Butterflies with Topflight stamps

  Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Topflight  blog post.
Today I am going to share the 8*8'' Mixed Media canvas made with most gorgeous Katzelkraft Butterflies stamp set and I am going to show  you a few stamping techniques while working over the Mixed Media canvas project.
First I added the background texture with texture paste and stencils (Tando Creative UK) and glued a few cardstock pieces with DCWV old cardstock collection. 
Then the whole piece was painted with DecoArt acrylic paints.
It's almost impossible to stamp over this heavy textured canvas, so I stamped the flowers stamps from the same stamp set over the white tissue paper and glued them on the bottom of the canvas with gel medium.



Now I decided to stamp over small flowers and butterflies bare chipboards and I just used the large stamps and stamped on the chipboards " as is". I used black pigmented ink (Memento Luxe) and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then I colored the heat embossed chipboards with more acrylic paint and you can see that the butterflies are pretty much similar to the large ones on the bottom even with this partial stamping due the chipboard shapes size.


 The sentiment is the most gorgeous Rubber Dance one and I hand cut it to the strips to make the " canvas look" for the sentiment.


 Then two large and full size butterflies were stamped, colored and glued over the canvas.


Here are the stamps used to make this project:


 I really hope that you liked my weekly inspiration post today and as you know all stamps are in the Topflight shop waiting for you !
See you next week for more Topflight inspiration!

Live your Dream: huge Mixed Media tag with Magenta

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share my huge Mixed Media tag made with a lot of gorgeous Magenta stencils and stamps.



This is a 9*4.5'' tag (almost 22*11 cm) made on the corrugated cardboard base.
The white thick cardstock was covered with texture paste over with one of  TM53 Background Trio stencils. When it was totally dry the mix of mists was added over the tag.
Then some letters were painted with TM219 Alpha and Number duo stencil)-alpha part of it- and teal acrylic paint.



For the next step the stamped images were added over the tag. As it's almost impossible to stamp properly over this thick texture I stamped  Blossom Square image over the white tissue paper with permanent black ink (Ranger Archival) and then glued the stamped and torn pieces over the tag as shown. Actually it was stamped three times and one of the piece was adhered as is in the middle and the other two were glued by pieces on the bottom and on the top.



The " Live your dreams" sentiment was stamped with permanent black ink over white cardstock and then misted and trimmed to fit the colors and the size of the finished tag.
I added the die cut doily that was cut into two pieces over the tag and made the flowers , chipboard and lace cluster as the focal embellishments point of the tag.
I really hope that you like my huge Mixed Media tag and would try to make a similar project using our delicious Magenta products.

My Dragon Mixed Media page

Hello my dear crafty friends!
So today I am going to share an art page made as my tribute to the most known  TV show- Game of Thrones.
 This was my last project made for Art Anthology after a full year on the design team and it is a time to move to another anventures or maybe just  do more crafting  for my soul without any deadlines, tutorials and special needs for the crafty rpoject.


Actually I am more book lover than TV lover, so I made it as a " Song of Ice and Fire" page with the dragon as the main image. Also I added some film strips around, but it was to add some interest and depth to the page with more layers added to main embellishments cluster.


As you can see that background was made over the Mixed Media cardstock with two Art Anthology stencils and texture paste.
Then two embossing glitters were added over the wet paste and heat embossed to get this distressed look of the glittered paste.

Steampunk ATC with Topflight stamps


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Topflight blog post.
As you most probably already know I am a big fan of all things Steampunk and when it's our " free projects" weeks I try to make something in my favorite style.
So today I am going to share a couple of Steampunk ATC card and each one is a real piece of Steampunk art.
Both ATC were made with Carabelle Studio stamps that were stamped with black pigmented ink (my latest love is Memento Luxe  pigmented inks) that then were heat embossed with black embossing powder. 
Then the embossed cardstock was painted with Prima Marketing Mixed Media paints and some, not much, of embellishments were added to these small cards.



This is the first card and it was embellished with metal cogs and one clay handmade piece.


The second art card was embellished in the same style: a couple of metal cogs and one single clay piece.

 Isn't it a fun and quick way to make a bunch of ATC for any Steampunk swap?
Just stamp a large cardstock piece, paint over the heat embossed images and then cut it to the right ATC size.
Embellish with whatever you have in hand and swap with you Steampunk lover friends.
And  now for the stamps used on this project that you can buy from Topflight shop:



Thanks for reading my weekly post.

If you would like to see more of my work you are mostly welcome to my own blog.
 See you all next weeks with a totally different stamping inspiration!

Topflight stamps: Studio light and Craft Emotions

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first October TOPFLIGHT stamps post.
This week the DT was challenged to use Studio Light  and/or Craft Emotions stamps and I used both on my fancy shabby style card.



As you can see this card was made over white cardstock die cut front piece using the Studio Light background  180 stamp, clear embossing ink and black embossing powder.
Then the colorful background was made over the heat embossed image using a mix of Ranger Distress Oxide inks and water and I need to say that this is the most beautiful background made in just a few seconds.
The main image- Bird- was stamped  in the same way with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder using Birds-Spring from Craft Emotions.
Then the hand cut image was colored with Zig Real Brush water colors markers and glued over the cluster of embellishments made with clay frame, chipboards, flowers, leaves die cuts and a Love word die cut. 



Here are  the stamps I used to make this project:





I really hope that you like my shabby card and would try to make a similar one with Topflight shop gorgeous stamps from both shown companies.
