Waffle Flower Sneak Peek – Kit #03

Link Party & A Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to be participating in the Waffle Flower Link Party!  This month’s party – and my card today – feature products from Sneak Peek Club #03!  

In case you hadn’t heard, the Sneak Peek Club provides Club Members with a super fun monthly kit of Waffle Flower products.  Members get the products about a month earlier than they are released to everyone else!  So, if you’re interested in being a Club Member, you can sign up here:  Club  

To make the party even more fun, Waffle Flower is generously providing a GIVEAWAY* to one of my blog readers (that would be YOU) if you comment on this blog post before the deadline (3/30/2023).  The GIVEAWAY* is Kit #03 – the same kit I used to make my card for today!  Winners are picked at random and will be announced on Waffle Flower’s Link Party post*the GIVEAWAY can only be shipped to the US.

My card for the party is a slimline card featuring soft rainbow butterflies.  I created this card using only two of the items that came in the kit: the stencil and the sentiment stamp set. The kit has dies and shaker pouches and more sentiments, too!  And while I didn’t use them on this card, you should stay tuned to my blog because I’ve already made other cards using this kit and I’ll be sharing them in the upcoming weeks.

I used tone-on-tone ink-blending to create the soft butterfly background on this card and realized when I was done that the sentiment “dreams do come true” from the included sentiment stamp set seemed to fit the dreamy soft feel of the card perfectly.

To make this card:

1.	Ink-blend a panel using soft pastel rainbow colors (the inks I used are listed in the 
        supplies below).
2.	Ink-blend again – this time using the butterfly stencil – with the same colors but 
        putting a bit of extra ink on your blending brushes so that they butterfly is a shade or 
        two darker.  
3.	Die cut your panel using a scalloped edge die.  I used a slimline die but cut off the top 
        and bottom scallops to make a long thing panel that went from top to bottom of the 
        card front.
4.	Heat emboss your sentiment on your panel using permanent black ink and clear 
        embossing powder.  Be sure to treat the panel with antistatic powder so you don’t get 
        stray specks of embossing powder where you don’t want it.
5.	Tie some twine around the top of the panel and make a bow.
6.	Add foam adhesive to the back of your panel and adhere it to a slimline card front.  
7.	Add a few pastel confetti gems for some shine!

I hope you like this card and that it inspires you to create something today!  I can’t wait to see what you make with this kit (and any of the others)!

For even more inspiration, be sure to head over to the Link Party and check out what other designers have made using this kit.  Pssst: you’ll have more chances to win the GIVEAWAY if you visit and comment on their blogs too!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
