So i have a pile of cards that i still need to share! These are cards i just make for fun, no DT or challenge in mind. They tend to not get on the blog soon after being made because i want to get DT cards or challenge cards up! So today i sharing 2 cards i made way back when!

For both of these cards i used goodies from Waffle Flower, a new stamp company! Nina has several stamp sets and dies!! These two cards features Bowtiful Stamp and Die Set,  the Mailable 3D Bow die and the Tiny Heart die.

For the first one, i pulled out a card base who's background was already made. I had at some point used a stencil, embossing paste and embossing powder to make the background, but it work for the project i was making at the time. But i brought it out for this card. I also found a die cut oval, made from a random cereal box. On the natural side (not the printed side) i stamped the stamp clusters with grey ink.

Next i die cut a bow from some striped pattern paper and then stamped the matching bow with mind ink. I also die cut the tiny heart out of a cereal box and added it to my bow center.

All that's left was to was stamp the sentiment Hello. Adhere my oval to the card base and then add the bow with foam dots!

For my second card i used some pattern paper, one with a white background and another with a black background (same actual pattern, just different colored backgrounds). I covered my card base with the white background paper and die cut the 3D bow from the black background.

I also die cut a piece of watercolor paper with notebook paper edge, i stamped the sentiment on this piece in black ink. I added it to my card base with foam tape and added the bow below it (assembling the bow is super easy!!!) Last i added pearls at either side of the bow!!

  1. These are both gorgeous! I love that patterned paper - and that sparkly background rocks! Glad to know I'm not the only one who ends up with a backlog of cards to blog since they're not on a deadline, lol :)

  2. A delightful duo here, Dana! The stenciling on the first, paired with the oval hello and wee bow (love the cut-out heart!) makes for a super sweet card. And the second...the sentiment says it all. This is a stylin' card! Fabulous!

  3. These are great! I love the background on the first one and LOVE the papers on the second!
