Three cards using the new Grid/Texture stamp by Darkroom Door~

Hi, Connie here with a couple of cards using the Texture: Grid stamp by Darkroom Door.  My inspiration for this card was I wanted to include the 6 Up Stencil
in the design.  This is what I came up with~

Stamp the Frame Boxes 6 up on white cardstock.  Line up the 6 Up Stencil over the lines.  Using the Texture: Grid stamp, add the image to the inside of each square.
One tip, keep the Grid Stamp straight, makes a difference if you want the grids to be uniform.  Stamp the carved birds into each grid square.  Leaving one open
for the sentiment.  Mat on red cardstock and then the yellow card base.

Stamp sentiment on white cardstock and trim out. Adhere to empty square using foam squares, for added dimension.
Speckle with black ink or paint.  Easy and so cute!!!

Supply List:
Darkroom Door: Texture: Grid, Frame Boxes 6 Up, Brushed Sentiments, Carved Birds Vol. 1 & 2.
Darkroom Door: Stencil: 6 Up
Ink: Archival: Fern Green, Cobalt, Saffron, Red Geranium and Jet Black.

The next card is using some of the same stamp sets, just in a different way.  

Spray the front of the card base with Dylusions Ink Spray.  Dab off excess ink and let dry or use heat tool to speed up
drying time.  Stamp the Texture: Grid stamp in the center of the card.  Stamp the carved birds in a stacked position.
Stamp sentiment on white cardstock and trim out.  Adhere between Carved Birds.  This a go to style for me.  Super fast
card to create when you don't have much time.  Speckle with black ink.

Supply List:
Darkroom Door: Texture: Grid, Carved Birds Vol. 2, All Occasions.
Ink: Archival: Jet Black, Cobalt and Red Geranium.  Dylusions Ink Spray: Lemon Zest

And one more~

Using two diffrent colors of Archival ink and the Polka Dots Stencil by Darkroom Door, create a background for the card base.
Stamp leaves randomly around the card front.  Stamp the Texture: Grid in the center of the card.
Stamp one of the large Garden Birds, on white cardstock, and trim out.  Shade the Garden Bird with Archival inks.

Stamp the sentiments, on a practice stamping of the Grid image.  Trim out and adhere with foam squares,
for added dimension.  Speckle with black ink or paint.
