Topflight Stamps 7th Birthday Blog Hop~

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
Flowers vol.2,
Fine Leaves, Number Medley, Take Flight, Milestone 
 and Great Friend (small stamps).

Did we mention there will be prizes?

Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without prizes! Topflight Stamps is giving four lucky winners $50 Gift Certificates to the store. 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. U.S.A winners only due to shipping issues. Good Luck!

Don't forget we're also having a SALE in the store during the celebration. Check out the selection of stamps and other goodies sourced from all around the world!

Thanks for stopping by and hope
you enjoy all the amazing

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:):) 
All adhesives used are by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
