Waffle Flower May 2019 Birthday Release Blog Hop

Hi everyone! It's time for the Waffle Flower May 2019 Release! There's so many fun and new things going at Waffle Flower starting with a new look for our stamp packaging. Starting this month, all of our 4x6 stamp sets will be packaged in our new rainbow packaging.

On the design front, we are kicking off a new series with illustrator Kamo that features different cities around the world! Our first stop is London - Oyez (stamp, die, combo) will sure to help you send some love to those who hold this amazing city close to their heart. 

This month, you will also find beautiful florals in Wild Roses (stamp, die, combo); make fun and clever cards with Go Girl (stamp, die, combo); and send happy wishes to some sweet couples on their Wedding Day (stamp, die, combo), which works with the brand new Cake Panel Die (die) that can also be used for birthdays and celebrations! If you are getting ready for Father's Day, the Be Him Sentiments (stamp) goes great with our popular Be Her (stamp, die, combo) and Be Him (stamp, die, combo) sets with sentiments for Dads and Grandpas.

These next few cards are made with my new stamp and coordinating die set called Go Girl.  The stamps and dies of these builder sets are meant to be mixed and matched together to create totally personalized cards for all the special women in your life.   The sets this month are just the first in a series (cannot wait for you to see the rest!).  I have not been able to stop playing with these sets since I got them!  I love that I can personalize each card to match the recipient.  For this first card, I used mostly dies to create.  (The little flower is from another set).  For the hair, I've been using woodgrain paper and it looks so neat!

For this version, I used the dies again but I stamped the sunglasses.  So fun!

This last version is the simplest but probably one of my favorites.  This time I used the negative cut of the hair and then added a pair of die cut glasses backed with some vellum.  How fun is that?  I have a lot more samples to show you later this month and hope to have a video soon!

This next card features the Oyez set by Kamo.  She makes the cutest stamps!  When I saw the little figure with the umbrella, I knew I wanted to make a rain scene.  The background is done with the Wave Texture die and some cloud dies.  

Speaking of Kamo stamps, she also has a set this month called Wedding Day.  This set works perfectly with a new die I designed called the Cake Panel Die.  This die cuts an A2-sized panel with a cake.  To decorate the cake, the set comes with a variety of cake picks and other toppings.  It's one of those dies I will be turning to again and again because it can be used with so many other stamps and dies.  

Before I go, here's one more cake card.  This card uses the Cake Panel die again, but this time I trimmed it down to just the cake.  This die set comes with two types of birthday candles (straight and spiral).  I colored both the candles and the cake with pastel-colored Copics and added a sentiment from the Bold Sentiments set.  

I have so many projects for this month that I can't share them all today!  Here's some sneaks of what's coming!
