Cogs Texture Stamp Ideas

Darkroom Door - Thursday, December 19, 2019

Hi there! Today we’d like to share some ideas using the Cogs Texture Stamp! This is a great stamp for adding text layers to your projects! 



This is a great stamp for adding an industrial look to your project! This stamp can be used to add stamped layers to your backgrounds or used as a focal point for your project. Let’s take a look at a few card and tag ideas:  


For this card Rachel stamped the Time Machine Quote Stamp in the centre of the yardstick using Archival Jet Black ink, then stamped around the quote using the Cogs Texture Stamp and clock stamps from the Tick Tock Stamp Set. To create the light stamping, Rachel used Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Ink. Then Rachel stamped the Cogs Texture Stamp in Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink and embossed with Hammered Mixed Media Embossing Powder to give it a rusty textured finish. 

Here’s a great tag idea from Anna-Karin: 


Anna-Karin has created a stunning tag with lots of layers including the Cogs Texture Stamp! The Cogs were embossed using Copper Embossing Powder and it really makes them stand out. To see how Anna-Karin created this tag, please visit her blog here.   


For this card, Rachel created a background with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks, then stamped a quote from the Tick Tock Stamp Set with Archival Jet Black ink. Next, Rachel stamped the Cogs Texture Stamp on the left side with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then using a mask over the first set of cogs, repeat the stamping and embossing again underneath to create a full border along the left side. Adhere to black card stock and onto a folded Kraft card. 

These are just a few ideas to show how this stamp can be used on your cards and for journals and other projects! If you’d like to see more Texture Stamp projects, check out our Texture Stamps Pinterest Board!

Hi there stampers! Today we have lots of wonderful projects to show you using the Buzzing Bees Stamp Set! This set includes bees, flowers, honeycomb and some punt sentiments that are fun to use for your cards and projects!  



Let’s take a look at how these stamps can be used: 


For this card, Rachel stamped the sentiment onto card stock and punched out with a 2” circle punch. The bees were stamped and trimmed with scissors. The Honeycomb Background Stamp was stamped with Buttercup Archival Ink and sprayed over the top lightly with Pure Sunshine Dylusions Ink Spray and Shimmer Spray


Connie has also combined the Buzzing Bees Stamp Set with the Honeycomb Background Stamp. Here is her second card:


Connie has also used the Carved Leaves Stamp Set to add some extra foliage. You can read more about Connie’s cards here.  


Anna-Karin has created a beautiful art journal page using the Buzzing Bees Stamp Set! Look at all that texture! Read the full tutorial here



Godelieve has created a sweet card by stamping with Distress Markers. Read more about this card here.  



This next project by Godelieve shows how you can use the Buzzing Bees Stamp Set with photos in a planner! It’s a stunning project and works so well with the photograph of Godelieve’s insect hotel in her garden! What a great idea!


Here’s a closer look so you can see all the little stamped bees. You can read more about this project here.  



This next project by Godelieve is in a black and white theme and includes a tag inside a card.  


A fun way to add an interactive element to your card! Read more about how this was created here.  



Belinda has created a couple of colourful cards using the Buzzing Bees Stamp Set with the Watery Washes Stamp Set and Boxes 6up Frame Stamp! They are great to mix with the Buzzing Bees!


Belinda used Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Inks to create the fabulous colours on her cards! They work so well with these stamps!! 


Here’s an art journal page from Belinda using the Buzzing Bees with an assortment of other stamps! Its great how stamps can be combined together to create a fun page like this! You can read more about this art journal page and Belinda’s cards on her blog here.

Reindeer Set Small Stencil Ideas

Darkroom Door - Monday, December 09, 2019

Hi there! Today we are sharing lots of different ways to use the new Reindeer Set Small Stencil!  



This stencil set consists of a reindeer shape stencil and the matching solid shape which can be used as a mask and in lots of other ways. The reindeer can be used facing left or right, depending on what suits your project! We have lots of projects to share with you showing how this stencil set can be used! 


To start with, here’s a really simple and effective idea by Rachel, using Distress Inks to sponge through the stencil. Rachel has used Brushed Corduroy and Ground Espresso Distress Inks. Stamp a sentiment from the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set underneath and add a little red bling to the nose if you’d like it to be Rudolf :) 

Here are some ideas by Connie: 


Connie has used Viva Decor modelling paste through the stencil for this first card then stamped some elements from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set.  


For this card Connie used Bead Glitter Gel by Faber-Castell. It gives such a beautiful effect! You can read more about Connie’s projects here


Anna-Karin has created a winter wonderland using the reindeer stencil with texture paste and Distress Mica Flakes! It’s a beautiful scene. You can read the full tutorial on Anna-Karin’s blog here


Christmas doesn’t always have to be traditional colours either, here’s a card by Godelieve using a black and white theme. The white sponging looks really frosty against the black background! See more about this card here


Godelieve used foil for this card which makes the reindeer look glittery when you move it in the light! Read more here.  


Anneke created this card by sponging dark blue paint through the reindeer stencil and after it dried, she placed the reindeer mask over the reindeer, then sponged white paint through the Dots stencil to create the background. The smaller stamps are from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set. Read more here.  


It’s really easy to create a winter scene with the stencil and Distress Ink. Anneke used a piece of torn scrap paper to put across the bottom of the card, then placed the reindeer mask in place and sponged blue Distress Inks for the sky. Once the sky is done, swap the stencils around so you can sponge the reindeer shape. To read more about this card, visit Anneke’s blog here.  


If you love gel printing or have some spare gel printed backgrounds, here are some great card ideas! Anneke has used gel prints for the backgrounds for these cards and stamped over the top using a sentiment from Yuletide Greetings Stamp Set. For the reindeer, Anneke sponged embossing ink through the stencil and embossed with white embossing powder. It creates a lovely texture! To read more about these cards, visit Anneke’s blog here.
