There is Always Room for Flowers

 Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today.
For today's post I picked this wonderful stamp  (Grunge Flowers - set 3) designed by Melina Dahl for That's Crafty. 

I made the background with my gel plate. I stamped the flower and colored it with water brush pens. I trimmed the background paper, stamped the sentiment. 

 This was super easy! I love the gel plate - you can create lots of backgrounds in little time. It's a lot of fun and you always have some backgrounds available when you need them.

I hope you liked this! See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Hi, Foxy

Hello, Topflight fans! Toni here.  Today I'm sharing a one layer card using the Aall and Create Foxy Friends set.  

Aren't those foxes adorable? And so perfect for the season.

I started the card by sponging the Visible Image The Forest stencil with Prism Ink Blue Lagoon, Canary Yellow and Cinnamon Swirl.

I've already used this stencil numerous times since getting it recently.  It's such an easy way to create a scene and mood with just a bit of color.

Lastly I colored up the images using Prism Markers Forest Walk and Prism Markers Heavenly Sunset. I did add some changing leaf dots to the tree using Copics.  So cute!

I'll be back with you next week. Until then, why don't you check out the new products that have come into the TFS shop!  You can shop your heart out using this 12% off coupon

Cat Bat Witchy Halloween Card

 It's Tuesday, which means it's Kathi here to share a card created for Topflight Stamps! Since it's now officially fall, it's time to turn (almost) my full attention to things Halloween. 

I decided to create a little scene with the Bat Cat Witch, aka Zinski Mini Zini 07 Rubber Cling Stamp by PaperArtsy, who is doing some research in her personal Halloween library, which was created with the Book Spines Frame Stamp Red Rubber Cling Stamp by Darkroom Door, two skull bookends from the Mr. Bone Jangles Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Visible Image, and wallpaper made with the Forest Leaf Stencil by Stamperia

Here it is! BTW, she's a grey cat in real life. 

The Bat Cat Witch, aka Zinski Mini Zini 07 Rubber Cling Stamp, was stamped onto white cardstock, fussy-cut, colored with Copic markers, and edged with a black marker. I took her photo before I set her aside to work on her library.

Here she is all colored and fussy-cut.

The next step was to stamp the Book Spines Frame Stamp and the two skulls from the Mr. Bone Jangles Clear Polymer Stamp Set onto white cardstock. I'll mention that I used a Stamping Platform because I wanted the bottoms of the images to align. 

Since I knew that I'd want to add a background to  the image, I also stamped book spines and the skull onto repositionable label paper, which I use as masking paper after fussy-cutting it.

I colored the book spines, the skulls, and the "shelf" with Copics, masked them, then sponged Milled Lavender Distress ink over the images to color the background. The same Distress ink was sponged over the Forest Leaf Stencil onto the image panel.

All the masks were lifted and a whole batch of rub-ons were used to add titles to the book spines. I'll admit I had a lot of fun with that, so much so that I took a photo to share with you.

Here it is:

I edged the image panel with Black Soot Distress ink, then matted the image panel with black cardstock, and mounted the shebang onto a purple 8.5" x 4" card. I added the Bat Cat Witch to finish the card.

Tracy Scott Floral Feather Stamp Mixed Media Tag

Happy Monday stampers!  It's Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint with you today to share a couple of mixed media projects based around the new PaperArtsy mixed media feather stamp set by Tracy Scott, ETS43.  This stamp is wildly popular, so if you find it is unavailable on the Topflight Stamps website, make sure to sign up to be notified when it comes in.  

I had an idea of a cascading tag book with the feather as the bottom, leading up to one of Tracy's butterfly stamp.  I chose ETS22 and used the flowers from the set to fill in my middle layers.  I stamped each design on a sheet of gel printed paper (I used my 8x10" plate for these prints).   I taped a tag die in place and cut to the point of each stamp design where I thought it would cascade nicely.  I used leftovers to stamp portions of the images to pop out.  I will share a flip through video on my Instagram (@sewpaperpaint).  I used some of Tracy's mini stamps to add more pattern to the tops of each tag.

This is the card I made for you the week before last, but didn't get a chance to post it here to the TFS blog because we were on a last minute vacation.  I used the same stamp set by Tracy, this time using both feathers, layered for a boho look.

I know we all face the problem when playing with our prints that some portions of our prints are just better than others.  Here you can see how I took a variety of pieces and layered them together to make my card background.  The end result is filled with texture!  So save those scraps and do piecework when you can.  Thanks so much for joining me today.  Have a creative week!  Hugs, Autumn

Halloween with Lavinia Stamps

  Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today! 
This week we are featuring Halloween cards. Just my thing!


I first stamped the moon in silver and heat embossed it. Probably was not the right way to start, but I got around that mistake. I masked it. I sponged my background. I then stamped all the animals and trees. The dragon I stamped with Staz-On ink, because of the heat embossing. Added white gel pen accents and water/bleach splatters. 

It's Halloweenish enough, right?
I hope you liked this! See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.
