All About Father

Its time for another card shares for Waffle Flower.
Father Day's card is almost around the corner and Waffle Flower have this great Hey Mr. stamp set

On my first card, I first created my card panel same size as the A2 card.  To create my paint streaks is to cover my panel with post-it and color it every 1 inch or so, once the color is achieve then I stamped the paint brush image from the set. I then added the largest sentiment and added the stars that are part of the set. Next I added the bucket of paint at the bottom then color the bottom of the bucket of paint with copics to ground my image.

On my next card. I first created my panel a little bit smaller than the A2 card. Next I distress the bottom using the Distress Ink Antique Linen with a mix of Tea Dye. Then, I stamped the images on top of the panel. For the images I covered the parts with Washi each each time I stamped my image to create the multi colored look. Next, I stamped sentiment below the tool,stamped the tool box,and nails at the bottom to finish off my card.

I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you so much for visiting.
Have a Great Week :)

Hello Everyone....
Today is the day, Sequin Shaker Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.

For my card I used the stamp set from Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine to create my shaker card.

I adhere the clear cardstock, adhere the foam tape around the frame, added the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh  Aquamarine, Marshmallow, Pink Blush, Lemon Meringue, Marigold, and Metallic Gold on top of the stamped card base then adhere the frame on top to create the shaker.

BLOG HOP Waffle Flower with Pretty Pink Posh

Hello...hello... I hope you enjoyed your weekend.
Waffle Flower is kicking the week with a Blog Hop.
Waffle Flower Crafts is sponsoring the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop 
hosted by Pretty Pink Posh on April 26th! 

So don't forget to link-up your fun Sequin Shaker card on April 26.

Here's my shaker card featuring the Bowtiful stamp from Waffle Flower and the gorgeous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Marigold, Orchids, and Amethyst

First I created my card base, then created a panel using kraft cardstock, die-cut with bowtiful die "the smaller bow" I then drew some faux stitch lines on the border of my die-cut.

Then stamped the tiny stars from the bowtiful set and my panel is ready. But before adhering the acrylic on at back of my kraft panel I then stamped my bow images with different colored inks on my card then voila!

I then adhere some foam squares surrounding each bow so the sequins will not fall.  To finish off the card, I then stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock and adhere it on a gold foil cardstock and I am done.

Here's the final look of the card.

I hope you enjoyed.

CAS(E) this Sketch & Runway Inspired

Hello...Everyone, today is a sad post for me since this will be my first time stepping down on a design team
CAS(E) this sketch and Runway Inspired Challenge.
I just want to say THANK YOU to Chrissy and Jennifer, for they have given me a chance to grow
and learn lots with these challenges and I am very grateful :)

For these combined challenge...I really love how this turned out.
I hope that you will enjoy the sketch *-* wink..wink.

For my take, first I created a card base and heat embossed the new Wplus9 release Borders & Backgrounds 4 with white embossing powder on a black cardstock as a panel.

Then I created my own flower image using refill inks (papertrey ink & distress ink). After creating my own image on a watercolor paper. I simply fussy cut the flower and leaves image....though a lot of cutting, but its all worth it.

As for the sentiments I also used the new Wplus9 April release Hand Lettered Hello. Then for the final touch I did use some distress ink splatter after I dilute it with plenty of water.

Here's the full card.

I hope you enjoyed my card.
I cannot wait to see what you guys will create with this combined collaboration of challenges :)

Thank you so much for visiting me.
Have a Fabulous week creating :)

Live Laugh Love & Giveaway

EDITED: Congratulations Kimberly per random generator #33 you are a winner!

Please e-mail me so can give you your prize! 
Thank you so much for all of you who participated....we will have more Giveaways to come :)


Hello...hello...I hope you are having a gorgeous week, today is my official (first) post for Waffle Flower as one of their design team member. I am so excited to share with you some of the products of this new company.

Today I am showcasing the ROCK MY WORD and BOWTIFUL stamp set.


For my first card, I first created my card base then colored only the sides of my card base with copics to match the color that I used on my card panel. On the card panel I stamped the sentiment that is included in the set "Live Laugh Love". The lines that you see that I created to mimic the square image, is also from the set. Although, you can also use this as a grass as well :).

To create the bow, I die-cut the middle of the panel using the coordinating die from the Bowtiful stamp set and I also die-cut the PTI raspberry fizz cardstock five times and glue them together, to create a great dimension. To finish off the card I splatter it with Studio Calico in Shine and used the Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Lemon Meringue, Marshmallow. and Sparkling Clear.

Here's the full image of the card.

For my second card I started stamping the tiny heart image from Bowtiful Stamp set. I then stamped the tiny rocks from the Rock My World first on the card base then some on a separate cardstock, where I fuss cut some. I adhere the tiny rocks with foam dots to create a holder for my sentiment from Bowtiful and added the coordinating stamp and die. You can also see the bottom of the rocks where I added the grass image and added more grass using Copic markers.

Here's the full image.

For my final card, I first stamped one of the rock image then stamped the tiny rock around the big rock to create a flower.

After stamping, I then fussy cut the flower image and added some foam dots for dimension. The tiny flower is also included from the Rock My World stamp set, which I stamped the back side first then stamped the flower outline image. Stamping the flower this way creates more depth to the image as a whole. As for the sentiment I used the "Hello" and "Enjoy the day!" from Rock My World. The"Enjoy the day" is part of a much larger sentiment from "Hope that you slept like a Rock Enjoy the day!" I just mask the other sentiment with washi and viola! To finish of the card I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and there you have it :)

Here's the full card image.

In celebration of the new release of Waffle Flower products, I have a $10.00 gift certificate to give away for the Waffle Flower Crafts store.  Just leave me a comment by 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 22 for your chance to win. 

I also have a coupon for the Super CUTE heart die for FREE with your order of $50.00.  

I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you so much for visiting me :)
Have a Gorgeous week!

CAS(E) this Sketch #71

Hello....hello...its time for another....

For this week we are using Gayatri's sketch....who doesn't love a splattering
here and there?

As for my take I splatter my card base with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in GOLD and BLACK.  For my focal point I die-cut the Wplus 9 LABEL LAYERS 3 and stamped the image frame from VERY VINTAGE FLORAL in black. For my flower image I used the Wplus9 HOPE SEED CO I just colored the flower with copics. To finish off my card then, I used the Wplus9 BASIC BANNERS stamp set and die.

Here's the full image.

I hope you enjoyed my fast simple take.
