Waffle Flower January 2020 Release Blog Hop


Happy New Year and welcome to the first Waffle Flower release day of 2020! 


In our January release, Waffle Flower is excited to bring you another gorgeous floral set illustrated by Karla Jodoin called Blossoms (stampdiecombo). Pair it with the brand new Oversized Love (stampdiecombo) or any of the popular oversized words designed by our fellow cardmaker JJ Bolton for a bold and sophisticated look. 

You will also find the sweetest couple of critters in Love You Bunnies (stampdiecombo) and a fun 2-step-layering lovebird letter carrier in Special Delivery (stamp) illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux. The Nesting Postage set (die) includes 6 stand-alone dies in the shape of a classic postage stamp to help you complete the look of a Special Delivery and is available with the stamp set as a combo

If you can’t get enough panel dies, Waffle Flower has 3 for you this month!  The Hearts panel die features a full A2-sized pattern of adorable mini hearts with stitching detail around the edges. The Sweet Scallops panel die combines the look of classic stripes with the charm of scallops.  It has a built-in diamond panel that works with many of the Waffle Flower sentiment sets.  Last but not least, there is the Fresh Rainbow panel die and coordinating Fresh Rainbow Sentiment stamp set (stamp, die, combo).  This combo will brighten up your new year!   

To see the whole collection visit:   

Now let's see some of the these new goodies in action!  My first card uses a couple of my new die designs, Oversized Love and Hearts panel.  I just love the font and size of the "love you" word die!  For this card, I blended some inks onto a scrap piece of paper and then die cut.  Then I did a bit of misting and splattering with some white gouache.  


For the background, I used the panel die but did not break up the pieces.  The white-on-white is such a cute and easy background.  The sentiment strip uses a stamp from the companion Oversized Love stamp set.  I love how you can nest the sentiment strip into the loops and curves of the word die.  I love the little details like this.


I used the same word die for my next card, but this time I went dramatic!  I layered two word die cuts over a floral background using Karla Jodoin's new set Blossoms.  I stamped the flowers and clear embossed them to get this shiny black on matte black look.  The I just added a sprinkling of mirrored gems.  I love that you can get two totally different looks with the same die!


This next card uses the sweet Love You Bunnies set from Cassie Loizeaux!  That set is full of the cutest stamps!  I used one of the bunnies to create a support card using a sentiment from the Fresh Rainbows sentiment set.  The background was created by layering the Hearts panel die over strips made with the Vertical Stripes die.  You can use the stripes as is to get the split color look or offset to get a solid color look.  


The last card for today features the Fresh Rainbow panel die and sentiments. Being from Hawai‘i basically means that you are born loving rainbows 😉(they don't call it the Rainbow State for nothing).  So it's no surprise that I like paper rainbows too! 


For this card, the new panel die does most of the heavy lifting and just needed a bit of blended and misted ink and die cut clouds (using the previously-released Rainbow Panel die set).  This sentiment from the Fresh Rainbow sentiment set was just what I was needing for the start of this new year!


That's it for me today!  The Design Team has really outdone themselves this month creating cards with the new release, so I really hope you get a chance to click through the whole hop!  Here’s the full blog hop list, so you don’t miss a thing!
