Penny Black - Rose Garden (v2)

Hi Everyone

I really loved colouring Penny Black's Rose Garden stamp and here's another card.

Starting with a base of Bazzill Rope Swing (Dotted Swiss), I added Sweetheart, Dusty Pink and Lily White which I die cut using a Lawn Fawn's Quilted Backdrop die and edged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I stamped the Rose Garden on Colour Copy 200gsm card using a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and coloured the image with Copic Markers - E40, E41, E43, E47, RV52, RV55, R37, R17, R27, YR23, Y21, YG63 and YG67.  I cut the image out and then adhered it the centre of the card with mounting tape.

The words 'Wishing you a day...' (Penny Black - Sprinkles & Smiles 30-297) was stamped on Creampuff card and adhere to the card.

I added 'Happy Birthday' from Darkroom Door's - Happy Birthday stamp set (DDRS143) which was stamped on the Dusty Pink and embossed with WOW - Opaque Bright White embossing powder.

I finished the card with a Twine bow in the centre of the flowers.

Have a great day - do some craft!!!

Yellow Gerberas

Hi Everyone

Darkroom Door's latest release includes a beautiful new Photo Stamp - Gerbera (DDPS045) and over the weekend I pulled out my Copics and had some fun colouring these yellow Gerberas in.

My card starts with a base of Bazzill Guacamole, followed by Creampuff and then Kraft card.

Each layer is Distressed and edged with Archival Coffee ink pad.  

On the Kraft card, I stamped Darkroom Door's Happy Birthday Sentiments Stamp (DDSE001) using a Coffee Ink pad.

The Gerbera's were stamped on Colour Copy 200gsm paper with a Memento Toffee Crush ink pad.  This is one of my favourite ink pads when I'm wanting to do no-line colouring as it just blends into the background.

The Copic Markers I used were E31, E35, Y15 and YR24 - just 4 pens!!!

I adhered the Gerbera to the other layers and adhered it to the card with mounting tape.  I also tied two layers of twine to the card and added 'Happy Birthday' from Darkroom Door's - Happy Birthday Stamp Set (DDRS143) - such a great set (Rachel - please bring more out like this - hint, hint).

If you love these stamps, like we do and don't have these in your collection, you'll find them on our website -

Hope you have an amazing day.

Darkroom Door - Timeless Tulips

Hi Everyone

Darkroom Door have always produced beautiful floral stamps and this Collage Stamp - Timeless Tulips (DDCS031) just ticks all the boxes.

On this card, I started with a base of Bazzill Creampuff and added Pear and Pinecone card layers.

I also added a layer of scrapbooking paper, which I added a little Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade so that it matched the Collage image.

I stamped the Timeless Tulips on Colour Copy paper and blended Distress Ink Pads - Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade over it and edged all around with Rusty Hinge and Brushed Corduroy.

I stamped another image and cut out the two Tulips and coloured base of the Tulips with Distress Ink Pads - Scattered Straw and Wild Honey and then adhered them to the main image.

I added some white accents using a White Gelly Roll 10 pen and lastly stamped 'Big Hugs' from Darkroom Door's - Simple Sayings Vol 2 (DDRS172) in the lower right corner which I stamped with Versamark and embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing powder.

Hope you have a great day.

Penny Black - Irish Luck

Hi Everyone

'Irish Luck' (30-538) was released by Penny Black earlier this year and it's taken me a little while to play with him as I kept thinking of him as a St Patrick's Day stamp.

I stamped a couple of Bears out and coloured the hats and vests with Copic Markers W0, W1, W3, W5 and W7.  The Bear was coloured with E50, E31, E35 and E37.

I then played with the shirt, ribbon and flowers, colouring them light pink (R81, and R83) or light green.

Finally, I decided I liked the pink trim best and started making my card.

The card base is Bazzill Creampuff and followed with Pear, Dusty Pink and then added a layer of Kaisercraft Paper.

I cut the Tim Holtz Sizzix Ornate Frame (658720) from Bazzill Thunder card and added the centre from Pear card.

I stamped 'Happy Birthday' from Darkroom Door's Happy Birthday stamp set and embossed it with WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder.  

I then added mounting tape to the back of Irish Luck and adhered him to the centre of the card.

I now love 'Irish Luck' and look forward to playing with him more.
