Waffle Flower Crafts – Inspiration Photo

Hello everyone!! I’m here with our new Waffle Flower Crafts Photo Inspiration Challenge!!!

This is my eleventh and final challenge for 2015 with Waffle Flower Crafts! Time really went by so fast, 6 months really went by in a blink of my eyes.

I had a really great time on this team.  The ladies that I worked with are all amazing and talented designers.  Thank you Nina and Tessa for the opportunity to be apart of this amazing company Inspiration Photo Team.

This weeks photo really stumped me.  I was lost up until the day my photo was due.  I think the colors confused me.

Take a look:

Waffle Flower PhotoYou know that I’m a shaker card lover so I decided that I would chose one color from this photo and create a very cute and simple shaker card for the last time for this challenge.

Take a look at my photo:

Waffle Flower Crafts – Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone!! I’m here with our new Waffle Flower Crafts Photo Inspiration Challenge!!!

This is our tenth challenge for 2015 and this happens to be my favorite photo to date.

Take a look:

Waffle Flower Craft

Look at how vibrant those colors are!

Take a look at my photo:

Hello (WFC)Oh man, I couldn’t help myself with this card.  I love those ombre colors in the photo above that I had to recreate the same look with one of the colors.

Here’s how I created this card:

1. My card base is cut to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50).

2. I cut the card panel to 2.25 x 5.50

3. I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean to create my ombre look.  I started with the full strength of the ink to the paper.  Then I tapped off on the side before added the color to the paper.  Then I lightly add color to the bottom of the paper.

4. I place my panel into my Misti and stamped a flower from Waffle Flower Crafts Flower Circles Stamp Set with Versamark Ink.

5. I added Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

6. I used the same stamp set to stamp my sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

7. I pop my card panel up with fun foam and I added Pretty Pink Posh Winter Snow Mix sequin randomly.

Super cool!!  I love how this card turned out.

So what do you think? Please let me know.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

I’m also linking this card up to Virginia’s View Challenge #15.

Waffle Flower Craft – Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here with our new Waffle Flower Crafts Photo Inspiration Challenge!!!

This weeks photo is so lovely!

This photo inspired me to create a shaker card!

Take a look:

With Love (WFC)

I told you I love the new release dies and stamps!! I couldn’t help myself in using this die again.

I’m also obsessed with shaker cards now that I know how to make them with ease!!

Let’s look at how I created this card:

1. I die cut all of my frames using Waffle Flower Craft Doily Square Die.

With Love 1

2.  To start I added adhesive to the front panel base die cut layer. I’m doing this so that my frames will stay in place.

With Love 2

3. I added the second die cut base that will hold my actually frame in place.

With Love 3

4. I added my pink frame to the base.  I also added the Kraft inserts around the pink frame.  I added to much tape so I decided to add these pieces to over up the tape.

With Love 4

5.  Now its time to make the shaker part of my card!!  Yayy!  I love this part.

Ok, I took one of my memory keepers scrapbook sleeves and cut it in half.  I taped down my die with washi tape to keep it in place.

With Love 5

6. I meant to take a photo of my actually using the fuse but I forgot but you will see it below.

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to seal the edges.  Then I cut off the excess plastic. After tracing the edge of the die, your shaker pocket looks like this. Can you see what I did wrong here?  Yes, I sealed the entire thing before adding my sequin, LOL!  Ok, easy fix.  I just use my Kraft knife to open up a small portion.

I told you I love making these.  I get so excited.

With Love 6

7. After filling the pocket with Lucy Adams Phosphorescence Sequin, I used the fuse tool to seal the shaker pocket up. I just laid the die back on the pocket lining it up with the previous fuse.

With Love 7

8. Here is what the pocket looks like when its sealed and ready to add to your card.

What I notice what this pocket fit but it was to big.  I used the bigger die and didn’t need to.  I need to use the smaller die from that set.  So I started over.

With Love 8

9.  Ok, this die is much better.  The actually frame where the shaker will show is this size so there was no need for the bigger one.

So, I did the same thing I did above.

With Love 9

10. See here you can see me using the fuse to seal the sides of my shaker pocket.

With Love 10

11. Here you can see that I added the sequin and trimmed the edges down.  I’m sealing the opening so that my sequin doesn’t fall out.

With Love 11

12. Here is my finished pocket!  I left some of the edge so that I can adhere it to my card base.

With Love 12

13. I add tape to my card panel. So that my shaker pocket will stay in place.

With Love 13

14. I adhered the shaker pocket so that the fused line doesn’t show through the window of the card.

With Love 14

15. I added foam tape to the card panel that it will stick to the card base with some room for my sequin to shake.

With Love 15

16. I added the front panel to my card base. So how easy that was.  Super fun to create.

With Love 16

17.  To finish the card off, I die cut 4 Waffle Flower Craft With Love Word Die out of Simon Says Stamp Lemon Chiffon Yellow Cardstock.

With Love 17

18. I adhered them with Tombow Multipurpose Glue and adhered it to the front of my card.

That’s my card for this challenge.  I challenge you to make a shaker card. It’s super fun and pretty.

Do you see how I used the colors to create my card.  I love this color scheme.

So what do you think? Please let me know.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Take a look:

Photo Inspiration May 11

Perfect colors for a Mother’s Day brunch!  Wait, for all of you who are mothers and mothers-to-be, Happy Mother’s Day!!  Its a day late, but better late then never!!

For this challenge, I decided to use the colors instead of the picture for inspiration.

Take a look at my card:

Congrats

I’m playing with a couple of new dies from the last release.  Did I tell you I love all of the stamps and dies that were released.  All of them are totally amazing.  If you haven’t seen them, you must head on over to Waffle Flower Craft Store and check them out.

I decide to go with an all black background so that those pretty colors can shine through.

I inked my cardstock with Distress Ink Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade then cut it with Waffle Flower Craft Doily Circle Die.

I adhered the die cut off to the side of the card front with adhesive and cut off the excess.

Then I used the Congrats Die Cut and cut it 4 times to have a stacked sentiment.

Super easy!  The doily is so pretty once its cut out.  Its a must have.

So what do you think?  Please let me know.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

I’m linking my card up to Virginia’s View Challenge.

Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration

These colors remind me of spring!!  Which I hope gets here soon.  I have to admit, this photo really gave me a run for my money.  I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do.

It took me two weeks and some new stamps to figure out what I want to do.

Take a look at my card:

Smile It Looks Good On You (WFC)

I decided to go with the mirror in the photo! So that is what I created, a mirror with no glass!

Here is how I created my card:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Mint cardstock to 5 x 10 scored at 5.

2. I die cut Waffle Flower Crafts Doily Square die out of Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold cardstock.

3. I placed my cardstock on my new Misti so that I could place my stamps inside my frame for perfect placement.

4.I used Waffle Flower Crafts Planted Stamp Set to stamp my potted flower with Waffle Flower Crafts Spring Blend Inks.

5.I used Waffle Flower Crafts Doily Circle Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment and hearts with the same Spring Blend Ink.

7. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the hearts and smile.

Such pretty subtle colors!  I knew the Waffle Flower Flower Circles Die Set would look amazing in these colors.

To create this card:

It was simple.  I started with a card base cut to an A2 size card.

I used Simon Says Stamps Cotton Candy cardstock and Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather pattern paper to cut out my Flower Circle Die.

I adhered the flower on the card, then stamped my sentiment from the Holiday Labels- Give Thanks Set in the center of my flower using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I adhered some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and Simon Says Stamps Gold Sequin to the front of my card.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Hola

The colors for this challenge are amazing.  They remind me of spring.  So I decided to create a spring card.  I can’t wait for the snow to disappear.

To create this card:

I started with a textured creamy caramel cardstock, (sorry I can’t remember the name), cut to an A2 size card.

I stamped stem, flower and leaves from Waffle Flower Rock My World Stamp Set,  with Versamark; add white embossing powder and heat set the images.

I used my Stampin’ Up! Mellon Mambo and Bermuda Bay Blendabilities and a YG13 Copic marker to color my flowers. Practicing my color skills for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge.

I stamped “Hello ” from Waffle Flower Rock My World Stamp set and “Hola” from Waffle Flower DT Mix Stamp Set.

I added Stampin Up! rhinestones the center of each flower.

Done!!  So what do you think?  Please let me know.  Now its your turn!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
