Hi everyone! I'm SO HAPPY to share with you today! I've been waiting and waiting to share these wonderful new stamps with you! Today I'm joining in on a giant blog hop to kick off the Waffle Flower Crafts new release for 2018! You are going to find so much fun and inspiration along the hop! Prizes too! And new stamps! What could be better than that? Nothing! Did you arrive from Nichol's awesome blog? To start at the beginning of the hop - CLICK HERE to go to the Waffle Flower Blog.
OH MY! So excited. Can you tell? I am literally the biggest fan girl of Waffle Flower. I love the artistry, the designs, the innovation, the packaging...and most of all the lovely people who run the company. I'm honored to be part of things today. I have THREE cards to share! Grab some coffee and sit along with me for a bit. LOTS of new stamps to show you! My three cards all feature adorable critters! That was my theme for the day!
My first card has the cutest monkeys and toucans from the Jungle Bday stamp set! EEP. I had lots of fun coloring this one! All the cards for today are A2 size. For the monkey card I used my favorite MFT Cloud Stencil to make some puffy clouds for the little monkeys to swing in! (All supplies linked at the bottom of my post). This card just totally makes me smile. I used the sentiment from another cute Easter set!
I used Copic Markers in bright colors to color in all the images. Once they were die cut and colored, I attached everything to the card using foam tape. I like to use a white gel pen to add small accents to some of the images.
The die cuts are perfection! First cut, easy cut, perfect the first time. That is really important to me. The quality of Waffle Flower stamps is so good!! I used a bit of green gingham to add a little pop of color around my monkey scene!
These little guys would make a really cute baby shower card too! The set includes an elephant and a sweet birthday cake. So much fun!
My second card has adorable mice! They are wishing you a happy celebration! I used two stamp sets for this one. One stamp set has the celebrate banner and balloon, and the other stamp set has the cute mice! I thought it would be cute to have the mice holding up the banner across the front of the card.
I colored everything with Copic Markers and added white gel pen to some of the accents. I used bright, primary and rainbow colors. So cheerful!
For the background, I used distress ink and a water brush...kept it kind of loose and free. Then I splattered blue ink and white ink to make it interesting! I added a few sequins and a twine bow when I finished off the card.
I do love a good rainbow....
And lastly, a happy hedgehog! I told you there were lots of critters today! The Autumn Time stamp set is gorgeous!!! Oh my. The stamp set doesn't have any sentiments, so I used the hugs and prayers sentiment from the Helen Dardik Enveloper Hugs stamp set. I thought it was perfect for a get well card or encouragement card. Again, I colored with my Copic markers in pretty warm shades...and created a little scene.
All of these images are so nice - and so easy to mix and match to make whatever you want. I used the matching dies to cut out everything.
That's all for me today! Again, I'm so happy to be able to share my love of Waffle Flower today, and share their beautiful new release! If you're new to my blog today because of the hop - welcome! I hope to see you again. Best wishes for a wonderful day everyone!
