Intense Ink Blending – 2 Cards Out of 1 Background
Happy Thursday, all! Today I have two cards for you featuring new stamps and dies from Waffle Flower’s Spring 2018 release. In fact, this post is a blog hop celebrating the release. :) Their latest release has a TON of amazing new things to play with! You can see the entire new release in the Waffle Flower shop HERE, or at Simon Says Stamp HERE.
Before I get into the cards, we need to talk about those Cloud Storage Pockets (both in the XL size and M size). They are so amazing! Not only are they nice and thick to protect your stamps and dies, but there is a divider that separates the dies from the stamps. When you buy a stamp set with the matching dies from Waffle Flower, they come packaged in the new colorful storage pockets, too! You can also buy the pockets separately (click on the images to go to the Waffle Flower online store)…
And now onto the cards!
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
I started with the idea of creating an intense blended background using Distress Inks (I used Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Salty Ocean). I wanted to turn it into a shaker card by die cutting a circle, which then left me with the die cut circle itself. It was perfect for creating a second card!
I used two stamp sets for the cards: Grow Happiness and Hello. I also used the matching Grow Happiness dies and Hello dies.
Be sure to watch the video above to see how both of these cards were created.
