Coffee Loving Cardmakers Guest Designer

 
Hi friends!  I'm slowly getting caught up with preparing my catch up posts.  Today I wanted to share my latest guest designer projects for my September posts with Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  If you've followed me for any length of time, you will know how much I enjoy participating in the CLC challenges.  What an honor to be able to join the team as a guest!  I have to say the card above is one of my favorites from this month.  You can find the full post HERE with all of the details. 


The next card must be my second favorite, shared HERE.  I used the Darkroom Door Teacups stamp on the foreground, layered over a background made with the Darkroom Door Fancy Flourish stamp using Distress Inks and Oxides.
 

This stamp can be found at Topflight Stamps.

 



This card seemed to be one of your favorites and was such fun to make!  Find the full post HERE.  I used Distress Inks in Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen to watercolor the gorgeous AALL & Create Flower Pots stamp set.  I cut the little tags from leftover inky paper and layered with  more AALL & Create stamping

Flower Pots stamps available at Topflight Stamps.


My final card features a favorite stamp set by Raquel, AKA Scrapcosy for PaperArtsy, set ESC16.  I layered with some favorite ephemera for another vintage style collage card.  You can find the details on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog HERE.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Make sure to follow the CLC blog for more coffee/tea themed inspiration and thanks to Amy and Helen for the invitation to share my projects.  Big hugs, Autumn

These last few cards were created for Darkroom Door Stamps directly.  This first two cards were blogged with other ideas using the Vintage Label Frame stamp HERE.  I am absolutely CRAZY about this stamp and its sister set.





This card was one of my favorites, featuring that same Handwritten Script stencil and the Botanical Script stamp set.  You can find it blogged HERE.

And finally a couple of cards I shared on Instagram (@sewpaperpaint).  The bottles card HERE and the Crazy Bird card HERE.  I truly love Darkroom Door stamps and am honored to represent them whenever I can.  Have a great day!  Autumn

Mixed Media PaperArtsy Posts for Topflight Stamps

Hello dear friends!  I have neglected my blog of late because I find it quite difficult to create duplicate posts on a regular basis.  The remedy, I have decided, is to give you a few power packed posts with my latest creations from the companies and teams to which I contribute regularly.  First up, I've chosen to share all of the PaperArtsy projects I have made this year for the Topflight Stamps blog.  This first pair of cards was posted HERE.  I shared a neat tutorial for dying tissue paper in the post.  I used stamps by Lynne Perrella and Alison Bomber for PaperArtsy.

These may have been my favorite projects of the year.  I shared a mixed media journal and greeting card in THIS post.  I used the Eileen Hull Wrap Journal with one of my all time favorite stamp sets by Gwen LaFleur for PaperArtsy.  I share a really cool technique for Direct to Paper in this post, which correlates with THIS video tutorial.  

The Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal Die is hard to find!  Grab yours while you can on Amazon.

 
 

I shared a fun technique for using PaperArtsy Infusions Powders in THIS post, featuring Sara Naumann stamps and stencils.  I made another video tutorial and shared that HERE.  I used Magenta and Terracotta Infusions and stamps by Sara Naumann.


 
 


Finally, my inaugural post on the Topflight Stamps Design Team shared HERE.  These cards feature Mini Stamps by PaperArtsy with a quirky flair.  Such fun!



 
 
I absolutely love this company and am proud to be an affiliate!

Vintage Collage Journaling with Darkroom Door Stamps


Hi friends!  I'm very happy to have come across this nearly completed altered journal in my recent art room shuffle.  How could I have forgotten it!  I decided immediately to get a new spread added to it.  I've picked up the most amazing quote stamp by Darkroom Door and in the theme of the journal, picked out a "found relative" to coordinate.  She reminds me much of myself as a girl...


I layered some beautiful vintage ephemera from my friend Madelyn with an envelope mailed to me by my friend Wanda, adding layers of stamping on the base with the Abstract 06 stamp and the Number Medley set.  


I made the strip on the side with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide and the Darkroom Door Spanish Tile stamp (my fav <3).  I cut up leftovers to make faux washi tape for the opposite side of the spread.  I mounted the Quote stamp over the AMAZING new Vintage Label Frame stamp stamped in cherry red.  I'm ever so pleased with this journal thus far and have two more spreads to go, along with the cover art.  Wish me luck!  Since it's been such a while, I thought I would share the previous pages with you...


Last I shared this spread on the A Vintage Journey blog.



My first spread on posted HERE.  Remember, this was an old address book I found thrifting.



My second spread can be found HERE.



And another spread HERE.  Thanks for looking!  Hugs, Autumn
