A Moment in Time Journal Page

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Hello, it is Anna-Karin here with you today, sharing an art journal page made with the new Stunning Camera Eclectic Stamp. I love photography and old cameras, and this vintage camera stamp is really wonderful, and works for so many different types of projects. It is great for both cardmaking, art journaling and scrapbooking.


I wanted more than one impression of the camera on my page and got the idea of stamping it four times, using the four inks in Tim Holtz Mixed Media Palette. The detail in this stamp is really amazing and as you can see, it looks great in a variety of shades, and doesn’t just have to be stamped in black. A blue, orange or pink camera would look awesome too. For my project, I worked in my Dina Wakley Media Journal, on a burlap page. The journal has watercolour, burlap, canvas and kraft pages. It’s a really fun journal.


Start by stamping the camera four times with the four colours in Tim Holtz Archival Ink Mixed Media Palette. I used Specialty Stamping Paper, since it picks up details really great, but you can also use other papers. 


Cut the cameras out and ink the edges with Ground Espresso.


The Photography set works great together with the Camera Eclectic stamp. Stamp words and a sentiment on tags die cut from inked manila cardstock. I found the inked paper in my scrap box and think it was inked with Antique Linen and Pumice Stone. Ink the edges with Ground Espresso.


Stamp the Filmstrip Border stamp on acetate and cut out.


Staple the filmstrip to the burlap and layer the cameras on top. I glued the cameras with Matte Medium. 


Glue the tree small tags to the upper edge of the page. If you want to you can add some string to them too.


One thing I really like with this camera stamp is that it has a fair amount of white space, which you can colour if you’d like to. I didn’t do that here, but you can easily add colour to this camera.


I sometimes like to use photos in my art journals, and here I picked a teenage one of myself, which I also thought worked good together with the sentiment.


I wanted another fabric element on the page and cut out a studio photo background from one of Tim Holtz’s Eclectic Elements fabrics. 


I added Design Tape and Small Talk sticker to finish the page.

Supplies:
Darkroom Door Camera Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Photography Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Filmstrip Border Stamp
Ranger Dina Wakley Media Journal
Specialty Stamping Paper
Mixed Media Cardstock
Tim Holtz Mixed Media Palette Ink Pad

Layered Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Thursday, May 11, 2017

Hi, it's Belinda Spencer here today to share my projects featuring the fabulous new Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp. I love this sweet stamp so much and have used it on four cards. On the first card I have used it on its own but on the remaining cards I have teamed it up with the Mason Jar Frame Stamp. They were made for each other!


Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of kraft cardstock 15cm x 22cm. Fold in half to form the card base.
2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock 10.5cm x 14.5cm. Apply colour to the Harlequin Background Stamp using the Scarlet Red Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen. (You could also use Distress Ink for this). Spritz with a little water and apply to the cardstock piece. Stick down on the card base.
3. Cut another piece of white cardstock 9cm x 13cm. Colour a stamp from the Bold Blossoms set with the Scarlet Red pen as well as the Nougat pen. (Again, you could use Distress Inks for this). Spritz with water and apply to the cardstock piece. Scribble the pens onto an acrylic stamping block and pick up the colour with a soft wet paintbrush to flick the colour over this piece. Stick down on the card front.
4. Apply the Mini Mason Jar stamp onto some white cardstock using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Choose a stamp from the Foliage Stamp Set and colour with the same pens (or Distress Inks). Spritz with water and stamp inside the mason jar. Fussy cut the jar and add to the card front using 3D foam.
5. Stamp three butterflies from the Butterflies Stamp Set and colour with the pens. Fussy cut and add to the card front. Stamp a sentiment and add that to the card too.

3. Cut another piece of white cardstock 9cm x 14cm. Apply Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks to a stamp from the Watery Washes Stamp Set. Spritz with water and stamp on this piece. Use a soft wet paintbrush to blend the colours. Squish the stamp pads onto an acrylic stamping block and use the paintbrush to flick colour over the background. Stick this piece down on the card front.
4. Stamp both the Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp and the Mason Jar Frame Stamp onto smooth white cardstock using Jet Black Archival ink. Choose a flower from the Fine Flowers Stamp Set. Stamp the smaller version of the flower in the Mini Mason jar and the larger version in the larger Mason jar. Use Distress Inks to paint the jars. Cut out and add to the card front using 3D foam under each.

Two Step-through Bicycle Eclectic Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Hello stamping folk! Teresa Abajo here with a couple of ideas using the new Step-though Bicycle Eclectic Stamp.

There are so many occasions when a bicycle stamp is handy - it's the quintessential fun, carefree and happy icon. I was also thrilled to have another image to use with all the awesome sentiments in the Enjoy the Ride stamp set! Other sentiments such as Happy Birthday or Thank You would also work with this image.

Here's the first card:


Instructions
1. Stamp the bicycle using black ink on the centre of a 13.3 x 9 cm piece of white cardstock. Mount this onto some black cardstock then onto a folded white card.
2. Stamp the chevrons a couple of times using Aquamarine ink. Use the second generation impression so that the chevrons are lighter.
3. Using the green Scribble Stick, draw a couple of lines under the bike for the ground. Spread the colour out using a water brush. Dry well.
4. Apply a little yellow Scribble Stick to an acrylic block, pick up the colour with the water brush and add short strokes to indicate flowers. Repeat with the orange and red Scribble Sticks.
5. Stamp the sentiment using black ink, trim to size, mount onto black cardstock, then onto the card front.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Step-through Bicycle Eclectic stamp
Darkroom Door Chevron Texture Stamp

Instructions

2. Stamp the bicycle onto white cardstock using black ink. Die cut with a circle die. Mount this onto a slightly larger circle that has been cut from black cardstock.
3. Add some spatters with some Broken China Distress Oxide ink and water to a 9.5 x 13.8 cm piece of white card. When dry, adhere the bicycle image to the left hand side.
4. Stamp the sentiment on the bottom right hand corner using black ink, then mount this piece onto some black cardstock, then onto a folded white card.
5. Use little dots of Glossy Accents to adhere sequins to the card. Add some blue enamel dots.

Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Friday, May 05, 2017

Hi, it is Godelieve today. I'm sharing two cards I made with the Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp from the new release. How cute is that dog?


On the first card I stamped the dog with Archival Ink Potting Soil. I've cut the dog out and watercolored him with Distress Inks Frayed Burlap and Worn Lipstick.


The coloured background was coloured on a non-stick craft sheet with Distress Oxide inks. After the paper dried I have cut it to size and distressed the edges. Then I stamped the Playing Quote stamp using Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain.

Before I composed the card, I have stamped some marks from the Grunge Marks set with Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain. I also stapled down a strip of corrugated cardboard for the dog to sit on.


I thought the dog needed something to play with, so I stamped the circles stamp from the Grunge Marks set and used a circle punch to cut a ball.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp 
Darkroom Door Playing Quote Stamp
Darkroom Door Grunge Marks Stamp Set 
Archival Inkpad: Potting Soil
Distress Inkpads: Frayed Burlap, Worn Lipstick
Distress Oxide Inkpads: Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain
Tonic Paper Distresser
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Circle Punch

If you read my blog, maybe you know that I love simple black and white cards. So my second card had to be a black and white one.


I used black Archival Ink to stamp the cute dog, and cut him out. 


But I wanted to add a bit of color, so I gave him a little red heart, it is a stamp from the All Occasions set. I heat embossed it with red embossing powder.

On the white panel I stamped a lady from the Just My Style set and words from the Art De Fleur Vol 2 set. I used a black pen to draw a frame.

Black twine was used as a leash. I made two small cuts, so the leash could go behind the lady's back.

I used a white gel pen to draw a line onto the black card and glued the dog in place with 3D foam tape.


Supplies:
Darkroom Door Sitting Dog Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Just My Style Stamp Sets
Darkroom Door Art De Fleur Vol 2 Stamp Set

Crayons Eclectic Stamp Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, May 03, 2017

Hi stamping folk! It's Teresa here sharing some samples I made with the new Crayons Eclectic Stamp.

I have to admit, I went a little crazy! I guess this stamp just made me happy :) Once I set up my big 12 x 12 Memory Misti, it was just easy to stamp up a few of these crayons in a row so I had a few to colour in. I used Archival Jet Black ink so that I could use water based colouring media without having to worry about the ink smudging. I used Ecoline Brush Marker pens and a water brush to colour, but you could use Distress Markers, Distress Crayons or even the new Scribble Sticks.


For this first sample, I coloured everything using grey and black and then added a pop of colour. I stamped the Crayons onto a colourful piece gel printed paper I had in my stash, then cut out just the one crayon and glued it in place. The sentiment was stamped using the Alphabet Medley stamp set. 

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Alphabet Medley Rubber Stamp Set
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
Waterbrush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner


This next sample is certainly colourful. I chose a bright colour scheme and coloured each crayon. I stamped the sentiment, cut it into strips and mounted each one with black cardstock before adhering to the card front with foam mounting tape. Mounting it up actually allows the eye to peek underneath the words slightly so that the crayons are more visible.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Happy Quote Stamp
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
Waterbrush
Misti stamp positioner


This next sample is another that uses some gel printed paper from my stash. I used only part of the Stand Out Quote stamp.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Stand Out Quote Stamp
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
water brush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner


This next card uses a custom colour combination - I asked the intended recipient for her favourite colours and made the card with these in mind. I love that we can make someone feel special with a handmade card!

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door String Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
water brush
Splatter brush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner


The last card is my favourite - I love when I can use ALL my colours on a project! The spatters add a fun element, and this sentiment from the Wilderness Vol 2 set is perfect for it: 

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Crayons Eclectic Stamp
Darkroom Door Wilderness Vol 2 Rubber Stamp Set
Archival ink Jet Black
Ecoline Brush Marker pens
water brush
Splatter brush
Gel printed paper
Misti stamp positioner

Thanks for looking. I hope you've enjoyed these ideas!

Mini Mason Jar Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Hi stampers, it is Godelieve Tijskens here, showing two cards I made with the new Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp. Loved creating with this stamp!
 


 
Although it is supposed to be a glass jar, on my first card I decided to do something else.
 
 
I started by colouring some smooth watercolorpaper using Distress Oxide Inks on my non-stick craft sheet. The colours I chose are Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade. I let the paper dry completely.
 
 
Next I sponged the flowers using a Layering Stencil, Distress Oxide Wilted Violets and a mini ink blending tool
 
The Mini Mason Jar was stamped twice onto this paper with black Archival ink. I also stamped a butterfly, using Distress Oxide Wilted Violet. Love this ink for stamping crisp images. The lid was stamped onto silver paper, using black ink again.

 
I adhered a piece of mulberry paper in a matching color to the cream card. I glued the jars in place and attached the cut out butterfly. Words from the Bright Blossoms Vol 1 set, stamped with black ink, complete the card.
 
Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp 
Darkroom Door Butterflies Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Bright Blossoms Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set
Distress Oxide Inkpads: Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet
Archival Inkpad: Jet Black
Tim Holtz Mini Layering Stencil THMS075
Mini Ink Blending Tool
 
 
The second card has a painting theme
 
 
I started by coloring a background again, using Distress Inkpads Shabby Shutters and Iced Spruce on a craft sheet. After the paper had dried, I used black Archival Ink to stamp the Mini Mason Jar and the paintbrush from the Artist set.

 
I used a white pencil to add some fine lines, so it looks like the brushes are placed inside the jar.
 
The edges of the Splatter Background stamp were inked with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce to stamp around the jar.  I also inked the Creativity Word Block stamp partly, to stamp next to the jar. The edges were inked with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce and a mini ink blending tool. I chose the words "one of a kind" from the Word Block Stamp, stamped with black ink to attach to the card and completed the card as shown.
 
Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp

Use a piece of scrap white cardstock to mop up the excess ink on the craft sheet to use later. Flick water droplets over the top. Allow to dry.
