Hello! One of the most popular styles of Darkroom Door stamps has been the 'Inchies' series, which includes Garden Inchies, Christmas Inchies, Travel Inchies, Seaside Inchies and now we have added a new set to this series called Steampunk Inchies!
Teresa Abajo and Suzz Czosek have created some fantastic cards to show how these stamps can be used.
Here are Teresa's cards:
Without cutting up the stamps into individual inchies, stamp the entire plate of Steampunk Inchies onto mint paper using Coffee Archival ink. Cut one 3x3 inchie arrangement and one 1 x 6 inchie arrangement for each of the cards. Mount these onto dark brown card.
For the square card, stamp the Torn Text Background stamp onto dark brown card using Aquatic Splash VersaMagic ink. Cut down to fit a 15 x 15cm kraft card and adhere. Stamp the Grid Background stamp onto mint paper with Coffee ink, sponge with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, tear a strip and adhere to card. Add layers of corrugated cardboard and hessian, and then the mounted inchie images. Embellish with chipboard cogs and the word from the Steampunk stamp set. Spatter with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain.
For the long tall card, stamp the cogs and word from the Steampunk Stamp Set using Coffee ink onto a 10 x 21cm kraft card. Stamp the Grid Background stamp onto mint paper with Coffee ink and sponge with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. Adhere to card under a scrap of corrugated cardboard. Add rows of stitching with the sewing machine in between each image, and allow the threads to hang. Adhere this to the card and embellish with chipboard cogs.
