Morning crafty friends, it's Julianne here showing two cards featuring one of my favorite stamp sets from Waffle Flower Crafts. I absolutely love Waffle Flower, they can be a little more pricer than others; so make sure you are checking the Drive By Crafts store for deals and coupons. I got this stamp set during one of their amazing sales. Getting back to my card, for this week I knew I wanted to make an anniversary card, so the Waffle Flower Stamps: Bouquet Builder 1 Stamp Set was perfect to accomplish that.
I started out by stamping all the flowers and leaves that I wanted to use to accomplish both cards using my MISTI. I stamped probably way more than I needed, but now I have plenty ready to go if I want to recreate this card or use them for a separate project. Once I had everything stamped out I then started coloring, I definitely used a range of colors for these two cards.
I wanted to do a different style in my coloring for this week, I know like others I get stuck in my way and continue to do what is comfortable for me when it comes to my coloring and the style of my cards but this week I wanted to break out of the box; I hope you all like it.
Once all my coloring was complete, it was time to start assembling my cards. I did this by layering all my flowers to see what looked best, once I had it the way I wanted it I took a picture of it so that once I applied adhesive I could put it back together. Next I started working on my sentiment, the sentiments I decided to go with come from another Waffle Flower Crafts stamp set, Waffle Flower Crafts: Always Stamp Set. For one card I just did the sentiment on the outside of the card but for the other, I stamped "Wish I could, be there for you" on the outside and inside. Finally I finished off the cards using a shimmer pen to add glitter to the flowers as well as some sequins.
Hope you all enjoyed my cards this week, I can't wait to see what you all create. Happy Crafting!
