Hello everyone! Waffle Flower just had a new release for May which you can check out HERE <----click! and I'm part of a blog hop today to celebrate it! Stay tuned for the GIVEAWAY info as well!
If you didn't get here from the the Waffle Flower blog you can start on the hop HERE <-----click!
Here's what I created:
I am really falling in love with all of Waffle Flowers quirky sets - but the second I saw this new Carnations set I KNEW I had to ink it up first. I have a thing for carnations - I just really like them!
The Carnations set is actually a layering set - it includes all the images to stamp in different ink colors to get a really quick and easy layered look. I'll have to play around with that next time I use this set (and the stamps are all labelled and there's a chart showing how to layer it all making it quick and easy to do).
Instead I white heat embossed the outline images of the set onto watercolor paper, and then pulled out the new-to-me and new-on-the-market Arteza 96 set of Real Brush Pens (b/c y'all KNOW I was holding out for the big set!).
I scribbled on the marker color on the images, then moved the color around with a water brush. First impression of the markers is I really like them and the colors - a more detailed video about them will be coming soon!
After I coloured in all the flowers I die cut them with the coordinating dies, and decided to cluster them all together into a bouquet for the front of my card. I used a stencil from Echo Park on my card base and spread Nuvo's Moonstone Glimmer paste over it (SO sparkly in real life!), then once dry I adhered all the flowers to it with liquid adhesive and foam tape.
The sentiments are from the Carnations set and I stamped them with black ink and adhered them with foam tape.
I finished off the inside of the card by stamping the images with dye inks and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

Here's the full hop list in case you miss any of them:
I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the products have little icons below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. You can hover over the icons and it will tell you what store that link will take you to. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
