(Bowtiful Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Crafts)

FYI, Waffle Flower Crafts is a brand new stamp company that the very talented Nina Yang has created. She has designed the most amazing stamps and dies for her very first release, and I couldn’t be more excited about the new release… just sayin’ 🙂 You can all check out the fabulous April Release HERE. She has been doing giveaways through the whole week, so don’t forget to stop by Waffle Flower Crafts blog.


To share the excitement with you all, I made this card using new Bowtiful Stamp Set, inspired by a bow skirt. I created my own pattern using tiny heart stamp from the set. Then I used my all time favorite technique, heat embossing, to add a slightly dimensional, raised effect to the pattern. It looks really cool and elegant in real life.

“YOU’RE SO BOWTIFUL!” Oh my, that sentiment is truly sweet and clever! It could be used on every card for any occasion, except sympathy card. By the way, I almost put some gemstone or glitter onto the bow, but I’m glad I didn’t. What do you think? Hope you love my card! 🙂


Here is how I created my card. 1)Draw some guidelines using pencil and ruler. 2)Stamp the heart images in grey on the card front. 3)Stamp the hearts again using versamark ink. 4)Pour clear embossing powder on the stamped images and heat set it. 4)Adhere some pattern paper and yellow cardstock, then add the sentiment in gray. 6)Die cut the bow and place it onto the card using dimensional adhesive.


These are the supplies I used to create my card: Cuttlebug die-cut machine was not pictured. All the cardsock I used for my card is from Papertrey Ink, except patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye. That’s it for today. Hope you visit the Waffle Flower Crafts blog to see more introductions, previews, and GIVEAWAYS!

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share the happy news with you. Have a super fabulous weekend!
