Waffle Flower's 2018 December release is sweet and simple. Halftone Background stamp set features a gradient of dots that can be overlapped and stamped in two colors to create the look of a blended background. In this release you will also find the lovely Thinking of You stamp set featuring the same girl from our Always stamp set hugging the cutest cat ever. The Cookie Love Stamp Set (stamp, die, combo), illustrated by Big Bear and Bird, is perfect for anyone wanting to send some love or get a jump on their Valentine’s cards!

Today I'm combining the brand new Thinking of You girl and kitty stamp with the super awesome and versatile Halftone Background. The Halftone Background works with everything. It's amazing! I want to make all the backgrounds with it!
The girl from the Thinking of You girl stamp set was stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and masked with masking paper. The background was lightly inked with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks and then the Halftone Background was stamped over the masked image with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I switched up the inks because the Distress Oxide inks have pigment ink in them and the coverage is a bit better! I removed the mask and just fell in love with the background. So awesome!
The girl and kitty were colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I didn't bother masking the leaves and flowers as they are pretty small. The incredible thing is that Distress Inks and Zig Clean Color markers are both water based and work well together. That makes my life easier and I'm all about that, aren't you?!!!
A sentiment from the Thinking of You girl stamp set was stamped on Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The gray cardstock strip was adhered to a Passionate Pink Cardstock strip and adhered along the bottom edge of the card front.
The design was finished with a scattering of Honey Bee Stamps Hug Me hearts and a layer of Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard on the flowers.
