New Waffle Flower Stamp Set

We have had our eye on this company for awhile and were thrilled to see them at CHA this year. They have some fresh ideas and some adorable clear stamp sets and dies.  Here is the Flower Leafy stamp set that we used for our store displays.  We thought it had a good collection of images to create some fun projects.

Tip: I like to use a broad brush for making stripes!  I think the Ranger Artist Brush Set has great brushes for the price.

I always like to do this easy white embossing watercolor look on cards.  You first will stamp images on watercolor paper using Versamark ink pad and stamp a pattern.  I've been using the Hero white embossing powder lately and it seems to work really well.  The end result seems to always be smooth and glossy.  Not grainy like others.  I'm not sure if there is any rule of thumb, but I will watercolor the background first.  I let that dry and then I will go back and watercolor the smaller items, like the flowers and leaves.  There are many different watercolor paints and sets out there.  For some reason, I keep going back to my Koi set.  I must like those colors.  For the greeting, I embossed with white on black paper.  Another TIP: look at your word stamps and think of different ways to use them.  I like to do this trick because you can change the format of the word stamp so that it will work on your card layout better.  For example, single line word stamps could be changed to two lines.

Creating watercolor washes for backgrounds is an easy and super fast way to create a card with dimension.  I've always loved using some type of background when stamping your featured stamps on a card.  This watercolor trend is our new background stamp!  The fun thing is that you can create any pattern you want and each background is unique.  I've never met a stripe that I didn't like!  This paper is from the My Mind's Eye "On Trends 2" 6x6 paper pack.  I'll have a few more samples later in the week using this paper pack!  Hope you enjoy this new Waffle Flower stamp set as much as we do.  Stop by the store to see many more of their sets and dies!
