Hi! It's Melissa Phillips here with a card to share! Be still my heart...the Edwardian Ladies Collage Stamp from Darkroom Door is breathtaking! I was so excited to get my hands on it and for today's card, I die cut an oval from cream cardstock and then stamped it with the Edwardian Ladies stamp which resulted in a die cut showing just a portion of the image. I love the vintage feel and all of the incredible details.
I wanted the image to appear that it may have been snipped out of an old ad or newspaper, so I used black ink. I layered this image over another die cut and used the French Script Background Stamp as my base.
My sentiment comes from the Venetian Wordstrip and with just a few buttons and flowers, this lovely image takes center stage.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
What a treat we have for you today! We are sharing projects using the Butterfly Post Collage Stamp:
Our Creative Team have made some absolutely gorgeous projects with this stamp! Let's take a look:
This stunning card was created by Suzanne Czosek.
Details from Suzz: This card was a quick and easy card as the stamp provides the most beautiful set of images already laid out in a way to quickly create a card. I stamped the image using black water resistant ink on white cardstock.
Details from Anna-Karin: The butterflies are so pretty and script and postal elements are always a favourite of mine. Use all the squares or just one, lots of possibilities. I made two cards.
For the first card, I stamped the Butterfly Post with Archival Jet Black ink on a piece of watercolour paper that had been painted with different circles in blue, yellow and green. A collage stamp like the Butterfly Post often looks great on top of such randomly coloured backgrounds. Two of the butterflies were stamped a second time, on Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art Modeling Film, cut out, heated with my heat gun, and shaped to form dimensional butterflies. They were stapled to the main panel.
On the second card, I stamped the Butterfly Post on watercolour paper with Archival Jet Black ink, which is waterproof, something that is necessary when you plan to use water. I used a paint brush dipped in water to pick up colours from Faber-Castell Gelatos and painted the butterflies pink and purple. For the background, I just painted yellow in a random manner. The sentiment comes from the All Occasions set. The background is embossed and sanded Core'dinations cardstock and I layered some cheesecloth in between the butterfly panel and the background.
Supplies for both cards: Darkroom Door products: Stamps: Butterfly Post Collage Stamp, All Occasions Other products: Surface: Core'dinations Distress Color-Core cardstock; Daler & Rowney watercolour paper; Wendy Vecchi Stamper's Anonymous Clearly for Art Modeling Film Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink; Stazon Jet Black Paint: Daler & Rowney watercolours; Faber-Castell Gelato: Margarita, Lavender, Grape, Guava, Bubble Gum Embossing folder: Sizzix: Eiffel Tower & French Script, Distressed Frame & Postal Embellishments: lace trim; pearls; cheesecloth; twine
Melissa Phillips has created a beautiful soft card:
Details from Melissa: Today's project uses my newest favorite stamp from Darkroom Door, the Butterfly Post Collage Stamp. It's simply sweet and enchanting and so much fun to stamp with. I began with a base layer of Kraft cardstock and then stamped my image using watermark ink. I then coated the images with two colors of embossing powder, Zing Blush and Zing Powder and just love the soft but detailed results.
Can you see why I love this stamp? It's so inspiring and appeals to my shabby, vintage, girlie-girl heart. :)
I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful images, so I didn't add too much besides a burlap flower, ribbon, heart, and a sentiment snipped from the Venetian Wordstrip.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful day!
Details from Susie: The Edwardian Ladies collage stamp by Darkroom Door is a delight to work with! I stamped the image directly onto a white shipping tag with Versafine Onxy Black ink, heat set it and then coloured the image with Distress Makers and an Aquash brush to create a watercolour effect. Then it was simply a matter of adding lovely layers of vintage paper, fabrics, lace, washi tape and some gorgeous velvet flowers.
Connie Mercer has used the Edwardian Ladies on a scrapbook page:
Teresa Abajo has created a stunning card:
Details from Teresa: This stamp is so so very vintage! It looks like an ad out of an old French newspaper. I have coloured the ladies' dresses with my Old Paper Distress Marker. The frame itself is just divine - here I have added some liquid pearls, and I'm sure it's going to come in handy around other vintage images too.
Hope you've enjoyed going back in time today!
Here's another take on it:
This time I stamped the image over a Distress Ink background. The sentiment once again comes from the Christmas Reindeer set.
Marjie Kemper used the Jolly Santa stamp and the Sizzix Snow Flurries texture fade to create this wintery tag. Marjie cut the tag from white cardstock using the Sizzix Tag & Bookplates die. Next she added texture with the Snow Flurries texture fade, running it through the machine twice to cover the entire tag.
She stamped the Jolly Santa and added some of the Snow Flurries around the edges by carefully positioning the stamped image in the Texture Fade, one snowflake at a time.
Here the reverse side ~ she ended up with Snow Flurries just around the Santa image, and not on top of him.
Layers of Distress Inks build up the background.
I used Distress Markers to color Santa and his bag. Some twine and plastic snowflake bits finish it off. Darkroom Door Products: Jolly Santa Sizzix Products: Tag & Bookplates Die and Snow Flurries Texture Fade
Sephi has created some great cards here:
1. Stamp the Jolly Santa twice on kraft card using copper ink. Fussy-cut the Santa from the second impression and attach it the first with mounting foam.
2. Affix patterned paper and the Jolly Santa to the card front. Glue on tinsel, a ribbon bow, and a timber star.
3. Adhere the sentiment from the Dear Santa wordstrips.
Wordstrips: Dear Santa
Ink - Brilliance cosmic copper
Paper - Basic Grey
Card - Bazzill
Embellishments - tinsel, ribbon, timber star cut-out
Other - mounting foam
Hey there stampers! Today we have lots of great projects to share with you using the Mr Penny Farthing Collage Stamp:
I stamped the Mr. Penny Farthing stamp on a Distress ink background with black ink. On the green background I used DDBS031 Crackle and DDRS062 Steampunk. I sponged the edges brown (Distress ink Vintage Photo) to create a vintage look.
Godelieve has created an altered book cover:
Hels has also created a vintage project... here are the details from Hels: Isn't he a handsome chap? I love this collage style stamp... there's enough going on in the background that it is interesting without overpowering the image of Mr Farthing.
Aren't all these projects amazing! Hope they have inspired you! Thanks for dropping by here today.
Marjie Kemper applied Distress Inks to the Pressed Flowers Collage stamp with an Ink Blending tool, using a post-it 'mask' to shield the postmark portion of the stamp.
Sephi has some lovely projects to share with us...
Hels has also been having fun with this stamp! Check out her wonderful projects:
Hi there stampers! Are you ready for a little vintage? The Creative Team have been busy creating new projects with the Henry & Harriet Collage Stamp:
This is one of the new Collage Stamps recently released at Darkroom Door. The Collage Stamps are a real mixture of styles, all created using different elements to make up the complete design. This Henry & Harriet stamp just ooozes vintage... and the Creative Team took it to a whole new level. Let's see what they created...
First up is a couple of cards from Suzanne:
Details from Suzz: I love that the new DarkRoom Door collage stamp is called Henry and Harriet! They are posed for their portrait and they look so lovely in their finery.
Liesbeth has created a couple of stunning cards and tag...
Details from Liesbeth: I love this new Collage Stamp DDCS007 Henry & Harriet !! It doesn't need very much to create a nice card. Just the stamp and some color is enough !
Details from Anna-Karin: It is such a lovely stamp, the image is fabulous and I love the script in the background!
I also made a tag, where almost everything is aged with a mix of walnut ink. It gives the look of a really old and worn photo. Henry & Harriet were stamped with Archival Jet Black ink. I stamped a sentiment from Love Letters Vol. 2 on a die cut label, leaving out the large 'love' since there wasn't space for it, and instead replacing it with a Chit Chat sticker. The hearts were inked with Barn Door and coated with Crackle Accents. Happy stamping!!

Hope you enjoyed these ideas!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Here's a few cards by Liesbeth:
Details from Liesbeth: I stamped with Big & Juicy inks and overstamped with black Memories ink.
The first card is a little different: I punched a 1 "inch square in a piece of transpatent sheet, used that as a mask and stamped the squares one by one. Other stamps used: DDRS090 Discover and DDRS077 Sail Away.
Using Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed Distress Inks from Ranger to color the stamp, she first pressed the ink pads directly onto the stamp and then used ink blending tools to blend the colors and soften any straight lines from the ink pads themselves.
A light spritz of water on top of the ink leads to watercolor stamping.
Here's what the tag looked like before Marjie brought in Mr. Bright Idea and our Triangles Background stamp.
Hope you've enjoyed todays ideas! We'd love to know what you'd like to create with the Shadow 12up Frame Stamp! Let us know in the comments, we'd love to hear from you :)
