Rubber Dance SOAR Door Hanger

Welcome to the Topflight Stamps Blog!

Today, I made a Mixed Media altered wooden door hanger using a couple of delicious Rubber Dance stamps.

The wooden base was  first covered with white gesso and then stencilled texture image were added with a stencil and heat embossed with a mix of embossing powders. Some of the powders were with a bit of glitter.
 The whole piece was then misted with a mix of mists.
Then The Studio Light background was stamped over the textured base to add some interest.
The die cut and the chipboard wing were arranged with a few flowers as the main image base.

The main image was stamped with black pigmented ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then colored with Distress Oxide inks and glued on the top.

The Rubber Dance sentiment was stamped as one single stamp and then hand cut to strips and glued in a kind of art journal over the finished piece.

And here is another view of the project from the side:

Here are the stamps from Topflight Stamps shop used to make this project:

Let's Play with Stamps!

Hello, happy Thursday from Topflight Stamps! 

It's Day 12 the last day of our 12 Days of Christmas Deals. Today's sale is 25% off all Christmas Wreath Stamps!!

Karen Bearse here, I love, love stamps & had fun working from multiple sets this week. I made an inky page in my ARTifacts Book Collaboration.

Creating lots of color was easy using Distress Crayons & lots of background stamping. Most of the stamping was done with Archival Inks. These inks tend to create a crisp, bright image especially on an already painted background.

I decided to continue on from last week, with the same stamp Set 4 from PaperArtsy by designer Seth Apter. These letters make for great background stamps. 

I wanted to add some circles to the background as well, so the Doodle set by Zorotte was a good choice.

Next, I also added the star from the Wood Chip set, with the corresponding star stamp.

Finally, the page needed a little something else, so I chose to ink & color one of the newer stamp sets from Carabelle Studio- Steampunk the Butterfly Effect.

Here is a close-up of 2 of my elements. The Star was painted & embossed, the moth inked & colored with Distress Crayons & ink. Thanks for joining me today. If you want to see more of this project check it out on my blog. See you next week!

Paperartsy Joy!

Welcome to the Topflight Stamps Blog

It's Day 9 of our 12 Days of Christmas Deals. Today all CHRISTMAS TREE stamps are on sale 25% off!!!

 It's Clare with you today and I'm working with this fabulous stamp set from Paperartsy. 

I have only used a section of this stamp today but I have used the smaller stamps stamps to build up my background.

The stamp set is designed by Tracy Scott ETS10 is bursting with versatility!  I have a little something up my sleeve that I will share with you soon.

I painted my tag with some black gesso and built up the layers,  starting with white first as a couple of the colours are translucent/semi-opaque. Paperartsy Fresco Acrylic paints

I stamped over the top of my tag using Versa magic chalk inks and added in some of my own doodles.  Using a small brayer I edged the tag with black acrylic.  On a piece of gelli printed card I stamped the large star and cut out to place on my tag.

Thank you for stopping by today remember to pop back every day to see what the rest of our creative team have been busy making.

Happy Crafting,

Explore Beauty ATCs with PaperArtsy

Hello my dear crafty friends!Welcome to my new Topflight Stamps shop blog post.
We invite you to our daily sales that we have in Topflight Stamps shop for 12 days before Christmas.
Today's sale is 25% off all Christmas Sentiment Stamps!!

Irit is here today and I am going to share a set of 4 Mixed Media ATC cards made with the most gorgeous PaperArtsy stamp set- Eclectica Sara Naumann 21 set.
 I know that we are close to all winter Holidays , but as I live in a very hot country and we still wear our short sleeves here I decided to make this bright and bold ATC set . I did it mostly because of the stamps I have for this week, not because of my Spring mood.

 First each ATC card was stamped with one of 4 stamps from the set using permanent black ink.
Then I made the background using some stencils (one is a honeycomb as we have a bee as one of 4 stamps here). Stencils were used with texture paste and when dry I painted all over with acrylic paints from Prima.
Then each image was stamped again over black cardstock using clear embossing ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Then each stamped image was hand cut partially and glued over the original background stamped image.
The words on the stamps made this " Explore Beauty" saying as it should be for any ATC set.
Here are the single ATC cards for you to see with more details.
As you can see the embossing powder was not the fine kind, but pretty much grainy, but as we are talking Mixed Media art pieces it looks just fine.

 And this is the stamp set I used to make this project:

I hope that you liked my ATC set and love PaperArtsy stamps as much as I do.
You can  buy this set and much more in the Topflight Stamps shop.
