It is Topflight Stamps 4th birthday and to celebrate, I have been invited to join the team and some other great designers to showcase birthday cards using the unique products available at Topflight Stamps.
As Donna stocks a great range of PaperArtsy products I have created a birthday card and matching tag using Raquel's latest stamp release along with some new Fresco Finish Paints .... more about the card later in the post!
Please hop along with us and see all the beautiful talent from this group of amazing designers! You should have arrived here from Lisa Hoel's blog. If not, no worries, catch the details below.
Follow along here and if you get lost you can always start at the Topflight Stamp Blog.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without prizes! Topflight Stamps is giving one lucky winner a $100 Gift Certificate to the store. But wait, there is more, each stop on the hop has an additional $25 Gift Certificate up for grabs for some lucky commenter. For a chance to win, make sure to visit every stop on the hop and leave a comment by March 29th. Winners will be announced on the Topflight Stamps blog on March 31st. Good Luck!
And so here are the details of my birthday card and tag:
I decided to make a tall slim card and matching tag using single layer stamping techniques and Raquel's lovely new stamps to create a feeling of depth.
My video below on single layer stamping with these stamps shows how to use this technique with Raquel's latest stamps and PaperArtsy Paints and Satin Glaze:
I am no painter but it is easy to use these stamps to good effect with either paints or inks.
I used four individual Fresco Finish colours along with Satin Glaze. You will see from the video above how easy it is to combine the glaze and paints to create a lovely silky soft look.
There are some nice small sentiments included in the latest stamp release which work well on tiny tags.
I hope this little set will give you some ideas and inspiration for using these PaperArtsy stamps and products, all of which you can get from TopFlight Stamps.
Thank you to Donna and the team for inviting to me to share in the Birthday Celebrations!
