Darkroom Door Sewing Spools Background

..and yet another lovely large background stamp from Darkroom Door. Something sewing themed - I present Sewing Spools:

Yes - I did go to all the trouble of punching each individual spool out with a circle punch. And then I coloured each one and stuck it back in place. And what's more - I plan to do this again and again! Love the effect - so eclectic - reminds me of my own mum's sewing tins full of treasures and treachery (she'd always manage to leave a needle sticking up where you couldn't see it but boy could you feel it!! Ouch!!)

You can find more ideas for this stamp on the Darkroom Door blog. Thanks for stopping by!

Darkroom Door Fishing Net Background

Ooooh - another new lovely background stamp from Darkroom Door - Fishing Net. Love it! Here's my sample:

I just love that this background has some natural form to it - it's not rigid and straight. Lots of character :)

Full details on how I put the card together can be found on the Darkroom Door blog.

Have a great weekend!

Seaside Inchie Background

Ahoy there! I have used the Seaside Inchies set from Darkroom Door as a background on this card:

I used some circle dies and some twine to create a life buoy. The word is from the Whimsical Words set.

It's nice to be able to cater for the men in our a card making sense anyway!

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly birthday card

This card is a collaborative effort (my 9 yo daughter visited the craft room one night during the school holidays and would have just burst if I didn't let her help LOL!):

The sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday set by Darkroom Door, and the beautiful chipboard butterfly is from Your Creative Wings.

The butterfly has been covered with Metallic Melts, an awesome product made by my mate Beck Beattie. The best way to describe it is an embossing enamel with shimmer. I covered the chipboard shape with Versamark ink, sprinkled on the Patina Metallic Melts, heated it with a heat gun until it was melted and while it was still hot, I stamped the Darkroom Door Flourish Texture stamp into it. In typical fashion, the stamp was a little dirty from my last project, so the butterfly ended up with some brown in her wings, but my daughter was just delighted with the result, so I just rolled with it :)

Thanks for looking!
