Waffle Flower April Release Blog Hop


Hi Friends!

I'm super excited to be joining the blog hop for the Waffle Flower April Release! Waffle Flower is releasing 6 brand new stamp sets and 6 new die sets! They also have a new option where you can purchase the stamp and die combo pack! Plus, they have some really neat and fun new packaging!



My first card uses the adorable new Therefore I Am stamp set and Coordinating dies. I stamped the images in waterproof black ink onto watercolor paper, and watercolored them with Distress inks. I cut the entire image out with the Lovely Layers largest scalloped die.



Therefore I Am Combo stamp and Die Set
Lovely Layers Dies 

***



For this card, I used the new Smiling Stamp set and Coordinating dies. I stamped the image and sentiment onto watercolor paper using waterproof black ink. I then colored it in with Peerless watercolors. I cut the whole panel out with the Nested Domes dies and added this to a top folded aqua card base. I added some Nuvo Crystal drops in gloss white to finish it up.



***


This card uses the beautiful new Bouquet Building stamp set and Coordinating dies. For my background, I blended some purple distress ink onto Bristol Board card stock, and then sprinkled it with water. The flower was colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating die, and mounted with foam tape. 




***


This fun card was created with the Rainbow Panel Die set and Rainbows sentiment set. For the background, I blended some distress ink and then sprinkled with water.  For the rainbow, I did the same with several colors of distress inks and then used those to cut the pieces out to insert back into the rainbow. I cut out some extra clouds and added those with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card stock and added with foam tape. 




***



This cute stamp set is called Picture Perfect, and it's free with orders placed  by 11:59pm ET on 4/9/18! For my card, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black in and colored with Comic makers. I masked the image and blended a bit of Distress ink around the edges.
