Waffle Flower Crafts | September Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

September 5, 2023

Welcome to the Waffle Flower September Release Blog Hop! I’m happy to be hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower to show you all the fun new stuff awaiting you on the Waffle Flower website! Be sure to check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies! 

Next on the hop is Amy Rysavy

You can access the full hop list HERE on the Waffle Flower Crafts Blog.


My first card features the new Under the Tree Stamp Set plus coordinating die set. I created a fun 3D box card that fits perfectly into an A2 sized envelope when folded flat.

All of my images were stamped onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics. For my box card itself, check out the Outside the Box Die Set from MFT along with the Outside the Box Low Profile Add-On Die Set.

I absolutely LOVE how cute this set is! For the front of my card, I added a sentiment from the previously released Elegant Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set.

For my second project, I created 3 Christmas tree shaker gift tags using the new Christmas Tree Shaker Die Set. These are super simple to make and go perfectly on top of your Christmas gifts to really create that “WOW” factor.

I also used some Slim Shaker Cover – Christmas Tree covers to hold my shaker embellishments.

I love how elegant these shaker trees look on gifts. They can also be used as the card itself!

For my last project, I combined the gorgeous new Folk Art Frame Stencil, Folk Art Frame Matching Die, and Folk Art Bird Die. The Folk Art frame stencil and coordinating frame are absolutely gorgeous and create the most stunning and colorful frame for your cards. I blended mine with some green and red inks because I wanted mine to be Christmas-themed, but you can use whatever color you want at any time of the year.

For my bird and oval in the center of my card, I die cut pieces of card stock using the Fold Art Bird Die. Once I had assembled my bird, I added some white accents with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen (size 10).


For today’s hop, Waffle Flower is giving away $25 gift certificates at every stop of the hop, that’s a total of 3 chances to win! You can leave a comment on this blog and along the hop by 8:00a.m. EDT on Monday September 11th, 2023 for your chances to win. Winners will be chosen at random from the comments and will be announced on the Waffle Flower Blog on Winner Monday, 9/11/2023.


From now till September 9th, 2023, all orders placed at will receive an exclusive Little Stocking Die (No code required!).

For those of you who are new to Waffle Flower, they have a Last Chance section on their website that lists many goodies for 25% off until they are gone! This would be a great place to start your collection! And don’t forget to check out their monthly Flash Sales!
