Waffle Flower’s October New Release! Give Thanks!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Waffle Flower October Release Blog Hop! I’m happy to be hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower to show you all the fun new stuff awaiting you on the Waffle Flower website! Check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies!

Let’s get started on today’s card!

I ran a panel of white cardstock through my die machine with the Pop-Up Leaves Panel Die, then I pulled out the coordinating Fall Leaves Background stencil and colored my leaves in. I didn’t worry too much about technique or varying the shading, keeping them simply colored.

I used a powder tool on the panel to make sure everything was dry, and then I used the stencil again to apply sticky ink and clear embossing powder over the leaves. Then I was able to choose a couple of shades of blue to ink blend an Autumn sky without changing the color of the leaves. I cut that panel down to 4 X 5 1/4 in. and backed it with a mirrored copper-colored specialty paper.

I adhered it, off-set, to an A2-sized panel with some fun foam for dimension. Then, I spent some time carefully going along my panel of leaves and curving/bending the leaves (be gentle to avoid creases in the clear embossing layer) so the mirror panel underneath would show through. I used foam tape to stick down the pre-printed subsentiment to the – Thanks, Die. I added a bow from the Layered Ornament die set, and my card was done!

Thanks so much for coming by!
