Insta-Christmas Card

Hi!

I made a fun little Christmas card for this week's Watch It Wednesday for Waffle Flower Crafts:


I mixed the Stockings Stamp Set with the Willy & Friends Stamp Set for this one.  I also used the fun Insta-Love Die for the frames.  I added patterned paper to each one for a fun and festive look.

Pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog to check out the video!

Hope you are having a great day!

I created a fun Christmas card inspired by Taheerah herself :)  She has the cutest shoes I've ever seen and I'm sure she has a few pairs on her list for Santa this year!  

I stamped the cute shoes with the First Step Stamp Set and cut them out using the matching First Step Die.  I used Copic markers to color them in.  The sentiment was custom made by pairing the Stockings Stamp Set with the Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set.   The background piece was cut using one layer from the Pinking Layers Die.  I added a bit of patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs to finish off the look.

Mini Gift Bags

 I have a card to share inspired by the latest Waffle Flower Challenge today!  I used the cute new Little Gifts 3-D Die for this birthday card:


I cut out a bunch of the mini bags and toppers to begin with.  Some were cut from cardstock and others from patterned paper.  I added a couple of patterns and accessories from the Little Gifts Stamp Set.  The mini tag also comes from there!  Once they were all stamped, I placed them on top of a panel cut from the Lacy Layers 2 Die.  I added a sentiment from the Bowtiful Stamp Set as well.

I chose a fun, bright pink cardbase for this one.  I used the little swirl and dot stamps from the Peace on Earth Stamp Set to create a birthday-worthy background.  Stamping it with Versamark gave it a tone on tone look.

I hope you'll join us for our challenge this month!  The inspiration colors are so fun this time around!  Pop over to the challenge post on the Waffle Flower Blog for more information!

A Bright and Cheerful Christmas Card

Who's counting down the days until Christmas?  I have to admit- I am already excited about the holidays being here!  I was happy for back to school and Halloween stuff is out everywhere now!  Just a few more weeks and we will be seeing Christmas everywhere!

I love bright and cheerful Christmas cards!  For my Watch It Wednesday post on the Waffle Flower Crafts blog this week, I thought I would try to create a card using Christmas lights as my inspiration.  Here is how it turned out:


I used the Shower Stamp Set to create the polka-dotted background.  I stamped the bubbles in Waffle Flower's new dye ink pads in Chirp! Chirp!, My Pleasure, You Said What?, Happy Go Lucky, and New Fish in Pond.  Aren't they pretty?  I also stamped over them with white pigment ink.

The sentiment is from the new Peace on Earth Stamp Set.  I love the scripty font :)  Here, I heat embossed it using white powder.  I added that panel to a layer from the Pinking Layers Die and added it to my bright pink card base.  I added a bit of twine and some adorable jingle bells that I found in my stash.

If you'd like to see this all in action, I made a video!  It is up on the Waffle Flower blog today and also on their YouTube channel.  Pop over to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by today!  It's been awhile since I've blogged and I keep meaning to get back into it.  With school and everything, it's been a little harder than I thought to find time!  Hopefully I will be back soon with some cards I made for the Waffle Flower release :)

My Anchor Card

Hello!  The August challenge at Waffle Flower Crafts is just about to wrap up!  Pop over to the blog for details and to play along!  I loved the soft colors in this month's inspiration photo and went with some pretty grays and blues for this card:


I think the Life Anchor Stamp Set and Matching Die is such a great little set!  I love the sentiments and the fact that there is a tiny little face to make the anchor even cuter :)  I paired it with the border stamp from the Doily Circle Stamp Set- I think it makes perfect waves!  Here, I stamped them with new Waffle Flower Dye Inks in Peace of Mind, New Fish in Pond, and Like a Pro.

If you have time to play along, I hope you will!  Pop over to the Waffle Flower blog for more inspiration from the Challenge Design Team!

Hope you're having a great day!!

Mermaid Garden Card

Hello!  Hope your Wednesday is going well!  I am spending my day with my family at the beach.  That might have been what inspired today's card!  There is also a video of how to make it up on the Waffle Flower Crafts Blog and Youtube Channel for this week's Watch It Wednesday segment :)  I used the lovely Faye from the Little Mermaids Stamp Set to create this card:


I created a tone-on-toned stamped background using the Little Mermaids Stamp Set and pretty new Waffle Flower Inks in New Fish in Pond and Peace of Mind.   Faye is watercolored and diecut using the matching Little Mermaids Die.
