Waffle Flower October 2019 Release Blog Hop


Happy Fall everyone! 
Today is release day at Waffle Flower and I am so excited to be sharing the October 2019 collection with you! I hope that you had a chance to check out the introductions this week on the Waffle Flower Blog and are ready to see all the goodies in action! This month, Waffle Flower is excited to celebrate Fall with three sets from the amazing illustrator Cassie Loizeaux: Happy Fall (stampdiecombo), Thankful Mouse Stamp Set (stamp)  and Fall Greetings (stampdiecombo). There’s also the beautiful Fall foliage set Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set (stamp) from me:). For flower aficionados there’s the lovely Peony Bouquet  (stampdiecombo) and A Little Note (stampdiecombo) sets from Karla Jodoin. As a perfect companion to the flower sets, there is the Lattice Panel Die (stand alone die).  From the travel series by Kamo, there are two sets this month, Ni Hao (China) (stampdiecombo) and Ciao (Italy) (stampdiecombo)  To add to your sentiment collection, there’s the Oversized Thank You (stampdiecombo) with a beautiful script font. To get you ready to work on your holiday card reserves, there are the new Forestscape Panel Die (stand alone die) , Go Girl Winter Die (dies)  and Holiday Hugs (stampdiecombo)  For more details on the release, be sure to check out the monthly release video (link below) or check out the introductions on the Waffle Flower blog!

I have a ton to share today, so I hope you can stay awhile!  This first card uses my new set called Happy Thanksgiving.  As you can see, this set has a huge handwritten font sentiment and a bunch of fall leaves.  Using the rock and roll technique, I stamped the leaves and branches with Distress Inks on watercolor paper (love the texture it gives).  Then I went back in with water and blended the inks.  


For this next card, I used the adorable Happy Fall set from Cassie!  Such cuteness in that set!  I put the images on a background that I cut with my new die Forestscape.  


Speaking of Forestscape, here's a quick and easy CAS card with the same die.  I used my trusty Nuvo Jewel Drops to decorate the tree and used glitter paper for the snowy ground.  I love using non-traditional colors for the holidays!


These next two cards use my new set Holiday Hugs.  I'm super excited about these dies!  We always talk about cards being "paper hugs" but this set lets you create a card with a real hug!  And of course, there's a set of sentiments to match.  





The set can also be use to create non-hug cards;) . I made this CAS card with just the mittens.  For the background, I made a shiplap type background by cutting stripes of woodgrain paper with the Horizontal Stripes die.  I cut the stripes and then blended some Distress Inks on them.  So much fun to do!


Last but not least, I have a couple of cards that I made with the new dies Go Girl Winter.  This set rounds out the Go Girl series with some fun winter-ish accessories.  For our friends in sunnier climes, there's also a few warm-weather dies too!  For this first card, I used the coffee cup dies and cape dies from the set.


For this card, I used the photo frame from the set (perfectly sized for the Go Girls!).  The fun word die is from the Holiday Hugs die set.  What a happy coincidence that it fits just right on that frame!


Thanks for stopping in and checking out the new release!  If you haven't already, please go check out the other folks on the hop today!  The next and final hop is the awesome Rebecca!  (Here's a full list, just in case)
