New Stamp Company: Waffle Flower

I love learning of new stamp companies. After all, it is a sign of the craft industry growing and thriving!

One of the newest companies is Waffle Flower from the talented Nina Yang. Waffle Flower has some playful and unique stamp sets and dies. You can find there products HERE on their website. (Be sure to check out their Mailable 3D Bow Die. So clever!)

I used the new Waffle Flower Bowtiful and Rock My World stamp sets to create some fun cards for my kids. I am a *big* advocate of giving kids surprise notes often to make them smile. Sometimes I leave them on their bed. Sometimes in a lunch box. (And often times in the mail to our oldest in college!) These new stamps are perfect for kiddo cards. Playful, simple and happy.

First up? For Audrey and Kay…

For a bit of dimension on the bows, I used a two-tone stamping technique. I first stamped them in WPlus9 Sweet Gelato (pink) and SSS Audrey Blue inks. I then inked the image again with a darker ink (Hero Arts Rasberry Jam and SSS Island Blue) but wiped the ink away from the outside edges of the bow and stamped right on top of the first images. This gives a darker shade at the bow‘s center. (You can see this technique in action in THIS video.) I also covered the bows with Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine.

I also created a couple cards for Audrey and Colin. I simply stamped the rocks with Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink and then did the two-tone stamping technique with the same ink to make it darker on the right side. I gave my rocks the look of texture by taking my Copic Colorless Blender pen and adding dots and lines. (The Colorless Blender pen “moves” the Hero Arts Shadow Inks and changes it slightly. So very cool.) I then added a small die cut heart and covered it with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

Do you make cards for your kids or little friends? They are always my favorite to make for three big reasons: I can keep them quick and simple… I can make mini cards… and the kids always appreciate them.

See you soon!

    I never think to give my kids cards and notes…. what a great idea. And keeping it simple is great for beginners and busy alike. Thanks Jennifer

  9. Judy

    Fun cards!! I always enjoyed making cards for my daughter ( and still do)! She has saved all the lunch notes and other cards that I made her and at age 20, still treasures them.

  10. Your cards are cute and so sweet. I make cards for my grandson all the time. I also make them for my grandniece. They live across the country from me, and the cards help us connect.

  11. Your cards look great Jennifer! I enjoy sending our kids cards every week at college! Our daughter has mentioned she LOOKS FOR THEM and I’m sure our son does the same! I have to keep my cards simple too to get them out in the mail! LOL :)

  12. Lucy Schmidt

    My 6-year niece loves to get cards in the mail. When she visits we make cards for her to send to grandparents, Mommy & Daddy and friends. E-mails and e-cards are nice in a pinch, but getting something made JUST for YOU is special and the practice of sending them is something we should foster. I’m sure your kids love getting your notes, card & mail.

  19. My Project Life materials have doubled as lunch box love note supplies. The 3×4 cards are the perfect size and so easy to whip something up even at the very last minute as I usually do :-)

  22. Eve

    Very cute bow cards. I have a baby girl card to make. Guess what will be on it?

  23. Sheryl M.

    Thanks Jennifer, what cute little cards. I didn’t know how to stamp, make cards or scrapbook when my boys were young but we did write notes back-and-forth to one another and I still have the ones they wrote to me, what a treasure they are even to this day (as not to give my age away, LOL, we will just say 20+ years ago). And two of my granddaughters love to write notes back and forth to me now and they love to put stickers and stamp on their notes as well, trying to teach them to be creative at a young age. :-) Hope you have a very blessed craftin’ day!
