Waffle Flower June 2020 Release Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  

We had a late start this month, but we're so glad to be back!  

Waffle Flower’s June Release is available today! Besides 6 new enamel dots to match our everyday papers, we have some basic nesting dies and cute stamps in this release. Including the much anticipated Slim Layers, Stars and Banners; a new addition to our Oversized Word series: Oversized Hugs; the most adorable critters in Sea Birthday; the popular mail theme with a marine twist in Mermaid Mail, and the versatile Under the Sea sentiments and panel die to complete our release for this Summer.

In case you missed them, here are the links to the introduction posts:

New Updated Stamps & Dies for June

I've got a couple of cards to share today using some of the new goodies! I'm originally from Hawaii, so I have a soft spot for stamps and dies that have do with the ocean.  My first card uses the Under the Sea frame die and the Sea Birthday set by Big Bear and Bird.  The Under the Sea die set is a frame die but I decided to use the pieces on this slimline card.  Did you know that we have slimline nesting dies this month?  I think I'm obsessed with them!

Scene building sets are some of my absolute favorite and both of the stamp sets this month are perfect for scene building!  That seahorse stamp is the cutest!!!


This month, we also have a sentiment set that coordinates with both of the stamps sets. Great for ocean-themed cards in a fun font that matches so well with these whimsical designs!


This next card uses the Under the Sea frame die again, but this time it's as a frame for a jellyfish from the Mermaid Mail set from Cassie Loizeaux!  This frame is perfect for layering over a soft blended background like this one which was done with Distress Inks. The jellyfish is colored with watercolors using my Karin markers.  


It's so subtle that I couldn't really get a great pic of it, but the jellyfish is washed with some glitter pen. I just love the look of the glitter pen over the watercolors.



That's it for me today, but I know the other folks on the hop have even more amazing stuff to share!  The always fantastic Keeway is next on the hop, but here's the whole list in case.

  1. Hello, JJ,
    these cards are adooorable! Thank you for sharing your art!
    I love slimline cards and I was born and raised on the shore, so I have spent half of my life a few metres away from sea. I love all crafts related to the sea.
    Mahalo!
