Waffle Flower Crafts February Release Hop - FIVE Different Projects, Including an Element Made with Wood!

 
Hi Friends! 
Welcome to Waffle Flower’s February 2021 Release day! I’m THRILLED to be blog hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower, and can't wait to share five different projects I made with several of the new stamp and die sets from this release!

You may have come from the blog of Dana Kirby, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Waffle Flower blog. 

 
Playing with all the fresh Spring images and dies sure made the snow storms sweeping through the midwest this week a lot less blustery! What fun these sets are ... let's take a look !


The
Hopeful Girl Stamp Set is simply adorable featuring a prayerful girl, and a bunny (used for an Easter card later in this post). It's the perfect large focal image to use when you want to send healing thoughts to someone special. 

There is also a cluster of flowers in this set that I've used many different ways on all but one of my cards today. On this card, I used the flowers to create a floral sweatshirt for our prayerful girl. I also cut a portion of the floral spray off to tuck behind the girl to balance the card design out. It's perfect for when you need to add a little something to an almost-finished card.

The background of this card is from the Stitchable Pinking Oval Die Set. What fabulous texture, and you can either leave all the holes intact, remove them all, or leave a portion of them like I've done here. The wonderfully modern sentiment is from  Caring Hands Sentiments Stamp Set, and for the second line of the sentiment, I used a pink alcohol marker over the white embossing to change the color!

This card features a pair of hands from Caring Hands Stamp Set, which is a cool set for a variety of different hand gestures. I added a heart from Caring Hands Sentiments Stamp Set in the middle of the hands to convey the love that I'm sending.

Super love the font and spacing of the sentiment on this one. To fill in the space at the bottom of the card I added the florals from the Hopeful Girl Stamp Set and colored them in a little more modern style with the two-toned leaves. 



I was really excited to try out the embroidery hoop dies! The Embroidery Hoops Die Set work well with ... WOOD! Yep, I ran some balsa wood thru with the dies and it came out perfectly, just like an actual embroidery hoop!
 
 
 

And just like the real embroidery hoop, the screw is gold metal!
 
For the contents of the hoop, I cut a piece of lace (from a giant table cloth I found at a garage sale years ago for $1!) to give the feeling of stitching, without actually doing the stitching.
 
 

This card also features the new alpha dies! The Retro Outline Alpha Die Set is a classic font that comes with an outline layer. This layer helps differentiate the letters if you have to layer them together like I have here. 


Here's a second card featuring a wooden embroidery hoop, but this is a more modern and streamlined card than the lacey concoction we just saw.


Instead of a piece of lace, I die cut a piece of canvas fabric to go inside the hoop. In addition to including a new texture, I love how the thick, bold, red-stamped letters highlight the existing stitching in the fabric. Again, like the lace in the prior card, this gives the effect of stitching without actually stitching.


Finally, I was happy to use the bunny from the
Hopeful Girl Stamp Set to make an Easter card!



So surprised to find that the coordinating die cuts out the bunnie's hands, so now he can hold things, like the single flower bloom! How sweet : )


The alpha dies allowed me to make my own sentiment, Hoppy Easter. For these alphas, I didn't use the outline layer like in the previous card so you can see the difference. With more layers going on with this card I like this simpler version.
 
The many layers of the Lacey Ovals Die Set are perfect for this Easter egg-shaped card.

Whew, that was a lot of fun, thanks for checking all my cards out! What was your favorite card? Anything you'd like to try?
