the Oversized Merry Stamps and Dies. The word die is awesome and pretty much fills an A2 card.
 I love the snowflakes stamped and heat embossed in white on Kraft cardstock.
 They look great on red cardstock too! Here I used the Micro Grid background to show bits of the white cardstock underneath.
 Gold foil cardstock is another great choice for the merry die. I like stacking a couple of die cuts to get dimension.
Lastly, I have a couple of cards made with the Sisterhood Combo. This Combo comes with the Sisterhood Sentiment Stamp Set and the new Go Girl Summer Dies, which feature new hairstyles and outfits.
I love these new dies! Not in either bundle, but also being released this month are the Micro Grid Backgrounds. I love these for an easy, modern background. 
I also used the Nested Hearts Dies to create some hearts for the sentiments.
Phew! That's all my samples this month! Don't forget to leave comments along the hop because Waffle Flower is giving away $25 gift certificates to THREE lucky winners.
