Topflight Stamps 6th Annual Birthday Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome. It's Topflight Stamps 6th birthday and to celebrate, they’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! (List of Hop Stops available at the end of this post and on the Topflight Stamps blog HERE). They are also Hopping on Instagram! You can start at the Topflight Stamps account @topflightstamps


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!

For my project I decided to keep it simple and made a card, opting to leave it open enough to celebrate a birthday but also maybe to celebrate a special person just because.

I've used gel plate prints to create the background, the PaperArtsy stamp set EKC64 by Kay Carley to stamp the flowers and sentiment on top, and PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints in Vanilla, Pumpkin Soup, Amethyst, and Granny Smith to add colour to the flowers. The new PaperArtsy Mini stencil PM023 has been used to add perforation dots to the background with Snowflake PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint and I've used the Vanilla colour to paint the layer beneath the main panel. 

Don't miss the sale also going on over at Topflight Stamps! There is a wide selection of fab stamps and products sourced from all over the world. And make sure to enter the giveaway to be in with a chance to win!

For now thanks for visiting,

Wordsoup, Tags & Pockets for Eileen Hull Designs

Hi everyone and welcome. This month Wordsoup, Tags & Pockets” is the new March theme for Eileen Hull's teams. Words and letters are being used in projects that also combine the new Chapter 1 and older dies of Eileen’s. I've created a collection of tags, cards and pockets that will go inside something that will be revealed in all its glory next month!

There's lots of texture included on all of these interactive elements; I've done a lot of stencilling through a die cut panel using Eileen's Sizzix Thinlits 'Skinny Mini Elements' Die.

The pocket panel, the page tabs and some of the little ATC cards have been die cut using Eileen's Sizzix Thinlits 'Library Pocket, ATC Card & Tab' Die Set.

The tags were die cut using the medium size tag from Eileen's Sizzix Thinlits 'Card, Waterfall & Tags' Die Set.

Of course the words were made from Eileen's Sizzix Thinlits 'Tiled Alphanumeric' Die.

Throughout the pages I've also included lots of hand stitching, in particular using some of Eileen's long since retired die designs (proof as if it were needed that Eileen's dies will last you a lifetime of creativity!)

I'm looking forward to sharing the completed project with you next month as part of the upcoming Chapter 2 release party. In the meantime thank you for joining me today and make sure to check out all the fantastic projects and tutorials from the rest of Eileen's team members - links to their posts can be found on Eileen's blog throughout the month.

For now thanks for visiting,
Jenny xxx
