Waffle Flower Crafts Challenge – Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Waffle Flower Crafts Photo Inspiration Challenge!  This is our third challenge and its totally amazing.

February 23 challengeCheck out those colors!!  I had to really search my stash for those colors.  I think I hit the nail on the head, LOL.

Take a look at my card:

Live Laugh Love

I decided to use a new stamp set, Waffle Flower Crafts Rock My World and I didn’t want to plan what I wanted to create.  I was flying by the seat of my pants and I love how this card turned out.

I decided to create a mask using Waffle Flower Flower Circle Die and used it to covered my card front.

I blended Distress Ink Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean to create the flower pattern.  I wanted my colors in the same place as the picture.

I used Hero Arts Neon Yellow Ink and a pencil eraser to add that neon color to my flower.

I also use Hero Arts Tide Pool Ink Dauber to create the last color on my flower.

I added Hero Arts Gems to the card front to jazz it up some.

I rounded the corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper and then I was done.  Yayy!!  Nice and easy card to create.

I love how this card turned out and I didn’t have a plan!!  Sometimes going with you gut, things turn out great!

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

I’m also entering my card in the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge: You Blend. This is the first time I’m playing with them. It seems like fun.

Waffle Flower Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Waffle Flower Crafts New Photo Challenge!!  The colors for this challenge are so pretty.  I was in awe when I say the colors.  They are so deep and very rich!

Photo challenge

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to create using these colors.  It had to be meaningful because the colors called for it.  So I decided that I wanted to use the new DT Mix Stamp Set.

The sentiment ” You Will Forever Be My Always”, has a deep sentimental meaning in the corners of my heart.  I have a small story for you, you might need a tissue. So get ready.

A couple of years ago before my daughter was born, her father and I use to listen to the radio in the car all the time.  There was one song that use to come on all the time.  It was a country song by a women I didn’t recognized.

At first we didn’t realize that song played each and every time we were in the car together.  One evening he picked me up from work and the song was on and I asked him if he knew what the name of the song was or who sang the song.  We loved the song but didn’t know the name of it.  So right there and then, I called that radio station to find out who sang the song and the name.

The DJ said it was Forever And For Always by Shania Twain.  He asked me if I wanted to hear it and I said yes, and dedicated it to Ray!  That song became our song.  He always said we will be together “forever and for always”,  because “we just fit”.

December 25, 2005 we found out that we were going to have a baby, on December 28, 2005 he died from cardiovascular disease.  He never did get chance to see our daughter who is going to 9 this year, but he did keep his promise.  He is with me through her “Forever and for Always”!

So I made my card in memory of him!

Take a look:

You Will Forever Be My Always1

Thanks Tessa for creating that sentiment just for me!  I love how this card turn out. Its a CAS card with a lot of sophistication.

I learned this Border Gap Die-Cutting and Masking technique from the Online Card Class Clean and Simple 4.

This card was easy to create.

Just use a border die and cut my front panel into three pieces.

Then I used masking tape to cover up the different “waves” so that ink doesn’t transfer onto them while I’m blending.

Once the blending is done, I stamped my sentiment at the top and added some gold sequin to highlight the sentiment.

I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card front.

Once you know what to do, its a breeze to recreate this card again.

So what do you thing of my card?  Now you know a little bit more about me. So what do you thing?

I’m going to live you with the video of the song so you can listen the words of the song.

Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Waffle Flower’s 2nd Photo Inspiration Challenge!!

What did you thing of the first challenge?  Those colors were a challenge but not to challenging to some of you!  I love seeing all of the entries.

Are you ready to see our new challenge?  Yayyy, here you go:

Photo Inspiration January 26

Here is my take on this challenge:

Perfect Bloom

Sooo, what do you think?  I totally love this new Planted Stamp Set and the Perfect Word Die from Waffle Flower.

If you know the stamp set, that third potted plant was created using the plant from the first stamp!  Ingenious, is what I say, LOL!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an A2 (4.25 x 5.50) size card.

2. I stamped the first and second potted plant using Memento Tuxedo Black ink because I wanted to color the images using my Copic markers.

3. I used my Copic markers to color in each plant and pot.  I used the same colors in the photo.

4. For the third potted plant, I stamped the empty post first.

5. Then I created a mask for that pot, so that I could stamp the plant inside.  Then I colored the image.

6. I die cut the word Perfect out of Simon Says Stamp School House Red cardstock 4 times..

7. I stacked them on top of each other so that the die could have some dimension. I adhered the die to the front of my card.

8. I stamped the word “Bloom ” underneath the die cut.

9. I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the card and that was it.

Super easy card to create. This card allowed me to practice my Copic coloring.

Come on and join us!! Now I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Waffle Flower Challenge – Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone!!  Happy New Year to all of you (just in case this is your first time visiting me).

I’m so excited today!!!  This is my first post as a Waffle Flower Crafts Design Team Member!!!

So I have to admit something to all of you.  I planned this post two weeks ago because for the new year I want my post to be scheduled and ready to go out. So I did everything I needed to do.  I hit schedule and I thought I was set.  Until I went back to preview it and I realized I couldn’t find it.  I started to panic.  I couldn’t find the post.  Something told me to have my brother check his email and there it was.  I thought I was going to cry.  I sent the post out, but it wasn’t in my feed.  That’s because I didn’t change the year from 2014 to 2015 so it was under my archive but everyone who gets emails from me received the post, even the Twitter world.

I was so scared that I messed things up. I pulled the post and changed the date and I deleted it from Twitter.  I emailed Tessa and she assured me that everything will be ok.  So those of you who get emails from this blog, received a sneak peak already.

So with that said:

I’m working really hard to make this year one of the best years ever.  Thanks for coming on this journey with me.

So without farther ado, lets get started.

Our first challenge for the year is Photo Inspiration Challenge.  Take a look at the colors below.

WF Challenge Jan 12Aren’t these colors pretty together.  It give off a very warm feeling.  It makes me want an cup of hot chocolate to drink while I create.

So now that you’ve had a chance to see the colors for yourself and how they look in a room, take a look at my card:

Hi, Thank you

What do you think?  I really love how my card turned out.  I have to admit,  I’ve never made a card using a photo for inspiration before.

I looked at this picture for a couple of days before I sat to create.  I thought long and hard about what I wanted to create.  Once I figured out what stamp set and die I wanted to use, I shopped my paper stash for the colors.

I was worried because I didn’t remember seeing all of these colors in my stash.  Once I found them, I knew I was ready to create.

So here is how I did it:

1. I created my A2 size (5.50 x 4.25) card base using Stampin’ Up! Rose Red cardstock.

2. I embossed the front of the card base using Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot embossing folder.

3. I cut a small piece of Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy and Dark Chocolate cardstock then embossed it with Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

4.  I attached the two pieces, one on top of the other, with tape.  Then I used Waffle Flower Crafts Flower Circles Die Set and cut a stitch circle out of the Stampin’ Up! Lost Lagoon cardstock.

5. I stamped the “thank you” sentiment from Waffle Flowers Crafts 100% Love Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Rose Red Ink.

6. I attached the stitched circle die cut to the stamped thank you sentiment piece.

7. I stamped the “hi” sentiment from Waffle Flower Craft 100% Love Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Lost Lagoon Ink.

8. I attached the hi sentiment to the front of the circle with foam adhesive.

9. I attached some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm sparkling clear sequin randomly on my card front.

Wala!!  My card is complete.  Easy as 1-2-3!

So what do you think?  Did I meet the photos expectations?  Let me know.  I would love to hear from you!!

I hope my card gives you some inspiration to participate in the Photo Challenge. It runs for two weeks, starting today, January 12th and ending January 25th.
