Sequin Shaker Blog Hop

By Suzanne

_DSC0007Hi there! Waffle Flower Crafts is sponsoring the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh this week on April 26th at 6am PST (until April 28th at 11:55pm PST), and today I am sharing a card made with the Notions stamp set, Bowtiful stamp set and Bowtiful die set. You’re all invited to link up your own sequin shaker cards on the hop day to join in on the fun.

To make my shaker card, I used Pretty Pink Posh’s sequins in Pink Blush and Sand. If you need any sequins (or more sequins), you can use coupon code BLOGHOP to save 15% on your order at Pretty Pink Posh from now through the hop day.

Simple Shapes Easter Card

By Suzanne

_DSC0010

Last night I played with my Simple Shapes stamp set from Altenew, making an Easter bunny out of the components in the set and inspired by lots of tangrams on Google. I stamped each part of the bunny in a different color and added the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Many Thanks stamp set in black. It turns out that I don’t have many non-script “Happy Easter” stamps in my stash, so “My heart is full” seemed fitting for this card after adding the glitter heart diecut.

For those celebrating, I hope you have a Happy Easter!

Lil’ Inker Designs April Release Day 3

By Suzanne

_DSC0009Happy Friday! Today’s the last day of this month’s Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop! If you’re hopping with us us, then you should have arrived from Sarah Jay’s blog, but you can always head on over to the store blog to start from the beginning.

Today I am sharing a mini card using the Quilted Stitched Pattern die and the You’re My Favorite stamp set. I used the die to impress the quilt pattern on the card, but I masked off a 1-inch portion of the paper in the area where I wanted to heat emboss the sentiment. The whole panel was scored in the center so that this card is half the size of a regularly-sized card…I then added the flower from the Frames & Flowers die set.

Good luck to everyone who has been hopping – I hope one of you is lucky and wins one of the gift certificates! Until then, I can redirect you to the the store blog… I am the last stop on this blog hop. Thanks!! Have a great Easter weekend!
