Hello everyone, welcome to the Waffle Flower January 2019 Release Blog Hop!
Starting with this release, all of our dies will come de-tabbed and pre-arranged on magnet storage sheets. Dies smaller than 4"x4" are still adhered to a backer card with tape. Yay!!!!
We've added Enamel Dots to our line. They are customized to include lots of the tiny dots that our cardmakers love. We have three designs for this release. The Clean & Clear set includes both white and clear dots, perfect for adding dimension and shine to any color combination. Stardust includes white and silver glitter dots. Up & Running features 7 colors of dots from the rainbow of Waffle Flower ink colors. Don't forget to check them out in the ink section on our website!
We have 5 new stamp sets and 7 dies in this release.
The big, elegant flowers from Magnolia (stamp, die, combo) was illustrated by Karla Jodoin and we have many more beautiful designs by her to come! These sets are great for coloring. The exquisite details in the stamp set will make it easy for even beginners to enjoy. You will also find the the sweet Group Hug (stamp, die, combo), illustrated by Big Bear & Bird. We just love how this brings us a warm and fuzzy feeling. The Here for You (stamp, die, combo) is designed by our fellow cardmaker and designer, JJ Bolton. It has all the sentiments you need to send a heartfelt message to your friends and family in their time of need. The Favorite Valentine (stamp, die, combo), illustrated by Kamo, is the cutest for creating valentines for the classroom and beyond. We also included a 3x4 Spice Pot stamp set for quick cards this month.
The two stand alone panel dies in this release were designed by JJ Bolton and they both work great with the Here For You Stamp Set. The Tile Panel (die) is a modern but classic pattern and is so versatile that it can be used for both feminine and masculine cards. The Painted Landscape (die) is a unique die that makes it easy to create a mountain landscape scene with depth and texture, all in one layer!

Today I'm sharing two different themed card created in the same color scheme: peachy red! Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold is one of my favorite color combinations and it works just as beautifully for a non-traditional colored Valentine's card as it does for a thinking of you design. Both background were inked and then stenciled with the Simon Says Stamp Large Falling Hearts Stencil.
Both cards feature sentiments stamped with Abandoned Coral Ink rather than a black ink. This was a conscious decision to better coordinate with the overall look and feel of each card design.
The Valentine Card features sentiments from the Favorite Valentine Stamp Set and the hugs card features sentiments from the Group Hug Stamp Set on the front of the card and Here For You Stamp Set on the inside of the design.
The borders on the Valentine Card were created by inking plain white cardstock with Abandoned Coral Ink in order to perfectly match the inked and stenciled strip. The large heart die from the Favorite Valentine Die Set was die cut from the inked and stenciled panel and then inked over with Abandoned Coral for a solid heart that shows up more against the rest of the design. The heart was stamped with greetings from the Favorite Valentine Set using clear embossing ink and heat setting with white embossing powder. The heart was adhered directly to the card base and the rest of the panel was adhered with foam adhesive.
Images for both cards were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The images were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink, colored, and die cut with the coordinating Favorite Valentine and Group Hug dies.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were used to embellish some of the hearts on the Valentine's card and Heart jewels were glued to each design for a bit of dimensional embellishment. A black gelly roll pen was used to add detail to eyes, noses, etc. on the images.
