Happy 3rd Birthday to Topflight Stamps!

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Hello Stampers! Today we'd like to celebrate the 3rd birthday of Topflight Stamps, one of our fabulous stockists in USA! To celebrate, we'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! There's prizes too, so be sure to check out all the details below! If you're on the hop already, you should have arrived here from Autumn Clark's blog. If this is your first stop on the hop, we've linked all the blogs below so you can start from the beginning! 


Donna, the owner of Topflight Stamps has become a wonderful friend to us here at Darkroom Door. We are so thrilled Topflight Stamps are celebrating their 3rd birthday and we have some fun cards to share to celebrate! The stamps used on these cards are all available at Topflight Stamps too. Go shopping for Darkroom Door stamps on their website here! 


1. Emboss white cardstock with an embossing folder and sponge over the top with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Mount onto black cardstock and then onto a folded yellow card. 
2. Die cut a piece of white cardstock using a large banner die, and repeat with black cardstock using a slightly larger banner die. Sponge around the white banner with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Adhere white banner to black banner. 
3. Stamp the Eat More Cake Quote Stamp onto the white banner using Archival Jet Black ink pad. Adhere banner to card. 
4. Tie some yellow ribbon through the hole of the teaspoon charm and adhere to card using foam adhesive. 



1. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Tall Flowers Stamp set down the left side of the cardstock. 

2. Mask off the sentiment with Post-It notes, then sponge ink through the Carved Leaves stencil on the right side of the sentiment. I alternated the leaves and ink colours to create a collection of leaves. This stencil is very intricate, so be slow and gentle with your sponging to get the most accurate results. 

3. Masking off the sentiment in the opposite way, so you only see a little strip of white card stock on the left. Sponge a small strip of colour down the left side of the sentiment using Poppy ink pad.

4. Adhere the finished panel onto black cardstock and wraps twine around the left side before adhering to a folded Kraft card base. 



1. Stamp the Honeycomb Background Stamp onto white cardstock with Buttercup Archival Ink. 

2. Spray Pure Sunshine Shimmer Spray over the top. 

3. Stamp a sentiment and two bees from the Buzzing Bees Stamp Set. Punch the sentiment out with a circle punch. Trim around the bees with scissors. Sponge Buttercup Archival Ink around the circle and adhere all pieces to the card with foam adhesive. 

4. Adhere panel to a folded yellow toned card base.

Wonderful trio of cards that are so different from one another. I'm glad that I don't have to choose a favorite!

I like the look of these cards. They are very sharp. The splatter looks fantastic on the honeycomb. I like the crisp feathers and the added tie finish.

These are all great! They're perfect unisex cards, too.

Each card is different , gets my juices flowing in my head to create something new. Thanks for the inspiration.
Connie Mercer commented on 25-Mar-2020 04:17 AM
Love the cards and your style! The designs are so timeless. That is what I love the most about the Darkroom Door line, it is timeless. So many designers proof that point all the time using early releases with current released stamps. Kudos to you and Stew!!! Awesome product!!!

What a great trio of cards! Such a cute idea to add the charm to the first one. The inked stenciling on the second is so simple but lovely. And that bee card is outstanding!
