Guest Designer Cornelia with Dots to Diamonds

Hi Everybody, 

Cornelia here today with my fourth post as guest designer. I am again playing with this new product called Dots to Diamonds. It is a paper pack of 48 high quality cardstock cards with preprinted patterns, that you can adorn with gemstones or Stickles or whatever you have at hand. There are 6 different patterns in every pack. 



In addition, you can purchase those sparkly gems in every color you can imagine.

My supplies:


The rest is pretty easy. I masked the circle of my card and sponged around in rainbow colors. Added mostly gems to the dots, but also a bit of Stickles. And that was all. Can't be easier than that. LOVE all the sparkle!



I hope you liked this. 

I will be back next Thursday with my last inspiration!

Fairy Sparkles


Ooh, sparkles! Are you familiar with painting with diamonds? Well, Hunkydory had the brilliant idea of combining that with cardmaking.



I'm using a sheet from Hunkydory Dots to Diamonds Paper Pad 1 along with Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles Gemstones Precious Purples and Pretty Pinks.


I sponged a bit of Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on the bottom of the card front after placing the gems.


Adding one of the Lavinia Three Dancing Fairies was next.  I used Versafine Onyx Black.


Finally I added the Debbi Moore Designs Fairy Life Quotes 21, masking off the stars top and bottom. So sparkly!

Mix Media Monday with Hunkydory at Topflight Stamps

Happy Mix Media Monday, Karen Bearse here with a whimsical, fun art journal page. I have a full tutorial with step-out pics on my blog. This week the team are playing with Dots to Diamonds by HunkyDory. They have paper pads with images that have spots for you to put the bling- kinda like a paint by number, only you choose the color!


Here is my page, after adding my bling to the butterfly, I choose to make a watercolor painted background, with some stamping.

This is Paper Pad 1 which I choose a butterfly sheet out of. The pack comes with 12 designs- 4 sheets of each.There are fun dandelions, whimsical leaves, a celestial sky & lots more options.

This is how my project started out, to give you an idea of how the sheet looks. I simply stamped that cute owl from the PaperArtsy set- Zinski Art 41in an archival ink & created my page.



I used a watercolor set like this one by Art By Marlene- to make my background.

I used the Diamond Sparkle Precious Pearls in Vintage Brown for the wings & Brilliant Blue Gemstones for the body.  I have to say I had a lot of fun playing with the bling. It was very relaxing just adding the sparkles. I hope you have a chance to get blingy today!! Thanks for joining me.

That's Crafty Boho Flowers

Happy Friday Topflight fan! Ericka here with a pretty floral card. I love coloring flowers and this  Boho Vibes set from That's Crafty is great with both flowers and feathers.


For this card I used Copics to color in this beautiful bouquet and then re-stamped it in Versamark ink to heat emboss it with WOW Clear Sparkle. Take a look at the sparkle it adds to this beautiful image.


I can't wait to create something else with more of these images.

Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like more details on how I created my card, feel free to stop by my blog, Strangely Creative! Have a wonderful day.

Zini meets Dots to Diamonds by Guest Designer Cornelia

Hi Everybody, 

Cornelia here again. This is my third post as guest designer for Topflight Stamps. I discovered a new product and I am thrilled! It's called Dots to Diamonds. It is a paper pack of 48 high quality cardstock cards with preprinted patterns, that you can adorn with gemstones or Stickles or whatever you have at hand. There are 6 different patterns in every pack. 


My supplies:


I took the dandelion pattern and did an ombre sponge. I took the Zini and colored it (him? her?) with watercolors. Somebody commented and said it looks like a sweet potato - ha ha! I can see that! I cut it out with my Scan 'N Cut. Added it to the card and then added all those gemstones. To not to use too many of those precious little stones I also added some Stickles. 


I din't want to add a sentiment. I think this card is fine without one.

I hope you liked this. See you next Thursday!

I will be back next Thursday with more inspiration!

Weight You Are


Hello, Topflight fans! Toni here today with an ever so happy feel good card.

I really liked the placement of the Studio Light Art by Marlene Little Ladies image and the sentiment on the plastic sheeting so inked and stamped it directly from there.


I stamped the image again onto masking paper so I could mask the image and do "something."


That something turned out to be a bunch of spatters. I wanted the card to feel artsy and imperfect but beautiful, just like you and me! 


I used Prism Ink for the spatters.  I also used Prism Ink to color up the image. I stamped the ink onto an acrylic block and used a water brush to paint.
