Hello friends! I know a lot of you have been following the new stamp set release from Waffle Flower Crafts on Instagram and Facebook. But, I bet you did not know that this release includes a very special stamp set. It is call DT Mix because each member of the Waffle Flower design team was asked to contribute a little piece. How fun is that?
Like most sets, you will only get the full effect of each piece of the puzzle as you enjoy this blog hop! Do you see the cute little string art heart and sentiment near the top? That was the result of my brainstorming with Nina! Trust me, I am not artist and I did not draw this design, but I did have an idea and I created my own inspiration board. Want to see?
I often create boards like this to inspire my card making and designing. You can kind of follow along with my crazy thought pattern here: from lines that make constellations to geometric shapes to the art of string. And this is what a finished card looks like.
The actual stamp is pretty simple, an outline of a heart with the two letters “i” and “u”. But, after stamping the heart and piercing holes on each dot, I threaded a needle with upholstery thread (a little thicker than normal thread) and randomly stitched a pattern. I was inspired to go a little more rustic with this card, but I already have another in the works using bright embroidery floss and colored ink. Cannot wait to share it!
You definitely want to sit back and hop through all the posts below. You should maybe even start at Waffle Flower to learn more about the new release!
Waffle Flower Crafts is also providing a stamp set of choice as a prize for this hop! The random winner will be drawn from comments left on all of our blogs! Enter by 11:59 pm Eastern on Thursday, Jan 8. The winner will be announced on the Waffle Flower Blog on Jan 9.
Good luck and enjoy the hop!
