Hand Knitted Stamp Set Ideas

Darkroom Door - Saturday, November 23, 2019

Hi there stampers! Today we have lots of wonderful projects to show you using the Hand Knitted Stamp Set! This set includes some fun sentiments that can be used on cards or tags on your hand knitted items!  



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


This card by Rachel uses the ball of wool stamps on the card front to create a background. The basket of wool stamp was stamped onto specialty stamping paper and coloured in with Distress Markers. 


Connie has used the knitting needle stamp to create a border for her card! A clever idea!! The wool was stamped in different shades of blue and green to create the background, while the sentiments were stamped onto circles and matted with card stock before adhering to the card. 


Some of the stamps fit perfectly onto tags which means you can add them to gifts or your hand knitted projects! 


Connie has created a tag using the basket of wool stamp and coloured it with markers. To read more about Connie’s projects, please visit her blog here.  



Godelieve has created a cute card by combining the Sitting Cat Eclectic Stamp with the basket if wool stamp! The images were coloured with pencils. Read more about this card here.  



This next card by Godelieve shows how you can create an interactive sentiment using two sentiments stamped onto circles and have it opening to see the second sentiment: 


Godelieve also used the Knitting Background Stamp for the background, along with a Tim Holtz Paperdoll. It makes a great card! You can read more about this card here.   


Anneke has created a colourful tag to tie to your projects using the Hand Knitted By stamp along with the knitting needles and wool stamp. Here’s a closer look at the sentiment: 


There’s space on the tag to write your name. Read more about how Anneke created this tag here.  



Here’s another colourful project from Anneke where she has used the Knitting Background and the basket of wool stamp using colourful inks! Anneke has added some buttons to her card too, a great way to use up some of your left over buttons! Read more about this card here.   



Another great way to use the Hand Knitted Stamp Set is to create gift bags! Anneke has used the Close Knit sentiment along with the small needle and wool stamp and layered it up with the Roses Photo Stamp and Inky Script Background Stamp. What a fun way to give a friend a gift (full of wool and knitting supplies perhaps?) To see how Anneke created this gift bag, please visit her blog here.  

As you can see, there are so many ways the Hand Knitted Stamp Set can be used!

Hi there stampers! Today we have lots of wonderful projects to show you using the Merry Mail Stamp Set! This is such a fun stamp set to use for your Christmas projects! It has been designed so you can decorate your envelopes and parcel that go through the mail, but the stamps also look great to make cards, tags and gift wrap with a postage theme! 



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


These decorated envelopes by Rachel show how the Merry Mail stamps can be used to create some mail art! Rachel also used the Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp to create the air mail edges. 


Anneke has created a fun card by stamping different stamps in different ink colours to cover the card front! It’s a great design! Here’s an envelope to go with it: 


Anneke has used the Plaid Background Stamp  to cover most of the envelope then decorated more with the Merry Mail Set. To read more details, please visit Anneke’s blog here.  

Next we have a great way to create gift wrap!   



Anneke has created banners to put on her handmade gift bags and stamped the banner with Christmas Script Texture Stamp. Anneke then decorated some round circles with the Merry Mail Stamp Set. Here’s a closer look:  


Such a great way to create gift wrap! See more details on how they were made here.  



Connie has also created some great projects using the Merry Mail set! These tags would look great hanging from the tree or used on Christmas gifts! They also look great as a display in your home just like Connie has photographed them here. 


Connie has also created a card, using the Circle Set Stencil to create a circle in the background and a sentiment from the Season’s Greetings Stamp Set



Connie has also created a couple of matching envelopes to send the cards in! To read more about Connie’s projects, please visit her blog here.  



Suzz has created a wonderful series of tags and envelopes with the Merry Mail Set. This first tag shows how you can use a light grey ink, like the Archival Shadow Grey ink pad to make a light background of stamped images. Then stamp over the top with a bold red ink. 


For this tag, Suzz used the Star Set Stencil with gold paint and stamped over the top in red ink. 


This is a fun twist on colours by using green and pink inks. Such a great tag! 

Suzz has also created some fun envelopes, incorporating the Star Set Stencil and Starry Night Stencil into some of them. Each one would be a delight to see in your mail box! 





Lastly, here are some ideas for gift cards using the Merry Mail Stamps in the background and embossing over the top with Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder


Suzz has used the Christmas Reindeer Stamps over the top of the Shadow Grey stamping.

Festive Ornaments Stamp Set Ideas

Darkroom Door - Thursday, October 24, 2019

Hi there stampers! The festive season is almost upon us and we’d like to share some card ideas using the Festive Ornaments Stamp Set! This set includes 4 detailed long ornaments along with lots of vertical sentiments that can be used to create cards and projects in many different ways.! 



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


The ornaments in this stamp set are vintage style glass ornaments and have a lot of detail! The best way to show this details is by stamping with an Archival Ink, which is what Suzz has used on this card. Suzz then added little bits of glitter to each bauble to give it a bit of shimmer.  



In this set we have lots of vertical sentiments which are great for using on the edges of your cards, but here’s another great way to use them - by making a complete background! Suzz has stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment all over the base card to create a text pattern. It looks fabulous! Suzz then stamped the reindeer from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set to add over the top.  



For this card Suzz has repeated the same ornament in Plum Archival Ink. The sentiments are from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set. It’s a stunning card! To see more details about all of Suzz’s cards, please visit her blog here.  


Here’s a quick card by Rachel where she has stamped the ornaments in Vermillion Archival Ink and added the curly ribbon at the top. The sentiment on the side shows how you can use up your thin strips of card stock with the vertical sentiments in this set!  

As you can see, there are so many ways the Festive Ornaments Stamp Set can be used! If you’d like to see more projects from this stamp set, check out the Pinterest Board!

Bird Houses Stamp Set Project Ideas + Video

Darkroom Door - Thursday, September 12, 2019

Hi there stampers! Today we have lots of wonderful projects to show you using the Bird Houses Stamp Set! This set was designed by Godelieve Tijskens and includes 4 different styles of bird houses, which can be used on their own or combined with the Bird Life and Garden Birds Stamp Sets



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


This is a tag where Godelieve uses the Woodgrain Texture Stamp to add some texture to the bird house! Very clever!! Godelieve shares a full tutorial on her blog here.  



Here is a Christmas version! This would be great to use on gifts or to hang from your Christmas Tree. See more details here.  



The Bird Houses set includes a pole stamp so you can stand the houses on a pole. Another way to use the poles is to create a fence! Godelieve has used the poles on this card with the Chicken Wire Background Stamp to create a fence :) The other stamps used in this card are Carved Birds Vol 1  & Vol 2, Gardening Vol 2 and a sentiment from the Bright Blossoms Vol 1 stamp set. See more details on Godelieve’s blog here.  

Next we have some ideas from Connie Mercer.  



Connie has combined the Bird Houses with the Fallen Leaves Background Stamp to create a real garden feel! It looks fantastic!! Connie has also used the Film Frame Stamp and Thank You Sentiments Stamp



For these cards, Connie has created a background using the Bird Houses and then one of the Bird Houses as the focal image of the card. A clever way to create continuity in the card design!! 


Connie has created some rustic gift tags that are great to use on presents and gifts!! Connie says the trick is to stamp the bird house on the fold of the yardstick and trim around the image so then it opens to a small card :) 

To read house Connie created all of her projects, please visit her blog here.  


 

Here’s a card by Godelieve where she has combined the Bird Houses with the Bird Life Stamp Set and Abstract 01 Stamp. Godelieve coloured the images with pencils. You can read more about it on her blog here.  




The Bird Houses also look great in art journals! This is a fabulous page by Godelieve where she has used all 4 bird houses against a colourful stencilled and stamped background. Read about it here.  


We also have a video to share from Vicky Papaioannou where she uses the Bird Houses in an art journal page. It’s a beautiful tutorial! Watch here

Bird Life Stamp Set Card Ideas

Darkroom Door - Thursday, August 15, 2019

Hi there stampers! Today we have lots of wonderful projects to show you using the Bird Life Stamp Set! This set was designed by Godelieve Tijskens and includes a bird house, bird bath, nest, branches and 3 cute little birds that can be used together in so many ways! 



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


This is a little booklet created by Godelieve using just one sheet of paper. Since there are so many stamps in the Bird Life set, you can make lots of little scenes to decorate the pages! Godelieve shares a full tutorial on her blog here.    



This card shows how the little birds fit into the bird bath stamp. The background was stencilled using the Short Rectangle, Butterflies, Arty Circles and Wellbeing stencils! See more details here.   


This card shows how you can stamp the branches a few times to make a complete tree! The little birds look great sitting on the branches! See more details on Godelieve’s blog here


Next we have 4 ideas from Suzz Czosek.  


Suzz has combined the Book Stack Photo Stamp with the birds! It’s a great combination and they look so sweet sitting on the different books! 


For this one Suzz used the Coffee Stain Eclectic Stamp and French Script & Chicken Wire Texture Stamps to create a background. Then stamps the branches and bird and layered them on top. Its a beautiful card! 


These are some sweet placards for a table setting at a dinner party! Such a great idea! 


Suzz has created a wire for the little birds to sit on and created a bookmark! Another great idea! You can read more about Suzz’s projects on her blog here.  


Next we have some fabulous cards by Connie Mercer: 



Connie has created a set of cards combining lots of the stamps to use to create backgrounds and then as a main feature image for the cards. Aren’t they pretty! 


Connie has also created an art journal page and combined the Bird Life stamps with the Friends Quote Stamp! She has created a hanging bird box with the bird house stamp in that set too by trimming off the post. 


Our final project to share is a scrapbook page where Connie has used photos of birds splashing around in a bird bath! Perfect stamps to use for this layout! 

You can read all about Connie’s projects on her blog here.
