Doodling Trees

Welcome to the Topflights Stamp blog.   Steph here again showcasing another wonderful stamp set from the store and this set comes from the Netherlands. 

This week is all about doodling and I've use a fun stamp from Leane Creatief.   The doodling stamps I'm using is Trees.



I began by stamping one tree.  Then I used a masking technique to stamp a second tree.



Next, I used a water brush to color the trees in assorted colors of green ink.


One the ink dried, I used a green marker to add doodles on the tree.  Because the tree was divided into sections, it was easy to create different doodles.


I also added color to the tree trunks with brown ink.


I die cut the individual tree and added it to a card with a simple Hi. 


Then I fussy cut the 2 trees adding it to a panel of green and black before adding to the card.  Thanks was die cut and added to the card.

Thanks for stopping by and please pop by my blog for more crafty inspiration. 

See you next Tuesday.

Watch them bloom!

Hello all!  Clare here with you today at Topflight Stamps and I have been doing some simple Gelli printing.  I love experimenting and pulling prints from my printing plate.  for this project I chose to use some die cut circles and some beautiful colours from Paperartsy to do all the work.  I used Prawn, Butternut & Tangerine Twist from Tracy Scott's colours along with Carribean Sea.


The main Image on the card is from Carabelle Studios and the set is called 'Plant Loving Thoughts' , by Birget Koopsen, available at Topflight's online store.


Using Posca pens I added some splatters to the card along with some sequins for a subtle bling.


Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed your visit?  Remember there is something new on the blog everyday from our amazing creative team, subscribe and visit daily to see what they have been up to.

Creative Hugs,

Creative Expression HAPPY Stamp & Die Two Ways

Welcome to the Topflight Stamps Blog!

Today, I'm sharing two cards I made exactly the same way, I just used two totally different color schemes. The first is a more Summery color palette and the second on is more of a Fall/Winter color story. They are each made with the Sue Wilson HAPPY stamp and Happy Die set from Creative Expressions. These are so versatile and you can create so many sentiments with the die set. I colored them with Copic Markers.


Happy Die Set

Seth Apter PaperArtsy with Guest Designer Shilpa Nagaonkar

Welcome to the Topflight Stamps blog. 

Today we have a special Guest Designer - Shilpa Nagaonkar. Shilpa has created a gorgeous mixed media canvas using our PaperArtsy Seth Apter stamps and wood chips. 

Shilpa explains how she created this beautiful canvas. 

1. To make the textured background I used modeling paste, stencils, spray inks and acrylic paints. 
2. The focal point is a PaperArtsy Seth Apter stamp - ESA03
3. I stamped the images using black archival ink on PaperArtsy Seth Apter Wood Chips which match the stamp set. Then, I adhered them on the main surface. 

Be sure to join us again next Saturday for another stunning creation by Shilpa.

Jazz it up CAS Mixed Media card


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my mid August inspiration made for Topflight Stamps shop.
This is a week to show some of my personal style and as I have a lot of styles I picked a Clean and Simple for this showcase.
But even with  CAS style this card has some Mixed Media add-ons such as using a stencil with clear modelling paste around the heat embossed stamped image.


The stamps I used are from Visible Image UK company and I just adore their Mixed Media style of images.
This is a stamp set I used - Jazz it up set

Visible Image - Jazz It Up - Clear Polymer Stamp Set

 My background was made with Tando stencil and new Ranger Distress Oxide inks.
The stamping was made with Memento Luxe ink and heat embossed with clear powder.



Thanks for reading my weekly post.
If you would like to see more of my work you are mostly welcome to my own blog.

Shine Bright with IndigoBlu

Hi Inky Friends, welcome to the Topflight Stamps Blog. Karen Bearse here today with a stamped up journal page from My Favorite Memories Journal. 



My son was Harry for Halloween, oh my gosh, 14 years ago. The sneaky way I turned this page into a Halloween theme was to alter the photo. There is no Halloween paper or ephemera on it yet it is still full of spooky fun.


I used the Shine Bright set from IndigoBlu which I just love! The background stamps are great with subtle detail & don't you just love light bulbs!!! 


Another way to use this quote is on a journal card for your art journal, pocket pages or project life. Just the different background gives the quote a whole new look. For more info & close ups of this layout feel free to visit me here. Thanks for joining me today!

Happy New Year with Creative Expressions

Welcome to the Topflights Stamp blog.   Steph here again showcasing the Stitched Angel Ornaments Stamp set from Creative Expressions.  

The theme this week is anything goes and this set is so versatile! 



I've stamped the snowflakes in blue ink on a white panel, then combined them with the stars stamps for a fun New Year's Card.   After matting the panel with cardstock, I wrapped the panel with twine.

Happy New Year was stamped then die cut and die cut, then matted with a larger matt.  Since I had some room, I stamped 3 stars below.

Flowery Doodles

Good morning to you, it's Clare with you today and this week I have been using Paperarty stamps from Tracy Scott.  The flowers I have used are from set #6 and set #8.


On some craft card I stencilled and stamped using Distress oxides. The flowers are painted cardstock that have been stamped, fussy cut and layered onto the card.


It certainly is fun playing around and deciding which colour combinations you are going to choose for your blooms.



I really enjoy the bold, bright colours of the flowers against the organic backdrop of the craft card and Distress Oxides.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Remember to stop by everyday to see what the rest of the team have been up to.

Happy crafting,

Clare
