Clique Spring Cards

Hello Clique friends!

Marcia back today to show you some of the things I have created with the awesome Clique Kits Spring Card kit. This kit features the oh so popular My Mind’s Eye On Trend 2, an adorable Waffle Flower Crafts bow die, and a fabulous Honey Bee Stamp Set that is only available now in our Spring Card Kit! Take a look …


I have to tell you those flamingos and pineapples are my favorites. They were the first things I used to adorn my cards…


My daughter’s Vet School white coat ceremony is Saturday!!! I made this card for her. The glassine bag will work perfect to stick a little gift card into. Just what my girl needs … a little $$ to make it through the next 52 weeks of her externships. Yup, I am one proud mama!

Check out this adorable bow! I love that Waffle Flower Crafts die!


My next cards make use of more of the dies in the ephemera die cuts pack. These dies make it so easy to put a card together fast! Can’t decide what paper to use … use 2 and cut them on a diagonal for a different look….





Yes, there was a fabulous Honey Bee Stamp set as well. I used it on this coffee cup I created from an SVGcuts Good Day at the Office digital cut file. It looks like the real deal, doesn’t it. I am going to fill it with chocolates for my office assistant who is retiring. It would make a great teacher gift too. I stamped the sentiment here with VersaMark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.


The butterfly was stamped on vellum and then embossed with a white embossing powder before I fussy cut it out.


If you like what you are seeing, then you better hurry and snatch up your Spring Card kit in the Clique store before they are gone!

Thanks for stopping by!

So let’s get to my project for today!  I had so much fun with the Waffle Flower Crafts Doily Circle Die!
 This die was so easy to work with and cut so beautifully!  I love the clean look of a die cut!  All the little pieces of this die were easily removed in no time at all!  Here is a look at the layout I created using the Doily Circle Die.

First I added some ink splatters with three different Heidi Swapp mists.  I also die cut the doily three times with three different papers from the kit and added them across my layout.  My photo went in the center with a couple layers behind it and popped up with some foam tape for dimension.  I love working from my Clique Kit because everything  coordinates and saves me time when creating!  We are still working our way down our wait list so please check your emails if you have been waiting to subscribe!  We do have some amazing June add-ons in the shop right now so make sure to check that out after the hop!

January Designer in the Spotlight – Nina Yang

Hey Clique fans!  We hope you have been enjoying the January 2015 kit Tailor Made featuring Amy Tangerine’s Stitched collection.  This month we included a super adorable heart die in the kit from Waffle Flower Crafts and also have a stamp set and star die as a January Add-on.  We are so in love with Waffle Flower Crafts we just had to have them as our January Designer in the Spotlight!


Nina Yang is the beautiful face behind  Waffle Flower Crafts and today she is sharing a little bit about her creative process, her everyday, and her company with us all today!


Q.  Can you tell us a little bit about your creative process?
A.   I usually start a project by trying something new… It can be a new product, a new technique , a new type of crafts, or a new color combination. Sometimes I will have something very specific in mind but most of the times, I just play and see what I will get.
Q.  Where and when are you most creative?
A.   Alone at home in my little craft cave – a small closet attached to my office.
Q.  What are some of your must have supplies?
A.   A scoring board, a bone folder, scissors, stamps and inks!
Q.  Who are some of your influences?
A.  As for product designing, inspiration from my other hobbies, my everyday life and my past experience defines my design. I try not to take inspiration from other stamp designers. It is hard to tell whether you were inspired or you copied a design. I’m actually trying to avoid “trends” unless we are one of the first or we can make it different and unique.
Q.  3 things people probably do not know about you.
A. – I wasn’t big on pink until I started making cards. Now I cannot put my hot pink inkpad down!
– I am stuck at Candy Crush Level 254 for 2 months now. When can I get a free pass again?
– Neither my husband nor I cook, so all you can find in our fridge are diet coke, yogurt, milk, orange juice and baby carrots.
Book:  I like reading technical manuals… Does it count?
Movie:  Léon: The Professional by Luc Besson
Candy:  Dark Chocolate
Drink:  Diet Coke
Music:  Alternative (I don’t know what it means, it is what my iTunes says)
Color:  Emerald Green, Hot Pink and Sunshine Yellow
TV Show:  Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)
Q.   How long have you been designing stamp sets and dies and what inspired you to get started?
A.  I’ve been playing with computer drawing programs for 15 years. I cannot draw by hand but I can make the lines work on a computer 🙂 I made a few box templates to share on my blog when I first started blogging. The templates got popular and it encouraged me to learn more. I was first offered the opportunity to design stamps and dies back in spring, 2013 after joining a manufacture design team.
Q.  Where did the name of your company Waffle Flower Crafts come from?
A. It was more than a decade ago, I took an Adobe Illustrator class at school. I combined a few tricks I learned and ended up with something similar to what we have in our logo now while attempting to draw a sunflower. LOL
Q.  We love your product packaging.  Can you share how you came up with the color and design of your packaging?
A.  Oh, the packaging?! Thank you for the compliment! I started by trying to follow what some of my favorite stamp companies were doing but I couldn’t find a supplier that carries the same clear bag… I had to choose a different bag size which led me to try to be totally different from all the others. It was a risky choice but I got nothing to lose. I’m glad that you like it! I think the packaging says something about me and why I am doing this. I just want it to be “fun” and “happy”.
Nina, Thank you so much for taking the time to share a little bit about yourself with our fans!  We are so excited to include your products in this months kit and we hope you enjoy the projects our team has created using your products!
We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about the face behind Waffle Flower Crafts.  Head on over to their website, Facebook Page and remember to follow them on Instagram!
Thanks so much for stopping today!  We have a great week of posts and sneaks for you this week so stay tuned to the blog and Facebook!
