Topflight Stamps 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

It’s Topflight Stamps 3rd birthday and to celebrate, I’ve teamed up with some great designers to showcase birthday cards 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! You should have arrived here from the Lindsay’s blog. If not, no worries, catch the details below along with the Giveaway information.

I made two cards for the blog hop since there are so many awesome stamps to play with.

My first card is using a variety of Visible Image products.

Cupcakemain

I started by Distress Oxide ink blending on Bristol Smooth paper with Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, and Mermaid Lagoon. I then added some gold acrylic paint over the Visible Image Ripples Stencil.

I stamped and colored in this tiny cupcake from the Visible Image Accessorize set with my Zig Real Brush Markers and colored pencils. I fussy cut the image and added it with foam tape to my base.

Cupcakeup

I added the sentiment from the Visible Image Happy Birthday and heat embossed it with WOW Blue Glitz to finish my card.

For my second card I had to use Katzelkraft, another one of my favorite brands. I used this Dog set which was one of my first stamps from Topflight.

I started out with some more Distress Oxide ink blending in Antique Linen. I added the Visible Image Count Me In stencil and used Broken Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxides to blend the numbers.

dogclose

I stamped and colored up this fun dog and bone with Zigs and colored pencils and fuzzy cut them out. Here is where it gets fun. I added an Action Wobble to the back so now he moves like an excited dog would, minus the jumping lol.
