Hi Susan,
Here are my card toppers, I have made 4 as they fitted with the stamps I wanted to use.
I have used Purple and Black co-ordinations cardstock, a purple ink, Stampin Up Happy Moments Stamps, and Cuttlebug folders.

Oh Tammi they are really striking! Nice sanding there.

Thank you for taking part in the papercraftcentral.com Creative Challenge :) I can see you have made these according to the rules and have used some Stampin' Up! stamps, so you now have two entries in the draw for the little RAK I will be giving away.

All the best, and keep making those toppers! They are so useful for making a quick card when you need one, aren't they?

Happy Stampin'!

Stampin' Up! Card Toppers

Stampin' Up! Card Toppers

I have used Stampin Up! Stamps for this challenge (I think they were called "Priceless"), I had fun embossing which I haven't done for a while. Hope you like them!

I love having card toppers handy to whip up cards at a moments notice. GREAT Challenge Susan!!

Jaimie.

Hi Jaimie

Your card toppers are beautiful and you are spot on with the name of the stamp set you used. It is indeed 'Priceless'. Isn't embossing fun?

Thank you so much for taking part in the challenge! I am awarding you two entries in the draw for the little RAK I am giving to someone at the end of this month :)

Happy stampin'!

Card Toppers in Ink

by Meenakshi
(Delhi, India)





These are cards made from recycled paper Air-India manila folders with a soft beautiful texture when seen for real.
I have used Ball-point pens - red & black - to color the designs, taking care to keep the strokes in the same direction.
Unfortunately, the jpeg images do not do justice to the paper or the pen strokes the red pen appears scratchy ;-))
"Fluttering Dreams" was initially titled "Reaching Out" ; this card is a visual representation of this logo that I use on all my cards.

I had fun participating in this contest. Strictly speaking, these cards have been made ages ago - not for this specific competition. Just wanted to share the artwork & ideas. So, if you decide not to add my name to the draw, I understand :-)

Happy Valentine's Day, all !

*******************


Meenakshi, thank you for your beautiful card toppers and also for your honesty about when they were made. Is the "Fluttering Dreams" one the one of the little girl reaching up? I like that you recycled the Air-India manila folders, too :)

Strictly speaking, the 'rules' for the competition do not state that your uploaded artwork must be new, so I see no reason not to include you in the draw. I will put one entry in the competition for you for your beautiful art. I could have put two entries if you had used a Stampin' Up! image somewhere but I don't recognise yours as being from Stampin' Up? They look entirely original to me :)

Than you again for entering the competition!

Happy crafting!

Susan

Please note a lot of the products I have used are retired Stampin Up! products from 2009-2010. A few are current. In any event here is a list of the various Stampin' Up! products I have used in making this collection of card toppers ...

Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss plus Watercolor Paper
Inks - Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss
Stamp set - Organic Outlines
Taffeta ribbon - Crumb Cake and Whisper White
Dies - Top Note and Scallop Circle
Punches - various circles (to make the handmade flowers) and Scallop Trim Border
Miscellaneous - 2-Way Glue Pen, Aqua Painter and Sponge Daubers

In relation to the other materials used, the brads are Making Memories, the glitter is Pink Paislee, the embossing folder is Cuttlebug Jamara and the ink I've used on the Crumb Cake cardstock is VersaMark Dazzle.

I think I've covered everything LOL! Thanks for a fabulous challenge Susan. I'm off to pop these onto cards as I don't think I can wait for the 'right opportunity' to come along!!!

Alz :)

***********************


Alz, your toppers are simply wonderful. I can imagine they are going to make beautiful cards!

Thank you so much for making them and for uploading them with a complete materials list. That is so helpful to anyone wanting to make a similar topper.

The rules of the challenge do not require the Stampin' Up! products you use to be current, just that you use something from Stampin' Up! on your card toppers, so you definitely qualify for two tickets in the draw for my little RAK :)

Thank you again!

Happy stampin'!

Set of 3 Card Toppers

by Patacake1956
(Chicago)


I use ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) for a lot of my Card Toppers, but your challenge sparked the need to try out my Epic Six. I have Label Four Nestabilities by Spellbinders to cut the base shape onto white cardstock (WalMart). I stamped the LOVE symbol from Stampin' Up's Kanji stamp set. I also used the same Nestabilities to cut the next size larger to frame the stamped image, using a discarded teal-colored file folder from work (Recycled). I then played around with different bottom layers, using two different shapes from Nestabilites, although one I didn't use another layer.

The card topper with the white bottom layer was embellished with black Skittles; the topper with the black bottom layer was embellished with an acrylic flower from a swap and an adhesive-backed pearl; the third topper with only two layers was embellished with a black button and a bit of fiber.

I can use these on Valentine cards and treats, and on Birthday cards.

Oh, Patacake1956, these are lovely card toppers!

Thank you for entering the challenge and for being sure to tell me what supplies you used. I see you have a Stampin' Up! image there so I will be putting your name in the hat twice for chances to win the little RAK I have in mind for the challenge :)

Instant Card Toppers

by Meenakshi
(New Delhi, India)




Hi Susan !

Here's a set of card toppers I made especially for this challenge.

I've stuck to my recycling theme, but focused on the image being hassle-free, Zero wastage & 'instant'.

I've used the back of visiting cards for the project. For the main images, I've used the 'lucky star' Origami paper (double-sided - red & pink), quilling strips, crinkle-roller, & a floral punch.

The flowers were punched along the border of the paper; thus giving me free flowers as well as a stenciled design that was used on the other 2 cards. Absolutely No Wastage :-)

Incidentally, these card toppers can also be used as gift tags. The name is already on the back of the visiting card & a short message, if required, can be written on the blank space of the card.

I've titled my cards under "Spring" :
1. Trellis
2. Bouquet
3. Love in Spring

These are not as creative as the ones you & your contributors have displayed, but I enjoyed making them - all of 10 minutes ;-))


***************************


Meenakshi, your are indeed creative! Your toppers look wonderful and I am glad to have them as an entry into the Creative Challenge draw. It is a real bonus that you not only recycled but made them in such a short period of time. And they are so versatile! I like the idea of using them as gift tags :)

I am giving you another chance to win the little RAK I have in mind to give to one of the entrants in a few day's time.

Happy crafting!

Susan
