Easy Watercolor Technique: Waffle Flower December Release

Welcome to Waffle Flower’s Slimlines & Alphabets Release day! This month, Waffle Flower is looking towards the new year with 4 stamp sets, 4 dies, 2 alpha die sets, and 4 stencils! All of the products from this month’s release are already waiting for you on the website here, and are linked down below at the end of the post!

For the floral lovers out there, Waffle Flower has the beautiful set Tender Blooms and coordinating sentiment set Tender Thoughts. These sets are just what you need to create cards of comfort, sympathy, and care. (We all could use more of that, wouldn’t you agree?) For stamps, there’s also the New Beginning stamp and stencil that can be used independently or together to make cards for the new year and fresh beginnings!

This month, Waffle Flower’s release also includes everybody’s new obsession, slimline dies! There’s the Slim Lacy Layers, Slimline Window Trio, Slimline Stripes, and the Slimline Angled Panel. If you’re a fan of the slimline card, you’ll have lots to choose from!

If you’re looking to up your sentiment game, Waffle Flower is rolling out two new alpha die sets and a fun stamp/die set of sentiment add-ons! The Bold Alpha Die set is a classic block alpha set and includes a full set of letters and numbers! The second alpha die set, the Wide Alpha Die set, has a different profile (wider and shorter) that is ideal for stacking and for larger slimline cards. To pair with the new alpha dies, there’s the fun Sentiment Additions Stamp Set. This set has words and phrases that can be used with letter dies, word dies, and other sentiments. Great for bringing new life to dies and stamps you already have!

Last but not least, Waffle Flower has added the Stripe Plaids Trio, Buffalo Plaid Stencil, and Infinite Triangles Stencil to their growing stencil collection. Each of the stencils in the Stripe Plaids Trio and Buffalo Plaid Stencil sets can be used alone or together to create a variety of striped and plaid patterns in your choice of colors. The best part is that these plaid stencils measure 6”X9” and can be used on A2, A7, and slimline cards! If you’re a fan of repeating pattern stencils (like last month’s Rings Builder and Infinite Petals), the Infinite Triangles Stencil can also make multiple patterns just by rotating the stencil or flipping it over.

To see all these new goodies in action, hop along with us! Everyone’s got some fun and creative ideas to share and get your imagination flowing!

My Projects:

When I saw the Tender Blooms Stamp Set, I knew that it needed to be watercolored. I often don’t want to watercolor complicated images, so I used a technique that allows you to watercolor an image without any real skill involved. Watch the video below to see how I made these two cards!
