Bunting Border Stamp Projects

Darkroom Door - Thursday, November 10, 2016

Hello stamping friends! It's Teresa Abajo here to share a couple of projects I made using the new Bunting Border Stamp.

The first thing I need to say is that these stamps are BIIIIG! They're big enough to go across an entire 12" x 12" page, so that's super handy for scrapbookers and us art journalers. There's a dedicated stamping block available too, so they're as easy to use as any smaller stamp.

My first project is an art journal page:

I stamped the bunting across my A4 page three times, then with the help of three large Post-It Notes, I masked off each pennant and stamped a Texture stamp pattern into it. The page was then coloured with watered down Dylusions paints:

I decided to add some words, so I stamped the Happy Quote stamp onto a blank page from an old book. I glued these on, then decided to drag out the sewing machine and add some stitching. I then found some "-ing" words in the text of the book, cut them out and stuck them on to the bottom left hand corner of the page:

I traced around the page and each pennant with a water soluble graphite pencil, painted over this with an Aquash brush, and added some graphite spatters to the page to complete it.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Bunting Border Stamp
Darkroom Door Stamping Block 315 x 65

Archival ink Jet Black
Dylusions Paint: Virbrant Turquiose, Bubblegum Pink, Crushed Grape, London Blue, Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest, Tangerine Dream
Aquash brush medium
General's Sketch & Wash pencil

My next project makes use of the large size of this stamp to create an extra large card - it measures 6" x 12" when folded. I often make these large cards for birthdays etc when the card is coming from a large group of people.

I folded a 12" x 12" piece of cream cardstock in half, then trimmed 1/8 inch off each side of some 12" x 12" patterned paper. I glued these together along the front near the spine, then stamped the Bunting border onto some coordinating patterned paper three times. I fussy cut each of these strips out, then stuck them to the card front and carefully wrapping each strip around the back of the card.

I then decorated the front with little roses and pearls. I stamped and gold embossed the Mesh Texture stamp, and added the 'enjoy'  word and butterfly to the bottom right hand corner.
