WAFFLE FLOWER January 2021 RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY!

Hello everyone! It's my favorite time of the year! Why? Because January represents a fresh start. And because this is when everyone starts releasing Valentine's and spring time products and I love both! I am so excited to be a part of this month's Waffle Flower January 2021 Release Blog Hop to showcase their Hearts and Roses release! Let's dive right into the cards and then I'll share the giveaway and hop info at the end!

First up, Waffle Flower is releasing layered stencils this month that make it so easy to create multi color flower and heart backgrounds. The Hearts Blooms Stencil made it so easy to create this pretty background! I will be making tons more in different color combos for sure!  Plus the Oversized Heart Combo makes it easy to create sweet die cut and stamped sentiments.

Please note:
The delicate shapes in stencil #4 that was featured in this sample cannot be produced in a consistent manner and is not in the final product of Heart Blooms Stencil Trio.
I loved the Oversized Heart Combo so much that I also included it on this sweet simple card along with the Scalloped Circles Die. Nothing is prettier than a scalloped edge with a pointelle effect!
If you've been around these parts for a while, you know I love panel dies. This Heart Frame Die comes with an A2 sized die. It cuts the rectangle and the tiny heart border and embosses the stitched lines. Then there is a hugs die included and an embossed heart. I chose to add the Scalloped Hearts Dies instead. By the way, this color combo of light blue, red and white is another reason why I love Valentine's Day releases!
Just because Valentine's Day is around the corner doesn't mean we can forget about those early month birthdays though! I combined the Happy Birthday Combo (love that it has matching dies that cut out the large fonts) and the Heart Balloons Stencil for this one. I ink blended the first stencil and then used Glitter Glitz Gel on the second.
This month Waffle Flower is releasing some amazing Stamp N Stencil Combos including this Rose Bouquet one! Combining stamps, stencils and dies is an easy way to create intricately colored image without the work of using markers.

The Love Letter Combo combines three stencils, a stamp set, a matching die and you can also get an outline die to create a pretty lacy layer on top of your stenciled image.

To see how to work with the stencils, stamps and dies from the Love Letter Combo, check out my video here:

  34. Love the birthday card with the blues/greens and the metallics! It's got a really positive energy to it. I also really like the double rose bouquet card! I wasn't really sure about the Sending Love stamp when I first looked at it, but you and a few others have done such a stellar job of showing it used in cards that I am now reconsidering! Thanks for the video! Happy New Year!!
