Minis and Mattints with PaperArtsy

 

Hello friends! Ericka from Strangely Creative here. I've been away for a couple weeks due to severe Texas weather but am so happy to be back. Today I am playing with some PaperArtsy minis and Mattints for a colorful tag.

I started out by stamping the PaperArtsy JOFY Mini 73 in Versafine Clair Twilight and clear embossed it. I then took the PaperArtsy Mattints in Dragonfly, The Pink, and Jam. I also added a little PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Gold. I then stamped the Ink & the Dog Mini 124 and stamped it in gray ink and then used the same Mattints to color up the rest of my tag.

I stamped the the JOFY 112 flower and colored it up with the same Mattints and some PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Pistachio. I added some gold pen to highlight portions of my tag.

 

I finished my tag with some washi tape words from the AALL & Create Night Shade. Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the sale going on now!

Paperartsy Minis

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. This week we are featuring Paperartsy Minis. This includes stamps and stencils. There are some super cool stamps in that collection!
used a background form my stash, which I made with a gel plate. I stamped onto scrap paper and colored everything with alcohol ink markers. I cut everything out and added it tomy background. The sentiment is from a Katzelkarft set. Just doodled a fram around it. Lastly I added some balck ink directly to the edges of my card base.
I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

PaperArtsy Minis with Topflight Stamps – ATCs

Hello, Lisa Hoel here! This week on the Topflight Stamps blog, we are focusing on PaperArtsy mini stamps and stencils. They are perfect for projects both large and small! I created a series of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) to showcase them. (So much fun to make!)

ATCs are great for using up bits and pieces of backgrounds and die cuts that you may have laying about. The small size of the PaperArtsy minis are perfect too!

I used scraps of Gel Press prints, inky backgrounds and other papers for the ATC bases. I added die cuts made using the AALL & Create SkyCrossed Paradise Die Set. It has lots of fun detail dies in it.

Happy Bird Day!

Greetings! It's Tuesday which means you've got Kathi here to share a project with you. This week the TFS team is showcasing PaperArtsy's wonderful mini stamps and mini stencils. They might be small, but they pack a big punch! I have quite a nice collection of these little treasures so I had a hard time deciding what to use. In the end, I decided to make a birthday card as those are always useful.



Using a stamping platform and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko, I stamped the Royal Bird (Kate Crane Mini Cling Stamp KCM004) twice — once onto the image panel and once onto repositionable sticker paper, which was fussy-cut and placed over its counterpart on the image panel. 

The cupcake (Zinski Mini Rubber Clling Mounted Stamp Zini25) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink slightly to the right of the royal bird so that the top layer would be close to his beak. Again, it was stamped again on repositionable sticker paper, which was fussy-cut and placed over its counterpart on the image panel. 

The chef bird (Zinski Mini Rubber Cling Stamp Zini27) was positioned a little off kilter so that his toque would be behind the cupcake. And don'tcha know that the cupcake was also stamped a second time onto repositionable sticker paper, fussy-cut, and used to mask the chef on the image panel. 

A ruler was placed horizontally over the base of the image panel. Pink Copic-friendly ink was sponged over the ruler and the masked images to color the background. 

Starting on the left side of the image panel, Copic-friendly inks were sponged over the shaped apertures of the Hot Picks Mini Stencil PM021 and over the masked images. I continued this until I had a nice rainbow of cool shapes on the background.

The ruler was moved to cover and protect the top part of the image panel. Grey Copic-friendly ink was sponged over the bottom of the stencil and the bases of the masked images to ground them. 

The ruler and masks were removed and the images were colored with Copic markers, then highlighted with a white gel pen.

Blue Belle VersaFine Clair Ink by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko was used to stamp the sentiment on the top left. 

The image panel was adhered onto a grey A2 card to finish up the project.

2 Floral Birthday Cards

 Hi friends. Alanna here with a pair of birthday cards today in my signature clean and simple style. For these cards, I started by taking the Flower Smudge Flower Smudge set from AALL & Create and stamped it directly onto white card panels that measure 4x5.25 inches. 

If you want to see other posts of mine using the Flower Smudge set, click here and here.

I stamped the images using the Mermaid Elements ink from Lavinia. These inks are an absolute dream to stamp with and to blend with.

After my focal images were stamped, I stamped my sentiments which are all from the Best Birthday Ever Best Birthday Ever set from Visible Image. I love the sentiments in this set, especially the one that says bestie. I stamped them with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink. After these were stamped, I allowed them to dry so as to not smudge the ink. I then took two pieces of black card stock that measure 4x5.25 inches and I adhered them more to the left of some teal A2 sized note cards. 

I then added my stamped panels. Because they are the same size as the black panels, they are offset a bit which I thought was a fun look. I finished off the cards with some white pearls from my stash.

Hobby Art - Hogs and Kisses

 Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. This week we are featuring Hobby Art here on the Topflight blog. It's a wonderful British stamp company. You may want to check them out!
I started out stamping the tree first. Once the ink had dried I stamped the hedgehog and masked him. I colored him with alcohol ink markers. I brushed the background with distress inks. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Fun with Fungi – Hobby Art Mushroom Card

Hello, Lisa Hoel here! This week our brand focus over at Topflight Stamps is Hobby Art. I love this set called Fungi and I wanted a chance to play with the new Lavinia Dinkles Ink Powder to create some backgrounds.


After creating several Dinkles backgrounds and picking one to use, I stamped the mushrooms with permanent black ink and then watercolored over the top. I'll have to experiment more with ink powder; it's lots of fun to play with!
