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!

designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
