Learn How to Make an Embossed Background with Mboss

Today’s I used a beautiful Floral stamp set by Waffle Flower and few Mboss Embossing Powders in purple and magenta hues. I stamped the Floral image on a vellum piece with VersaFine black onyx ink and added Clear Mboss Powder. This gives a beautiful glossy effect on the image. For the background, I dabbed the VersaMark pad directly onto the card stock and created an ombre effect with the Mboss Embossing Powders. I repeated this process twice to get a rich shimmery effect. To finish the card I adhered the floral image and a “hello” sentiment.

Live Colorfully with Waffle Flower Stamps

by Jowilna Nolte

Live Colorfully with Waffle Flower Stamps

I have always loved Waffle Flower Crafts stamps, and how cute is this little set for creating fun cards. Here I used shades of purple with a touch of pink to create a fun card, showcasing both stamps and dies and how you can use all your inks to create the look so easily.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Use the direct to paper technique with Memento Luxe in Sweet Plum and Memento ink in Grape Jelly to add color to smooth white cardstock.


Step 2

Use water misting bottle and mist the background to create a fun splattered effect. Leave to dry.


Step 3

Ink a piece of white cardstock using Memento ink in Lilac Posies (magenta).


Step 4

Use your Waffle Flower die-cut heart and cut several hearts from the colored cardstock piece.


Step 5

Stamp the images onto cream cardstock and add color using your ink pads. I lifted color with my water brush and painted the images in different shades of purple and pink. Cut out the images.


Step 6

Tear your colored cardstock piece with the water splattered background and adhere to your card front. Adhere the cutout images and die cut hearts. Stamp a sentiment and raise it on top of the torn piece of paper.


Step 7

Add some irRESISTible onto a plastic packet. Dip a burnishing tool into it and create small colored dots onto the background of your card to mimic bubbles. Leave to dry and finish off your card with colored splats and diamanté. A fun colorful card for someone young at heart.

Create a Paint Brush Splatter Style Card with Waffle Flower Stamps

by Roni Johnson

September brings a wonderful pairing of Waffle Flower stamp and all of the amazing products from Imagine. Today I wanted to share a card I made using Waffle Flower’s set Little Painter. I just love the variety of brushes and the cute little tubes of paint. They are so much fun to color and the uses are endless.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 45 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Cut a piece of white cardstock 4” x 5.25”. Flick a variety of colors of All-Purpose Ink onto the card panel using a paintbrush. Rotate the card panel with every application of ink so the splatters come from different directions for a more natural look. Set the panel aside to dry.


Step 2

Stamp the paintbrushes onto a piece of white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Ink; stamp 3 tubes of paint onto a separate piece of white cardstock using the same ink. Sprinkle Black Mboss embossing powder over all of the images; shake off excess powder and return it to the pouch. Melt the embossing powder with a heat tool and let the embossed images cool.


Step 3

Watercolor each image using the same colors of All-Purpose Ink that was used to create the background. Fussy cut each image and set it aside. Stamp the easel image onto a scrap of brown cardstock and fussy cut.


Step 4

Mount the background splatter panel onto a red card blank; arrange and adhere the images as desired. Cover the paint blob with a layer of Sparkle irRESISTible Pico Embellisher to add shine and a touch of sparkle.

Create Soft Stamped Background with Secondary Stamping Technique

by Lori Warren

There is something so beautiful about a soft, watercolor background. Especially when paired with a bold stamped sentiment in black, it really creates a striking contrast. The Secondary stamping technique also used on this card was the perfect way to enhance the watercolor background with muted florals.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions

Directions


Step 1

Apply Memento ink in Sweet Plum and Elderberry directly to the craft mat, spray with water and then place cardstock panel directly into the wet ink.


Step 2

Repeat step one with additional Memento ink colors. Here I used Memento in London Fog which is a nice gray.


Step 3

Stamp flowers onto cardstock panel (ink up stamp, stamp off ink using scrap paper, then stamp onto cardstock panel). The second generation stamping is what is left on the stamp when you stamp off the card. When you use this, it gives the stamp a ghost-like look.


Step 4

Stamp the sentiments, “you’re amazing” and “it’s your day!” along with the calendar images with Memento in Tuxedo Black.


Step 5

Stamp small circle stamp around the “day” of the birthday. With this design, the circle is on the 7th.


Step 6

Edge panel with Memento in London Fog.


Step 7

Tie sheer ribbon between sentiment and calendar images.


Step 8

Adhere the card and ribbon to the card base with Tear It Tape.


Step 9

Stamp birthday month “October” and the word “birthday” to the right of calendar image, vertically.


Step 10

Embellish with adhesive gems.

See How to Make a Colorful Card with a Cut-Out Background

See How to Make a Colorful Card with a Cut-Out Background

I am really in love with the cut-out and embossing technique used to make the background of this colorful and high contrast card. It was fun to use the negative of the flower shape to create this greeting card background and have the bright green, magenta and purple colors show through a black, shiny frame. The stylish Waffle Flower stamps are a perfect compliment with the fun Memento ink colors! I hope this card inspires some creative card making ideas.
