Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Thursday, May 09, 2019

Hi, it’s Anneke De Clerck here today to share with you a few cards I made with the new Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp. To create my samples I didn’t go for the traditional colours of fallen leaves. In my opinion the print looks fabulous when stamped in black on white paper. This black and white design matches my colourful style perfectly. But I also used colourful paint to ink up the stamp and I love that outcome too.



Instructions
1. To create the background, paint stripes on a card panel with lime, turquoise, yellow and pink paint using a flat brush.
2. Stamp randomly with the Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp using pink, lime and turquoise paint.
3. Stamp leaves from the Fine Leaves Stamp Set randomly using Archival Ink Jet Black
4. Stamp the Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp twice on white paper with Archival Ink Jet Black. Punch 2 circles out of those prints and 2 circles out of white paper as well. Cut 2 stems out of white paper. Assemble the flowers as shown and glue onto the background. Adhere the top flower with 3D tape.
5. Finish the card off by stamping 2 sentiments from the Friendship Sentiment Stamps along the stems.

My second sample is a clean and simple one.


Instructions
1. Colour a card panel using pink, yellow, turquoise, blue, fuchsia and magenta paint. Cut in half and distress the edges with a paper distresser.


2. Stamp parts of the Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp and Dandelions Eclectic Stamp on top using Archival Ink Jet Black.  Attach the panel to a top fold card.
3. Stamp a sentiment from the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stamps on a strip of white paper and glue in place. Finish the card off by adding marks with a white Sharpie.


Instructions 
1. Add dots to a card panel by applying lime, pink and orange paint through the Small Stencil – Polka Dots.
2. Stamp the Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp twice on a scrap of paper with pink paint. Overstamp both prints with the cup and saucer from the Coffee Time set and Archival Ink Jet Black. Cut the cup out of one print and the saucer out of the other and assemble as shown. Use 3 D tape to adhere the cup.
3. Stamp the text with stamps from the Alphabet Medley Stamp Set using Archival Ink Jet Black.


Instructions
1. Stamp a pink background with the Plaid Background Stamp using Lawn Fawn Ink Ballet Slippers.
2. Ink up the flower with Distress Crayons Twisted Citron, Ripe Persimmon and Worn Lipstick. Spray water on top and make a print on watercolour paper using your MISTI or a similar stamping platform. To add more detail overstamp the centre of the flower with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn. Enlarge the stem by hand with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn and a water brush.


3. Make 2 prints on white paper with the Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp using Archival Ink Jet Black. Tear 2 strips out of those prints. Set a pink eyelet in one of the strips. Adhere the strips to the bottom of the card. Attach orange cord to the eyelet and wrap around the card as shown. 
4. Finish the card off by stamping a sentiment from the Friendship Sentiment Stamps using Archival Ink Jet Black.

Darkroom Door Fallen Leaves Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Fine Leaves Rubber Stamps

Double Stencil Technique Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, May 08, 2019

Hi there, it’s Rachel Greig here! Today I’d like to share two cards using a double stencil technique, where you use the same stencil in two ways on the same piece of card stock! It’s a fun technique and can be used in lots of different colour combinations to create a variety of backgrounds! 

 

I’ve used the small Dots and Diamonds stencils on these cards to show how the same technique can be used with different stencils. 


Instructions: 
1. Tap the small Dots Stencil with Fossilized Amber and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink pad in random areas to cover most of the stencil. Spritz the stencil with water and press the stencil onto mixed media cardstock to make a print. Lift off the stencil and allow the card stock to dry. Clean the stencil.
2. Place the stencil over the background and line up the holes of the stencil with the open dots on the background where there was no ink. Sponge Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink through the stencil using an ink blending tool and foam. Lift off the stencil and you will see the Abandoned Coral dots inside the yellow/blue/green inked area! It doesn’t matter if the dots don’t line up perfectly, a bit of white background space adds more depth to the overall background. 
3. Use a paper distressed to distress the edges of the background and adhere to a folded Kraft card base with foam adhesive. 
4. Stamp two leaves from the Fine Leaves Stamp Set onto mixed media cardstock and watercolour with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink. Trim around each leaf and adhere two to the card as shown. 
5. Stamp the Anniversary Sentiments Stamp onto metallic shimmer paper and trim to fit the length of the card. Adhere to the card using foam adhesive. 


For this next card I used the Diamonds stencil and the Friendship Sentiments Stamp to create a similar looking card with the same techniques: 



Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Small Dots Stencil 
Darkroom Door Small Diamonds Stencil 
Darkroom Door Fine Leaves Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Anniversary Sentiments Stamp
Darkroom Door Friendship Sentiments Stamp
Distress Oxide Ink Pads: Abandoned Coral, Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber 
Archival Ink Pad: Jet Black 
125ml Spritzer Bottle 
Mixed Media Card stock 
A5 Kraft Card stock 
Paper Distresser 

This technique would work with lots of different stencils! I hope you’ll give it a try! 

Thanks for stopping by today

Using Stickles With Stencils

Darkroom Door - Sunday, May 05, 2019

Hi there, it’s Rachel Greig here! Today I’d like to share two cards showing you how to use Stickles through stencils. Stickles is a glitter glue that dries dimensionally and with a lot of glittery shine! It’s a fun way to add glitter to your cards!



I’ve used a simple and classic design for these cards as I wanted the Stickles to really stand out and be the feature for these cards. The minimal black and white stamping of the flowers adds a nice touch without taking away from the gold stencilling. 


Instructions: 
1. Trim white card stock to 13.5cm x 9cm. Lay onto craft sheet and place the Small Diamonds Stencil over the top. Use a bit of washi tape at the top and bottom of the stencil to keep it in place. 
2. Squeeze out some Gold Stickles onto a plastic palette or craft sheet. Using a palette knife, pick up some of the Stickles and gently swipe it over the stencil. Keep doing this until you have filled the areas of the stencil you want to fill. Even though the stencil covers the entire card, I only wanted to have the left hand side filled with Stickles. I left a jagged edge on where it finishes on the right hand side so it finished organically. 
3. Gently lift off the stencil and allow the Stickles to dry completely. 
4. Stamp a sentiment from the Tall Flowers Stamp Set onto the right side of the card stock using Archival Jet Black ink. 
5. Stamp a flower from the Tall Flowers Stamp Set onto white card stock and trim out with scissors. Adhere to the centre of the card as shown. 
6. Mount entire panel onto black card stock and then onto a folded white card base using foam adhesive. 


For this next card, I used the same technique, however instead of using Stickles down the left side of the stencil, I went from the top left corner to the bottom right corner, using the Small Dots Stencil 


I’ve used a different flower from the Tall Flowers Stamp Set along with one of the smaller sentiments that fit inside the open white area. The Tall Flowers Stamp Set has lots of different sentiments and flowers, so you can create lots of different designs using the same style and technique. 


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Small Dots Stencil 
Darkroom Door Small Diamonds Stencil 
Darkroom Door Tall Flowers Stamp Set
Gold Stickles 
Archival Jet Black Ink Pad 
Palette Knife 

I hope you’ll give this idea a go! There are lots of different coloured Stickles you can try! 

Have a great day!

Pebbles Water Effect Copic Card

Darkroom Door - Friday, May 03, 2019

Hi there, Jane Clark here from Miss Jane's Classroom, today I'm sharing a card using Darkroom Door Pebbles Texture Stamp

 

I must say I had heaps of fun creating this card, well, most of my cards I enjoy making, but this one especially because I wanted to create an effect of a pebble bottom river with clear water flowing over it. I must admit it was a little time consuming but rewarding, plus great calming colouring therapy!

Instructions: 


Stamp Darkroom Door Texture Stamp Pebbles all over smooth white card with Memento gray flannel ink, don't be too concerned if the images overlap because we will disguise that.


Start colouring each pebble in a random pattern using Copic markers - E55, W-5, T4 and C4 or any greys or light browns you may have.


Colour over the entire top of the shaded pebbles with Copic marker B95, this will disguise any white areas remaining.


Create depth in the pebbles by adding shadows in between some pebbles using a W-7 Copic marker. Add more shadows by shading a few pebbles, just colour the right-hand side, don't need to be neat. Go over the top again with the B95 marker if you feel the shading is too strong.


Highlight the left-hand side of a few pebbles using a white Prismacolor pencil, once again, don't be too concerned about being neat. Create a flowing stream of clear water over the pebbles by lightly drawing long wavy lines across the image, let them swirl around the pebbles like in a stream.

To finish the card I stamped Darkroom Door Adventure Quote Stamp and a fish from the Under The Sea stamp set on shrinky dinks using StazOn jet black ink. I cut the sentiment into a tag and cut the fish out, leaving a small border and a hole at the top to create a tag as well. I added the shrinky dinks tags to the card with a wavy piece of wire.


Supplies used:
 
Darkroom Door Pebbles Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Adventure Quote Stamp
Memento Ink: Grey Flannel 
Copic Markers: E55, W5, T4, C4, B95, W7
White Prismacolour Pencil
StazOn Ink: Black 
Shrink Plastic 

Have a go at creating your own pebble floor, you really can't go wrong, just keep adding layers until you're happy. 

Happy Stamping
Miss Jane

My Home Chicken Wire Layout

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, May 01, 2019

Hello Darkroom Door fans! 

It’s Belinda Spencer here with you today to share a layout featuring the fabulous new Chicken Wire Texture Stamp. This stamp is perfect for those smaller projects such as cards and artist trading cards but it also adds the most wonderful texture and interest to layout backgrounds.



Instructions:

1. Crop a piece of white cardstock to 8½” x 11¾” to form the base of the layout.

2. Crop a piece of patterned paper or cardstock to 8¼” x 11½”. Stick down on the white cardstock base.

3. Apply Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink to the Chicken Wire Texture Stamp. Stamp several times on the layout to create a frame for your photo and embellishments.

4. Use a quote from the Home Sweet Home Rubber Stamp Set and the jet black ink to add more interest to the background. Stamp several times allowing the ink to fade out a little before re-inking the stamp.


5. On an extra piece of smooth white cardstock, stamp some images to be used as embellishments. Here I have used leaves from the Fine Leaves Rubber Stamp set, a dandelion from the Bold Blossoms Rubber Stamp Set, a bird from the Garden Birds Rubber Stamp Set and the outline heart from the Hearts Rubber Stamp Set. Stamp the Chicken Wire Texture Stamp over the heart with the same ink. Next apply colour to the images using watercolour paints or inks. Dry with a heat gun and then fussy cut each element.

6. Apply Viridian Archival Ink (or other co-ordinating ink) to the Filmstrip Filmstrip Stamp. Stamp onto the extra cardstock. Fussy cut and stick down on the layout. Add your layers of matching patterned paper on top.

7. Add all of the fussy cut images from Step 5 as well as your photo. Stamp your title, fussy cut and add that using 3D foam. Add any other embellishments you choose.

Creativity Stencil Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Hi folks! It’s Teresa Abajo here today, sharing two cards using the Creativity Medium Stencil

For the first card, I used embossing ink through the stencil and some of the new Mixed Media embossing powder in Bone:



The embossing acts as a resist, and I watered down some black and grey acrylic paints to wash over it before adding splashes of bright colours of paint. I then stamped some brushes from the Artist Brushes Stamp Set, embossed them with clear powder, and cut them out. I added some more bright paint to these before tying them together and attaching them to the stencil background:


I then mounted this piece to some cardstock in coordinating colours, then onto a kraft card base. This makes for a fun, arty, messy card, intended for an equally fun, arty and messy friend!

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Medium Stencil: Creativity
Darkroom Door Rubber Stamp Set: Artist Brushes
Ranger Mixed Media Powder: Bone
Embossing powder: Clear
Distress Embossing Ink
Acrylic paints: various colours
Archival ink: Jet Black
Black twine

Here's another card using the Creativity Stencil, this time over a watercolour background:


I used Ecoline markers and water to create my colours, and added them one by one to some watercolour paper. I made sure there was plenty of water so the colours would swirl and blend organically. I then added some gold using some Gansai Tambi paint, and allowed that to swirl before drying off with a heat gun.

I then mixed some purple Ecoline marker with some embossing paste, and spread it through the stencil over the background. I then sprinkled some gold embossing paste over one word I wanted to highlight before melting the powder with a heat gun.


I left it all to dry for a day or two before trimming and mounting onto coordinating cardstock, then onto a card front.

I might keep this one for myself and find a frame for it - I think I'd like it on my wall :)

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Medium Stencil: Creativity
Embossing Paste
Ecoline Markers: various colours
Gansai Tambi paint: Starry set
Embossing powder: gold

Journey Stencil Card Ideas

Darkroom Door - Friday, April 19, 2019

Hello, its Robyn Wood joining you today to share some projects using the new Journey medium size stencil. Text stencils are always a firm favourite for use in my art journals but this time I thought I’d like to show you how they can also be used for card making. These designs will work with each of the new word block style text stencils:



Instructions:
1. Stencil a watercolour card panel with texture paste using the Journey stencil. Allow to dry well.


2. Lightly colour over texture using Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks or watercolours in shades of blue and green. Use a wet brush to push the colour around until you are happy. Allow to dry.
3. Add a spatter effect using the darkest colour and a wet brush and set aside to dry. 
4. Stamp three butterflies from Butterflies stamp set onto watercolour card using black Archival ink. 
5. Colour images with Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks or watercolour and allow to dry. Trim closely.
6. Stamp a word from the Wellbeing Word Block stamp, trim closely and mat with aqua card stock.
7. Layer panel with butterflies, pearls, gemstones, cotton and word. A small stapler may be used to affix cotton strands. Arrange in a rough circular pattern so the butterflies look like them might be flying away. Attach butterflies at the centres so the wings can lift from the surface of the card.
8. Mount panel with pale aqua card and then add to dark teal card base.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Journey Stencil
Darkroom Door Butterflies Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Wellbeing Word Block Stamp 
Archival Ink: Jet Black
Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Texture Paste & spatula
Gemstones & pearls


This card came together so easily, sponging and then stencilling text using tone on tone gives a great effect. The card design can easily be changed up to landscape orientation using any of the medium sized text stencils.

Instructions:
1. Mask off a portion of a cream card base using tape or post its. You need an open space of approx. 7cm wide. I have torn the edges of the tape to give a lovely rough edge.
2. Sponge the open area lightly. I have used yellow and orange coloured inks which will allow a darker colour to be stencilled on top. 


3. Stencil over the area using Journey stencil and a darker colour. Manoeuvre the stencil so that a single word can become prominent, in this case I have used ‘dream’. Remove mask.
4. Stamp a number of flowers from Tropical Flowers stamp set onto watercolour card using black Archival ink. 
5. Place a small amount of Distress Ink in flower colours onto a non-stick craft mat. Colour flowers by picking up colour with a wet brush. Allow to dry and fussy cut. Give some of the flowers a little dimension by bending with your fingers.
6. Cluster flowers over the lower edge of the sponged/stencilled area. Attach some of the flowers by just the centres so the petals can lift from the surface of the card.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Journey Stencil
Darkroom Door Tropical Flowers Stamp Set
Archival ink: Jet Black
Distress Ink: yellow, orange, dark red


Instructions:
1. Stencil an oval shape onto the centre of a white card base using small Oval stencil and pale brown Distress Inks.
2. Leave stencil in place and over-stamp with two stems from the Nature Walk stamp set using black Archival ink.


3. Place oval mask from Oval stencil over the coloured/stamped area and stencil with Journey stencil using Distress Oxide Inks. Allow the inks to blend slightly over the stencil for a variegated effect. The Distress Oxide inks give a lovely opaque effect but Distress Inks can also be used.
4. Use a fine, black, permanent pen to give a wriggly, zig-zag line around where the stencilling meets. This will make the centre panel pop a little.
5. Stamp a quote from stamp set onto white card using black, Archival ink. Trim closely and mat with green card. Affix to card front with foam tape.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Journey Stencil
Darkroom Door Oval Stencil Set 
Darkroom Door Nature Walk Stamp Set
Archival ink: Jet Black
Distress Inks: pale browns
Distress Oxide Inks: green & brown
Fine, black, permanent pen

I hope these projects have inspired you to get creative!

Wellbeing Booklet

Darkroom Door - Thursday, April 18, 2019

Hi there! It’s Godelieve Tijskens here today to share another project using the Wellbeing Stencil



This time it is a little booklet made out of an A4 sheet of paper. I love making these booklets. 


These booklets fit in an envelope and can be sent instead of a card.


The paper was saved after a gel printing session, it was used to clean my brayer. Folds and a cut make it easy to turn it into a booklet.


I chose single words from the Wellbeing stencil to sponge with Garden Patina Archival Ink, masking the surrounding words with sticky notes. With the stencil still in place I outlined the words with a fine pencil. On the dark parts I used a white pencil around the letters to make them stand out.

I filled the pages with stamps from several Darkroom Door sets to go with the words from the Wellbeing stencil.

A butterfly and a caravan were stamped on another sheet of contrasting colored paper, cut out and glued in place.


Before I glued the pages together I sponged the dots. The large Dots stencil is big enough to cover the entire A4 paper, so it makes it easy to sponge.


I glued the pages together, but left 1 side open. I made a tag to put inside this pocket. So there is room for some handwriting.   


Supplies I used:
Darkroom Door Medium Stencil: Wellbeing
Darkroom Door Large Stencil: Dots
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Enjoy The Ride, Wings, Carved Caravans, Trees, Love Birds
Darkroom Door Quote Stamp: Try
Ranger Archival Inkpad: Garden Patina 
Pencil
White Pencil

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
