Leane Creatief Butterfly Doodle Tag

Hi Stamp Lovers! Karen Bearse here today with a fun butterfly doodle tag. I am not a big doodle person but I love the concept & it is one of the areas I want to work on. 

This beautiful butterfly stamp was what I got to play with. I really followed the example on the stamp package & love the results I got. It was nice & easy but makes for a wonderful focal point on the tag. 

You can hop on over to my blog for more instructions on the products I used to get the super vibrant color on my butterfly. Thanks for stopping bye on the Topflight Blog today! See you next week.

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 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
Happy Stamp

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.
