Waffle Flower Crafts – Photo Inspiration Challenge

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

This is our seventh challenge for 2015. I can’t believe we are at the end of April already!!  It just started yesterday, LOL.  Seriously, where did the time go?  Spring is creep in slowly on the Northeast coast.  I can’t wait for it to get warmer.

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)

Once I received my new stamps and dies, I figured out what I wanted to do.

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.

6. I attached my frame with foam adhesive.

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

We are family!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Addicted To CAS Challenge.  The code word is: Family!!

ATCAS - code word familyWhen I saw this code word, I knew I had to use my new Create a Smile Monster Party stamp set.  Those monsters are so cute!  They make such a great family!!

Take a look:

Monster Family

Aren’t they cutest family!!  This reminds me of a family portraiture where everyone is doing there only thing.

I choose that sentiment from The Alley Way Stamps Rock Solid because its so fitting for me.  I have so many people in my life that treat me like family and I love that for that.  Its such a nice feeling.

So here is how I created this card:

1. I used Simon Says Stamp School House Red cardstock for my card base.

2. Then I used Stampin’ Up! Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to create this funny dots on the front to my card base.  I though these dots were so fitting for my Monster Family!

3. I used Stampin’ Up! Deco Labels Framelit Die and cut out the largest frame on the front of my card base.

4. I stamped my Monster Family on Neenah Solar White cardstock and then colored them using my Copic markers.  I’m not perfect but I getting better with them, LOL!!

In order from left to right:

small monster: Go2, G04

big monster: B00, B02, B04, R29

small monster: R24, R27

big monster: Y13, Y15, Y19

flowers: G04

5. I stamped the small star-like stamp and the sentiment stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

6. I used foam adhesive to my color panel and attached it to the red card base.

7. I added glossy accents to the blue monster’s eye and Clear Wink of Stella to all of my monsters.
