Merry and Bright Christmas Tag

Hello there!  Today Waffle Flower Crafts  is up on the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Hop at Tracey McNeely's blog.  What fun it has been to follow along with her hop- so many great companies have played along and all have offers of a chance to win goodies!  Pop over to Tracey's blog for more information and to check out the Waffle Flower giveaway.  The design team and challenge design team ladies have made some awesome tags!!  Here is mine:

I started with a sand colored tag.  I stamped the doily from the Doily Circle Stamp Set onto the background.  For this watercolored look, I colored over the stamp with two green and two red markers.  Then I spritzed it with water before stamping.  Isn't it pretty stamped like that?

The sentiment is from the Holiday Labels- Merry Stamp Set.  It was stamped with Versamark and then embossed with black powder so it really stands out.  I added a few sequins, some washi tape, cardstock, and a bit of twine and ribbon to finish it off.

Over the weekend, I made 30 tags for Christmas!  I am glad to have a pile of cute tags to add to our gifts and they were fun to create!  A bunch of my crafty friends were able to get together and make them- I think that is why they were so fun! :)  Friends always make crafty time better!

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Fall Hello Card for the Waffle Flower Challenge

I have an autumn hello card to share with you today featuring this month's Waffle Flower Challenge technique- masking.  I am usually too lazy to mask anything but when I do it, I always love how it turns out!  Here is my card:

I punched a circle out of some computer paper and used the paper as my mask to sponge color into a circle shape.  I used the same color ink to stamp the leaves from the Leafy Stamp Set in.  I also splattered it onto the background.  Once my main image was done, I added some embellishments and the sentiment from the Flower Circles Stamp Set which was stamped onto vellum cut out with the Holiday Label 1 Die.  I embossed it using Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  The colors were also inspired by the challenge!

There is still lots of time to play along with this month's challenge!  I hope you pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog to check out today's post and play along with the Waffle Flower Challenge!  Thanks so much for popping by here today!

Queen For A Day Card


It's Thursday!!  :)  I'm extra happy because this weekend is going to be a fun one!  My friend Cheryl and I host a scrapbook retreat and we are heading out tomorrow morning to set up!  I am so ready for a fun girls weekend!! 

One thing I am for sure packing is my fun goodies from the latest Waffle Flower release!  I am having a lot of fun creating with them:

This card features the Stay Focused Die, the Little Gifts Stamp Set, and the Recharge Stamp Set.  I added some bold black and white patterned paper to offset the bright aqua card base.  I also added a pop of yellow behind the diecut heart and a pop of glitter to make it all sparkle!

I am hoping to get some cute cards done this weekend!  We will see how it goes- I am sitting with a fun bunch of ladies who like to chat- and so do I!  lol!  Hopefully I will get something done! :)

Hope you have a great day!  Thanks for popping by!

Waffle Flower's October Challenge

Good morning!  We woke up to cold weather this morning- frost on the ground and everything!  I am not ready for winter...

Let's think fall instead! :)  Here is the card I made for Waffle Flower's October Challenge:

I loved the inspiration this month!  I embossed the stamped images from the Doily Square Stamp Set with gold embossing powder and cut around the outsides to make it stand out.  The sentiment and leaf is from the Holiday Labels- Give Thanks Stamp Set.  I added some embossing on the card base as well with a chevron embossing folder.

Pop over to the latest challenge post to see what this week's featured designers created!  The inspiration photos are on the blog as well!  I hope you'll play along with us!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
