Vintage Label Inspiration from Darkroom Door


Today I’d like to share with you a trio of cards I have created using the Darkroom Door Vintage Label Frame stamp. I have quite a collection of Frame Stamps from Darkroom Door and find they are designed to work beautifully with many other images in the collection. Each will accommodate a number of the Quote and Eclectic stamp images and they are great to layer with stamped images and ephemera as I have done for this trio of cards.

First off, I’d like to share this simple card featuring the Darkroom Door Vintage Label Frame stamp and images from the Home Sweet Home set. I stamped the quote and houses onto some neutral coloured patterned paper and fussy cut before layering over the Darkroom Door Vintage Label Frame stamp. A few brads, some extra patterned paper as layers and the card was complete.

I love to layer stamped elements over the edge of other pieces, and I’ve used that technique for this card. I had stamped the Darkroom Door Vintage Label Frame stamp over a background made using Distress & Distress Oxide Inks and tore one of the longer sides to give the card extra texture. The feathers come from Darkroom Door Feathers stamp set

and were stamped using Ranger Wendy Vecchi Make Art ink then fussy cut. A stamped and layered greeting from Darkroom Door Happy Birthday stamp set was a finishing touch.

There is something about butterflies mixed with shimmery backgrounds that brings out the happy. For this card, I stamped the Darkroom Door Vintage Label Frame image over a background created with Dylusions Shimmer Sprays. A trio of butterflies from Darkroom Door Fine Butterflies stamp set was stamped onto watercolour card using Ranger Archival black ink and coloured with Ecoline Markers. They layered beautifully with the frame stamp and a greeting from Darkroom Door Birthday Word Block stamp.
