Waffle Flower July Release + a Giveaway!!

I don't know about you, but I could certainly use some cheer this summer! So I am so happy to report that Waffle Flower’s Christmas in July Release is available today! 

**Please note: Waffle Flower didn’t anticipate the popularity of this release and more stamps will be restocked around July 9th and dies around July 21st.

Let's dive right into this awesome release! I started with the adorable Happy Gnomes and thought a rainbow of gnomes on a slim line card would be a fun and unique holiday card! Sometimes I really like using non-traditional color combos for my Christmas cards.
Next, I stamped and Copic colored all the little images from the FaLaLa Combo. I had to use all three stamp groupings because they were all so cute. I tucked my mice groupings behind a piece of Waffle Flower Half Half Dots patterned paper that I cut with the Nesting Hexagons Die. The Christmas tree is from an older stamp set, Deck the Halls.
I had a ton of fun coloring the Holly Bird Combo and decorating the cute bird's hat. I die cut the bird and then die cut 3 sizes of hexagons from some color cardstock to create this layered look.
Of course I had to turn the Be a Reindeer die into Rudolph by foiling his nose! I created some foil star accents too by die cutting Therm O Web's Double Sided Foam Adhesive with Waffle Flower's Nesting Star Die and foiling with gold Transfer Sheets.
Next, I created this shimmery card using the Poinsettia Combo. I stamped and no line colored the poinsettias and then re-stamped and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I placed them on a gold glitter cardstock die cut with the Nesting Hexagon Die.
And lastly, I created this simple peace card by stamping and silver heat embossing the background with several small images. I die cut the background with the Blanket Layer Die and then I layered the die cut Peace Word Die several times to create tons of dimension.
This month I filmed a video featuring these cards and 5 ways to make your holiday cards extra special. You can check it out here:


I have a couple of other non-holiday cards that were created with the Classic Sentiments Combo:
