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!

you enjoy all the amazing

  11. Hi Connie, I am not sure if my comment is still in moderation, so I am posting it again just in case.
    I love all the fun elements of your journal cover. The way you dressed your Crazy Birds is too cute. I love the bird with a tie and the bird on the scooter. Your Studio Light tags are so unique. I think it was so so nice of you to create a tag for your friend Rachel Grieg.

  12. Great project!
