Eat More Cake Quote Stamp Project Ideas

Darkroom Door - Monday, March 21, 2016

Hello! Today we are sharing lots of yummy projects using the Eat More Cake Quote Stamp

This first card is by Rachel Greig:


Instructions:
1. Emboss white cardstock with a Damask 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. 

Here's a fun card by Teresa Abajo where she uses a lamp post stamp as a cake holder! 


Instructions:
1. Stamp the quote onto white cardstock using Archival ink Jet Black. Cut the words into strips, and the word 'cake' into individual letters.
2. Stamp the lamp post from the Champs Elysee set in black ink, and fussy cut to create a pedestal for the cake. Apply strips of brightly coloured washi tape to scraps of white cardstock and cut to form layers of a cake. Adhere to card above pedestal.
3. Adhere strips of words to card above cake, and the individual letters below the cake.

Connie Mercer has created a delicious cupcake card:


Instructions:
1. Stamp the Polka Dots Background stamp on white cardstock using Sepia and Olive Archival Ink. Trim and shade with Sepia ink. Mount on cardstock.  
2. Mat Sweet Treats Photochips with cardstock and add a small Sweet Treats Montage image to the center of the Photochip.
3. Stamp the Eat More Cake Quote on white cardstock. Trim out into word strips and shade with ink. Add to card front. Add small twine around the top of the card. 

By now I'm sure we are all hungry for cake, whether it's our birthday or not! ;) Here are some more great ideas from Belinda Spencer: 


Instructions:
 1. Apply the Splatter Background Stamp to a piece of smooth cream coloured cardstock using Potting Soil Ranger Archival Ink. Using an ink blending tool, blend in Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet and Ground Espresso. Flick with water droplets and allow to dry. Stick down on a slightly larger piece of cream cardstock. Add to a kraft cardstock card base. 
2. Cut the cupcake photochip into two pieces and add to either side of the card. 
3. First ensure that the card front is completely dry from the previous steps. Then apply the quote stamp using Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink. Heat set with Ranger Embossing Powder in Super Fine Detail White. 
4. Apply the Dusty Concord ink to a balloon from the Party Time Rubber Stamp Set and the Ground Espresso ink to the string. Huff on the stamp with your breath and then stamp onto a scrap of cream cardstock. Add white crayon to the highlight on the balloon before rubbing in some Victorian Velvet ink. Fussy cut and add to the card front. Sprinkle over some silver sequins and glue in place.


Belinda has also created a card set using different colours:


1. Apply the Chevron Background Stamp onto a piece of smooth white cardstock using Rose Madder Ranger Archival Ink. Distress the edges and stick down on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock. Distress the edges of this piece too.
2. Stamp a doily from the Doilies Rubber Stamp Set on white cardstock using the same Rose Madder ink. Fussy cut the doily and layer on top of either a die cut white cardstock doily or a bought one. Add to the card front.
3. Wind some pink wire thread or twine across the card front on top of the doilies and staple in place. Add the card front to a pink cardstock card base.
4. Stamp the cupcake from the Sweet Treats Vol. 1 Rubber Stamp Set twice on smooth white cardstock. Stamp once with Rose Madder ink and again with Potting Soil Ranger Archival Ink. Fussy cut the pink icing from the pink cake and layer on top of the brown cake. Fussy cut the whole cupcake and add to the card using 3D foam. Sprinkle over some white sequin or chipboard stars. Use a white Posca Pen to flick white splats over the card front.
5. Apply Rose Madder ink to the Eat More Cake Quote Stamp. Apply the Potting Soil ink to the Splatter Background Stamp. Now gently place the Splatter Background Stamp face down onto the Quote Stamp. Carefully remove the Splatter Background Stamp and apply the quote stamp onto smooth white cardstock. The splatter design should have transferred to the quote stamp giving a lovely splattered effect on the quote. Fussy cut the individual letters of the word ‘cake’. Cut up the rest of the words as per the example. Stick ‘cake’ and the exclamation mark onto pink cardstock and fussy cut again. Add the quote to the card front.

Wander Quote Stamp Project Ideas

Darkroom Door - Friday, March 18, 2016

Hi there! Today we are sharing projects created with the Wander Quote Stamp

First we have a card by Rachel Greig:


Instructions:
1. Stamp Scratches Background Stamp onto beige cardstock using Archival Sepia Ink Pad. Distress the edges with a paper distresser. Ink around the edges of the cardstock using the Sepia ink pad. Adhere to a folded dark brown card. 
2. Stamp the World Map Background Stamp onto white cardstock with Archival Sepia Ink Pad. Die cut using the Tim Holtz Baroque Sizzix Die. Sponge Sepia ink around the edges. 
3. Stamp the Wander quote over the World Map using Archival Jet Black Ink Pad. Adhere stamped panel to card using foam adhesive. 
4. Attach two metal arrows (Tim Holtz idea-ology) to the card using Glossy Accents adhesive. 

Belinda Spencer has created two cards using lots of layers and texture! Here is the first one: 


Instructions:
1. Apply the World Map Background Stamp onto a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Add colour to the stamped image using watercolour paints. Rub in some Hickory Smoke Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the edges. Distress the edges and ink with Black Soot Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Layer on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock and distress the edges of that too.
2. Cut a piece of vellum to fit over the top of the World Map background. Apply the Wander Quote Stamp using Jet Black Staz On ink. Staz On works better on vellum as it dries quicker and gives a crisper image. Stick this piece down on top of the World Map making sure your tape will be hidden under the next layers.
3. Stamp the Polaroid Frame Stamp on cardstock using Watering Can Ranger Archival Ink. Apply some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. Stick down on top of one of the fabulous Darkroom Door Photochips and add to the card front.
4. Stamp a couple of cogs from the Steampunk Rubber Stamp Set on white cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink. Also stamp the Compass Eclectic Stamp. Cut all pieces out and cluster on the card front along with some frayed black thread.
5. Stamp the Find Your Way quote from the Discover Rubber Stamp Set also and add that to the card front. Add a sprinkling of sequins and a cute compass charm.


Here is Belinda's second card: 


Instructions:
1. Apply the Scratches Background Stamp on to a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Apply Hickory Smoke Tim Holtz Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. Flick some water droplet over the stamped image and allow to dry. Distress the edges and ink with Black Soot Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Stick down on a black cardstock card base.
2. Apply the Central Park Photo Stamp on smooth white cardstock. Colour by blending in various Distress Inks with an ink blending tool. I have chosen some lovely autumn/fall colours for this card using a combination of Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick and Ground Espresso Distress Inks. Flick water droplets over the image. Allow to dry then distress and ink the edges with the Black Soot ink. Stick down on a piece of black cardstock cut to size to create a frame. Distress the edges and add to the card front using 3D foam.
3. Stamp some leaves from the Leaves Rubber Stamp Set onto scrap cardstock. Ink using the same colours as the Central Park photo image. Slip under the edges of the top layer on the card.
4. Tear the Central Park image from the New York Montage sheet. Ink the edges using Antique Linen ink. Add to the card front with one of the stamped leaves as well as some metal leaf charms and frayed black embroidery thread.
5. Stamp the Wander quote on scrap white cardstock. Fussy cut the words and add to the card front. Add a sprinkling of sequins and a cute compass charm. 


Robyn Wood has created two stunning cards! 


There is always something about butterflies that give me a sense of exploration or wandering. They float so effortlessly on the breeze, darting here & there on the hunt for flowers. 

Instructions:
Stamp the Darkroom Door Wander Quote stamp onto the middle of a piece of white cardstock using black Archival ink. Stamp just the word ‘lost’ onto some white scrap cardstock and trim closely. Stamp the large butterfly from the Darkroom Door Wings stamp set onto the bottom left-hand side of the card stock so that parts of the wings are off the edge and the body is at an angle to the corner. Stamp a second small butterfly from the same set onto some white scrap cardstock. Colour both butterflies using Distress Markers and trim out the smaller one to add to the card. Edge the word ‘lost’ using the blue Distress Marker and mount over the same word on the quote using foam tape. Layer with blue and then add to a yellow cardfront.

Here is Robyn's second card: 


Instructions:
Select two Darkroom Door Photochip images for the card – one needs to have a bit of open space for the main part of the quote so that it will stand out well. The Prague set of Photochips depicting Charles Bridge are perfect for this technique, but there are a bunch of other suitable ones in the Darkroom Door collections. Consider where the wording might sit if you use different options or try using clear ink and white embossing powder for a totally different look.

Cover the word ‘lost’ on the Darkroom Door Wander Quote stamp with a post-it then ink the upper part of the stamp using Brilliance Graphite Black pigment ink. Remove the post-it and stamp onto the open part of the Photochip. Emboss with clear powder. Repeat this step on the second Photochip and stamp the word ‘lost’ in the top right hand corner. Layer the images onto blue cardstock and tie with ribbon. Attach to a black card front. Highlight the word ‘lost’ with a fine black pen to give it a bit of prominence.

Teresa Abajo also has a card to share with us using the Wander Quote Stamp:


Instructions:
1. Stamp the Torn Text Background stamp onto a kraft card using Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
2. Distress the edges of an 8 x 12.5cm piece of map and adhere to card.
3. Stamp the quote onto vellum using Versafine Ink Onyx Black, then emboss with clear embossing powder. Adhere this to the card front using Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher. (Place the staples under the embellishments so that they're not seen).
4. Roll up a 9 x 3 cm piece of map, tie with a piece of twine, then adhere to the bottom right hand corner of the card front.
5. Adhere a scrap of hessian to the top right hand corner of the card, then a Tim Holtz Bingo piece over a metal embellishment.

Being Creative Quote Stamp Project Ideas

Darkroom Door - Friday, March 11, 2016

Hi there stampers! Today we are sharing projects using the Being Creative Quote Stamp! Adding a little creative time into each day or week is the perfect recipe for good health. I think this quote stamp serves as a good reminder that even a few minutes a day can have a positive effect on your mood and wellbeing!

First we have some cards by Connie Mercer:


Instructions:
1. Stamp on white cardstock using the Wood Grain Background Stamp. Trim and ink for shading.
2. Stamp Paint Splats on the front in random spots. Use several different colors of ink.  
3. Stamp the Being Creative Quote on white cardstock in Blue ink. Cut the quote into word strips. Mount the word CREATIVE onto coloured cardstock. Mount stamped words over background and speckle with texture spray. 
4. Punch corners out of matching pattern paper. Mount on Black cardstock and then adhere to card front. 


Instructions:
1. Stamp on white cardstock using the Wood Grain Background Stamp. Trim and ink for shading. 
2. Stamp several Paint Splats on the front.  
3. Stamp the Patchwork Butterfly Collage Stamp on white cardstock and spray with several Dylusions ink sprays. Let dry.  Cut out and shade with ink.  
4. Stamp Being Creative Quote Stamp on white cardstock with green ink. Cut into word strips and shade with ink. Adhere Patchwork Butterfly and stamped words to background and then adhere to card front on the pattern paper. Speckle with texture spray.

Here's a card by Rachel Greig:


Instructions:
1. Stamp the Being Creative Quote Stamp onto white cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink pad. Randomly stamp some Paint Splats around the edge. Mount onto blue card. 
2. Create a background using Dylusions Ink Sprays. Stamp the large Paint Splat in the corners with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink. 
3. Mount onto white cardstock, then onto a folded white card to finish. 

Teresa Abajo has used an old paint brush to bring some dimension to her card:


Instructions:
1. Stamp the quote onto grid paper using Archival ink Jet Black. Trim this down, distress edges then mat with grey cardstock.
2. Stamp portions of the quote onto a scrap of cardstock that has been spread with a medium layer of crackle texture paste, and a scrap of calico fabric. Adhere these scraps in place onto the matted quote.
3. Secure an old dirty paintbrush to the left hand side with a couple of black cord stitches, and add a stitched cross to the right hand side.Adhere this to a 10 x 14.3cm piece of grid paper then onto a white card.

Robyn Wood shares two great cards:


Instructions:
1. Stamp a white card base using the Darkroom Door Grid Background stamp and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Sponge lightly with Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers inks and set aside. 
2. Stamp the Darkroom Door Stitched Threads Frame stamp onto some white cardstock using black Archival ink and tear around the edges. Stamp the corner that will end up as the lower, right-hand corner with a paint splat image from the Darkroom Door Paint Splats stamp set using Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink. Sponge with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink and attach to the card front at a slight angle. 
3. Stamp the Darkroom Door Being Creative Quote stamp onto some white cardstock using Brilliance Graphite Black pigment ink and emboss with clear powder. Trim the image so that each phrase & some of the words are separated. Attach the word ‘life’ over the paint splat using foam tape and add the rest of the wording flat over the frame stamp. I find that putting some of the wording at an angle adds a bit of interest.


Instructions:
1. Stamp a lime green card base using the Darkroom Door Dots Background stamp and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and set aside. 
2. Spray a piece of white cardstock with a mix of inks, I’ve used a shimmery, pale green and an orange. Allow to dry well. Stamp the piece with Darkroom Door Emulsion Frame and then Darkroom Door Being Creative Quote stamp using black Archival ink. Trim the layered image closely and distress the edges. Layer onto some bright orange card stock and distress the edges of that layer as well. 
3. Stamp some white cardstock with the Darkroom Door Paint Brushes Eclectic stamp, colour a couple of the brushes and trim closely. Layer the brushes onto the lower, right-hand side and tie the panel with twine before affixing to card front.

Instructions:
1. Adhere a strip of dictionary page to the left hand side of a 10 x 14.3cm piece of cream cardstock. Apply a thin layer of gesso over this, then spritz with Distress Spray Stain Frayed Burlap. Mat with grey cardstock then adhere to card.
2. Stamp the quote in the centre of the card front using Archival ink Jet Black.
3. Adhere a scrap of tea stained calico to the top left hand corner of the card, together with some twine and a red flower.

Belinda Spencer has created two different cards, one is fun and whimsical and the other a more love centered theme, showing how the Quote Stamp is versatile for different occasions! 


Instructions:
1. Apply the Torn Text Background Stamp onto a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size using Watering Can Ranger Archival Ink. Swipe over some white gesso using a make-up sponge.
2. Scribble a blue and a green Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen on a clean acrylic block. Add a little water with a soft paintbrush and wash the colours over the Torn Text background piece. Allow to dry. Distress the edges.
3. Add the stamped and painted background to a slightly larger piece of white cardstock. Distress the edges of the white cardstock. Stick down on top of the card base.
4. Apply Stamper's Big Brush Pens to the caravan, love heart outline and all other images. Huff on the stamp with your breath and then apply to smooth white cardstock. If you find your stamped image is a little too faint or not stamped in its entirety simply scribble the colours onto an acrylic block again and paint them over the top of the corresponding colours on your stamped image using a soft paintbrush. Allow to dry. Fussy cut all images and stick down on the background.
5. Apply the quote stamp onto white cardstock using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Add double sided tape to the back before fussy cutting the words. Stick down on the card front.


Instructions: 
1. Apply the Woodgrain Background Stamp onto smooth white cardstock using Rose Madder Ranger Archival Ink. Rub in some Pumice Stone Tim Holtz Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. Flick some water droplets over the top and allow to dry. Distress the edges and add to a white cardstock card base.
2. Stamp the gorgeous Winter Tree Photo Stamp onto white cardstock using Watering Can Ranger Archival Ink. Rub in Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks.
3. Apply the Regal Frame onto white cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink. Heat set with Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder to create a beautiful vintage style gold frame. Cut out the centre and fussy cut the exterior. Cut the Winter Tree image to fit and place the frame over the top. Add to the Woodgrain Background Stamp using 3D foam.
4. Apply the Postcards Texture Stamp to a scrap of white cardstock using Rose Madder ink. Stamp a heart outline from the Hearts Rubber Stamp Set over the top using Watering Can Archival Ink. Rub in a little Pumice Stone ink, flick with water, dry and cut out. Stick down on the upper right of the gold frame.
5. Tear an image from the Love Letters Montage. Ink with Pumice Stone and add to the stamped heart. Stamp a smaller outline heart, fussy cut and layer over the montage image.
6. Apply the Follow Your Heart Quote Stamp onto white cardstock using the embossing ink. Heat set with the same gold embossing powder, fussy cut and add to the card. Sprinkle a few vintage gold sequins across the card for a finishing touch.


Robyn Wood has created two bright coloured cards using a different type of resist technique using clear embossing. Did you know that you aren’t limited to just pigment ink for embossing? Virtually anything wet can be embossed and that includes products like Wink of Stella brush pens. Simply draw your image and quickly sprinkle with embossing powder while the ink is still wet. If you aren’t quite happy with the embossing result first time around, redraw the image and repeat. I found that the clear glitter colour gives a beautiful raised effect that will resist sponging and watercolour and has the added bonus of a touch of sparkle!


Instructions:
Draw and emboss two hearts using the technique described above onto white cardstock. Overstamp the hearts with the Darkroom Door Follow Your Heart Quote stamp using black Archival ink. Sponge using Picked Raspberry Distress ink and tie one end with ribbon. Layer with white and affix to a bright pink card base. Add a couple of adhesive pearls to accent. 


Instructions:
Draw and emboss two hearts using the technique described above using smooth watercolour cardstock. Overstamp the hearts with the Darkroom Door Follow Your Heart Quote stamp using black Archival ink. Go over the cardstock with a wash of watercolour and allow to dry well. Try one or two colours to give different watercolour effects. Add some ribbons and overlay the bottom righthand corner with two Darkroom Door Love Letters Montage images. Layer with light green and attach to a bright pink card base.

Hello! Today we have some projects using the Stamp Quote Stamp! Belinda Spencer has created a pocket scrapbook page using the Stamp Quote Stamp as the starting point, then scrapbooking about her love of craft! 


This is a 6" x 4" pocket  insert. Created with the Woodgrain Background Stamp, Everyday Life and Stitched Christmas Rubber Stamps, and of course the Stamp Quote Stamp in the centre. The Words 'The Story' and 'Daily Life' are from the Everyday Life Stamp Set. The borders were created using the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set. See the arrows? They're also from the Everyday Life Stamp Set.  

Here is the full scrapbook page:


As you can see, Belinda has used a LOT of Darkroom Door stamps on this page! The full supplies list can be found at the bottom of this blog post. 

Robyn Wood has created a fun and vibrant card using the Stamp Quote Stamp. Perfect for sending to a fellow stamper! 


Stamp quote image using Brilliance Graphite Black pigment ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  Trim so that there is an approx. 0.5cm space all around. Select two colours to layer over the base card front.Try to make them a happy, fun combination – the brighter the better! Trim two rectangle shapes approx. 8.5cm x 11.5cm. Layer the pieces so that they are at different angles and attach to card front. Add a shaped paperclip.
