Painted Seasons Card Tutorial


Hi Friends! Today's card was created by Stella MacKay, for our Leader's Project Sheet group. Stella used our new "Painted Seasons Bundle", which is available for FREE with a $120 order until March 31st. As you could tell from my previous post, I am just smitten with both the stamp set and the Designer Series Paper in this bundle!!!! The coordinating dies for the "Painted Seasons" will be available on March 1st. The sentiment on this card is from "Part of My Story", which is another free stamp set during Sale-a-bration, with a $60 order.  I hope you enjoy today's tutorial!

  • Stamp sets: Painted Seasons Bundle, Part of My Story , Crackle Paint (148752)
  • Cardstock & Paper: Early Espresso (119686), Crumb Cake (120953), Shimmery White (101910), Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (see above – available free in a bundle)

Measurements:
  • Crumb Cake card base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” then folded in half; 2” x 3”
  • Early Espresso: 3-3/4” x 5”, 2” x 3”
  • Designer Series Paper: 3-1/2” x 4-3/4”
  • Shimmery White: three scraps each 1-1/2” x 2”
  • Ribbon: 7” and 2-1/2”
Instructions:
  1. Stamp Crackle Paint on card base with Crumb Cake ink.
  2. Adhere Designer Series Paper to Early Espresso layer with SNAIL Adhesive.
  3. Using SNAIL horizontally across Designer Series Paper piece about 1-1/2” from bottom then press ribbon into it and wrap around back and affix ends with SNAIL.
  4. Stamp one pinecone in Crumb Cake and two in Early Espresso on Shimmery White card stock then die cut with pinecone die using Big Shot.
  5. Stamp sentiment from Part of My Story in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake card stock. Punch out. Punch again from smaller Early Espresso. Cut the Early Espresso in half width-wise using Paper Snips and adhere to back of sentiment with SNAIL Adhesive so it creates a layer. Two Early Espresso halves will not meet in back.
  6. Create a spray of three pinecones by adhering them at their bottom with Mini Glue Dots. If you have a household stapler, stapling once at the bottom so all three pinecones are captured will keep it very secure when handling.
  7. Fold over the shorter ribbon piece in half. Trim ends. Spread them apart and adhere at joint with one Mini Glue Dot. Using another Mini Glue Dot, attach to spray of pinecones.
  8. Using Mini Glue Dots again, adhere sentiment piece to bottom of pinecones so they display to left of sentiment.
  9. With Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere Designer Series Paper piece to card base then sentiment to DSP piece.
  10. Add two Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to sides of sentiment.
