Heart Stencil Set Ideas

Darkroom Door - Friday, July 05, 2019

Hi there! We have lot of project ideas to share with you today using the new Heart Stencil Set! This stencil set consists of a heart shape stencil with the matching solid shape that can be used as a mask. You can sponge or draw inside the heart or around the mask shape to create some interesting effects.  

 

Here’s a couple of card ideas from Godelieve Tijskens: 


In this first card Godelieve has sponged ink through the stencil and stamped over the top with the Thank You Small Stamp. You can read the full tutorial here



In this second card of Godelieve’s, she has sponged ink in the stencil then stitched around the edge! What a great idea! See more here.  



For this card, Godelieve used the heart mask by placing it on white cardstock and sponging ink around the edges. Isn’t it beautiful!! See how this card was created here.   


Suzz Czosek has also been busy with this stencil set and has lots of ideas to share! Take a look: 


The Heart Stencil is a perfect backdrop for the Part Of You Quote Stamp. See how the stencil fits perfectly over the ‘heart of you’ words? 


For this card Suzz sponged inside the Heart Stencil and kept the stencil in place to use it to mask the outside area so when she stamped the Robin Eclectic Stamp, it stayed within the heart. 


This is a clever play on words, highlighting the word ART in the heart. Suzz has done this in different ways for the next few cards: 




This next card is similar in design, but now uses the Love Word Block Stamp as a highlight within the heart Stencil. As you can see, it can be paired up with lots of different stamps and stencils! 

 

You can read all about Suzz’s cards on her blog here.  


I hope you’ve enjoyed these ideas using the Heart Stencil Set! If you’d like to see more ideas using our Small Stencil Sets, please check out the Stencils Pinterest Board. You can also find all of our Stencils here.

Gerberas Photo Stamp Ideas

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, July 03, 2019

Hi there! We have recently released a new series of Photo Stamps! Today we’d like to share some ideas and cards using the Gerberas Photo Stamp

 

As you can see, this is a beautifully detailed stamp which will look lovely stamped in different inks and colours. If you want the most details out of the stamp, we recommend stamping with permanent waterproof ink, such as Archival Ink (oil based). The image below shows the Gerberas stamped with Plum Archival Ink onto cream card stock. 


You can also create some beautiful watercolour effects with this stamp if you use a water-based ink pad, such as Distress Inks. In the image above, the Gerberas were stamped with Distress Oxide ink pads and then a water brush was used to move the inks around slightly to create a watercolour effect. It is an easy technique that produces some stunning results! Of course you can try lots of different colours too! 

Here’s a card by Rachel Greig using that watercolour technique: 


The other stamps used on this card include the Splatter and Marbling Background Stamps, Butterflies Stamp Set and a quote from the Art De Fleur Vol 2 Stamp Set

Here are a couple of cards by Godelieve Tijskens: 


This first card Godelieve stamped the Gerberas onto Kraft cardstock and coloured them in using coloured pencils. It’s a stunning effect! You can read the full tutorial here



In this card, Godelieve stamped the Gerberas with Wendy Vecchi ink pads and coloured in with Distress Oxide Inks. Read the full tutorial here.  


I hope you’ve enjoyed these ideas! If you’d like to see more ideas using Photo Stamps, please check out the Photo Stamps Pinterest Board. You can also find all of our Photo Stamps here.

Large Carved Leaves Stencil Ideas

Darkroom Door - Monday, July 01, 2019

Hi there! Today we would like to share a few ideas using the Large Carved Leaves Stencil



This stencil was designed by Godelieve Tijskens, aka StampingMathilda. It was first released as a set of stamps and now we have it in a Small Stencil and a Large Stencil. The small stencil is great for cards and smaller projects, while the Large Stencil is perfect for art journal pages and larger cards and projects. 

Here’s a few ideas showing the Large Stencil in use: 


This art journal page by Rachel Greig shows how to use the stencil with Texture Paste. You can create some really grungy effects! Once the texture paste had dried, it was painted over with Dina Wakley Media paint and Glazing Medium


You can also dab embossing ink through the stencil and heat emboss with embossing powders, like Rachel has done here. It creates a really glossy raised effect and stands out on the page! 


These cards by Godelieve Tijskens show how you can sponge ink through the stencil and stamp through the stencil to create patterns. See details on Godelieve’s blog here.  




This card by Anneke De Clerck shows how it can be used as a subtle image in the background of a card. See more details on this project here.  


These are just a few ideas! If you’d like to see more stencil projects, check out our Stencil Pinterest board!  


You can also see some ideas using the Small Carved Leaves stencil here.

Card making with the Oval Stencil Set

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Hi Stampers! It is Godelieve Tijskens here, sharing some cards I made with the Oval Stencil Set. I love that this stencil comes as a set and you can use both parts or just one part of the stencil. Here’s a look at the 4 cards I have created: 



Let’s take a closer look at each card and how I created them. 


Instructions:

1. On this card I used the stencil set as stamps to create a coloured background. I inked the stencils with Distress Oxide inks using mini ink blending tools, then misted water and pressed the stencils onto the smooth watercolour paper. 


2. Rusty Hinge and Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide Inks were used on the oval mask, Chipped Saphhire and Weathered Wood on the stencil.
3. The same inks were used to stamp the Grid texture over the oval and the Swirls Texture around the oval.
4. The Butterfly was stamped with Weathered Wood and cut out.
5. The small flower is from an early, but timeless stamp set:  Full Bloom Vol 2.  I stamped it with Rusty Hinge.  
6. I have cut the flowers out, used a stylus to shape them and glued an enamel dot to the center.
7. The saying is from the Simple Sayings Vol 2 set, stamped with Chipped Sapphire and cut out.
8. The pieces were glued in place, and the paper distresser was used on the edges of the panel before I glued it onto a white folded card.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Small Stencil: Oval Set
Darkroom Door Texture Stamps: Grid, Swirls
Darkroom Door Eclectic Stamp: Butterfly Note
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Simple Sayings Vol 2, Full Bloom Vol 2
Distress Oxide Inkpads: Brushed Corduroy, Rusty Hinge, Weathered Wood, Chipped Sapphire
Tonic Paper Distresser
Echo Park Enamel Dots
Mini Ink Blending Tools

Next I made two cards, using the same technique, but different stamps and colours. 


Instructions:

1. To stamp the Roses Photo Stamp in an oval shape, I have covered the stamp with the Oval stencil to ink it up with Archival Ink Vibrant Fuchsia.


2. This way the stamped image gets a soft edge.
3. The same Archival Ink was used for the Torn Text Background stamp.  


4. I covered the stamped roses with the oval mask and used tape on the 4 corners of the cardstock to keep it in place in the Misti, before I stamped the background. Love how the soft edge and the halo work as a frame around the roses. 
5. The cardstock was cut to size, the corners rounded and the edges inked with Archival Ink Garden Patina.
6. I chose a stamp from the Hearts stamp set, stamped it with Garden Patina and cut it out.  
7. Words are from the Hearts and Simple Sayings Vol 1 stamp set, also stamped with Garden Patina, and cut out.
8. I glued the cut out pieces in place and attached an enamel dot to the heart.
9. The panel was adhered to a white folded card.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Small Stencil: Oval Set
Darkroom Door Photo Stamp: Roses

Darkroom Door Background Stamp: Torn Text

Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Hearts, Simple Sayings Vol 1 
Archival Inkpads: Vibrant Fuchsia, Garden Patina
Echo Park Enamel Dots


On the second card I used the Country Cottage Photo Stamp and the Spanish Tiles Background stamp with Archival Ink Tree Branch. The words are from the Home Sweet Home stamp set. This panel was glued onto a kraft folded card.

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Small Stencil: Oval Set
Darkroom Door Photo Stamp: Country Cottage
Darkroom Door Background Stamp: Spanish Tiles
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Home Sweet Home
Archival Inkpad: Tree Branch

Lastly I have made a matching card and bookmark.


Instructions:

1. On a 15 x 15cm piece of smooth watercolor paper I sponged with Distress Oxide Scattered Straw to get a light background.


2. I used the Oval stencil with several Distress Oxide inkpads and Texture stamps to sponge and to stamp, layer after layer.
3. I also used the Abstract Triangles background stamp. 
4. When I was happy with the result the paper was cut to card size.   
5. I stamped the Happy quote with black Archival ink and glued the panel onto a white folded card.

The left over piece was perfect for a bookmark.  A stamp from the Art De Fleur Vol 1 set was used here with black Archival ink.
I rounded the corners and glued the stamped piece onto white cardstock. To finish off the bookmark I used ribbon and twine.

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Small Stencil: Oval Set
Distress Oxide Inkpads: Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade, Broken China, Worn lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Wild Honey, Tattered Rose
Darkroom Door Texture Stamps: Chevron, Weathered Stripes, Checkered, Circles, Triangles, Dots
Darkroom Door Background Stamp: Abstract Triangles
Darkroom Door Quote Stamp: Happy

Dots Wrapped Journal Cover

Darkroom Door - Monday, May 20, 2019

Hi, it’s Anneke De Clerck here today to share a wrapped journal I made featuring the Large Dots Stencil. I’ve applied modeling paste through the stencil to decorate the cover of my journal. I love how the 3D dots turned out after adding a few layers of paint and glaze.



Instructions
1. Die cut a journal cover out of 300 gsm watercolour paper using the Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal die. After running the die + paper through your die cutting machine you end up with a ready-made cover, fold marks and binding holes included.
2. Add a coat of gesso to both sides of the cover. 
3. Put the Large Stencil – Dots on top of the cover and apply modeling paste through the stencil with a palette knife. Avoid the parts where the fold marks are. Let dry. 


4. Paint the cover with shades of pink and orange paint using a flat brush.
5. Mix Golden Fluid Acrylics Paynes Gray with Golden Glazing Liquid (equal parts) and add a layer of that glaze on top of the paint. Wait a few minutes and wipe away most of the glaze with baby wipes. Repeat this step using white paint. The glazing makes the dots stand out more because the blue and white paint gets into the nooks and crannies of the modeling paste.
6. Stamp on the areas where the fold marks are with parts of the Inky Script Background Stamp and StazOn Ink Cherry Pink. Repeat randomly on the dots.
7. Paint the reverse side of the cover with a few layers of pink paint. 


8. Stamp the tulip twice on watercolour paper and cut out. Color with Distress Ink Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry using a water brush and adhere to the front cover.


9. For the inserts cut 20 pages out of mixed media paper, size 19.5 x 11 cm. Fold each page in half and nested 5 pages into each other to make 4 signatures.


10. The binding can be done in different ways. I used pink elastic cord that I’ve woven through the holes. I ended up with 4 strips of elastic cord at the inside to hold the inserts in place.


11. This is how the binding looks like along the spine.


12. Wrap pink elastic cord around the book to close it. Attach a pompon to the cord with a jump ring.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Large Stencil: Dots
Darkroom Door Inky Script Background Stamp
Darkroom Door Full Bloom Vol 1 Stamp Set
Distress Inks: Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry
Archival Ink: Jet Black
StazOn Ink: Cherry Pink
Golden: Modeling Paste
Golden: Acrylic Glazing Liquid
Golden Fluid Acrylics: Paynes Gray, Titanium White
Dina Wakley Media Paint: Blushing, Fuchsia
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics: Pixie Dust
Talens Amsterdam Acrylics: Persian Rose
Dylusions Paint: Tangerine Dream
Sizzix: Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal Die

Carved Flowers Large Stencil Journal Pages

Darkroom Door - Friday, May 17, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Robyn Wood with you today sharing some projects using the new Carved Flowers Large Stencil. The Carved Flowers stamp set is one of my favourites, so it is wonderful to see the shapes reproduced as a stencil. I think this one will get a lot of use in my art journals so let’s have a look at a couple of my ideas for using it:



I enjoy the play of contrast with stark black images on busy, colourful art journal backgrounds. The large Carved Flowers stencil makes a page come together so easily and for this project I have started with a blue toned pre-done page in a Dylusions Dyalog Insert Book.

Instructions:
1. Add some colour to the background using a Gel Press and the large Crackle stencil with acrylic paints in red, orange & yellow.
2. Cover the background with a watery wash of pale blue paint to give a translucent layer of colour. 
3. Stencil the spread with two stems from the large Carved Flowers stencil and black paint.
4. Add three patches of black to the edges of the spread, while the paint is still wet carve some patterns into the paint using a wooden skewer. Allow to dry well.
5. Sketch over the stencilled flowers using a white gel pen. Make the lines scratchy and imperfect.
6.  To finish the page, add a word from the Wilderness Word Block Stamp which has been stamped onto white card using black Archival ink.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Carved Flowers Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Crackle Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Wilderness Word Block Stamp
Archival ink: Jet Black
Gel Plate
Brayer
Acrylic paint in red, yellow, orange, blue & black
White gel pen


The large Carved Flowers stencil also looks fantastic stencilled in flower colours. This time I’ve created a background on a canvas page in the Dina Wakley’s Media journal by stencilling the Journey stencil with texture paste and giving it some colour with the new & totally delicious Distress Oxide spray inks.

Instructions:
1. Stencil parts of the page with texture paste using Journey stencil. Smudge some of the page with extra texture page for a grungy effect. Allow to dry well.
2. Spray page with a little water and then Distress Oxide spray inks. The water will allow the inks to move on the page. An extra spritz to parts of the page will bring out the ‘oxide’ effect. Allow to dry well.
3. Carefully stencil a single flower over one side of the page using large Carved Flower stencil and acrylic paint. The flower will be stencilled right over the top of the textured surface.
4. Enhance one of the words from the background to act as a page feature by sketching around it with a black Stabilo pencil.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Carved Flowers Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Journey Medium Stencil
Distress Oxide spray inks: Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans
Acrylic paint in pink, yellow & green
Black Stabilo pencil
Texture paste


There is something about the quote I have used on this page that just makes me smile! It pairs beautifully with the happy looking flower. Once again, I have used the Dina Wakley Media journal, this time onto watercolour paper.

Instructions:
1. Stencil random pattern over the page using the Gel Plate and the Circles stencil with warm colours of acrylic paint (yellow, orange, red, pink).
2. Stencil further layers of pattern using Polka Dots and Mesh stencils, either by traditional sponging or the Gel Plate. Use similar colours of acrylic paint. The aim is to make the background messy but with layers of pattern distinct.
3. Choose an area of the page for the Carved Flowers stencil and trace the large open flower using a fine black permanent pen. The image will look best if slightly overhanging the edge of the page.
4. Paint out the background around the stencilled shape using black paint.
5. Stencil a few random diamond shapes in the top, left hand corner of the page using large Diamonds stencil and gesso. Allow to dry.
6. Add some sketchy lines around the shapes using a white gel pen.
7. Add extra diamonds to the bottom, right hand corner using the Diamonds stencil and white gel pen. Add a few doodled lines to embellish.
8. Stamp Happy quote onto white card using black Archival ink and fussy cut closely around wording.
9. Add words to page, slightly overlapping flower stem. Give the page a little personality by tilting the words slightly.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Carved Flowers Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Diamonds Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Circles Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Polka Dots Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Mesh Large Stencil
Darkroom Door Happy Quote Stamp
Archival ink: Jet Black
Black, permanent pen
Gel Plate
Brayer
Acrylic paint in red, pink, yellow, orange & black
White gesso 
White gel pen

I hope you enjoy some creative play recreating these projects, until next time!

Gel Printing with Large Dots Stencil

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Hi, it’s Anneke De Clerck here with you today to share a book and a card I made with the new Large Dots Stencil. I’m very happy with my collection of large Darkroom Door stencils. Because of their size the stencils are perfect to use on larger projects such as gel prints, art journal pages and book covers but as you can see below the prints look nice on cards as well.



My first project is a 20 x 20 cm spiral bound book I made. I decorated the covers with gel prints. Here is a mini tutorial on how to create those gel prints.


1. Start by applying stripes of fuchsia, pink and green paint to a large gel printing plate with a brayer. Put the Large Circles Stencil on top and pull a few prints for future use. What remains on the plate after removing the stencil is what we need. 


2. When this first layer is touch dry, add stripes of blue, lime and pink paint to the gel printing plate with a brayer.  Clean the brayer in between by rolling it over white paper. That paper will be used to decorate the reverse of the covers.


3. Put the Large Dots Stencil on top of the paint on the gel print and cover with a sheet of paper. Roll over the paper with a brayer to make stencil marks into the paint.


4. Remove the stencil and pull a print and a ghost print. The first print will be used on the book. Repeat all steps to make a second/similar print.


5. For the front and back cover cut two 20 x 20 cm pieces out of cardboard. Adhere the gel prints to the front of the covers and the paper with leftover paint to the reverse using double-sided tape, trim to size. Cover the grey edges of the cardboard with white paint.

6. For the inside pages cut 25 sheets of mixed media paper, size 20 x20 cm.


7. Decorate the front cover by stamping randomly with the Inky Script Background Stamp and the Grid Texture Stamp using Distress Oxide Ink Twisted Citron and Broken China. 

Put the Large Carved Flowers Stencil on top of the front cover and sponge through it with white paint. Repeat with green, lime, pink and fuchsia paint. Because I worked on a busy background and wanted the colors to be vivid I did the stencilling with white paint first. This white layer makes a perfect undercoat for the colors. 


8. Make holes into the covers and inside pages using the Zutter Bind-it-All.

9. Bind the book by adding white wire. 

10. Decorate with a piece of white cord and 2 pompons.

Here’s a card also using the Large Dots Stencil: 


Instructions: 
1. Apply lime and fuchsia paint randomly to a sheet of paper using a brayer.  Cut a 10.5 x 20 cm card panel out of that paper to use as a background for the card.

2. Sponge a big leaf on top using the Large Carved Leaves Stencil and lime paint.

3. Stamp text randomly using StazOn Ink Cherry Pink.

4. Sponge dots randomly using the Large Dots Stencil and white paint.

5. Put the Large Dots Stencil on top of white paper. Sponge paint through it to create pink dots. Overstamp with a lady from the 1920s Chic Stamp Set. Stamp the lady on white paper as well. Apply the paper piecing technique to add a dotted dress and bag to the black and white print. Adhere to the card.


6. Stamp a birthday wish from the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stamps Set using Archival Ink Jet Black. Highlight the wish by adding black thread and a button. 

7. Adhere the panel to a tall double card.

Chicken Wire Gift Card Set

Darkroom Door - Monday, May 13, 2019

Hi, it’s Belinda Spencer here today to share a sweet set of gift cards featuring the fabulous new Chicken Wire Texture Stamp.



The Texture Stamps are great to use as a background feature for smaller gift cards! Although I’m using the Chicken Wire Texture Stamp for all of these cards, you could use any of the Texture Stamps in the same way! 


Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of yellow cardstock measuring 10.5cm x 17cm. Fold in half to form the card base.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 10cm x 8cm. Place into a stamp positioning tool and secure with the magnets provided.

3. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the stamp and stamp onto the card front in the stamping platform.

4. Use the same black ink to stamp the outline heart from the Hearts Rubber Stamp Set on an extra piece of smooth white cardstock. Fussy cut the heart and place on top of the card front in the stamp positioning tool. Apply the jet black ink to the chicken wire stamp again and gently stamp onto the heart. Remove the card front and the heart from the tool. Add the heart to the card front using 3D foam making sure the chicken wire image lines up. Stick down on the card base.

5. Stamp some leaves from the Fine Leaves Rubber Stamp Set and a flower from the Carved Flowers Rubber Stamp Set onto the extra cardstock. Use watercolour paints or inks to add some colour. Dry with a heat gun and then fussy cut. Add to the card front. Stamp the sentiment, fussy cut and add that to the card front also using 3D foam.

I used exactly the same technique for each of the cards in this set. Take a look at these examples:




Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Chicken Wire Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Robin Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Hearts Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Carved Flowers Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Gardening Vol. 2 Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Brushed Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set

Peeled Paint Texture Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Saturday, May 11, 2019

Hi, it’s Belinda Spencer here today to share a sweet set of cards featuring the fabulous new Peeled Paint Texture Stamp. I used heat embossing to add extra gorgeous texture to these cards.




Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of black cardstock measuring 12.5cm x 19cm. Fold in half to form the card base.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 12cm x 9cm. Apply the Gazette Background Stamp to this piece using Rose Madder Archival Ink. Stick down on the card base.

3. Create some gel press backgrounds using acrylic paints or grab some from your stash (You could also use some patterned paper or cardstock) Cut a piece measuring 8cm x 11cm. Apply the Peeled Paint Texture Stamp to this piece using embossing ink. Heat set using fine white detail embossing powder. Stick this piece down on the card front.

4. On some extra matching gel press backgrounds, stamp a flower from the Fine Flowers Stamp Set, a butterfly from the Butterflies Stamp Set as well as some stars and the sentiment. Fussy cut each stamped image. Add to the card front using some 3D foam under the flower and the sentiment.


I used exactly the same technique for each of the cards in this set. Take a look at these examples:



Here’s a slightly different card, still using an embossing technique, but different colours and theme. 


Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock measuring 11.5cm x 19cm. Fold in half to form the card base.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 11cm x 9cm. Apply the Woodgrain Background Stamp to this piece using Watering Can Archival Ink. Use an ink blending tool to apply Hickory Smoke Distress Ink around the edges. Stick down on the card base.

(You could also use some patterned paper or cardstock) Apply the Peeled Paint Texture Stamp twice to this piece using embossing ink. Tear around the stamped images and layer them on the card front. Roll the edges of these pieces slightly to add more dimension.

4. On some extra matching gel press background, stamp two butterflies from the Butterflies Stamp Set using the Watering Can ink. Fussy cut the butterflies and add to the card front along with a twine circle. Stamp the sentiment on smooth white cardstock using the Watering Can ink. Fussy cut and add to the card using 3D foam.
