Tulips Photo Stamp Card Ideas

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, June 17, 2015
Today we are sharing lots of fabulous card ideas using the Tulips Photo Stamp

Michelle Morrison from Michelle's Cards & Stamps has created this beautiful card by colouring the Tulips Photo Stamp with copic markers. The background has been shaded with Distress Inks. 

For this card, Michelle used Distress Markers to colour the tulips. The background was shaded with Distress Inks in this card too. 

I love how this card looks - you wouldn't even know it started from a stamp! Michelle stamped the Tulips Photo Stamp onto cardstock, then covered the tulips with texture paint to create the texture. After it had dried, the image was then coloured with Copic Markers. Here's a close up of the textured details: 

Isn't it beautiful! 

Godelieve Tijskens has also created a few cards to share using the Tulips Photo Stamp. This first one was created by using Distress Markers directly onto the stamp, then spritzing it with water before stamping onto watercolour cardstock. It's a fabulous technique and looks amazing with this stamp! 

If you love using coloured pencils, take a look at this next card where Godelieve has used coloured pencils to shade and colour the stamped image: 

Lastly, here's a different take on the stamp, by cutting out the background of the stamp (around the tulips) and then adhering it to black cardstock, it makes the tulips really stand out! 

As you can see, the Tulips Photo Stamp is very versatile and creates beautiful cards!

Layered Stitched Christmas Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Hi all! Belinda here today! Christmas is fast approaching so today I have two Christmas cards to share with you featuring the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set DDRS122.


I have stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder two Christmas trees and some stars from the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set as well as the Wooden Frame Stamp onto kraft cardstock. I have also embossed the sentiment and some more stars with Stampendous Embossing Tinsel in Vintage Mahogany. All elements have been layered together either with double sided tape or 3D foam and then sprayed and splattered with White Linen Dylusions Ink Spray.
For the second card I wanted to use the Stitched Christmas tree in a different way so I created a banner for the top of the card by cutting off the trunk and turning the trees upside down.

5 ideas using Stitched Christmas Stamps

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Hi everyone, Connie here with a card using Stitched Christmas rubber stamp set! The name alone had me hooked!!!
Love the trees and love the sentiments!!! 
 This is a 6" x 5" card.  I used Wendy Vecchi's new ink, called Fern green by Ranger.
I stamped out both tree images and put them in a little envelope and began to build my card around that.


This a "junkin' find and I used the Stitched Christmas set for the sentiment.
Next I created a Christmas card using the Windmill Photo Stamp with the Stitched Christmas sentiments. I put a Texas Christmas swing on it - hope you like!
 I got back into my scraps of paper to make this card.  It makes me feel like I got something for free. I stamped the windmill out on white cardstock and then inked it up with Tim Holtz's inks by Ranger. I used the brown, green and blue shades.
The tag is stuck in a small envelope and I began to build around that. I also used the Dear Santa Montage. The sentiment is from the Stitched Christmas set. Now this one is a delicate and pretty project. Adding a sentiment to your Christmas crafting! I used the sentiments from Stitched Christmas. It was perfect!


Yes those are bird nests that I have collected. The top one is from our yard and the second one from my son's place in Indiana.  They raise chickens and this one has feathers in it.  
Last but not least, here are a couple more Vintage Inspired Christmas Ornaments:
 I used the Dear Santa Montage sheet and Stitched Christmas for the sentiments. The die is by Sizzix called Picture Wheel. The Santa images, on the Dear Santa Montage, sheet are perfect for this. You will need to trim down a little and then tape or glue them to the back of the picture wheel cut out.
After you have the images in, I backed it with a circle of burlap.  I stamped out the sentiment and added embellishments, to complete the ornaments. These are really fun to make!
I hope you have enjoyed all of these projects! Thanks for stopping by!

Stitched Christmas Fabric Card

Darkroom Door - Monday, October 14, 2013



There are things I can't do without when it comes to creating, first and foremost, would be my scraps, paper or the fabric variety.  I think I may have hoarding tendencies :), because I keep small little snippets, plenty of them, all of them, just in case...




Today's card uses some of my most favorite snippets, all of them fabric.  I used Darkroom Door's Stitched Christmas Rubber Stamp Set for my sweet, tree images and the stitching around the outside of my card.  I added fabric scraps to the center of each tree, and then a bit of machine stitching to create an even more homespun look and feel.




Instead of using paper for my background, I stitched a scrap of muslin to my card base and then added stamped stars using Kraft ink.  I topped each tree with a vintage button, and the center tree with a glass glitter star, and a bit of vintage trim.  


Love at first stamp...that's what is was with the Stitched Christmas stamp set!


Travel Inchies Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Hi everyone! It's Sephi here! I love the new Darkroom Door rubber stamps sets and I was lucky enough to receive the Travel Inchies Rubber Stamp Set. I couldn't resist a vintage/collage look when I settled down to make my samples and I have two cards to share with you.

The first is all about my love of found objects, and I had fun raiding my collections for suitable items: a squashed bottle cap here, an old pen nib there. Oh, and lots of beeswax :-)

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Travel Inchies Rubber Stamp Set
Ink - Distress 
Paper - white, kraft
Card - Bazzill
Embellishments - bottle top, pen nib, shell, postage stamps, vintage ribbon
Other - beeswax, heat tool, water mister bottle

1. Coat the Travel Inchies stamp with Distress inks (use avariety of colours). Mist the stamp with water and gently press it ontowhite paper. When the ink has dried cut fourteen inchies from theimpression.
2. Arrange the inchies on torn kraft paper. Collage over the top with found and vintage objects.
3. Use alphastrips to create the 'explore' sentiment. Melt beeswax over the design with a heat tool.
4. Adhere the kraft paper to black card and then to the card base.

For my second card I dug out my old, neglected watercolour pencils and did a little painting. I also simplified the embellishments - just asimple bird charm - and arranged travel-related wordstrips around the edges of the card......

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Travel Inchies Rubber Stamp Set
Ink - StazOn jet black
Paper - K&Company, white
Card - Bazzill
Embellishments - bird charm
Other - water colour pencils, paintbrush, water mister bottle, matches

1. Stamp the Travel Inchies on white paper using black ink. Watercolour the inchies and then douse the paper with water. Scrunch the paper into a ball, smooth it flat and set aside to dry.
2. Carefully scorch the stamped paper with matches before mounting on torn map paper.
3. Affix a bird charm with glue and attach the Prague wordstrips as shown.
4. Mount on folded card.
