Star Set Small Stencil Ideas

Darkroom Door - Friday, November 01, 2019

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



This stencil set consists of a star shape stencil and the matching solid shape which can be used as a mask and in lots of other ways. We have lots of projects to share with you showing how this stencil set can be used! 


Belinda has used the Star stencil to create stars for her journal page and traced around them with a water soluble pencil. Belinda has lots of extra photos and close ups on her blog to show all the details, it’s a wonderful project, you can check it out here.   


Here are some card ideas by Godelieve: 


Godelieve used Distress Oxide Sprays  over the star solid shape to create one background and then pressed the inked up star shape onto another card front. A great way to create two cards from one inking! You can read more about it here on Godelieve’s blog.   


For this card, Godelieve created a layered show star, by sponging two different colours of Distress Oxide Inks and slightly offsetting the stencil to reveal both colours. A great way to ad more depth to the stencil! Godelieve also used the Starry Night stencil for the background. Read more about this card here.  


Another beautiful card by Godelieve, this time using Pure Shine Dylusions Shimmer Spray over the solid star stencil, and then the Christmas Script Texture Stamp is stamped over the top with Thistle Archival Ink. A warm and pretty effect! Read more about how Godelieve created this card here.  

Next we have some ideas from Connie: 


Connie has created a wonderful set of star ornaments using the stencil as a template to cut from and for spraying shimmer sprays through. Its a fabulous way to create unique ornaments for your tree! Connie has also used the Star Set Stencil in this art journal page below. See how Connie created these projects here.  


Next we have some beautiful projects by Suzz: 


Suzz has used the star stencil on fabric with embossing paste! It created such a beautiful texture! Suzz also used a variety of gold, brown and ivory ink sprays to add colour to the linen. Here’s another card using the star stencil on linen fabric:


Suzz has used hessian/burlap behind the linen to give it even more texture and used the Sheet Music Texture Stamp and Christmas Reindeer stamps to stamp around the star. 


For these new few cards, Suzz has sponged yellow ink through the star stencil on white backgrounds and added stamping with Cobalt ink. 


Suzz used the Sunshine stencil over the star stencil to sponge big sun rays over the star. A great idea!! 


This card has a fun mail art theme with the use of the postage marks from the Christmas Reindeer stamp set

These are some beautiful card ideas from Suzz and to read the full detailed instruction for each card, please visit Suzz’s blog here.  


One last card idea from Rachel using the star stencil with Distress Inks and overlaying them side by side to create two stars. You can put the mask stencil over a sponged star while you use the open star stencil to sponge through to create your second star. Very quick card and easy to create a lot for Christmas! The sentiment is from the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set

Great Friend Small Stamp Card Ideas

Darkroom Door - Sunday, October 27, 2019

Hi there! We hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Today we’d like to share some card ideas using the Great Friend Small Stamp! This is a fun sized sentiment, perfect for tags and cards.: 



Here’s a few different ways it can be used:


Rachel has stamped the Great Friend stamp with Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Fossilized Amber Distress Archival Inks, and stamped a small tag with the Flower Garden Background Stamp using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Added these to a spotted Kraft card using foam adhesive for some dimension. A fun way to layer up the card! 

Here are some more ideas by Godelieve: 


Godelieve has sponged Fossilized Amber and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks over the Heart Stencil to create the background. Then stamped the Great Friend Small Stamp in Archival Jet Black ink over the top. The Torn Text Texture Stamp was used around the edges. To see more details about this card, visit Godelieve’s blog here.  


For this card, Godelieve has created a one layer card using the Small Circles & Carved Flowers Stencils, then stamping the Great Friend Small Stamp over the top. It looks fabulous and is a great way to make quick cards! Read more about this card here. 

Connie has some cards to share too: 


Connie has used the Circle Stencil on the background and stamped the Great Friend Small Stamp over the top. Another great way to use the stencils with these Small Stamps!  


For these cards, Connie used the flower head to create a background pattern by masking off the stems and stamping the petals all over the card stock. Then stamped the sentiment over the top. For the card on the right, Connie layered up the flower to highlight it and create more depth. Beautiful cards!! You can read more about these cards on Connie’s blog here.


These are just a few ideas to show how this stamp can be used! If you’d like to see more Small Stamp projects, check out our Small Stamps Pinterest Board!

Hand Stamped Small Stamp Ideas

Darkroom Door - Thursday, August 22, 2019

Hi there! We have recently released a new series of stamps called Small Stamps! These stamps are just a bit smaller than our Quote Stamps, and each Small Stamp has a fun element added into the design. We have released 4 new ones and today we’d like to share some ideas using the Hand Stamped Small Stamp



This is a stamp that can be used on your projects where you can sign the dotted line to say who it stamped by. It could be used on the back of cards, on tags that are attached to projects or on a gift box of cards like Godelieve has made here: 


Godelieve has used the Nature Walk, Grevilleas and Garden Greetings Stamps to decorate the front of the box. See more photos and details on Godelieve’s blog here. 

Here’s what the stamp looks like when stamped on the back of some cards: 


You can see there’s lots of room to sign your name. You could use your full name or just your first name. 


Here’s another great idea, to use it as a design element for the front of your cards: 


This is a similar card design to the handmade box Godelieve had made above. You can read the full tutorial here.

Hi there! We have recently released a new series of stamps called Small Stamps! These stamps are just a bit smaller than our Quote Stamps, and each Small Stamp has a fun element added into the design. We have released 4 new ones and today we’d like to share some card ideas using the Thank You Small Stamp: 



Here are some great card ideas from Godelieve Tijskens: 


The Thank You stamp looks wonderful stamped and embossed over a colourful background. Godelieve used flower stamps from the Nature Walk and Grevilleas stamp sets to stamp the background. See more photos and details on Godelieve’s blog here

 

For this card Godelieve has created am ombre background, then die cut a circle from the centre and turned it around to create a positive/negative effect. The Thank You Small Stamp was stamped inside the circle. A clever way to add more interest to your cards! See more details here.

Birthday Small Stamp Card Ideas

Darkroom Door - Monday, July 08, 2019

Hi there! We have recently released a new series of stamps called Small Stamps! These stamps are just a bit smaller than our Quote Stamps, and each Small Stamp has a fun element added into the design. We have released 4 new ones and today we’d like to share some card ideas using the Birthday Small Stamp



Here are some great card ideas from Suzanne Czosek: 


On this card, Suzz has used watercolour markers to ink up the Candles Eclectic Stamp and the Birthday Small Stamp so they co-ordinate. Love how the birthday sentiment is offset to the bottom left corner. 


For this card Suzz masked off the balloon and created a new balloon and used it with the little bird from the Bird Life Stamp Set! Such a great idea! 


Love the ombre stamping for the sentiment and the background, where Suzz used the fireworks stamp from the Celebration Stamp Set


For Suzz’s final card, she has used watercolour stamping for the Birthday sentiment, Daisy Eclectic Stamp, French Script Texture Stamp and the little butterflies from the Wings Stamp Set. It creates a beautiful soft card. 

To read more information on how Suzz created these cards, please visit her blog here.   

 
Next we have some wonderful cards by Anneke De Clerck to share. If you want to create some colourful backgrounds, or already have some ready to use, it’s so easy to use this stamp over the top! 


Anneke has used a combination of the Large Circles Stencil, Arty Circles Stencil and various stamps to create the colourful backgrounds! Here’s a closer look: 



To see how Anneke created these cards, check out her blog post here.  


Here’s another great card from Anneke: 


This time Anneke used the Checkered Background Stamp, Abstract 2 Stamp and the Tall Flowers stamps. It’s a bright combination with the pink and black inks! See more photos and details on Anneke’s blog here.  


This is a quick and easy way to create a colourful birthday card by stamping the sentiment with different ink colours to create a full pattern! Another great idea from Anneke! Read more on her blog here.  


As the Birthday Small Stamp is a square shape, it also looks great on square cards! Check out this card by Godelieve: 


Godelieve used the Arty Circles Stencil and Abstract 1 Stamps to create the colourful background. More photos and details can be found on her blog here.
