To do list Art Journal Page~

Hi there!!
I have a fun art journal page to share using
mainly Sweet 'n Sassy/Creative Worship stamps.

The background is a mixture of Distress Oxide inks.  I use
them like I would water colors. The oxide reacts with water
so that gives another distressed look to the page.  

The background stamp called Messy Marks really got my
attention.  I couldn't wait to order it.  I colored some of the boxes,
that the stamp creates, with the oxide inks.  Love the look it
gave the page.  This has some collage elements also. The focal, 
the bird in the nest, and in the right hand top corner the postage stamp.

Products used:
Sweet n' Sassy/Creative Worship: to do list, Going postal, grunge 
elements, Birthday Word Art, Messy Marks BG stamp and Mixed Up
Paperartsy: Mattint Squeezed (used on the postage stamp).
Posca markers, Distress Oxide inks. 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Crafty Foam Tape 108' white

Small Art Journal pages~

Hi there!
I came across this small 4x6 art journal and thought It
could be treated like a tag except I could keep the pages, in the
journal, all together!    

I used Distress Oxide inks and stamps by Katzelkraft called
Spiral Borders and Ephemera.  Both of these sets work so well
used together. 

The word stickers are by Creative Expressions called Hello 
Spring.  They come on a sheet and you cut off what you need.
I bought these products at Topflight stamps.  All adhesive is by
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Thanks for stopping by. I will keep working in this art 
journal and share my progress!

the singing birds.  These are the colors she is using for her 

The colors are fossilized amber, rusty hinge, festive berries and 
rustic wilderness. 

The stamps used are called Sing Loud (retired), Geometric BG,

It's Topflight Stamps 7th birthday and time to celebrate. I’ve teamed up 
with some great 
designers to showcase celebratory projects using
 the unique products available at Topflight Stamps.  Please hop
 along with us and see all the beautiful talent from this group of amazing
 designers! The master list, of hop stops, is on the Topflight Stamps Blog
We are also Hopping on 
Instagram! You can start at the 
 Topflight Stamps account @topflightstamps

I created an Art Journal page and two mixed media style tags.  I will list the
products after each project is explained.  I'm using Katzelkraft
Studio Light, Paper Artsy and Darkroom Door.  

The background is created with a mix of Distress Oxide inks.  I then
added some very cool eclectic stamps from Kazelkraft using Archival/
Jet Black ink.  The focal images (crazy birds) and the text is stamped out,
colored and then trimmed.  The elements are added to the front
of the page with wet glue and dimensional adhesives.  To complete
the mixed media (messy look) I speckled with black acrylic paint.
Products: Katzelkraft: Les AccessoiresLes Piafs (crazy birds),
 Literary Quotes, Contraptions and Things, EphemeraDarkroom Door:
Stitched Borders and Ransom Alphabet.  Paper Artsy: HP 2401 and
HP 2402.

I'm using tags by Studio Light as the base for my mixed media creations.

The instructions for the tags are the same as the Art Journal page.
Same steps make it easy!!! 
Products used: Studio Light Funky Tags, Katzelkraft: Les Piafs, Spiral
Elephant Watson, Les Accessoires and Whatchamacallit.
Paper Artsy: HP 2401, HP 2402.

This tag is created in the same manner but I was thinking
about Rachel Greig when I created it.   The last few years she
has been a part of the Topflight Stamps Birthday Blog Hop and
I didn't want her to miss this year.  So this is for Rachel!!!
Such a great friend and talented artist. 
Products used: Darkroom Door: Handwritten Ledger, Fine

Two winners will be chosen from commenters on the blog hop and two will be chosen from commenters on the IG hop. For a chance to win, make sure to visit the stops on the hop and leave a comment by April 1st. Winners will be announced on the Topflight Stamps blog on Monday, April 3rd.

Sea Life with Blue Knight Stamps~

Hi there!
I have a card to share using the Night Papers with the Sea Life
red rubber stamp
and the dies by Blue Knight Stamps.  Instead
of using the pattern paper as a night sky, I'm using it
as a deep ocean water scene.

I used the backside of the pattern paper for this look.  I added some
distressing by running the pattern wheel over the pattern paper with
acrylic white paint.  The  dies are added with dimensional adhesive and
I love the pop it gives the card front.

The sentiment is added using One Line Sentiments/blessings.
I added white acrylic paint to the edges to anchor the ocean
floor.  Looks like bubbles too!

Beached Canoe with Blue Knight Stamps~

Hi there!
I'm sharing a scenery card using the Beached Canoe
by Blue Knight Stamps.  I usually color with
panpastes and Distress Oxide ink but on this card I'm 
using colored pencils, colors and panpastels.  The pencils
and colors are by CARAND'ACHE.  They are a Swiss made
product.  Blue Knight sells these at StamperCon and other
stamping shows that they participate in. 

I'm also using one of last One Line Sentiments sets I did for Blue Knight  
Stamps called Did you know~.   Really sweet set and goes with just about 
any theme.  

I used the panpastels to do most of the coloring and then highlighted
with the pencils and colors.  My goal is to make my project
pleasing to my eye:):)

Backyard Blooms Cards with Buttons Galore & More~

Hi there!!
Sharing my last project using the Backyard Blooms 
Novelty buttons by Buttons Galore & More. I did a 
couple of mixed media cards and added buttons
and Jelly Beans as embellishments. Really love the
look and added dimension it gives the card front.

These were super fun to create and the background mix worked perfect
for the button mix that I wanted to add.  

The center of the flowers have the Jelly Bean half pearlz. They are easy
to set also. I used Dual Tip Glue Pen by HomeHobby by 3L.

Kleenex Covers with Buttons Galore & More ~

Hi there!
I have another fun project using the Spring Value pack
and the Patriotic Value pack by Buttons Galore & More.
I did two different Kleenex Covers using the novelty buttons
for decorations.

I used a pattern, that I made, to get the dimensions for the
Kleenex Covers.  This was my starting point and I adjusted
as I needed to.  I used fabric glue but you sure could sew them
with a machine or hand sew. 

I know this is rough :):). The sides are going to be long but just trim
when you make the center fold.  I hand sewed the buttons on
 with coordinating embroidery thread.   

They make really cute gifts!!!

Deer by the River with Blue Knight Stamps~

Hi there!!
I got to play with the NEW stamp called
Silhouette Deer by the River  by
Blue Knight Stamps.  The picture of
this stamp could have been taken on our
property, maybe that is why I love it!!!  

The card is stamped with Versafine/Black Onyx and the
sky and pond water are colored with panpastels.  I used a circle mask to
get the sunset.  The sentiment is from the One Line Sentiments/
The bird is from the Birds ll set.

If you love nature this is a great stamp to add to your collection.
It is easy to color and looks stunning!!!  All adhesive
