TILT CARD

I know—Deja Vu, right?! This is the card I made from the adorable animals I watercolored in the blog/video hop post featuring with the Waffle Flower Water Media Mat, from last week.

If you’ve never made a TILT card before, they are quite easy and fun. I have a video below showing the mechanics—it’s a very simple mechanism and you can customize it to anything you want to make tilt back and forth.

I used Waffle Flower’s Be Her set, but there’s a Be-Him version that is pretty doggone cute, too . . . Just sayin’ . . . •wink•

Thanks for stopping in today!


WAFFLE FLOWER STAMPS WATER MEDIA MAT

The Water Media Mat by Waffle Flower Stamps was one of our Top Ten picks from Creativation 2019 and what a great tool!

I’m not gonna lie: One of the (aesthetic) things I absolutely love most about it? It’s WHITE!!! ALL WHITE!!! YASSSSSSSSS!!! •fist pump•

I’m video hopping with Nina and the Waffle Flower gang over on YouTube!

***Please watch the video there, because, hey, PRIZES!!!***

Full video hop list is available HERE on the Waffle Flower blog!

This thing has quickly become one of my favorite tools because watercolor is my favorite coloring medium and with this mat, you can use not only bonafide watercolors, but also water-based markers, water-based ink cubes, etc.

Keep in mind it is NOT A CUTTING MAT; no sharp stuff allowed, people! But, dang! I talk about all the other things you can do on this surface in the video—And, my apologies for the audio; the Mister decided to mow the lawn during the only time frame I had for voice-over and I don’t have a sound-proof audio booth . . . •sigh•

Those little she critters are so adorable and, no kidding, they’re the perfect size for watercoloring! And, gosh, so perfect for that tilt card, right?!

CUTENESS!!!

Have a super fab day!


FLORA & FAUNA CELEBRATE THEIR 2ND BIRTHDAY!

My sweet friends over at Flora & Fauna are turning 2 today and have a lovely sale going on! Be sure to use code birthday2 over on their site for 20% off!

I actually have an online class featuring some previously released Flora & Fauna stamps right HERE—if you enjoy their quirky and fun stamps/dies, this class is right up your alley!

I have a few creations to share, featuring dies from their most recent release.

Love having this sprig of flowers peek thru the card front like this . . .

This one features negative die cutting and lots of “sloppy” watercolor . . .

Love putting a high gloss finish on die cuts—reminds me of porcelain or ceramic! •all the heart eyes•
