Waffle Flower July Release Blog Hop

Waffle Flower’s Christmas in July Release is available today! There's lots to see! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from Galina Filippenko's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning and get all the details you'll find them here at the Waffle Flower Blog!

Please note: Waffle Flower didn’t anticipate the popularity of this release and more stamps will be restocked around July 9th and dies around July 21st.

In case you missed them, here are the links to the introduction posts:
Intro to Happy Gnomes and Fa-la-la
Intro to Holly Bird, Nesting Hexagons, Holiday Lights and Reindeer Die
Intro to Poinsettia and Oversized Peace
Intro to Classic Sentiments and Classic Holiday Sentiments


There's lots to see so let's get started! Let me introduce you to the Happy Gnomes!

This scene starts with a distress ink background topped with a Ticket Frame die cut.

I stamped a sentiment from the Classic Holiday Sentiments just inside the frame and arranged all the copic colored images on a piece of plastic the size of my card base. This allowed me to arrange the elements before committing to where they would be placed on the card.
The Happy Gnomes is a wonderful set because there are accessories for different occasions included in the set. A simple change of color and these gnomes are ready for any occasion!

For today’s hop, Waffle Flower is giving away $25 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners.

Reverse Confetti July Release Day 1

Hi Friends! Thanks for stopping by! It's Day one in our Countdown to Confetti!. Today (July 5) through July 7 we'll be showing sneak peeks of the new release. On July 8 all the new products will be available in the store and we'll be celebrating with a blog hop with even more ideas for ways to use the new sets!
There are SEVEN new stamp sets with coordinating dies and FOUR new stand alone Confetti Cuts. Today we're showing the Multi Step Cacti, This Says It All, and the Background Builder stamp set. 
This card made with the Multi Step Cacti starts with a background panel of ombre blue distress ink on the new Cross Tiles Cover Panel.
The cacti are arranged on a Inside Scallop Circle Tag. I cut the tag tab off so only the circle shape remains. The cacti are easy to double stamp to add accents. The pots are line drawings that you can color yourself.

The Hello, Beautiful sentiment is from the This Says It All stamp set and is stamped on one of the new Three Tags.
This CAS card is made with the new Background Builders stamp set. It includes a solid circle and solid stripe and some different patterns that you can stamp over each to create one of a kind looks.
I stamped a rainbow of solid circles and then went over them with a slightly darker shade ink to add the striped, triangle, and dot pattern.

The sentiment is from the This Says It All stamp set. It includes LOTS of sentiments! I stamped it in black and added some black enamel dots for lots of contrast.

I stamped a simple border in yellow and orange along the left margin and I'll call this one done!

Ready to see more designs made with these new stamp sets? Here's a complete list of designers with projects to share today! But before you go! PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT. There will be a $15 gift certificate giveaway to one blog commenter and to one Facebook commenter. You have until noon on July 7 to leave a comment. The winner will be announced on the Reverse Confetti blog at 5pm on July 7.

Spellbinders July 2020 Card Kit & A SALE!

Hi friends! I hope you're having a fabulous 4th of July weekend. It sure is hot outside! Maybe it's time to come in a bit to cool down? My favorite way to take a break is making cards! I find it so relaxing and when I'm done I have lots of pretty cards to share! 
Today I'm playing with the Spellbinders July 2020 card kit! What a treat delivered to my front door every month! It's loaded with EVERYTHING you need to make a TON of cards! I mean.. pattern paper, card stock, die cut images, stickers, chipboard frames and so much more! Have a peek....
You even receive the card bases, envelopes, double sided tape adhesive, adhesive foam tape, a stamp kit, and even a die cut set! What a great value at $38.50!!

I'm linking up to Craftyhazelnut's Pattern Paper Challenge because I do love my pattern paper and it's always fun playing along at challenges. I love seeing what everyone is making with their pretty papers!

I die cut lots of pretty detailed borders with gold foil paper (also in the kit) to add to my designs. There are gold foil details throughout the collection so there's lots of sparkle and shine.   The kit even includes a pack of sequins for embellishing your designs.
I'm only showing three designs today - I've got five more I'll show later in the month! And I could still make more! There is alot to work with in this kit, and when I'm all done, I'll still have the stamps and die cut set!
The images are beautiful birds and vintage keys and florals in navy, burgundy and emerald. The kit includes a 6" square paper pad for easy mixing and matching.
I used the double sided journaling cards to adhere inside the chipboard frames . I left the rounded card edges exposed (they're bigger than the frames). The vintage prints are lovely.
This kit would be a welcome addition tucked in my bag for a road trip because it includes everything you need to make. The only other thing you'd need to pack is a paper trimmer. The die cut images and stamps can be created before you leave the house of left off your project and saved for later. 
If you love the kit and want to give it a try use code  "JULY" and receive 10% Off the first month for new subscriptionsClick here to see all the Spellbinder Club Kits. 

I like that everything is selected and assembled for me. Papers and die cut images are ready to work with and it's all delivered to my front door every month. If you don't love a surprise that's ok too because you can always order the kit after it's revealed on the first of the month.

There's lots of sales going on.. just one more I want to make sure you know about..


You can find the Spellbinders 4th of July Sale here!

Keep making and more than anything else HAVE FUN!
