Darkroom Door Stamps Sentiment Strips Cards

Hello friends!  It's Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint here with you today to share a few cards featuring the Darkroom Door Sentiment Strip Stamps.  I made these cards for our local stamp convention as samples for the Topflight Stamps booth.  These sentiment stamps are truly versatile and incredibly fun to play with. 

For this card I featured the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stamp.  I embossed it in navy EP over a sanded metallic kraft core panel, that I splashed with watered inks to achieve a mercury glass effect.  

For the background I embossed the Starry Night Background Stamp in white and spritzed it with water, then added In the Navy Infusions powder to the top of the panel and spritzed with more water, letting it bleed downward.  I finished with a die cut star and some fibers to make a "shooting star" to wish upon. 

I made a few other simple cards to showcase the Sentiment Strips versatility.  Here, I partially stamped a portion of the Thank You Sentiment Stamp with Prism Artic Mist and clear embossed it along the bottom of my panel.  I then stamped the Fun Flowers Background Stamp in Versamark ink and embossed with Aqua EP.  I used the Artic Mist ink pad direct to paper (DTP) onto the panels to add more color.  I just LOVE the texture of the foam on these pads.  It is perfect for DTP techniques...

And this DTP technique might just be the most fun of all!  For this fun card, I clear embossed the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stamp three times on my background.  Then I applied the Prism Ombre Ink Pad in Purples across my card panel repeatedly to make these stripes!  It works a charm!   I stamped a portion of the sentiment in the darkest purple of the ombre pad and clear embossed to make my focal image.  I die cut it and layered on a torn purple background with a row of Diamond Sparkles Gemstones in Pretty Pinks using the Silhouette Pick-Me-Up Tool.

Finally, I did a super simple bookmark or gift bag hanger stamping the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stamp in Versafine and sponging a rainbow with Distress Inks.  You could make dozens of these in an hour and have them on hand as birthday treats for coworkers. 

I hope this has given you some new ideas.  Thanks for joining me, Autumn
