Stamping Onto Acetate Jolly Jonquils Card

Darkroom Door - Friday, March 01, 2019

Hi there! It’s Jane Clark here from Miss Jane’s Classroom.

Do you love collage stamps as much as me? I just love the fact that all the hard work is done for me! This beautiful Jolly Jonquils Collage Stamp from Darkroom Door has it all, Jonquils, swirls, postage marks, vintage/distressed border and a text/grid overlay. Do you know how long that would take to create?! Just aligning up all the images using separate stamps and praying that you don't slip up anywhere especially the last one!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE making collages out of my stamps, but some days I just want to be lazy and when you have a stamp that has it all well hallelujah!  

Here’s what I’ve created: 



I stamped the Jolly Jonquils Collage Stamp on a page from an old book using a light brown ink, the paper from the book was already aged and had a great distress look to it. I coloured the Jonquils using Copic markers in golden yellow tones. I stamped the Jolly Jonquils image again on a piece of clear plastic using StazOn jet black ink. I placed it over the coloured book page aligning up the images so it wouldn't look blurred, then I secured it in place using double-sided tape behind the distress borders on the plastic image. I further decorated the card by adding lace, ruler sticker, yellow trim and green foliage in the top right-hand corner.  


For the verse I used the Friendship Sentiments Stamp and created the Friendship banner and stapled it in place. The Friendship Sentiments Stamp has so many great sayings! Gotta love that too!

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Jolly Jonquils Collage Stamp
Darkroom Door Friendship Sentiments Stamp
Distress Oxide Ink: Vintage Photo
StazOn Black Ink 
Copic Markers - Yellow Tones
Clear Acetate
Old book pages
Threads and ribbons

Happy Stamping, 
Miss Jane xx

Flower Girl Collage Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Hi Stampers, it is Godelieve Tijskens today, sharing 3 card ideas with the Flower Girl Collage Stamp.

My first card is a trifold card in black & white. I love black & white, but of course this would work in any color.



1. Stamp the Flower Girl twice onto smooth paper, using black ink.  I used Archival ink


2. Glue 1 image on the left hand part of a trifold card.
3. Cut around the girl.  Also cut out the basket from this image to use later inside the card.


4. Glue the second image on the right hand flap, making sure that both images line up perfectly when the card is closed.


Because the cardstock is black, a white panel on the inside is necessary for writing space.

5. Ink up the corner of the Roses photo stamp with black ink, stamp at the top of the white card.  
6. Choose a saying, I used a stamp from the Simple Sayings Vol 2 set, stamp it in black too.
7. Glue the cut out basket in place.


8. To keep the card closed you can wrap some ribbon around it.  

Supplies:
Darkroom Door Collage Stamp: Flower Girl
Darkroom Door Photo Stamp: Roses
Darkroom Door Stamp Set: Simple Sayings Vol 2
Ranger Archival Inkpad: Jet Black


My second card is a Mother’s Day card. But it would work for other occasions as well.


1. Ink the stamp with Distress Oxide ink Gathered Twigs
2. Let the ink dry completely. Distress Oxide inks need a bit longer to dry, but you can use a heat tool to speed things up.
3. I love to use coloured pencils, so I took my time to simply colour the image with pencils, quite relaxing for me.
4. I looked for cardstock in 2 matching colours to mat the image, and adhered it to a white folded card.
5. Words from the Simple Sayings Vol 2 set were stamped onto an oval diecut and attached with 3D foamtape.

Supplies:
Darkroom Door Collage Stamp: Flower Girl
Darkroom Door Stamp Set: Simple Sayings Vol 2
Ranger Distress Oxide Inkpad: Gathered Twigs
Derwent Procolour Pencils 
Sizzix Tim Holtz Bigz Dies Tag & Bookplates

My third card is a Wishing Well card.


1. Ink the Flower Girl stamp with black Archival ink and stamp over a gel print.


2. I used a gel print from my stash. It was made a while ago with several Darkroom Texture stamps and stencils. The surface is quite rough, hence the distressed stamping, especially on the girl’s skirt.


3. Stamping faces over a print can be tricky.  I use my MISTI to stamp onto acetate first. Then, keeping the acetate in place, I slide the gel print under the acetate and move it around to find a good spot to stamp. After putting the magnets on the card I remove the acetate to stamp the image on the right spot. Acetate is easy to clean and can be used over and over again.


4. Flower Soft was glued on top of the flowers, using bookbinding glue. I also put some Flower Soft in the basket.
5. The panel was glued onto a folded card.
6. The saying is from an early Darkroom Door stamp set: Garden Greetings.

Supplies:
Darkroom Door Collage Stamp: Flower Girl
Darkroom Door Stamp Set: Garden Greetings
Ranger Archival Inkpad: Jet Black
Flower Soft
Gel Print
Bookbinding Glue

I hope I inspired you with these ideas.  

Thank you for dropping by!

Arty Triangles Origami Animals

Darkroom Door - Friday, August 24, 2018

Hello Darkroom Door fans! It’s Belinda Spencer here with you today to share a tag and two cards featuring the fabulous new Small Stencil Arty Triangles. My projects today also feature some fun origami creatures created using the Arty Triangles Collage Stamp.




Instructions:

1. Take a size 12 giant manilla tag and use an ink blending tool to apply various Distress Oxides in the colours of your choice. Here I have used a combination of Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers.

2. Apply the Arty Triangles Collage Stamp using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink in various places around the tag. Dry the ink with a heat gun. Place the Arty Triangles Small Stencil over the stamped triangles and apply Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink using the ink blending tool. Add more stencilled triangles around the tag using the Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock feathers inks lightly. Flick some water over the tag to create a water stained effect. Dry with a heat gun.

3. Place the Arty Circles Small Stencil on the tag and apply white gesso over a few of the circles to create air bubbles. Wash your stencil straight away so the gesso doesn’t dry. Dry the stencil and then place back over the top of the gessoed circles. Use a fine black journaling pen to draw outlines around the air bubbles.

4. Use the air bubbles stamp from the Under The Sea Rubber Stamp Set and the Jet Black ink to stamp more air bubbles. Colour them white using a white paint pen such as a Uni Posca Pen.

5. Stamp a quote from the Seaside Vol 2 Rubber Stamp Set repeatedly over the tag using the Jet Black ink.

6. Stamp the Arty Triangles Collage Stamp on some extra smooth white cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Apply double-sided tape to the back of the stamped images to make it easier to stick them down later. Fussy cut each individual triangle and then play around with them to create an origami fish shape. Draw in an eye. Stick them down on some extra white cardstock and then cut out. Add to the tag using 3D foam.


7. Stamp a seahorse and a couple of fish from the Under The Sea Rubber Stamp set using the Jet Black ink. Fussy cut and add to the tag using 3D foam.

8. Stamp the sentiment on extra white cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Cut out, ink the edges with Peacock Feathers ink and add to the tag. Finish by adding some sequins and water droplets using Glossy Accents or Nuvo Crystal Drops.


Here are two cards I have created in the same style:





Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Friends Quote Stamp

I hope you are feeling inspired to create your own projects using this fabulous stencil. Why not have a go at creating your own origami animals too. I wonder what you will come up with. Don’t forget to share your beautiful creations in the Darkroom Door Inspiration Group on Facebook.

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, July 18, 2018
Hello Darkroom Door fans! Belinda Spencer here with you today to share a sweet card set featuring the fabulous new Arty Triangles Small Stencil. My cards today demonstrate how perfectly the stencil works with the Arty Triangles Collage Stamp and how easy they are to use together.



Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock measuring 14cm x 21cm. Fold in half to create the card base.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 10cm x 13.5cm. On a heat resistant craft sheet, press down some Distress Inks in various colours. Here I have used Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey. Spritz the inks with water and then place your cardstock on top. Remove from the craft sheet swiping it a little as you remove the piece. Dry with a heat gun and reapply to the craft sheet until you are happy with the depth of colour and layers. Dry with a heat gun.

3. Apply the Arty Triangles Collage Stamp to this piece using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Dry the ink with the heat gun. Place the Arty Triangles Small Stencil over the top making sure to line up perfectly. Secure in place with a little washi tape. Use an ink blending tool to apply Picked Raspberry ink over the top. Reapply until you are happy with the depth of colour. Remove the stencil. Stick this piece on the card base.

4. Use a 2” circle punch to punch a circle from smooth white cardstock. Apply the sheet music stamp from the Melody Rubber Stamp Set over the top using the Jet Black Ink. Dry with a heat gun. Ink the circle using the same inks as the card front in Step 2. Stick down on a bought paper doily or cut one yourself using a punch or die. Stick down on the card front.

5. Stamp a heart from the Hearts Rubber Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using the Jet Black Ink. Fussy cut and add to the punched circle using 3D foam.

6. Stamp a cute bird from the Carved Birds Rubber Stamp Set using the Wild Honey ink. Fussy cut and add tail feathers using embroidery thread. Stamp the Arty Triangles Collage Stamp on smooth white cardstock again. Ink the triangles with the Picked Raspberry again using the stencil. Fussy cut a triangle to add to the carved bird as a wing. Stick the bird on the card front using 3D foam.

7. Stamp a balloon from the Party Time Rubber Stamp Set onto the extra cardstock using the Picked Raspberry and Jet Black inks. Also stamp the music note from the Melody set. Fussy cut both and add to the card. Stamp the sentiment from the Party Time stamp set using the Jet Black ink. Fussy cut and add to the card front using 3D foam.

Arty Collage Stamps Art Journal Page and Tags

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, February 14, 2017
Hi there! It's Rachel Greig here today sharing an art journal page and two tags using the Arty Circles, Arty Triangles and Arty Hexagons Collage Stamps! 


This page started by brayering Dina Wakley Media paints over the background to create a grungy textured painted layer to start with. Then stamp the Arty Circles using a light coloured ink pad to co-ordinate with the paint colours. Next add some washi tape, a few strips along the bottom and top in black and white. I used Tim Holtz ideology tape. 


Next stamp the Arty Circles Collage Stamp onto the background using Archival Jet Black ink. This will give a nice contrast to the lighter stamped areas. You can stamp over the washi tape too as the Jet Black ink will dry on the tape. 


Ink up the large butterfly stamp from the Wings stamp set using various colours of Distress Inks and lightly mist with water before stamping onto a white tag. Stamp a sentiment from Wildflowers Vol 1 rubber stamp set onto white card stock using Archival Jet Black ink. Adhere tag and sentiment to the art journal page. Draw around the edge of the tag and sentiment with a Distress Crayon and rub to blend it out a little to complete! 

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Arty Circles Collage Stamp
Darkroom Door Wings Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Wildflowers Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set
Archival Ink: Jet Black, Viridian
Distress Ink: Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers 
Dina Wakley Media Paint: Lime, Lemon
Size 8 White Tag
Distress Crayons
Small Brayer
Tim Holtz Tissue Tape

To use up left over paint, I brayered the paint onto two tags. For the first tag I stamped the Arty Triangles along the left hand side to create a funky border. Then I stamped a quote from the Art De Fleur Vol 1 rubber stamp set. This is a quick and easy tag to create!  


Here's a similar tag, this time using the Arty Hexagons Collage Stamp and a quote from Art De Fleur Vol 2 rubber stamp set. I love how the Collage Stamps can be nested into each other to create continuous patterns! 


Supplies used:

Three Collage Squares Cards

Darkroom Door - Saturday, January 14, 2017

Hi there! It's Rachel Greig here today sharing three cards using the Travel Squares, Seaside Squares and Steampunk Squares Collage Stamps. These stamps are so quick and easy to use, as they can be stamped over coloured backgrounds for a quick card or coloured in for more detailed cards. You could also stamp the image and only use a few of the squares, for instance a strip of 3 squares, or a set of 4 to make a square card. Lots of options! 



For these cards, I wanted to show how to create some quick cards using the full stamp. 


1. Stamp the French Script Texture Stamp onto a folded kraft card base using Archival Jet Black ink. Stamp several times to cover the edges of the card. 
2. Stamp the Travel Squares Collage Stamp onto white gloss cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink and allow to dry. 
3. Colour stamped image using light colours of Distress Markers. 
4. Adhere stamped image to black cardstock, then onto the front of the card with foam adhesive. 

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Travel Squares Collage Stamp
Darkroom Door French Script Texture Stamp
Archival Ink: Jet Black
Distress Markers: Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters
Gloss Cardstock
A5 Kraft Card


1. Create a coloured background using Broken China and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. 
2. Stamp the Seaside Squares Collage Stamp over the background using Archival Cobalt Ink. Distress the edges with a paper distresser. 
3. Stamp 'By the sea' from Seaside Vol 1 Rubber Stamp set onto a scrap piece of the background and trim to turn into a banner. 
4. Trim a piece of white lace or mesh to fit underneath the banner sentiment and the Seaside Squares stamped image. Adhere the mesh and the sentiment over the image using foam adhesive. Layer the larger piece of mesh underneath the stamped image and adhere to a blue piece of cardstock that is the same size. 
5. Adhere entire panel to a folded white card to complete! 

Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Seaside Squares Collage Stamp
Darkroom Door Seaside Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set
Distress Inks: Broken China, Seedless Preserves
Archival Ink: Cobalt, Jet Black 
Paper Distresser
A5 White Linen Cardstock
Mesh 


1. Create a background using neutral colours of Alcohol Inks onto white gloss cardstock. 
2. Stamp the Steampunk Squares Collage Stamp over the background using Archival Jet Black ink pad and allow to dry. Adhere to black cardstock. 
3. Trim Kraft Glassine paper to the same size as the black card front. Crumple the glassine paper to give it lots of creases and texture. This will make the glassine paper slightly smaller in size than the card. Adhere to the front of the card with foam adhesive. 
4. Adhere the stamped panel to the front using foam adhesive to finish! 

Supplie used: 
Darkroom Door Steampunk Squares Collage Stamp
Gloss Cardstock
Alcohol Ink
Kraft Glassine Paper 

I hope you have enjoyed these ideas! These cards are a great way to use up coloured background pieces that you may already have on hand.

Steampunk Squares Collage Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, January 04, 2017
Hello arty people! Teresa Abajo here bringing you a couple of samples using the new Steampunk Squares Collage Stamp. This stamp is fantastic for masculine themed cards - and I know we all need more ideas for masculine cards! 

Here's my first card:


I stamped the Steampunk Squares Collage stamp using black ink and then embossed it with copper embossing powder. The squares were then coloured with Distress Inks and an Aquash brush, then cut out.

I layered each square onto some ink stained cotton gauze, before adhering them to a background that has been stamped with the Cogs Background stamp and coloured with Distress Spray Stains.

I then finished the card off with some twine, a couple of mini metal cogs, a sentiment from the Brushed Sentiments stamp set and a word from the Steampunk stamp set.


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Steampunk Squares Collage Stamp
Darkroom Door Cogs Background Stamp
Darkroom Door Brushed Sentiments Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Steampunk Stamp Set
Distress Inks: Walnut Stain, Mermaid Lagoon, Vintage Photo
Distress Spray Stain: Frayed Burlap, Rusty Hinge
Aquash Brush Medium
Embossing Powder: Lindy's Stamp Gang Midnight Copper
Ink: Versafine Tuxedo Black, Archival Jet Black
Idea-ology Mini Metal Gears

For my second card, I went for a textured mixed media look:


I started by stamping the Gazette Background stamp with black ink onto some tissue paper and adhering torn strips of this onto some cardstock with gesso. Then I applied texture paste through a brick stencil, and when it was dry I stamped the Cogs Collection Eclectic stamp with brown ink and the Postcards Texture stamp with grey ink randomly over the background. To complete the background I sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink, spattered some Gathered Twigs Distress Spray stain and stamped some of the words and the lightglobe from the Steampunk stamp set.

To create the squares, I stamped the Steampunk Squares stamp onto cream cardstock with Archival Coffee ink, cut them out and sponged them with Vintage Photo ink. These were then adhered to the background with one slightly overlapping the other. I then applied Glossy Accents here and there and sprinkled microbeads over the card, and used Glossy Accents again to adhere some Ideaology metal cogs to finish the card off.

Seaside Squares Collage Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Sunday, January 01, 2017

Hi, it's Belinda here today to share four cards I have created using the stunning Seaside Squares Collage Stamp. I have to say that the collage style of card is my absolute favourite and I do love the sea so this stamp is just perfect for me.



1. Cut a piece of white cardstock 14.5cm x 21cm and fold in half to form the card base.
2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock to 10cm x 14cm. Apply the Fishing Net Background Stamp to this piece using Paradise Teal Archival Ink. Distress the edges and stick down on the card base.
3. Cut another piece of white cardstock measuring 8.5cm x 12.5cm. Apply the Shadow 6 Up Frame Stamp to this piece using the Paradise Teal ink. Distress the edges and stick down on top of the Fishing Net background piece.
4. Apply the Seaside Squares stamp to another piece of smooth white cardstock using the Paradise Teal ink. Cut out each square with a small border around each. Distress the edges of each square and add to the card front using 3D foam.
5. Stamp the Seaside Squares again on another piece of smooth white cardstock using the same ink. Fussy cut the shells and add to the card front using 3D foam.
6. Apply the Seaside Word Block stamp to another piece of white cardstock and cut out the sentiment. Add to the card front with 3D foam. Glue on some sequins. Apply Glossy Accents to the air bubbles on the squares.

Spritz the stamp with water from a mister bottle and apply the stamp to the bottom of the cardstock. Use a wet paintbrush to blend the colours if required. Apply the spotty stamp from the same set in the same way to create more interest for the background. Also stamp the air bubbles from the Under The Sea Stamp Set using Aquamarine Archival Ink.
4. On a separate piece of smooth white cardstock, stamp the seaweed twice using Aquamarine and Paradise Teal Archival Inks. Add double sided tape to the back of the stamped images before fussy cutting to create instant stickers. Next stamp the seashell using Tree Branch ink and the coral using an combination of Tree Branch and Aquamarine. Stamp the sentiment and the small starfish also. Fussy cut all of these images.
5. Stamp the seahorse from the Under the Sea set using Paradise Teal ink. Fussy cut. Stamp the Seaside Squares on another piece of smooth white cardstock and cut out the seahorse square only. Distress the edges.
6. Now it is time to assemble all of the stamped and fussy cut images on the card front. Use 3D foam under everything except the seaweed to add dimension to the card. Finish by gluing on some white sequins.
