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!
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.
Hi there stampers! It's time to bring you a little sunshine... so today we are sharing projects using the Sunshine Background Stamp!
This is a fun and bold stamp! But don't be fooled by the black on the header card... this stamp can be very subtle when used with soft inks just like this:
This is a super quick and fun card to make! Start by folded a light yellow or cream piece of cardstock as your card base. Then stamp the Sunshine Background using Archival Chrome Yellow inkpad. The light and dark areas of the stamp will now show up as different tones of yellow, giving it three different shades. Fun!! The hello circle is from the Simply Circles stamp set. Punched out using a circle scallop punch and layered into the card using 3D adhesive to make it pop up.
Here's what Godelieve has created:
Here's another idea:
Next up is Hels with a fabbo canvas!
Ink - StazOn timber brown, Brilliance graphite black
Paper - Blue Cardigan, K&Company
Card - Bazzill
Embellishments - mulberry paper roses
Other - acetate, sandpaper, craft knife, glue, mounting foam
1. Stamp the crackle background on acetate using brown ink.
2. Stamp the window frame on cream card using black ink. Use a craft knife to cut out the individual panes and affix the stamped acetate behind the window. Tear a few holes in the acetate "glass".
3. Adhere a Love Letters photochip behind the window frame and then attach it to torn patterned paper using mounting foam. Glue flowers along the window sill and add the Love Letters wordstrips.
4. Finish by layering on a second piece of patterned paper and then on the green card front.

I also made two cards, which have a more vintage look:
The Bright Blossom flowers fit so well inside the Regal Frame. The frame was stamped with Archival Coffee ink on cream cardstock, cut out and inked a bit. A sentiment from Bright Blossoms was stamped on a tattered banner and stapled to the card.
The second card:
