arch window card waffle flower

Today we are celebrating the new release by Waffle Flower with a fun blog hop. Lots of inspiration along the way and many giveaways!

Amazing designers have joined in this blog hop and you want to check each and everyone of them! If you wan to start this blog hop from the beginning visit this Waffle Flower blog post.

For my card today I combined two of my favorite products from this release. The “Cold Hands” Stamp Set ( SSS | WFF ) and the ” A2 Arch window” die( WFF | SSS ).

The window die is so versatile and can be used all year round. Think of all the possibilities, you can look through the window on an outside scene like I did today or you can look into the house. You can also combine this window die with the “A2 Window Shutters” Die Set ( SSS ) for a completely different look! I will be using that in a future video for sure!

I stamped the little mouse and a couple of trees for my winter scene and colored them quickly with my alcohol markers. For the sky I inked up my background with Distress Oxides Ink – Peacock Feathers ( SBC | SSS | ELH ). And check out the sparkling snowbank. If you are going to get only one pot of fine glitter then get Sparkle Dust in Snow Glow( SBC | SSS ). By far the most versatile color and my favorite!

  9. Hi, Vicky, I love your job, it’s wonderful. I have to admit that I do not always watch your videos and it’s for a very important reason, hahaha.

    I always want to buy all the material you use to make your cards and, unfortunately, my financial situation does not allow me, so I keep them for when our economy improves.

    The topic of the blog hop I still do not understand, I would like to know if you have to make a purchase or you can participate without buying anything.

    God wants you to read my comment, by the way, I do with the Google translator, and you can answer me or someone who reads.

    Thank you very much for your effort, work and sharing so much of you.

    You are special, I have followed for some time and I have not deleted the subscription to your newsletter. And I have erased almost all, because they make me want to buy and I can not in any way.

    God keep you, bless and continue to use to encourage us with the beautiful and inspiring things that you do.
