3 for 1 Verve Stamps and Darkroom Door Cards


Happy Sunday!  My fam wanted to sleep in today so we are going to late service and I had a moment to pop these cards in a post.  I took some time just to play and make some cards for some of my favorite challenges.  I woke up yesterday morning with this shaker card in my brain and got straight to work.  This fun sentiment is from the Kindness Matters stamp set.


This time I made my shaker with fun foam and glue.  They never turn out perfect, but it's fun and I'm happy with it.  :)


I layered over a Prima doily and added a 49 and Market flower.  The paper is forever old and is by Glittz.



I realized this was my last yellow paper in my stash, then I happened to find a pad for $5 at Tuesday Morning and I felt I just had to make a second card with it.  I totally love the "Use Yellow" Diva Inspiration challenge this month!  This stamp is from Scripture Medley 4.  The butterfly is from a Tim Holtz die, and the ribbon is by him too.  For the life of me I can't remember buying the label die, but it was in my stash and I was happy to find it!  LOL!



Friday I spent some time playing with a new Darkroom Door stamp for the April Facebook Challenge, Mother's Day/Feminine.  I'm not totally thrilled with this card.  It was the first thing I've made in weeks, so I guess I was feeling rusty.  Anyway, I love the stamp (Henry and Harriet) and need to use it on a smooth paper next time.



I got these fabric doilies on clearance at Michael's when I was in Columbia with Sara Emily.  I loooooove them!


I embossed this dainty sentiment by Penny Black in gold and paired with Tim's word stickers.


The flower is handmade with a center of Art Stones and the leaves are Tim's too.  And I happily found this pack of vintage seam binding for 10 cents when I went to NC to buy my daughter's prom dress.  There's an awesome thrift shop along the way!  Score!  :)  Well, that's it for me.  Have a great Sunday friends!

Nice cards, Autumn! I love the strong contrasts in the first one and the clever shaker, burlap butterflies--brilliant and you might fall in love with number three if just a spot of contrasting color was added to the portrait stamp? Beautiful bow!

Very beautiful creations.

Meihsia Liu said...

Wow... all these cards are gorgeous! Autumn. Love all the fabulous details and embellishments you created on these cards. Great design! :)

Margaret Mifsud said...

Wow!! All of these are awesome! Great colour choices .. love the yellow .. and magical details! Hard to pick a fave but I think the shaker card might just be a little ahead of the others. So bright and happy and fun. But then, I really love the texture of the butterfly and the ribbon on the second card and the quote is really beautiful! And the third is so beautifully vintage .. the touch of gold looks fabulous .. I really love that too! Nope, cannot pick a fave, they are all too, too gorgeous!!
Have a wonderful day!! hugs xx

Oh, Autumn, what gorgeous cards! I love Verve stamps, and I love the sentiment and Scripture verse you've used for the first two cards. What a stunning layout for each one, and I love the yellow with the blue -- such a wonderful combination. I've yet to make a shaker card, but I sure need to try one someday. I love how you've made yours and have pinned both of these cards. Your vintage card is so beautiful as well, and I love the colors and the beautiful flower. Stunning, sweet friend! Have a beautiful week! Hugs and love! xoxo

You have such an eye for colour Autumn, with those blues and ochres, pinks and browns each one as creative as the next. I love the idea of the shaker card with it's heart warming sentiment. A beautiful sight to behold on the 1st of May.

So beautiful! I love the uniqueness of each one. That doily die cut on the first card really caught my eye. And the mustard and rich blue is an amazing combination.

Oh, these cards are beautiful, Autumn! I love your yellow papers and that awesome shaker (looks perfect to me) with the doily behind it! Your ribbon, flower and lace are perfect accents. Your 2nd card is beautiful as well, but I really love the pink one! Why aren't you happy with it?? I love your background, the reverse score lines and stamped stitches...that stamp is awesome, I love love it! I love your embossing behind the stamped image and flower & leaves and seam binding (woo hoo, what a find!) The partial book page is a great touch. Beautiful cards!!! Hugs :-)
