Waffle Flower December 2020 Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Waffle Flower’s Slimlines & Alphabets Release day! This month, Waffle Flower is looking towards the new year with 4 stamp sets, 4 dies, 2 alpha die sets, and 4 stencils! All of the products from this month’s release are already waiting for you on the website here!

 

For the floral lovers out there, Waffle Flower has the beautiful set Tender Blooms (stampdiecombo) and coordinating sentiment set Tender Thoughts (stamp). These sets are just what you need to create cards of comfort, sympathy, and care. (We all could use more of that, wouldn’t you agree?) For stamps, there’s also the New Beginning stamp and stencil (stampstencilcombo) that can be used independently or together to make cards for the new year and fresh beginnings! 

 

This month, Waffle Flower’s release also includes everybody’s new obsession, slimline dies! There’s the Slim Lacy Layers (die), Slimline Window Trio (die), Slimline Stripes (die), and the Slimline Angled Panel (die). If you’re a fan of the slimline card, you’ll have lots to choose from!

 

If you’re looking to up your sentiment game, Waffle Flower is rolling out two new alpha die sets and a fun stamp/die set of sentiment add-ons! The Bold Alpha Die set (die) is a classic block alpha set and includes a full set of letters and numbers! The second alpha die set, the Wide Alpha Die set (die), has a different profile (wider and shorter) that is ideal for stacking and for larger slimline cards. To pair with the new alpha dies, there’s the fun Sentiment Additions Stamp Set (stampdiecombo). This set has words and phrases that can be used with letter dies, word dies, and other sentiments. Great for bringing new life to dies and stamps you already have!

 

Last but not least, Waffle Flower has added the Stripe Plaids Trio (stencil), Buffalo Plaid Stencil (stencil), and Infinite Triangles Stencil (stencil) to their growing stencil collection. Each of the stencils in the Stripe Plaids Trio and Buffalo Plaid Stencil sets can be used alone or together to create a variety of striped and plaid patterns in your choice of colors. The best part is that these plaid stencils measure 6”X9” and can be used on A2, A7, and slimline cards! If you’re a fan of repeating pattern stencils (like last month’s Rings Builder and Infinite Petals), the Infinite Triangles Stencil can also make multiple patterns just by rotating the stencil or flipping it  over.  

 

To see all these new goodies in action, hop along with us! Everyone’s got some fun and creative ideas to share and get your imagination flowing!  

First up is a quick card I made with the Slimline Angled Panel Die! This die is just like the original Angled Panel die just in slimline size. It's the same scale as the original so that means it also works with the diagonal striped papers in the JJ's Rainbow pad and Christmas Stripes pad. For this card, I used the JJ's Rainbow paper behind the die cut. 


The sentiment on this one uses the new Wide Alpha die and the Sentiment Additions combo. The profile of the wide alphas work great on the expanded slimline size. The "forever" sentiment is from the Sentiment Additions set. I love how the flowy font works with the block die cut letters! 


This next card uses the Stripe Plaids Trio stencil set. This set has 3 different patterns including this one with the triple stripes. I like that these stencils measure 6"X9" so they work where stamps (A2, A7, and slimline cards). And as you can see, they work on a diagonal too! 


To add a bit of shine, I die cut the stenciled panel with 2 square nesting dies to create the negative "frame" with some gold glitter paper. The sentiment is from the Herringbone Sentiment set and it's stamped on a label from the Classic Frames die set. This is a holiday card, but I can definitely see it for lots of other occasions!


My last card today uses the same Stripe Plaids Trio stencil set as the last card. I used the other two stencils in the set, the wide stripe and the narrow stripe. I love how the stripes look on kraft! I used a white pigment ink and blended very lightly to get a softer look. 


The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas combo and added a couple die cuts from the Holiday Lights die. I can't wait to try plaids on other color cardstocks!
