Good morning! I’m so excited to be a stop on the hop for the fantastic October release from Waffle Flower! Here’s a quick look at all the fabulous products they’re releasing this month! From winter to Christmas, florals to international travel…they’ve got it all! They’ve also divided the release into three bundles that will save you 10%!
I’ll be sharing lots more soon but today I’ve got a sparkly autumn shaker using the adorable Happy Fall and Fall Greetings sets from Cassie Loizeaux!
You guys…that mouse! I adore him!! I kinda feel like he’s my spirit animal! Ha! So to start I stamped him, his mug, and the banner onto white cardstock with no-line ink using my MISTI. Then I colored them with polychromos colored pencils! I kept the shading simple because I knew there’d be a lot going on with the other elements of the card! Once I was finished coloring I placed the panel back inside my MISTI, re-stamped the images with versamark and heat-embossed them with gold tinsel embossing powder before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies!
Next I die-cut a panel of white cardstock with the Stitched Layers dies. I blended distress oxide inks in Wild Honey, Candied Apple, and Gathered Twigs onto the smaller panel. I splattered that panel with water and added a few heat-embossed leaves from Happy Fall! Then I lined the two panels up on another A2 panel and used the outer panel as a guide for adhering my inner panel to the A2 panel. Next I applied acetate behind the outer panel and added a double layer of foam mounting tape. I filled the shaker with a mixture of seed beads, sequins, and confetti in autumnal colors with pops of metallic gold! Then I placed the A2 panel over the acetate panel and sealed the shaker! Finally I just added my banner, mouse, and his mug to finish the card!!
And that’s it! I hope my card inspired you today and I’d love to know your favorite products from the October release!! 😉
