Scissors Eclectic Stamp by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!
I'm creating with the newly released Scissors Eclectic Stamp
 by Darkroom Door.  It is so cute!!!!  I love the vintage look
and the size.


The first card set~

1. Use the Sewing Spools background stamp to create the background for the card.  Stamp out
and add color using Distress Oxide ink.  I watered the ink down and ran the stamped image through the ink.  Just adding ink in random spots.
2. Cut the background image in half, giving you two backgrounds, for two cards.
3. Stamp the scissors twice, with Archival/Jet Black ink, and cut out.
4. Cover the scissors image with craft glaze and let dry. It will look like a 3D sticker.
5.Sew the scissor image, to the center of the card, at the handles and where the blades come together.
I kept it simple just an X stitch on both places.
6. Stamp small stars (Darkroom Door) and cut out.
7. Run the hearts through the Distress Oxide ink.
8. Add texture with the Diamond Stencil by Darkroom Door.
9. Mat the card front to coordinating cardstock.
10. Mat to a folded card base.
11. Add the sentiment or a word.
12. Splatter with black ink.

Second card~

1. Create the background from the Handwriting set by Darkroom Door.  Stamp on gray
cardstock with Archival / Jet Black ink.
2. Stamp the pen with Distress Oxide/ Black ink and emboss with a clear coat embossing
powder.  Then trim out.
3. Do the same thing with the scissors image.  Stamp with Distress Oxide/ Gray ink and emboss with a clear coat embossing powder.  Then trim out.
4. Mat the handwriting background on black cardstock and then again on white cardstock.
Adhere to a folded Gray card.
5. Attach the pen and scissors to the card front.  Add stickers and sentiment.
6. Stamp the top sticker with numbers from the Handwriting set.  The sentiment is from the Journey Word stamp by Darkroom Door.7. Splatter with black ink.

Third card~

1. Create the background using the Gazette Background stamp by Darkroom Door.  I used Archival / Jet Black ink.  Trim out.
2. Adhere to a navy or black folded card.
3. Stamp the Postage Stamp Frame with Archival ink/ Potting Soil and trim out.
4. Stamp the Texture/Plaid stamp in the center of the frame.
5. Stamp the Scissors and the Needle and Thread and trim out.

6. Add to card front.
7. Stamp sentiment (Thank You Sentiment stamps) and adhere to card front.
8. Add Postage Frame with dimensional adhesive.
9. Add twine.
10. Splatter with black ink.
