Waffle Flower October 2021 Release Blog Hop

 

Welcome to Waffle Flower’s October 2021 Release Day! I’m excited to be hopping today with the wonderful folks from Waffle Flower and so many amazing guests! I can't wait to show you all the new goodies that just hit the Waffle Flower website! This month, we've got a fun new line of shaker dies and cards and along with some Waffle Flower favorites! So settle in because I have a ton to share today!


If you've visited my blog before, you may already know that I'm a fan of shaker cards. It's one of types of cards that never get old for me! That's why I've been a busy bee playing with all the new shaker supplies this month. My first card uses the Solar System stamp and die set to create an outer space scene with a sparkly shaker planet! Waffle Flower has two types of shaker covers, slim and puffy, and the Solar System set works with the puffy covers! The puffy covers are great for larger fillers like XL sequins and thicker crystals. 



I backed the planet with a piece of Yupo paper colored with alcohol inks and gold mixative. I used alcohol inks for the smaller planets too. I love the way the alcohol inks blend and streak to create amazing patterns. 


The background is just black cardstock blended white ink, splattered white paint, and a few "stars" penned with a white gel pen. The final touches are the stars and ring made with holographic cardstock. This was soooo much fun to make! 


My second card also uses a puffy shaker cover, but this time it's a heart! Lately, I've been making stamp cards, postage stamp cards that is! I made my version of a Love postage stamp down to the "FOREVER" postage (this stamp is from the Oversized Love stamp set). 


This next card also uses the puffy heart shaker covers, this time in triplicate! The number one reason I love the puffy covers is that the size allows you to get really creative with fillers. this time I dipped into my mini pom pom collection and packed these hearts full!


I used a mix of 5mm and 7mm pom poms for this card. Such a fun way to use pom poms!


My third card uses the last puffy shaker cover, the star covers. This time I added a bit of color by using alcohol inks and gold mixative to the inside of the shaker cover. The ink is translucent so you can still see the gold sequins and fillers inside. The star shaker was a natural match with the new Sunburst Panel die


The next card uses the the slim shaker covers that comes with 3 sizes of circle shaker covers. The two larger shaker covers are the perfect size to create your own shaker snowman. 


Just add a texture background (Wave Texture Background) and a fun candy stripe frame (Nesting Rectangle Frames covered with a bit of Christmas Stripes paper). The scarf and carrot nose are handcut, but the hat is from the Be Him set and the "coal" are enamel dots. 


Last but not least is a double shaker! The focal shaker uses the Solar System set to create a happy little sun! Mr. Sunshine is layered over a background Infinity Shaker (aka a frameless shaker). The sentiment is a new version of the Oversized Word series, this time in a fun print font! The Oversized Hey Hi Hello Print die set includes 3 word dies (hello, hi, and hey) along with shadow dies. These dies work with subsentiments you may already have with the original Oversized Hello set


I used a ton of glitter, sequins, crystals and more with this card, and I loved every minute of it! You may need sunglasses for this one;)


Whew! That was a post and half, wasn't it? I hope that you had fun seeing all the shaker covers and dies in action.
