Hi there! Today, I have the pleasure in helping Waffleflower Stamps celebrate their newest release as a stop on the blog hop! You should have arrived here from the amazing Jessica Frost Ballas’s blog, and your next stop is Alix Davis’s blog. Waffleflower has some suuuuper cute stuff debuting this month, with a little something for everyone- from flowers to cakes to horse drawn carriages…. So many fun new stamps and dies! You can find all of the new goodies here. I have two projects to share with you today, but there are some fun giveaways and promotions going on, so be sure to read all the way to the end! Let’s get started with the details!
For my first project, I wanted to combine that fantastic new Cake Cover Plate die with the adorable little couple in Wedding Day. I began by die cutting the Cake Cover Plate die and sentiment (included in the Cake die set!) from some sparkly white glitter card stock, reserving the icing pieces to create an almost ruffled tone-on-tone white cake! I stamped the bride and groom from Wedding Day on some white, Copic-friendly card stock, then used my Copic markers to color them in. They are the perfect size to be little wedding cake toppers on top of the Cake die cut!
I backed the cake die cut on a panel of acetate, adding the bride and groom and greeting die cuts on top of the cake, as well as inserting the scalloped die cuts from the cake’s interior to create that ruffled effect on the cake. I did some ink blending on my aqua card base, creating an aqua ombre panel, then filled the shaker with some sparkly sequins. Lots of white and sparkles are just what the doctor ordered for a wedding card, don’t you think?
For my second card, I used the stunning new Wild Roses stamp set. Waffleflower has been knocking their new floral sets out of the park, and this new Wild Roses stamp set is no exception. These gorgeous blooms are massive, perfect for getting in some really good shading practice. I first stamped several of the blooms and some of the foliage onto some watercolor paper using waterproof ink. I then used Fun Stamper’s Journey watercolor pencils to go to town on the shading. I love images like this that you can really hone your shading skills. I can’t wait to try some no-line coloring with these gorgeous blooms!
After I’d finished watercoloring the flowers, I blended some aqua ink in the corner of a pale aqua panel using blending brushes, then arranged the Wild Roses in a little cluster in the corner and adhered them with foam adhesive. I added a sentiment from the new Go Girl stamp set that I heat embossed on a strip of vellum and hid the adhesive behind some of the flowers. I added a few gems to add a hint of sparkle!
