Waffle Flower August 2021 Blog Hop

 


Hi guys! Hope you all are having a wonderful August! We hope you had fun with our Christmas in July release last month. This month's release is a bit smaller, but still filled with some goodies for everyone!

The first card I'm sharing today uses the new set by Liz Mytinger called Coffee Shop Hamsters. This set works perfectly with the new Storebuilder Die set to make little cafe scenes like this. 

This month there's also some other coffee-themed goodies like the Nesting Coffee Cup Die set. I used this set to make some fun holiday tags. The tag on the left uses another new die from the Nesting Square Frame Die set. The block frames in this set are so versatile! Even for Santa's buckle! For my other tag, I used the new Poinsettia Blooms set to create a cup that reminds of a holiday Starbucks cup. 


Last up today is a super simple card I made using the Nesting Rectangle Frames Die set. Instead of using it for the frame, I used the die to cut the negative. The resulting die cut gave me perfect negative space to fill with colorful pom poms. 


I used the smallest pom poms in my stash for this one and it was so much fun! You may have seen another pom pom card from me last month, and I was so happy to pull them out again this month! Really, it's the most simple card, but those are the ones I love the most. The sentiment is from the new set Coffee Shop Talk.


That's it for me for the hop, but don't forget to check out our amazing guests and DT! The fantastic Laura Bassen is next, but here's the whole hop list!

  11. I was hoping to learn what kind of glue you used on the pom poms. I would have used a hot glue gun to make sure they wouldn't go anywhere.
