The background is made with Brusho's, and a few smaller images.
The flowers were left white, to make them 'pop' against the coloured background
A bit of doodling and a few sequins, and I was finished.
Hope you like it 😀
Hi everyone, I'm back again with a card made using stamps by
KAISERCRAFT.....A few years ago, I was lucky enough to visit the
Kaisercraft HQ just outside of Melbourne, Australia. It was amazing, I
was like a kid in a sweet shop, so much to choose from. I've liked
Kaisercraft stamps ever since and was very happy to see that TOPFLIGHT STAMPS
carry a selection.
This week I've used a set called ISLAND ESCAPE - find them HERE
To make the background, I used Distress Oxides and blending brushes.
stamped the palm tree images & sentiment directly onto the inked
background, then added a bit of shading & doodling to give the beach
& sea effect.
The flowers were stamped onto a separate piece of card, coloured, cut-out, then adhered to the main topper.
I was quite pleased with the finished card, it turned out exactly as I had imagined it, thankfully. Hope you like it 😀
Well, that's all for this week......hope to catch you soon.
In the meantime, as always, have a great weekend and a crafty week ahead.
Hi everyone, I'm back with my weekly blog post for TOPFLIGHT STAMPS......I can't believe how
quickly the weeks are flying by, it just seems a few hours since I did
my last post 😏
Anyway, this week I've made a little tag/bookmark with some fabulous Rubber Dance Stamps, designed by Susanne Rose. I love Susanne's work, so when I saw these 'Textured Houses' I just knew I had to have them.
I inked up a piece of cardstock with Izinks , then laid a bubble stencil over the top and sponged through with white Gesso.
houses were stamped onto an old book page, cut-out and inked with
contrasting colours, then adhered to the background. I mounted the
coloured piece onto black card, as a base.
I inked a piece of seam binding to match.
I love these little houses, so this won't be the last time you see me using them 😀

Catch you soon, but as always, have a fab, crafty weekend.
Hi bloggers, I'm here again...... and this week I've made a couple of tags to show you.
I've used a fabulous new stamp by Carabelle-Studio.
This stamp is a complete image and makes for a very quick card or tag.
I inked up a piece of cardstock with some new inks called Izinks......they are BRIGHT!!
I then applied white paint through an Andy Skinner stencil, from PaperArtsy.
the card cut in half, the stamp was inked with Versamark, then heat
embossed....... one piece in white and the other in black. I stamped the
butterfly part on separate inked card, cut them out and adhered to the
I was just curious how different the tags would look, although they were identical apart from the colour of embossing powder.
I'm still not sure which one I prefer 😀 what do you think??
Topflight Stamps have a massive selection of Carabelle Studio stamps, why not pop over to check them out?
I've used black smooth, and white Hopsack on these cards.
stamped the large flower onto previously inked background, then cut it
out. At this stage I added doodles, with a white pen. .....Using
Distress Oxides and a blending brush, I lightly inked a small part of
white textured card stock, to give a very soft base for the vibrant
flower. I splashed a bit of contrasting colour over the card, then
adhered the flower to the background.
I filled in parts of the image with Ranger 'Glossy Accents'.
The 'mum' was die-cut and adhered along with a small sentiment.
The whole 'topper' was mat onto black card, then a white card base of the same textured card.
My usual few sequins and I was done.
Because I love this new stamp set, I made a second card whilst I had the stamps out, in a different colour.
I've also used a Jofy stencil on this one.....(the leaves are actually a pretty green colour, but look anemic in the pic 😕)
Well, as always, have a great weekend, with plenty of crafting if you get the chance.
