Fun Tags

Hello Topflight Fan! It's Ericka here with some fun tags by Studio Light Art by Marlene.

I love these tags, they are huge so you have tons of space to create. They also come in five fun colors. For the tag above I used the white one with my gel press.

Here is a look at these awesome tags.

I also used several Visible Image Stamps that can be found here.

I made a second tag to see what the paints would look like on  a black tag. I love the results.

I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. If you want details on how I created these tags feel free to stop by my blog, Strangely Creative.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Hi, Everyone! Toni here with a bonus card for you this week because why not? :)

I had a blast making this non-traditional holiday card using Katzelkraft Sherlock Holmes. Creating the spooky/not spooky atmosphere as well as the coloring were such fun.  I can totally be like this, especially now that it's winter and dark practically 24-7.  There'd be a cat perched on my shoulder, however!

Tag! You're it!

Hi, Everyone!  Toni here with you today sharing a tag I made using the Studio Light Art by Marlene Large Colorful Tags.  I'm going to hang this on a neighbor's door (hopefully it will stop raining!).

I've never worked with these tags before so it took a bit of experimenting to see what mediums I liked using to color the PaperArtsy JOFY 57 image.  The clear winners were Derwent Inktense Pencils. I tried Prismacolor Colored Pencils which worked really well with the texture of the tag but I'm an impatient gal so the Inktense worked better for me.  I had no problems adding a touch of water to bring out the color even more. And what a dream for blending too.

I finished the tag off by embossing one of the Katzelkraft Holiday Quotes sentiments in a bright red. I also added white pigment pen designs to some of the ornaments and spattered it with snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you'd like to see a full list of the ingredients and my other works, please visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft.  See you next week!

Studio Light Art by Marlene - GIant Christmas Tag

Hi everyone and welcome to the Topflight Stamps blog! It's Jenny here, and today I'm featuring this giant Christmas tag I created using the Studio Light Art by Marlene Large Colorful Art Tags.

I normally create cards but the season of gift giving is upon us, and my three year old daughter has a couple of very large gifts this year, so I decided to create this tag with her in mind - lots of pink and sparkle!

I used the white tag from the set and painted it with a variety of PaperArtsy chalk acrylic paints, top to bottom: Sugar Plum, Bubble Gum, Bougainvillea, Wisteria, Smurf, and Mermaid, mixing them with a little water, and then slightly overlapping each of the colors.

I dried it with a heat tool, and then used Snowflake acrylic paint to add a few white spatters, and dried it again.  I trimmed a piece of the ribbon that came with the tags and soaked it in a mix of water and Bubble Gum acrylic paint, and then dried it.

I then stamped the Ultimate Crafts Fractal Snowflakes over the top in Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed with Rita Barakat Kiss of the Fairy embossing powder.  I stamped it again just over the top of the tag.

To finish, I added some silver sparkle die cut letters and scattered some snowflake sequins and pink gems to co-ordinate!

I love how this turned out, these tags are awesome for those big gifts (or art of course!)

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Poinsettias

Hey Topflight fans! Ericka here and I hope you are having a great Friday. I'm here with two Christmas cards using a set from Crafty Individuals Festively Ornamental stamp set because you can never have too many Christmas cards.

Here is my first one I made using Distress Oxides.

 I used Sharpie markers to add a little more color to these gorgeous poinsettias.

I love the details this set has and the versatility for a variety of Christmas cards.

Here is my second card I made using the same set but watercolor markers and gold embossing for the flowers.

To find out more details on how I created these cards, feel free to pop on over to my blog Strangely Creative.

Have you finished your Christmas cards yet or are you like me, still working on a long list? Whichever the case, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get a chance to have some fun!

Big Winter Hugs

Hi there, Topflighters!  It's Toni again with a monochrome winter holiday card using Crafty Individuals Christmas Sledding Fun Bear.

Are you one of those people like me who have great expectations of sending out holiday cards on time for Christmas but then forget some people?  That's why I like to make a few winter cards so when someone gets a card in January or February it's not a lame super-late Christmas card. LOL.

For this card, I masked off the pine and holly border to de-Christmas the design. I also used a generic sentiment from the Katzelkraft Carpe Diem set.

For a full list of ingredients and to see more of my creations, please check out my blog, Frankie Helps Craft.

Joyful Cards with Crafty Individuals

Good morning, Lisa Hoel here with a card to share with you. We are focusing on Crafty Individuals stamps this week and they have so many lovely ones! I used the Christmas Angel of Love stamp to make this pretty card.

It pairs well with the various festive die cuts I added and will hopefully bring joy to the recipient. ;-)
