Suitcase Card Ideas

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, June 26, 2018
Hi, Connie Mercer here with a couple of cards using the new Suitcase Eclectic Stamp. This is a great stamp for creating travel themed cards! Here's what I have created: 

Stamp the Postage Stamps Background Stamp on white cardstock. Use several different colours of ink to mimic the different colours of postage stamps. Mount the background on two different colours of cardstock, bringing in two of the colours from the background. Stamp the Suitcase on white cardstock and trim out. Stamp stickers out for the suitcase using the Correspondence and Vintage Office sets and adhere to suitcase. Add a Paper Dolls image by Tim Holtz/Idea-ology. Brass look alike brads were added to the suitcase using a Pearl Pen by Viva.  Stamp the words World Traveler on white cardstock, trim out and adhere to card front. Speckle with ink splats or paint. Stamp postage cancellation image on front of card.

This card is created much the same way as the first card. Stamp the background, on white cardstock, using the Tickets stamp by Darkroom Door. Stamp Lady Liberty, with black ink, on the side and adhere to the card base. Stamp two suitcases out, on white cardstock, using Archival (Potting soil) and Distress Oxide (Walnut Stain) and trim out. Overlap the suitcases and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the suitcase with words and stickers from different Darkroom Door sets. Add the paper doll to the card front. Add some color to the flag by using the Cobalt and Red Geranium Archival inks. Speckle the card with ink or paint. Add the Brass look a like brads, to the suitcase, using the Pearl Pen by Viva Decor.

For this next card, I have used the stamp like a background stamp. Single image stamps make for a fun
card background and are so easy!!!

Stamp the image several times on white cardstock. You can position the stamp or stamp in random places. I positioned the suitcase to make rows of suitcases. The created background was then adhered to a cream colored card base. One image was stamped out and then trimmed. The carved leaves were stamped to look like they were behind the luggage. The Script Texture stamp was added for a vintage feel. The suitcase was adhered with foam squares and then embellished with Word Bands by Tim Holtz Idea-ology.
