Rock Love Layout for Waffle Flower Crafts

I'm sharing a layout today over on the Waffle Flower Crafts Blog :)  I'm also sharing a video about how I made these fun rocks with the Rock My World Stamp Set- it's a fun technique!  Here's a peek:

Along with awesome stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts, I used papers and embellishments from Bella Blvd.  The layout was inspired by this sketch from Scrapbook Challenges :)

You're Perfect Card

Good morning!  Hope your week is going well- we have had a few late starts because of the weather but other than that, it has been pretty good!  :)  I'm popping on today to share a card inspired by the current Waffle Flower Challenge:

I've used the new In Every Way Stamp Set by Waffle Flower Crafts for this one.  I pulled the colors from the inspiration photo and stamped the flowers onto watercolor paper.  I was going to watercolor over them (hence the watercolor paper lol) but I decided against it in the end.  I splattered a little of the marsala colored ink instead.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then sewed around the edges with my sewing machine.

Have you checked out the Waffle Flower Challenge yet?  The current challenge runs through January 25:

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Valentine's Day Doily Banner

Hi!  It's my day to share on the SRM Blog- I created a fun and festive Valentine's Day banner:

Soon after I took down my Christmas decorations I made this!  My mantel looked so naked without anything festive on it :)  I used some of my favorite SRM products- doilies!  For more photos and information about how I made it, pop over to the SRM Blog!

Hope you have a great day!

Knit Happens Card

I made this card awhile ago but forgot to share!  The set is by Some Odd Girl- my first of one of the girls!  I loved her patterned sweater and boots :)  The sentiments were what sent me over the edge hee hee!  Here is my card:

The girl was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended a bit with Gamsol.  I stamped the pattern at the bottom with the border stamp, pulling colors I used from above.  I used the thick cardstock from Avery Elle for my card base.  It's my favorite to use with my colored pencils!

Keeping it short today!  Have a great one!

Waffle Flower DT Mix Blog Hop

Hi!  I am so excited about today's post!  There is a special stamp set in the latest Waffle Flower Crafts release that each DT member was invited to contribute to.  The DT Mix Stamp Set went on sale today!!

Isn't that fun!!  I love how different each image is but at the same time, they work so well together!  I chose "you will forever be my always" as my contribution.  I love that saying- it truly makes my heart smile! :)  Here is what I made with it:

I wanted to create a semi watercolored look with the heart.  I chose a few shades of soft pink from my Stampin' Up! markers and colored over the solid image in a messy sort of way.  I huffed on it and stamped it onto a panel of white card stock.  I took the same colored ink and splattered it around the heart as well and let it dry.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with my Versafine black ink- it is so crisp and stamps the best out of all my black inks!  I added just a few sequins around the sentiment for embellishment.

I created a cardbase out of white cardstock and added the strip of patterned paper by Pink Paislee to the left side.  I added the panel over the top using foam adhesive dots for dimension.  It's a simple look but really lets those pretty stamps shine!

Rain or Shine Card for Waffle Flowe Crafts

Hi!  I have another fun card to share today featuring the new Rain Check Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Crafts!  This one is all about the weather- so fun!  Be sure to stop by the Waffle Flower Crafts Blog to see what else is new.  Here is my card:

I love the bold images in the Rain Check Stamp Set.  I stamped the clouds with rain onto a diecut journaling card to start off with.  I diecut the sun from the Partly Cloudy Die Set in orange and yellow cardstock next and adhered them to the journaling card.  I stamped the 'or' between the images so it read rain or shine in pictures :)  I also stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the card.

I wanted to keep my card pretty simple so that the bold images would really stand out.  I made a card base of aqua cardstock and cut strips of paper in the same colors I used in the images.  I sewed along each strip  and added them to the bottom of the card front.  I adhered the journaling card to the front using foam adhesive dots for dimension.

The Rain Check Stamp Set has so many possibilities!  There are some fun combinations of sentiments and images- really cute!  Pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog to see what everyone else created along with all the other new goodies!  Such fun ideas!!

Bloom Where You Are Planted Card for Waffle Flower Crafts

Hi!  I'm popping in today with another card for the current Waffle Flower Crafts release!  Today we are featuring some beautiful new stamp and die sets inspired by succulents- so pretty!  To see the full release, pop over to the Waffle Flower Crafts Blog.  Here is my card:

I started this one with the beautiful big succulent image from the Potted Stamp Set.  I stamped it onto a diecut oval with Delacata gold ink.   I stamped the sentiment next, using a dark terra cotta shade of ink.  I pulled out some cantaloupe colored cardstock and created a card base out of it.  I splattered some peachy mist over it and let it dry.  I adhered the oval into place and then sewed along the bottom of the oval, leaving my thread ends long.

I stamped some pots from the Planted Stamp Set and diecut them using the Pots Die Set.  I added them to my card front using foam adhesive for dimension.  I tucked a bit of thread behind the pots and embellished with a few sequins.

I really love how this one turned out and I can't wait to use these sets again!  I was so inspired by what the rest of the DT members did with it- be sure to pop over to today's post on the Waffle Flower Blog to check out the full release!

Monochrome Sheep for Waffle Flower Crafts


Happy New Year!!  2015 is here and off to a great start!  I'm celebrating with my first release for Waffle Flower Crafts!  Pop over to the Waffle Flower Blog to see today's featured sets.  I'm using a fun one- the new Monochrome Stamp Set:

The Monochrome Stamp Set is full of all things black and white!  It's just quirky and fun!  I love it!  I started with a gray card base and stamped a pattern on the bottom with matching gray ink.  Next, I splattered the card front with a darker gray mist and let it dry.   I stamped the sheep on to white cardstock and colored the white one with aqua Copics.  I fussy cut around them both.  I diecut a piece of vellum with the large tag from the Surface- Tag Die- Starter Kit Set and stamped the sentiment onto it with Staz On ink.  I figured out where I was going to place it and stamped the word bubble in gray ink onto the card front.  I adhered the vellum tag over the top.  I added the sheep, using foam adhesive dots to stick them down.  I stamped the heart between them to finish if all off.

Aren't these guys fun!  You should see the rest of the Monochrome Stamp Set!  It's just as cute! :)  Pop over to today's post on the Waffle Flower Blog to see what else is new!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
