Year 1 Blog Hop with Waffle Flower Crafts

Hi!  I'm excited to be hopping along with Waffle Flower Crafts today for their Year 1 Blog Hop!


I'm so happy to be celebrating Nina and her awesome company- they have grown so much this year!  If you are following along with the hop, I bet you came from Sabrina Alery's blog.  If not, pop over to check it out!  Her projects are amazing!

Nina had us all pick our favorite Waffle Flower Crafts product from the last year.  Oh how hard it was to just pick one!!  I love so many stamp sets and literally have a new favorite with every release!  One item that I constantly pull out to use over and over again is the Flower Circles Die Set:


It is a great basic die set with pretty stitching along the edges.  I love the mix of circles and flowers.  It is so versatile and can be used in so many ways!  I used it to make my card today:


I started with a white card base and splattered it with dark gray mist.  I added some black and white washi tapes next and then a panel of black and white patterned paper.  I wanted to create a bright pop with the largest scallop so I watercolored a panel of watercolor paper with pink and coral.  Once it was dry, I diecut it with the scallop and smallest flower.  
I diecut the largest circle out of white for my center.  I pulled out the new Doily Circle Stamp Set for the sentiment.  I stamped the Smile with a bright pink ink and the rest of the sentiment with black ink.  I layered the flower elements over the black and white patterns and popped up the layers as I went.  I added a matte black sequin to the center of the small flower and embellished it with the Tiny Twine Bow Die.  It was the perfect last detail:
