Flimstrip/Ocean Life by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!!
I have a couple cards to share using the newly
released Filmstrip/Ocean Life by Darkroom Door. 



The first card is showing how it can be used as an
awesome background stamp. 

The Filmstrip is stamped 3 times on a stamping platform (Misti). I do this so 
I can re-stamp to get a good dark border on the Filmstrip image.
The strips are colored with Distress Oxide inks and then cut to make a wonky
background. The Frame/Filmstrip stamp is used to showcase the
Fish and Seahorse.


The second card is created with distress Oxide inks to create
a ocean background.  I used the Arty circles stencil to create
the bubbles.  The Filmstrip is colored with Distress Oxide inks
and adhered to front of card.  The fish are from the Under The Sea set
by Darkroom Door. All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Products used: Darkroom Door: Filmstrip/Ocean Life
Under The Sea, Tropical Island, Filmstrip Frame and Arty Circles/small
 stencil.
other: Misti, Distress Oxide, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Joyful Christmas by Darkroom Door~

 Hi guys!
I'm creating with Joyful Christmas by Darkroom Door
and I love it!! Such a jolly fun set! 


I love the Santa, so retro!!! Love the black and white version.

I started with stencils to create the background for the
cards.  Distress Oxide and Archival ink is what was used
for color.

The Santa is stamped with Archival/Jet Black and then trimmed
out and adhered to card front.  The numbers are stamped using
Distress Oxide.  The card is sprinkled with water to give
the background a distressed look.

The Christmas Tree is stenciled on with the Christmas
Tree set/sm. stencil. I used Distress Oxide for the tree
and then sprinkled with water for the distressed look.

Products used:
Darkroom Door: Joyful Christmas, Lots of Labels, Sketchy Stars,
Mesh stencil/lrg., Brick Wall stencil/sm., and
Christmas Tree set stencil /sm.

Christmas Bush with Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!
I'm creating with the new set by Darkroom Door called 
Christmas Bush!



This set would be great using the traditional colors of
Christmas or using the stamps like a silhouette image.
I have an example of both~


I started with background stamps on white cardstock for
both cards. A great starting place!

This card was created with two inks, Distress Oxide and Archival
Jet Black. Very simple and festive.  I used a stamping platform
on this one, so I could re-stamp, to insure a good strong
 black impression.

On this one I used the small ink pads by Ranger so I 
could get ink where I wanted and didn't want :):) ~ I
only have a few small inks but did have the colors I needed
.

Products used:
Darkroom Door: Christmas Bush, Christmas Script BG, Torn Text BG,
Lots of Labels, Christmas Reindeer, Filmstrip.
other: Ranger: Archival, Distress Oxide ink.

Gerbera Daisy Stamps by Darkroom Door~

 Hi guys!!

Today I'm sharing cards made with the Gerbera Daisy
set by Darkroom Door.  Very cool set!!!!


I created two cards with a mixed media vibe.


The background is colored with Distress Oxide ink.  All
of the elements are colored with Distress Oxide. Archival ink
is used to stamp the images.  The sentiment is stamped on top
of the Gerbera Daisy.  Very easy and striking card!!


The same process was used to create this card. The Distress Oxide
 inks are great watercolors.  One of my favorite ways to use
them.

Grunge Marks and Brick Wall stencil small.
Other: Distress Oxide inks, Archival inks, acrylic paint,

Sketched Alphabet by Darkroom Door~

 Hi guys!
I have more Darkroom Door to share with you!!!
I'm showcasing Sketched Alphabet.  I think you will 
love this set!!!

When I trimmed out this set I decided to keep the
stamps in strips.  I may cut each letter out separately
at a later date.  My vision was using this set as a background.
With that said here is my first card~


The stamps were stamped in strips.  The background, along with the
letters, are colored with Distress Oxide ink.  The typewriter is stamped with 
Archival ink and colored with Distress Oxide ink.  It is them trimmed out. 
The same process was used with the pencil stamp.  Sketchy Stars are
 added along with the sentiment.

Even though the stamps are in strips, they worked great for
this design.  I stamped the letters, trimmed then out , colored
 and then adhered to the card front.  The leaves are stamped
over the mixed media background.  Sketchy Stars were added for
excitement! Being HOME is exciting!!

Products used: Sketched Alphabet, Garden birds, Carved Leaves,
Bird Life. Typewriter, Spiral Notebook, Pencils, Sketchy Stars.
Other: Distress Oxide, Archival ink, TH idea-ology/Big Chat.
