Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Friday, May 05, 2017

Hi, it is Godelieve today. I'm sharing two cards I made with the Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp from the new release. How cute is that dog?


On the first card I stamped the dog with Archival Ink Potting Soil. I've cut the dog out and watercolored him with Distress Inks Frayed Burlap and Worn Lipstick.


The coloured background was coloured on a non-stick craft sheet with Distress Oxide inks. After the paper dried I have cut it to size and distressed the edges. Then I stamped the Playing Quote stamp using Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain.

Before I composed the card, I have stamped some marks from the Grunge Marks set with Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain. I also stapled down a strip of corrugated cardboard for the dog to sit on.


I thought the dog needed something to play with, so I stamped the circles stamp from the Grunge Marks set and used a circle punch to cut a ball.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp 
Darkroom Door Playing Quote Stamp
Darkroom Door Grunge Marks Stamp Set 
Archival Inkpad: Potting Soil
Distress Inkpads: Frayed Burlap, Worn Lipstick
Distress Oxide Inkpads: Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain
Tonic Paper Distresser
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Circle Punch

If you read my blog, maybe you know that I love simple black and white cards. So my second card had to be a black and white one.


I used black Archival Ink to stamp the cute dog, and cut him out. 


But I wanted to add a bit of color, so I gave him a little red heart, it is a stamp from the All Occasions set. I heat embossed it with red embossing powder.

On the white panel I stamped a lady from the Just My Style set and words from the Art De Fleur Vol 2 set. I used a black pen to draw a frame.

Black twine was used as a leash. I made two small cuts, so the leash could go behind the lady's back.

I used a white gel pen to draw a line onto the black card and glued the dog in place with 3D foam tape.


Supplies:
Darkroom Door Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp

Crayons Eclectic Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, May 03, 2017

Hi stamping folk! It's Teresa here sharing some samples I made with the new Crayons Eclectic Stamp.

I have to admit, I went a little crazy! I guess this stamp just made me happy :) Once I set up my big 12 x 12 Memory Misti, it was just easy to stamp up a few of these crayons in a row so I had a few to colour in. I used Archival Jet Black ink so that I could use water based colouring media without having to worry about the ink smudging. I used Ecoline Brush Marker pens and a water brush to colour, but you could use Distress Markers, Distress Crayons or even the new Scribble Sticks.


For this first sample, I coloured everything using grey and black and then added a pop of colour. I stamped the Crayons onto a colourful piece gel printed paper I had in my stash, then cut out just the one crayon and glued it in place. The sentiment was stamped using the Alphabet Medley stamp set. 

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Alphabet Medley Rubber Stamp Set
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
Waterbrush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner


This next sample is certainly colourful. I chose a bright colour scheme and coloured each crayon. I stamped the sentiment, cut it into strips and mounted each one with black cardstock before adhering to the card front with foam mounting tape. Mounting it up actually allows the eye to peek underneath the words slightly so that the crayons are more visible.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Happy Quote Stamp
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
Waterbrush
Misti stamp positioner


This next sample is another that uses some gel printed paper from my stash. I used only part of the Stand Out Quote stamp.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Stand Out Quote Stamp
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
water brush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner


This next card uses a custom colour combination - I asked the intended recipient for her favourite colours and made the card with these in mind. I love that we can make someone feel special with a handmade card!

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door String Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
water brush
Splatter brush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner


The last card is my favourite - I love when I can use ALL my colours on a project! The spatters add a fun element, and this sentiment from the Wilderness Vol 2 set is perfect for it: 

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Wilderness Vol 2 Rubber Stamp Set

Dry with a heat gun.
3. Apply the same ink colours to the Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp (It is easier to use the Mini Distress Ink pads for this technique). Spritz with water and stamp over the top of the ink on the cardstock. Ink the edges of this piece. Stick down on the card front.
4. Apply the quote from the Brushed Sentiments Stap Set at the top of the card using Jet Black Archival Ink.

Mini Mason Jar Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Hi stampers, it is Godelieve Tijskens here, showing two cards I made with the new Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp. Loved creating with this stamp!
 


 
Although it is supposed to be a glass jar, on my first card I decided to do something else.
 
 
I started by colouring some smooth watercolorpaper using Distress Oxide Inks on my non-stick craft sheet. The colours I chose are Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade. I let the paper dry completely.
 
 
Next I sponged the flowers using a Layering Stencil, Distress Oxide Wilted Violets and a mini ink blending tool
 
The Mini Mason Jar was stamped twice onto this paper with black Archival ink. I also stamped a butterfly, using Distress Oxide Wilted Violet. Love this ink for stamping crisp images. The lid was stamped onto silver paper, using black ink again.

 
I adhered a piece of mulberry paper in a matching color to the cream card. I glued the jars in place and attached the cut out butterfly. Words from the Bright Blossoms Vol 1 set, stamped with black ink, complete the card.
 
Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp 
Darkroom Door Butterflies Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Bright Blossoms Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set
Distress Oxide Inkpads: Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet
Archival Inkpad: Jet Black
Tim Holtz Mini Layering Stencil THMS075
Mini Ink Blending Tool
 
 
The second card has a painting theme
 
 
I started by coloring a background again, using Distress Inkpads Shabby Shutters and Iced Spruce on a craft sheet. After the paper had dried, I used black Archival Ink to stamp the Mini Mason Jar and the paintbrush from the Artist set.

 
I used a white pencil to add some fine lines, so it looks like the brushes are placed inside the jar.
 
The edges of the Splatter Background stamp were inked with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce to stamp around the jar.  I also inked the Creativity Word Block stamp partly, to stamp next to the jar. The edges were inked with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce and a mini ink blending tool. I chose the words "one of a kind" from the Word Block Stamp, stamped with black ink to attach to the card and completed the card as shown.

Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp Projects

Darkroom Door - Friday, April 14, 2017

Hi there! It’s Rachel Greig here today sharing some ideas using the Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp! This stamp is so fun to use, especially as it can create a lot of different effects depending on what inks or paint you use. It’s also very versatile as it doesn’t always need to be drips, as you’ll see in my last card! 


Instructions: 

1.Stamp the Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp onto kraft card stock using Broken China Distress Oxide ink pad. The Distress Oxide ink reacts a little with kraft cardstock, giving a really cool milky effect. 

2. Stamp Create Art sentiment from the Artist stamp set underneath using Archival Jet Black ink pad. 

3. Mount stamped panel onto black card stock and then onto a folded light blue card.

The Paint Splats stamp also works really well to create long borders for art journals or scrapbook pages. You can stamp it along the top to create normal downward drips, however here I have stamped from the side just for something different. 


Instructions: 

1. Create a background in your art journal with paints and ink sprays. I’ve also used some stencils to create patterns. 

2. Make some marks with black and white paint pens - the more random you are the better! Just experiment and have fun, that’s the beauty of art journals. 

3. Stamp the Paint Drips down the side of the page using Archival Jet Black ink pad. This is an oil based ink pad and will dry over paint and ink sprays. 

4. Now your page is ready to add your journaling or other images and words. 


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp
Archival Ink Pad: Jet Black
Dylusions Paint: Calypso Teal, Bubblegum Pink
Dylusions Ink Spray: Calypso Teal, Bubblegum Pink
Stencils
Sharpie Paint Pen

This next card is a play on words, inspired by the funny short film Lava that you can watch here. (I love this film!) The Paint Drips also reminded me of a lava lamp, so I had fun making this card!


Instructions: 

1. Ink up the Paint Drips stamp using yellow and orange Distress Ink colours. Mist very lightly with water and stamp onto white cardstock. Repeat twice to cover the length of the card stock. 

2. Stamp the little heart from All Occasions Stamp Set a few times above some of the lava so it looks like little lava hearts are floating above. 

3. Stamp the sentiment using letters from Alphabet Medley Stamp Set with Archival Jet Black ink pad. 

4. Adhere stamped panel to a folded white card with foam adhesive to complete. 


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp
