Waffle Flower blog hop

Welcome to a fun blog hop! Today we celebrate the new Waffle Flower April release with lots of inspiration and giveaways.

You can start the blog hop from the beginning here. The release is packed with awesome designs and if you are looking for something unique and different they’ve got you covered! You can see a close-up video on the new products below

And here is my card!

You see his expression ? This is exactly how I feel just thinking that summer is not so far away any more. I used the SANDY TOES stamp set and colored him with my alcohol markers. I also used the matching dies to cut him out.

How fun and unique is this card?! Now can you see the sand? Looks like real and it’s easy to get this look by using the Embossing Kit – Beach ( SBC | SSS ). At the video below you can see how easy this technique is.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and to make it more interesting I stamps and embossed part of in directly on the card while the other part is in a strip of paper.

You can watch the video below or at my YouTube channel here

    Vicki, I have said it before and I will say it again, you do not disappoint with your excellent card making skills! I live in a desert on a Marine Corps base (it is already got here!) and I often feel like this as I am walking or running on the hot sand-wishing I was running on the beach! If they had a woman running in a swimsuit it would be a great compliment to the set. Love the sandy beach! Thank you!

    Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen the beach embossing kit, but that’s amazingly realistic! It works so perfectly with this set you would think they were made for each other. Thanks for sharing a bunch of new products with us and creating such a fun card. I think that’s my favorite part of this set; it just screams sheer delight, which is something we could all use.
