Darkroom Door Artist Event - Guest Artist

I am excited to be one of the Guest Designers for the Darkroom Door and Helmar Blog Hop - thank you Rachel Greig for inviting me!  I have had such fun creating For my project I have created a Tin of Six Baby Cards, using the Darkroom Door Hello Baby Collection and Helmar products.
There are quite a few photos, so I will keep the chatter to a minimum and just add the products I have used for each card.
Card 1
I have used  the adorable bear from the Hello Baby Collection,layering it onto the Spellbinders™ Labels One , Scalloped Labels One and Decorative Labels One Nestabilities®, along with Fancy Framed Tags Two Shapeabilities® for the sentiment.  My paper is from Teresa Collins, the pearls from Want2Scrap.  The ribbon is Seam Binding.
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots are perfect for popping up your layers, giving that extra dimension.  I have added them under the Teddy Bear and also the sentiment.  One of the great things is you have control of how high your layers are.  The Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots also dries fairly quickly, but you will need to put it aside for a little while - to make sure you do not flatten them while still drying.
Card 2
 is created using Darkroom Door Hello Baby PhotoChips and Hello Baby MontageHelmar Liquid Scrap Dots has also been used to layer the Spellbinders™ Marvelous Squares Nestabilities®.
 Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive is perfect for attaching the Seam Binding Bow to the card - and lives up to it's name - it is so fast, I love that fact.  It also glues the lace, Mulberry Rose and charms beautifully.
 Card 3
The Bootees from the Darkroom Door Hello Baby Collection have been stamped, cut out and popped up using the Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots, onto the Spellbinders™ Asian Accents Shapeabilities®. The background is embossed using the Spellbinders™ Regal M-Bossabilities™. The bling flourish is from Want2Scrap.
Card 4
The adorable photos from the Darkroom Door Hello Baby Photo Montage work beautifully with the Spellbinders™ Snapshot Shapeabilities® By Licensed Designer Donna Salazar. The Words from the Darkroom Door Hello Baby - Wordstrips have been attached using the Helmar Premium Craft Glue and the camera adhered using the Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots.
Card 5
The versatility of the Darkroom Door Hello Baby Collection. The bootees take on such a real look when stamped. They have been popped up onto the Spellbinders™ Vintage Lace Motifs Shapeabilities®, again using the Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots - I love this stuff!!! Recycled lace has been added and the sentiment is from the Hello Baby Boy - Wordstrips and has been adhered to the Spellbinders™ Vintage Lace Accents Shapeabilities®. Finishing off with buttons and Want2Scrap bling.

Card 6
 My last card is created using the Darkroom Door Hello Baby - PhotoChips, that has been layered onto a later from the Spellbinders™ Marvelous Squares Nestabilities®. Photos have been added from the Darkroom Door Hello Baby Photo Montage. Seam binding and a vintage brad finish off this card.
Thank you for visiting today and for making your way through the post.  I hope you are inspired to have a look at the fabulous range of product from Darkroom Door.  I had the honour of meeting Rachel Greig at the Craft Show in Canberra and was greatly inspired by her.  Rachel is an amazing artist and her product is fabulous to use.   Make sure you check out Helmar as well - I am a convert and just love their adhesives - Liquid Scrap Dots has found a permanent home in my Craft Room.   Make sure you check out both Blogs for all the inspiration that is being shared all week for the Artists Event.
