Celebrate Christmas with Darkroom Door

Hi, Connie here with a mixed media type Christmas card using
six different Darkroom Door stamps/sets along with some
clear embossing powder.  If you love the distressed look, this 
is a fun project for you. 

This is a 5"X5" card.  The snowflakes are clear embossed,
creating a resist.  I used two color combos of Distressed Oxide
ink to get the blue distressed sky look. 

The tree is stamped with Distress Oxide, trimmed out and then speckled
with water.  The funky border is the Abstract 09 stamp. I really
love what it brings to a project! 
The other enhancements are
stamped with Archival ink and trimmed out.

I used dimensional adhesive to pop up the images (Santa,
sleigh and the numbers).  The sentiment is two different stamps
that are stamped out creating the sentiment.  I love the script 
and print together!!

The card is speckled with white acrylic paint (using an old
toothbrush), to complete the card front.  Adhere to a folded
card base.

Celebrate — You've Got This

Greetings! It's Tuesday so you've got Kathi here to share a project with you. This week my teammates and I are celebrating winter and/or Christmas. 

I decided to celebrate some winter fun with this card.

I started the card by stamping two of the penguins and the snowballs from the Penguins 2 Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Craft Emotions. The images and background were colored with Copic markers and enhanced with a white paint marker, a glitter pen, clear glaze pen.

The little scene was then framed with plaid patterned paper cut with the smaller of the two dies from the Scalloped Rectangles Frame Die Set by Paper Rose.

Snowflakes Background Red Rubber Cling Stamp by Darkroom Door was stamped onto the green patterned paper from the Watercolor Basics 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad by Paper Rose using sparkly white pigment ink.

Both sentiments, from the Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set by Heffy Doodle, were stamped onto white cardstock using Onyx Black VersaFine Ink by Tsukineko.

Please visit my blog, Kat's Tales of Stamping, for more information including detailed instructions and complete supply lists.

Let's Make a December Daily Page

 Hello Topflight Stamp Friends! Karen Bearse here with a December Daily page that can easily be converted to a card. This week the team is working with a Christmas/Winter theme. I am still determined to finish my December Daily Album for 2019. I like how this turned out & may make another for 2020. Working on these helps get me in the Christmas Spirit & reminds me that the importance of the  holiday is about family shenanigans!

This is the page I did front & back. So much wintery goodness on this! Let's take a look at the products that were used. For a full list plus a tutorial you can hit my blog here. 

The base of my page is from the Stamperia paper pack. Did you know that TF now sells paper? There are also some great bundles including the paper & chipboard for these pages. This one is called Winter's Tale & is just stunning.  

 This was the quote "Warm Winter Wishes" used on the front page of my piece. Just love the imagery of this set by Sara Naumann for PaperArtsy. 

This quote was embossed with Seth Apter's Blue Moon from his Cosmic set. Just love the different flecks of blue's & tiny bit of black which makes it very dynamic. The photos don't do it justice!

The snow flakes on this set by Jofy are very interesting & the accent images in them are great! I accentuated them with a gold gel pen. 

For the quote "Peace Be With You" from the above ESN40 set Weathered Gold emboss, from the Metalz Trio by Seth was perfect. I also added some script images from the set ESN41. That is it for the base parts of my page. This page gave me some awesome therapy & I have a piece ready to go in my December Daily project, such a bonus! I hope you check back to see what the team will be up to this week. Now go get inky!!

Hobby Art Christmas Wrens in the Snow Cards


Hi everyone!  It's Autumn with SewPaperPaint with you today to share a little Christmas card inspiration with gorgeous stamps by Hobby Art Ltd.  I've paired the Jenny Wren set with some Christmas stamps to give it a new spin.  I made some other Christmas cards with these wren stamps HERE and just can't stop!  This time I chose the three birds on a branch and watercolored them with Distress Inks.

Then I embossed green cardstock panels with the Winter's Snowflakes stamp set in gold.  I sponged the edges of the panel with Distress Ink in Rustic Wilderness to create a halo effect, then gave the panels a splash of watery gesso.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Frosting stamp set and layered it over some bundled gold thread.  I finished by adhering some gold adhesive pearls.  I think they are quite festive, how about you?

Tracy Scott Flower Stencil


I hope you all had a great week and are having a happy Friday! Ericka here with Strangely Creative and today I'm painting up the PaperArtsy Tracy Scott PS280 stencil. 

For my first project I used watercolor pencils with the stencil. I was cleaning out my stash and forgot about these fun pencils and decided to trace the flower stencil on watercolor paper. 

For my next project, I had saved some planner tabs (the backgrounds are so pretty) and decided to create a swatch book with them. I used a black pen to trace the stencil and then painted the images up with some acrylics in my stash.

I love this fun stencil and can't wait to create some more swatch pages. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hogs and Kisses with Hobby Arts

    Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today! 
This week it's anything goes. A good way to increase my Christmas card pile!

I fell in love with those cute Hobby Arts stamps the moment I saw them! I did a half ass no line coloring technique, using markers and Inktense pencils. Added a lot of snow splatter and some Stickles to the tree and hat. As so often, a simple one layer 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:

Sweet Deer Tags

Hi, Connie here with a set of three Deer Tags using  the
NEWLY released Medium Journal Blocks stencil by
Darkroom Door and the Deer pattern paper by Paper Favourites.
Topflight Stamps has some really fun stuff in the store ~
Check it out!!!!

The paper used is just the sweetest ever.  These tags would make great
baby gift tags.  Pastel in color and very soft!!! Just love them!!!

The tags are created in the same way just cut different images from
the pattern paper sheets. The tag is a regular shipping tag, covered in the
 pattern paper. I used the Medium Journal Block stencil
to get the wavy lines, going horizontally, on the tags. I used dimensional
 adhesive and popped up every other wavy strip.  A bottom border was
 created using a scallop punch.  The stitched effect is from the Journal
Block stencil also. 

Layers were added on each tag, along with paint to distress
the edges of the tags.

The sentiments were stamped out on white cardstock and
added to the tag front.  Seam binding trim and black jute
were added also to complete the tags.
