Waffle Flower Day Birthday Celebration - Day 2 - Best of Helen Dardik & Giveaway!

It's Waffle Flower's 6th Birthday this month! We've got lots of fun planned! Through Sunday April 5th we'll be sharing lots of projects to inspire you to create. Today is Day 2 and we're celebrating the Best of Helen Dardik designs.
You can see all the Waffle Flower designs by Helen Dardik here. Helen's style is fun and filled with fantasy! You'll find gorgeous florals and anime style characters. I've loved the Magical Flower die series from first site.  And if you love her style you better read this post all the way to the bottom! 
I started with a color block background of colorful card stock. Next I cut a Nested Dome from white card stock, inlayed a panel of red card stock, and adhered the Magical Flower die inside. The simple sentiment is from the Enveloper Hugs stamp set. 
The Nested Domes make beautiful arched windows. With the simple addition of the topper and wood embossed base it turns into a pretty bell enclosure perfect for shakers and more. 
It wouldn't be a birthday without gifts right? Check out the Waffle Flower Instagram where you'll find the Best of Helen Dardik bundle. On You Tube you'll find a giveaway for a 50 gift certificate to the Waffle Flower Store!

Good Luck!

Crafty Hugs

Hi friends!  I know it's getting tougher every day to try to live life as normal.  I hope you'e making the most of it perhaps spending time with family and finding time to make.   My craft room has always brought me peace of mind and a sweet escape from life's challenges.  That's more important today than ever. 

Today I'm playing with the REVERSE CONFETTI  Crafty Critters stamp set!   They just make me smile and I hope they make you smile too!
I cut colorful strips of Confetti Colors card stock in strips 1/2" wide. I taped them together on their reverse side and then adhered the Split Circles Cover Panel over it. I trimmed the edges that were peeking out from behind the panel and then adhered the assembled panel to a card base. 
To keep the cute crafty critters from getting lost on the busy background I added a Grid Stitched Tag to layer them on. I love the wonderful craft inspired sentiments in the set. 
Sending you crafty hugs and all the good things!  I hope your happy, healthy and have all you need to help you through this stressful time!
