Waffle Flower January 2022 Release Blog Hop


Welcome to Waffle Flower’s January 2022 Release Day! After a long break, we're back with the first release of the year! We've been working on new designs and new products for so many months and we're so excited to start sharing them now! The new release is out on the Waffle Flower website today! 


One of the things that we've been working on is FOIL PLATES! Yay! We have been working on foil plates behind the scenes for quite a while with lots of back and forth on design to make sure we had the best foil plates that could be produced. The result are foil plates that are so much fun and easy to use! 


One of the first foil plate designs is the Oversized Hello! You are already familiar with the Oversized Hello stamp and die, and the foil version looks so cool! I have a lot more to share using this plate, but this first one uses the plate with blended ink and splattering techniques. This card came from an experiment with splattering and spraying after foiling which gives a much different look to foil. Kind of an antiquey, burnished look. 



I also blended some Distress Ink Oxides over the foil and added some fun drops. Over the next few weeks, I hope to share some of my other experiments:)


This next card uses the next in the Flat Landscape Stencil series. This card was so much fun to make and so easy! This card uses the entire stencil, so it's bigger than a normal A2 size. To me it looks like an art print, so I thought I'd keep the sentiment just on the inside;)




For an added detail, I used a white gel pen to add highlights and waves on the water. So easy to do and adds that little extra something. 


Don't forget to check out all the stops in the hope today! There's lots of fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies! Next on the hop is the fantastic Cathy Zielske (here's the full list so you don't miss a stop)!

  27. The Hello hot foil looks amazing. The colours you chose warms my heart. Such a happy, springy or fuzzy feeling. I love the A2 stencil, it's magical. Love the build up to the end result ❤️ the hills reminds me of our Durbanville Hills here in Bothasig. Every morning the sun rises and greets me from behind the hills. Lovely creations JJ
