Waffle Flower Crafts Rock My World and a giveaway!













{Reported by Ashley Harris}






Sweet Nina Yang from Waffle Flower sent me the Rock My World stamp set to review.



Now we all know that I am a stamp snob.  It's a fact and I am not ashamed of it.  So let's get started.


Ease of Use:  Obviously these are clear stamps and so they are super easy to use.  You know exactly where the image and or sentiment is going on your project.

Quality: Now here is where I get picky in the stamp category.  These stamps are of great quality and should last you a very long time if taken care of properly.

Usefulness:  Now keep in mind this is my opinion and completely subjective to that.   I really didn't see much use to this stamp set.   I mean it is cute and all, but I can't see using this over and over again.  Once or twice maybe.  Still cute though.


Cost effectiveness:  At the price point of  $15.99, it's about par for comparable stamps from other manufacturers.   



What I liked: 
- I liked the quality of the stamps.  They stamped a good clear image.
- They are a fun quirky set.

What I disliked: 
-The theme of the stamp is just not that versatile.


What I made:

With this card I put down some Angel Pink ink by Memento down first so it would show through the rock stamp to give it that chalk look.



For this card I did a lot of 2nd generation stamping to give it the grainy, mineral look to the rocks.


Supplies:  Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White; Ink: Memento, Distress Ink;   Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye;  Clear Stamps: Waffle Flower Crafts


Where and How MuchProduct Name: Rock My World stamp set

I honestly hadn't heard of Waffle Flowers before but the whole concept of a stamp set related to rocks makes me chuckle- cute and unique.

I don't know how many times I would use it either but it sure is cute with the rocks. I like what you did with it.

I do see how the themes are quite specific. You used themw ell.

I also like the idea of this theme for teenaged boys. And I'd certainly use the 'create' 'hello' and flower stamps. But you are right about it not being so versatile. I like the uneven circular shapes tho. They don't have to be rocks and large solid stamps can be used for many techniques. So I think it's all in how you look at it. Rebeccacell@gmail.com

First I've heard of Waffle Stamps, but that's why I come here..so find out the scoop!! Love your "rockin" cards...(pun intended) - The manly set is really cute and perfect for Dad's day cards (which I'm working on now!!)

I don't know how often I would use this set, but might like to use it for cards for my niece. She likes to paint on rocks, so a card with that theme would be perfect for her. I like the sentiments that go with this set. I'm not usually into the sketchy look, but I like these.
