Jane's Doodles ~ New Adventures by Charmaine Canham

 Happy Sunday

This is my second card using the same stamp set, Jane's Doodles Happy Camper, that I used on Wednesday this week. I used an easy repeat stamping with masking technique to make this cozy forest. 

New adventure by Charmaine Canham for TopFlight Stamps

Start by stamping 4 trees and the tent on masking paper. Fussy cut these. Plan your card before you put ink to paper. Make sure you want the trees in the front, in the front. 

I then added the tent in the middle. I wanted the tent to be in-between the trees. So I stamped the tree first, then added a tree mask. Then I stamped the tent and masked the tent. 

Now for color!!  I gave all the trees an overall YG Copic color. Added darker greens to the shadows and under the branches. 

Now for my magic trick!! Use a white gel pen and a black fine marker to highlight the edges of the branches and darker the outlines of the trees and tent. I also added the ground and sky colors. 

I added a whimsical border
  and stamped the sentiment with Verafine.

I hope you liked this card and will give masking a try!!!

Penguin Birthday Card!

Greetings! It's Tuesday so you've got Kathi here to share a project with you. This week my teammates and I are showcasing Jane's Doodles Clear Stamps, which are absolutely wonderful.

I love penguins, so I was delighted to find that there were two sets in the range. I decided to use the absolutely adorable Sweater Weather Clear Stamp Set to create a shaker card.

Here it is!

To create a scene with the penguins holding hands while skating, I stamped the middle penguin onto a white cardstock panel and onto repositionable label paper, which was fussy-cut, then placed over him. The penguins on the right and left were stamped onto the image panel and onto repositionable label paper, which was fussy-cut and used to mask them.

I cut a wavy border onto copy paper, then brushed Periwinkle Prism Ink by Hunkydory Crafts overtop.

A grey Copic marker was used to trace the outside of an elongated oval die to create the skating rink.

The masks were lifted and retained for later use and the images were colored with Copic markers. Grey Copic markers were used to add detail and dimension to the snow and ice, then Frost Shimmer dauber was applied to the ice rink using a paint brush. More glittery accents were added with a clear glitter pen, then the image panel was set aside.

VersaMark ink was used to stamp the Snowflakes Background Stamp by Darkroom Door onto blue cardstock, then white and sparkly white embossing powder was heat set. 

The snowflake background panel was trimmed, die-cut, then the aperture and the panel's edges were sponged with VersaMark, then the same embossing powder was heat set.

The Frost Shimmer Dauber was applied to a white cardstock banner and heat set. The sentiment was stamped using Paradise VersaFine Clair Ink by Tsukineko, heat set, and adhered to the image panel with dimensional foam in the center, and glue at the ends.

Acetate was adhered to the back of the background panel to cover the aperture. 3D Adhesive Foam Roll by Hunkydory Crafts was applied to the perimeter of the window to create a well for the shaker contents, which were added.

The image panel was adhered to the background panel to seal the aperture, then added to an A6 card.

Happy Camper with Jane's Doodles

Hello everyone! This is Rachel from rwkrafts and I'm excited to be kicking off our Jane's Doodles week at Topflight Stamps! As a child my family took many trips to the beautiful national parks in our country. We would always camp, never stay at a hotel. So stamp sets like "Happy Camper" from Jane's Doodles always speak to my inner child.

To create this card I first stamped the little stars on my cardstock panel and heat embossed them white. Then I inked the sky to look like a dark night in the wilderness.

 The images were all colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. I popped the camper up with foam adhesive to help it stand out. Lastly, the darling sentiment and arrows were stamped to the bottom of the card.

Thanks for stopping in! Enjoy the rest of the creations this week featuring Jane's Doodles!

Two More Cards for the Polaroid Pops Challenges!

 I've been having so much fun participating in AALL and Create's Polaroid Pops Challenges that I just had to create two more cards for that I'm going to share with you. I wanted to let you know that Topflight Stamps is well stocked with AALL and Create's products, including Janet Klein's wonderful stamps, plus there are loads of new products. So hop on over to check out all the new goodies!

Here's my take on the Famous Face Challenge for Day 9, created with the Marilyn Clear Stamp Set 475

#PolaroidPopsChallengesDay9, Famous Faces

Here's my take on the What's Cooking? Challenge for Day 22. This one was created with Nana's Kitchen Clear Stamp Set 410 and the Sugar Cookie Clear Stamp Set 421All stamps are by AALL and Create.

#PolaroidPopsChallengesDay22, What's Cooking?

I made The Stand into a kissing booth with Marilyn as the star kisser. I bet she'd make a load of money! 

The Stand was stamped multiple times with Memento ink and fussy-cut several times, once to create the top part, once with the aperture cut out, and to cut out all the flags. Marilyn was stamped into the blank space in one of the layers, then colored with Copic markers. Blue glitter marker was used to accent her earrings because Marilyn loved to sparkle!

The flags were colored with Copic markers, then overstamped with the Reverse Stars Clear Stamp 484 using Tulip Red VersaFine Clair  Ink by Tsukineko. The same ink was used to add the 5¢ from The Stand and the sentiment from Love Birds Clear Stamp Set 155 the top panel of The Stand

The Stand/Kissing Booth was assembled and adhered to the center of a 3.5" x 4" white card.


I decided to go retro with my take on the What's Cooking Challenge. The cook pot and the percolator from the Nana's Kitchen Clear Stamp Set were stamped onto white cardstock and onto repositionable label paper, which was fussy-cut and placed over the pots on the stove. The stove from the Nana's Kitchen Clear Stamp Set was stamped onto the image panel and onto repositionable label paper, which was fussy-cut and used to mask the image. I placed a ruler horizontally over the images and brushed Jersey Cream Prism Ink by Hunkydory Crafts overtop to create a colored background. 

The ruler was moved to cover the top part of the image panel and tan Memento ink was brushed overtop to become the floor.

All masks were lifted and the stove, percolator, and pot were colored with Copic markers. The wood floor was colored with Copic markers as well.

The cute chef from the Sugar Cookie Clear Stamp Set was stamped, fussy-cut, colored with Copic markers, and edged with a dark marker.

The image panel, with the stove, was trimmed to 3" square and the chef from the Sugar Cookie Clear Stamp Set was adhered. The image panel was adhered to a 3.5" x 4" white card.

AALL & Create Tracy Evans Penguin Mixed Media Tag & Card


Happy winter friends!  It's Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint with you today to share some fun mixed media projects featuring the fun new penguin stamp set by Tracy Evans for AALL & Create (#604).  I couldn't wait to have a play with these stamps!  I ended up making a tag/card combo because I just couldn't stop with one project. 

I used texture paste through the Mosaic stencil (#54) onto watercolor paper and while the paste was wet sprinkled the top with Sleight Blue Infusions powder by PaperArtsy.  I sprayed and sprayed with water to let the color run through the texture pattern and then let it dry completely.  In the end I liked the darker portion at the bottom, so I cut up the 6x6 panel and mounted it onto a tag, making a mini tag from the cast off, on which I stamped the tiny text in the set, so cute! 

I used a very old Sizzix die to cut the snowflake from thin chipboard, then covered the entire piece with more texture paste for a snowy effect.  I added some silk ribbon and a mounted sentiment sticker to finish it off. 

Next, I played around with the paper I used to mop up the inks from the Infusions drips.  

I used the Brrr stamp to add subtle contrast in the background (Iced Spruce DOX) then used the extra paper to tear snowy hills.  I scraped texture paste on the tops and sprinkled with holographic embossing powder and heat set to add some shimmer.  I gave everything a splash of Bronze Glimmer Mist and added another sentiment.  This time I added a little watercolor detail to the penguins for a color pop.  I'd like thank my teammate Kathi for sharing this fabulous textured paper with me, which made the perfect mat for this colorway.  :)

I hope these projects have inspired you on this winter's day!  xx, Autumn

Kay Carley Journal Page


I hope you are all keeping warm this January and having a great new year. Ericka from Strangely Creative here and I'm trying to work more in my journal this year. I created a page using a background I had previously made using my gel press, PaperArtsy Fresco paints and the Carabelle Studios Rosette texture plate.


I then used the PaperArtsy Kay Carley PS061 stencil with black archival ink and a blending brush to lay down a black layer of ink. I then moved my stencil over and used texture paste with the WOW! Embossing Tracy Scott Golden Vintage Lace to give the image a shadow look. 

Once the texture paste was dry, I used my heat tool to melt the powder. I took my white gel pen and added some lines along the branches and finished my card with a sentiment from the PaperArtsy Alison Bomber 19.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend and have a chance to some crafty time!

Be Happy with Creative Muse Designs

     Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. This week our theme is anything goes. 
Looking at those cute stamps definitely makes me happy!
I discovered this cute set designed by Magda Polakow in the Topflights store. I drew some frames onto my card base and masked them on one side. Stamped the puppies and colored them with Copics. Drew the frames with fine liner pen. Cut them out and glued them onto the Kraft colored paper. Stamped the sentiment and cut it out as well and added it to the card.
I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.
And here are the stamp supplies I used:
