Waffle Flower Challenge June 8th - 21st

A very quick post before I jump into my nice warm bed (my electric blanket is waiting for me!!!). Its very cold here today and have been trying to get warm all day.

I just love the inspiration photos for the Waffle Flower Challenges and now I finally have more of their stamps and dies, I can get a bit more creative with my entries.

Like everyone else at the moment, I love the ombre look. I'm not always the best with my blending but I'm gradually getting better (thank goodness for Distress Inks!). I had a bit of a crazy idea on how to use ombre with my new Waffle Flower die:

As you can imagine, I spent quite a while die-cutting white CS with my Doily Square Die. I blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry to create the ombre look on my card front and then adhered the circle frames, cutting off any overhanging edges. I then stamped and heat embossed in gold the 'yippee' from Waffle Flower 'Congrats', fussy cut them out and popped them up on foam tape. I absolutely love how it turned out and I'm always happy to find new ways to use a die.

I'm also going to link this to the Virginia's View Challenge # 15 where their theme is:

I actually enjoyed making this card so much, I made another one which I will post tomorrow. Its kind of the opposite of this one, if that makes sense. All will be revealed...... Right, I'm off to enjoy my electric blanket.

Take care
