Darkroom Door & Karen Burniston Blog Hop

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, July 24, 2018
Hello! Welcome to the Darkroom Door & Karen Burniston Blog hop! 

We are so excited that you are joining us in what will be a very creative and inspirational blog hop! 20 artists have joined together to bring you projects using Darkroom Door stamps and Karen Burniston metal dies. Over the course of the hop, you will see so many different ways to combine these awesome products together. There'll be videos and step by step tutorials so you can create the projects yourself too!  

This is the first stop on the blog hop. At the bottom of this post you will see the entire list of participating artists. All of the posts are now live, so you can now hop from blog to blog to see all of the creative projects in your own time. Be sure to leave comments along the way, as you'll go in the draw to win a prize from either Darkroom Door or Karen Burniston! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win! 

If you ever lose your way along the hop or need to find which artist is next, please come back here to see the list of blogs and the direct links. 

So let's share our first project! This is a tag book by Rachel Greig

This project uses the #1023 Tag Book Pop Up die along with the Fine Butterflies and Fine Flowers Vol 2 stamp sets and Torn Text Background Stamp

The Tag Book Pop Up Die is such a fun die to use to create fun interactive cards! I thought it would be great to show you how to create it too, so you can watch the full step by step tutorial here in this video. 


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Fine Butterflies, Fine Flowers Vol 1, Orchids
Darkroom Door Background Stamp: Torn Text
Darkroom Door Stamping Blocks
Distress Oxide Ink Pads: Broken China, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage, Spiced Marmalade
