Wow, February flew by so quickly! It’s time for the Waffle Flower March 2019 release and there’s so much to share. And as always, we celebrate release day with a blog hop filled with tons of inspiration and giveaways!
I have so many projects to share with you today cause I couldn’t stop! Let’s start with my favorite one featuring the new Bouquet Builder 3. This stunning 5×7 set by Karla Jodoin is absolutely gorgeous! The full bouquet is a bit larger than an A2 size card, so its beauty fills up the entire area.
I stamped it in a black hybrid ink and colored it with copic markers and colored pencils. Then, I used the matching dies to die cut it out. The dies even cut in the spaces in between the flowers! Next, I heat embossed the words on black card stock, and again used the matching dies to die cut the words out.
I created a deep purple ombre background to coordinate with my bouquet. I grounded the bottom by adding some striped pattern paper across, then added the bouquet with foam tape. The sentiment was added last to the very front.
The illustrator Karla Jodoin is unique in that her images stand out beautifully as black and white, as you can see through her Instagram feed @lovekdesigns. So, I decided to create a quick card in that black and white style.
I stamped the image in black onto white card stock. Then, with the matching dies, I die cut a window with the dies such that the image looks sunken in. On this black panel, I also added some white paint splatter.
I kept the simplicity and heat embossed the words ‘happy birthday’ in gold right onto the floral image. Then added my black panel over foam tape for the last step.
Prefer to just stamp and not color? Then the new XOXO set might be right up your alley! The solid individual images of this set allow you to build your own floral arrangement. I used my Altenew inks here to stamp the various flowers and foliage from the set and did some ombre inking to get the gradients in the stamped images. Then, each image was die cut with the matching dies.
My background was ink blended from right to left, then I overlaid the die cut pattern using the Tile Panel Die on white card stock. On the horizonal strip, I heat embossed the sentiment ‘XOXO’ in silver then arranged my flowers around it with foam tape. I added some Nuvo drops as a final embellishment to the floral centers and surrounding area.
Aren’t these new floral sets beautiful? The Waffle Flower March 2019 release includes 5 new stamp sets and 7 dies, which means there’s more projects I’d like to share with you later featuring the dapper Be Him set from Big Bear & Bird and gorgeous Lilac Dreams from Oana Befort. How about some sneak peeks below?

STUNNING BACKGROUNDS and your flower are amazing! Great designs!
These cards are gorgeous and I love the variety of ways/levels of difficulty you showed!
Your first two cards are stunning. That set looks great with and without color. Thanks for sharing. And the last are so darned pretty, love the texture and florals.
Beautiful cards! I especially love the last one with the Tile Panel cover die. The colors are gorgeous and I love the way you partially inked the background with the blue ink- such an interesting effect.
Keeway, your colouring of the Bouquet Builder 3 is beautiful, but I have to say I am “Wowed” by the one you did in black & white, especially with the extra step of sinking the image into the cut out. Stunning! I love the third card as well as the colours are so soft & feminine & that Tile Pattern Die is fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing your talent.
Really fantastic designs! Love the boldness of your choices and the XOXO card is so good!
Beautiful cards. I love the colors and oh the awesome stamps and dies.
Gorgeous card!!! Love the new bouquet by WF 🙂
So many sweet ideas. Thanks for sharing with us on this blog hop!!
All 3 cards are beautiful Keeway. I never would have thought to do the Bouquet Builder 3 in black & white but it is stunning!! Karla Jodoin did a exceptional job creating the stamp and die on this one, such detail to every aspect (I especially love the size 5 x 7 is my fav to make) no matter what medium is used or what colors every card on this hop has been stunning. Thank you for sharing all 3 of your cards and for the always awesome inspiration! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All three of your cards are fabulous! My favorite is the floral XOXO card. I do prefer stamping to coloring, so maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to this stamp set. The colors you used for the flowers plus that awesome tile panel die makes this such a beautiful card!
All three cards are really beautiful, Keeway, but the first one is simply breathtaking! You coloured these florals so beautifully, and that purple ombre background is simply perfection! STUNNING!
I love your cards, especially the first one. Your coloring is so rich and beautiful. TFS!
Wow!! Gorgeous cards!! I’m so much in love with the first one! Fantastic ombre background with beautiful flowers and design!! <3

Beautiful cards. Love the depth of color you achieved with the first card. The other card is just as striking as the first. Thanks for sharing your art.🐧
Wow! Gorgeous cards! I especially love the first two floral cards – so pretty!
You have a real knack for dramatic backgrounds. The purple combo is gorgeous, and the black behind the monochrome flowers is so striking. I’m also a really big fan of the blue fading to white with florals from the XOXO set. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful ideas with us!
Your cards are beautiful. I like how you made one is black and white.
Your bouquet cards are just gorgeous! I love the background color on the first one and the one in b&w is stunning! All the other cards are beautiful too! Thanks for all the inspiration!
