Pick of the Patch

Happy Friday Topflight Stamp Fans! Ericka here with a cute Halloween card using Polkadoodles Pick of the Patch. I love this little set and the mouse is so cute!

This set comes with only one mouse, but he or she was very easy to mask off so I could put them in the pumpkin as well as the shoe they came in.

There are so many other cards you can also make with this set. I can't wait to use just the pumpkin for a clean and simple card and the candy and leaves are fun additions.

For more information on how I created my card, feel free to stop by my blog Strangely Creative. Until then, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Toxique Bones

Hello Cathy Norton here with a Halloween card I have made for you this week. Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love making cards for it.

I started out with some Distress Oxide Spray. I sprayed and smooched the spray on white cardstock. I really loved how it gave a rusty, grungy look.
Next I stamped the web border on the top of the card.

On a scrap piece of paper I stamped the skeleton and cut out and added foam tape to the back. The stark white of the skeleton just pops on the grungy card. I stamped the Happy Halloween next to the skeleton and it didn't stamp straight so I covered it with some washi and Halloween ephemera.

Ghostly greetings, Topflight fans! Toni here with you today sharing a Halloween card. I love this time of year! The turning leaves, the cooling weather, the upcoming holidays.  Yay!!!!

I started the card by sponging the Darkroom Door Mixed Boxes Stencil with Distress Oxides. 

Next I stamped some Aall and Create Textures #50 images using Distress Oxide and Versafine Onyx Black.

Lastly I stamped the sentiments from Polkadoodles Spooktacular using Versafine Onyx Black and positioned a few of the ghosts on the card front.

I love that the ghosts can have different faces and even scars. This is a versatile set for sure!

Oh my goodness!  I just realized these ghosts could be used head down so then they're wearing hats. Neat!

Halloween Crow Art Journal Page

Time for a spooky Halloween raven art journal page. Karen Bearse with you today & we are playing with paint & texture. You can check out a full tutorial on my blog here!

Art Journal was the order of the day. I pulled out a bunch of supplies & just had fun, stenciling with color, adding texture. So relaxing & made me want to pull out my Halloween supplies!
This Crafty Individuals stamp, Gothic Crow is seriously detailed & stunning, so it was perfect as my focal point. 

I love using die cuts from this book, Art by Marlene. 

Stencils such as this one by Darkroom Door were used to create the background under the texture.

Love this Fresco Finish acrylic paint by PaperArtsy when color is needed!

I distressed the edges of my page with Eileen Hull Aqua Splash Emboss by Emerald Creek- love that pop of color!
Every good embossing powder needs an ink pad! 

Finally to glue it all down I used Cosmic Shimmer glue for the 1st time. I have to say it did a really good job of sticking my ephemera & stamped image with no fuss. Thanks so much for joining me here to get a wee bit of pre-Halloween fun in!! Now go get inky!

Three Girls

Welcome back Topflight fans and  a happy Friday! Ericka here with some quick tags I made for my young readers using the Studio Light Girl Boss set.

These girls are so fun to play with and the best part is you can switch up the different parts to make a variety of characters.

I also was playing with this stencil from Pronty and gelatos and a stencil from Visbile Image and Distress Oxides to get some fun backgrounds.

One I stamped my girls, I used colored pencils to give them some fun colors.

That's all for me today. For more information on how I created my bookmarks, feel free to stop by my blog Strangely Creative. I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with crafting!

Protect Your Magic

Happy Thursday to you all. I have a card for you all today. It is fast and simple but has a grungy aspect to it. 

I started out by stamping Pretty One, colored with copics and cut out. Here is a tip you might not know; edge your cut out, stamped images with a black marker. It will not have that harsh white edge.

Next take a piece of pattern paper that has some grunge already in it and cut it down to fit on the front of a card. Then take  Hearts & Lines Border stamp and some gray and green/gray ink and randomly stamp it all over. I then took the ink blot stamp from Tender Hearts of Moogli and stamped that in black ink.
Take some washi tape and add it to the bottom of the card so the pretty one has something to stand on. Add her to the top of the washi tape.

Lastly I stamped some of the stars from the Fairy Bugs also in black ink. I also added some other small stars to fill in the space. I then added some gems to the center of the largest star in that stamp. On the top I added a saying and the card is done.
