Full Bloom Photochips

Darkroom Door - Saturday, April 05, 2008

Here's a few quick cards that can be made with the Full Bloom Photochips, Full Bloom Wordstrips and quotes and words from the Full Bloom Vol 2 Rubber Stamps. This first card is super quick and simple. Just grab some cardstock that is the same colour (or similar) to the petals on the flower, some ribbon, and  a little Wordstrip word. This same design can be repeated with all 6 Photochip images in the packet, just alternate the colour of the cardstock according to what colour the flower is. When made as a complete set it really looks like a rainbow! But here's just one for now:




This card is similar, but I have inked the flower with Antique Linen Distress Ink to give it a slightly warmer tone, and have scratched the edges. The tiny tags have been stamped with the tiny words from the Full Bloom Vol 2 stamp set.




Lastly, for this card I have stamped directly onto the Photochip itself. The Photochips stamp beautifully, and can be heat set if you're using a longer drying ink. I used Archival Grape for this card.



Thanks for stopping by today!



Stamp Camp Photochip Challenge!

Darkroom Door - Monday, March 31, 2008

I've just spent a fun weekend in Staveley, New Zealand teaching at the 2bStamping Stamp Camp! On the Friday night all the ladies were given a challenge pack from Doreen (owner of 2bStamping) which included a Venetian Photochip image, some Venetian Wordstrips, and then a selection of black and white card stock and ribbons. Everyone was challenged to create a card of some sort using anything from the challenge pack, and the card had to remain black and white. There was a flurry of activity and ideas being thrown around as the challenge was being done! I was so impressed with all the ideas and creations, and especially loved looking at all the different ways they used the Photochips! There were lots of prizes and stamps being given away too - which I hope you all enjoy!


The ladies were happy to share their art here on the blog too, so please enjoy a selection of these wonderful cards from the 2bStamping Stamp Camp Challenge:





Aren't they wonderful cards!! Such a great assortment of ideas! Thank you to everyone for sharing your creativity and taking part in the challenge, and for also making my weekend so memorable. I had a fabulous time, and hope to see you all again someday!

Here's a couple of group shots of everyone from the camp:



Thanks to each and everyone of you for a great weekend!
