Connie Mercer has created some quick and fun 3" x 4" cards. These would be great to make in a batch so you have some cards on hand when you need one quickly! 


Instructions:
I used white cardstock and coordinated the colored cardstock with the ink color I used to stamp the Flower Garden Texture Stamp with. Stamp the Texture Stamp on white cardstock. Stamp the bird image in the center of the stamped texture image. Use the Stitched Border Rubber Stamp set to put a stitch line around the card front. Speckle with brown paint or ink. Add the sentiment from the Thank You Rubber Stamp set and for an extra shimmer, go over the bird with Wink of Stella/Clear. Adhere to a white card. 


This idea could be used with different combinations of Texture Stamps and images from the Eclectic Stamp range. There's lots to choose from! 


Mix up the sentiments according to what you need. The little tiny sentiments like this Thank You look great on tiny tags! 


For a larger Thank you card, Connie has stamped the Flower Garden in two different inks for the background and added the birds from Love Birds Stamp Set and leaves from Carved Leaves Vol 1 Rubber Stamp set. . The Thank You sentiment is from the Simple Sayings Rubber Stamp Set.

Pocket Full of Posies Postcard

Darkroom Door - Thursday, November 05, 2015
Hi, it's Susie here today! It can be quite difficult to create masculine cards for the men in our lives - especially with flowers! I think choosing a neutral colour palette as a starting point can be very helpful!
 
Here's a postcard I've create that has a little pocket that holds the carved flowers within.

 
Instructions:
Create a pocket using a large white luggage tag. Fold the card over and stitch the bottom and sides together. Stamp a carved flower (light grey ink), film strip, man and sentiment (black ink) onto the tag. Add ribbon to the top of tag.
Stamp film strip, photo no. label and more carved flowers in grey and black inks onto white card. Fussy cut around them.
Stamp Measuring Tape Texture Stamp onto postcard sized patterned paper that has been mounted on white card and once more on a panel of kraft card using black ink. Swipe the edges of both pieces with black ink.
Layer the kraft card and tag pocket onto postcard background. Affix all the stamped embellishments. I used some Magic Mount 3D tape on the photo no. label and the light grey carved flower to add an extra dimension to the piece.  
Place remaining carved flowers into pocket. Add black zig-zag trim to complete postcard.

Supplies Used:
Darkroom Door Measuring Tape Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Carved Flowers Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Photography Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Dashing Gents Rubber Stamp Set

Hello, it's Godelieve here, sharing a "Wise Words" mini book using Quote Stamps and Texture Stamps.


Instructions:
1. I chose a black Ranger Tag #12 as a cover for my book.  I made two folds to create the spine.  


2. I used blue and yellow Dylusions Ink Spray on both sides of the watercolour paper. I love how they mix into nice vibrant greens. Left it to dry completely. Then I added texture, using several Texture stamps, the Coffee Stain Eclectic Stamp and Distress ink pads.


3. I've cut the paper into pages, a bit smaller than the tag, and folded them in half.


4. The quotes are stamped with Archival ink. I arranged them on the pages. Some of them are cut out or cut into strips. 


 
5. I attached the pages to the cover using a pamphlet stitch.  The letters on the front cover are die cuts.

Buttons ATC

Darkroom Door - Monday, September 14, 2015
Hi! Belinda here today to share with you my ATC for the ‘Buttons’ theme featuring the Weathered Stripes and Splatter Texture Stamps and Viva Décor Transparent Red Croco.


Instructions:

1. To create the background start by stamping the Weathered Stripes Texture Stamp onto ATC sized white cardstock using Rose Madder Ranger Archival Ink.

2. Use a palette knife to apply some Viva Décor Croco in Transparent Red over the surface. You don’t want to cover the whole surface though. Allow to dry.

3. Spray some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Pink over the top and set aside to dry.

4. The flower has been created using the stamp kissing technique. First apply Rose Madder Ranger Archival Ink to the Carved Flower stamp. Apply Plum Ranger Archival Ink to the Splatter Texture Stamp and then press the Splatter stamp onto the flower stamp. Apply onto white cardstock. Repeat to create two flowers then cut them out, scrunch them a little and layer together. Thread your button and glue on top of the flower.

5. You can create a stem out of almost anything but here I have used Prima Wire Thread as it is so easy to bend how you want it and it stays! I secured the stem to my atc with a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and then glued the flower head on top.

6. Finally create a little flower pot from corrugated cardstock. Add a little gesso over the top and then adhere a sentiment.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Weathered Stripes Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Splatter Texture Stamp

Darkroom Door Carved Flowers Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Bold Blossoms Rubber Stamp Set

Penny Farthing Eclectic Stamp Project Ideas

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Hello! Today we are sharing projects created with the Penny Farthing Eclectic Stamp

Rachel Greig has created a vintage style card: 


Instructions:
Stamp Penny Farthing Eclectic Stamp onto cream cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink pad. Sponge around edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Mount onto black cardstock. Emboss kraft cardstock using Sizzix Tim Holtz Collage Embossing Folder and sponge Vintage Photo Distress ink over the raised areas to bring out the detail. Mount onto black cardstock and wrap black ribbon around the bottom. Adhere Penny Farthing panel to the top and adhere entire panel to folded kraft card. 

Robyn Wood shows great use of colour with her card:


This card features a masking technique and crayon resist to give a bit of a vintage feel to the image. Masking is made simpler by stamping onto a large sticky note and trimming out the image.

Instructions:
Stamp Penny Farthing onto white card (approx. 9cm x 8cm) using black Archival Ink. Mask the image and overstamp with Scratches Background stamp using Archival Aquamarine ink. Draw over parts of the image with a white crayon to highlight. Sponge the wheels with Mustard Seed Distress ink and around the image with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. Wipe over the areas with crayon to remove excess ink. Distress the edges of the card and sponge with Peacock Feathers Distress ink. Use torn cardstock for layering, firstly with black and then attach to a larger piece of dark yellow cardstock. Tie with twine and attach to a black card front. Embellish with a metal mini gear over the small wheel and use a metal word band as a greeting.

Love how Connie Mercer has combined the Penny Farthing with other Darkroom Door stamps in her cards:


Instructions:
Stamp World Map Background Stamp on white cardstock and trim out.  Adhere to card front. Stamp Criss Cross Texture Stamp on both sides of card front. Stamp Penny Farthing stamp on white cardstock and trim out. Stamp Craved Leaves and trim out. Add corner to card front. Stamp sentiment from Classic Motorcycles Rubber Stamp set and trim out.

Palette Blending Technique with Patchwork Butterfly

Darkroom Door - Sunday, August 02, 2015
Hello, it’s Robyn Wood with you today sharing a card featuring the Darkroom Door Patchwork Butterfly Collage Stamp. I love how interesting this stamp is – it has snippets of many of the Background Stamps miniaturised as pattern for the wings.


For this card I used a palette blending technique to watercolour the butterfly with dye based stamp pads. I find this a handy technique to use when you want to get the colour just right and you don’t have markers that suit. I modelled my colour choices on the Cairns Birdwing Butterfly, it has a beautiful graduation of blues, yellows and greens on the wings plus a pop of red near the head.

Instructions:
1. Stamp Patchwork Butterfly using black ink onto white cardstock.
2. Add small amounts of Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean Distress Ink to a non-porous surface. I used a clear stamp block so you could see the colours but a non-stick craft mat works well. Pick up a bit of colour from each patch with the Aquash brush and use the block surface as a mixing palette to create a couple of different colours.


3. Colour the wings, adding a pop of red marker near the head and trim out closely.
4. Stamp notecard twice using French Script Texture stamp and Watering Can ink. Make the image disappear a little first by wiping the wet stamp with a baby wipe or tissue prior to stamping.


5. Stamp two corners with Coffee Stain Eclectic stamp using Weathered Wood ink.
6. Distress the edges of the journaling card and sponge with Weathered Wood ink.
7. Add two torn strips of washi tape to card base and affix journaling card. Affix coloured butterfly at an angle.
8. Stamp the words from Wildflower stamp set using black ink and affix to card. Add a bit of torn washi tape for interest.

Hints:

• Any paper with a soft abstract pattern will work, just alter the ink colours to match.

• If the paper doesn’t have a line border – draw one in using a fine black pen.

• Use a damp paint brush if you don’t have an Aquash brush.

Supplies Used:
Darkroom Door Patchwork Butterfly Collage Stamp

Darkroom Door Wildflower Stamp Set Vol 1

Darkroom Door French Script Texture Stamp
Darkroom Door Coffee Stain Eclectic Stamp
Ranger Archival ink: Jet Black, Watering Can
Ranger Distress Ink: Weathered Wood, Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed
