Waffle Flower Crafts Release April 2018!

It’s time for the new release at Waffle Flower Crafts!  To celebrate we are hopping along and you should have arrived here from Nichol’s amazing blog!

I have two cards to share today using the fabulous Sandy Toes stamp set and coordinating dies.  I wanted to have a ‘watercoloury’ look and used a combination of Distress Inks, Zigs and Inktense pencils, this gave me the colours and effects that I wanted.

I decided to add a simple sentiment from the new Rainbows Stamp set.

My second design uses the Sandy Toes stamp set again (can you tell I am loving this one!) and I wrote in the sand with a Rainbows sentiment stamped in Coffee Loves Milk Ink.

The rectangle border die comes from the Rainbow Panel Die set.  Love these new Combo packs, they are so clever and cute with the rainbow packaging!

  1. Therese fabulous cards, love these new stamps, so make me think of the beach with the kids. You have caught the scenes so perfectly.

  2. What wonderful images – Waffleflower have done it again – given us images that capture “fun on the beach”. I love your use of watercolours to add whimsy to the scenes.

  3. I really like the Sandy Toes stamp set and the cards you’ve made with it – so Aussie!

  4. The Sandy toes set is amazing love all the different ways to make a card and bouquet build is excellent also…… always gotta have flowers.

  5. I’ve been missing as of late, Therese, but wanted to make sure I stopped today and visited your blog. So happy I did! The boys on your card remind me so much of my oldest and youngest when they were little, and you’ve made me smile just thinking of those days gone by. The beach you’ve created for them is fantastic, and I do love those images!! The sweet little girl on that sand dune is beautifully framed. I think my cc might be in trouble, and I will be heading over to WF to see the full release in a second, lol! Gorgeous card, my friend. Love these!! : )

  6. Here, the snow is falling (still…) and the temperature is a ‘balmy’ minus 20C, so your beach cards are precisely what’s needed to brighten and warm my day! Fresh, fun, fabulous!

  7. I have never seen a design of yours that I didn’t like. You are truly talented. I also love to hear your talk. 🙂 Love the beach card.

  29. I am normally a critter lover rather than people characters on cards. But this stamp set is so fun, every card I have seen throughout this blog hop has been different (obviously) but the characters have told a different story even though they are the same characters. It is such a cool stamp set. Thank you for sharing your designs with us crafters. :O)

  34. The stamp set is so cute and your card shows what a really fun stamp set it must be. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card.

  35. I love that first card where it looks like the dad is racing off to the sea and the kid is like “Dad!! Why am I carrying the surfboard?? Wait for me!” Hilarious. Also, the backgrounds you made for these are a gorgeous use of watercolor. Thank you for sharing with us!

  36. These beach kids are just having too much fun, I love the motion and movement in these images! Wonderfully done!

  37. Great cards, Therese……love them! Great new Waffle Flower release, and it looks like ‘Sandy Toes’ is the favorite – it’s the thought of summer days coming soon! Thanks for the chance to win a giveaway…….
