Flowers Filmstrip Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Thursday, February 21, 2019

Hi there! Suzz Czosek here. I am here today to share a few cards created using the new Flowers Filmstrip Stamp. I had fun playing around with a few different ideas with the filmstrip. I think these new filmstrip stamps are going to be alot of fun to create with! 

First up is a camera inspired card. Why not pair up the Capture Life Stamp Set

1. Stamp Flowers Filmstrip Stamp 2 times on white cardstock using black archival ink. 
2. Colour the images with watercolor pencils and waterbrush. (Use your favorite coloring medium) 
3. Let dry. Cut out the filmstrip.  
4. Cover the entire strips with versamark watermark ink.  
5. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Repeat to apply two coats. 
6. Stamp the sentiment from the Capture Life Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black archival ink. 
7. Heat emboss sentiment with clear embossing powder. 
8. Assemble the card.

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Filmstrip Stamps: Flowers
Darkroom Door Rubber Stamp Set: Capture Life
Ranger Archival Ink: Jet Black
Clear Embossing Powder
Versamark Watermark Ink
Watercolor pencils

A quick and easy card with a great pop with the frame from the filmstrips! 

Next up is a card with multiple filmstrips and a soft color scheme. 

1. Cut out background cardstock. (4 3/4" x 6 3/4") . 
2. Stamp script from Correspondence Stamp Set with black ink over background randomly. 
3. Stamp filmstrip stamp four times using Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black on white cardstock. 
4. Color with a hint of yellow and shadow with gray. I used my watercolor pencils. Soften with waterbrush. 
5. Stamp sentiment from the Sympathy Sentiments Stamp using black archival ink on white cardstock. 
6. Cut out sentiment and film strips.  
7. Layer filmstrips over stamped background. Cut off edges of filmstrip to fit background. 
8. Assemble Card. 

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Filmstrip Stamps: Flowers
Darkroom Door Stamp Set: Correspondence
Darkroom Door Sentiments Stamp: Sympathy
Ranger Archival Ink: Jet Black 
Watercolour Pencils 

I tried this first with just black and white and found it quite striking. I think the filmstrips look beautiful with either effect. 

For my last card I wanted to create a background of the filmstrips.  

1. Stamp the Flowers Filmstrip Stamp four times using Ranger Archival Potting Soil on white cardstock. 
2. Stamp the carnation flower from the Garden Greetings Stamp Set three times using Ranger Archival Potting Soil on white cardstock. 
3. Color the images with pink highlights using your favorite coloring medium. 
4. Stamp the sentiment from Bright Blossoms Vol 2 stamp set on a piece of vellum. (I painted behind the sentiment with a whitewash to help make the sentiment pop) 
5. Stamp the Coffee Stain Eclectic Stamp randomly with a mix of light pink and brown dye ink. 
6. After I finished stamping I cut the strips and attached them on the card base. 
7. I finished with a whitewash over the surface of all the stamped pieces to soften the effect. 
8. I cut the carnation out into multiple pieces and layered them to give a dimensional effect. 

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Filmstrips Stamp: Flowers
Darkroom Door Stamp Set: Garden Greetings, Bright Blossoms Vol 2 
Darkroom Door Eclectic Stamp: Coffee Stain
Ranger Archival Ink: Potting Soil, Rose Madder
Distress Ink: Frayed Burlap 

I hope you have gotten a little inspiration along the way!
