Waffle Flower Sneak Peek – Kit #04

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to be participating in another Waffle Flower Link Party!  This month’s party – and my card today – feature products from Sneak Peek Club #04!  

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 by April 30th, 2023.  The GIVEAWAY* is Kit #04 – 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 shaker card featuring several items from the new kit, including the balloon and string dies and the sentiment strip. I love interactive cards with lots of bling and, they are so perfect for a birthday!

To make this card:

1.	Ink blend a panel using a confetti or dotted stencil.
2.	Die cut the balloons and dotted strings from the stenciled panel.
3.	Ink-blend your card front with colors that coordinate with your confetti.  You can use 
        the die cut panel to gauge your color placement for the balloons or do what I did and 
        just pick a gradient of colors.
4.	Create the shaker by adding acetate behind the balloon cut outs and create “wells” 
        for your shaker material with foam adhesive.
5.	Add your shaker material and assemble the shaker card front.
6.	Die cut the “hey” die from white cardstock and it’s shadow from vellum.  Assemble 
        them with liquid glue.
7.	Cut out your sentiment strip from the sentiments included in the kit.
8.	Use a Minc machine or laminator and transfer foil to foil the sentiment.  I used rose 
        gold foil to coordinate with the colors on my card.
9.	Adhere the “hey” to your card front with liquid glue and add the foiled sentiment with 
        foam adhesive.
10.	Add a few gems for even more sparkle!

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!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

  1. What a fun shaker card. I tend to shy away from them but you make it sound so simple. I really like the subtle, dotted strings to the balloons.

  2. Love the confetti panel, love that it’s a shaker, love the foiling, love the big HEY and its shadow, and love the color choices…. a superb card! Excited to see the new WF items!

  3. I love this card! Thank you for the directions on how to make it!! My parents both turn 80 this year in August and I would love to use these balloons on their cards!

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.
