AALL & Create Texture Sampler



Happy Friday! Ericka from Strangely Creative here and I hope you are all doing well. Today I'm playing with the AALL & Create #660 Texture Sampler by Janet Klein. I love all the unique textures this set has and decided to make it a focal point of my card.

I stamped the images on my card base as well as on some leftover scraps. I then fussy cut the individual images out and glued them on to my card base.

 I then added the sentiment from AALL & Create Basic Sentiments Bipasha BK in Versafine Claire Nocturn ink.


I finished my card by  adding some details with my Posca pens. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

AALL&Create - Miss Dee at the Beach

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. This week we are featuring AALL&Create on the Topflight blog
I am sure you all have seen their beautiful stamps. Janet Klein, who has been designing for AALL&Create recently came out with the Miss Dee stamps - of course I fell for them!
Here you see Miss Dee at the beach, joined by those fun animals for an older set. I colored everything with Copics and sponged the background. Drew in some sand and waves. also added a bit of foamy water with using embossing powder.
Added the sentiment. I trimmed my card and added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom.
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:

I belong among the stars ~ AALL & Create

I love summer evenings. We sit as a family by the fire and watch all the planes fly through the sky, passing all the beautiful stars and galaxies above us. Sometimes I wish I was on a plane flying away, nowhere particular, but just to be among the stars. 

Products used


Start with a background using these colors for the galaxy.
This is 110lbs cardstock.

Silver heat emboss the stars. Remember to use an antistatic tool first.

Add more detail to the background using this stencil and distress ink. 

Washi tape is an excellent "filler" for dead spots in the background.

Color your sweet girl with Copic markers and always use a white gel/paint pen for highlights. 

This is a very cool die; I only used half of it here on the card.

I used liquid glue to the girl and die-cut, then double-sided foam tape for the sentiment and girl.         

Isn't she so sweet?? I hope you have a great day!

the journey is the destination - a journal page with AALL & Create Stamps

Greetings! It's Tuesday so you've got Kathi  to share a project with you! This week my teammates and I are showcasing AALL and Create's wonderful products. I've created a journal page using the Archway Clear Set #24 by Bipasha BK, the Newsprint Numbers Clear Stamp #434 by Janet Klein, the 

Here it is!

y first step was to stamp the archway with Copic-friendly ink onto the image panel and again onto repositionable label paper which was fussy-cut to create a mask.

The  train and tracks stamp was positioned and stamped onto the image panel. Copic markers were used to color the entire image panel. The list of markers used can be found on my blog.

The image panel was trimmed to fit onto the journal page and edged with Graphite Elements Ink by Lavinia Stamps using a Blender, also by Lavinia Stamps.

The largest of the Black Blending Brushes by Time for Tea Designs was used to brush Graphite Elements Ink over the journal page. True Confession: I only brushed a 1" border around the page as I knew that most of the page would be covered. 

The page was misted with water and heat set. 

Morning Mist VersaFine Clair Inks by Tsukineko was used to stamp the Newsprint Numbers Clear Stamp #434 on the top left and bottom right and the Multilayered Cogs Clear Stamp  #664 on the top right and bottom left. The Reckoner Digits Clear Stamp #543 by Tracy Evans was used to fill the gaps and to add another layer of detail.

The journal page and the binding holes were edged with Graphite Elements Ink

The image panel was adhered as shown and the sticker was added to finish the page.

Happy Father's Day with AALL + Create

 I hope those who celebrate had a very Happy Father's Day weekend! This is Rachel from and the card I'm sharing today is the card I sent to my dad for the day. I think it suits him pretty well :) The Topflight Stamps team is featuring AALL + Create all week long; you definitely don't want to miss the inspiration!

The AALL + Create Polaroid Pops challenge has been over for quite some time, but I really like the format for these stamp sets so I went with it. This card uses AALL + Create "Cookout" stamp set. The images are colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. The background is inked with Prism Ink Periwinkle and the Paper Artsy stencil PS 271. The fun pattern paper is from Studio Light Missees Collection.

My dad is definitely the grill-master of the family, grey haired n' all! I hope he enjoys the card <3

Tracy Evans Blackbird and Stars Card


Hi friends!  It's Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint with you today to share an inky creation featuring a favorite stamp set by Tracy Evans for AALL & Create, Blackbird.  Tracy has a new stamp release, which I haven't had a chance to play with yet, but you can take a look HERE.  For this card I used simple ink dipping techniques.  I dipped the top of my panel in watered Della Blue Elements Dye Ink, then the bottom in watered Graphite, which is a warm gray as you can see.  I fussy cut the stars and layered them over a second stamping, then filled in the design with the other stamps.  I cut the banner free hand and transposed some of the wording of the stamps. 

I stamped the bird in blue onto a die cut circle and really liked using the text vertically to "ground" him.  I finished with some bundled string and white Posca marker accents.  I hope you like it!

Click HERE to see the card I made for New Years with the Blackbird stamp set.  It's completely different, but will show you  just how versatile this set can be!  And click HERE to see all of our design team projects featuring Tracy's gorgeous stamps.  Have a great day!  Autumn

Lavinia Acrylic Sprays on a Birthday Tag



Hello friends! Ericka from Strangely Creative here and today I'm playing with some more Lavinia Acrylic sprays to make a bright birthday tag. I love using these sprays, not only are they bright but they are very fluid and spray so easily.

I sprayed the Lavinia Leaf Mask on a manila tag with the acrylic sprays in Sun Yellow, Chartreuse, Teal, and Claret and set it aside to dry, which was rather quick.  I then used Versafine Claire Twilight ink and stamped Lavinia Bron stamp. I then heat embossed it with WOW! Earl Gray which adds some sparkle to my fairy.

I stamped the Lavinia Heartfelt Verses and embossed it with the same powder. To finish my tag, I added shading and highlights especially around Bron to help her pop against my bright background.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
