I was so excited when I got my prize from Waffle Flower blog hop giveaway on last Friday! I won the new set, Surface – Tag Stamp Set and I couldn’t resist not to order the coordinating dies, Surface – Tag Die Starter Kit. And also I got the Bowtiful Die Set but cannot get the Bowtiful Stamp set because it was out of stock but now it is in-stock!
Here’s my first card I made using my first Waffle Flower products:
For the sentiment, I die cut a piece of Lagoon cardstock with the tag die and stamped it with the White Daisy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.
And the flower I made out of the small bows. I die cut Honey cardstock using the Bowtiful Die set and then just stacked 2 bows together using mini glue dots and added a button brad. Quick and easy, yet beautiful flower 🙂
I felt like something still missing on my card… So I added the Durable Triangle Studs. Yup! That’s it 🙂
The inside I stamped the Happy Birthday with Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. And for those stars, I stamped with Lagoon, Goldrush and Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads.
I made this card for a dear friend’s birthday 🙂 Hope you like my card today and thanks for visiting 🙂

I know some friends who celebrate their anniversaries in this month, at least 4 in 2 weeks! Apparently June is a favorite month people to get married… including us! LOL!
Celebrating their anniversaries, I made some cards for them… today I would love to share 2 of the cards I made with one design from The Cutting Edge Challenge, a new challenge blog, the challenge is to create new cards using any die cutting machine. The first challenge is to create using any of these inspirations:
Here’s are my cards inspired by bottom left card:
The first card, I used the die cut flower petals and leaves on embossed background card. The die cut flowers and leaves are gifts from my card swap friend a few months ago. And the background card I embossed using CTMH Damask Embossing Folder with WRMK Evolution Advanced machine. I added some gems on the flowers and added them on the card using 3D foam tape.
The second card has the same embossed background card like the first one. I used Teal Shimmer Trim for the strips. The roses I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. To put them together, I used craft glue pen. I added some glitter on it. A bit more blings won’t hurt, right? I added the flower on the card with 3D foam tape.
The sentiment I used is from The Happy Couple stamp set (D1539) that I stamped it using Black Exclusive Inks stamp pad.
And they will be on their way tomorrow morning! I hope they’ll like them, and you too! 🙂 THANKS for visiting today!
I enter this card for The Cutting Edge Challenge – Launch Party & Guest Designer Contest

We had a wonderful long Memorial Day. My husband cook out tasty food for 3 days! He is the best cook ever 😀 We also went driving on our Jeep at State Park close to us and love the wonderful days we had. Just love warmer days!!
I have been playing a lot with my new embossing machine. Last weekend, I gathered all the courage I had to stretch the use of embossing folders with stamping. So… here’s what I did: stamped and embossed 3D paper flower. Check out these 2 embossed paper flowers I used them on 2 shaker cards I made for my friends:
I used this simple shaker card tutorial to make this cards. The sentiments I used are from The Happy Couple stamp set and Joyful Birthday stamp set. I stamped them with Black Pigment Ink Pad. First card, I stamped the anniversary sentiment on a piece of velum, added some glitter embossing powder, and heated it with my craft heater. The second card, I stamped the birthday sentiment on the base card, centered the position that would show in the frame. I got the metallic multicolor sequins and beads at Walmart only 🙂
I love those flowers on the cards, and I thought they would make my scrapbook layouts pretty, too… so I made more of them with different colors and pattern. And I took some pictures how to make them:
- First stamp the petals from Hello Bloom stamp set on a piece of White Daisy Cardstock. I used Sorbet, Juniper and Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads.
- Run it through embossing machine. For these flowers, I used Chevron Embossing Folder and WRMK Evolution Advance machine.
- Then cut them and curl each petal gently using Quilling tool.
- Use Liquid Glass to put them together. You only need a small dot in the middle of each petal.
- Made a little bow with Baker’s Twine Neutral Metallic, Cashmere. And add it in the middle of the flower using Liquid Glass.
- Then add button (or gems) to finis the flower.
I hope you enjoy today’s cards and tutorial! Don’t forget you still have 5 more days to get the sweet deal of Scrapbooking Month and my 1st Anniversary Party with Close To My Heart.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fun crafting day!
